Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So EA’s added a Mystery Box element to this Event, something we first saw over the summer during the Olympic Event.
The Mystery Box is a neat element, in that it allows you to win some items from previous events…and often at a discounted rate. However, they don’t call it a Mystery Box for nothing…in that (unless you’re only missing 1 item) you don’t know what you’re going to get.
So let’s breakdown what’s inside this pumpkin filled Mystery Box…and determine if you should spend donuts to open it…
Donut Price: 60 Donuts/try
What’s Inside: Here’s what you can win…. Witch Marge & Caludron, Acorn Kirk, Donut Torture Device, HoverCopter, Squirrel Luann, the Sepulchre of Evil & the Nightmare Pile.
So should you spend the 60 donuts to get it? Well it depends on what you have inside. You see each of those items listed above is a unique item. So if you already have it in your town, it won’t appear in the Mystery Box.
I say the WitchMarge, Nightmare Pile, Acorn Kirk, Squirrel Luann and maybe the Sepulchre of Evil are worth the 60 donuts…
But the Donut Torture Device and the HoverCopter are not.
So it depends on what you have in your box. So take a look, and examine the Should I Buy posts that we have available for each item. Then decide if you’d like to add the item to your Springfield.
Here are the Should I Buy Posts for each item…
Acorn Kirk (60 donuts is a reduced price on this one, originally 70 donuts)
Donut Torture Device (Item breakdown, not a SIB BUT not with 60 Donuts IMO)
HoverCopter (Item breakdown, not a SIB BUT not worth 60 Donuts IMO)
Squirrel Luann (60 donuts is a reduced price on this one, originally 80 Donuts)
Sepulcher of Evil (60 Donuts is a reduced price on this one..it was original 225)
Nightmare Pile (60 Donuts is a reduced price on this one, it was originally 100 Donuts)
Oh and for those asking why they don’t see the Mystery Box it their town…well that’s because each of the items inside is unique. And likely you have each of the items already, since they’re all re-releases of items from Halloweens past. 🙂
What are your thoughts on the Mystery Box? What items did yours contain? Will you be taking it for a spin? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
