February 26, 2013 - Leading online game developer and publisher, Joymax today surprises players with a returning event in their ultra popular MMORPG, Silkroad Online.  In a surprise twist, Joymax has unveiled not just one but two events for March!   Players are already turning cartwheels and joining in on this returning event at the Joymax portal

A Magic Pop Card is an item that will, when used, give players random but valuable items equal to the investment put into it.  From now until March 19 th (a three week event), all Magic Pop Cards are buy one get one free – and the sky is the limit on this sale, as there’s no limit to the number of Magic Pop Cards a player can purchase through the end of March.  This is especially lucrative as Magic Pop Cards are a mere 10 Silk to purchase!

Once players have their Pop Cards, they will need to visit Gachapong NPC of the Card machine.  Put the Magic Pop Cards into the empty slots and press the Start button.  A successful roll will reward players with the most lucrative prizes, and every pull is a winner.  Prizes include rare weapons as well as multiple valuable cash shop items.

This is in addition to the Carnival which is now in town!  From now until March 19 th, prizes that players can win from creating and blowing balloons include Berserker Regeneration Potions, Level 11, 12, and 13 Magic Stones, Flowers, Circus Bear Summon Scroll, Pandora’s Box, Option Level Enhancement Scroll, Monster Summon Scroll, Reverse Return Scroll and plenty of other prizes.

When the Magic Pop Card event was held last year, it quickly became one of the most popular events through the long Silkroad history.  Let your voice be heard about the events you love most on the Joymax Facebook at!
