Introduction

Forumann frames winter2020.png

Winter arrives in your city, with a heavy blizzard rapidly covering everything in white. While your citizens, at first, are happy to be out and playing in the snow, the mean blizzard does not let up, pouring down more and more snow, making the day to day life of the citizens quite dangerous. Ultimately, a city-wide state of emergency is declared, with urgent recommendations to stay inside and stay safe.

Doing your rounds, you notice an owl flying from home to home, carrying a bag of gifts marked with the sigil of the post office. You promptly go there, and it is where you meet Janni, the postal officer. She explains to you that many gifts were brought to be dispatched just before the blizzard set in. And now wants to not only deliver those, but also wants to make sure to keep the people's spirits up in these troublesome times. Without a second thought, you join her in her quest to spread the joys of winter.

Quests & Quest Milestones

The quest line consists of a story section and additional episodic quests, which start as soon as the story is completed. This means that you will be able to finish the first series of quests right away, while later quests have new additions released on a daily basis, allowing you to continue to play one additional event quest on each new event day.

Solving event quests also comes with additional benefits, as each completed quest brings you closer to reaching one of the Milestones which give you additional rewards simply for reaching them.

Event Menu

Each completed quest will give you Postal Keys Postal Keys.png as reward. They are automatically added to the Event Menu. With the Postal Keys you can open Postal Boxes to win precious and unique Event Buildings and other items. Opening the Postal Boxes will also grant you Winter Gifts Winter Gifts.png to progress towards the Grand Prizes, but that's not all! In this year's Winter Magic Event, when opening a Postal Box, a Postal Star is added to the Special Powers counter, once you have gathered the required amount you can then use it activate Special Powers to further turn the odds in your favor!

By clicking the Event Menu icon you will access the Event Window which will give you plenty of information and allow you to put the Postal Keys you gathered to use:

Postal Keys

WMagic2020 tab2.png

You start the Winter Magic event with 100 Postal Keys Postal Keys.png and each Event Quest will give you more as a reward for completing the given tasks. Every day you play during the Event, you will receive a Daily Winter Magic login reward of 25 Postal Keys Postal Keys.png.

Also, from time to time, you will find more Postal Keys around your city outskirts for you to collect.

You can then use the Postal Keys to open Postal Boxes. Additional Postal Keys are unlocked upon reaching the third Quest Milestone.

Remember that the Winter Magic event only lasts for a few weeks, and after that you will no longer be able to use your Postal Keys to open Postal Boxes and earn awesome rewards, so don't waste time!

Postal Boxes

Each day in the Winter Magic event starts with a total of 16 locked Postal Boxes that are just waiting for you to open them, using Postal Keys. At the start of each day, you will be presented with a new selection of rewards hidden within the Postal Boxes. To give you an idea of what you can win, the rewards are visible at first but you must "Shuffle" them before you open the doors to claim them.

You can activate a manual "Shuffle" at any point in time, given you have the required 45 Postal Keys.

Use your Postal Keys to open a Postal Boxes. Each one will give you a Winter Gift plus one of many different rewards like the changing Daily Exclusives, Instants, Knowledge Points, Rune Shards, special Buildings or more Postal Keys.


Hint:If you have already found the prizes you were looking for, using the Shuffle button to get a new set of closed doors might be a good strategy.

Special Powers

WMagic2020 tab4.png

Each time you open a Postal Box, 1 Postal Star is added to the Special Powers counter. Once you have gathered the required amount you can then use the respective Power to further increase your odds!

There are 3 Special Powers you can use:
Wintermagic2020 special1.png Reshuffle - At the cost of 45 Postal Keys it presents you with new rewards, closes all previously opened Postal Boxes and allows you to "shuffle" them again.
Wintermagic2020 special2.png 2x - Doubles up the rewards in the next Postal Box that is opened after activation.
Wintermagic2020 reveal.png Magnifier - Shows the contents of two, as yet unopened, Postal Boxes.
Please Note:You cannot continue to collect additional Postal Stars if a Special Power is ready to use. Only after a Power has been used will the counter start increasing again with each new door opened.

Winter Gifts

WMagic2020 tab3.png

Each time you open a Postal Box, you will be rewarded with a Winter Gift. If you have used the "2x" Special Power previously, you will even receive two Winter Gifts.

Every Postal Box you open also contains a Winter Gift that Olla, the delivery owl, will deliver to your citizens. Once Olla delivered a total of 20 Winter Gifts, the next Grand Prize is unlocked for you.

Pet Food is a special Enchantment designed specifically to feed your Watchful Winter owl and other Pet Evolving Buildings. Applied directly to the building from your Enchantments tab, it activates a Pet Food Boost.
