FarmVille: Double Mastery on now for Thanksgiving celebration

Forget "Double Mastery Weekends." Zynga has announced the launch of "Double Mastery Week" in FarmVille, giving all farmers something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Whether you're a tree farmer, or just like to master each and every crop released in the game, this week is the time to work on just that. For the record, we had expected Double Mastery to turn on this weekend, but these extra few days are definitely appreciated!

From now until Monday, November 28 at 9:00 PM Pacific, you'll be able to earn double the mastery points on each and every tree and crop planted. Unfortunately, we're not given a chance for double mastery on animals, but two out of three is still pretty good! Of course, you can also make this boost even better if you employ the tree rotation setup in Orchards, and use Bushels when harvesting crops, raising each individual square to three Mastery Points per harvest. Talk about fast progress!

With Winter Wonderland quickly approaching, you'll likely want to get as much done in your current farms as possible (I know, I do too), and this is definitely the way to go about it. Just how much you'll actually accomplish will be up to your own dedication to playing this week, including playing on Thanksgiving proper, if you really want to get the most out of it. Just think of it this way - if you're waiting for pies to bake or eggs to boil in the real world, you'll still have a few minutes to login to your farm long enough to use an Arborist and your SuperCombine, right? Why not make the most out of this week and earn some mastery signs along the way?
