Adding Fortune Cookies, which contain random items from specific and exclusive time-limited sets, has changed the game forever. Premium Fortune Cookies items include, new furniture, clothing and even larger props. The Props allow you to open special scenes not seen in the story. This is done along with your friends.
Each premium Fortune Cookies costs 50 Leaf Tickets. There are three flavors available to choose from. Each Cookies comes with their own range of themed items. This current batch will last for two months, after that they will disappear. Purchasing a premium Fortune Cookie will get you a stamp on a card. Collecting 10 stamps will fill the card.
