Walk into most major department stores over the next few weeks, and you'll be hit in the face with an overdose of pink, purple and red, well... everything. That can only mean one thing - Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, and whether you're currently single or not, Pioneer Trail has also gotten into the festivities early with a new feature called Tunnel of Love.
The Tunnel of Love features a set of goals that will be released on a once-per-day basis. There are 12 goals to complete in all, with four goals being split into three different groups. Along the way, you'll have access to 10 new decorations, either as rewards for completing these goals or as general purchase items in the market, and these goals can only be completed once. Of course, before you can actually send folks on your Homestead through the Tunnel of Love, you'll need to build it first.
Building the Tunnel of Love requires 10 each of Swan Feathers, Romance, and Sugar and Spice. These are earned through general news posts placed on your wall. You'll also need 15 each of River Water, Cutout Characters and Sappy Music, all of which can be earned through individual requests sent to friends. Once that's done, you can help your Homestead fall in love this season. Here's a complete guide to these 13 goals (the first is an overarching goal for the entire event) and the rewards you'll receive for completing them.
