Farmville Nutcracker Theater Complete Guide


Farmville has released a new feature which is similar to Fairytale Fields Farm’s Jack’s Mystree Nursery..  This is fifth option, that allows us to choose 4 of 5 tasks to BEAT Magical Toy Land …. your Dirt Farmer team has a complete guide for you to how this new feature will work. Please don’t forget to share it with your friends if you find it helpful.
Update – Some additional birds have been added to this feature for the holidays. The Beat event is still coded to require 10 so this is an optional addition. Any 10 that you get will meet the requirement.
 
 
THE HOLDAY SPARKLE REQUIRED FOR THIS FEATURE CAN BE OBTAINED IN TWO WAYS FROM THE NEWSFEED AND BY CRAFTING – A FEW THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT EACH
 
NEWSFEED
 
THERE IS A LIMIT TO HOW MANY CAN BE COLLECTED DAILY FROM THE NEWSFEED, THIS APPEARS TO BE AROUND 20, BUT IS NOT APPARENT IN CODE SO WE CANNOT BE CERTAIN OF THE NUMBER. IN AN ODD TWIST THE POSTS WHERE YOUR FRIENDS HAVE COMPLETED A BIRD WILL OFTEN LET YOU COLLECT, EVEN AFTER YOU HAVE HIT THE LIMIT ON THE HELP POSTS.
 
DO NOT GO BY THE OK MESSAGE TO DETERMINE IF YOU HAVE HIT YOUR LIMIT. EXPIRED OR CLAIMED POSTS WILL ALSO SHOW THE OK MESSAGE, AND YOU CAN STILL COLLECT FROM POSTS WITH CLAIMS REMAINING. GO BY THE “YOU HAVE CLAIMED ALL YOU CAN FROM YOUR FRIENDS TODAY” MESSAGE.
 
THERE APPEARS TO BE SOME VARIANCE BETWEEN PLAYERS AS TO HOW MANY THEY CAN COLLECT. THIS IS A BUG, IT IS NOT SOMETHING ZYNGA DID TO MAKE THE FEATURE MORE CHALLENGING . THERE ARE NO VARIANTS CODED INTO THIS FEATURE, AND AS SUCH IT IS COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ZYNGA TO HAVE SET ANY VARIANCE INTENTIONALLY.
 
THE CLAIM LIMIT IS ON A 24 HOUR ROLLING SCHEDULE. (YES IT CONFUSES US TOO AND WE WISH THEY’D GO BACK TO A SPECIFIC RESET TIME) THAT MEANS THAT IF YOU CLAIM ONE AT 1 PM YOUR TIME AND THEN DON’T COLLECT ANYMORE UNTIL 3 PM, BUT AT 3PM YOU COLLECT TO YOUR LIMIT, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CLAIM ONLY ONE AT 1 PM THE NEXT DAY BEFORE GETTING THE “YOU HAVE CLAIMED ALL YOU CAN FROM YOUR FRIENDS TODAY” MESSAGE. THEN AT 3 PM, YOU WILL AGAIN BE ABLE TO COLLECT THE REST OF YOUR LIMIT – EVEN THOUGH IT IS THE SAME DAY.
 
 
CRAFTING
 
 
REMEMBER THAT THE CROPS TO CRAFT HOLIDAY SPARKLE CAN BE PLANTED ON ANY FARM ,THEY ARE NOT LOCKED TO MAGICAL TOY TOWN. 
 
THERE IS NO LIMIT TO HOW MANY YOU CAN CRAFT IN A DAY, OTHER THAN HOW MANY CRAFT SHOP STATIONS THAT YOU HAVE AVAILABLE AND HOW MANY BUSHELS YOU CAN GROW OR OBTAIN.
 
 
 
 
An animated look at the new birds
A look at where they will fall in terms of rarity
First a look at the high resolution animation of the pop up we’ll receive on our farms once the feature goes live


As with Mystrees the game gifts us 3 Holiday Sparkle to start Remember that these cannot be used from the gift box, only from within the feature.




