What was in your last mystery box?

  • Donuts. Don't remember how many.

    But now I know who I'm taking to Vegas. If I ever go.

    Disappointment.
    Yeah, I get that a lot as well.
    I wanted to do it yesterday but I will invariably do it tomorrow (ish).

    Had a look at the table below, (cannot remember who originally posted it), but it predicted my next MB would be 30 Donuts.

    So I took a punt and bought an MB.
    Which means, now:

    I&S Billboard.
    Chalmers 'Onda.
    Minnow Pond.
    Lard Lad Donuts.
    30 Donuts. Bought.
    Chalmers 'Onda.
    Minnow Pond.
    News Van.
    30 Donuts. Bought.

    But where does it place me in the table??? It could be in one of two places???

    So what pattern am I playing???
    Is it the Charles one or the other one???

  • It's the Wadebear pattern!
    Your next 6 draws will be Shelter, Klav, Van, 10, Shelter, Klav
    Followed by either: Shelter, Klav, Van, 10, Shelter, Klav
    or: Billboard, 10, Shelter, Klav, Billboard, Onda, Minnow, Lard, Billboard, Onda, Minnow, Van, 30, Onda, Minnow, Van, 30, Shelter, Klav, Van, 10, Shelter, Klav
    But I still haven't got enough data to work out a repeating pattern yet.
    Here's a spreadsheet of the total data that I've collected expressed with 1 character for each item, color coded.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa – I only accept cash, bitcoin, or GameStop stock.

    What? The colors? It only takes a couple of minutes using the Find All function. Then 1 click and everything you Found is colored.
  • Not the colors, the large data set, donuts spent, and so on. Impressive

  • The donuts were all farmed with Kwik-E-Marts and Rat Trap Trucks.
    The data was collected over a period of a couple of months - usually in sets of 98 boxes at a time (298 donuts).
    The data entry is pretty easy when you only have to hit one key and Tab to the next cell.
    The hard part: Keeping track so I have accurate data. I had to come up with an accounting system for when I made mistakes or Bart Screened. And I made mistakes. And Oh Boy did I Bart Screen! So I'd have to go count the number of Bomb Shelters (etc) I'd produced in my current run and match things up.
    The impressive part? I'm doing this for THREE towns. Of course the other 2 towns have the @girl22721 pattern so I can just copy and paste the data then tap through it with arrow keys. But still...

    @frosted1414 got it. *Thumb up emoji*.

  • Hey, I'm glad that players are still finding my chart useful. I don't buy lots of mystery boxes anymore, so wouldn't know if they changed things. I did notice back in the day you can get repeated items if your game drops connection or crashes at an opportune moment after a purchase, preventing it from saving your progress correctly, in which case it just resumes the pattern after the items that accidentally got repeated. Otherwise it doesn't matter whether you buy the boxes continually or take breaks, as the place within a sequence persists in normal circumstances.

    Yes indeedy, I have found your chart useful. And the payouts I get match what you outlined in 3 of the towns I'm playing. It used to match the 4th game, but since returning from a 2 year absence a few months ago I discovered that it had changed to the payout pattern I linked to in the previous post. It's similar to but does not quite match the so called "Charles" pattern I found elsewhere. "Charles" either didn't continue working the pattern out or has a different one than what I'm getting, so I'm charting it to see if I can find a repeating pattern.
  • Does the system still work...? I spent about 150 donuts on mystery boxes and got a measly 1 newsvan and 2 billboards... I.e. almost 40 donuts per 1% bonus!

    It's still working for me in the only game I'm doing it. My test game (Motorola) has the girl22721 pattern and my last several payouts were KMSO3B_LKM, just as predicted.
    150 donuts should have gotten you 25 pulls. You're on the other pattern, which would cover roughly a pattern of BOMLBOMV3OKV3SKV1SKB1MLBO.
    Are you sure you kept track properly? When I'm Boxing I put them in an area to themselves so I can double check what I got.
    Did you maybe store some by mistake? I've done that.
    I haven't pulled enough MBs on that pattern to get a repeating set yet. Maybe there's a lull area?
  • I hope you're right! I have stopped keeping track as it was a bit onerous to do so, but with the 150 or so donuts I spent I got 3 or so 10 donuts, 2 lard lads, 1 news van and 2 billboards. The rest was rubbish!
  • Channel 6 News van from mystery box I won completing daily challenges. 1605% bonus multiplier now.
  • Khlav Kalash stand. I sold it.

    I got another Lards Lads for completing 5 Daily Challenges in a row.

    So for the last three mystery boxes I have obtained Lard Lads, Itchy and Scratchy billboard, another Lard Lads.


    I am not sure not what pattern I am following.

    I still haven't got either 10 or 30 donuts from a mystery box for ages now.
  • I won 30 donuts in my last mystery box from the daily challenges.
