This Week in Happy Wars…

HappyWars1

The Happy Wars 2nd Anniversary celebration month continues this week, with bargain prices at the Item Shop.

The Item Shop bargain sale campaign features 33% off for support items, and “Class Stickers” are a whopping 50% off!
“Class Stickers” are a support item used when playing Happy Card, to limit the obtained item to a specific Class. Class Stickers don’t have to be used immediately — save them for when you need them.
This is a huge opportunity to pick up Class Stickers for when a special item comes up that you can’t afford to miss.

The “Castle Defense” rules are still available since last week.
Repel the waves of man-eating plants from outer space and pick up deluxe reward items!

New items lined up for Happy Card include the weapons “Dark Lance” for Warriors, “Ogre Claws” for Clerics, and “T-Rex Wand” for Mages.
These new items as well as Halloween items are easier to get in this week’s Happy Card Limited Edition.

The Item Shop bargain sale campaign, Castle Defense rules, and this week’s Happy Card Limited Edition continue until October 29 (Wednesday).

We’ll be showing a sneak peek of the upcoming game from Press Play, Project Totem! And to make it even better, members of Press Play will be joining us via Skype to answer questions about the game!
