Concept for next gem event:
Instead of mystery boxes there is a gem event store
WIth tiers of different items you can pick and choose what items you want from the gem event store.
You guys can set the prices to whatever ridiculous prices you want, but allow players to choose what items the purchase with gems.
Keep in mind we will complain if the prices are too high
The tiers unlock with each progression like usual
If you want the luck of the draw gamble then players can buy spins on the gem wheel for additional gems to buy

Just a basic concept that may make players happier. You could also keep the old mystery boxes too for those who want to try their luck

SOOOOOOOOO we can spend more to get the same items someone else is getting for less....!!?????? WOW You can call that MAGIC I call that...……..cant say that here......NOT HAPPY !!!!! Its Christmas not Halloween …..still I feel like I was tricked.. Got a cheap sugar free piece of candy... :?: :shocked: :'(

I had exactly the same thing happen to me. Maybe it just "grabs" the first available new item, which in our case happened to be from the 50 gem chest. I'm sure if I would have tried to get something first from the 50 gem chest, it would not have been the new elf shoes. So I feel your pain.


UGH, I wondered what the "magic" was and am glad I know now. So sorry that happened to you gals, I thought it would guarantee an Epic prize for that amount of gems. :sleepy:

I LOVE this idea! I would much rather be able to pick a piece of furniture than get a surprise onesie. Or even be able to choose a few of the same chair, rather than only getting one and having to pay a fortune for another, or ask friends for theirs. No one comes to events anymore, it seems.

Please implement Ember's wonderful ideas! :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Agreed! The ability to "choose" a prize with my "funds" (gems) that I won via my contest score is much more appealing than single point gambling! This way if I did well but I want a bunch of 50 gem items I can get them! Or if I just want a couple more expensive items I can do that too! :rose: Edit: I would keep the costs at 50 and 150 gems with *perhaps* the new tier cost you just introduced being for gold/legendary items if they are unique! (ONLY if they are unique!) I would still not put unpopular in-store items as prizes! I would maybe make more unique items but they don't have to be Shabby Chic or Bohemian. Just nice basic UNIQUE furniture items! (But PLEASE give us nice stuff in the store too! Or do limited time releases of gem event items we voted for?)

It just means it will be any of the 'New' Items, from any tier. I bought one and got the 'New' elf shoes on the Common Tier. :wailing:

NEW: Click on any unlocked item in the Rewards tab to see the item name!

You can now delete Challenge Rooms if you want to!!!


Thank you for the free avenue and thank you very much for the new additions to the Gem Event!

I'm so happy for the Magic Chest! Some people are complaining that 50 gem items can be found in the Magic Chests, but I'd rather spend 230 gems and be GUARANTEED a new item than keep spending 50 or 150 gems at a time for garbage that is in the store. Thank you thank you thank you for allowing the opportunity to get only new items! This is huge for me! :heart:

It could have been worse. You could have spent more gems than that and only got garbage from the store.

Hi guys! I have a couple of clarifications for all of ya :heart:

1. The Magic Chest is intended to be a way for you all to get only new Event-exclusive items if you so choose, which is an improvement made in direct response to many YoFans' feedback. It will prevent duplicates in the same way as the other Chests - in fact, the Event will notify you any time you will receive a duplicate prize, and allow you to choose whether or not you would like to proceed. This will allow you to decide whether or not you'd like to chance receiving in-store items through the other two Chests (which do contain these new Event-exclusives as well) or only new items :)

2. Muppetgal! I had our team check your entry. It looks like the first screenshot, which (if I'm reading correctly this morning, which is not guaranteed :haha: ) is what you intended. Something must have hiccuped and the room showed you either a previous state of the room, or items from the room that you were returning to after saving.

3. We'll be looking into ways we might be able to allow you all to see your entry after submitting, to try to prevent any unnecessary stress caused by the above :heart:


If I come across more answers or helpful explanations for anything in this thread, I'll come back to post it! :hug:

Thanks for further explanation, there is one thing I haven't understood and is about the notification for duplicate prize.
Is this supposed to work with any kind of chest?
The notification will be a pop-up?
Sorry to bother but as I haven't seen this notification yet I haven't understood how works.

Not a bother at all! :heart:

The pop-up will appear if you try to open a Chest that you've already received all available unique items from. Here's what it looks like:

To avoid getting a duplicate, either try another Chest, or do more Hang Outs to unlock your next tier :)

Vikings: Thank you so much for listening to our feedback about the new items only and implementing changes so quickly. I am really impressed and appreciative of that. :hug: :thumbsup:

I love that we now have an option to purchase Magic Chests which guarantee all NEW items - that is a great way to solve the issue of not wanting to get in store items for our gems. :thumbsup:

Here comes my *but*, lol. My only reservation is the cost of the new Magic Chest. I think 230 makes it , not *value for gem* as it will require more YC to fill up the bar just to be able to unleash two new items per go- around. If it were like say 200 gems, although you would still only get 2 rounds with a filled up bar, but it would cost slightly less to reload the gem bar. Each yocash represents real money that we are spending and I understand and accept the principle that if a player wants to get New Items only, then we need to pay premium for that option, but at the same time I don't want to feel like I am being fleeced (especially if that 230 gem box uncovers a New 50 gem item - that's a bitter pill to swallow and is another form of gambling). This new box should be able to make both the player and the *ringing YC tills* at BVG feel happy at the compromise. Right now it doesn't for me, with this cost level. o_o o_o

Thank you again, for delivering another YAWL aspect to the gem event :D :star: :)

Is anyone else having problems decorating? Things aren't staying where they are placed, a grabbed item turns into something else, it's very shaky and the layering changes with each new item. It's very annoying. I can't even finish my challenge room. :grr
