The event location will require special entry items to be able to play the game there. These are new with each event. Players are given a few to start with but then must acquire more by playing any other location throughout the city, including any games. Higher level locations offer more entry items per play but, also cost more in energy. Players must decide for themselves what is most beneficial.

Playing the event location will provide special tokens to play the event bonus mini-games, stars for opening gifts and secret hidden objects. All of these are new and usable for only the current event. The players receive more of each of these per play as they progress higher in rank for the event location.

Special hidden objects appear at the third visit of the first rank of the event location. The search screen will show an icon for them in the upper left corner and the notification at the bottom of the scene will tell you to search for the appropriate number of Hidden Items and Special Hidden Objects for whatever rank is being played. Each event has a whole new variety of items in the Curiosity Shop where these can be spent.

High rank, previous event locations may occasionally still require the special entry items that were needed during their own event. These "former" entry items may only be available from limited locations which would be listed when you click on them from the location's search screen.

Special rewards will be given or made available from opening gifts, spending secret hidden objects and meeting various event goals.

At the end of an event, the entry items are usually converted to Skeleton Keys unless they are needed to enter the previous location in the next event. If not used, other event items -- Stars, Gifts, Hidden Keys, Event Mini-Game Prizes, etc -- will simply be "lost".

The gift box will only show a maximum of 100 gifts, however players can still accept gifts from friends and they will appear inside the gift box.
