How To Meet Snowboy
Appears When Snow Piles Up
You can meet Snowboy by combining two large snowballs together on a snowy day. Note that snowballs won't appear if your island is not covered in snow!
Months Snowboy Appears
*The weather changes randomly

Roll The Snowball To Make It Larger
In order to encounter Snowboy, you'll need to roll a snowball on top of the snow to make it larger.
Snowball Breaks When It Hits A Tree
Carefully roll the snowball so that it won't hit a tree. If the snowball hits a tree or falls in the water, you'll have to find new snowball and roll again. In order to make new snowballs spawn, enter and exit a building.
Combine Two Snowballs
Roll 2 snowballs to a large size and combine them together to make Snowboy. In order to get rewards from Snowboy, you need to make two snowballs the perfect size. Read the section below on how to make the perfect Snowboy.
Snowboy Will Melt In Few Days
Sadly, Snowboy will melt in about 3 days. If you made perfect Snowboy, he will give you new Large Snowflake everyday until he melts away.
How To Make Perfect Snowboy
Make 2 Snowballs' Size Perfect
In order to make a perfect Snowboy and get a reward from him, you'll need to make the two snowballs' sizes just right. The head should always be slightly smaller and the body should be maximum size. Refer the size of the snowballs above.
How Do You Know If The Snowball Is Max Size
When you successfully make the snowball at the maximum size, your character will slow down when you start to push the snowball!
Crush Snowball To Start Over
If you overdo the rolling and make the snowball too big, crush it and make a new one spawn.
Reset The Software Before Saving
If you accidentally make imperfect Snowboy and don't want to wait till next day for new snowball to respawn, reset the game without saving.
You Can Make More Than 2 Snowboys
If you made an imperfect Snowboy by accident, you can try again on the next day and make another snowboy. Note that more than 2 Snowboys can exist in your island.
