Transformation Time! Find All The Looks runs alongside Shroomie Shenanigans! – they both start and end on the same dates. 

What is the premise of the events?

No April Fools event would be complete without an April Fools prank. And Cookie Run’s is no exception.

The Shroomie Shenanigans! event’s premise is that Poison Mushroom Cookie and Liquorice Cookie are wreaking havoc in the kingdom of Cookie Run.

They are using Rainbow Shroomies to turn other Cookies into humans, or other forms. Each Cookie undergoes a unique transformation when it consumes a Rainbow Shroomie. Styles vary. Some emerge as anime figures, others as classical paintings.

Cookie Run: Kingdom has been posting about the April Fools event’s Shroomie Shenanigans! transformations on Twitter – see one such below.
