Festive Dinner is unlocked when the player reaches level 149.
Festive Dinner was introduced during the Magic Tour and Christmas Update's second Timed Challenge, the "Christmas Time Event" (December 2016). When the Update was first released, Festive Dinner was hidden, and did not appear on player's boards until the Christmas 2016 Timed Challenges began. This was the third time that content installed on a device by an update file was set to be hidden until a pre-determined date, and was used as a way to have two separate Timed Challenge Events installed at the same time, with staggered start dates.
For the duration of this Update, Festive Dinner could be opened from level 7 onward to allow all players to take part in the update's timed challenges.
Christmas Balls special items were needed in addition to energy points to play Festive Dinner. While the Christmas Time Timed Challenges were still active, Christmas Balls were given as rewards for every successful investigation for every picture, and as rewards for banishing Anomalies, but not for playing puzzles.
From the Diary:
"Today Christy told me an unexpected piece of news. It turns out Richard gave her an envelope and made her promise to open it before Christmas. The time has come, so we pulled out a photo of my uncle's last Christmas in the Mansion. It's my chance to get to know Richard better and imagine that he is here with us."
