Spread cheer all over the islands!
Sleigh event eventboard en

Pike wants to build the Holiday Sleigh and asks Finn and the islanders to help build it to spread the Holiday Cheer. You will need to use specific items at specific tiers to level up the Sleigh (similar principle to the Grand Balloon event).

How to get

The Holiday Sleigh is available from December 13th 17h UTC and the event runs until December 27th 04h UTC.
You can place the base of the Sleigh in the waters around your island by dragging it in from the game's build menu (free).

Levelling Up and Rewards

Upgrade your Sleigh by "feeding" it with specific items, at specific tiers, from your mills or harvesters, or collected from TradePost orders :
