Edit 2/9/2012 – It figures. It just figures that they would change the Valentines 2012 event so significantly since I wrote my rant, that a lot of what I said is not true anymore. The 4x stove is NOW an Ultra (50%) stove, but as you can see from my screenshot, it wasn’t when they first released it. Maybe my rant got to them? I wish. 😛 Anyway, the link to Heart Boxes was added. It’s the same as what they used in the Gift Wrapper Goals. ~The FG
Wait. Didn’t they JUST release some goals this week? <rolls eyes> Well, whatever. This Valentine’s Day set is sure to shock and amaze you…
There’s many parts to the event itself, the the only help that I can provide is for the set of 5 goals. The Red and Gold hearts are “RSVP” type items. you know, the ones you can only ask for every so often? Used to be every 28 hours but these seem to be ever 4. Wierd. If I were you, I’d take advantage of that and send them every 4 hours. That is, if you’re interested in the crummy rewards the red hearts give you.
Some things you need to know:
- The 5th goal’s reward is 5 gold hearts.
- You can redo the 5-set of goals over and over, but amounts of items and dishes to serve increases during each pass. You get 5 more gold hearts at the end of each set.
- When you spend hearts on a decoration, it’s “unlocks” that item so you can purchase it unlimited times in the normal game store.
- You can only buy each stove once.
- You might get a 50% lovely stove in the box of chocolates. Try every 12 hours.
Some ranting and ravings after this:
Since I don’t have a list of goals, just pick the item you need from the list below.
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.

And now, my rantings.
There are various things you can buy with red hearts. If you’re into decorations, then this will be good for you. There’s things like stoves in there too. Even a 10% lightning stove that is guaranteed to clash with all your other stoves. As an aside, you can still build unlimited amounts of 10% stoves.. so unless you just like the look, I wouldn’t bother buying it with precious hearts.
It’s the gold hearts that buy the really good stuff. But without knowing how to get one, I can’t say whether they’re worth bothering with. I can tell you gold hearts are PRICEY, if you choose to buy them with Cafe Cash. One heart costs 100 Cafe Cash (which is roughly $15, depending on the package you’re able to buy).
To put this in perspective, let us look at probably the only 2 decent items in the whole Valentines “Store”: The Lovely 4x Lightning Stove (10%) and the Lovely 50% Lightning (Which should be called “Ultra”). There’s no indication that the 4x stove is a 50% stove, so I can only assume it’s 10% because of its “Lightning” name.
It’s likely that you’ll be able to naturally get 2 hearts to buy a Lovely 50% over the course of the event, but if you just HAD to have it, you’re looking at paying 200 CC for that sucker. If you buy the $50 package (350 CC), that’ll make this thing worth about $28. You can buy a normal 50% stove for as low as 120 CC, or ~ $17. Is a pink stove worth $11 more?
Now, the 4x stove.. oh Zynga, what have you done? Let’s say you have 1 gold heart from playing but you want to buy the other 15? You can use the package deal to only pay 1350 CC (450 x 3). The largest CC package is for 1250 CC, and it’s $150. Did I mention that the stove isn’t even a 50% stove? From every indication, it’s a simple 4x 10%. (Disclaimer: That’s true as of this writing. They might change it if people give them enough negative feedback.) I can’t… I can’t even finish the calculations.
All that just to say that it’s probably a better idea to repeat the sets of goals as many times as you can, because buying the stoves is a ridiculous idea.
