Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So this morning I want to talk to you about something that’s VERY different with this update, something in your favor! I want to talk to you about the Easter Boxes!
I know what many of you are thinking…it’s the holiday wheel just in box form! But guess what? It’s not! What if I told you, as long as you play the game and collect eggs you are guaranteed to collect ALL of the prizes, with out spending a single donut on eggs?
Impossible? Nope. I’m telling you EA listened to YOU (to ALL of us) with this update! They heard your complaints during the wheel events about the odds, and they did something about it!
Let’s take a look at how the odds come into play with these new prize boxes….
So with this update EA has broken everyone up into two groups of Tappers. You can either be in the Blue Egg Group or the Pink Egg Group. Whichever group you’re in will impact your odds in the Pink and Blue Boxes ONLY, the Gold Boxes have the same odds for both groups. So just what are these odds? Let’s take a look:
Pink Easter Box:
|Prizes||Blue Group||Pink Group|
|Chirpy & Bart Jr||2%||5%|
|Beach Towel & Umbrella||15%||12.5%|
|300 Gold Eggs||45%||0%|
|100 Gold Eggs||0%||45%|
Blue Easter Box:
|Prizes||Blue Group||Pink Group|
|The Egg Council Guy||5%||2%|
|Easter Egg Pile||12.5%||15%|
|300 Gold Eggs||0%||45%|
|100 Gold Eggs||45%||0%|
Now you’re sitting there saying “But you said I was guaranteed to win EVERYTHING, those odds look like I’m screwed…again!”
Have no fear…the top 2 “big” prizes in each box have “guaranteed to be awarded by try #” built into it. What does that mean? Well basically it means at a certain # of tries if you haven’t unlocked it yet it’s guaranteed to unlock for you! Note: There are also minimum number of tries before it unlocks too. Meaning you won’t be awarded the prizes before a certain number of tries.
Here’s that break down and it’s the same no matter which egg group you’re in:
|Item||Box||Min Attempts||Max Attempts|
|Chirpy & Bart Jr||Pink||12||80|
|The Egg Council Guy||Blue||12||81|
So what this means is…if on attempt 79 in the Pink Easter Box you still haven’t earned the Block-O-Store and Chirpy & Bart Jr you are GUARANTEED to unlock Chirpy & Bart Jr on your next try. THEN you will also unlock the Block-O-Store on the very next attempt after unlocking Chirpy & Bart Jr. Pretty sweet right?
So now the million dollar question….how do you know which group you’re in? It’s actually pretty simple…the game tells you. There are a few key things to look for in your game to determine what group you are in. (remember this won’t come into play until you’ve unlocked the Easter goodies…after the 24hr Whacking Day quests)
First indicator…look to see what color egg you are awarded when you complete Tasks. If you’re awarded 250 Pink Eggs you’re in the Pink Group, if you’re awarded 250 Blue Eggs you’re in the Blue Group. Also, the color of the eggs awarded for completing character tasks will indicate this.
The next indicator…check how your eggs are shown in the bottom left of your main Springfield. If it goes Blue, Pink, Gold you’re in the Blue Group, like this:
If it goes Pink, Blue, Gold you’re in the Pink Group, like this:
Simple enough right? All this grouping means is it’s easier for you to unlock the prizes in the box for the color group you’re in. But remember you’re guaranteed to unlock all of the prizes, no matter what group you’re in.
Let’s move on to the Gold Easter Box odds. Keep in mind these odds are the SAME for Tappers in the Pink Group AND Blue Group. The Golden Easter Box contains the rare, and sought after, Easter content, so these odds are a little tougher than the Pink or Blue boxes. Here’s how it breaks down:
|Pastel Picket Fence||31%|
Now you might be asking…”Am I guaranteed to win all of this stuff too?!” and the answer is YES. Just like the other boxes, the sought after prizes have min and max unlock attempt numbers. Here’s the breakdown on those:
|Item||Min Attempts||Max Attemps|
As you can see most of the items are pretty easy to obtain, as you’ll unlock them with minimal attempts! Of course Shary Bobbins (my personal favorite!) will be the hardest to unlock, but would you expect anything less?
So that’s in on the Prize Box Odds my friends! Now let’s take a little poll and see what group you’re in. Let us know if you’re in the Pink Group or the Blue Group:
