Party of the Decade Celebrations

Anniversary Nightclub Quest
First things first, Simmers! It’s time to get your dancing shoes on and head to the Sim Town Nightclub. Boogie with the Game Team Sims to receive free birthday presents, every second day! (In total there are 7 gifts.) They’ve got exclusive gifts to give you that have never been released in the game as a memento – from non-playable Sim outfits like Ice Queen’s ballgown and gloves, to décor and Build/Buy items like a 10th birthday cake and balloons!
You might even recognise some of the Game Team Sims hanging out at the nightclub. They’re our famous SimGuru team that chat to our community on Twitter – Marketing Megan (aka SimGuruMegz), Producer Danni (aka SimGuruIceFox), Designer Rhys (aka SimGuruRhys), Quality Verification Lachie (aka SimGuruGrumpyCat) and more. Note: You’ll be able to claim the prizes right to the end of the event. The Game Team Sims will stay in the nightclub dancing on the d-floor until you’ve redeemed their gifts up until December 15.

Mystery Box Keys – 10 for 10!
When you first log in from the 3rd until 12th of December you’ll receive 10 Mystery Box Keys, to be used in the 'Mystery Box Shop' in the 'Weekly Tasks' section of the Active Tasks Menu and claim a Mystery Box. (You need to open the game between 3rd and 12th of December.)

Community Contest – get outfit planning now! And Looking to the Future
You can find infos at the official article here

Here’s a screenshot of the first popup in the game.
Looks like the birthday gift is only available until December 12th. I have changed the opening post accordingly.

I just noticed the glasses. Thought maybe I'd missed them somehow and they'd arrived with some outfits and I'd failed to notice. I've wanted more "normal", everyday glasses for all ages for some time. So far, only adult females though.

These are the coins you can spend in the gift shop. Currently they are double if you start Influence Island 20 in those 2 days.

Thanks. I think you mean the influence event gift shop? I noticed I was earning tokens faster but thought they'd changed the event structure as so many players couldn't finish Influence events. At least players now have a better chance of getting the progress prizes. I wish the change was permanent.

The slog to the grand prize seems longer though with all progress prizes won so early. I'm trying hard as these seem to be the only "real" Christmas theme prizes this year.

I’m with you there! It’s very frustrating trying to finish this without spending SP. I have won the all of the minor prizes thanks to this boost. The main prize however that depends on converting 7 island inhabitants is still very far from my reach 😟

10 € for this pack? I wouldn’t purchase this even if I couldn’t get the items in game anymore ^^ Maybe, if it would cost LPs like the houses that appear in Online Store.
