FrontierVille Adds French Fries Mission

FrontierVille developer Zynga introduced a new mission today, to remind players that frontier living isn’t just about bashing varmints and constructing buildings. Instead, players are tasked with introducing a now-classic food to the frontier: french fries!

The mission has three steps. Players must harvest 10 Potatoes, collect 10 Elbow Grease, and collect 10 Lard. The Lard and Elbow Grease can only be obtained for free with the help of neighbors.

Once players complete the mission, they are rewarded with 50 XP, and two French Fries. These French Fries provide players with 20 energy when consumed.

FrontierVille Adds Jackalope Lodge Missions & Badges

FrontierVille developer Zynga has finally introduced an achievement badges system into their frontier living RPG. Like most FrontierVille additions, the feature is well-integrated, and requires players to join the Jackalope Society and construct a Jackalope Lodge before badges can begin being earned.

The four-step process for joining the Jackalope Society requires players complete several standard tasks, including visiting neighbors, planting crops, and buying specific decorations. It culminates with the construction of the Jackalope Society Lodge itself. To construct the lodge, players will need to collect: Windows, Cement, Pegs, Shingles, Mallets, and Elbow Grease. All of these construction materials can only be received by requesting them from friends.

Once the Jackalope Lodge and quest line is complete, players can begin earning badges for various tasks completed around the homestead. Each badge comes in four levels, similar to FarmVille ribbons. Players can earn badges for turning in collections, hiring neighbors, growing your virtual family, and most other in-game tasks.

FrontierVille Releases New Mystery Animal Crate

FrontierVille developer Zynga reintroduced the game’s Mystery Animal Crate today, with three more exotic pets available as prizes.

The crate is for sale for 30 Horseshoes, and is guaranteed to contain either an Alpaca, a Turtle, or a Ferret. Not exactly the animals one thinks of when picturing frontier living. But that is probably why they are premium additions.

Players that collect all three of these mystery animals will once again be given a bonus stuffed bear statue.

FrontierVille Adds Fiery Decorations

FrontierVille developer Zynga has released another new batch of items. To prepare players for the impending fall, all the items have a fire theme! Players now have plenty of options for keeping their frontier family warm.

The new items are: Ring of Fire, Smoke Signaler, Chugging Burner, Wood Bin, Wood Pile, Hot Furnace, Raised Campfire, Tiki Torch, and Log Campfire.

Some of the new items are permanent additions to the FrontierVille store, and others are limited editions, available for just 12 more days. The items are for sale for a mixture of coins and Horseshoes.

FrontierVille Horseshoe Pit Introduced

FrontierVille developer Zynga introduced a special new building today, but players will need to do much more than help out their homestead to construct it.

To construct the Horseshoe Pit, players will first need to spend a little coins and wood, and whack it 10 times, same as a standard FrontierVille building. But to complete construction, players will need to collect a Wooden Board, a Bar Stool, a Gold Horseshoe, a Spike, a Bag of Sand, and 10 Measuring Tapes. If these items sound unfamiliar, that is because they are all brand new to the game. The Measuring Tapes are obtained by asking your friends for them via a Facebook wall post. But the other items can only be obtained by playing other popular Zynga games (unless a player wants to pay 50 Horseshoes for each).

The criteria for each Horseshoe Pit item:

Wooden Board: Harvest 200 Crops in FarmVille.
Spike: Gain 3 levels after level 5 in Mafia Wars.
Bag of Sand: Gain 1 level after level 5 in Treasure Isle.
Golden Horseshoe: Gain 1 level after level 5 in Zynga Poker.
Bar Stool: Gain 1 level after level 5 in Cafe World.

After construction is complete, players can use the Horseshoe Pit to win exclusive prizes. Players get one free horseshoe throw per day, and can buy additional throws for one (currency) horseshoe a piece. Players can win coins, XP, or energy. Rare prizes include large Horseshoe jackpots, Beef Jerky, Horses, and Mystery Animals.

FrontierVille Adds Camping Gear

FrontierVille developer Zynga added a collection of camping decorations this week, for those homesteaders that believe that even sleeping in a log cabin is too cushy. Like most FrontierVille item expansions, a few of the items are limited editions, but most are permanent additions to the FrontierVille shop.

