    So after buying the cracker factory with Luann with some saved donuts, I had some left over to play with. I reviewed the odds of each prize in the new boxes and decided to buy new boxes until I either had all the premium items or ran out of donuts. I bought a total of 13 boxes (14 with the first free one) over the past 3 days and got all the premium items (78 donuts spent). By my math, that's 410 donuts worth of premium items (feel free to correct me).

    Boxes opened with prizes
    1 stand (free)
    2 SVT
    3 BHL
    4 pond
    5 billboard
    6 bunker
    7 stand
    8 10 donuts
    9 van
    10 tire fire
    11 kearney
    12 10 donuts
    13 pond
    14 lard lad (not all above are in exact order, but LLD was last item I didn't have and the one I wanted most).

    I still have 31 donuts left over. In principle, the new MB system is the same gambling-with-boxes routine we saw with last Easter, but I chose to keep going even though I was ahead after the first box I bought with donuts (SVT). Kudos to EA for finding a way to rejuvenate interest in the game following a major event AND leave players feeling good about their purchases (for the most part).

    Does anybody know those 2 things:

    1. How long will the new boxes stay in shop?
    2. does it increase the chances to get 10 Dounuts, if you have Kearny and Lawyer?

    My free one gave me Lard Lad, and I bought another and got the Itchy & Scratchy Billboard, then quit while I was ahead...for now :)

    I was reading that if you already have a unique Premium item, and get it in the mystery box, you'll get the donut equivalent. Like if you already have Kearny, you'll get 60 donuts, BHL will give 90, etc. Can anyone confirm that?

    I already had BHL, Kearny and Squeaky Voiced Teen, so it'd be awesome to score the donuts for them.

    I'd say that is false. There are 10 and 30 donut prizes just like in the original mystery box but no one has won a 60/90 donut prize under this new system.

    Freedom player so I didn't have any if not most of this stuff. Not in any order:

    - Tire Fire (1)
    - Christmas Land of Lard (1)
    - Regular Land of Lard (1)
    - Billboard (1)
    - Weather van (1)
    - Chalmer's 1979's _onda (1) (already had)
    - Bomb Shelter (1) (already had)
    - Kalash Stand (1) (already had)
    - Pond (3) (a;ready had)
    - Kearney
    - Blue Haired Lawyer

    Started with 114 donuts. Stopped when I reached 58. In-between all the prices above, I received donuts along the way. * all of the above were bought using the 6 donut mystery box.

    I'm super happy about this new Mystery Box. I've gotten everything I wanted from it, don't think I'm going to roll anymore. Lard Lads, Blue Haired Lawyer, 30 Donuts, Kearney, Channel 6 news van, then a Kvash stand and a bomb shelter. I mean, I'd LIKE a tire fire, but at this point I've already won so much more then I've spent(all with the 220 free donuts that I've earned throughout my playtime. Not a single donut purchased, ever), I don't want to press my luck by going for the tire fire and instead getting all the non-donut stuff over and over.

    On another note, I have a question(and I'm not sifting through a bunch of threads/posts to find it): Is it true that if you roll a Squeaky Voice teen/Blue Haired Lawyer/Kearney a 2nd time that you'll get the donuts they cost instead? If so, that MIGHT sway my decision to go for the tire fire, just because I'd have the chance of winning 30/60/90 donuts from getting dupes of the characters.

    Blue Haired lawyer on first box...
    News van on the second box...
    The _ONDA on the third, but I already had that... bah.
    Got the Itchy and Scratchy billboard on a fourth. Cool.

    Let's see if a Golden Scratch-R helps me get more donuts for something good. Hang on. (hum a little tune, play Xbox, get a snack, whatever... I won't be long)

    One bomb, 6 donuts for $1.05. Better get something good! Minnow pond. Bah. Ok Well, Monday is my next day for the box. Let's see what happens then. :)

    I bought another box and got 30 donuts, so I figured I'd buy a few more since I was 24 donuts up. Got a pond, onda, and lard lad. Still way ahead on value, so I'm pretty happy.
