Review Cross The Ages ($CTA) – A universe in which fantasy and science fiction come together.
Cross The Ages is a new metaverse game. It is a free-to-play game, based on free-to-read novels, that allows anybody with access to a smartphone or desktop to enter the Universe to start collecting digital cards.
Concept project – What is Cross The Ages?
Cross the ages ©️ is a universe in which fantasy and science fiction come together. The two worlds share the single continent of Artellium. To the west lies Arkhante, masters of magic and summoning. To the east, the city-continent Mantris is home to ultra-connected multicultural people whose technology has invaded everyday life.
The young Malkha, surrounded by her seven Primus, reigns from the capital, Babylonia. To the west, the city-continent Mantris is home to Neurotechs, an ultra-connected multicultural people whose technology has invaded everyday life.
The Amortals, humans who have transferred their minds to super-AIs, run the corporations for which the citizen-shareholders of Mantris work.
CROSS THE AGES is more than an application for collecting game cards, it’s a universe, more precisely a dystopia.
With an exclusive concept of transforming cards from the virtual to the real world. Cross The Ages creates a unique experience of its kind.
It is a bridge between two worlds, the first nostalgic which reminds us of our first purchases of Panini card packs or magic gathering, and the other which is the world of technology where all our information, our memories are digitized.
The game is based on 7 novels which will give hope of at least 10 years to this project.
The first season is composed of 365 various cards of Arkhante and Mantris which will consist to collect more than 290 cards, 52 off series, 10 exclusive, and 7 unique collectibles with different rarities :
Common, Uncommon, Rare, Super rare, Mythics, Alternative, Alternative combo, Exclusive, Unique.
What is the project trying to achieve?
Their vision is to marry the virtual world with the physical world by allowing players to not only hold digital and NFT assets but to be able to bring them to life and into the physical world.
The physical world draws upon nostalgia reminding us of our first collectible cards. The virtual world is where technology lives and our virtual space on the internet is where we live our digitized lives.
Cross The Ages is based on seven novels that will be published over the next seven years. The first book is already published and its corresponding digital cards collection explores the world of high-tech machines as well as the world of wild creatures and monsters. The collection includes 365 collectible cards per year with various levels of scarcity, from 75 digital artists from across the globe.
Cross The Ages is a Metaverse where developers, digital artists, and gamers can contribute to the success of the project by building new cities, creating new games, earning valuable NFTs through adventures, and gathering real-world card collectibles.
The vision of the team is to develop a series of games where users contribute to the evolution of the storyline and take part in the creation of an infinite group of dystopian realms within the Cross The Ages Universe.
Its mission is to build a game where everybody can be part of the Ecosystem.
Cross the Ages is a free-to-play game, based on free-to-read novels, that allows anybody with access to a smartphone or desktop to enter the Universe to start collecting digital cards.
They are the only card game that enables the full value chain cycle from digital cards on mobile phones, through decentralized and mintable non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on a blockchain all the way to physical cards in the real world that is secured with near field communication technology (NFC).
This full lifecycle allows for the creation and accumulation of greater value over time for their players. Due to the game`s cleverly designed fun incentivization mechanisms through quests, challenges and rewards, the players will become exponentially more active in the game and will start exploring the blockchain space within the game. Leveraging smart tokenomics using both an in-game token as well as a decentralized blockchain-based token, users will have the opportunity to fully engage and experience what it takes to go from an in-game asset to a decentralized tradeable asset, then finally into the physical collectible space.
Their mission is to allow their gamers, who embark on the journey early, to earn valuable NFTs throughout the gaming journey, lend their in-game assets, and stake the CTA Tokens for long-term liquidity.
Cross The Ages is a collectible card game based on the rich and exciting universe of the “Cross The Ages” saga.
- Players face off in intense turn-based duels, with each match lasting an average of 5 minutes.
- The objective is to create the best strategy to conquer and control the maximum space within the battle Arena.
- Each player starts the game with a collection of 20 digital cards. Ten cards are then randomly selected and form the player’s deck. The fight can begin!
Arm yourself with courage and ingenuity to become the champion of the Appologium.
What is unique selling point?
Cross The Ages® Universe takes place in a dystopian world where mystical creatures and masters of magic collide with AI-powered cyborgs in a fight for the vast resources of power.
They are a compelling gaming Universe in which:
- Free-to-play meet play-and-earn,
- Physical collectable cards meet NFTs and
- Fantasy meets Sci-Fi!
Cross The Ages collectibles connect the digital with the physical world. Our new and innovative approach to the game allows for digital collectibles to not only exist in the digital world but also take shape into a physical one. The digital experience blends with the physical experience to offer a seamless integration of both worlds and the markets they operate in.
