Find Your Nametag Team for There Games
How can I join a team for There Games?
Congratulations, you are already part of a team! There are sixteen There Games teams based on the sixteen avatar nametag colors. The nametag is the colored bar over your avatar’s head where your username is displayed. Everyone has a nametag color that is randomly generated when you join There.com.
What if I can’t figure out what my nametag color is?
If you are not sure what your nametag color is, it’s easy to find out. Just head over to the Winter Games Welcome Center and find one of the handy nametag signs.
When you click the sign’s action tag, it will tell you what color your nametag is. Once you know your nametag color, find your team club listed here. Joining your team’s club is a great way to meet people, make new friends and keep up to date with what’s going on.
Do I have to join my nametag team’s club to participate in There Games?
While joining your team’s club is a great way to connect with your fellow teammates, it is not required. You can still go to There Games Events and earn points for your team. The event Hosts will be able to see which team you belong to by (you guessed it!) looking at your nametag.
Can I change my nametag color?

Home for the Holidays
Oh the weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s so delightful! Cozy up next to the fire in your very own winter cabin on Frosty Island. Enjoy snow-covered terrain and the beautiful pink, purple and orange skies of this delightful island in There shaped like a snowman. Make yourself at home in a two-story winter cabin located in Santa’s Village. This lovely home offers a dining room, living room, family room and upstairs loft. Complete with outdoor lights and frozen icicles.
The snow-covered cabin is included free with the monthly rental of a one-acre Development Lot. Join the Santa’s Village Development Group first before picking out your new homestead. View the winter cabin listings to find the perfect spot. To rent a holiday cabin for the winter, step into the Lot and go to This Place on your menu bar and clicking information about For Rent. Here is a helpful article about setting up your Development Lot in the Santa’s Village Development Zone.
All tenants who rent a winter cabin in Santa’s Village between now and December 20th will be entered into a random drawing for two months of free rent. The drawing will be held on December 21st. Tenants do not need to be present to win. The winner will be notified by ThereMail so make sure your registered email address is up to date.
You can purchase furniture, artwork and a Christmas tree from Shop Central or the Auctions to decorate your cabin for the holidays. Our Designers have created many different styles of holiday home decor for you to choose from. Once you’ve got your home decorated to your liking, you can create an event and invite your friends and new neighbors to a housewarming party.
If you’d like to build your own home from scratch, you can purchase a PAZ from Shop Central and drop it anywhere around Santa’s Village on the Island of Frosty. Pick and choose what kind of furniture and decorations you would like to have in your home.
