Forge of Empires changes things up this year with their first major event to run on mobile as well as browser. The holiday experience will run from December 1 to January 5 and will feature two new buildings and a new currency. Players can acquire stars, the medium of exchange, through unique quests and trade them for special rewards. To commemorate Christmas, a unique building will be given out on December 24.
On their end, Grepolis and The West both center their events on the advent calendar which consists of 24 days. Tyche’s Calendar from Grepolis lets players win special rewards through a new Wheel of Fortune each day. Similar to last year’s event, the first daily spin will be free. Unlike last year, players will get new rewards and options, including the chance to refill a wheel and get one of four new rituals. The event is playable in both the browser version and mobile. In addition, Grepolis will run a Facebook giveaway parallel to the event. The West on their end will allow players to open the doors on their advent calendar and receive a nice item every day.
