Subsequent Event [Line Items]      
Definitive agreement description

On October 23, 2017, we restructured and exercised a game purchase option by entering into a definitive agreement with the game owner MMOJoe pursuant to which SPYR will own all of the game related assets of Pocket Starships, in a cashless transaction, and the publishing agreement with Spectacle as well as the original terms of the Option will be terminated, which means that SPYR will now be able to retain 100% of the revenue generated from the game and will be the sole owner of all of the assets related to the game. The acquisition includes, among other assets, all Pocket Starships related intellectual property, the userbase, artwork, software, internet domains, game store accounts (such as App Store, Play Store, Amazon, and Facebook Gameroom), web portal accounts (Facebook, VK.com, Kongregate, etc.) and internet domains (www.pocketstarships.com). Under the terms of the agreement, the game's owner will receive 8,000,000 restricted shares of SPYR stock (subject to resale gating provisions) with a fair value of $3.2 million and 8,000,000 three-year cash-based options exercisable at $0.50 per share with a fair value of $2,452,000. The Company is currently in the process of determining the accounting for the acquisition.
