Welcome to the first edition of Throwback Thursday, a new blog post that will be posted every two weeks on you guessed it, Thursday! These posts will be highlighting some of the great moments that have happened on Club Penguin Rewritten in the past for older players to reminisce and for new players to learn more about.
The first throwback that we will be looking at was Club Penguin Rewritten’s first ever party – The Beta Test Party. Rather fitting I would say, eh?
The Open Beta Test Party, which was also on the first day ever on the Club Penguin Rewritten island, started and finished later the same day on February 12th, 2017, over three years ago now. Time sure does fly! The purpose of this party was to test out further what was already tested during closed beta, while also celebrating the first day ever on the island.
To commemorate and thank all the penguins that came along to help test and celebrate, those present could obtain the “Beta Hat” by picking it up at the Town. This very special hat was only picked up by 438 penguins and was also available for one day only, which as you know now was also the first day ever! So, if you see anyone around the island with this hat on, you’ll know they’ve been waddling around the island since day one. Let us know if you have ever spotted a penguin wearing it! Here’s what the hat looks like:
Since then, a LOT more penguins have made Club Penguin Rewritten their home, and we couldn’t be happier to have you all with us along this fun journey.
So that’s it! That’s the end of the first edition of Throwback Thursday, I hope you enjoyed and learned more about our island, and I cannot wait to share more throwbacks with you all. Make sure to also let me know what YOUR first memory on the island was, I’d love to hear all your answers.
Until then… Waddle on!
