As part of FarmVille's Valentine's Day celebration, a new countdown of daily prizes has been launched in the game. This "Valentines Countdown" works as you might expect, asking you to post requests for items that your friends can send you (these requests can be posted once every six hours, if you need to post multiple times to get the job done). You'll need more collectibles for each day of the 12-day countdown, and once you've earned enough of an individual collectible, you'll receive that day's prize.
For instance, the first day of this Valentines Countdown asks you to collect Jelly Hearts, and by doing so, you'll receive the Flamingo Heart item as the first prize in this Countdown. For the record, the Flamingo Heart is actually a set of two Flamingos, whose necks and heads form the shape of a heart (can we say "Aww?").
If you'd like to purchase additional units of any of the prizes, you can do so with Farm Cash, and you can also unlock new slots in the Countdown for Farm Cash, if you don't want to wait until the clock strikes 12 on a new day to ask for items normally. If you can collect at least one of all 12 of the Countdown's prizes (either with your friends' help, or by purchasing them outright), you'll receive a special prize at the end of the event. If you can't wait for that prize either, you can purchase it now for 260 Farm Cash (although, let's face it, that 260 Farm Cash would be much better spent on other things).
We'll make sure to let you know just as soon as we learn more about the individual prizes that will be available via this Valentines Countdown, so keep checking back with us for more.
