Screenshot of the Week!

The 9/9 Chicken Raid spearheaded by player Squirle saw dozens of Evernight players turning into chickens at Sandson's Farm, to then attack unsuspecting gnats and toads. A group of them posed for a picture by player Skartakh at the Party Tree, before swimming along the Brandywine River and meeting their fate at the giants in the Brandy Hills. Thanks, Squirle, for sending in this week's screenshot! Also, click here for a great YouTube video of the event.
