  • "Winter Invasion" is very similar to “Colony Invasion” in terms of map setup and mission goals.
  • Collecting Candy provides the collecting player with one of four possible Buffs (stackable).
  • There is an unmentioned additional optional Objective: Defeat the Yeti. The defeated Yeti will drop collectable Buffs, while the players will automatically earn additional Winter Commodities.
  • The [Mysterious Box of Cookies and Treats] will either contain more Winter Commodities, or occasionally either one [Frigid Lump of Coal], or one of six Rare non-combat Gingerbread pets.
  • This is the only possible map to obtain a Recipe for Neelix, required to produce one of sixteen Winter Consumables (Food & Drink items). The Recipe is not obtained automatically as mission reward, and needs to be collected by the player during each run from one of five possible locations on the map.
