Players are starting to report that the Face-Off Event is now active. Not all accounts have it yet so be patient. The Mafia Wars Team gave us a preview of this event 10 days ago but not a lot of information 
. There will be a series of 5 items and each one has a 2 day voting period. If you item wins the vote, you get to keep it. If it loses then you get 15 Power Cards as a “Consolation Prize” which most players would call a booby prize. I will post a poll for each of the 5 Face-Offs and hopefully everyone will win. The key to getting the loot is to vote with the majority. See below for more details and the rest of the loot items. The first poll can be found here
. There were about 3,000 votes total and over 2,500 were for the Gazelle.
To play, simply click the item you are voting for and share the request with your mafia.
Once you are finished a red “VOTED” label will appear over the item you chose. Of course you can always buy a vote for the other item for 15 reward points. That will ensure you get one loot item for each Face-Off. The stats on these items are less than crate items so it would be best to use them more wisely.
Clicking on posts made by others will yield the clicker 1 Power Card up to 15 per day. The reset is at 12am PDT.
I got nothing but an erroneous message but that could be because the event isn’t active on my account yet.
To get your 15 Power Cards, run the Stream Scanner and find these requests under the “FeedLimits” tab. You can also filter them by using the search feature. Type in “Vote” under the description.
The items for the next 4 Face-Offs are shown below. The best strategy will be to wait until you get a better idea what the popular vote will be. This of course assumes Zynga doesn't fudge any of the data. I don’t care how much one item is better than the other because any of these items are better than 15 Power Cards!
