4th of July Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time to celebrate America’s Birthday in Springfield!  Nothing says America quite like throwing a big party to celebrate yourself!  😉  Of course it wouldn’t be a party without a Mystery Box, now would it?  Of course EA’s go a box for this occasion!  They have a box for everything! This time around it’s full of items from 4th of July Events (and some not) of the past…

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those 4th of July/American inspired premium character/building/decorations.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside…

Special Pride Event – WDTCF – J. Edgar Hoover

Yes. It’s another “Pride Event” in our Springfields.  I want to remind everyone that this isn’t the place (and is never going to be) to air your opinions about gay marriage, Leviticus, the LGBQT community, or anything else that is a political hot potato.  The fact is, EA/Gracie seem to choose to deal with every major holiday (as well as most of the minor ones), with tongues planted firmly in cheek, reminding us that there are far bigger things to worry about in this world than the pettiness that comes from such political/religious debates.

That said…there is no doubt at all, that the “Gill Deal” for Pride Week may ruffle a few (boa) feathers. J. Edgar Hoover is one of the most controversial figures of the 20th century.  I will dive into some of that history in a minute. But, the primary cautionary tale about his story (and the less than subtle way EA/Gracie are dealing with it) has more to do with the need to be proud of who you are…no matter who you are. Hence his slightly ambiguous introduction into “Pride Week.”

It is a fascinating story, whether you deem J. Edgar as worthy of his 199 donut price or not.

Pride Week Content Now Live in Stores

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just letting you know that the Pride week content has now hit our stores.  The Gil Deal will be available until June 26th  and the Mystery Box will be around until the event ends on July 11th.  

I’ll break down the full details of everything (likely tomorrow) with SIB posts, but this post is just meant to let you know the content is there and what the basics are..

Also, this post is meant to serve as yet another reminder…we go through this every year…this is not a site to post your personal views pro or con over Pride Week.  I don’t care if you’re for it or against it, but don’t talk about it here.  You want to talk about the content that hit the games?  Great!  You want to put your own personal spin on it..not great.  Any comments, pro or con for Pride week, in general, will be deleted.  This is not the place.  Trust me…don’t mess with the pregnant lady on this one. Everyone got it?  Good. Great. Grand. Let’s move on…
