I'm Isabella, welcome to Mistletown! How was your journey here?
You took the Winter Express, right?
Dear Kings & Queens,
We hope you are prepared to face the cold as the Winter Event is back! This year, your Quest Giver Isabella will guide you through the snowy town of Mistletown! There are Reindeers, Mystery Presents, a new Grand Prize, and a Winter Calendar full of surprises waiting for you!
The Winter Event will run from December 3rd, 2020 to January 3rd, 2021.
Similar to last year's Winter Event, you will get the chance to unwrap amazing presents containing some pretty interesting rewards. Shuffle the stack of Mystery Presents and use 10 Stars to open one of them. Those Stars can be collected by completing the event questline, as well as special daily quests and in incidents hidden around your city. In addition, each time you open a Mystery Present, you will receive a Match Stick, which can be used to gain progress toward the Grand Prize! Use a Match Stick to light Candles inside 1, 2, or 3 town houses. Once all 20 houses are lit, the town's Winter Tree will light up and you'll obtain the Special Grand Prize!
There are also three special tiles hidden amongst the presents:
|Show Two, which reveals the rewards hidden inside two unopened presents.|
|Times Two, which doubles the contents of the next present that you open.|
|Shuffle, which exchanges all of presents with a whole new set of wrapped up rewards!|
That's not all! Each day a new Daily Special will be hidden among the Mystery Presents! When revealing a Daily Special, you will also find one of the 9 lost Reindeers! Once you have found your first Reindeer, it will reveal a hidden reward offer which can be claimed using diamonds! Help return all the reindeer to their sleigh. Collect 9 Reindeers to unlock more rewards and get yourself a better deal.
"Is that it?" you are going to ask... Well no, there is more! We indeed have another surprise for you! This year, we are introducing to you the wonderful Winter Calendar! 32 doors for you to open, with a reward behind each one of them! And that's not all! If you open all the Winter Calendar doors, you will gain a special reward!
To open these doors, you will need keys! You can find one key each day when unwrapping presents! New doors will unlock each day of the Winter Event, so make sure to come back every day to find the keys! In case you find a second key in the same day, it will be replaced by 1 Lock Pick and 10 stars.
You will need 10 Lock Picks to replace a Key and open a door you might have missed. Opening mystery presents is not the only way to win Lock Picks, as you can also receive two additional Lock Picks by completing a Daily Challenge.
Wait, can you smell this? This must be coming from the Winter Bakery, this year’s Grand Prize! This special 3x5 building can be upgraded to level 5. Once level 5 is reached, you will be able to choose among 4 different looks, with each one providing a particular advantage to your city. Also, when placed next to each other, these Bakeries will increase their output even further!
So, which ones are you going to go for? The Lussebullar Bakery, the Marzipan Bakery, the Macaron Bakery, or the Gingerbread Bakery? Choose them wisely!

Last but not least, we have one more thing in our stack for you! As for every event, you will be able to get two new Avatars as a questline reward! Our third Avatar, Bianca, is a unique Avatar Reward that can only be obtained through the Reward Calendar.
We hope you enjoy this year’s Winter Event! As always, your feedback is very important to us, so let us know what you think!
