Year of the Gobbler is an event in Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign, that lasted from January 19 until February 14, 2017. It is inspired by the Chinese Year of the Rooster, which started from January 28, 2017, and continued until February 15, 2018. In the Chinese zodiac, each year is related to an animal in a 12-year cycle.

During this event, the Clucky Winter Hat Skin was given upon opening the game. Also, the chance for Gobblers to spawn from Berry Bushes is three times higher than usual.

Players can revisit this event by setting Events to Year of the Gobbler in the world creation menu. Event-only themed skins will be disabled when revisiting the event.

The Gobbler Shrine is a craftable Structure located in the Structures Tab, and requires 8 Gold Nuggets and 2 Boards to craft. It is always available to craft and does not require prototyping. Offering any type of Berry Bush or a Juicy Berry Bush to the Gobbler Shrine will grant players access to the Offerings Tab where they are able to acquire event-specific items using Lucky Gold Nuggets.

Gobbler Shrines attract nearby Gobblers to them and renders them passive to the player, meaning that they won't run away when approached. Gobblers will also not eat berries off of bushes while near a Gobbler Shrine. Gobblers, however, will still eat Berries lying on the ground.

If the Gobbler Shrine is destroyed by Hammering it, it will drop any Berry Bush planted in it, along with its resources. Gobbler Shrines are also flammable.

Similar to the Ancient Tab and the Ancient Pseudoscience Station, these items cannot be prototyped and then made on the go in the future; in order to craft an item under this tab, the player must always be near a Gobbler Shrine.

Three Firecrackers can be acquired in exchange for 1 Lucky Gold Nugget at the Gobbler Shrine. They can be set on fire with a Torch or Lighter to produce sparkles, and will be destroyed in the process. When set off, nearby Mobs such as Hounds will be startled and cower in fear, giving the Firecrackers a use apart from the festivities.

Firecrackers are also introduced in the Hamlet DLC.

The Lucky Fan can be acquired in exchange for 3 Lucky Gold Nuggets at the Gobbler Shrine.

When used the first three times, it loses 22.2% durability per use. It summons a whirlwind that destroys nearby Structures, causing damage to nearby Mobs and also to the player. This is similar to but not the same as the function of the Weather Pain. The fan also cools players down and puts out nearby Fires similar to the Luxury Fan.

When used the last three times, it loses 11.1% durability per use and does not create whirlwinds anymore.

The three costume pieces of the Lucky Beast are hats and can be obtained in exchange for 8 Lucky Gold Nuggets each at the Gobbler Shrine.

While they are worn as hats, the "/dance" emote will be replaced with a different dancing animation. If the player simultaneously wears a costume piece and dances, a Sanity bonus equal to that of the Tam o' Shanter (+6.7 Sanity Meter per minute) will be applied to the character. This bonus is increased if there are more players participating in the vicinity (wearing a costume piece and dancing). This bonus can stack up to a max of 3 times (+20 Sanity Meter per minute), for three players dancing.[Verification Needed]

Durability only decreases when the character is dancing while wearing a costume. Durability lasts for a day, and a Sewing Kit will repair 100% of its durability.
