So I opened the Fortune Box. I didn't do the save, repeat, thing... I am OK with what I got, although I am not sure if it was worth a 10 week wait (not a single magma ember!)

Here is what I got:
Simoleons - 3,000 / 3,500 / 2,000 = 8,500 total
XP - 2,000 / 1,500 / 1,500 / 2,000 / 2,500 = 9,500 total - I like this
LP - 6 / 8 / 5 / 5 / 5 / 5 / 6 = 40 is good, half a reindeer!
SP - 8 / 6 - not really using any SP now, have over 100 but saving them for redecorating houses
Bamboo - 2 (don't need those)
Limestone - 3 (don't need those either)
Igneous Rock - 3 (ditto)
Wind - 3 OK, I guess, would rather have had magma embers
"Rare" Items - 1 tan triple garden screen, 1 floral breeze fan (don't really care about those)

Not sure if it's worth it - I probably spent 40 LP skipping 24 hour goals over the last few weeks. I just won't do them. I also won't do the enemy type goals. Maybe if the resources were the rarer ones, it would be worth it, but I don't know if i will continue working for keys.
i appreciate the fortune box for the LP and SP that was given... I do the save and repeat to try to get the best LP and SP returns...

When you do this, is there a cycle? Like, does it repeat at some point or is it just random? In other words, can you run thru all your choices or do you just take the best deal at some point. I almost have the last key and I'm trying to figure out how, when, do I know I have the best deal. Advice?

purely random...

XP, simoleons, LP, SP and resources are confirmed items that will appear from fortune box (that's the only type of box I opened), follow by rare items which are home store items usually have to be bought by LP or SP.

For me, rare items are not really a concern, but I care more about LP/SP. So if I get a decent amount of LP/SP, I will accept the box, else I will reset, download and open again... ;)

I finally reached ten keys and got the fortune box tonight, after missing a few weeks' deadlines. Here's what I got:

XP: 2000, 2500, 1500, 2000, 2000, 2000 = 12,000
SP: 4, 25, 4 = 33
LP: 6, 6, 5, 5, 8, 5, 5, 5, 5 = 50
TV show cameo x1
Limestone x1
Magazine photoshoot x3
Gravity dining chair x1
Tokyo dining table x1

The last two 'rare' items I could do without. As I am still working on enough resources for the sim town sign, those and the LPs are appreciated. I'm just not sure it's worth all the time and effort though!

Opened my 10 keys and decided to look at another. That one had 46 LP but silly "rare" items.. Like two beds. So I want to reset again but I won't let me. Says it matches with current game. So I'm going to bed. Deal with it tomorrow. *sighs*

Usually you save twice, via FB and GC within short time, right? Most time when I want to download, I can do it from one of both accounts. I only log out from the current, then log in to the other.

If you still cannot download from the cloud-button, tap the button with three dots and lines, then the red button "reset". You will be asked, whether you want to start a new game, or download from the cloud. Choose download; then it goes the same way like from the cloud button.

Hope this makes sense :?

I got the 10 key box recently. I got a lounge chair with blue stripes and a higher end closet which isn't that great but I also got 50 LPs when I added it together so it was worth waiting for.
