And just when you thought Zynga
was going to forget about Thanksgiving
in Treasure Isle
, the team has decided to honor the original
island hoppers with new quests, maps to explore and limited edition items. Up first is the setting of these new events, the Gravy Isles. Expiring in 21 days, the Gravy Isles include Forest Friends and Cranberry Fields first available with Festive Feast, Seasonal Squash and Corn Cobb Hill becoming available as you train your Turkey--but more on that later.
In Cranberry Fields and Forest Friends, you'll be presented with your first quest, "Turkey Tots":
- Find and Disguise 10 Turkey Tots
- Collect 25 Cranberries
- Buy one Plough from the Market (500 coins)
Completing this mission within 12 hours will score players the Gold Prize of 600 coins and 40 XP. Return to your home island for yet another mission that you'll find more about behind the break.
Once you touch down on your home island, you'll find a nice and plump turkey either sitting on your beach or inside your backpack. While it certainly is tempting to just throw him on the spit and get to cooking, there's work to be done. Like the other pathetic animals that seem to gravitate towards your island, you'll have to bring him back to greatness by asking your friends for help or paying up in Island Cash. It's only then that you'll be to embark on the ultimate Thanksgiving quest, exploring the three remaining islands for more treasure. To help your friends in their exploration, Cranberry Sauce--a food good for 15 Energy--is giftable for free.
Return home once more to prepare for the most amazing Thanksgiving feast ever seen. Operating much like the Pumpkin Basket during Halloween
, buy or collect RSVPs by asking friends to fill your banquet table. The more RSVPs you collect, the better items you can buy to complete the meal. There is also a long list of Thanksgiving items available in the Market like Cranberry Truck, which for 40 Island Cash will give you 10 extra backpack spaces. For even more backpack space, the Big Barn will give the same as the truck for the same exact price. The rest of the items available include:
- Orange and Yellow Maple Trees: 250 coins each
- Cranberry Crate: 100 coins
- Plough: 500 coins
- Cornstalks: 200 coins
- Squirrel Table: 10,000 coins
- Small Squash: 100 coins
- Wooden Fence: 100 coins
With this many things to do in Treasure Isle, you might be island hopping right until it's time for dinner this Thursday. Check out the forums for more details on these events and do remember not to get too wrapped up
in the islands. This is
a holiday about eating, you know. Find the rest of our Thanksgiving coverage right here.
