For the past week, we've known that a Fun House would soon be coming to FarmVille, and we've been speculating for some time as to what the item would actually do.
Tonight we find that out, as the frame for the Fun House is now available to purchase from the store. Meet us behind the break for a full look at how you can make your own Fun House on your farm.
The Fun House frame can be purchased from the store's Buildings tab for 5,000 coins. The base is quite large, so you might have to move some things.
From there, you'll be able to build the Fun House by collecting the three major building ingredients: 18 each of Wooden Boards, Nails, and Bricks. To be clear, if you click on the "What is this?" button on the Fun House in the market, you are told that the building only requires 10 of each item, but as we can clearly see below, the requirement is 18.
You'll start out with just one ingredient as a boost to get you going, and can then click on the "Ask for More" button associated with each item to be sent to a reverse of the game's free gifts page, where you can send a request to your individual FarmVille friends, in the hopes that they will answer your call for help and send you the item you need. Remember, this only allows you to send requests to those who have that particular ingredient available to send in the first place, so don't worry about not getting what you want.
As usual, if at any time you'd like to stop waiting for your friends to send you items, you can purchase the rest of the required ingredients for 1 Farm Cash each. That's 53 Farm Cash in all, if you chose to only go that route.
Once completed, the Fun House will add a ...unique decorative touch to your farm, but as of this writing, it unfortunately doesn't serve any other purpose rather than being a decoration.
All told, with the recent release of the Turkey Roost, and the release of Orchards, many users already had one or two items on their "To-Build" lists. With the Fun House only making that list longer, it's not surprising why some users are already lashing out at Zynga for making a building that requires so many ingredients, yet serves no purpose.
Either way, if you're the type that simply can't let a building pass you by unfinished, or perhaps you simply really like the look of the completed building, you'll want to make sure to start building the Fun House now, as it will only be available until the end of the game's Country Fair celebration - just 17 days.
With the FarmVille Fun House already causing a bit of a controversy among users, we'd love to hear your opinions on the item. Will you take the time to build the Fun House, or will you save your building ingredients for the Turkey Roost or extra Orchards? Share your thoughts in the comments!
