Black Friday 2018 Should I Buy Round-Up Part 1: Creatures to Youngsters

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So typically when it comes to a Mystery Box I lay out all of the details for each box in a separate post, however, Black Friday brought us SIXTEEN total boxes and a whole lotta stuff inside of each one! So to do an individual post on each box seems a little crazy, at least to me.  (especially since it’s nearly Thanksgiving and I’ve got a ton of stuff to prepare)

So rather than do my typical Mystery Box post, for each box, I’ve decided to do two big posts.  Each post will cover 8 boxes, their contents will be linked to a previous post and next to each item I’ll include the original donut cost (if applicable).  This will help you get a sense of what’s inside and what the value of each item is.

Since you can’t pick and choose what to buy from each box, you’ll have to make your own decisions based on what you like/want and what you can afford to spend.  Hopefully, the linked posts (and original costs) will help you make that decision.

So here we go with the first round of boxes, everything from Creatures to Youngsters!

  1. Can tokens be saved and used for anything beyond Black Friday?

  2. I went after the youngsters box. I had 16 within the box and was able to get all except Sherri & Terri. If purchased everything it would have been 1760 donuts compared to 510. The only downside was i got Patches & Poor Violet which was a free character set. Also Yard Work Simulator was cheaper through the tech box. Overall I enjoyed the increase of characters and buildings within my Springfield.

  3. I had 1 item in the creature box which was the Spotlight Dance Bot, 4 alter egos: Camera Hat Homer, Foxes Krusty, Pharaoh Skinner and Rockin’ Otto, 8 imports*: Arc, Calabresis, Arthur Fortune, Magic Station, Johnny Tightlips, Pont du Gard, the Pope and the 2 ghosts, 5 items with hidden agendas: Adil, Café Kafka, Cypress Creek Elementary, Jack the Ripper and Guy Incognito, and 4 youngsters (was 5 but I got Adil in the agenda box): Allison, Erik, Jeremy and Wendell. 😊😊😊😊😊
    * I would of had 9 items with Mexican Duffman but since I have Duffman he doesn’t appear in the box for me. 😡

  4. Almost too much to choose from. I put my stakes at the youngsters box, spent 240 donuts and got 3 buildings and 4 and a half premium characters (Sherri and Terri) for a total original value of 630 donuts. Pretty good deal, and enough novelty for me for a while 🙂

  5. OK, so, I know some people think this Black Friday was terrible, but I loved it. I don’t generally spend any money on the game, so it only seems fair to me that I should spend at least a little money every year. Here’s how my math worked out: I spent $49.95 for 900 donuts and 7 tokens, which I know is more than “a little money,” but I really wanted that donut factory. 😉 Not only that, but the prize line also included an additional 16 tokens (I think–I know I ended up with 23 tokens). With my tokens, I got 9 things from the Gold Box, 4 of which I wanted. Those 4 items would have cost me 750 donuts–but since I used tokens, they didn’t cost me anything, So I consider myself up 750 donuts from that. I had 14 tokens left over after I got everything I wanted from the Gold Box and traded them in for donuts. There’s another 168 donuts I’m up. I wanted to limit myself to spending the 900 donuts I bought, so I only went in for four other boxes: Imports (which didn’t have many items), Creatures (because each item was only 15 donuts), Women (which didn’t have many items and I’m a feminist, haha), and Bronze (because each item was only 20 donuts). I spent a total of 755 donuts to get everything I wanted (I stopped in each box when I’d received the last thing I wanted)–which included 395 donuts for things I didn’t want. But even then, if I had only bought the things I wanted, they would have cost me 780 donuts had I bought them at full price, so that’s a net of another 25 donuts for me. So as i see it, I spent $49.95 for 900 donuts, got 1,430 worth of stuff I wanted, still have a couple hundred donuts more than when I started–AND I’m getting 6 donuts a day from the donut factory.

  6. I bought a whole bunch of stuff and cleaned out every mystery box-
    I was collecting so many things and hitting finish build and new character tasks, when suddenly a new piece of squid port was earned.
    As I was clearing so many at once I have no idea who or what earned it
    I maxed out squidport years ago so where did this come from?
    Can anybody help me?

  7. WTF??!! I was opening the CREATURES box – there were 4 prizes, I was trying to get the BURN’s DRAGON (199 donut value), so when I opened it 3 times, of course I got all BUT the Dragon. So I’m GUARANTEED to get the Dragon on the next open – but now the CREATURES box has * POOF *, magically disappaeared. What the heck??! Is this a rip off?

    • First, double check your inventory to confirm you didn’t purchase it without realizing. Secondly, contact EA. Sounds like a glitch.

      • THANK YOU for the advice – I’ll check my inventory now. And failing that, I’ll go to EA and tell them what happened. 🙂

        • That happened to me last week. Except it actually came up with the doughnut spend warning. Before nothing happened & the box proofed. I called them then & just got off the phone with them now to check in on it. I was informed this time that you can not buy out the boxes. It was never a guaranteed chance. 😲😞
