CityVille Fan Meet Up Event!

Hey Citizens!

On April 9th, 2011, we invited CityVille players to join us in San Jose, CA. Who else was there? Members of the CityVille Team, including yours truly (Clerk Casey) and other familiar faces like Gary Gardener and Mayor Max.

For those that weren’t able to make it, we’ll fill you in on what happened and we even have a little video for you to enjoy.

We served lunch and refreshments at Rock Bottom Brewery and Restaurant. The entire restaurant was covered in CityVille decor including posters, balloons, and TV monitor displaying some of our favorite cities. Through out the building we gathered feedback, suggestions, add me’s and more from players on open whiteboards for them to write on.

As an added bonus we also had CityVille photo booth and props where players could take pictures with their family and friends.

We also invited a Balloon guru to make spectacular balloons for the kiddies to enjoy! I even took home an adorable San Francisco Giants Bumblebee which is still sitting on my nightstand.

The refreshments were delicious! The delectable appetizers kept our bellies full while we chatted about our favorite game. A HUGE shout out goes to the wait staff who had wonderful service and were very helpful!

After lunch was served, we held a live Bingo game. Players scrambled to find other players that were Level 60+, won a skyscraper in the daily bonus, had a Big Ben in their City and more in a race to finish first! Hot prizes were given out to some lucky winners!

Once we were done playing, our Q & A Session started. We gave players the chance to have their biggest questions answered by the creators of CityVille!  Everyone learned new things from our discussion, and we learned a lot from our players too! As a special presentation, we gave everyone in attendance a sneak peek on a long-awaited item!

Last but not least we handed out some stellar swag! We gave out a lunch box, mug, shirt, game card and more!

Overall, we met some great folks that gave us a ton of important insight into CityVille, and we were all happy to be there. We appreciate everyone that took the time to travel to San Jose.  Many players got a chance to meet our team  as well as other passionate players like themselves. Here are a few things some players had to say!

“I would have traveled 6 hours to come to this!  It was so much fun!”

“Thank you so much for this event.  It was a great idea!  You should do more!”

We can’t wait to hold more CityVille Fan Meet Up Events in the future! Stay tuned for more to come!
