A glimpse of Mafia Wars Cuba

If you’re a fan of Facebook’s Mafia Wars then you’re gonna be excited with the new expansion coming up called Mafia Wars Cuba.

As of right now, Mafia Wars Cuba is still in the beta stage and only those who clicked the beta-test button shown for the past week or so can access it.

flytocubaIf you were able to click that button before, you will be shown a Fly to Cuba button to take you to Mafia Wars Cuba.

Money

cubanmoney Your hard-earned cash is no good in Cuba (don’t worry it will stay in New York when you fly back) which uses Cuban pesos (C$) so you have to earn it the old fashion way, do jobs, take over businesses and fight other mafia until a money-laundering system is in place.

You can only take C$ from fighting only if that person has them and only if you’re fighting in Cuba. Sorry New Yorkers.

Jobs

cubanjobs

There are 5 classes of jobs that you can do: El Soldado (35-59), El Capitan (60-84), El Jefe (85-109), El Patron (110-129) and El Padrino (130+). The lowest energy-costing job starts at 10 and only gives you a maximum of C$290. That’s tough considering the next job already requires Cuban equipment that you need to buy.

Properties

cubanbusiness

In Cuba, the Properties are replaced by Businesses which you can take over and upgrade. Tobacco Plantation which costs C$25,000, Sugar Plantation (C$50,000), Factory (C$100,000) and Coca Field (C$250,000). You have to earn $25,000 before you can start getting passive income.

Items

cubanarmors

There are 20 items that you can buy from the mafia store including 7 decently powered armors. There are also loots but I still have to get to a job that drops them.

As of writing, the items that I bought from Cuba are not being used during a fight whether the fight takes place in Cuba or in New York. 

Energy and experience are both shared in NY and Cuba so you don’t have to level up again. I guess the only benefit beta testers have is a head start in Cuban jobs, loots, bonuses and money. And also bragging rights to be flaunting those Cuban items in your profile page.

Even so, it’s nice to be in Cuba!

How does one fight for Pesos. I have done it a few times, but I do not know how? Please explain?????

Calvin said...

as of now, the fight list for both NY and Cuba are the same so it's chance that you get to take pesos from a guy you attacked. i suggest you bookmark that guy with the pesos.

So the question still stands, how do get money laundring going?

Anonymous said...

i keep fighting people and earning nothing. Cuba isn't fun because I can't really do anything there. With no money to buy the tools needed my only option is to fight but if I fight someone with no money, i've wasted my stamina. I think I'll stay in new york.

Same here - I'm finding Cuba really frustrating. Bring on the money-laundering!

Anonymous said...

i say no to money laundering... cuba wont be fun anymore as is the case with new york. too much money spoil the game. make the player work hard to earn money. :)

to get pesos do jobs - simple. get enough to invest in business #1 and it'll start to take care of itself.

can you use cuban weapons in new york?

i just finished upgrading the last cuban buissness to its max and im sittin on mad money till i master my first tier cuba = ez

Calvin said...

don't expect too much from mastering cuban tiers. the first one gives an attack bonus and the rest will net you a powerful item instead of more bonus.

how come i don't get the full amount of money when i do jobs in cuba

Anonymous said...

you don't get full amount because of bribes. buying a lot of cuban items will decrease the amount of payout you get from jobs because you have to pay the bribe amount for them.
