Get Your Skates On...

It's winter, the lake is frozen, it's time for some fun!

Yes, everyone has their favourite activities when the water gets a little solid so it's time to get everyone in warm clothes and ice skates and have some chilly fun!

As usual, they need your help, so we'll be helping with all the equipment and help that the homesteaders need to enjoy their winter pastimes, from Granny's skating to Doc's Ice Fishing.

As usual we'll see a popup to start...

That will start four missions (all details HERE) and a four step build (all details HERE).

The build itself is a tiny footprinted Rental Shack.

But we'll also see the left hand sideboard, which was the Inferno area, change to a very wintery Ice Pond! It'll build up as we go with more and more homesteaders enjoying themselves on the frozen surface.

As it builds we'll be taken through the story of the homesteaders, getting Doc ready for his Ice Fishing trip, teaching Hank to Skate, outfitting a pair of ice hockey teams and finally playing a game!

We'll see a handful of new things, the first will be a new tree to "heal", the Frozen Cherry Tree! This will need  Boiling Water, a wall post item.

That's on the free gift list along with two other new items, Frozen Roses and Granny's Oven, both crops.

They'll also be in the market...

...along with two items that are new mission reward animals.

All those items will drop parts of the new Ice Skating Collection.

So let's all get our skates on!
