Gobble, Gobble! Get Stuffed in Island Paradise

Turkey Day is around the corner and Island Paradise is celebrating with a brand new mini game and a gaggle of novel holiday-themed content. Score big in the Get Stuffed! mini game and win exclusive prizes including the Wampanoag Log House, Thanksgiving campfire and a Mayflower for your very own island. Play all day, every day for the chance to win an exclusive new turkey oven, which generates bulk recipes for the items used most during cooking. This will come in handy and give you a leg up when you compete in the first-annual Cranberry Sauce Cook-Off, which runs from Wednesday, November 23 – Friday, November 25.

Also appearing this holiday season is the Thanksgiving coconut tree, which produces orange coconuts for delicious new recipes; a decked out themed cabin; and a very cool crepe turkey, among other things. And, what would Thanksgiving be without your very own hand turkey?!?  Now, while you are gathering your pilgrim outfit in the Island Shop, you can pick one up to keep as your very own virtual pet.

While you are getting decked out for the holiday, you’ll want to check out the brand new flower system, which allows you to plant new harvestable flowers to create special bouquets. Among the lovely options available now are the Thanksgiving-themed bouquet, trellis and special ceramic pots.

About Island Paradise

Island Paradise is the debut social game experience from Meteor Games, an independent social games studio founded in 2007 by Adam and Donna Powell, the creators of Neopets, the virtual pet experience that took the world by storm.

Named one of the most significant social games by Inside Social Games, Island Paradise allows players to create their own tropical island on Facebook, tend crops, plant trees and raise animals.  As players gain levels they unlock more things to do and more items to send their friends.  Players can also visit other islands to steal untended crops and find items to help them level up faster. The game recently celebrated its second birthday and boasts more than 20 million game installs.
