Ye may remember the Eggnog Incidence of 2013 resulting in Yeti pets being squished into tiny boxes by the crazed developers. While the Department o' Mythical Creatures discouraged all pirates from opening Yeti Boxes, they've recently discovered the Yeti don't mind the small boxes at all. In fact, they enjoy the cozy space since it reminds them of their North Pole igloos. The Department has also begrudgingly agreed that awesome-looking Yeti wandering around the island don't have a negative impact on pirate life and add to the atmosphere of most pirate gatherings.
With the recent opening of a portal between the oceans and the North Pole, Yeti have been appearing in more locations and they've embraced the festive holiday season with red, green and ice blue hats. For each $9.99 spent in a single purchase, receive a Yeti Box! Yeti pets are still rare and elusive creatures, so these seasonal boxes also contain Ice Blue Chroma, Yeti dolls and furniture, Holiday Favors, and Ice Blue Trinkets!

A never before seen Kraken — the Frost Kraken has attacked Captain Snowbeard while transporting his cargo of toys, scattering them across the seven seas. Now Captain Snowbeard is distracted from his normal duties, solely focused on one thing — revenge!
His intense vendetta is threatening the holiday season! Collect the scattered toys and use them to help Captain Snowbeard track down and defeat the Frost Kraken and save the day!
Each ocean has been divided into 5 teams, with pirates from the same crew all being placed on the same team. Pirates can participate and earn points for their team by defeating Brigands and Barbarians to win toy parts and assembling them into Gunwhales, Soldier Scouts, and Octo Bombers trophies near the docks on certain islands. Full details can be found here.
The competition ends on Friday, January 2nd at 3 PM PST.
