How to get the keepsake box in Merge Mansion Thanksgiving event

While players are probably well-versed with the match patterns and items of the classic game, the new seasonal event adds a Thanksgiving twist. This means players taking part must learn a new set of matches to unlock all of the Thanksgiving items.

However, with the introduction of new items, some users are unsure of how to unlock certain items, including the keepsake box.

Luckily for Merge Mansion players, a helpful Reddit user has released a game map that explains the different merges to unlock all of the items. YouTuber CaroGamesNL has also dropped a guide on how to unlock the items too.

As explained in the map, the keepsake box is derived from the red barn, which should then should drop either a crate, a cart, or a truck. Regardless of their level, all three items should then drop either a plastic bag, spatula, or napkins. 

To continue on the path to unlocking the keepsake box, napkins is the focus. Players then must level up the napkins to level five through matching to result in a table setting which, after its timer will result in an empty Thanksgiving table.

For the next step, users must then fill the table by dropping the required items on the space to result in a full table. Once full, players then unlock the thanksgiving dinner items as the table will drop a deviled egg.

Players must then level up the dinner items to level eight before unlocking the couch. From there, you must wait through two rounds of drops before the couch transforms into the keepsake box.
