First of all, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, including those who live outside the US and may only know of our tradition from the vantage of curiosity. It is absolutely my favorite holiday as the whole focus is giving thanks for what we have and what we share together. In that spirit, I wish to thank each and everyone of you. I know that I may sound like a broken record, but the reason I’m committed to Groupees is I value what all of you bring to our community. Without your involvement and contributions, we are really just another site selling things for cheap.
I do apologize for the delay in posting any updates on the dev front but it was a busy Summer + I wanted to wait until Trading Coins were implemented which I’m happy to announce indeed was recently accomplished.
If you happened to purchase Be Mine 14 and didn’t already notice, you will now see a Coins tab on your Purchases Page with your coins listed. Be Mine 14 purchasers received either the $3 Jonny Antimatter Coin or the $1 Slug Plutonium Coin. These coins were special as they increase in value as the total number of coins in circulation decrease. For instance, the value of the $3 Jonny Antimatter Coins has already increased to over $4.
Dynamite Entertainment is curating its first Comic bundle with Groupees, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you really should: Groupees.com/dynamite1. One of the contributing artists in the bundle, the renown, Jae Lee, has also agreed to offer some amazing top contributor prizes. We did a little Q&A with Mr. Lee, and this is what he had to say: Continue Reading
Today we released some updates to user Profile pages on Groupees including our version of The Wall where you can represent yourself and share your love of games, music, video and other media.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be adding lots of new interactive widgets to user Walls including an in-system Trading capability.
We’ve also added Filters on the Profile game listings so you can easily sort your Groupees purchases and locate Unused Keys. Click on your name upper right on Groupees.com and check out all the shiny new stuff!
I hope that everyone is preparing for a wonderful holiday season. On our end, we are quite busy putting together some holiday bundles of joy for everyone while also continuing to work diligently on new platform features. Here’s a quick update on the dev front. We will be rolling out some new features, likely next week, including the first iteration of the Groupees Wall.
GROUPEES AGREES TO TAKE OVER BUNDLE-IN-A-BOX [PRESS RELEASE]
Groupees will host Bundle-in-a-Box accounts and run future Bundle-in-a-Box bundles at Groupees.com
Portland OR USA, November 13, 2014: Groupees and Kyttaro Games have reached an agreement for Groupees to take over responsibility for the Bundle in a Box Bundle.

We rolled out some new stuff this week, including a new home page and Chat Powers, the latter of which most of you certainly noticed. The feature has prompted lots of comments, some good, some bad, but rest assured we are listening. For my part, I wanted to explain a few things. First, we’ve introduced Status levels based on the number of $ spent on Groupees. For now, there are 3 levels, Newbie, Fanboy and Playa. Chat Powers start at the Fanboy level which is reached at $20 in spend. We’ll be expanding this concept and adding a few more status levels. This is both to reward our most loyal customers but also to create some gamification across the community.
