MAFIA WARS get your Gemelos NOW

Mafia Wars is doing a cross promotion with another Zynga game, Hidden Chronicles. Part of that cross promotion involves finding certain items in the other game to earn a Gemelos loot item in Mafia Wars. A workaround has been floating around the news feeds since early this afternoon shortly after the cross promo started. I wasn't going to post it, because Zynga tends to shut these things down once that happens, but it seems pretty much everyone has let the cat out of the bag at this point.

Some people are reporting it doesn't work for them, but it seems to be working for most and it worked for me, so hurry up and grab it while you can.

Click Link 1, wait and let screen load.
Click Link 2 , wait and let screen load.
=> check inventory, ´you received the promo item: GEMELOS (99,133, weapon)

MAFIA WARS new group sale Blade Blaster

There's yet another group sale in the Mafia Wars marketplace. This one is for the Blade Blaster, and Zynga is trying real hard to get you to buy it via a post in your news feed. Apparently players who bought the Blade Blaster can post to the news feed when it upgrades, I'm told by a mafia member. The only good thing about this is you get a few measly XP points. Better than nothing, I guess.

The prices have not improved on these items, however, so I will still be passing. Zynga needs to learn something about pricing, because good prices will hook me, but spam will not.

MAFIA WARS Dead Or Alive: Wanted Poster has unlocked

You probably can't help but notice this already, but in case you were temporarily residing under a Mafia Wars rock, the second item has unlocked for the Dead Or Alive gift mastery event.

Wanted Poster boosts provide +150 defense, and you can send them from the Free Gift page, or your Mafia Wars home page banner. Or, CLICK HERE to send them.

You can also generate a post asking for them, but unfortunately that only directs players to send free gifts, so it's not exactly a quick-help or unique post...and therefore will probably be considered spam by many.

 Get in there and start collecting Wanted Posters to earn your Gunslinger! our new game incentive awaits you

As if the regular propaganda at the top of the game screen in that nifty Z click bar of games was not enough advertising, now there's another pop-up that will appear within the game for you at some point.

This exciting new game offers you a chance to "earn" a Gemelos gun with stats of 99 Attack and 133 Defense.  Of course, all you have to do is "find" all the Mafia Wars Items.  Another banner at the bottom of the pop-up offers you a "Voracious Goldfish" with stats of 100 Attack and 140 Defense if you get to level 5 in Hidden Chronicles.

Odds are, the two combined might make you at least click into the game...whether you are willing to stay 5 levels, remains to be seen.

MAFIA WARS free Bearded Dragon in Mafia Wars requests

In conjunction with the Sea Of Red sale that just started in Mafia Wars, and presumably in honor of the upcoming Chinese New Year, you can get a FREE Bearded Dragon, which has 157 attack and 92 defense, as was posted on our Facebook fan page several hours ago.

Mafia Wars has awakened its inner dragon while you were away. Now that you're back, it's time to celebrate the Chinese New Year with the Sea of Red Sale! And that's not all you can do

Discover New Secret Districts!
Win the Stranger's Swag!
Build New Properties!
Join the Mafia Wars celebrations this Chinese New Year!
I couldn't help but notice the wording on this pop-up about "Discover new secret districts". They acted as though they intentionally released the Secret District The Slammer last night and pulled it after some consideration, but this makes me believe it was a mistake on their part to release The Slammer, and that it was intended to happen during this Sea Of Red sale all along. 

To get yours, go to your Facebook Games & Apps page and look for your Mafia Wars requests. Underneath the first few Mafia Wars requests you can click to see all Mafia Wars requests--do that.

Type Ctrl-F and a search box should open at the bottom or top of your browser. Type "Dragon", and your browser should find and highlight the item for you.

Enjoy, and spread the word! To share this post with your friends on Facebook, simply use the Share button immediately below this post.

MAFIA WARS Sea Of Red sale, "earn" a Celestial Dragon

The Sea Of Red sale that we first saw mentioned last night in Mafia Wars in now in full swing. You can find it, as usual, on your Mafia Wars home page banner and in the Marketplace. It's pretty much the same as previous sales.
Purchase any 15 items* to get a Celestial Dragon.
RP purchases are 60% off TODAY!
Go to Marketplace
* Loyalty Program, Fight Club, Pawnshop, Treasure Chest keys, Skill Point Reallocation and items selling for less than 5RP do not qualify for prize.
As with previous similar sales, there's 60% off of reward points being offered today.

If you buy 15 items during this sale, you will receive the Celestial Dragon loot item. Loyalty program items, fight club, pawn shop, treasure chest keys, skill point reallocation, and items costing less than 5 reward points will not count. Although I hope they DO offer skill point reallocation a little more often. The main reason I care anything for these sales is that skill point reallocation is offered, and other things like stamina refills go on sale more often, sometimes at decent deals.

Grab these deals and paint the town red!
Buy any 15 items* to get a Celestial Dragon.

The year of the dragon rears its head, bringing you it's sound and fury. Make the most of this incredible offer and you could win a Celestial Dragon. The event ends on January 24th at 11:59PM PST.

Keep track of your progress via the progress bar visible at the top of the Marketplace.

MAFIA WARS Secret District The Slammer To Return At Later Date

From the Zynga customer support page:
Missing Secret District
Updated 01/20/2012 at 05:06
For a brief time earlier this evening we released the next Secret District, but due to player feedback regarding our recent event schedule, this district will not be made active until Monday, January 23rd, 2012.

We apologize for any confusion that this may have caused, but we felt the timing of the event would be better suited for our players at a later date.

Many players have expressed concern over the progress that they have already made on this Secret District, but don't worry all progress made by players has been saved and will be there when it releases again on Monday.

Because this was an intentional removal of the feature and all progress will be saved and restored at the next release there is not a reason to submit an incident or contact Customer Support as they will not be able to make any changes or credits to your account.

Thank you again for your feedback!

MAFIA WARS Sea Of Red Sale coming soon

This just appeared in my game, it seems we will have another "sale" in Mafia Wars soon.

I hope this is another one of the buy 15 items for a loot item deals, as they often put other items on sale too, including reward points and stamina refills, and more appearances of skill point reallocation. Hopefully the new loot that was just added isn't necessarily for this sale and will be for something cool.

MAFIA WARS special event loot added 1/19

Some new loot items just popped up in the Mafia Wars inventory. These were just added within the past 90 minutes, and are listed as being from a "special event". I guess The Slammer secret district wasn't special enough? I'm guessing whatever these items are for, they likely have something to do with the upcoming Chinese New Year, and we will see them in Mafia Wars very soon. Just a guess.

Red Envelope Bomb (A:96 D:161) from Special Event
Lantern Fireball (A:160 D:98) from Special Event
Cycle Rickshaw (A:97 D:161) from Special Event
Dragon Float (A:161 D:96) from Special Event
Celestial Dragon (A:182 D:111) from Special Event