The new items are: Popcorn Kettle, Pink Bed Roll, Green Bed Roll, Large Tent, Weenie Stick, Mallow Stick, Camp Pack, Trail Bag, Hanging Lantern, Lantern, Camping Seat, Camping Chair, Canteen, and Coffee Pot. The items are available for a mixture of coins and horseshoes. Many of the furnishing items also require a small amount of wood to purchase.

FrontierVille Kicks Off Labor Day Celebrations

Frontier living might be rough, but that isn’t stopping the citizens of Zynga’s FrontierVille from having some Labor Day fun on their homesteads. To celebrate the holiday, there are new missions, new schoolhouse lessons, and a new item collection.

The new missions must be purchased from the FrontierVille store, and all revolve around getting ready to go back to school. The first mission revolves around players finishing their farm chores, and requires players harvest crops, sell goats, and plant fruit trees.

The new school house missions (some of which are limited editions) are: Writing, Hunting, Canning, Early to Bed, and Healthy Education. They allow players to hire more neighbors, get more items from varmints, earn more food from harvesting, replenish energy faster, and give +5 to max energy.

Finally, the new Labor Day collection contains: Book Strap, School Bell, Paddle, Worm Apple, amd Globe. Players can obtain the items by tending clovers, tending neighbor potatoes, tending neighbor tomatos, harvest apple trees, and tending neighbor corn.

FrontierVille Releases Summer BBQ Decorations

FrontierVille developer Zynga has decided that it isn’t quite ready to stop paying tribute to Summer yet. The company has released a new collection of Summer BBQ FrontierVille decorations, to help players further extend the season’s good vibes.

The new decorations are: Picnic Table, Tasty Pig Table, Lawn Recliner, Drinks Tub, Melon Table, Burger Grill, Charcoal, Messy Table, Dutch Oven, BBQ Grill, Steak Grill, Pot o’ Veggies, Smoker, and a Chuck Wagon. The additions are an even mixture of permanent decorations and limited editions, and an even mixture of coin and horseshoe items.

In our opinion the Burger Grill is the most exciting of the new coin items. One thing is for sure – these new decorations are definitely not vegetarian friendly!

FrontierVille Varmint Cannons Now Available

FrontierVille developer Zynga has been teasing the release of varmint cannons for a while now, and over the weekend the feature was sent live. Like most new FrontierVille features, before players can take advantage of this new firepower, they will need to complete a line of quests and construct a new building.

The new Foundry building lies at the heart of the new varmint cannons. The Foundry costs 47,500 coins to purchase, along with a hefty helping of wood and energy to erect the frame. To complete construction, players will need to collect 5 each of: Shingles, Mallets, Pegs, Windows, and Cement. Players can not freely gift these materials to one another. Instead, a player has to specifically request these materials from a friend, who can then send one material over.

Once the Foundry is complete, players can craft cannons that allow them to blast away varmints (snakes, foxes, bears, and gophers) with one click. Firing a cannon spends one Powder Keg. Players can purchase Powder Kegs for Horseshoes, or build them for free by combining Saltpeter with Fire at the Foundry.

Players must also complete the Cannon questline before they have full access to these varmint blasters. The quests are fairly standard, and require an even mixture of getting help from neighbors, and interacting with the Homestead.

FrontierVille Storage Shed Now Available

FrontierVille developer Zynga introduced a new Storage Shed building this weekend, giving players a place to put all those unneeded items they aren’t quite ready to sell.

The Storage Shed frame costs 20,000 coins to purchase from the FrontierVille Store. Players will then need to spend a total of 120 wood to finish erecting the frame. To complete construction, players will need to collect a new batch of items – not the construction materials required in every other FrontierVille building.

Players will need five each of Windows, Cement, Pegs, Mallets, and Shingles, as well as ten Elbow Grease. For now these items can’t be purchased with Horseshoes, nor can they be gifted from the FrontierVille gifts tab. Instead, the only way to get Elbow Grease is to make a Facebook wall post requesting it, and the only way to receive the other items is to request it from specific FrontierVille neighbors.

Once completed, the Storage Shed can store 20 items, with storage expansions “coming soon.” The Storage Shed has a set of collectibles and a unique new series of goals, as well.