Now a look at the 2 stages of the building we’ll be placing on our farms
Stage 0
Stage 1


A look at the tutorial images we have found



Instead of the tree saplings in Jack’s Mystrees, we’ll be placing eggs and feeding them Holiday Sparkle to be able to crack open the Nutcracker Eggs to find out which different chicken and ducks our egg hides inside it. The widely-despised 8 hour wait time in between stages has returned  again in this feature. You do have the option to speed this up to instant for 8 Farm Cash per tend.

Nutcracker Egg

When you open the feature you have one egg on stage 5 of 6 ready to warm. You will need SIX Holiday Sparkle to warm it and hatch it into a bird, so you will not be able to do so until/unless you acquire 3 additional Holiday Sparkle from an alternate source.



Once you have warmed the egg through stage 6 "warm" will convert to "place and hatch" place the egg on your farm and remember not to click anything until it has completed it's magic or you risk whoa farmer and rendering the egg unhatchable, if the pattern established with Mystrees continues.

Your egg will hatch into a bird.




You will be able to share completed Holiday Sparkle to the newsfeed NOT an ingredient this time.




& if you click "view" under "My Theater"




You will see a list of all available birds with the quantity of each that you have hatched so far.




A look at the Holiday Sparkle Recipe. One improvement over the MYSTREES is that all 3 crops can be grown, there is no post-for bushel needed. They are of course, all available via the Bushel Swap feature as well. The posts for this feature will also share/give completed Holiday Sparkle.

A look at the birds we will be raising in this feature. There will again be common,uncommon and rare birds. We do not yet know if this feature will be the mysterious 5th option to BEAT Magical Toy Town.

A look at the new rewards that were added with the Holiday Update (Remember you now only have to get 10 of 15 to meet the Nutcracker Theater task to BEAT Magical Toy Town and odds have improved with the addition of the new birds)
 
The additional birds can be won in the same stations and you will still use Holiday Sparkle to warm them. Remember that the second page is purely optional for those who wish to purchase more stations to warm more Holiday Eggs at one time, and you do not need to purchase any stations on the second page in order to win all the birds.
Scrooge Chicken
(Rare)
Milk and Cookies Duck
(Rare)
Candy Cane Duck
(Uncommon)
 
Holiday Reindeer Duck
(Uncommon)
Holiday Gift Chicken

A look at the number of Holiday Sparkle that you will need to progress through each stage. (You will have 6 free plots to start with and can unlock additional plots for 10 Farm Cash each instead of 20. The Farm Cash plots are not necessary, only there as an option if you wish to raise more at a time to speed the process)








 
Level Holiday Sparkle to Tend to Next Level Waiting Period 
     
1 1 8 hours
2 2 8 hours

  1. After I collect 1 or 2 Holiday Sparkles I get the message that I have collected my limit.

  2. I can't open the Nutcracker Theater but on one farm, I looked in the market, my gift box and the icon that was on the right side of my screen to open the theater is no longer there nor is it any where else that I can find but to go to my winter wonderland farm, click on the actual theater building itself to open for the eggs. That also means I can no longer place eggs on any other farm to hatch as I was able to do when it rolled out. I was unable to play for about 4-5 weeks beginning at the last week or two of November through all of December and when I returned I had forgotten which farm the nutcracker theater was on. It's taken me almost two full weeks to find it, it's likely gonna end before I have many birds. My game is horrible for traveling from farm to farm so I spend much time on each farm, make sure I've done everything I want and then to the next, favoring some farms over others. Home, England and then Fairytale and Riviera, Mediterranean would be enough for me, they are my largest farms. I can't afford to use the other farms. Unless I could buy expansions there's no room to place many items and grow crops, coin expansions are rare if ever offered so I'm losing interest in a game I love because of what's been done to it, The added farms would be great if coin expansions were available as they were 2009-20012 or so, Anyway, my main issue is needing to know is my game needing something fixed or is this theater now only available to most or all others on one farm? I asked a neighbor she also has to find her theater. I didn't ask if it's always been the case but I would like to know so I can use the feature more often and share information about this feature if anyone can help from here on Dirt Farmer it's appreciated.

  3. How do you get rid of this? I don't want it on my farm any more. You can only move it; can't delete or store it.
