4th of July Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time to celebrate America’s Birthday in Springfield!  Nothing says America quite like throwing a big party to celebrate yourself!  😉  Of course it wouldn’t be a party without a Mystery Box, now would it?  Of course EA’s go a box for this occasion!  They have a box for everything! This time around it’s full of items from 4th of July Events (and some not) of the past…

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those 4th of July/American inspired premium character/building/decorations.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside…

This Mystery Box is a great way to get items at a discount or something you missed out on from a previous event.

And…if you already have everything in the box you won’t see the box in your store. 

So for 75 donuts, you can have your shot at a variety of America inspired premium characters, decorations, and buildings from recent past events.  75 Donuts is less than the initial value for each item.

4th of July Mystery Box Leaves Games on July 11th

Here’s what you can win…

Abe Lincoln and his Cabin- Originally 150 donuts.  Should I buy.  Premium character/building combo.

George Washington and the Cherry Tree- Originally 180 donuts.  Should I buy.  Premium character/decoration combo.  Tree earns 2.75% bonus on cash and XP

Richard Nixon and Scandalgate Hotel- Originally 150 donuts.  Should I buy.  Premium character/building combo.

Teddy Roosevelt and the Springfield National Park- Originally 200 donuts.  Should I buy.  Premium character/building combo. Yes, the park earns cash and XP…

Dwight Eisenhower and his 4×4- Originally 150 donuts.  Should I buy.  Premium character/building combo. 4×4 earns 4% on cash and XP

Presidential Estate w/ Freedom- Originally 100 donuts.  Should I Buy.  NPC/building combo.  Freedom flies around and is animated when tapped.

Americatown with Sailor Kumiko (comes with Kumiko too if you don’t have her)-  Originally 135 donuts. Should I Buy.  Costume for Kumiko and Building for Springfield

Republican Party HQ- Originally 90 donuts.  Should I BuyBuilding for Springfield.

Sprawl Mart- Originally 90 donuts.  Should I BuyBuilding for Springfield.  (Agnes has a task there)

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

75 donuts is a MORE THAN fair price for most of the items at least (especially the presidents).  So my thoughts are, if you have something in there you want…give it a try.  You’ll likely get something worth it.

And that’s it my friends!  The details on the 4th of July Mystery Box….

  1. I had been saving my pink sprinklies all year in hopes of getting Abe Lincoln. I had enough to buy 4 boxes. I got Americatown, Nixon, Washington, Eisenhower. Are you kidding me??? I finally caved and bought more donuts. I thought if I get freaking Sprawlmart I’m done! Praise Jebus, I got Mr. Lincoln! I shouted so loud my kids came running to see what was the matter. 😜😜😜

  2. I needed all of the items and took the chance since there were a lot of combos so it was worth the risk. Got Washington and Roosevelt on the two draws. Stopped after that since I didn’t want to press my luck.

  3. I took a chance and got my first choice: Lincoln! Woo-hoo! 🙂

  4. Hey these are GREAT Building / Character Building Combos from TSTO past at a bargain …. get ’em while you can, but my new rule is still being enforced (EA needs to offer free Land Tokens for each Building bought, or I’m not going to spend the Sprinkles)!

    Happy 4th to All 🇬🇧🎇🇺🇲

  5. I thought it was a fun box and bought the few items I didn’t already have. But it’s a huge FAIL to have the Sprawlmart in there when it’s much cheaper in the regular rotating vault box—-luckily for me it was in my vault and I purchased it from the Vault before buying anything from the July4th box!

  6. I only needed Roosevelt and Eisenhower.. very glad to finally have all the Presidents! I think Reagan and Lincoln are the only ones I paid full price for. Definitely low on donuts after this event.

  7. I figured that with 8 characters/ items and 6 being presidents, I’d have a great chance of finally getting a president. Sigh. Think again. I got the Republican HQ and Americatown/ Kumiko. As a freemium player, I give up. Maybe next year.🤷‍♀️

  8. Tried once, got Washington. Cool character and his tree fits very well between Japanese cherry trees from Around the World event. And considering he was 180 donuts when released, quite happy about this box 🙂

  9. Picked up Washington and Roosevelt last year so am glad this is back. Just annoying they bundle non character buildings which I have no interest in, will see how I fair in the first two purchases as to whether I buy any more. Have wanted Kumiko for some time now.

