The French Quarter is quite substantial in size, so keep that in mind. It costs 25 Farm Cash to add to your farm, and you'll gain 2500 experience points for purchasing it. The building has no function, but simply looking at this intricately designed and colorful building seems to be enough.
Meet us behind the break for a look at the other items released this evening. As for the decorations, again, some of these are new and some were released last year. Both of the new items are Farm Cash only, with a Carnival Float being available for 12 Farm Cash, and a Mask Fountain costing 15 Farm Cash. Personally, the Mask Fountain is the much more interesting item here, regardless of its slightly higher price tag, as it animates with flying confetti and of course water pouring out of the fountain's top and sides. You'll gain 1500 experience points for purchasing the Mask Fountain, and only 120 for buying the Carnival Float.
Finally, the two re-released items are the Carnival Mask I and Carnival Mask II. Both of these items are available for coins, and come in the form of masks perched on sticks. Both cost 2,200 coins, will reward you with 22 experience points for purchasing, and can be sold for 110 coins in return. Luckily, these are the exact same stats as when they were first available in the game, so no need to feel bitter about a price hike here (as has been the case in the past).
Remember, the Fairy Tale theme that had taken up residence in the game over the past few weeks has officially ended, so if you're looking to spend coins and Farm Cash on some new decorations in the game, you can either pick over what's still available in the store (a selection that is lessening quickly as things expire), or you can jump into the Mardi Gras spirit and pick up items in this new theme, which will be available for the next two weeks.
Which of these items is your favorite? Do you have any of the Carnival Masks from last year, that you're pulling out of storage for this year's celebration, or are all of these items new to you? Let us know in the comments.
