My prize is the samurai armor, which I already have and don't like. My rugs previewed as light blue circles on a navy background, but when I got them, they were identical to the navy circles rugs I already have - white background with navy circles. Is this a mistake? Something I should submit a ticket for? I thought the rugs were all supposed to be new?

One interesting thing with this event... One of my couriers gave TWO tokens! Never saw that before.

Has anyone had their courier walk off because you were late. This morning I had almost completed the third task which is 2 hours. Because I was taking my grandchildren to school I was over an hour late. When I clicked on the courier he just walked off. This also happened the last time. I have 4 boxes anyway so I will ignore him in future.

Yes I think I have encountered that a few times. In short all the 4 tasks have to accomplished within 4 hours.

The blue circles/navy circles mix up is a mistake. Submitting a ticket for it could help FM realize there's a problem faster. If they don't know it's a problem they can't fix it and because we all aren't getting those rugs at the same time I could see it taking a long time for them to realize it's a bug.

From my experience, all 4 tasks just have to be started within 4 hours.

My experience has been like playsims. I had all but the 2 hour courier task done once but the courier's timer was 1:30 left. He left once his timer got to 0:00 while my sims had 30 minutes left on the 2 hour task. As long as you have all the tasks completed within the 4 hour window you will still get the token, though. Even if you collect when the 4 hours is up.

Today I forgot I had a courier in the hospital, I used sp for the 1hr task and started the 2hrs, I waited there was only 1 hr remaining, when the time was over the courier left. I noticed when you are like less than 20 min short you get the token otherwise the courier leaves.

Ah, maybe that's it. I just started one on the 2hr task with 1h49 remaining on the courier, and I will probably not be able to check back in between the courier's clock expiring and the task finishing, but I do expect to receive that coin.

Hmm, well I guess I don't get a 20 minute grace period in my game. The courier couldn't be bothered to stick around an extra minute and 7 seconds to let my sim finish helping him. :(
