New Addition: Mystery Boxes

Today (October 21st), Zynga, the creators of Facebook’s Farmville added another new feature to the Market.

Mystery Boxes can be bought for $15, and contain items that cannot be purchased or received through any other means. Unfortunately, all these items are decorative i.e. there’s no special animal or tree that can be harvested.

After buying the Mystery Box, you can choose to either leave it as is – a decoration in itself – or open it to find the goodies within.

Here’s a list of the known Mystery Box gifts so far:

  • red bicycle
  • striped rest chair
  • lounge chair
  • picnic table with tablecloth
  • fire pit
  • tree with swing
  • hot tub
  • golden gnome

If you see or find any other Mystery Gifts, please comment and we’ll add them to the list.
