Chinese new Year is upon us and we’d like to share some deets on a special event we’re hosting as well as introduce y’all to a new member of the Snook Special Skins family — The 11th Blook Tiger [or a s we like to call her — “Eleven” (No relation to Jane Ives or Hopper. We’re not sure about Millie Bobby Brown, ’cause she’s awesome enough to be related.)]
But first thing’s first.
Snook’ Chinese’ New Year Event of pure awesomeness
The key details to remember
- When: From Tuesday, February 1ST [noonish CET] to February 8th in the arvo.
- Where: https://app.playsnook.com/
- Look & Feel: Festive Lair and game-map with some decorations that fluctuate between cultural appropriation and ignorant imperialism [Pleaser don’t be mad — we’re ignorant and we know it — but we mean well] .
- Gifts! So pay attention, during the Chinese’ New Year Event of pure awesomeness, for every kill you make you will be rewarded with a special limited-edition gift (unless a Trait is dropped). You’re welcome 😉
More about the Chinese’ New Year Event’s gifts
There will be 3 types of gifts:
- A special limited-edition Trait that you will only be able to get as a gift
- A shiny newly-minted snook
- $SNK in varying amounts
During the event, every time a snook dies without dropping a Trait, a gift will drop instead.
Once the snook leaves the game (either because it died or because it successfully extracted), the Snooker will be routed to the Lair (the main-screen) where a pop-up screen will appear — see below:
There will also be a limited-edition Special Skin — The 11th Blook Tiger, that will only be available during the Chinese’ New Year event.
Here’s her story
The 11th Blook Tiger — is a new AI-powered Special Skin distilled from the amalgamated essence of three mythical tigers [in a quantum computing process so secret and advanced it is under the jurisdiction of section 7]. The first two are very famous. The Black Tiger, ruler of the Winter season and governor of the Water elementals, and the Blue Tiger, ruler of the Spring season and governor of the Earth elementals. Hence the name Blook. The third should also have been famous, perhaps the most famous, as she was, if to quote Jack Black’s narration: “…a legendary warrior, whose Kung Fu skills were the stuff of legend.” But alas her name was lost in the annals of history. She is the eleventh tigress of Canton (which unfortunately are called “The Ten Tigers of Canton”). It is said that possessing the 11th Blook Tiger Special Skin imbues its user with skills that is the “ stuff of legend”…
Feburary is gonna be busy… can you keep up?
