TAG City Planning & History
TAG City was built specifically to cater for the leisure time of its citizens. Wherever citizens turn in TAG City there's a game, competition, promotion or good deal being offered. There's something for everyone in TAG City.
The currency used in TAG City is TAG points. The goal of TAG City citizens is to build their wealth in TAG points so that they can purchase real world items, goods and services from the auctions. Yes, you get to buy real stuff with TAG points. Nothing could be more fun than that. Imagine buying goods, cash or a holiday with TAG points? It's well within your grasp when you become a Gold or Platinum member of TAG City.
Turn your unwanted household items into TAG points by selling them through the auction. Trade in the junk that is laying around your house for TAG points. Then use your TAG points to buy great sponsored items from the auctions.
Silver membership to TAG City is FREE. Silver membership doesn't open up all of the city though. To experience everything in the city you will need to upgrade your membership to Gold or Platinum. Upgrading to Gold is as simple as asking a game sponsor to grant you Gold membership. Upgrading to Platinum costs as little as $49.95 per month.
TAG City Plans
TAG City is a games and online auction site designed for an entire community of people who have similar interests.
Setting up the frame work to support the direction we wanted to take TAG City in was over a year in the making. There's so much that had to be done behind the scenes that players would never see or know about. Now that the frame work is in place we can forge ahead with adding new games and services to the TAG City site.
