A little downtime wouldn't hurt. It happend before so it would be nice to happen again. Am not alone in thinking this. I just think it's ridiculous having all these events come thick and fast.

    Trust me, others get bored with the down time, too. Half of my neighbors in Tapped Out don't play the game anymore, sadly. They're probably playing Pokemon Go instead. :wink:

    The mystery box contains the tap ball costumes. If you have them already it should not be available for you. Matador Grampa, Jockey Bart (With Furious D-best prize imo), Tennis Marge. I'm guessing another one too. Can't recall.

    Edit Ballet Ralph or Kung **** Comic Book Guy. Ralph is great.

    Really that's poop. I've got them. I thought it was offering somethings different. Ah well never mind hey.

    So which are premium payout skins now? Have they all been converted? I seem to recall Ralph, CBG and Marge were free, Bart and Grandpa were premium.

    Can anyone confirm payouts with these skins?

    I went to a park for a picnic over the weekend and almost everyone there was playing the game-- walking around while looking at their cell. It was hilarious! Never seen anything quite like that before. :lol:

    I've heard loads of stories of things happen to people playing this game from people not paying attention to what's going on around them to getting robbed of their phones. This is one game I have no desire to play.

    I hear ya. I don't want to download the game or I might get tempted. Others have said it made them go out for walks more-- just have to do it in a safe place like parks instead of running into traffic in busy streets. :lol:

    Can anyone tell me if any of the prizes have multipliers? Because if not, I may just buy a flag bundle or two and skip this whole event. Boring.

    I got the locker offer, but I already have three of the skins offered (I don't have the premium Grandpa and Jockey Bart with Furious D). I desperately want Furious D though. If I buy it, is there a possibility I'll get a skin I already have? Has anyone bought the locker yet?

    It will only offer what you don't have.

    Thanks! Now the question is whether I should spend 75 donuts on a coin flip between the awesome Jockey Bart with Furious D and the awful Toreador Abe. Decisions...

    I have them from Tap Ball. You are correct, only grandpa and bart's skins payout premium. Furious D is also premium. Rest are freemium payouts.

    ETA: OOPS misread. I don't think the payouts will change. My understanding is that if you already have all the characters you won't get the new mystery box option.

    Toreador Abe was 85 donuts last year and Jockey Bart with Furious D was 100 donuts, so you are getting a discount with either one.

    Yeah, but I'd rather get a character than yet another skin for Abe.

    I wanted Furious D and Bart, so of course I got Grandpa. I was able to buy a second locker and got Bart and D since they were the only ones left I didn't already have.
