Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Wowsers the latest mini-event to hit Springfield brought us the ultimate Mystery Box! With over 700 items (737 at my count), the Yearbook Mystery Box is the largest single Mystery Box to ever hit our pocket-sized towns.
This isn’t your ordinary Mystery Box. No, this is a premium box full of almost every limited-time (and not so limited-time) premium item and prize to ever hit Springfield. It’s pretty insane.
Because this box is different than a standard Mystery Box I’m going to treat this post different than the standard Mystery Box post. For starters, this is going up shortly after the event hit our games because I know this is the info you’re all really wanted to know. And I’m going to breakdown what’s inside, as well as give you some tips to get what you really want in Springfield. So let’s take a look…
Update: Since the writing of this post the Mystery Box can be found in the Premium Section of your Store. Just click the Homer Buddha Icon….
This Mystery Box is a great way to get items you may have missed out on from Previous Events at a low price…30 donuts is a steal for this stuff!
And…because there are items that are not unique in Springfield, everyone will see a Mystery Box in their game.
At the premise, this is like your basic Mystery Box. Spend 30 donuts and have a shot at a variety of premium characters, skins, decorations, and buildings from events of the past! 30 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)
What’s different about this box is it only shows 5 items at a time. Meaning you have a 20% chance to get one of the items 5 items you see in your box at any given time.
How do you see new items appear? Hit the Blue Refresh Button…
and your 5 Mystery Box Prizes will change to show 5 different prizes…
(Not that I need to explain but, yes, these are screenshots from two different games. I initially was in my main Springfield for the first screenshot. Then jump to my lower level game to check out the returning content and just took a MB screenshot from there)
So the best strategy for the Mystery Box is to refresh your box until you see 5 items you like and/or want. Then go for it. Or at the very least, make sure there’s something you want in that group of 5 before trying.
It’s also important to note, yes there’s the Donut Truck, Donut Boat and Donut store in the box. THEY DO NOT AWARD FREE DONUTS. They’re just decorations/buildings from previous Donut Days. There are NO FREE Donuts in this box.
Also, yes you may have screens that only show 1 or two items.
And, because there are some items that are not unique (like the Whale) your box shouldn’t disappear from your game..even if you think you have everything. At least not until the mini-event ends.
Yearbook Mystery Box Leaves Games on March 26th
(on 3/14 an app store update was released, Classless reunion Patch 1, that removed the timer from the game box. FWIW there never was an official end date written in the files for the Box (before or after the patch). So no telling if this will stick around after the 26th or not.
And now, here’s what you can win…
Listen, there are 737 items. I’m not doing my normal Mystery Box Breakdown. I’ve got a full list in Alphabetical Order of what’s in the box, and (if available) i’ve linked it to the SIB post or prize post so you can see more details. If you want to know what it is/does or how much it originally cost click that link.
Listwise, it appears in the files with other names and in some case without indicating characters coming with them (if they do). I tried to go from memory to indicate characters, but I know I missed a bunch. If it came with a character before it’ll come with it again. Go by the pictures you see in the box, not my list. My list is just so you know every possible item available.
30 donuts is a fantastic steal for a lot of these items.
And that’s it my friends! The details on the Ballot Box Mystery Box….
