Play Wild Packs FAQ’s

Have you ever wanted to create your own secret group in Animal Jam? A group that only you and your friends can join, with a secret hideout and a secret chat channel? If so, I have some very good news for you! Animal Jam: Play Wild now has a feature called Packs.

You and your friends can create your very own Pack, and every Pack needs an Alpha. You must first swear allegiance to one of the six Alpha animals of Animal Jam. After doing so, you will be able to create your own Pack badges, earn experience through events and level up your animal.

When it’s time to chill, you and your friends can return to the Pack’s hideout, check out the Loot Chest there, which gives you daily prizes. Play Wild Packs basically are groups of friends that can now play Animal Jam: Play Wild together, which is more fun!
