Make Some French Fries, Send A Jack-in-the-Box – FrontierVille Updates!

In addition to unleashing a large new system of Badges in the game, Zynga has been hard at work adding other new features to FrontierVille over the past few days. The first comes in the form of an entirely new quest that introduces a new food item, and the other is in the introduction of a new free gift, something that hasn’t happened in the game in quite some time.

Ask Your Friends to Help You Make French Fries!

A new mission is now available in the game, called “Want Fries with Them Fries?” Essentially, the mission requires you to accumulate the ingredients necessary to cook french fries. You’ll need to harvest (not just plant) 10 Potatoes, gather 10 Elbow Greases, and get 10 Blocks of Lard.

To earn the Elbow Greases, you’ll need to post a news item to your wall asking your friends to help you. For the Blocks of Lard, however, you can earn these by sending individual gift requests to friends, asking them specifically to send you the lard block. Both the Grease and the Lard will be consumed as you complete the mission, so if you’re saving Grease for some other mission, make sure to finish it before collecting the 10 lard or planting the potatoes necessary to finish this quest!

Once you finish the mission, you’ll be able to share some free fries with your friends on your wall. These French Fries are a consumable item which give off 20 energy when eaten, and you’ll be able to find the fries waiting to be eaten in your inventory.

How close are you to finishing this new quest?

Send a Jack-in-the-Box to Friends While You Still Can!

If you’re someone that likes to collect every available item in a game, you’ll need to be quick to ask a friend (or two) to send you the new item found on the game’s free gifts page, the Jack-in-the-Box. This item can be used as a decoration on your Homestead, but otherwise has no real purpose.

It is animated, however, and will only be available for a limited amount of time. That being the case, make sure to head over to FrontierVille’s page on Facebook sooner, rather than later, to make sure you help your friends earn a Jack-in-the-Box, in the hopes that they’ll return the favor.

    I wasn’t sure if the jack in the box served an actual purpose or not, and I have been sent a few, so I tried to sell it, and they sell for 600 coins :)
