    Hello Bedrock CubeCrafters!

    It's that time of year again, where snow falls, fireplaces are lit and presents are wrapped! Christmas is a huge event for CubeCraft, and we love to go overboard! This year Christmas is bigger on our Bedrock network than ever! With the return of Snowman Survival and our famous present hunt. Read below for more details on this update!

    Snowman Survival joins the wonders of CubeCraft Games on Bedrock once again. Only available during Christmas, this mini-game brings a chilly feeling to the infection themed game. Snowman Survival allows 8 players and there are 3 maps available to join and choose from.

    Snowman Survival is a fun game where the objective is to survive as long as you can, without the Snowman giving you frostbite! The game starts with 8 players, then the sacred Snowman performs a ritual and the starting Snowman is chosen. The remaining players are human survivors and have a brief grace period of 7 seconds to run away before the Snowman is released. Humans need to run and hide whilst dodging the Snowballs that the Snowmen throw! The first Snowman needs to throw his Snowballs at survivors, this will convert the Survivors in to more Snowmen.

    As a Snowman, you have to throw your snowball. Left or right clicking gives you a quick throw, with a predefined amount of force. If your throw hits a survivor, they will be converted into a snowman. HOWEVER as a Snowman you only get ONE snowball, so use it wisely! If you miss, you'll have to run and fetch the Snowball by walking over it, or wait 5 seconds and it will come back to you automatically.

    When playing as a survivor, after 30 seconds of being released, you will notice there are powerups scattered around the arena which help you run, leap and teleport away from the Snowmen. Some powerups also allow Survivors to stun and gravity explode the Snowmen, as well as trick them with decoy survivors.

    The Starting Snowman has the ability to track players with a compass. If the Snowmen don't convert all the Survivors before the timer ends, they will explode and lose!

    If you're wondering how stats work in Snowman Survival, that's simple! You collect Medals. At the end of the game, both of the Snowmen and Survivors can earn "Snowman Survival Medals". You'll get medals for the following actions:
    - Every 30 seconds you are alive as a Survivor
    - Converting a Survivor into a Snowman as a Snowman
    - Stunning a Snowman as a Survivor
    - Staying alive as a Survivor the whole game

We've hidden 12 presents round our lobby. If you collect them all, you'll win an awesome "[Present Hunt 2019]" prefix and Snow cage!

    Nice update! I’m surprised that the traditional win effect has been swapped to a cage and a prefix and is made into 12 presents instead of 15
