Bake and Rise Limited Time Beg and Build Event 3/16

Poisoned Lava Cake, weapon, bronze tier [171/129]

Click the little "Ask" button to post a beg to the news feed to get some parts!

We can collect up to 45 parts per day, if I have the Zynga math correct.

Slitter, consumable part

On this build we have a choice of more health or more stamina from our builds. I will probably go for the stamina side this time. We don't get the skill point bonus until we hit Ruby, so collect up those parts!

Baker's Den, vehicle [varies]
Poisoned Lava Cake, weapon [varies]

New Secret District: Barbershop Quartet 3/15

Just like on the Round and Round Secret District this banner says we can do this again if we complete it "before 3/26/2013 11:59 PM PDT and get a chance to reset your progression and master this Secret District again"

Just like then, I am going to suggest remaining in the Bronze tier when completing the collection.

Cutting Edge Sale Event 3/14

This type of Sale Event usually has one of those 7 Day Sale Events to go along with it, so don't be surprised if suddenly there is another added event, just like during the Blaze Of Glory Sale Event and the No Strings Attached 7 Day Sale event 

The loot item levels up for every 5 items you purchase.

Why we do this: Reef Octopus, animal [varies]

Small print says: " *Offer ends on 18th March at 11:59 PM PDT. Only Items selling in the Marketplace are eligible for this reward. However, Items selling for less than 5RP, Treasure Chest Items, and Skill Point Reallocation do not count towards the prize."

On Your Mark Secret District (again) 3/14

Back in August of 2012, right after the Olympic Games opened, we got this Secret District for the first time.
Here is the complete explanation of this district: On Your Mark Secret District
Complete, with Boss Fight Combos and everything!

This time around, it will cost 27 Reward Points to play through:

Since Zynga has seen fit to begin several new items today, this one it not that high on my list, but I may come back to it for the possibility of more skill points.

Arena Happy Hour #5 8-11 AM Pacific Time 3/14

Arena Happy Hour 8-11 AM Pacific Time

Get Max XP to Stamina Ratio irrespective of your position!

En Route Moscow Operation Event 3/14

This new Operation event will help with the Fence Master Event: More Mafia Chores by at least making some operations more attractive to players.

Clicking the cute little question mark pops this up:

To collect the Gold tier Florida Panther, we must complete these operations to Gold tier also. Remember to keep your eye on that Russian Flag!

Please pay attention to the amount of Energy or Stamina that you have available before clicking on to someone else's operation. You'll want to be able to complete in a timely manner. Many players want everyone to complete within a few minutes of joining. If you will be unable to complete your part of an operation, you may want to let the owner of the operation know that so they can remove you and let someone else complete that portion. If any one part is not completed, everyone loses that work they put in to complete.

Fence Master Event: Even More Mafia Chores! 3/11

Book Keeper, henchmen, Gold level [225/175]
Global Fence Leader Reward

What I think happened: Zynga gave us a little Survey to ask us what we liked in the game the most.

Then Zynga announced: The Daily Fix: More Mafia Chores because apparently our favorite thing we do each day is all the assignments. The daily 150 Ices for Family Progression. The property, job and  helper things we do each day. I thought we had just about the right amount of chores to do. 

So here we are in mid-March with another Mafia Chores Event. Okay let's see what we have.

There are two possible loot items to collect from this event. The first is the Pygmy Raccoon, animal [150/221] for the Family Fence Board Leader

The second item is the Book Keeper, henchmen [225/175] for the Global Fence Leader. 

And here are our newest "tasks" and chores:

I'm not sure if the numbers to the right are a points scale for each task or some other thing, like how many times we should do this task or how many days we have done this task. As usual, Zynga cannot explain anything worth a hill of beans. These numbers (on the right hand column) do not change, so I am assuming they are points this task is worth.

This is what the task board looks like as you get some tasks done:

Many of these tasks do not show any progression, so I do not know how Zynga is deciding whether we did enough of those tasks.
The only one of these tasks that really surprised me was second to last, "Add members to Mafia" because, any Chimpanzee can tell you, Mafia Wars Daily Average Users are down. For this one, you *can* remove a member from your mafia and add them back.
