Mystery Boxes (often called red tool boxes, hence the types of items awarded to the player) appear randomly in Hay Day and contain various helpful items. There are many different types of Mystery Boxes.

Mystery Tool Boxes

A Mystery Tool Box

Mystery Tool Boxes are red, chained tool boxes "popping" out of the ground in the farm area. If a box is locked, which is often the case, players can open it by spending diamonds, sometimes they cost 3 and others 5. Once the box has been opened or rejected, it disappears into the ground. Boxes can contain:

  • Supplies (except for building supplies needed for the town)
  • Coins (anywhere from 50 to several thousand, increases slowly with level)
  • Any type of voucher
  • 5 diamonds
  • Expansion Permit
  • Boosters

Strategy tips

Don't forget to check for Treasure Chests. Many of us find Mystery Boxes on the Farms of other players, but don't forget to look in their Town to find Treasure Chests floating off shore.

If a Mystery Tool Box is found on your own farm, it is very likely for one to be found on another farm at the same time. The same is true vice versa.
