What would Halloween be without Trick or Treating?! Everyone loves the occasional trick or treat and FarmVille is getting in on all the fun with this year’s Trick or Treat event that is slowly rolling out to all farmers.
Remember last Halloween in FarmVille? You could play pranks on your neighbors farms by turning their animals into ghosts and putting cobwebs in their trees. It was fun for some farmers but to others it got old really quickly as you were left to clean up the mess on your farm. However, this year there are new incentives for you FarmVille tricksters- such as some exclusive FarmVille Limited Edition Halloween items like the Headless Horseman Gnome and the Candy Corn Hat Horse! Read our FarmVille Freak Trick or Treat Guide below for how everything works to get you on your way to trickery!
Tricks & How to get them
First, every farmer is given 10 free tricks to start off with, then it will be up to you to obtain more Tricks. The more tricks you do on your neighbors farms, the more prizes you can unlock.
- 1. Send and receive Tricks via the free Gifting Page
- 2. Find Tricks on your Facebook News Feed from neighbors’ shares

Here are some of the Prizes you can redeem for all your hard work tricking:
Trick or Treat Leaderboard
Similar to other collection events, there is a Leaderboard that shows you your progress as well as a comparison to your neighbors. In a new twist, the top trickster will be rewarded with Leaderboard prizes and depends on where you rank with your neighbors. According to Zynga, gifts will be rewarded at the end of the Trick or Treat event, “On 11/7, the top tricksters will be awarded an exclusive prize!” Pshhh…not sure if a lot of people will like this if it means that they will not be able to unlock that one very exclusive prize. Do you think it’s just a new way to hype the activity of FarmVille requests and participation or do you welcome the challenge? Let the competition begin!
