Greetings Penguins!

Lots of comments are coming in about how you love the new mission, and some of you have asked about the people who make the stories up. So I thought it would be fabulous to talk to someone who helps write the missions…

Who is your fave mission character and why?

Herbert. Because he reminds me a lot of myself.

herbCutout.jpgWhat’s the coolest thing about making up mission stories?
There’s no such thing as an idea that’s too crazy.

Perhaps most importantly, what’s your favorite kind of candy?
Anything with peanut butter in it.

Send along any ideas you have for missions! (And remember – they can’t be too crazy!)
Happy New Year!

Hello Penguins!

Congratulations – You guys did an amazing job donating your virtual coins to Coins For Change! The Club Penguin Times has the official results, so check it out.

coins.jpgIn Other News: After Screenhog’s post, a lot of you told us how excited you are about the new mission coming on Monday. For those of you who are already agents, you can get prepared by playing some of the previous missions! If you aren’t a member of the PSA, you can become one if your penguin is 30 days old. Click on the M at the top right corner of your Club Penguin window, click the button that says “Become a Secret Agent”, and then take the quiz.

We’d love to know what your favorite mission of all time is – and why you like it the most.

Until then…Waddle on!

Hello Penguins!

 

Wow! For the second year in a row, Coins For Change has been a huge success, and you guys donated millions of coins! Tomorrow’s Club Penguin Times will have the final results for how  the $1 million  will be split between the charities – the whole team is proud of how generous Club Penguin penguins are. We hope you’re proud, too.

Until then…Waddle on.

Hi everyone! Screenhog here.

There are some questions after Saturday’s blog post about the Treasure Book update. New Club Penguin toys will be available in the next couple of weeks – and those new toys have codes that will access the updated book. But if you have a toy from the first wave of toys (like the Santa, Elf, Rockhopper, Shadow Guy, etc.) your code will get you into the first Treasure Book. Sorry for any confusion!

We hope you’re enjoying the Christmas Party. The team put a lot of effort into decorating the rooms so hopefully you’re finding some fun surprises as you explore.

The new mission will be ready December 29th, and I don’t want to give anything away, but it’s pretty unique because the PSA will be depending on you more than ever. Here’s a sneak peek:

Hello Penguins!

It’s that time again – Club Penguin’s Christmas Party starts tomorrow and goes until Dec. 29th. As you’re getting ready to celebrate, we don’t want you to forget about the igloo decorating contest. There will be 10 Grand Prize (25,000 coins each!) and 10 Runner-Up (10,000 coins each) winners selected during the party. Judges will look for creativity and originality, so use your imagination as you decorate! Winners will be announced in the Jan 1st newspaper.
