What are Pods?
Game Pods are the official currency of Skillpod.com and its affiliates. Game Pods are also awarded to players for winning tournaments or awarded for special events and promotions.
How does the Power-ups work?
There are many games on Skillpod currently that offer players the option to play the games with Power-ups. Games that have Power-ups have (PuP) added after the game name.
There are different Power-ups to choose from for each game and they perform different tasks. You can buy them before starting a game by using your Pods.
In the game you can then select these Power-ups to advance through difficult sections in the games.

Once the contest is set up you can go and play the game. You and any other players who wish to participate, then need to pay the entry fee and this goes into the prize pool. The contest would run for 48 hours from the time it was created. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place scores share in the spoils.
