Pioneer Trail Rekindling the Flame: Everything you need to know

With the launch of Pioneer Trail (then FrontierVille) on Facebook, one of the first tasks we were asked to complete was creating a home for our spouse so that they could join us out on the wild frontier. Now, it's time to rekindle the spark between your in-game character and spouse, via a 10-part goal series called Rekindling the Flame.

When this feature launches in your game, you'll receive a letter from Jack that triggers the launch of this event. You'll have access to 10 different goals, each of which are repeatable, with two major prizes being rewarded for finishing these goals in bulk along the way. That is, if you finish goals 1-5, you'll receive a Player Piano item, and if you finish goals 6-10, you'll receive a Romantic Pony. After receiving this letter from Jack, you can then click on your in-game Cabin or Ponderosa Lodge to access these goals from then on in.
