Some ideas:

* Give free credits?
* Signature campaign: pay per post, like this one: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=877765.0
* Ads on BTT
* Referrals?
* Ads in Signature Overview thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=907578.0

BTT Ads:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=908694.0

https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adstats

1,352,465 / 11 = 122,951 impressions per slot per day

$0.5 per click at 1% click ratio - pretty darn expensive!

On the other hand, targeted audience.

I think we need to buy BTT ads and give free credits too. It'll attract players to our projects :)

For free credits there needs to be some protection, otherwise people can just withdraw it.

And that's complicated to track. But might still implement it...

Want to resurrect this topic, since we will need to promote Project A soon.

Any ideas? (BTT ads are out of the questions, don't want to give theymos a single penny).

Could use some in-game credits, like casinos do, something like "double your first deposit" or just give $5 to each new user, but not sure how to prevent people from creating multiple accounts or from immediately withdrawing it.

Coinmarketcap.com is a major place to do adds - www.coinmarketcap.com/currencies/#USD

400 clicks / $1,000 for banners sounds a bit expensive, but other options are interesting, although not very clear:

Reddit is a good place to buy adds too - https://www.reddit.com/advertising

Also the major crypto-currency related social networks - https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/the-biggest-bitcoin-forums-communities-on-the-web/

The free press release on Coindesk sounds pretty good - http://www.coindesk.com/press-releases/

Logo design competition, serves a purpose, and who doesn't like the idea of winning a few coins.

Started a simple signature campaign to test how effective it is:

You having a negative trust at BTT probably doesn't help the promotion of CryptoPlay (and Simcoin)?

Everybody knows the trust system there is broken.

Another idea to draw people to CryptoPlay games is to create a nice landing page at https://cryptoplay.net, which can be optimized for certain keywords (SEO). For example, I don't think it would be very hard to get a good ranking in Google for the search term 'bitcoin game'.

Of course we would need to think it through what exactly to put on that page and how it should look.

(In the future the cryptoplay.net page can be transformed into a game platform, with global accounts (e.g. register, login, deposit, withdraw). This will allow players to play multiple games with just one 'wallet' and without having to log in multiple times.)

Good idea about global accounts, like battle.net, I like it.

For now I thought to just put the list of projects on the home page.

Something like:

* Cryptoman (suspended)
* 8-ball
