Do you want to play a game? Six randomly chosen teams will go head to head in a week-long friendly competition in the virtual world There.com. Island Games run May 20th through May 27th.
Events for Island Games are being added daily to the Activities Page. Sign up in advance for events that spark your interest and inner competitor. Once the Island Games have started, you can keep track of your team’s points with the official Island Games’s Scoreboard.
Visit the Island Games Neighborhood and stop by the Welcome Center for more information. You can find your team’s hangout in the back of the Neighborhood. Decorate the Lot with your team and hang out together before the start of the games.
Good luck to all of the teams!
A lot of outlaws have been rolling into town during the Thereian Stampede. The Sheriff has been working overtime to tame the wild West and needs your help! Are you good at tracking down bad guys? Go on the hunt for There’s Most Wanted Outlaws!
Each day during Thereian Stampede, there will be a new wanted poster tacked to the wall of the Sheriff’s Office. Visit the jail and look for the most recent outlaw added to the most wanted list. Once you’ve identified your criminal, form a posse and head out West. All outlaws are wanted dead or alive. You must capture a photo of the outlaw of the day to show proof that you crossed paths. Send your pic to email@example.com. For every outlaw you capture on film, you will be entered to win a prize or 1,000 Tbux.
Sign up for the next event at the Sheriff’s Office and form a search party with other attendees.

Join your name tag color team in participating in the Winter There Games events over the next two weeks. Not sure which team you are on? Stop by the Winter There Games Welcome Center and click on the handy name tag sign and it will tell you which team you belong to.
Once you know the color of your team, you’ll want to join the special name tag club associated with your color in order to communicate with your teammates and keep up to date about events they are attending. Every name tag team has a link to an in-world Instant Message on their club page so that you can communicate in real-time and summon other members to your location.
Next, you’ll want to check out your name tag color team hangout in the Winter There Games Village. Think of the hangouts as a spot to tailgate before the Winter There Games events start. You can plan meet and greets, parties, roundups or practice your card game skills with other teammates prior to the Games.
Everyone on your team has hosting rights to the Lot. You can decorate your team hangout by setting an Event and dropping items. The items will remain out in the Lot until the next person who sets an event clears the Lot. It’s a good idea to save your layout so that you can set it back out at a later time if you need it. We ask that you stick to decorating your own name tag color Lot and let the other teams take care of their own hangouts.
You can find decorative There Games items in the Auctions to spruce up the place! Keep your team color and the Winter There Games in mind when decorating your team hangout.
We look forward to checking out the creative and fun builds all of the different teams come up with. Find your team hangout and start decorating!
