All new in February

Hamburg, 22 February 2012 - Mail.Ru Games, publisher of internationally successful online games War of Dragons, Allods Online, Juggernaut and Gunblade Saga is launching the first major update for the online social game Farm Kingdom. Now, players can compete against each other in two new exciting mini-games - “Mushrooms” and "Quabble".

If you go into the woods today…

If you want to relax from your daily toil you can take a trip to the nearby forest. Here Farmers get a chance not only to enjoy the beauty of nature, but also to collect a woodland delicacy: Mushrooms. Hidden off the beaten track, under trees and bushes, Chanterelles, Russulas, and many others are waiting to be collected. It is a matter of chance whether you need to collect certain fungi in a certain period of time, or specific fungi in a given sequence.

"Quabble" - the dice must roll!

In addition to having great fun picking mushrooms, there is now another way to pass the time until your next harvest: Those who leave their house and farm to make a trip to the new marketplace will find a large colourful tent in the city. Here you will encounter a very different kind of diversion: At the gaming table a Farmer can challenge the computer or other players to a game of “Quabble”. The aim of this dice game is to inflict as much damage on the opponent as possible and force them to their knees. To do this, it is necessary to get the highest value using the six sides of the dice. Swords inflict damage, hearts restore life points and the four elements can be collected and used to cast powerful spells!

Weekly competitions and ratings for all occupations

So far, only diligent anglers have participated in a weekly competition. Whoever topped the rankings for a week could expect a very generous reward. Now self-proclaimed master chefs, mining kings, and the best "Quabble" strategists and tacticians, as well as the fastest mushroom collectors, can compete against each other. Whoever wants to see their name on the leaderboard should start right away!
