Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another Mystery Box in Springfield…

Since the introduction of the Yearbook Mystery Box last year, most of the event-specific boxes have become outdated. As many of the items are in the Yearbook box for much less.

However, with the Wrestling Mystery Box released with this event, you can unlock items for a token on the prize track (4 total unlocks available).  So basically it’s a free Mystery Box.

Let’s break it down…

Another day, another Mystery Box in Springfield…

Since the introduction of the Yearbook Mystery Box last year, most of the event-specific boxes have become outdated. As many of the items are in the Yearbook box for much less.

Abe’s in Toyland Mystery Box Breakdown: Winter Wonderland and Happy Holidays

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another event in Springfield as Christmas has fallen upon our pocket-sized towns! And it wouldn’t be an event without a Mystery Box, now would it?

Since the introduction of the Yearbook Mystery Box back in March, most of the event-specific boxes have become outdated. As many of the items are in the Yearbook box for much less.

However, with this event…more specifically the Winder Wonderland Mystery Box, that’s not necessarily true.  As EA has added new-old content to this box.  So let’s take a quick look at what’s inside both the Happy Holidays Box and the Winter Wonderland Box…

Black Friday 2019 Mystery Box Round-Up- The Gold Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The other day I broke down the items in all of the Mystery Boxes for donuts…now it’s time to breakdown the items for tokens in the Gold Box.

This one’s a pretty big deal, because to get a bulk of tokens you’ll need to actually spend money on donuts.  So it’s important to know which items are ONLY in the Gold Box, and which items can be found in the Yearbook Mystery Box.  So here’s the complete rundown of the Gold Box…

Black Friday 2019 Mystery Box Round-Up (Creatures to Men)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As promised in the rundown post, here’s the list of what’s inside each Mystery Box.  Also noted are if the items are in the Yearbook Box or if they’re duplicated in another box for a lower cost.

There’s A LOT of details in the post, so I’m just going to get right to it…

(Also, there was no simple way to do this on my end, so this post took a TON of time to put together.  So, please don’t expect/demand I write a post like this for every single mystery box that hits the game in the future.)

Yearbook Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Wowsers the latest mini-event to hit Springfield brought us the ultimate Mystery Box!  With over 700 items (737 at my count), the Yearbook Mystery Box is the largest single Mystery Box to ever hit our pocket-sized towns.

This isn’t your ordinary Mystery Box.  No, this is a premium box full of almost every limited-time (and not so limited-time) premium item and prize to ever hit Springfield.  It’s pretty insane.

Because this box is different than a standard Mystery Box I’m going to treat this post different than the standard Mystery Box post.  For starters, this is going up shortly after the event hit our games because I know this is the info you’re all really wanted to know.  And I’m going to breakdown what’s inside, as well as give you some tips to get what you really want in Springfield.  So let’s take a look…
