FarmVille Penguin Escapade Goals: Everything you need to know

To go along with the Penguin Escapade feature in FarmVille, that serves as a preview to the sorts of things we can expect in Winter Wonderland (the game's fourth complete farm), there are also six goals to complete as well. Of course, they're themed around Penguins and some cool winter-decorations, and you'll have two weeks to finish them (luckily, you can complete the requirements across multiple farms). Here's a guide to getting everything you can from these adorable penguins.

Every Journey Begins...

  • Get 6 Pens and Papers

  • Harvest 200 Fruit

  • Harvest the Aviary Once

It doesn't matter what kind of fruit crop you grow, so feel free to grow something with a short growth time, or something that you've yet to master. As for the Pens and Papers you'll need to ask your friends to send those to you via a post on your news feed. For finishing this first goal, you'll receive 100 XP, 2,500 coins and an Animated Penguin Slide.

...With A Single Step

  • Get 6 FarmVille Stamps

  • Harvest 200 Vegetables

  • Harvest 1 Horse Paddock

This one is incredibly similar to the first, but with vegetables instead of fruit, and Stamps instead of Pens and Papers. The Stamps are still earned through a general request on your feed. Finish this second goal and you'll receive 200 XP, 2,500 coins and a Bow Tie Tree.

Gifts for the Guests

  • Get 6 Souvenirs

  • Harvest 200 Strawberries

  • Harvest 1 Bow Tie Tree

The Souvenirs are earned - you guessed it - through another wall post. This will likely be the first goal to really slow you down, as you'll most likely find yourself waiting two days to harvest the Bow Tie Tree, unless you use an Orchard to speed that along. Either way, you'll receive 300 XP, a Tuxedo Gnome and 2,500 coins for finishing this goal.

Bottles of Fun!

  • Get 6 Water Bottles

  • Harvest 200 Lilac

  • Harvest 1 Orchard

Lilac take 10 hours to grow. The Water Bottles, again, will be earned from friends, and your Orchard can be on any of your three farms, so if you always leave one "ready" for just such occasions, you're golden there. For finishing this fourth goal, you'll receive 500 XP, 2,500 coins and a Penguin in a Kiddie Pool.

Packing Up

  • Get 6 Suitcases

  • Harvest 200 Cranberries

  • Harvest 1 Aviary

Cranberries take 10 hours to grow, but if you plant them immediately after you get done with the Lilac in the Bottles of Fun goal, you won't have to wait as long once this Packing Up goal officially starts. Finish this goal and you'll be rewarded with 750 XP, 2,500 coins and an Emu with a Bow Tie.

Bow Tie Party

  • Get 6 Bow Ties

  • Harvest 200 Peppermint

  • Harvest 10 Horses

In theory, you should be able to harvest your Horse Paddock or Stable and quickly finish that requirement. As for the Peppermint, it takes a full day to grow. For finishing this final goal, you'll earn 1,000 XP, 5,000 coins and a Penguin on a Snowmobile. Actually, it's a pair of penguins, and they're dressed for the winter season, so it's a particularly cute item, if you ask me.

Again, you'll have two full weeks to finish these goals, so feel free to complete those new Thanksgiving goals in Lighthouse Cove first, and tackle some of these later, as the former are far more limited.
