Thank you to everyone who logged onto prison on December 6th to celebrate the final day of map 6! All of the prison staff spent the whole day going crazy with abuse. @TheRedVelvetCake had a lot of fun blowing up people’s cells, @cheater flew his pet enderdragon around spawn and all the prison staff gave out lots and lots of free crates and money with blue roulette rolls and emerald rushes!
Most of all, we’d like to thank everyone for the countless hours of grinding that has been put into this map! While map 6 will be missed, map 7 has so much in store!
Welcome to the wizarding world of Harry Potter!
This month, prison map 7 was released with an entirely new inside and outside map (built by the incredible @blocker, @Hi_Im_Mikey and @igotchu) and with entirely new rare items (such as wands that perform some epic spells!!)
Prison Map 7 has been out for just over 2 weeks, and already some exciting features have been added to the game such as NEW LEGENDARIES AND ULTRAS, MYTHICALS and CHRISTMAS CRATES! You can keep updated on all new features, nerfs and buffs with /changelog in game!
To celebrate the holiday season this month, a Christmas Theme Cell Design Contest was hosted and judged by some of the prison staff! Christmas trees were put up in many cells with the hope to win a prize for the best cell! Thank you to everyone who entered, and congratulations to @BLOKBASHER, @DaanB100 and @ingbjomar for winning!

Congratulations to the winners of the fantastic Enchanted Christmas Build Competition! The top three builds were INCREDIBLE and completely blew our judges away.

Second place was taken by dream team Hardah and MissHolliee with their beautiful ‘Christmas Getaway’ Snowglobe build.
Third place went to the expert pairing of xLuuk_ and CJPuff and their incredibly christmassy ‘Epic Note Block Song!’
Thanks so much to everyone who participated in this, was a blast. Keep your eyes peeled for whatever competition we will be announcing next!
