Ace in the Sleeve

Ace in the Sleeve (53 attack, 23 defense) is an item now available in Mafia Wars.



To get this item, simply install the Zynga Poker App and get to level 6 (in poker). About the best way to do this seems to be to just get into a 1 round tournament and play.

---

String of Firecrackers now has 46 defense. This is the reward from the Mystery Bag Collection.

---

There are two new free gifts: Zip Line (vehicle; 15 attack and 20 defense) and Hyena on Chain (weapon; 20 attack, 16 defense).

---

There's not much else going on in the game right now. St. Patrick's Day is coming up, so expect an in-game holiday event soon!

  1. I'm level 18 on Poker, tried everything, playing in tournaments and regular rounds--never got the ace in hand. Is there something else I should know? Thanks for all you write!

  9. Whatever I do, I can't get the blasted Ace in Hand... Do I need to click on something, like the Laundry link? Any advice would help!!

  10. The new collections look just like a way to get us to spend tons of energy on crappy pay offs in the end... Another trick to get ppl to buy GF points, IMHO

    For Crew Collection, so far I'd focused on "Weapons Shipment Hijacking" to get that "Fox Haunter Rocket Launcher" 48A 27D end up get multiple singles of every items except none for Container Key. Anyone know where to get that last piece to vault this set?

  14. I have the Ace in the Sleeve in my loot, but is not listed in my weapons although my three weapons are all lower. Any suggestions?

  15. Looks like you spoke too soon regarding "not much going on in the game" as right when you say that, some new collections with a brand new strategy come out. It's almost the same as when an announcer mentions "perfect game" in baseball and the next pitch is hit out for a homerun. Good stuff.

    Also, LOVE your site. Love it. Check it quite often!!

  16. New collections suck energy out like there's no tomorrow! Makes you want to buy GF points so you could "collect 'em all!" Can only help 5 friends a day, I don't understand the limitation, since they want us to spend as much energy as possible on these tasks. It's irritating that you have to do a job you've mastered long ago just to get one of those items. --Knuckles

  17. can anyone post a screenshot of the crew collection job? i've been searching my jobs and i can't find it. oh, and i haven't finished NY yet so could it be that it's still unlocked? thanks!

  18. Got that Ace in Hand; you really do have to click through the game, and don't close the tab. Got it in roughly three hours.

    As for the new crew collections, I'm confused as well. It looks like the luck of the draw on both of yourself and the people that choose to help you, and only released through jobs as you continue. I don't know, I've only gotten two items so far.

  19. it's not a job, its a collection. They are terrible, I just posted an update. I wanted to check it out and be able to explain it rather than just rushing a post and throwing up pictures, lol.