  10. Bought all presidents. Even RR. I am a very happy tapper! Too bad I couldn’t buy the estate, as I had Freedom from before

    • For me its the opposite, I have the Presidential Estate but can’t get Freedom. I wish EA would split them up and have them as a separate option to buy.

  11. I’ve bought Nixon, Sprawl-Mart and Eisenhower before. I’d most like Washington and Lincoln, but none of the other items. Therfore, I’m not going chances and skip the lootbox. I hate the concept, anyway.

  12. I tried once and got George Washington and the Cherry Tree.
    I think i’m going to buy Reagan and try this again.

  13. I took a swing and got Lincoln which was great. His story-line is fantastic. Washington or Roosevelt are the only others I want.

  14. Had all but two of them to begin with.
    I had been saving up for these, got them all (sprawlmart on the first try, yippee)
    Personally, I love the mystery boxes. Occasionally you get something you wouldn’t have gotten otherwise, but always a great deal.

    I love the dialogue from Nixon’s questlines! Sorry NicoRox loves the dialogue from Dick Nixon’s questlines wish I could do them again.

    I had been saving up for a while cause the box winds were howling my name, so I tried my luck for two of these glorious boxes. Lincoln and Nixon, I’m now too afraid to get another cause I don’t think I could have asked for a better pair. I really wanted Teddy, but my friend got him instead.

  16. I already have all that stuff! So I guess that’s why I didn’t get a notification of anything patriotic. I would have liked to see some red, white and blue in the game

    • Me too. I have everything. That happens a lot with the boxes for me though, I never see them since I own almost everything.

  17. I finally tried a mystery box cuz the odds were in my favor. Wrong. Got the Presidential Estate. Cue raspberries…..

  18. Keith1Roon991

    Got them all 😁

  19. I got everything in the box. Please with it. Good bargain price for most. Already had Kumiko and Sprawl Mart. 75 sprinklies is a good price for character and building. I spent 3 days KEM and RT farming and replenish my donuts to 1063 now. Have a happy holiday tomorrow.

  20. I just got the last prize for this event 8 days ahead.
    I do not think I will try the box because I cannot choose what I want.
    If EA would let us choose then I would definitely spend donuts. Maybe they will change it in the future, who knows lol.

    • If you could choose, it wouldn’t be a mystery box. Also, each item would probably cost more donuts if you could choose.

      • Not knowing what you’re going to get makes it fun for me. I’m a Mystery Box addict!

  21. I took a shot at the box and came very close to pulling everything in it I wanted before pulling sprawl mart when I pulled that and said hell with it and finished the box because I wanted everything but sprawl mart. Already had America Town and Sailor Kumiko.

  22. I sprlurged on the box 📦 this time around and was able to extract Lincoln/ Eisenhower / Roosevelt / Washington / Saliot Kumiko
    If I didn’t say so myself, I won the mystery game
    Only Nixon / SprawlMart & HQ is left in the box

  23. Is there a chance that Giuseppe Granfinali will appear in one of these Mystery boxes or he is totally forgotten?

    • He’s not around this year

    • I’m missing Giuseppe too, he’s the only one I need left to complete the 4th of July set. I wish he was in this.

    • It seems that EA have forgotten him again this year which makes it 3 years now since he was last re-released in 2015. There have been plenty of opportunities for EA to re-release him including The Springfield Jobs, Christmas/New Years time and 4th July. I rEAlly do hope for players that don’t have him get the chance to unlock him sometime this year. 🙂

    • Tracy-1ltwoody920

      I want Giuseppe
      I want Hollis – Oldies
      I want Milo – Business Owner
      I want Grant Conner – Sport Toughs
      I want Brutus – Old World Villain

      And I want the body I had when I was 25 years old.

      Is all this too much to ask for?

      • There’s a very dark joke in there somewhere about a body…but we won’t go there 🙀. Have a happy fourth😸.

        • Tracy-1ltwoody920

          Thanks for brightening my morning.
          I could have said,
          “I want the body of a 16 year old”
          THAT truly would have been very dark – and very sicko.
          🤔. 😂
          And the fourth was fun, thanks. Hope yours was as well.

  24. I emptied that box 😂 my approach is “farm until you have enough sprinkles to get all items from all incoming boxes, then stop”
