  1. I think I’d feel remiss without Helter Skelter. We have vampires, werewolves, mummies, the Frankensteins, zombies and a witch. A skeleton rounds out the set.

    I got the “Sepulcher of Evil” in the Mystery Box and I noticed that it look similar to “Ancient Ruins”. Are they affect one another or are they linked in some way?

  3. I got the ruins because I wanted bonus percentage.

  4. Helter Skeleter / Ancient Ruins

    Pass on both! I advocate spending your Sprinkles on the new Jack-o-Lantern Mystery Box that just popped up today (for 50 Donuts I just got Witch Marge and Cauldron – thank you EA!) 🎃😀

  5. Witch Marge offered again! Does the Speed Up Crops actually speed up crops? If so I wish I had it back when I acquired Brandine!

  6. Witch Marge and the Cauldron! Woo-hoo! 5 years of waiting!
    all is well with the world.

  7. I’m calling foul! Not only have I missed out on the pet (s)emetery by virtue of having one of the NPCs, i’ve Missed out on witch Marge due to purchasing the cauldron last year, assuming the witch Marge skin would come with it.

    Not cool!

  8. I’ve hit that mid-act drag… someone give me some motivation to keep at it in comments here plz!

  9. I got both 😀 I’m sure the ancient ruins will find a place somewhere in my town!
