CityVille Sam's Love Story: Everything you need to know

Sam, the mascot of CityVille, is looking for a bit of romance this Valentine's Day, and you can help her achieve that goal through a series of new goals that have launched in the game. This Sam's Love Story event is split into three separate sections, or Acts, with each Act being dedicated to a different man that Sam will date. The first is an artist, the second an adventurer, and the third is the classic, hopeless romantic.

Each section of the event is split into three goals, so there are nine to complete in all. The first section, dealing with the artist, brings Enrique Iglesias back to the game, as he apparently wants to date Sam.

Enrique Iglesias!

  • Complete Culture House

  • Upgrade Natural History Museum to Level 2

  • Collect 25 Dance Lessons

You'll have a chance of randomly receiving Dance Lessons when collecting from your Dance Studio. Meanwhile, the Culture House takes 10 energy to build and then requires you to collect several building ingredients to finish it off:

  • 8 Gold Paint

  • 8 Gold Statue

  • 8 Boxes of Nails

  • 8 Floor Tiles

  • 8 Gold Roof Tiles

These items are earned through a combination of general news posts on your wall and individual requests sent to friends. For finishing this goal, you'll receive the automatic update to the Level 2 Cultural House. This building offers 1,000 population to your town, so you'll want to take the time to build if it land space is an issue in your game.

Working for Romance

The Popcorn Buckets come from collecting from the Cinema, or you can also ask your friends to receive them. Finishing this final goal ends Sam's time with Mr. Traditional, and it also rewards you with the upgrade to the Level 4 Ice Skating Rink.

Since this is a fairly far-reaching event in the game, I'd suspect that we might see some smaller Valentine's Day content release in the game as well (perhaps some themed content in the store). If that ends up being the case, we'll make sure to let you know.
