Event Period

December 1st - December 31st 2013


There are 24 presents on the tree. Each day you can open a new present. After clicking on a day, the Tyches Wheel of Fortune appears on the right side of the window. Each wheel contains six different rewards and one shard. Collect five shards in order to get all five advisors for one week for free.
You spin the wheel by pressing the button in the middle, you can click it again to stop it from spinning or let it spin until it stops by itself. A reward will pop up in the middle after a short animation. The first spin on the current day is always free, you can do more spins by spending gold. It's totally random which reward you will get. You need to collect the reward before you can spin the same wheel again.
After the first spin of a wheel, a decoration on the christmas tree will be unlocked. Unlocking decorations will grant you the award "Tyches favourite".

How to open the Calendar

Click on the small event icon at the bottom right corner of the screen to open the calendar.

How to open a day

As soon as you move your mouse over the illustrated scene, pins will popup all over the christmas tree, each pin contains a number (1 to 24). If you click on a pin, the wheel of fortune for that day will open up on the right side next to the tree. In order to open a day, it is required that the appropriate day has been reached.

Current Day

The pin of the current day is highlighted in gold.

Past Days

Pins of past days that still contain at least one reward are displayed in blue.

Store rewards

You don't need to accept the reward instantly. You can "store" it at the wheel until the event ends.

As soon as you make your first spin of the day, a new (and day-specific) decoration will be added to the christmas tree.

How to collect a reward

Initially, there is just one "spin" button in the middle of the wheel if you have a free spin.
Pressing this button will make a highlight graphic spin over all available rewards (not the ones which were already taken). The "spin" button will change into a "Stop" button during the animation. Pressing this button will stop the rotation earlier.
As the animation stops, the button in the middle will fade away and the chosen reward moves to the middle.
You can click the reward to either store it in the inventory, use it directly for the selected town, or throw it away. You can also leave it there for the duration of the event and pick it up later.
If you have taken the reward, the "spin" button will appear again, but this time as a "Premium spin" button. Taking the sixth reward will not display the animation. It will simply make the last (sixth) reward move to the middle instantly.
If you have collected all six rewards of a day, further spins are not possible anymore.


In the calendar screen, there is also the "shard display", showing the progress until you unlock the free advisors.

Shard collection

One reward of each day will also come along with a "shard". If you receive that reward, you will also receive the shard in the calendar screen, which will eventually unlock all five premium advisors for 7 days (for free).
As soon as you have received the advisors, shards will not be displayed in any wheel any longer. Also, the advisors will move from grey to coloured once unlocked.

Costs of Additional Spins

The first spin at the current day is always for free. Additional spins cost premium. If you missed the spin on a previous day, the first spin on that wheel will cost 50 gold as well.

List of New Rewards

With the christmas event, we implemented a few new rewards into the game. These are common effects we already offered you during the halloween event, but in Tyches Wheel of Fortune these rewards have extra long durations. Rewards have different levels, indicated by a small roman numeral above the reward image. Each level increases the duration of the effect by one week.

Reward Effect Duration
Recruitment Boost Increases recruitment speed of the target town by 20% (ships and land units). 1 week * level
Defence Boost Increases the defence power of the target town by 5%. 1 week * level
Attack Boost Increases the attack power of the target town by 10%. 1 week * level
Wood Boost Increases the wood production of the target town by 20%. 1 week * level
Stone Boost Increases the stone production of the target town by 20%. 1 week * level
Silver Boost Increases the silver production of the target town by 20%. 1 week * level
Festival Boost Reduces the costs for the city festival of the target town by 20%. 1 week * level


The Christmas event is only available for a limited time, between December 1st and December 31st, 2013. The remaining time is always visible, displayed as a countdown at the top left corner of the event window counting down days, hours, minutes and seconds. After the time is up, it won't be possible to open the window any more. Keep in mind that you have to collect all remaining rewards that you might have stored in some wheels before the time is up. There is no way to collect these rewards afterwards.

Mobile App

It's the first time that an event will also be available in our mobile apps. Try it out because you will be able to spin the wheel just with your finger.
