Your erstwhile guide Diane is back again to guide you on another wildlife tour. This year, she will be leading you on an adventure through a Panda reserve! Here she will introduce you to Guoliang, a monk who has dedicated his life to working with the Pandas! Together they will provide the quests.


How can I participate in the Wildlife Event?

Event Window

To begin the Event, please open the Event Dialogue, and you will see the Wildlife Event Window!

This is where you will begin your adventure, and you will use Entrance Tickets to start playing the Level. The screen will also show your progress toward the Grand Prize, as well as the Daily Special available for that day. Just like in the Archaeology Event, you will also be able to swap it, and this can be done in the Event Window before even beginning a level!

Event Currencies

There are two event currencies in the event: Wildlife Coins and Wildlife Entrance tickets.

Entrance Tickets

Wildlife event ticket.png You will start with 4 Entrance Tickets, and you can gain further by completing Quests and Incidents around your City. In addition, they will also replenish over time (similar to tickets within the Soccer Event).

Of course, if you would like more, you can always purchase more at your leisure by using the Plus Button.


Image2021-5-17 17-50-42.png At the start of the Event, you will have 200 Coins, however you can gain further from logging in once per day, as well as completing quests and incidents around your City! Every 65 coins spent will grant 10 additional moves. Use them wisely, and bring those Chest Pieces and Pawprints home!

Of course, more Coins can also be purchased from the Shop by clicking on the plus button here.

The Pop Mechanic

The goal is to find two (or more) of the same block, and pop them and at the same time seek out matches and pop to create even bigger matches!

Reward Chest

If you pop 5 or more matched blocks, you can create a Reward Chest, and the bigger the match, the bigger the Reward!

Tutourial 2.png

Once a Reward Chest has been created, you will need to claim it. It is not enough to pop and create a Reward Chest, you will also need to pop and drop it! This also applies to Pawprints,which will spawn on your board, and must be dropped to make progress on the Grand Prize bar!

Tutourial 3.png

You drop a Reward chest by moving it to the bottom of the gamefield by removing the blocks below it, either by popping or by using boosters.

Blocks and Stars

There are five different blocks, and each different color type offers a different Reward!

Blue block.jpg Blue chest.png With five or more matches of the Blue Acorn, you will create a blue Chest Piece which will contain a reward with Forge Points
Green block.jpg Green chest.png With five or more matches of the Green Leaf, you will create a Green Chest Piece which will contain a reward with Coins, Supplies, or Boost & Rush Items.
Yellow block.jpg Yellow chest piece.png With five or more matches of the Yellow Flower, you will create a Yellow Chest Piece which will contain a reward with Goods
Orange block.jpg Orange chest piece.png With five or more matches of the Orange Carrot, you will create an Orange Chest Piece which will contain a reward with Medals or Blueprints.
Red block.jpg Red Chest Piece.png With five or more matches of the Red Apple, you will create a Red Chest Piece which will contain a reward with Army Units

In addition, matching more blocks together will also increase the star rating of the Chest Reward. These are rated from 1 to 5 stars, and shown on blocks and Reward Chests (after they are created). Therefore, the bigger the pop, the bigger the Reward!

Pawprints are the currency use to progress on the Grand Prize bar. They are a special block which automatically spawn on the board as you continue to pop up and free up space. In order to collect the pawprints they need to be dropped like the reward chests.

A Grand Prize can be obtained upon collection of 20 Paws.


The number of moves you have per level is finite. Therefore, some strategy is required in terms of when you decide to pop. Do you wait for the biggest possible match before popping a group of blocks (thereby creating a higher quality Reward Chest), or will you go all out in trying to get Pawprints? That is very much up to you!

Wildlife out of moves new.png

However, if you do run out of moves, there are still possibilities. When you are completely out of moves, you will be prompted with a dialogue which will allow you to purchase more moves with the second event currency Coins.


Coins can also be spent on Boosters, which will grant you special abilities. Boosters are tools that will help you in your quests for rewards in the pop-2 window. You will receive a few of each whenever you start a new round.

Hammer booster.png With the Hammer you can remove 1 color block from the board.
Windmill Booster.png With the Windmill you can change 4 adjacent blocks to your chosen color.
Lightning Booster.png With Lightning, you can remove all blocks of a chosen color from the board.


If you are out of options, and there are no possible pops on the board - do not fear! The Board automatically re-shuffles, and gives you the option to once again pop more blocks! As long as you have moves, you will be able to pop, and there will be no dead ends. Deadlock shuffles do not cost you a new entrance ticket.

Wildlife Event Questline

Start Your Adventure! At the beginning of the Event you meet Diane, who is a biologist at the Wildlife Park. As the Main Guest Giver, she and Guoliang, a monk, will give you 30 rush quests and 21 daily quests.

Each completed quest contributes to the counter at the bottom of the quest window,
and you will unlock new prizes at 5, 20, 30, 40 & 51 quests!


Wildlife league 2023.png

Similar to other events like the Forge Bowl Event, you will collect points from popping tiles and move up to higher leagues.

League requirements are based on the scoring of all players in your world. Rewards will be granted at the end of the event.
