Gift Safe House v2.0; Mafia Wars Strategy Guide

As I posted about earlier today, the Gift Safe House is once again active. However, it is a bit different this time around.

First off, there is two versions floating around. One group of people's gift house is working just fine - they can open received gifts for free. For others, they have to pay 2 godfather points to open up each gift (even if they received a gift for free). After further review, I can't find a reason why some people have to pay while other players can open the gifts for free.

With that said, the contents of the new free gifts appears to be the same. People have once again found a large variety of items spanning across a variety of old limited edition pieces, crate pieces, and weekend loot events. Here is a loot list:


Scalper's Hatchet
Baby Face Nelson's .351
EMP Bomb
Nambu Type 14 Pistol
Hunting Knife
Ushanka
Parma
Mesh Trucker Hat
Wild Mustang
Tigershark Submersible
Chariot
Reciprocating Saw
Scalper's Hatchet
Knuckle Duster
Capone's Armored 341A
Pearl-Handled Revolver (Weapon) - 40 Attack 10 Defense
EMP Bomb (weapon) - 4 Attack 32 Defense
Ocular Implants (Armor) - 25 Attack 26 Defense
Tiger Tank (Vehicle) - 18 Attack 48 Defense
Ronin Motorbike - 36A 14D
Hoja Doble (weapon) - 30 attack 16 defense
CM Dragon (vehicle) 40 attack, 18 defense

..and I am sure there are more items (feel free to post if you see them).

  1. Weird. I never got a package like that and I can open all mine for free. Yet I have another account where I also didn't get a package yet have to pay the 2 points.

  2. Got no such reperation package and still have to pay 2 pts to open each gift. Not true for me at least.

  3. Got two accounts, one pays 2 gf to open, the other opens for free. FRUSTRATING AS HECK

  4. Two accounts, and neither one will allow asking for gifts, both say you have run out of requests. And damn the reperation package sounds nice, how badly was mafia wars for you to get it if I didn't. If it was much worse I would've quite playing and it only forgot half my gifts.

  5. Have the same problem. On my wife account, the gift is free. However in my account should pay 2 GF. I send a complaint to Zynga and they only answer don't open if you don't want to spend 2 GF. I also can't ask for a gift from other player. The most interesting one is I can re-open the initial gift from MW, of course with 2GF. LOL

  7. I have been getting that stuff listed plus stuff like the Liger, tigershark submersble, laser squirrel, Kraken, Gravy boat, Ghillie suit. All in all the gifts from what I seen are from past crates. very nice. As so far i have 5-Chariot's, 4-CM Dragons, 4-Ghillie Suits, 7-Ronin Moterbikes just to name a few things, so this is very nice, BUT I think this is Zynga's way of saying sorry but it will be a bit longer for bangkok

  8. in my farming account i get them for free, its all working properly, in my main account i have to pay 2gf points each for the gifts i received.

    but i dont really care, since these items are almost always weaker than the loot i already collected, theyre basically all either plugging up my account or just nice decoration, depending on how you look at it.

  10. Zynga seems to be playing a game of "how far can we push it" with the special currencies in their games. I don't play many of them, but I know that in Fishville and Farmville they've been putting in a LOT of special currency content with no other option for acquiring it besides paying (or slowly accruing special currency by levelling up, or getting mystery crates and such)

    So I'm guessing the 2 godfather point opening fee is an attempt to guage reactions on how poorly received that feature is.

    Zynga is playing a dangerous game in my opinion. They're turning off a LOT of players who hate the idea of not being able to get all the content for free, yet at the same time I'm sure they're raking in money hand over fist so they probably won't stop doing it until they've already sank themselves.

  11. I never got reparations from Zynga, and I'm one of the unlucky ones who can only open gifts in the Safe House by using 2 GF points each.

    Tonight I logged on and found that my ten gifts in the Safe House are now listed as being "Free", but when I click on any of them, I get the message that I have no gifts to open. Hmmmmm....

  17. It says that if you collect 10 unopened gifts you'd get a bonus. Has anyone gotten it yet? I'd love to know--I'm curious if it's worth the wait?
