- The goal of the event is to build a Castle by gathering the most snow and placing as many parts as possible in the castle building screen.
The main objective of the Santa Scramble event is gathering Snow to build a Castle. The snow is gathered by walking on snowy panels, KOing other players or initiating a Snowball Showdown.
Every 6 turns, players will be sent to the Castle Building screen. In here, players click parts they want to place at the bottom then place them in the frame above. Each part requires 5 Snow on the 1st round, 10 Snow on the 2nd round, 15 Snow on the 3rd round, and 20 Snow on the final round. Placement of parts during the Castle Building session does not consume snow. Players can choose to stop whenever in case they don't want to add any more parts to the castle.
After 24 chapters, the game ends, and the player with the most placed parts indicated by the Mini Castle will be the winner. If there's a tie, the winner will be decided by normal means (Highest level wins, then highest score (stars and wins)).
To initiate a Snowball Showdown, press the "Throw" button, which costs 10 Snow. Any player that is 3 to 4 panels radius away from the attacker can be chosen as the target, while players 1 panel radius near the attacker and players 1 panel radius near the target will become their respective ally. While in battle, the person that chose the Throw option will go first.
When attacking, the player will need to guess to what panel the target will move, while when defending the player will try to avoid the incoming snowball by clicking in an adjacent panel to move. Take note that they can stand still by clicking on the currently standing panel. If the throw misses or there's more than 1 player left alive on one side, the sides will switch and the attacker will become defender and viceversa. Hitting a player with a snowball will give half their Snow to the attacker.
These battles last until all players on one side are hit or 3 rounds of attack and defence have passed. After a battle, players cannot start another snowball fight for 2 Chapters and will have the Chilly effect indicated by a symbol floating around them.
New cards have been added to assist in the Snowball Showdown battles. They're listed as Battle Cards, however they're only usable during the Snowball Showdown game. 2 random cards from each player's decks are replaced by both of these new cards, giving 4 of each of these cards are added per game, giving the deck a total of 48.
All event rewards may only be earned by playing online games in Xmas mode. Unlike most online rewards, the player is not required to play with other human players, but is required to play in a lobby.
This event features a global counter on the main menu of the game. The counter increases as players build castles (by completing online games in Xmas mode); once a certain amount of castles are built, new items are unlocked for all players.
There are numerous tiers of rewards, with each goal being activated at the start of a different day. Goals remain active until completed. It is possible to obtain all unlocked rewards from the global counter for as long as the event is active.

Christmas Wreaths are earned at the end of online games in Xmas mode during this event. The amount of wreaths earned depends on the rank the player finished in: 1st place gives 45, 2nd place gives 38, 3rd place gives 40 and 4th place gives 37. That ending in 3rd place earns a player more wreaths than ending in 2nd is likely due to an error.
Due to the availability of the Christmas Wreaths currency in this event, all items in the Shop which require this currency can once again be purchased.
