As part of our on-going winter celebrations, this weekend will be another Winter Weekend!

This weekend’s promotion is all about the Minigames, each of the following games will give out double the rewards  when played over the weekend:

  • Castle Wars - Awards double the usual points at the end of a game.
  • Soul Wars - Awards double the usual zeal at the end of a game
  • Trawler - Awards double the usual numbers of fish, and thus double the XP that would normally be gained for catching these fish.
  • Pest Control - Awards double the usual points at the end of a game.
  • Big Chinchompa - Awards double the usual Competence Points.
  • Evil Tree - Awards double the usual item rewards.
  • Shooting Star - Awards double the usual item rewards.
So whether you’re a RuneScape veteran looking to take advantage of the double rewards, or someone fresh to RuneScape looking for something new to get your teeth into, this weekend is a perfectly opportunity to try something a little different!

This weekend of minigame madness runs from Saturday 8th December 00:00 GMT until Sunday 9th December 23:59 GMT

If you’re after more festive fun, don’t forget that anyone who's a member during December will get the Festive Aura, which grants a +50% XP boost for 30 minutes a day! 

Visit today to take part and grab your Festive Aura today!
