@SarahBeth and @BlueIndian

Sorry for the late response -- just wanted to thank you both for your replies. They were very helpful in deciding if I should bother with marketplace events for now.

Skate Ramp for 57K for mine. Same prize I had for my first marketplace event back when I first bought the Police Station. Even though I'm still not particularly interested in getting it due to its size it is nice to see that missed Grand Prizes will eventually show up again.

Yes, the prizes for the general marketplace events (the ones that are open in all professions) are just in like a big pool that the game picks from randomly for each marketplace event. The only way to remove those prizes from the pool is to unlock them. Then once you've unlocked all of the unique prizes the pool just has a handful of items that are already in the game (skeleton, Samurai armour, robo-dog, robo-cat, fondue set, time extension token, and dragon statue) that the game picks from.

Time extension token for 81,000 points for me, too. I'm going to try and complete this one because I like stocking up on the time extension tokens. But it's been a long time since I've done a marketplace event so I might forget about it.

Good to know. I was pretty sure they could include any limited time prize I'd missed since one of my first couple was one of them, but wasn't sure beyond those.

Yeah, not all limited time prizes are potential marketplace prizes but a good amount of them are. And then others that you miss out on are added to the Fortune Box in the Mystery Box Shop as "Rare" prizes.

Fondue set...I was hoping for a time extension token cuz I just spent my only one a few days ago on the Stranger Things discovery quest. I forgot to check back in on the last task before time was up
