******* QUESTS *******

Carnival de los Muertos Chapter 4

It's hard to believe, but we are getting ready to enter the Chapter 4 week of the Carnival de los Muertos Farm. YES! That means we are half way through this new farm. Craft 3 Cursed Fruits and 2 Oscuro Sombereros in the Brewing Wagon in order to get a jump on the first 2 stages of crafting. Speaking of Crafting for this Chapter Quest. Be sure to store SOUR PUMPKIN, BLEEDING DRUPE AND TOXOIDS BUSHELS that take 16 hours to grow and those SPIDER FLOWERS that take 18 hours to grow. The crafting will stay at LEVEL 2 or lower but there will be a total of 14 recipes needed in total for all 6 Stages of this quest. What do we get for all of our begging, crafting and planting? We get 6 unique rewards. There's a Caramel Skull Tree...mmmm...CARAMEL...there is a deco named the Clown Trailer but I don't see a clown. I hope he doesn't POP OUT...the horror! We have a Rosa Fox, and there is a Veiled Giraffe. The Voodoo Bear is exceptionally creepy and finally we have a Muertos Caballeria Pegasus. I wonder why we don't have any CHUPACABRE'S in this new farm...hmmm?

Trick or Treat Quest

Trick or Treat...SMELL MY FEET...Give me quest that's easy to BEAT!!! Just in time for Halloween we have the Trick or Treat Quest starting Thursday OCT 20th and it will run through Halloween until NOV 3rd. As far as crafting there will be a total of 7 Winery Recipes, 7 Spa recipes and 6 Bakery recipes needed for this Quest. Stockpile those bushels. BUCKWHEAT AND RED TULIP CROPS TAKES 23 HOURS TO GROW and ARTICHOKE CROP THAT YOU WILL NEED BUSHELS FROM TO THIS RECIPE TAKES 4 DAYS TO GROW. Besides the usual consumables that always include a Book of XP we can expect to earn a few chilling rewards. There is a colorful Spider Tree for the Tree Farmers. A Trickster Gnome is wearing a sheet and carrying a trick or trick basket. We have a Mummy Zombie Chicken, and I'm going to guess it was a MUMMY CHICKEN that got bit by a ZOMBIE, because if you got bit by a Mummy you're just some SCHMUCK that got bit by a mummy, and finally we have a Spider Bat Pegasus.

******* COUNTDOWN *******

The GRAVE DANGER COUNTDOWN starts this coming Tuesday, and with it we will see 16 days of awesome spooky rewards and a 17th bonus prize that can be earned. An Apple Poison Tree we have. I guess because there already is a POISON APPLE tree in the game and they had to name it something different, or because YODA wrote this countdown he did. We also have a Googly Eyed Tree and it will actually follow you, yes it will, try this, once you place the Googly Eyed Tree on your farm, stand up and move from left to right, the eyes will follow you. We have a Wraith Lantern Family because haunting just isn't fun alone. There is a Spooky Cat Hut deco if you want your farm to look like it was decorated by TiM Burton. We also have a Gargoyle Clock Tower for decorating. We have a Shrouded Wraith Cat and a kinky looking red headed gnome in a Pumpkin Hot Tub, because let's face it, Halloween is now 50% scary and 50% sexy, except at my house. We have a Button Eyed Dog with a lobotomy scar. We have a Rock Star Skelly which is one of those things that we don't actually know what it is, soooo I'm just gonna guess DECO. There's a Pumpkin Chain Owl for Heather, and we have a Samain Raccoon...COOOOOONS!!! We love the coons. There's a Cobwebbed Hyena, that sounds nasty. I have a Grave Dancer peaCOCK, and we have a Well Witcher Cow, of course there's a deer that I don't think anyone wants, but if you do it's a Autumn Scared Deer and the 16th reward is a Scythe Tail Uncorn, and we did mention a BONUS REWARD? For this countdown, if you collect all 16 of the daily stamps you will be awarded a Dark Knight Unicorn, and spoiler, it's NOT Batman!

******* Other News *******

It turns out ZYNGA won't be selling it's Headquarters after all. Gaming giant Zynga is shelving a plan to sell its lavish headquarters in San Francisco. After exploring a possible sale of its corporate home for months — a deal that could have fetched more than $500 million — the struggling creator of games like Farmville and Words With Friends has found that the cost of leasing it back would be too high. In other words THE RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH!!! Zynga — whose founder Mark Pincus stepped down as chief executive in March, just days after announcing his intent to put the Design District building on the block — bought the building in 2012 for $228 million. At the time, the deal was tagged as a symbol of Silicon Valley decadence, as Zynga decked out its offices with a gourmet cafeteria, a gym, a bar and an acupuncture clinic...really? It does make me feel good to know someone was STICKING it to them while they were STICKING it to us. But while Zynga has grappled with a slew of flopped gaming titles, the building has doubled in value. Zynga’s about-face comes as San Francisco’s tech-fueled real estate boom tumbles into correction territory, in other words, they have crashed, or in farmville terms, the chickens have come home to roost. While demand from overseas buyers may continue to prop up sale prices, many expect office rents will drop in the coming months. Zynga itself has searched for tenants to occupy excess space in the seven-story, 670,000-square-foot building at rates north of $60 per square foot. Hey y'all, let's all chip in a few dollars a month and rent a few square feet from Zynga just so we can get in the building and punch 'em in the forehead.

We all know that playing Farmville isn't getting any easier these days. Whether Farmville is throttling  access to your friends or the  Facebook newsfeed is hiding them from you it's hard to find help links on the newsfeed.  Add that to the fact that a lot of fellow players have quit and it becomes very challenging to  find help.  That's why you should join one or all of the Dirt Farmers SHARE Groups. Mam-Maw's Trading Post, Quest Help and More, The VOTE HELP Group and GOT SHEEP are link sharing groups where you can find neat items and even get help with common FV activities.  We also have several helpful groups such as The Dirt Farmer, Farmville News Network and others! Be sure to ASK to JOIN today and please tell your FV friends about these helpful resources.
