Gift Safe House - Extra Gifts and Loot

This iteration of the Mafia Wars Gift Safe House is definitely dropping better loot than the previous version. Personally, I have been getting Tiger Tanks (48 defense) and Chariots (48 attack) with high frequency. I'm not the only one either; one of the readers, Randy, has found 11 Chariots and 13 Tiger Tanks so far:


You can see from the order of the vehicles that Randy found all 13 Tiger Tanks from the gift house - since the Moscow loot weekend (which originally had the Tiger Tanks) came before the Kraken was released, yet in the picture the Tiger Tank appears later.

Additionally, Randy has another great tip that will allow you to get extra free gifts. Here's how to do it:

Step 1:

Send 15-20 free gift requests to your friends (do not max out at 24).

Step 2:

Again, open the gift request tab and this time only send out 15 requests. At first, the Facebook interface only shows that you are sending out 4 requests (if you sent 20 originally). However, when you hit the send button, you get a confirmation that gift requests were sent to all 15 recipients. While I'm not sure if the gift request actually gets sent, it certainly can't hurt!

In other news, I just saw another new Mafia Wars Bangkok Facebook ad. There's less than 2 weeks left in January, so Bangkok must be imminent!

  2. Yesterday my Gift House said "collect 10 gifts to receive a Special Bonus". I collected 10 today and received no bonus--anyone else had that?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I had that "receive a bonus" thing as well. I think it is just some follow-over scripts from the last gifting time where you got that bonus.

    But when I refreshed it all went away. So I think it was just a glitch.

  6. Hey! New 25 GF points item is a ROYAL WHITE ELEPHANT! Does this mean bangkok is coming soon? because Elephants + Bangkok??

  7. Royal White Elephant is a sure thing I would think as they had the Rainy Day (ATTACK)38 (DEFENSE)22
    on Jan 18th and took it off fast and put the Elephant on.

    Also this is Randy from that pic and you can add 1 more Tank, 2 more Chariots and 2 more Krakens, and 3 more Dragons from gifts today.
    I did get the Elephant as well

  11. I have to yell out for personal reasons that I HATE the safe house! Even when I have notified Zynga that I don't get to claim any of my gifts ever (They get sent back from friends but sorry I have no gifts from that person)...no reply. Glad everyone else is receiving gifts though which is why I keep sending people them back. No point in being bitter, but I did need to vent out into the abyss that SAFE HOUSE SUCKS FOR ME! All better.
