The sale will include standard and premium LANDs, and also exclusive larger ESTATEs that will be put up for auction directly on OpenSea, as detailed below:
385 LANDs will be for sale directly from The Sandbox website
45 Premium LANDs located directly next to major brands will be sold on The Sandbox website, packaged with a bundle of exclusive NFTs
12 ESTATEs will be auctioned via OpenSea

Premium LANDs located in the neighborhoods of major brands are particularly scarce, and come with exclusive premium digital collectibles for fans of those brands. Premium LANDs also increase staking rewards and allow owners to use their collectibles in Game Maker to create unique experiences.
Registration for the sale is open to anyone, based on the raffle system introduced in December 2022 to ensure a fair purchasing process. Opportunities to participate in both standard and Premium LAND sales will be granted via:
A raffle system, which will ensure fairness of access to LAND (starting 14 February)
A KYC process, which will validate that all entrants are individuals with sufficient SAND (at least 1,011 SAND) on the Polygon network to purchase a LAND in their account.
An individual can register for the standard or Premium LAND sale, or both.
“This new neighborhood allows brands, creators, and fans to build the future of digital entertainment, a future based on true ownership,” said Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “On top of being a great place to play, the Voxel Madness neighborhood will also be a hub to champion a brand new form of interactive entertainment.”
