Greetings! I'm Isabella, welcome to Mistletown! How was your journey here? You took the Winter Express, right?


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 them to unwrap! Each one costs 10 Stars to unwrap.


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!

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

This year, your Quest Giver Isabella will guide you through the snowy town of Mistletown!


We hope you are prepared to face the cold as the Winter Event is back! During the event you will come across 70 quests. 38 rush quests will be available immediately, and then a new daily quest every single day of the event.

Reindeer Collection

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 only 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.

Please keep in mind that the reindeer collection is an extra part of the Event, as this provides you with extra rewards upon using diamonds. Once you've claimed your Reindeer collection, you'll be given the chance to start a whole new collection and receive a new set of rewards.

Winter Event Calendar

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!
