Invite a Friend to Stronghold Kingdoms and Earn up to $80 of In-Game Currency

London, UK9 th February, 2012 – Stronghold Kingdoms is offering players up to $80 worth of Crowns, the game’s virtual currency, for each friend invited into the game through the new “Invite a Friend” feature.

Firefly Studios will match each invited player’s first purchase of Crowns and credit the same amount to the inviting player, up to the value of $80. Players can invite their friends to play Kingdoms in-game by clicking on “Invite a Friend” under the “My Account” drop-down menu in the top bar. You can then invite as many of your friends as you like, up to 30 at a time.

“All our data suggests that Kingdoms players want to share the game with their friends” said Nick Tannahill, Marketing Officer at Firefly. “So we’re giving them two things, an easy way to spread the word and the incentive of up to $80 worth of Crowns per invited friend, depending on the size of their first Crowns purchase. We hope the players like it, whether they want to get their friends involved or just want some free Crowns!”
