The Pets game is a unique feature on Tagged that allows you to 'own', 'buy' and 'sell' other members like a fantasy team. You can compete with all your Tagged Friends to see who can gain the highest value or just buy and sell Pets as you meet cool new people in the game! To get started, let's go over a few basic concepts of the game:
1) Earning Value- Increasing your value in the Pets game is easy- If you are 'bought' by another user, your value will increase by 10%. Your overall ranking in Pets is determined by this number.
2) Gaining Cash- You gain cash in four ways: a) By logging in to Tagged every four hours, you'll get a cash bonus based on how many pets you own at the time, b) anytime you or one of your Pets is purchased by another user, you'll get half the profit (the difference between the new and old values of the purchased Pet), c) being the first owner (all-time, when the Pet's value is still $500) of any Pet will net you a $1000 bonus or d) converting your Tagged Gold to Pets Cash via the green Pets Cash Bar on your Pets - Home page.
3) Assets- Your Pets Assets are calculated by adding your Pets cash + the combined purchase prices (their value when you bought them) of all the Pets you currently own (e.g. If you have $10,000 Pets cash and purchased 3 pets that were valued at $1,000, $2,000, and $5,000 respectively: your Assets = $18,000). Your Pets level is determined by your total Assets figure.
4) Wishers- All of the people who have added you to their wish list. You can view them by clicking the Wishers link on your Pets - Home page.
5) Pets- Any Pet that you've purchased will appear in the “Pets” tab on your Pets Home page. Make sure to take good care of them!
6) Wish List- When you see a Pet that you'd like to own, you can add them to your Wish List so you can easily keep track of them and buy them when you have the cash!
7) Achievements- Click the 'View all' link to see a list of all the achievements you've earned while playing Pets!
8) Announcements- Various messages about updates to Pets and special offers will appear here periodically. They can be closed by clicking the 'x' in the top right corner of the announcement.
9) Rankings- Keep an eye on this tab to see how you stack up against your fellow Pets players!
10) Browse Pets- If you're in the market for a new Pet, go here to find one you like! You can use the filters on the left to find Pets all around the world and sort them by Gender, Age, Location or Value... whatever kind of Pet you desire! You can buy new Pets from the Browse page, or by clicking the user to see their individual Pets page!
11) Buy Pets- If you're looking for a quick way to find pets, you can use this tab to view individual Pets within your filters and buy or skip them with a single click!
Now that you know the rules, get out there and work your way to the top and remember to have fun, because it's just a game!

Pets cash is a virtual currency and cannot be redeemed for real money. An increase in the Pets cash value of your Pets does not translate to an increase in actual dollar value for redemption purposes.
