|This page contains information regarding the Purrismas Event 2020.|
Much of the content below is copied verbatim from Castle Cats and is therefore copyrighted by PocApp.
Purrismas 2020 was a full event in Castle Cats that was added in version 2.15. It started on November 23, 2020, and ran through January 9, 2021, with a mid-event update on December 17, 2020.
The Purrismas event introduced six new cats: Yule, Cocoa, Star and Abuela, who could be purchased with real money; and two heroes who could be acquired through Alchemy. It also featured the return of all 21 previous Purrismas cats (including the three "Purrismas is Coming" cats).
The Mew Year's Eve mini-event began on December 31, 2020, and ran concurrently with the remainder of the Purrismas event. It included the premiere of one new microtransaction cat, Echo, and brought back all five previous Mew Year's Eve cats.
New Guild Leader customization options were available in the Event Shop, as were nine returning Hero Outfits. Previous Purrismas and Mew Year's Eve items were available in the prize pool of the Event Box.
The event included a 23-quest storyline featuring the following characters (in order of appearance): Conan, Catniss, Francis, Pipsqueak, Molotov, Curio, Bob, Purrcis, Edward, Nicholas, Sandy Claws, Santa Paws, Alfie and Kai.
A transcript of the Purrismas story is now available.
Rewards for event-specific, normal and battle quests during this time included gingerbread hearts, candy canes and snowballs, event materials that could be used to craft hero eggs and plushies and acquire new guild leader items. Event materials could also be purchased as microtransactions in the Event Shop.
|2000 of each Material||$14.99 USD||+750|
1000 of each Material,
300 Gems and Frosty
|1000 of each Material||$7.99 USD||+400|
|500 of each Material||$4.99 USD||+250|
The quest selection screen included a materials boost button offering the option to watch an ad and get double event materials from quest rewards for 30 minutes. Alternatively, purchasing a new premium hero for real money would double event materials from quest rewards and purchasing two or more microtransaction cats would triple event materials from quest rewards; these boosts lasted for the duration of the event and replaced the ad boost option.
The Event Shop offered five new heroes as real-money purchases, three returning Mew Year's Eve heroes available for gems, and twelve returning Purrismas heroes for gems.
|Santa Paws||300 Gems||-|
|Sandy Claws||300 Gems||-|
|Mrs Paws||300 Gems||-|
|Total, Gems||4400 Gems||-|
Two new Purrismas hero eggs could be crafted in Alchemy, the Stylish Egg and the Furry Mountain Egg, which are both Merge Alchemy eggs. Nine Alchemy cats from previous Purrismas events and two from previous Mew Year's Eve events were also available.

Note: Plushies can only be unlocked in guilds that have reached level 50.
To celebrate Purrismas, wrapped gift boxes were available as quest rewards and could be given, one at a time, to the heroes in the fortress. Event Materials boosts and trait bonuses also applied to these rewards. The maximum number of gift boxes a player could accumulate was 30; once that number was reached, they would no longer appear as quest rewards until some had been given away. (Originally, there was no way to keep track of the number of gifts accumulated or given, but an update later during the event added a slot for the gifts to the inventory window.) Two plushie recipes could be unlocked by giving the required number of gifts.
A third plushie was made available for crafting by completing the Advent Calendar. And a fourth plushie recipe could be unlocked by watching the fireworks that appeared over the guild hall on New Year's Eve, from 11 pm, December 31, 2020, to 1:00 am, January 1, 2021, local time.

The event box was shown in the final tab of the Event Shop window. It could be purchased for 50,000 coins every 2 days or for 60 gems otherwise at any time. Players got a free box at the start of the event as well. For each box purchased, a player received one of the nine prizes shown in the window, chosen at random. The prize pool, which was automatically refreshed every day at midnight, could also be reset by watching an ad, and then for successively higher gem prices starting at 5 gems.
The overall prize pool for the event box included the following:
- Eleven previous Purrismas premium heroes: Santa Paws, Sandy Claws, Nicholas, Alfie, Lisa, Charlie, Mrs Paws, Angela, Boreal, Lumi, Rudolph.
- Seven Purrismas hero outfits.
- More than 60 different guild leader items from the Purrismas events in 2017, 2018, and 2019, and the Mew Year's Eve event in 2018.
- Varying amounts of several different resources, including event materials, gems, embers, and reputation tokens.
Players could earn up to nine event badges by acquiring new event content and completing event quests. Prizes were awarded for obtaining 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 badges. Progress was tracked and prizes could be claimed in the Event Badges window accessed by tapping the gingerbread heart icon in the bottom left of the guild hall screen.
|Recruiter||Purchase New Premium Heroes||1||Yule, Cocoa, Star, Abuela, Echo|
|Alchemist||Craft New Hero Eggs||1||Shaun, Avalanche|
|Artisan||Purchase Guild Leader Items||1||One variation per type of item|
|Lorekeeper||Complete Event Quests||12||Event Quests|
Note: The Recruiter badge requires actual money to be paid, though it makes sense considering the final reward of a 14-day VIP ticket needs a $10 purchase to be useful.
14-Day VIP Ticket
The Advent Calendar was accessed by tapping the calendar icon in the lower left of the guild hall screen. It originally featured a familiar Castle Cats background image divided into 25 panels that could each be opened on a specific day as numbered, from December 1 to December 25. If days were missed, their panels could still be opened for the price of 2 gems each. Players who opened all panels revealed an image of the Purrismas hero Snowball, unlocked his Plushie recipe, and were awarded a Santa Paws outfit for their guild leader.
