CastleVille 'A Gift That Keeps on Giving' Quests: Everything you need to know

Alistair's birthday is quickly approaching in CastleVille, and Yvette has a plan to surprise him with a new Magic Library that can store all of his spell books. This Magic Library is available through the "A Gift That Keeps on Giving" quest line, and we're here with a complete guide to finishing these quests, thanks to Zynga. Let's get started!

By the Book

  • Place the Foundation for the Magic Library

  • Clear 3 Grass

The Magic Library has a huge base, so you might need to rearrange some items before being able to fit it into your Kingdom. When you complete this first quest, you'll receive 2,000 coins and 40 XP.

Administration Frustrations

  • Have 3 Rubber Stamps

  • Have 1 Fountain Pen

  • Have 1 Engraves Stationary

The Rubber Stamps are earned by posting a general request to your news feed for help, while the Fountain Pen can be created inside the Workshop using five Muse Whispers, three Copper Trinkets, two Wood Planks, and four Berries. Those "Muse Whisper" items are earned by asking your friends to send them to you. Finally, the Engraved Stationary can be created inside the Studio using two Linen Fiber, three Yellow Feathers, two Wool, and two Flaxseed Oil. Finishing this quest gives you another 2,000 coins and 40 XP.

Book by Book

  • Complete the Magic Library

  • Have 5 Crafted Glass

  • Have 5 Rope

The Magic Library requires two Bronze Bars, three Gold Bricks, five Mortars, and two Steel Bars to build. You'll also need to ask seven friends to come work as staff within the building to actually finish it off. As for the Crafted Glass, this item requires Sand and Wood to craft, while Rope is made using five Flax per rope. You'll receive 2,500 coins and 50 XP when you complete this quest.

In Plain Sight

  • ​Have 6 Siren Music Boxes

  • Water Saplings 3 Times

  • Craft 5 Wood Planks

The Siren Music Boxes are earned by posting a general request onto your news feed. You'll earn 2,000 coins and 40 XP for finishing this quest.

Throw the Book at 'Em!

  • ​Banish 3 Gloom Thieves

  • Craft 5 Steel Swords

  • Feed 5 Animals

The Gloom Thieves can be summoned using Potions if you don't have some already in your Kingdom. As for the Steel Swords, these are made inside the Workshop using Steel Bars, Tongs, and Alchemist's Powders. Each one deals seven damage to a single Beastie when activated. You'll receive another 2,500 coins and 50 XP when you finish this quest.

A Birthday Banquet

  • ​Harvest 6 Carrots

  • Craft 1 Pumpkin Filling

  • Craft 2 Fairy Cakes

The Pumpkin Filling is made using Pumpkins, Milk, and Cloves, while the Fairy Cakes are made using items like Flour, Sugar, and Eggs. You'll receive 3,250 coins and 65 XP for finishing this quest.

Off the Shelf

  • Have a Completed Magic Library

  • Craft 5 Bottles of Champagne

  • Get 5 Red Feathers

Again, you'll need seven people to come work as crew members within the Magic Library to actually complete the item and finish this task. Meanwhile, the Bottles of Champagne are made inside the Kitchen using six Grapes, eight Pails of Water, five Glass Bottles, and two Sugar per batch. The Bottles can be earned by posting a general request to your news feed.

When you finish this final quest, you'll receive 3,250 coins, 65 XP, and a purple Magical Tree that can be placed in your Kingdom. Good luck completing all of these quests in your own game!
