FarmVille Podcast - March 4th:

Hey Farmers and welcome to this week’s installment of the Official FarmVille Podcast. My name is Lexilicious and I am here to bring you all of the latest news and information about FarmVille from Zynga. This week, we will be discussing our latest releases and everyone will be getting a sneak peek of things coming to FarmVille in the near future.

Now, before we get into discussing all of our latest releases, I would like to give a quick thank you to all of the players who participated in our Valentine’s Day Dessert Contest. We challenged everyone to bring FarmVille to life with ovens, flour and just a sprinkle of creativity. Well Farmers, you rose to the challenge like true baking champions. The cooks in our Dessert Contest whipped up some of the most creative, edible and romantic works of art we've ever seen. Choosing the winners of this contest was no easy task, but after much deliberation, the FarmVille Team decided upon the most imaginative, delicious and well presented FarmVille desserts. If you would like to check out our winning entries, please visit the official Farmville forums and congratulations again to our winners who will be walking away with 1000 Farm Cash and 1,000,000 Coins. If you have an idea for a contest you would like to see held, please visit the Suggestions section of the FarmVille Forums and make sure to share your ideas with the FarmVille Team. And remember Farmers, these contests are a great way to showcase your talents and earn some extra farm cash, so make sure to enter next time for your chance to win big.

Latest Releases
So this week was loaded with more great items from the Limited Edition Fairy Tale theme like the Black Dragon and Castle Ruins, but we also know that everyone was working hard to collect gold from those Leprechaun cottages. Well, the wait is over and the Pot of Gold is now available! Just put your collected Gold Pieces into it and then redeem them for St. Patrick’s Day-themed unique prizes!

FarmVille Pot of Gold Guide

You’ll get your somewhat empty-looking Pot of Gold for free the first time you play FarmVille after the update, and you will immediately be entered into Placement Mode. You can place the Pot of Gold on your farm now, or you can choose to place it in your Gift Box for use later by switching to the Multi-Tool.

Once the Pot of Gold is on the farm you can click on it, then select “Look Inside” to view your progress menu.

The Pot of Gold works like many of our other item-gathering events in FarmVille. You acquire Gold Pieces through various methods, then “Use” them to place them in your Pot of Gold. As you accumulate these items you can redeem them for exclusive items.

There are five different types of Gold pieces that you can acquire by harvesting your Leprechaun’s Cottage, harvesting a Neighbor’s Leprechaun’s Cottage, requesting Gold pieces from your Neighbors directly, from your feed and by purchasing them with Farm Cash. You can purchase 5 Gold pieces at a time by clicking on the “Buy gold” button for 5 Farm Cash.

As you put Gold Pieces in your Mailbox you’ll see the gold coin meter on the left fill up. The physical look of the pot also changes as you stuff it full of gold. You can also click on the “Comparison” tab to compare how many Valentines you’ve accumulated compared to your neighbors.
To get one of the special exclusive prizes, simply click on the “Redeem” button next to the prize you want—if you have enough gold (the available amount of gold that is redeemable is at the top of the window) you’ll be asked to confirm the purchase.

If you hit “Accept” the prize will be stored in your Gift Box and you can share an extra prize with your friends. Now, unlike a few of our previous item-gathering events, there will not be a second page of exclusive prizes added. These six items are pretty much it for this event.

If you have any questions on how this feature works or would like to share any feedback with us, please make sure to visit the FarmVille forums to view our official guides and share your thoughts and opinions with the FarmVille Team.


And on that note, let’s go ahead and get into the coming soon segment of this week’s podcast. Now, we know everyone is excited about the upcoming release of FarmVille English Countryside. In the English Countryside, you’ll get a second farm with access to new crops, new items, and all kinds of fun activities we know you’re going to love! The FarmVille team is busy putting the final touches on the project so keep your eyes peeled on the English Countryside fan page for sneak peeks and more details on this exciting launch.

In addition to the upcoming English Countryside release, the new Spring Garden will be making an appearance in FarmVille in the near future. The Spring Garden must be constructed with the help of your Neighbors and will not only be a beautiful decoration for your Farm, but it can also be harvested for eggs or flowers that you will be able to redeem for special items in the future.

The Spring Countdown will also be starting in the coming weeks and will be accompanied by the release of our new Mardi Gras theme. This theme will feature some of your favorite items from last year as well as some great new additions to display on your farm. If you have any ideas for items you would like to see in our upcoming theme, please make sure to visit the Official FarmVille Forums or leave a comment for us on the podcast.

Alright folks, well that’s it from me this week. Again, my name is Lexilicious and I will be back on march 18th to bring you all of the latest news and information about FarmVille from Zynga.
