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 2nd, 2021 to January 2nd, 2022.
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.
There is more! The well known Winter Calendar will return, with 32 doors for you to open, with a reward behind each one of them! If you open all the Winter Calendar doors, you will gain some very special rewards. For example, a special avatar and a new decoration for the Winter Train building: The Parlor Car!
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 Master Key Piece and 10 stars. Upon collecting five Key Parts, you will create a Master Key, that can be used to unlock previously missed doors.
Please note: If you get double reward before finding the Daily Key, you will get a Daily Key and a Master Key Part!
Opening mystery presents is not the only way to win Key Parts, as you can also receive additional parts by completing a Daily Challenge or purchasing with diamonds.
As with all events, there is a brand new Grand Prize to be won! This year, you'll have the chance to snatch the charming and brand new Winter Canal. Upon reaching the maximum level, this 10 levels' branching building will offer two options: the Festive Canal and the Jolie Canal! Both of these buildings will offer Happiness, Population, Coins, Supplies, Medals and Forge Points. Apart from the nice visuals, the main difference between them is the battle boosts: the Festive Canal increases your defense for both attacking and defending army, while the Jolie Canal increases the attack for both as well!
So, which ones are you going to go for? Festive or Jolie? Choose wisely!
In addition, successfully completing quests within the event will reward you with you the 'Festive Grotto', that provides a coin production boost!
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, the Winter Waiter, is an unique Avatar Reward that can only be obtained through the Reward Calendar.
