    Next time this happens, you get a great mystery box, immediately tap to go to the other neighborhoods then go back to your town so you force a synchronization

    I've heard this happen to a number of people. It's ridiculous.

    Bump. So it happened again. Received mystery box w 10 donuts. Game crashed immediately after collecting. Open game again to find a mystery box containing 250$. So weak. Out of the past 5 mystery boxes I have received $250 (4x) and 10 white picket fences.

    Odd that the game immediately has crashed the only 2 times I found donuts in them, yet the game has never crashed when collecting numerous mystery boxes containing small cash, trees, newspaper stands, or other generally useless items.

    I have had the same thing happen for the last two mystery boxes. I had 10 donuts twice and it crashed both times. Ended up with newspaper stands both times. So now I wait for the game to crash once before I collect my weekly mystery box and I get to keep what I get the first time. I have not gotten donuts again though.

    Like I added in my previous post, it is strange that out of the 20+ mystery boxes I have opened for the weekly play bonus that the only time (twice) my game has crashed and prompted a new box was when I had received a box with 10 donuts. Not once has the game crashed when receiving $250, trees, garbage cans, etc... and prompted a new box when it may actually be beneficial.

    The other odd thing to me is that the weekly bonus is set up to be a progressional bonus which rewards consistent gameplay, however the majority of my mystery boxes have contained items equal to the 2nd day of the 5 day bonus scheme.

    I agree. It really sucks to miss out on free donuts and prizes worth more than a cheap tree or otherwise.

    Logged in earlier and got my weekly mystery box which contained 10 donuts (sweet), but the game was buggy and crashed like 30 seconds later. When I restarted the 10 donuts were gone and a new mystery box appeared containing......... a tree. Awesome.

    I hate myself for caring enough to even post this but had to rant. Sucks because donuts seem impossible to collect, as I started playing towards the tail end of the Xmas holiday coin rush and I am not willing to spend real $ on them. I already screwed up by accidentally selling some of the donuts you get at the beginning and squandering some others by accidentally rushing tasks and not being able to cancel in time.

    Just be glad you didn't get the Lemon tree show up and get something else cause I think that would get someone **** the most to get the hardest and rarest item in the game to just lose it in a second

    Since they refuse to address this mechanic, people have figured out how to use it to their own benefit. You can find out how on google.

    I wish I had a chance to try and sync up. Game crashed before I could do anything. Will have to search how to leverage to my benefit as mjr1124 suggested.
