A few weeks ago, I’d been asked to beta test the new levels for the popular Zynga Mafia Wars game. Mafia Wars is arguably the most popular and successful of the social media games developed by the recently Venture Capital funded company Zynga. To date, the 1.5 year old, profitable, VC backed Zynga has raised 39 Million dollars in funding. As Mafia Wars is widely popular, there is bound to be great interest in this new Zynga release.
The story starts as I was about to crash for the night and made the mistake of turning on a computer screen. Imagine my surprise when I noticed a “Fly to Cuba” button on the top of my Facebook Mafia Wars page. In this beta release, there are new jobs hidden till you complete the next level and there are loads of new help topics and weapon descriptions and loot items revealed. I’ve made certain to record as much as I can tonight and you can look forward to finding more information in The Code Cave about this new Mafia Wars module.
Send me 1 item on my wish list and put a message on my wall asking for any two items from this list and I’ll send them back to you. Make sure to provide a link to your profile or your profile name or I’ll not be able to find you. First Come: First Serve. So you might want to have a backup choice or two. I’ll adjust this page as I run out of stuff.
After less than 2 months of playing, I am a Level 160 Boss Mogul with master on every level up to underboss. I have 11 out of 14 achievements. I currently earn 111mil every 51 minutes. I’ve been leveling up 3 to 4 times every day, though I might hit 5 levels today. With >1000 mafia members, I’m really raking in the experience points just by other ppl using me in fights. So I should reach the max bagman bonus for you pretty quickly.
