Time Capsule Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

With the time Travel Event EA is letting us take not only a trip back in World History but also a trip back in TSTO history…with items from TSTO events past in the Time Capsule Mystery Box!

This is a premium box full of your change to get those limited-time premium character/building/decorations with a Western flair to them.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside..

First, let me point out that this is just one of THREE Mystery Boxes that are slated to be released before this event is over.  This theme is more Western Stuff, the next one will go Medieval and the last one is for 4th of July.  They other two will hit later in the event (and yes, I’ll write posts just like this one for those two…so please don’t ask.  They’re already on my to do list..) 

And…if you already have everything in the box you’ll get the popup but you won’t see the box in your store. 

So for 80 donuts you can have your shot at a variety of Western Themed premium characters and buildings from the past, most of them are from last year’s Wild West Event.  80 Donuts is less than the initial value for each item…

Time Capsule Mystery Box Leaves Games June 14th…

Here’s what you can win…

Wes Doobner’s Rib Hut- Originally a Prize during Wild West.  So this is one we don’t have a previous donut cost on.  But based on what we know about Skin/building combos 80 donuts is a decent priced.  This is a SKIN for Sideshow Bob, not a new character. Details.

Hootenanny Barn- Should I Buy, comes with Luke Stetson (Full character) and was originally 100 donuts.

Mount Carlmore- Should I Buy, typically always in the game.  Regularly 120 donuts and offers a 3.5% bonus

Sneed’s Feed and Seed- Should I Buy, Originally 90 donuts

Wild West Film Set- Should I Buy, Originally 150 donuts comes with Film Set (acts like a building, with visual animation) AND Buck McCoy, full character. 

Frink’s Mechano Spider- Should I Buy, Originally 130 donuts, offers 3.5% bonus. 

Old Mine- Should I Buy, Originally 180 donuts, offers a 4% bonus.

Now, while I know you can’t pick and choose which items you want from the box, I included the Should I Buy posts from the past so y’all can see how much they originally cost & what specifically each building/character does.

80 Donuts is a bargain for any of these items…as they originally all were more than 80 donuts (especially for a couple of those character combos and decorations).  So it’s certainly worth giving it a try if you have the donuts and want the items!

And that’s it my friends!  The details on the Time Capsule Mystery Box….

What are your thoughts on the Mystery Box? Have you tried it yet? What have you won so far? What do you hope to get? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

    Really liked this mystery box so I tried it once and got really lucky as I wanted the hootenanny barn w/ Luke Stetson and ended up getting it, which is great as I regretted passing this one up when it first became available. Very happy with my results.

    I’ve take three (3) passes, wanting the Fil Set or Hootenanny Bar
    First I got Sneeds – meh!
    THEN Imgot the Mine Ride and increased my multiplier
    THEN I got the Spider and AGAIN increased my multiplier
    If I go again I’ll probably get More not Cal and AGAIN increase my multiplier
    I tell ya’ it’s rigged, just ‘ain’t fair.
    But then I’ll have to get one of my two preferences

      Yeah! Got the Film Set. Perhaps Mount Carl would be better as it increases my multiplier, but the Film Set goes well with my other Film Set and next to my Film Studios and Old West Town.
      Now I just need more land to bette display these..


  3. I was super lucky. The only item I didn’t want was Sneed’s, and I already had Wes from last year. Managed to get everything else. Between that and the donut boat and truck, my % bonus increased tremendously.


  4. I “won” Wes Doobner, waiting to build his rib shack. Did I read somewhere that this isn’t a character it’s a skin for sideshow bob?


  5. I won Luke Stetson, but unfortunately hide questline didnt Start. Any idea, why?

    I am a freemium player and am saving up for some pirate content and a mystery box so I can be sure not to miss out on that. I am going to get Blackbeard if he is for sale and hopefully have enough donuts left over for a pirate mystery box too


  7. Do you know if all of the items have the same percentage to be won? So if I have 5 items I can open, there is a 20% chance of getting each. Or do different items get weighted differently based on original donut cost? I seem to always get the cheapest least desirable item every time.


    • Tracy - 1ltwoody920

      First pass, I got the cheapest
      Second pass, I got one of the most expensive
      Third pass, I got middle of the road – leaning towa d expensive.

      My experience does not equal that which others might.


  8. I just tried it, the Mechano Spider (which I really wanted) was on the far left and that is exactly what I got. Mount Carlmore is on the left and I’d gladly take that, should I go for it??? What say you?


    • If donuts aren’t too much of an issue, I believe Carlmore is one of the vault choices. If you don’t want to risk it, you could wait till then and get it for rebate.


  9. i got buck, the old mine, and the spider. the western themed items are my fav, i’m stoked!
