CityVille Work of Art Timed Goal: Everything you need to know

While you may be pretty focused on finishing the many parts of CityVille's Halloween event, if you're looking for something else to work on, on the side, you'll be happy to know that Louise has come back to offer you a new timed goal called "A Work of Art." This timed goal sees you brushing up on your artistry by putting on an Art Show for all of your town's citizens.

You'll have three tasks to make this show a success:

  • Get 18 Art Prints

  • Harvest 70 Cranberries

  • Remodel a Timeshare Tower

These tasks are all fairly simple, but can be more than a bit time consuming (which is unfortunate, as you're of course being timed here). The Art Prints are earned by asking your friends to send them to you via a general wall post, while Cranberries take a full 12 hours to grow (if your friends don't come by and tend them first). Finally, remodeling a Timeshare Tower is the easiest task, so long as you've already built the Remodel HQ in your town. From there, just change your mouse pointer to the remodel icon in the game's menu (in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen) and click on a Timeshare Tower to choose a new "paint scheme." The cheapest one costs around 33,000 coins (the building's original paint scheme costs less but that's only a valid option if you've already changed the look of your existing towers in your town).

If you can finish this timed goal within two days, you'll receive the Gold Trophy, an Artist's Easel decoration, 2,400 coins and 1,300 Goods. If you can't finish it quite so quickly, but still finish within the first 72 hours, you won't earn the Artist's Easel, but you will earn a Silver Trophy, 2,400 coins and 1,300 Goods. Finally, if you finish the goal at any point after the first 72 hours have passed, you'll receive just 1,300 Goods. That's still a valuable prize, all thing's considered, but if you're going for the top prize, make sure to plan ahead as much as you can before voluntarily starting the time limit in your own game - that is, have Cranberries ready to harvest - so you'll have the best chance of success.

What do you think of this newest Timed Goal? Will you wait until after the Halloween event to try this one out, or are you already ready for a break from the monsters now taking over your city? Sound off in the comments.
