If you were wondering why Zynga kept advertising that the Autumn Collection would soon be leaving FarmVille (there are only two hours left to complete that collection, if you have yet to do so), we have the answer tonight as Zynga has released a limited time Snow Collection in the game.
This Snow Collection asks you to collect six items, ranging in rarity from Common to Rare, and requiring different quantities of each item, depending on the rarity. Here's a list of what you'll need to find, and in what amounts.
Icicle - Common - 10 Needed
Snowball - Common - 10 Needed
Snowflake - Common - 10 Needed
Coal Lump - Uncommon - 7 Needed
Wool Scarf - Uncommon - 7 Needed
Mitten - Rare - 3 Needed
As usual, you'll be able to collect these items automatically, but randomly, while planting seeds on your farm. You can also hope that your FarmVille friends come upon a "stash" of these ingredients while planting on their own farms, which they can then share via wall posts that you can click on to earn a free item.
The reward for collecting all six items is a cute, and animated, Cow Snow Globe. Remember, this collection won't be available to complete forever, so start planting some seeds now to make sure you collect all of the available items before it's too late.
What do you think about the prize for this new Snow Collection? Are you ready to celebrate the holidays in FarmVille? Let us know in the comments.
