7-11-2012 – This set has been updated to the new system. It does not need a Friend’s ID to work. ~The FG

ADDED Fabric for chairs, HAMMERS AND NAILS FOR THE RED TENT. ~The FG

I’m so glad Cafe-World hasn’t added any clowns to this new Carnival event. I hate clowns, and honestly… I get my daily quota of clowns just from having to deal with Zynga’s customer service.

Yeah, there’s 51 goal items in this post, and a builder or two.. Who’s got two thumbs and stayed up all night? *points thumbs to self* This girl.

This new event must be the event that they’re going to use to fill in the space between St Paddy’s and Easter.  I could have used a break, especially since there’s still the timed Buck’s Spring 4x Stoves goals as well as St Paddy’s goals to do for many people.   This new event looks complicated, complicated, complicated, but I can’t tell yet if it’s worth the effort. A lot of the big big rewards are Ultra stoves (1×50%) which are pretty much worthless to me. Actually, for me, any reward that is less that 4x Ultra (4×50%) is not worth doing.

Overall, it seems like this event is a incredibly complicated but the rewards are.. meh.

Anyway. There’s a mini-guide below the Goal Items, if you care to read it.

Here’s the links to the Parts Gifters. You use these if your normal way of asking for parts isn’t working.

I couldn’t get very far into the goals unfortunately. None of my friends seem to be awake at 2AM to help me through that terrible “Make Cotton Candy” thing.  I’ll post them later if I can get them.

Check the comments below as well as The Facegamer forums for help. There’s a lot of great people in both areas that contribute additional information, and if you’re one of those people… I really appreciate you. Bookmark this page so you can come back whenever you need to.

Each page has 14 links on it, but you will probably not need that many. And if you need more than that, then just refresh the individual page and the timestamps will refresh.

To discuss this and other things Cafe World, please visit the new “The Facegamer” forums: Cafe World Discussions

There is no official guide at this time, so all we can really go by is observation and conjecture. Here’s what I can work out:

  • There will be two sets of goals, Blue Carnival Tent and Red Carnival Tent. (Only Blue Carnival Tent is out at the time of this writing)
  • Each set will contain 15 (ouch) goals, and will reward 1 ugly circular 4×50% stove at the very end
  • In order to finish the goals, you will have to complete certain steps of the “Make Cotton Candy” idiocy.
  • You will have to ask for strength (post and ask-for request) in order to  have a crack at the 50% stove at the top of the strongman meter. It isn’t clear as to whether the stove is 4x or not. The picture “looks” like a 4x, but I’ve seen some 1x stoves with that pattern too.
  • It is unclear as to how much strength you will need to get that Strongman stove, making it hard to judge the difficulty of that portion of the event.
  • You will need to build the Blue Carnival tent. You can get to the builder for it by following this link.
  • You can find the Red Carnival Tent Parts gifter by following this link.
  • Once you build the tent, you will have access to minigames. (games within games? *mind explodes*)
  • The first mini game is a memory card match.  Your reward depends on how few sets of flips you do. I am not good at it, so I generally land in the “9 flips” range, which lands me a free quest item. Whooptie freaking do. Like I need that. I did get 10 flips once and it gave me a single serving of something I needed for a goal. My excitement. I can’t even describe how excited this makes me.  Why am I still playing this stupid game?
  • Every time you play a mini game, you get a “play”. When you rack up 200 plays, you get another ugly round 4x ultra  stove (4×50%). Hey, at least it’s useful, even if it’s an eyesore.
  • To play the mini games, you must collect tickets, which you can ask for via post every 12 hours (yeah, 12) or buy them.

  1. I have the red tent in my cafe world. everything the same what you said in your letter. thought you would like to know. Margaret

  2. I say it again, you are awesome! Oh, and love the sarcasm of the excitement…lol. Thank goodness I’ll be done with the stoves today.

  3. HINT—If you are using a windows computer (not mac) after you insert the ID number into the right spot in the address… Hit Enter…then…hit F5 the required amount of times needed. I usually let the page begin to load before I hit F5 each time. This works and you do not have to open all those windows! Try it and see!

    • Thanks Diane….sounds alot easier…..

    • Hi Diane,
      It worked for me, but I can’t close the tab that I was clicking F5 on. Gave me the required amount of items, but I can’t close it now.
      Any suggestions?

      • Gee I am sorry because that has never happened to me! Maybe right click on the tab and hit close? If anyone else could help??

      • avatar

        if you have the right number of items click enter then click play it will put you back to cw….if you need more just close the window click the X on the last window this will bring you back to the items you are getting

    • THANK YOU SO MUCH, DIANE!!!! It worked incredibly easily. ;)

    • That’s how I do it too! Definitely works!

    • Wow! That is awesome! Worked for google chrome =) With a one year old it takes me forever to get things collected. Maybe I’ll get some things caught up now, Thank you!!!!

