Hours ago, Mafia Wars unveiled the Silence Don Romo challenge - with an Achievement AND a new Collection that will whet our appetites for the debut of Italy.
With its dual mission (that earns you an Achievement) and 7-piece Collection, the Silence Don Romo challenge is similar in structure to the Valentine's Day Massacre, St. Patrick's Day, and Fix the Global Cup challenges, which I found much more enjoyable than the relatively-robotic Dublin/Mumbai/Paris/London missions.
You can Silence Don Romo three ways, with the previously-seen 5 minute/8 hour/1 day options, and corresponding 1%/12%/20% completion, and 20%/50%/100% chance on getting a Don Romo Collectible (see below) or "Event Item" at the end of that time.
I've started with the 8 hour route, using a tip Colin had previously posted.
Like the Global Cup Collection, Lucky Slots Collection, Valentine Day Massacre Collection, and the St. Patrick's Day Collection, the Silence Don Romo challenge also has a 7-piece Pasta Collection.
Ziti is a free gift that you can send to and receive from your Mafia.
Manicotti and Lasagna drop from fights.
Spaghetti and Rotini drop from jobs.
Conchigle and Farfalle from the Silence Don Romo jobs. These last two will be the hardest to get because of the time limitation on those jobs.
So after a fight in Bangkok, the Manicotti dropped as a reward:
I haven't seen Rotini or Spaghetti drop from a job yet, but it appears that these items can drop from any job in any city.
The Silence Don Romo collection is found under the SPECIAL menu in Collections & Vault:
The reward for obtaining all 7 collection pieces is a Home Cooked Meal, with 68 defense
Get to work - this one ends on Saturday night.
As with other limited time Collections, your extras may be more valuable once the challenge is over... so be generous with your Mafia, but work to get some extra pieces - especially the Conchigle and Farfale - they may pay off down the road, much like certain Soccer Balls and Easter Eggs do now.
