Events consist of a series of time limited quests that reward you with either event currency or a prize once each quest is completed and sometimes both. No quest can be aborted during an event, as there are normally 2 options provided for those that are not able to complete one of them.
Events have offered special buildings for completing the Event. While some will reward you one for completing a number of Quests during the Event, these Events also offer Upgrades to the building for completing more Quests as well as completing the Event.

A Seasonal Event can be linked to a specific time of the year and normally occurs every year. The Halloween and Winter Events have been ever present. Valentine’s Day, Easter and Summer came next and while we have lost Valentine’s Day & Easter, we have gained Carnival & Spring in their place. Mayday was introduced briefly, later that year the Fall Event first appeared. The Summer Event is the only Event that will move between July and August, it appears in July when there is no Soccer Event and in August when there is one. Carnival has since been replaced with a marmite event St Patricks Day.

A Special Event does not fit into either the Historical or Seasonal spheres. The FoE Soccer Cup was introduced to run at the same time as the FIFA World Cup, it returned two years later for the UEFA EUROs, returning for a third time once again for the FIFA World Cup, then again a year later for the Women’s World Cup. Other Events have included Forge of Empires birthday events, and a Memorial Event to remember Anwar Dalati key member of the Forge of Empires team who sadly died.

There have been 21 Historical Events while 24 had been planned. The introduction of the Cultural Settlements, seems to have taken up most of InnoGames time leaving the last three Historical Events unfinished and with no planned release dates.
The Grand Wheel in the Summer Events first appeared in 2014 and has been a constant feature meaning this is now the only Event NOT to have Daily Specials/Prizes.
The Carnival Event tried Daily Reward Chests in 2017, the following year the chest changed every 12 hours, before in its final year in 2019 you had two chests that changed every 6 hours as did the Special Prize in them (only time we could not keep up with the list of Special Rewards).
Daily Prizes were first introduced in the 2014 Winter Event, they did not return until the 2015 Winter Event. In 2016 we saw it tried in the last Easter Event and the first Fall Event.
The new Event of 2017 Spring Event also had Daily Prizes as did the new Event of 2018 Forge Bowl Event, the next to introduce Daily Prizes was the 2018 FoE Soccer Cup Event.
In 2019 the Archaeology Event was introduced with Daily Specials, before finally being added to the 2019 Halloween Event, the only difference being that the Daily Prizes do not change at midnight on the local server, instead they stay for a complete 24 hours, this is due to these two events occurring during the time of year that most countries change their time by 1 hour so as to ensure maximum daylight during what was considered normal working hours.
The following table lists all the events that have occurred as of date in the game, categorized by year and type.
- Originally only football played by men was used, however since 2019 all major international tournaments are used.
- People either hate it or love it.
