    How could we forget Christmas Games?! We've got a BRAND NEW game this year. Introducing...
    Snowman Survival

    Snowman Survival is a fun new game where the objective is to survive as long as you can, without the Snowman giving you frostbite! The game starts with 8 players, the sacred Snowman performs a ritual and the starting Snowman is chosen. The human survivors have a brief grace period of 7 seconds to run away before the Snowman is released.

    The Snowman being selected.

    Humans need to run and hide - 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 TWO ways to shoot! Left clicking gives you a quick throw, with a predefined amount of force. Holding Right Clock will charge your throw - It takes time but you'll be able to throw up to three times as far! You'll see this charging in your XP bar.

    If your throw hits a survivor, they will be converted into a snowman. HOWEVER as a Snowman you only get ONE Snowball - 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.

    The Starting Snowman has the ability to track players every 30 seconds (by pressing the swap hands key), which the other Snowmen can see to hunt down the Survivors! If the Snowmen don't convert all the Survivors before the timer ends, they will explode and lose!

    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... yes you heard me... GRAVITY EXPLODE!

    Speed boost – Gives you extra speed for 10 seconds.
    Shield – Gives you a shield that protects any snowball hit (lasts 15 seconds).
    Leap – Leaps you forward.
    Fireballs – Gives you 3 fireballs that will give Snowmen blindness and slowness for 5 seconds.
    Blink – Teleports where you are looking.
    Jump Boost – Gives you jump boost for 15 seconds.
    Snowman stabber – Stuns a Snowman for 10 seconds making them unable to move or shoot.
    Gravity explosive – Takes 1 second to charge up after use and causes an explosion that will shoot nearby Snowmen and snowballs to fly away from you.
    Instant wall – Builds a brick wall in front of you in 2 seconds.
    Decoy – Creates a clone of yourself that will last either 30 seconds or until decoy gets hit with a snowball. When decoy is alive you are completely invisible.

    Medals
    At the end of the game, both of the Snowmen and Survivors can earn "Snowman Survival Medals". You'll get reward for the following actions (you'll also earn some points for them):

    - 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

    Wrapping it up here.

    Bringing back Present Rush...

    Whats this? The return of Present Rush?... You bet your cotton stockings it is! However we've been working hard to make the game even better than
    previous years! The aim of the game is to collect the pieces of fuel from the middle arena and bring them back to your present production zone to feed your generators. As the generators are filled with fuel they will start producing presents. The player with the most presents at the end of the game wins! Remember - the presents don't count until they fall into Santa's bag at the end of the production belt.

    Powerups will spawn within the arena to help you collect the most fuel as well as help you ruin the chances of other players collecting precious fuel. Other players also have the ability to punch and steal your fuel from you, and you should avoid taking fall damage - you'll drop fuel as a consequence! You may think collecting the fuel from the arena is simple, but you're sadly mistaken. Overtime the arena decays, making it harder and harder to collect the fuel. If you fall off the arena, you'll lose all the current fuel pieces you're carrying.
