Date Night Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another Mystery Box arrives in Springfield!  This time, it’s a Valentine’s Day box full of Date Night themed goodies from years past!

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those limited-time premium character/building/decorations with a Date Night flair to them.  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 you may have missed out on from Previous Events at a low price…

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

So for 60 donuts, you can have your shot at a variety of Date Night inspired premium characters, skins, decorations, and buildings from Date Nights of the past!  60 Donuts is equal to or less than the initial value for each item (unless they were initially prizes, in that case, they were originally free)

Valentine’s Day Mystery Box Leaves Games on February 19th

Here’s what you can win…

Brandine- Was originally 100 donuts (2014), Should I Buy

Howard’s Flowers- Was originally 70 donuts (2013), 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 (or details) posts from the past so y’all can see how much they originally cost & what specifically each building/character does.

60 donuts is a fair price for most of the items at least.  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 Date Night Mystery Box….

  1. quite1nteresting

    I got Mona, which I was so happy about, because in my other game I got her originally, and love having her feed birds with Grandpa.

    But that isn’t an option for her here, does anyone know why, or how to get that option?

  2. Got everything in my box except the hootnany barn. It will stay there.

  3. Mystery Box
    Your lure doesn’t cost a lot
    60 sprinkles can get you
    Character Building Combos (woo hoo!)
    Don’t frown if you get a dud
    There’s always the Vault, bud! 😉👍

  4. On my main Springfield I got rio days inn ero and up up and buffet, on my second I got Laura powers and her house, on my third I got the swanky fish. I’m quite happy with the box

  5. Wanted to get Howard’s flowers and up up and buffet, Howard’s was the second or third one, up up and buffet ended up being the last one, so I bought everything. Kinda glad about that

  6. I had a lot of these already, but what was left I cleaned out just so I could get Mindy.

  7. I bought everything it it! Recently I have been saving my donuts to fully enjoy (read “empty out”) the mystery boxes. In this one I had more buildings than characters. I guess I had had better luck with earlier mystery boxes.
    But those characterless buildings gotta catch up with you someday ahaha
    So they caught up with me this time.
    I really wanted DiaBetty and got her the last! All the nasty le krusty burgers without frenchy (I got him earlier) and swanky fishes and such are lining up in my temporary dump area now!
    At least I had fun emptying it 😀
    And I am holding off most purchases related to event, cause I want more mystery boxes come to me in the future!!!

  8. Eu já comprei tudo que tem na loja,e agora só falta terminar o Evento com todos os itens e personagens na minha City…

  9. I bought 4 and think I did pretty well. Becky, Diabetty, Brendan, and Mindy with their respective buildings. So 665 donuts worth for 180. There is no way I would have spent 225 for Diabetty. I haven’t even dropped the 250 for Barney and for god sake it’s Barny.

  10. What is SWANKY FISH a spoof of?
    I know its making fun of pretentious high end Japanese restaurants, but was it a more direct pun of a specific place?

  11. I bought three already. So far I got Fiesta Terrace and Jacques, Der Krazy Kraut and Becky and Motherloving Sugar Co. and Diabetty. I’m fine with those, but I really want to get Mona or Brandine 🤷🏻‍♀️

  12. Lisahadathought

    I didn’t get the French Waiter with Le Krusty Burger. I wasn’t crazy about it to start with, now I’m really disappointed.

  13. Thanks for finding that XP post from 2016 – don’t know why I couldn’t find it…much appreciated!!!

    • A helpful tip…most of the important charts etc are located on the charts and data page of the site. It’s accessible via the Charts and Data Widget on the site (if you’re viewing on mobile it’s at the bottom of the site and if you’re view on desktop it’s to the right. It’s the image of Homer at the chalkboard, and it also says charts and data). It’s also accessible via the menus on the site if you open up the menu you’ll see the charts and data link. (on mobile just open the menu and you’ll see it about halfway down. On Desktop it’s the last item listed until the Tips and Tricks heading)

  14. one random shoe

    so for two days now i’ve been back and forth with ea help on twitter & have a case opened on the ea site & in game after downloading the game again, wasting a gigabyte of data, just for one play. the login error still persists. reinstalling the game each play is the only way i get in. i’ve lost track of how much i’ve gone through with ea in regards to this but i’ll fall behind with part 3 of this event, that’s if at all i can even login again before it ends. monday afternoon my game was fine. is anyone at all experiencing this login error?? does it not let you login for a week before every event? this is only the second time it’s hit me mid event

  15. One box try and got ther Krazy Kraut and Becky. Yippee!

  16. Hi – Is there a post somewhere that details premium purchases by bonus percentages? I’ve recently (within the past 6 months) become a KEM farmer after playing this game from the inception in 2012 – my gracious, has it been that long?!?!…don’t ask me why it took so long; I guess I was scared about “spending donuts – collider – to make donuts.” Anyway, I was hoping there was a post listing/ranking premium items/characters by %%%. If there isn’t, could this be considered by the moderators in the near future? If a premium item/character does not contain bonus %, IMO, it could be omitted from the list – again, the list would be strictly for premium purchases where KEM farmers are trying to raise their bonus %. I hate having to click on each potential item I’d like to purchase only to find out there’s not bonus associated – this would be especially helpful for events where mystery boxes are available for purchase – as you can’t click on an item to see if it has a bonus – even though it’s totally random what one might win, it’d be nice to know, hey, I have 3 items available to win but only 1 has bonus associated with it…might not be worth the gamble…see what I’m getting at?

    Just a thought/request. Thanks for all you do -that goes to each moderator!


      Accessible via a few places on the site. Easiest is under the charts and data tab

    • Unfortunately, no. There are no posts related to bonus percentage only. You have to manually go to the search bar with each item’s name and find individual posts for items in the limited time mystery boxes. Or you can wait till Alissa does a mystery box post, where she manually collects and pastes all those links to all those items in the current mystery box. Basically you wait for convenience, not new info.
      As for best bonus booster, in short, it’s a 6 donut regular store mystery box with burns. Keep buying them and placing the good stuff in your springfield. Hope that helps!

      • Or you just look at the link I posted for him in the comments lol 😉

        • Oh, I did by all means, that post is about regular premium items and their bonus percentage. I even remember reading it back in 2016.
          It’s that I just thought from his original comment he had asked for limited time premium mystery boxes items’ bonus percentage. You never do special posts about bonus percentage for current mystery boxes… that’s kinda an overkill already. All info is a click away anyway.
          I should have made myself clearer. Sry! 😬

  17. Thanks a lot Alissa! I had 6 items in my box (only character: Mindy). I wish EA would fix Mona’s missing task, though.

  18. Tried one box, got Mona, so happy!
