Pioneer Trail Stacks O Sugar Plums Timed Goal: Everything you need to know

It seems that for the Winter Holiday season, Zynga is content to release one larger feature in Pioneer Trail - that being Holiday Hollow - and then flesh out our celebration using timed goals. We've already seen a "Flower Power" timed goal launch in the game, and now we see one called "Stacks O Sugar Plums" that is incredibly similar. You'll have five days to complete the goal once you manually start it on your Homestead, but don't fret if you feel like you're overwhelmed right now - you can put off accepting this goal, as it won't expire until January 31, 2012.

Once you do decide to start this one, you'll have three tasks to complete, as you might expect:

  • Harvest 40 Sugar Plums

  • Collect 20 Reindeer Troughs

  • Collect 20 Reindeer Tethers

Sugar Plums can be harvested after four hours. The other two items need to be earned by asking your friends to send those items to you. Once you finish this goal, you'll receive a Big Present, 20 Candy Canes and 500 XP as your prizes. Remember, these Candy Canes are used to earn even more prizes within Holiday Hollow proper, so they're definitely worth earning!

Remember, you'll need to be at least Level 15 to access this goal, but from there you can tackle it at your leisure. Feel free to finish some other tasks in the game if you can't dedicate the proper time to this goal within the five day time limit!