    • I don’t use F5, I use the reload icon (looks like an arrow going in a circle). That works too, and much easier than opening extra windows.

    • THANKS DIANE! I NEED TO TRY THAT.

    • avatar

      You can also just hit reload/refresh page. Does the same thing.

    • avatar

      Thanks for the Great tip Diane
      it works :D

    • Thnaks so much. Using the F5 key works great and is much easier! :)

    • OMG – thank you SO much for this tip – it is AMAZING and is saving me so much time as I work multiple cafes for friends – THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Oh and THANK YOU for all that you do Facegamer!!! You ROCK!

  5. I did 7 flips on the mini game and it landed me the 4x Ultra Stove that you get when you play 200 times

    • avatar

      then i must supose that 500 cafe cash are for only use 6 flips, minimun to get it, but the posibilities are extremelly low

    • avatar

      I got the 7 flips also, showed I won the stove, but guess what!! no stove in my inventory :( I sent an email to CS, we’ll see what happens…….

      • avatar

        I got that twice. I was to get two stove. and din’t and I did it 6 flips and no cafe cash without screen shots they won’t do a thing

    • avatar

      Said I just won the stove too…………but nope not in my inventory.

  6. lol, i love your take on the tent quest. i laughed reading what you wrote. thank you so much for all of your hard work and help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I love your sarcasm. I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing when I saw it pop up at about 2 am myself. I was hoping for a break to catch up… I had just finished the stoves and was thinking woo hoo no more timed goals for a while… then this popped up… Nice to know I wasnt the only one up at 2 am grumbling at zinga for the lousy timing of this… Thank you for all your help always

  8. hi friends is any gids for cotton candy stages??

  9. THANK YOU, FACEGAMER, FOR E-VE-RY-THING!! Your wonderful site helped me to complete the BUCK SPRING 5 4x-STOVES!! Yaaaaaayyyyy!!!! :-D

    SN: I was tickled pink with the “Thumbs up pointing to yourself” comment… ;)

  10. THANK YOU for your help in posting all this stuff! I can’t believe we have ANOTHER timed goal! I JUST finished the stupid winterfest crap. Not even close to finishing paris or irish. But at least your hard work here at facegamer makes it go a BIT faster!

  11. avatar

    Very cool what you do – very cool in deed.
    Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Interesting, I just checked again, and the reward for the strength meter thing has been changed. It no longer looks like a 4x stove and says you get 3 50% carnival stoves instead. No longer worth the effort in my opinion, I already have a dozen 50% stoves in my inventory.

  13. avatar

    Note – you have 2 cotton candy’s above. One worked, one did not for me. If one fails, try the other.

  14. Unless they unlock more stove spots, the rewards are really not worth it. I will do what I can for the meals.

    • I agree. I have all 4 burner stoves and all but 3 are 50%. I also have over 30 single 50
      % stoves in store. None is any use. We need to campaign for more slots :)

      • Then I am afraid that they will just increase the amount of food you must cook and the time. Most of the new recipes are way over timed, example; a chocolate cupcake taking 1 day, jalapeno poppers that take 22 hours, even over timed with the 50% off and 60% with the table. Too bad they do not take in consideration those that are not below level 400, many are still cooking on single 50% and 10% stoves.

      • You’re right of course. When I first started about a year ago, there were only a couple of two day dishes – pot roast and impossible quiche as well as the chinese candy and dino eggs, which no one ever dreamed of cooking. Now look at it.

  15. avatar

    when will “Make Cotton Candy” items be available?. Thanks

  16. If you can play the memory game 200 times at three(3) tickets each (only a mere 600 ticket requests…LOL) you can get one of those 4Xultra stoves, I think your odds of getting the stove via 200 game play is much better than matching all six pair in only seven flips. Who knows, maybe in those 200 plays you’ll get lucky.

  17. Thank you J for all your hard work & long hours. You are the one reason I still play CW. Finally got off my ass and sent a donation, probably only a fraction of what I would have spent on cafe cash without you.

    Whether $5 or 500, EVERYBODY that can needs to get off their collective asses and show you their appreciation & support. for your effort. (hint hint).

    Does anyone know how to unlock the jalapeno poppers needed for the Fred’s Chance II catering order?

    • the jalapeno poppers open up when you do the 15 part quest,right after you finish part 5 of it.

  19. I thought that the gift shop for the Irish goals was suppose to be in the Market. can anyone tell me where in thw Market?

    • You have to get out the pot of gold. It’s under special items in the functions bit

      • avatar

        THANK you both – for asking the question and for answering the question. I was wondering how I was going to cash in on the gold clovers now that I’m so close to completing the quests. I am so grateful for all who participate in this blog!

  20. Anyone know the cook times of the poppers and pig for Fred’s Catering Part II? Thanks!
