How can I participate in the Winter Event?

Participating in the Winter Event is as easy as opening presents!

Open the event overview to see all the prizes available for this round. Pressing the "Start" Button will wrap and shuffle them. Once the presents are shuffled, click on any of the presents to unwrap them! Each present costs 10 Stars to unwrap, which can be gained as a daily login bonus from Ekaterina and the regular Winter questline.

Each opened present will also grant you a match, which can be used to light between one and three candles on the tree. Reach the top to gain the grand prize! To use a match, just press the "Use"-Button.
In addition to the regular gifts, there’s also a chance you might stumble upon a special tile when you open a present. These are:

Shuffle will of course shuffle the board for you, and it will also give you 10 Stars. When combined with "Double Payout", the stars are doubled, but the tiles are only shuffled once.

Double Payout

Double Payout will double the reward from the next present you open. If you do not open any presents during that day, then the double payout will transfer to the next day when you open a present.

Show 2

Show 2 will reveal to you the contents of two presents on the board, and it will also give you a small amount of Stars. When combined with "Double Payout", the stars are doubled, but only two tiles are revealed.

Winter Questline

The Winter Event has returned, but with a twist! In the spirit of Forge of Empires and the idea of exploring wintery stories, a storyteller from the north is visiting your city, telling two tales about Grandfather Frost.


40 rush quests and 31 stacking daily quests are waiting for you to be completed.

Winter Avatars

These avatars can be obtained during the Winter questline.
