Zynga Gives Every FarmVille User A Free Crunchie Award

Zynga’s FarmVille, with over 70 million monthly users, won the Crunchies Award for best social application last week. To celebrate, they are giving everyone on FarmVille a virtual gift in the form of the award.

There’s a story about the gorilla award that we give out to the winners. It was inspired by the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, where the gorilla’s first use technology/tools (bones) after discovering the monolith. The full story, and a picture of the actual award, is here.

Anyway, I added the virtual Crunchie award to my somewhat neglected FarmVille farm, right between my chicken and my dairy farm. You can see it below. It’s not a bad likeness.

Make sure to add yours when you use FarmVille. And if you don’t like it, you can always sell it for 100 coins.
