Black Friday Breakdown…Character 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 Character 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 80 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…


   Brandine – Originally 100 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   ESBN Sports Desk with Anger Watkins – Originally 110 donuts, Should I Buy, comes with 3% bonus on all XP and cash, Full playable character

   Ginger Flanders and Amber Simpson – Originally 115 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable characters (two distinct characters)

   Italian Villa with Francesca Terwilligers – Originally 150 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Jimbo – Originally 120 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Krustylu Studios with Sideshow Mel – Originally 140 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Ling Bouvier – Originally 110 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Lucius Sweet – Originally part of Casino 2016 prize track, returned for 120 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Motherloving Sugar Co. with Diabetty – Originally 225 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Powell Motors with Herb Powell – Originally 200 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Rocket Car with Lampwick – Originally 120 donuts, Should I Buy, comes with 2% bonus on all XP and cash, Full playable character

   Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers with Lucille Botzcowski – Originally 120 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Shary Bobbins – Originally free in Easter gold box, returned for 125 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Shauna – Originally 90 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Sleep-Eazy Motel with Miss Springfield – Originally 225 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Sophie Krustofsky – Originally 110 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Springfield Coliseum with Drederick Tatum – Originally part of the Whacking Day 2013 prize track, returned for 190 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   The Wiccans – Originally 110 donuts, Should I Buy, Full playable character

   Unfinished Shed with Chester Dupree – Originally 150 donuts, Should I Buy, comes with 2.25% bonus on all XP and cash, Full playable character


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.

80 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 80 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. I will personally buy all the Character Mystery Boxes available to me first, as 80 dounts is a great deal for a premium character in my opinion.

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

  1. The only box I spent donuts on. I got Herb (yay!), Ling (ok!), Anger Whatshisname (boo! Although I guess the bonus is useful), and Shauna (cool!).

    I really don’t know whether to try again. I’d love to get Jimbo, but I suspect I used up all my good luck getting Herb first, and I’ll get stuck with Dia-Betty or the Vegas wives (hate them, hate their episodes).

  2. I had three (four?) characters in this box that I didn’t already have…unfortunately, to get the two I wanted, I ended up with Lucille, who I emphatically did not want in my game or even my inventory (she gives me the creeps). But I’m ultimately okay with that, since the deals were so incredibly awesome for the others! Hopefully, when the Christmas update comes, Lucille will no longer be in the “front” of my inventory. Just wish I could sell her back, even for a partial refund, though.


  3. I gained Jimbo, Drederick Tatum, Lucille Botzcowski and Lucius Sweet, who is the only one I was annoyed with as he was the first character I ever missed from a prize track due to getting the casino update too late to complete all of act 1.
    I also gained Mr Sparkle though from the single 20 donut box purchase I made so all round a good black Friday deal for me!

  5. These boxes are torture — I’m resisting the urge to blow through all my donuts on this box and also resisting paying real money for donuts (never have because I’m afraid once I do it once, I’ll do it again). I did do one try at this box and got Dedrick Tatum, which I wasn’t too excited about until TIGER.

  7. Already had Brandine, Chester Lampwick, Shauna and Sophie Krustofsky.

    I got, in order: Jimbo, Lucius Sweet, the Wiccans, Babysitter Bandit (The character I wanted most in the box, the premium event character I’ve been most gutted was premium), Sideshow Mel and Drederick Tatum (Actively working on getting 1 billion in Springfield Heights, currently at 600 million, and his 8 hour coffee task will come in very handy, since coffee is what I have shortages on most often).

    I might be able to save up enough donuts for one more go, but we’ll see. Either way, I’m happy with all of these.

  8. I got “Motherloving Sugar Co. with Diabetty” and “Lucius Sweet”. Too bad. Had hoped for more central figures like Jimbo, Brandine or Shauna. Or buildings like Sleep-Easy or Krustylu Studios and of course the Wiccans for their bonus.


  9. I wanted Diabetty but I can’t justify opening the box anymore this close to Christmas. Hope she comes back outside of a box. Wish I would have passed on Quinn and saved those donuts.

  10. For me it was the only box that was seriously interested in because they have finally offered up Herb for a discounted price instead of his normal 200 donuts

    i have been saving up all year for this. It was my 5th attempt before i got Herb but i didn’t mind as for those prices and the fact that I am getting so many bonuts from the rail yard I was going to get every character that I didnt already have from this box. No worries about getting a decoration or building it was full characters every go

  12. I got Miss Springfield and Tatum! Yay! Two less characters to purchase. I might try two more times as I want Diabetty too.

  13. If I pass out this box, will there ever be another chance to get DiaBetty?


  14. For me in my character box, I have Anger Watkins, Dia-Betty and Herb Powell available which cost 535 donuts to get all 3 from the regular price and 240 donuts from the box so that saves me 295 donuts (30 from AW, 145 from D-B and 120 from HP) which is more than half that I save from the regular price. This is the best box out of the other because I have been waiting for Herb to become cheaper since his first release over 2 years ago, I passed on Dia-Betty because she was too expensive to buy when she first appeared so now she is a very reasonable price and Anger because I did not know what to do with his desk when he first appeared. 🙂

  15. This was easily the best of the mystery boxes, though I still prefer the previous Black Friday formula. I already have Brandine, Jimbo, Sideshow Mel, Lucius Sweet, Lucille (babysitter bandit), Shary Bobbins, Miss Springfield, Shauna, and Sophie in my Springfield. Also already have Lauren Powers, Mr. Dewey, Baby Gerald, & Ladybot but they were featured in other boxes.

    I so wanted Unkie Herb and got him on my 6th try. Got Ling first, followed by Anger, Sideshow Bob’s wife, Tatum, Dupree, and finally Herb. As soon as I got Herb, I stopped as I only had 200 donuts left. Spend 480 Donuts and got 2 characters I really wanted (Herb and Tatum) and the rest I really wasn’t interested in at this time.
