4th of July Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’ve been traveling back in time, but now it’s time to put on our American History hats (cue the groans from those outside the US) as we gear up for Independence Day here in America!  And nothing says Happy Birthday America quite like a dip in the old Mystery Box…

This is a premium box full of your change to get those limited-time premium character/building/decorations with an American flair to them.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside.. Continue reading

TTT Pirate Era Excavation Site Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Raise the Jolly Roger as the Time Travel Toaster has flashed us into the Pirate  Era!  We’ve got roaming Rats (ugh..), Animatronic Pirates, Ghostly Ships and lots of Booty (apparently TSTO is trying to keep up with the Kardashians)!

You can tell EA is trying to do a few things different with this event…for starters the overall event is a week shorter and there are more prize elements, but it’s really the Excavation Site that people are digging…see what I did there? 

The Excavation Game has Tappers everywhere talking…about the best strategy, how many moves they can find the Gem in and apparently it’s become almost as addicting as this site !;)

So let’s breakdown the details of the Excavation Site changes that rolled in with the Pirate Era….

TTT 101: Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the long awaited, Crafting post….where I give you the how tos and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Now I know some of you still have questions so, let’s take a look…

To Hold Shovels Or Not…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Real quick, I’m getting this question asked A LOT in the comments…once you unlock Baby T-Rex should you hold shovels for the next Era or Keep using them?

Honestly, there’s no right or wrong answer to this.  If you unlocked Baby T-Rex this easily you likely won’t have an issue with the next Era (which is also 48 Gems) so it’s kind of a moot point for you.  But you’re also going to need shovels to earn more Fossils, Specimens and Tachyons…you know to finish the Prehistoric Prize Track.

So if you’re really paranoid and worried about saving shovels then do a mix of saving shovels and using them until you’ve unlocked the final prize in the Prehistoric Era.  If you’re not worried (and honestly, if you’ve unlocked Baby T-Rex at this point you shouldn’t be worried), keep using them.  Earn all those Fossils and get as many bonuts as you can!

If you do decide to save, I’d do a mix of saving and using.  Or even wait until the day before the Prehistoric Era ends to start saving…this way you’ll continue to earn Specimens (for Crafting) and Tachyons (for the Panini Press).

Everyone got it?  Good.
