A new year awaits! Full of promise, opportunity and pies! No better way ter celebrate than ter pelt yer best hobbit friends with snowballs! 

   Date: Tuesday January 1st
Time: 7:30PM UK/GMT (2:30PM servertime)
Location: Snowball range, Winterhome, Frostblufff

Them say the weather forecast fer Winterhome is bad, so the village is likely ter close again soon. No better time, then, than ter go play in the snow!

So let us gather our hobbit forces, enter them snowy fields, throw snowballs at each other and be merry! I am sure there will be lots of firework too! And perhaps some mulled wine by the fire while we wait fer the next round?

If the weather is grand and many hobbits show up, we will try fer a nice group drawing as well!

Welcome hobbits!


Each player can do the snowball quests twice each day (one easy task, and one hard). However, if you want to keep playing, just fail your task, and you can try it them for as long as you like (or until you're successful).

Should you finish both tasks, it is possible to unlock more with Festival Tickets (from the store), or just run around, throw regular snowballs and be a target. 

Remember, there are no rules, no points, no competition as such, just lots of hobbity fun!

We'll also see if we can manage a group drawing/screenshot of the present hobbits. So dress up merrily to celebrate the new year!
