Me too and now I have surplus gift boxes to store until next year!


At GMT rollover tonight I intend to make a note of how many gift boxes I have & how many HOS's I have completed.It would be great if others could do the same so that at the start of the next Winter Event we could try to work out the drop rate.Thank you.

Some time back, gohill determined that it takes about 40,000 HOS visits to get 1,000 of the Gift for a Friend boxes..... She actually got her 1,000th one at around 38,000 ..... others also kept track for several months and determined that her estimate of one every 38 HOSs (on average) is spot on.

This is an average, of course ..... you may go 200 rooms and not get any....followed by one dropping nearly every other HOS .... but the percentage holds true for everyone who checked.

Roo, I think it's still worthwhile to check if the drop rate remains the same, & your idea is a good way to check. I'll join you.

Yes, I agree.....and as a result....now that I have finally finished my PC rooms, I have a count of both of them on PC and of both on my iPad game.....

Since we don't know the start day of the WE next year ...... and since we will probably all be agog and busy with that seasonal event......how about one of us post on December 1st the count we have? That should be a good indication of whether the percentage remains the same or has changed -- yes? no?
