What Facebook is Playing This Week: Farm for the Holidays

Illustration for article titled What Facebook is Playing This Week: Farm for the Holidays

Twas the day before Christmas and all through the house, these are the games that are keeping parents from cooking and wrapping presents and the children from stumbling over internet porn.

I was pretty sure we all agreed to stop playing FarmVille 2. I let my crops wither, stopped working on my seasonal quests. Now everyone else's farms look like shining holiday wonderlands and mine looks like death. I suppose I could have visited a neighbor's farm to grab a more festive screenshot, but that would start me clicking on things and my failure would be complete.

I do not wish my failure to be complete. I have plenty more failing to do in Candy Crush Saga.

I imagine you are aware, but they extended how long it takes before crops wither in FV2. I think it takes 3 days now, that's plenty of time if you want to keep your farm time casual. Also, they came up with a tree that gets decorated as you complete quests, anyone who didn't do it, won't have it or it will look plain (not to worry, the plain tree is free, but the quests seem to be time sensitive). Another thing they changed since you left your farm was that prized animals finally produce stuff. Different stuff, but at least you don't feel like they are wasting space. Also, if yours look like death, it's only because you still have the Halloween stuff. Withered crops are an easy fix. The snowy look, I don't know if it comes no matter what or you have to complete the thermometer quests for it to happen. My only complaint is that since I have as many plots as you, it's hard to complete quests that require trees and animals since space for those is very limited. I've pretty much put away any ornaments that I've won from quests to keep the farm clean.
