Bring 'Em Back Has Arrived!
What is Bring ‘Em Back?

Can I breed the returning dragons?
Yes, all dragons available for purchase in the Market can also be bred.
When does Bring ‘Em Back end?
Good news! We've counted your votes on Facebook and the results are in! Bring 'em Back has been extended one more week and will now run through January 24th.
Getting Started With The Frosty Jubilee
Why hasn’t the event begun in my park yet?
Your park level must be at least level 11 to begin this event, which began on December 15th, 2016.
If you’re above level 11 and still aren't seeing the event, you might be playing on an older version of DragonVale, please update to the most recent version through the iOS App Store, Google Play Store, or Amazon Marketplace. (The correct version for the event is 3.11.0)
I missed the help menus/event tutorials, what should I do?
If you select the Arctic Market, then tap Help, you can view all the information on the event.
When does the event end?
The Frosty Jubilee runs through January 10th.
This event is all about collecting Iceberries around your park, playing games, competing in challenges, and turning in the Iceberries for fabulous prizes at the Arctic Market. How can I earn Iceberries, you ask?
- Collecting DragonCash or Harvesting Treats
- Hatching Dragons
- Clearing bushes and trees from new islands
- Playing games
- Competing in challenges
- Collecting daily rewards from the Chilly Chronograph
- Competing in Colosseum events
- Questing at the Perch of Kairos and Gaia's Nest
- Receiving gifts from friends
- Visiting friends' parks and tapping Party Hats
- Finding and tapping on the wizard Lumi
- Later in the event you might even be visited by a jolly, present-toting Wizard!
Iceberries can also be purchased through the Market. For the first time ever we are also offering a Gem and Iceberry bundle! Please note that Iceberries purchased in the Market do not count against your daily collection limit.
Why am I no longer earning Iceberries?
You’ve hit your daily cap for Iceberries. Nice work! More Iceberries will be available to collect the following day.
What is the daily cap of Iceberries?
Iceberries are normally limited to 1000 per day, but be on the lookout for special occasions where there are more Iceberries available! Keep in mind that purchases in the Market do not count against the daily limit.
Why is there a daily collection limit on Iceberries during The Frosty Jubilee?
A spell is cast to create Iceberries every day at the same time, but the magic only allows for a finite amount!
What time do the Iceberries reset each day?
Your daily cap for Iceberries will reset each day at 11am MST. Check back each day for more Iceberries and more chances to earn prizes!
Will there be opportunities to earn bonus Iceberries?
At random times throughout the Frosty Jubilee players can earn more Iceberries than normal. Stay tuned to our Facebook community to learn more!
The Arctic Market
The Arctic Market can be found on the event island and contains all the prizes that can be earned in the event. Prizes are divided into 3 collections: Wintry, Glimmer, and Bauble. Collecting more unique prizes will unlock higher tiers.
Exchanging Iceberries for Prizes
- Visit the Arctic Market and tap the Prizes icon
- View available prizes by tapping each of the different tiers
- Select a prize from one of the many items available
- The more unique prizes you earn, the more collections you will unlock
Please Note: If you already own an item from one of the prize collections it will count towards unlocking higher tiers. Multiples of the same item will not be counted in your total.
Activities & Games
The Arctic Arcade contains three different mini games - two favorites from previous events, and one all-new game: Iceberry Rush!
Iceberry Rush - Test your reflexes with this all-new mini game! You'll have 10 seconds to tap as many Iceberries and ornaments as you can. Watch out for bombs or else it's game over!
Wheel of Chance - Give the wheel a spin and be rewarded with the number of Iceberries (or Gems!) the needle lands on.
Make-a-Match - You will be presented with a gameboard of cards placed face-down. Test your memory to match two cards and earn Iceberries!
Why can't I play any more games today / When can I play games again?
These games can be played up to 10 times daily. You can visit the Arcade to check the time until games can be played again!
The Snowy Stadium
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Iceberries!
- Challenges will last two hours each
- You may complete up to five challenges per day
- Choose the best dragons for the challenge by matching your dragon's elements to the elements of the current challenge
- If you win Gold in the challenge, you can send your friend a thank you and they will receive 15 extra Iceberries
- Iceberries collected from the Snowy Stadium after your daily limit has been reached will be placed into your gifts menu after you reload DragonVale
What happens to my winnings from games and challenges if I’ve already hit my limit of Iceberries for the day?
Once you hit your daily collection limit any winnings from games played thereafter, or from unfinished challenges, will be added to your gifts menu. You may collect these at a later date, but keep in mind accepting these gifts counts toward your daily collection limit.
I was told that Iceberries were sent to my Gifts menu but they're not there! Why?
Surplus Iceberries from games or challenges are not added to the Gifts menu until after you close and reload DragonVale. After you've reloaded DragonVale you will see that your Iceberry winnings have been added to the Backflip Studios gift total.
The Chilly Chronograph
The Chilly Chronograph provides rewards for every day you play during the Frosty Jubilee. Earn free Iceberries, Gems, and even dragons!
- Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises!
- If you miss a day, don’t worry, you can spend a few gems to catch up. You cannot collect a day’s reward in advance.
- You only have to login to DragonVale each day to be eligible for the reward. If you login, but forget to visit The Chilly Chronograph, your reward will still be available to collect next time you visit.
- Iceberries received from the Chilly Chronograph are a bonus and do not count towards your daily limit.
I received a gift of Iceberries from the Chilly Chronograph but they weren't added to my total. What happened?
Iceberries earned from the Chilly Chronograph do not count against your daily limit so they will be added to your overall Iceberry total, but won't appear in your daily count of 1000.
End of the Event
When does the Frosty Jubilee end?
The Frosty Jubilee will run through January 10th, but the Arctic Market will remain open for a brief time after the event has ended. This will give you the opportunity to turn in any leftover Iceberries for prizes.
I have Iceberries remaining in my Gifts menu. Will this be added to my total when the event ends?
Here’s the scoop. After the event ends, any Iceberries stored in your Gifts menu must be collected in order to be added to your total. You can collect a max of 1,000 Iceberries per day from your Gifts menu after the event ends.
I collected a large gift from a friend but only some of it was added to my total. What happened to the rest of my Iceberries?
If you collect a gift that puts you over the daily Iceberry limit (1,000 per day), the surplus Iceberries are removed from your friend's name and added to the Backflip Studios gift total. Please note that this does not happen until the next time you load DragonVale.
What happens to my leftover Iceberries at the end of the The Frosty Jubilee?
Nothing happens to your leftover Iceberries for ONE WEEK. You can still hop in the game, access the Arctic Market and spend your Iceberries however you'd like. At the END of that extra week, we'll turn your Iceberries into treats and place them into your gifts menu.
Why can I still buy Iceberries but not earn them?
Based on our decision to leave the Arctic Market open an extra week we had a discussion that was essentially, "What if I'm really close to getting a prize I really want? What do I do?" - which is a good question. What can we do for players who were close to achieving their goal, but were maybe on vacation when the event ended? Based on a small percentage of users who might want to reach for some items they missed, we decided to keep the Iceberries available in the Market.
Please note: To prevent any potential issues with purchases made as the event is ending, Iceberry purchasing will be turned off a few hours before the Arctic Market closes on January 18th.
