Go moonlight at Arkadium's Twilight Carnival -- it's a game full of games
Adding attractions and decorations, plus clearing garbage and picking up trash will increase Happiness. Picking up trash is instantaneous, but clearing garbage is a frustrating deal when you're only allowed to clear them one at a time. Plus, it takes 5 minutes to remove a broken wheel and 4 hours for a ramshackle hut. (Granted, the hut would probably take four hours to clear in real life. But in Facebook games, even a minute can feel like eternity.) You can speed these along with Crystals, the game's premium currency, which you get 10 free to start with.
More coins and XP can be earned by playing games and picking up trash at your friends' carnivals. The cool thing about this is that games you can't play because you're not high leveled enough on your own carnival, can be played at your friends' if they've got them.
Overall, Twilight Carnival is a bundle of small, quick games wrapped in a larger, slower-paced one, which magically manages to jell together. Now the bigger question is how Arkadium is going to lure in players. They've already run a sweepstakes drawing where they've given away $1,000 USD to a fan of the game's Facebook page who bothered to sign up. But with game still in beta, they're clearly not expecting the Facebook masses to come trampling out just yet.
