TailTowns Friends, Your New Facebook outlet + #Giveaway

Are you a social gamer on Facebook?

Come on, admit it. I know most of my friends escape to Farmville, Bejeweled or had mafia ties by all the requests and wall updates I read. So, if you have found yourself playing your day away, you are in good company.

Facebook gaming is the largest growing genre in the last several years*. Would you be shocked to hear that half of all Facebook logins are to play games?** And the majority of these social gamers are women? It makes sense to me. The majority of my friends online playing these kind of games are female.

So what does TailTowns Friends have to offer? Well, Ganz, the makers of Webkinz, wants to bring a little bit of soap opera drama, mystery and an escape to it's players. Now, isn't that why we all play? This free-to-play Facebook game incorporates photo-realistic graphics, juicy storylines and the ability to customize your own perfect country get away.

I have to say there is so much going on in this game! Depending on your own personal preferences there is something for everyone. I still have only scratched the surface and have many more options to explore. I think my gaming mood changes when I am online. Some nights I am up for the make-believe drama and other nights I want to amass, collect and work. Finally a game that can keep me engaged through all my changing moods.
Tail TownsFriends™ enchanted world of mystery with tales of intrigue, treachery and forbidden love.

And TailTowns Friends combines some of the best of Facebook games, you can harvest, decorate, and promote commerce while playing out a story full of mystery, romance and treachery! Great dialogues come with the animation and voice acting and some of the quotes are quite memorable, like:
RENE: “But then things got..complicated. Like a Rubik’s Cube wrapped in a Sudoku covered in Duct Tape.”
Along with the game are the custom designed collectible polystone figurines you can collect for in-game rewards, a virtual decor item with daily rewards, as well as unlock the characters secret life in TailTowns.

So if you are looking for your next great Facebook game, give TailTowns Friends a try and see what all the excitement is about on Facebook or check out the TailTowns blog.
