Black Friday Breakdown…Building Mystery Box

Bonjour Beautiful Business-minded Bargain Box Budget Buyers & Barterers,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “B”)


While yesterday Americans gave thanks and focused on the three F’s – Family, Food, and Football; today is Black Friday. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and is known for it’s promotional sales (Think “Boxing Day” sales the day after Christmas for those in the Commonwealth).

As was previewed on Monday in this post here, Black Friday has arrived and brought with it eight Mystery Boxes. So today we’ll take an in-depth look at each of these eight Mystery Boxes.

We continue with the Building Mystery Box!

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those premium character/building/decorations you may have missed out on or hesitated to buy earlier for a discounted price of 70 donuts.  And…if you already have everything in the box you won’t see the box in your store. By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside…

Here’s what you can win…


   Bastille – Originally part of the Destination Springfield 2017 prize track, No SIB as it’s never been for sale

   Beach House – Originally 120 donuts, Should I Buy

   Blarney Castle – Originally 115 donuts, Should I Buy

   Column Mansion – Originally 120 donuts, Should I Buy, rewards 2 million REV 

   Crouching Panda Hidden Egg Roll – Originally 100 donuts, Should I Buy

   Duff Center Arena – Originally 200 donuts, Should I Buy

   Incubator Think Tank – Originally 100 donuts, Should I Buy, rewards 1.5 million REV 

 King Homer’s Skyscraper – Originally a THOH 2013 community prize, returned for 250 donuts, Should I Buy

   La Belle Frottage – Originally 185 donuts, Should I Buy

   Little Lisa’s Recycling Plant – Originally 200 donuts, Should I Buy, Earns blue prints

   Moe’s House – Originally 110 donuts, Should I Buy

   Rio Days-Inn-Ero – Originally 100 donuts, Should I Buy

   Rocket to Your Doom – Originally 80 donuts, Should I Buy

   Royal Tokyo – Originally 80 donuts, Should I Buy

   Simpson’s Laser Tag – Originally 145 donuts, Should I Buy

   Springfield Greenhouse – Originally available in the Nature Bundle for 100 donuts, Should I Buy

   Wholesome and Son’s Publishing – Originally 80 donuts, Should I Buy


Now, while I know you can’t pick and choose which items you want from the box, I included the Should I Buy posts from the past so you all can see how much they originally cost and what specifically each building, character, or decoration does.

70 donuts is a bargain for most of these items…except for items that were originally free, as getting it for free is the best deal…but still 70 donuts is a fair price for most of the items at least. So my thoughts are, if you have something in there you really want…give it a try. You’ll likely get something worth it. Though, personally, I’ll be going for the Character Mystery Box first.

And that’s it my friends!  The details on the Building Mystery Box. Be sure to come back every few hours when I go into details about the other Mystery Boxes.

  1. In my building box I have Crouching Panda Hidden Eggroll, Rio-Days-Inn-Ero and Royal Tokyo, so that is 280 donuts total for all 3 at regular price but from the box it is 210 donuts for all 30 saving me about 70 donuts or 1/4 from the original price. This is still a good deal for me because at least I don’t have a free building available and they can look in the China, Brazil and Japan areas. 🙂

    • The only buildings I already had from the list were Moe’s house and Bastille Building. I was hoping for The Think Tank, The Greenhouse or Homer Skyscraper. Yesterday I won The Greenhouse and today I won the Think Tank. Yay thank you EA. 🌸🐱🌟

  2. Does anyone know if there really is a way of knowing which item we will get from the boxes? If there is a trick or a pattern as to how they appear (because the order of the items changes each time) or is it just randomly selected? 🌟🌸🐱

  3. Buildings with no Characters
    I guess noobs can take advantage
    I can gamble someplace else. 🤣

    • I’m not a noob and I liked this box….it’s a good one for those of us who enjoy the town-designing aspect of this game.

  4. Spent a lot on other mystery boxes, so I’m glad to get Little Lisa Recycling Plant on the first hit. Major bargain – much, much better than a regular Black Friday sale.

    We will really need a poll at the end of the sale to see how many donuts people spent, in total. I’m betting the top end of poll results will be in the stratosphere of multiple THOUSANDS of donuts…

    • I decided to use an iTunes card to buy some doughnuts for the tokens and to purchase some new items. I just need to decide which of the boxes to open… From this box I would really like the think tank, greenhouse or Homer skyscraper. But I don’t have anything except Moes house and the Bastille building, so quite a big gamble. 😐 I agree, it would be interesting to see the amount of 🍩🍩🍩 that were spent and bought. 🐱🌟🌸

    • I went only for the characters, I had 5 on offer, so I spent 400, I’ve been KEM farming prior to Black Friday (for the first time on about half a year), so it didn’t really bother me to spend it, but i won’t gamble on the other boxes. Most don’t have anything of interest to me, and the one that does have Maison Derriere has way too many other items. I don’t think I would get it in less than 3 tries to make it advantegous.

  5. I’ve been envying that greenhouse in my neighbors towns for ages, and now it’s mine!!

    I liked this box and will probably get just about everything that I didn’t already have.

    There is so much good stuff in most of these boxes that I feel like I’m getting tons of little holiday presents (albeit a bit early)! 😃🎁😃 I’m not putting out everything I’m getting right away, though, both because I haven’t figured out where everything should go and because I want to stretch out the fun!

  6. First time the greenhouse was offered, I was donut poor. Second time, it was in a bundle with a character I already had, so it wasn’t offered to me. This time, it’s in a box with seven other things that I don’t particularly want, and maybe one or two other things I wouldn’t mind having. It would seem I’m never gonna get that greenhouse ☹️

  7. I am up to 1.91 billion now!!! Help me Safi … need that 2 billion kudos marker 😎

  8. I already own Beach House from last black Friday, and King Homer’s Skyscraper from this Halloween. Not really keen on getting anything else from the box. I spent the rest of my donuts on Sideshow Mel, Sophie, Diabetty, and trying to empty the Bronze box. Back to 6 donuts again.

  9. Sure… bring back everything but the glowing rotating waste barrels.

    Literally the only item/character/building I need to be 100% complete.

    1 item away!!! It’s madness! Please may the bring it back one day.

    TL/DR have everything they are offering thru the boxes

  10. Is anyone else experiencing a glitchy game? I was finishing up the story ine tasks for Quinn and Coat of Foxes Krusty and now I can barley move through my Springfield. Also, my game keeps making the task done noise repeatedly….

    • Close down. Restart. Clear your cache.

      • Thank you, Patric. Turned it off, cleared cache, & restarted to no avail. Uninstalled & reinstalled…still the same problem. Same as compu73rguy. I’m now hoping that when the Thanksgiving/Black Friday update is over it will return to normal.

        • Have you had the message about “too many decorations” ? During the Halloween event I was barely able to scroll at all, but I stored a couple of decorations and it fixed the problem. 🐱🌸🌟

    • Actually, no. Since yesterday, I have the sound that plays when a mission is complete playing on loop… Doesn’t stop me from playing the game, but it’s annoying (I restarted, went to Krustyland, went to visit a friend, had a friend visit me, use bluestacks to access my game, neither of those worked (and it did it on Bluestacks too)).

  11. It’s funny how appealing the Beach House is to me right now, I’d like it but I don’t really have a suitable place for it.
