Forge Bowl 2021

Lady M.


Collect footballs from quests and incidents. Spend them to advance through the football field. Get Daily and Touchdown Rewards in the process!

Our famous quarterback Cal Rogers makes his return with InnoForgers team to participate in this year's Forge Bowl! The Forge Bowl starts on January 14th and will run until February 3rd.

As soon as Forge Bowl has started, you can access the event window on top left corner to score touchdowns for your team! Listen to Cal Rogers to make progress in this year’s questline. You’ll be able to complete 35 rush quests immediately, and receive another 20 quests on a daily basis.


Your goal is to reach the end zone and score a touchdown, giving you the opportunity to win the coveted Touchdown Reward. Move your team forward 80 yards in order to score a touchdown, pushing your opponents down field towards your prize. Just like last year, you can use one of the five available coaches, who'll grant different advantages based on your needs, so use them wisely!


To start the game, select one player from the field to advance towards the end zone. Each player gives you a different reward for choosing him, and each play requires Footballs, which you earn via quests. You can also get additional Footballs by logging in every day, as well as collecting some more from incidents.

For every yard you move forward, your rank in the League will progress. With higher ranking come better rewards! At the end of the event, you will receive additional special rewards based on your ranking. Aim for a higher rank to gain access to some awesome extra rewards!


Just like last year, you will have the assistance of five well-prepared coaches. You can change your current coach by clicking his portrait in the the top left corner. There, you'll be able to select a coach who suits your current tactics best. There are four volunteer coaches, and each of them provides different advantages as you make progress to a touchdown. There's also the professional Ultimate Coach, who provides all these advantages combined . The Default Coach is your initial coach, and he will stay with you for however long you wish. If you prefer to choose another coach, they will work for you for up to 24 hours (but you can dismiss them earlier), after which they will take a 24 hour break during which they cannot be rehired. If you really want to though, they will rejoin you earlier for a small fee. This cooldown does not apply to the Default Coach and the Ultimate Coach.

With Forge Bowl 2021 we're also introducing some new exciting buildings! The Grand Prize is the Terracotta Vineyard. You can get the level 1 building from the questline, an you can upgrade it all the way to the level 8. To do so, you need Terracotta Vineyard Upgrade Kits. You can get them from the questline itself, as well as from the Touchdown Rewards. The level 1 building will provide happiness, population and coins. From level 2 on it also generates medals. Level 4 adds goods and Forge Points to the mix. From level 5 on, the building will also provide a supply boost. The output increases further with upgrades.


Grand Prize: The Terracotta Vineyard is an upgradable 5x3 residential building with 8 levels

Additionally, you will also have a chance to get four new 5x2 decorations, of which each exists in two different variations:


They not only look great, but if you place them in front of the Terracotta Vineyard, they will also provide an additional bonus for the main building:
  • Cypress Pass - 8% attack for the attacking army​
  • Grapevines - 10 goods.​
  • Lavender Lawn - 4 Forge Points.​
  • Olive Grove - 8% defense for the attacking army​
You can place as many of them as you like, as long as you have enough space in the city.


That's not all! If you didn't have a chance to participate in our previous events, now you have an opportunity to claim some of those awesome past event items: The Colossus, Olympic Treasury, Sentinel Outpost and others!

Lastly, as always, you'll get to show off your progress to your friends and neighbors, by obtaining these three new themed portraits:
The first two avatars are available as quest rewards, and the last one is a league reward.

As you progress through the event, you will also come across an Event Surprise Box!

The Surprise Box will only reveal itself with our next event, so stash it in your inventory and keep an eye on it!


We hope you enjoy this year's event :]. We're looking forward to hearing your feedback :).
If you come across any text errors, please kindly report them in this separate thread.

Thank you for playing Forge of Empires!
