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…

Black Friday 2018 Should I Buy Round-Up Part 2: Women to Gold

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So typically when it comes to a Mystery Box I lay out all of the details for each box in a separate post, however, Black Friday brought us SIXTEEN total boxes and a whole lotta stuff inside of each one! So to do an individual post on each box seems a little crazy, at least to me.  (especially since it’s nearly Thanksgiving and I’ve got a ton of stuff to prepare)

So rather than do my typical Mystery Box post, for each box, I’ve decided to do two big posts.  Each post will cover 8 boxes, their contents will be linked to a previous post and next to each item I’ll include the original donut cost (if applicable).  This will help you get a sense of what’s inside and what the value of each item is.

Since you can’t pick and choose what to buy from each box, you’ll have to make your own decisions based on what you like/want and what you can afford to spend.  Hopefully, the linked posts (and original costs) will help you make that decision.

So here we go with the second (and final) round of boxes, everything from women to gold!

Black Friday 2018 Preview ***Spoilers***

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re nearing most Tappers favorite day, Black Friday!  Yes a day when all those premium items you’ve been eyeing go on deep discount.  Of course, this is TSTO and everything has a twist.  This year’s twist, just like last year’s, is that you can’t just outright buy something.  Everything comes in  Mystery Box!  So if you’ve been eyeing that one particular character you may have to clean out a box to do so!

So, as we’ve done in the past, let’s give you guys a preview of what’s in store starting TOMORROW…November 20th.  Yes, that’s right.  Black Friday gets earlier and earlier each year.  Apparently EA couldn’t wait until Friday, instead, they have the items hitting Tuesday.

Note: Once they’re live I’ll start posting typical Mystery Box posts with links to Should I Buys for each box. 

WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD
