The 3-D Virtual World There.com is gearing up for the Winter There Games starting at the end of this week! There Games are basically like the Olympics and are held in the Summer and the Winter. Thereians are divided up into sixteen teams, separated by your avatar’s name tag color. Everyone is invited to play in this fun and friendly virtual world competition.
Participants earn points for their team and the team with the most points at the end of the Winter There Games takes home a gold medal and of course bragging rights. Events happen at all hours of the day and range from buggy racing, hide and seek, trivia, card games and so much more. Whatever your interests are in our virtual community, you’re likely to find activities to enjoy with friends.
