Summer Event 2022
How does the Summer Event work?
Ahoy me hearties! Forge Island’s governor is preparing to welcome you back to the festival once more. Listen to his tall tales and finish his quests, and he’ll reward you with access to the infamous Wheel of Fortune, along with some shiny gold doubloons.
Jane and her pet parrot will also return to lead you on some crazy adventures. Finish her quests to find buried treasure and be rewarded with doubloons to spend on the Wheel!
There are awesome prizes to be won on the wheel, and if you didn't have a chance to participate in our previous events, now you have an opportunity to compete with your neighbors to claim some of those old event items, as well as brand new Summer items. To board the Wheel of Fortune, click the bar in the top left corner of your screen:
Upon opening the event window, you will see the wheel, as well as the buttons to "spin" or "refresh & spin". Click "spin" to try your hand at the prizes currently on the wheel, or "refresh & spin" to clear the wheel for a new set of prizes! Don't worry, if you refresh the wheel, you still earn a prize after the new wheel is revealed. Remember that your neighborhood shares the wheel - when you refresh it, it's refreshed for everyone (an additional refresh will take place during a neighborhood merge). This also means when you grab a prize, it is gone for everyone! The most recent wins are displayed at the bottom of the window, so that you can keep an eye on who's winning which prize.
In order to spin the wheel, you first need to earn Doubloons which can be earned by completing Summer quests or finding them in regular incidents around, or in the outskirts of your city as well as a daily log-in bonus. You can also use Diamonds if you just can't resist waiting for the next spin! One spin costs one Doubloon, and results in one prize. Alternatively, you can "refresh and spin" to call up a whole new set of prizes for your neighborhood. No matter what you choose, you will always win a prize!
What can I win on the Wheel?
The prizes displayed in the wheel are available for every player in your neighborhood to claim. The prizes are random but, don't worry, every wheel has something special that can be won.
There are different rewards within the Wheel of Fortune. Common rewards (green) can be obtained up to four times, and uncommon (silver) can be won twice (the amount remaining is indicated by the bars in the circle surrounding it). Once the bars are depleted, that prize can no longer be won, and to find it again, you may need to refresh the wheel.
With the last type of prizes, they are the rare prizes, which are surrounded by a golden circle, and can only be won once! Among these special prizes are the event buildings from the previous events, including the Governor's Villa, and the Crow's Nest!
Of course, if you run out of all prizes, then the Wheel of Fortune will automatically refresh!
How do I win the Grand Prize?
In order to snag yourself the grand prize, you must set sail on a fantastic voyage! But how do you navigate the perilous seas, you ask? After every spin of the wheel, you will receive a compass! Use this compass to make your way across the map. Using a compass will randomly move your ship 1-3 spots on the map. Once you reach the edge of the map, X marks the spot, and you will be presented with the grand prize reward! The map will then be reset and you will be able to start once more on an epic new voyage.
Summer Event Questline
To spin the wheel you need Doubloons, which both the Governor, as well as the local pirate Jane will be happy to provide you with... in exchange for completing tasks, of course.
You can go through the first 34 quests immediately. Once you've completed them, you will receive one additional quest per day, for the remainder of the event (21 daily quests). You will probably have a few of them stacked when you get to them, as they start stacking up on day one. Each completed quest contributes to the counter at the bottom of the quest window, and you will unlock new prizes at 5, 20, 34, 45 & 55 quests!
Summer Event Rewards
In addition to some older event items, we of course also have a brand new reward: Privateer's Boathouse (an upgradable building with 11 levels) as well as some special new summer avatars.
This year’s Grand Prize is the Privateer's Boathouse!
Every worthy pirate needs a boathouse to match their stature and to stash their plunder! This year’s building has 11 levels, with two unique final level iterations to choose from (bonus stats vary by age):
|A Level 1 Privateer's Boathouse can be found as one of the first rewards of the questline and can then be upgraded using Privateer's Boathouse Upgrade Kit which can be obtained in the Summer 2022 Event quest line and as part of the Grand Prize.|
Privateer's Boathouse - Lv. 10
Summer Bonus Rewards
As with previous events, you can also use diamonds to unlock the bonus prizes alongside the Grand Prizes!
Introducing a brand-new type of building which will be available as a bonus prize. Introducing the Limited Buildings! These buildings will provide special bonuses, but only for a limited time. Once the time allocated for the bonus runs out, the building will function as a decoration and provide Happiness. The first of these are the Forge Fountain:
Forge Fountain - Active
Forge Fountain - Inactive
|* This building will decay after 5d to Forge Fountain - Inactive
To accrue prizes in the piggy bank, you need only win a prize with a piggy bank next to it. This will automatically fill one slot in the piggy bank with a random prize from the selection pool. Use diamonds to unlock the piggy bank and gain whatever rewards you have accrued. Collecting the piggy bank will empty it so you can start accruing prizes again.
Last but not least, you will be able to get the following avatars within the event!
Sally Seadog (Questline Reward)
Barnacle Bill (Questline Reward)
Cap'n Dreadful(Bonus Prize)