The combination of NFTs as digital identifiers and NFCs serving as the twin identifiers for the physical asset ensures an added value that has not been seen before in the collectible market.
In addition to this unique approach, the Universe in which the saga takes place, as well as the artistic visuals created by over a hundred well-known artists, ensures that Cross The Ages has all the required potential and resources to go far beyond a collectible card game and flourish into its own Metaverse.
They are leveraging blockchain technology, to ensure that their players can:
- Collect cards that will not be subject to any deterioration
- Trace the membership history of each of these digital and physical cards to instantly verify its authenticity
- Guarantee scarcity of the number of cards
- Conduct 100% secure transactions without the fear of buying counterfeit products
- Protect valuable cards from theft all while accessing full Defi interoperability of the cards and tokens that are used in the game for staking, lending, trading, and many more Defi features
Crystals – in-game tokens, a so-called ‘soft currency’. Crystals can be earned and won within the game. Crystals are stable tokens, for ease of use.
Crystals are required for all ‘off-chain’ in-game activities. The tokens have the usual in-game utilities such as buying card packs and skins, buying or unlocking booster packs, and minting cards into NFTs.
Crystals can be exchanged into the CTA Tokens at the then-current exchange rate within the in-game marketplace.
Gold – is a second in-game token, it is also a so-called ‘soft currency’. The token is ‘off-chain’ and therefore not tradeable.
Gold is required for the in-game merging of digital cards, this has a direct utility of defeating bots and ensures fairness of the game for the players. Gold is a stable token.
CTA Token – a utility token granting major game advantages and access to off-series valuable NFTs, special access to tournaments, and access to exclusive content.
Moreover, CTA Token is required for all ‘on-chain’ activities. CTA Token is a tradeable blockchain-based token, the value of which will appreciate as the game develops and advances into a Metaverse.
CTA Tokens are required for minting and merging of NFTs as well as printing NFTs into the physical NFC cards, buying or unlocking booster packs.
After the NFT is printed into the NFC card, those NFTs are frozen within the game and can no longer be printed into NFCs.
CTA Tokens are required to enter Guild competitions and tournaments. The holders of the CTA Token will have the Governance and Voting powers in the direction of the Metaverse development.
CTA Tokens can be exchanged into Crystals at the then-current exchange rate. NFTs – valuable in-game collectibles as non-fungible tokens. The NFTs have a specified limited time frame for minting from digital cards. Once the next collection of cards is available, minting of the previous collection will no longer be possible.
This will incentivize the players to mint NFTs and build buy pressure so that NFTs increase in value over time. There are 2 NFT collections per annum, each of 145 cards per collection.
NFC collectible trading cards – physical collectible cards are encoded with near-field communication technology (NFC) connected to a smart contract on the blockchain. This will verify and validate ownership and possession of each particular card and prevent counterfeiting of physical cards.
Merging of the Cards
Merging of the cards results in more rare and therefore more valuable cards being produced. Off-chain merging of the digital cards in-game requires Gold. On-Chain merging of the NFTs requires CTA Tokens.
As the game develops, Metaverse land will become available for purchase by players who hold CTA Tokens and who wish to mine Crystals and build their own cities. The vibration of the Earth in the Cross The Ages Universe will randomly allocate the Crystals within the available land. The players can also battle other players for the Crystals but can risk leaving their own Crystals unattended.

How to own the token?
Markets and Community
Cross The Ages has crossed the mark of 62, 100 Followers on Twitter.
Cross The Ages develops an in-game marketplace for the in-game tokens Crystals and Gold as well as for CTA Tokens and NFTs.
Moreover, the CTA Tokens will also be traded on Centralized Exchanges and Decentralized Exchanges, where they will be paired with several pools.
Players can lend their cards to other players on the marketplace and earn CTA Tokens.
Players can win cards playing the game when participating in challenges or in special events. Then such cards can be minted into NFTs or merged in order to obtain a more valuable NFT.
The minted NFTs will be tradable on EVM compatible marketplaces, such as OpenSea as well as on the internal marketplace. It will be more advantageous to trade NFTs on the internal CTA marketplace as there will be limited gas fees.
NFC Cards marketplaces
As for the physical cards marketplace, Cross The Ages has a partnership with Cardmarket (https://www.cardmarket.com), the biggest global marketplace for physical cards.
In order to avoid counterfeit products, every card is protected by NFC. The NFC ensures authenticity, provides the history of the asset through transparent traceability and guarantees the person in the possession of the card is the rightful owner.
Cross The Ages excels at bringing bright minds and spectacular talent together, with more than 140 professionals dedicated to this project and collaborating with management, technology, and artistic teams to share the vision of this project with the world.
