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…

Itchy and Scratchy Land Act 1 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Itchy and Scratchy Land Event…Ends TOMORROW June 13th at 10am ET (1400 GMT)

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Knife Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning Knives if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act.

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 1 check out our rundown post here.

And don’t forget about our Tips for Starting Act 2 right here.

Be ready for the Act 2 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) tomorrow morning  (June 13th)….
