For the event this weekend, you will need the new game update 1.6.0, with fishing included.
The Event resembles normal play a lot, but with one big difference: you get points for catching fish and for hunting wild animals. The goal of each family is first to survive and build enough technology to become efficient at fishing and hunting, then to score as many points as possible. After the event we will post the results for all families, so you may want to remember which families you have played in.
Note that we don’t have teams that stay over the whole event this time. If your family dies out, your score can’t be further improved. In your next life you will be part of a different family.
PK will be disabled during the event (with that many bows and arrows, mistakes are bound to happen otherwise).
Families will be formed using the new system, where Japanese speakers form families together and English speakers and other non-Japanese speakers form families separate from the Japanese.
