It's Christmas time: Winter events at InnoGames

It's getting festive in the games portfolio of InnoGames, Germany's leading developer and publisher of mobile and online games. The snowy winter events in Forge of Empires and Elvenar have started. Following this, winter will also be coming to Grepolis from December 7. 

This year, the quest giver Isabella in Forge of Empires will lead players through the snowy city of Mistletown. Reindeer, Mystery Presents, a new Grand Prize and a Winter Calendar full of surprises await the players. Once again, they will have the opportunity to unwrap amazing gifts with interesting rewards. Players must shuffle the stack of Mystery Presents and need ten Stars to open one of them. These Stars can be collected by completing quests and special daily quests and events around the city. In addition, players will receive a Match Stick each time they open a Mystery Present. They will need these to get to the Grand Prize. A Match Stick can be used to light Candles in up to three town houses. As soon as all 20 houses are lit, the town's Winter Tree lights up and the Special Grand Prize is won. Players can participate in the winter event in Forge of Empires until January 3, 2021.  

Winter also comes to Elvenar, but a heavy snowstorm covers everything in white. While the inhabitants are at first happy to be able to play outside in the snow, the heavy snowstorm does not let up and takes on dangerous proportions. Finally, a city-wide state of emergency is declared, with urgent recommendations to stay inside and seek shelter. Players must now help delivery owl Olla to bring joy and gifts to the citizens of Elvenar. At the same time, the postal officer Janni needs help with her many quests in this exceptional situation. These give the players Postal Keys, which they have to find all around their own town. These can be used to open Post Boxes, which contain various prizes, including the changing daily prizes. For each open Post Box, delivery owl Olla will take a winter gift and fly it over to the next house, bringing the player one step closer to unlocking the Grand Prize. Once players have completed five event quests, they will be able to collect the first Milestone reward: the Watchful Winter Owl, a pet building that can be developed in ten stages. Players who complete all Winter Magic quests will also be able to obtain a brand-new expiring building: the Goddess of Wishes. The Winter Magic Event in Elvenar runs until January 4, 2021.  

Tyche's Wheel of Fortune comes to Grepolis at this festive time of year. Tyche's Wheel of Fortune is a brand-new event where players can win fantastic prizes. Tyche is also bringing with her the greatest illustrators from all over Greece, who will create a magnificent work of art to enrich the celebrations in the player's city. The Wheel of Fortune has many special powers that need to be uncovered, with the coveted daily special reward being the most valuable. With each turn of the wheel, the painters are inspired and complete another section of the canvas for the Grand Prize. The bar under the canvas shows the current progress and once the painting is finished, players are rewarded with the Grand Prize. Tyche's Wheel of Fortune is available until December 30, 2020.
