Description[edit]

Twelve Days of StarCraft was released on December 23rd, 1999, as Blizzard's Map of the Week.[1] It's an UMS map.

The map was released in two versions, one with and one without the song "Twelve Days of StarCraft" playing. The map works in the same way independent of which version one uses.

On December 14th, 2013, CarbotAnimations released a video with the lyrics of the song.[2]

The the SCV to the middle of the map, grab the flag and return back to your beacon to score a point!

The toys start out kinda small, but you get bigger toys the closer you get to the twelfth day!"

Good luck and Merry Christmas everybody!
