To celebrate Hay Day's fifth anniversary, Supercell's organised something rather interesting for one special group of players.

In a time before Clash of Clans or Clash Royale, Hay Day was Supercell's first hit game, and it's still entertaining over 100 million people per day. Nine online friends from who've been chatting and playing together for three+ years were given the opportunity to meet in real life. 

This meet-up was filmed and released on YouTube as 'The Neighborhood Hug', and shines a little positive light on the world of mobile gaming. Coming from various parts of America, South Korea, and Germany, it's nice to see how a simple game has brought together people of all different backgrounds, languages, and circumstances.
