@LCProCODER @GameGod We actually generate that section from the games on the forum that are listed as ‘Featured Games’: https://forum.makecode.com/tag/featured-game (sometimes it gets out of date as it is a step we have to run manually, though)

If you wanna post your games separately on here as well, feel free!

When do these events start?

This started long ago.
About before you joined.

We don’t have a regular schedule for game jams, but we have been trying to hold one every three or four months (see the One Room Jam from March and the 5-second Game Jam from last September). We will definitely announce on the forums before we launch the next one!

my question exactly

It’s actually pretty fun. You use the cricket dude guy and grab blocks and get the tiny snails to their little home

How do you grab blocks?

Get on top of the block and press Down+A button

how do you place them down?
