Blocklete Golf is Back for More

Last Updated: July 5, 2023
Turner Sports’ NFT golf game built on the Flow blockchain enables players to trade and train their golfers and get rewarded in Flow currency

Turner Sports’ Blocklete Games debuted on Wednesday the second season of its mobile NFT game Blocklete Golf, built on Dapper Labs‘ Flow blockchain.

Each digital golfer available to play with is an individual NFT, with individual head-to-head matchups and tournaments that can improve the golfer’s — and in turn the NFT’s — value. Consumers can collect, train and trade these golfer NFTs with one another with the ability to earn rewards in Flow stable-coins. The game is currently available in Beta on iOS and Android devices.

“We’re amped for Blocklete Golf to join the growing ecosystem of play-to-earn games and sports on Flow,” Mickey Maher, Dapper Labs’ senior vice president of platform and blockchain partnerships, told Boardroom. “The team at Turner Sports has created a unique experience for sports fans and we’re excited to see Web3 come to life on mobile.”

Each Blocklete golfer has its own unique digital avatar, and users will soon have the ability to deck their players out in unique gear through a re-launched virtual pro shop full of apparel and accessories.

“Blocklete Golf is the first in what we envision being a franchise of play and earn games that we intend to build to provide users compelling gameplay and beautiful NFT products,” said Yang Adija, Turner Sports’ senior vice president of digital league business operations, growth and innovation. “We have been at the forefront of the NFT and blockchain movement in sports and believe that we have a real opportunity to serve sports fans via this new avenue of digital athletes. We’re equally excited for this debut on Flow, the blockchain where sports NFTs live.”

Launched in fall 2020, Blocklete Golf is the first of what Blocklete Games hopes will be many NFT-based mobile sports titles to come in the future.
