The Year of the Dragonfly is an event in Don't Starve Together, lasting from February 8 until ???, 2024. It is inspired by the Chinese Year of the Dragon, which started from February 10, 2024. In the Chinese zodiac, each year is related to an animal in a 12-year cycle.
The main idea of the event is that you must place a Start Tower on the water, after which 3 Race Checkpoints will appear (the player can place a couple more Race Checkpoints). After that, the players gather in the designated Race Checkpoint area and one of them activates it. After reporting to 3, a race will begin in which players must touch each Race Checkpoint with their boats and then return back to the Start Tower. The first one to do this wins and receives several Red Pouches. After the first player touches the Start Tower, a timer will begin, during which the other boats that touched all the Race Checkpoints must return to the zone to receive a prize. Otherwise, the player receives nothing.
