So the event has a cupcake theme which is neat I so far have seen about 4 of them (Yes I haven't completed the event I blame Pokemania) but there isn't a whole lot to the event. In terms of game-play it plays similarly to the previous events storm troopers and the event before that's Easter eggs. BUT you only have a possibility of seeing one at a time which significantly prolongs the event. Now you do get some nice rewards for completing the cupcakes like premium tickets and skill tickets but you can also get Marie according to the info I got so there's that. There really isn't a whole lot to say about the event other than if you managed to finish the previous event and got a fully skilled out Leia she will make tons of money and get you those rewards so I recommend her....now if you didn't finish the Star Wars event or just started characters like Goofy or Tigger from the happiness box are good options but its somewhat dependent on luck. Pretty much most of the premium box tsum should do the trick minus transformation, and time-stop tsums with a few exceptions like B-day Anna and Maleficent.
Capsules or Time Capsules are special premium boxes essentially that show you what you can get and once you get one of the tsums from the capsule it will go away giving you a better chance at getting the other tsums in the capsules. These usually come around once a month (So far they've been pretty consistent) but the big part of these capsules is that they can have limited tsums that aren't available anymore (Bumblebee Pooh) or aren't available at all normally (Arlo) so if you gotta collect them all and started half-way through or missed some removed tsums that supposedly will come back later in these (Jack, Zero, and Perry) THESE ARE VERY IMPORTANT.... so anyway every one of them so far have had about 15 tsums in them and since they cost the same price as a normal premium box it will cost around 450,000 coins to get every, single, one and once you do you also get a sweet skill ticket to top it off. But if you have maxed out one of the tsums skill level entirely and you get a reroll, worry not as according to my info you will be compensated with a premium box ticket take that info with a grain of salt as I haven't done that myself haha. Now since they come once a month and you have all the tsums you want from the premium box saving up money for the capsules is a pretty good way to guarantee getting limited time tsums which is great so get grinding for coins.
So while I understand that having regional differences is pretty much guaranteed, it would be nice to have some of the things that the Japanese have that we kinda missed unfortunately now I won't go crazy on the details but we pretty much missed most of the big event tsums (Lilo, Abu) and don't even have access to quite a few tsums that weren't even part of events (Sally, Genie, the Romance Ariel set) now I also understand that we will forever be behind the Japanese servers that's not what I'm talking about I'm talking about the specific tsums and the musical tsums we've missed so far (Jasmine, Luke, Vader, Belle). But since we got Bride Rapunzel I have some hope that they will reintroduce or upgrade the ones we missed into musical tsums that would be nice. Not to mention that for a while we had some exclusives (Zootopia) and then the moment the Japanese servers launched them BAMM! Judy becomes a musical...... I know I'm just moaning and groaning and that tsum tsums originally came from Japan but come on....
SO sorry about the rant at the end next time I post it will be about magical bubbles specifically and how you can manipulate them into what you want.

SO as you may or may not know the Star Wars event has ended and with it the characters exclusive to that but not even a week later we got a new event to mess around with and its the mickey challenge. Long story short its a competition for the high score using only Mickey. Over the course of the event which only lasts til' the 26th, people will be trying for high scores and as people score higher and higher the brackets will move around with them. So good news literally everyone actually has a fair shot at the higher level pins because everyone has Mickey and leveling Mickey actually doesn't really change a whole lot with his score but it could help (refer to my Mickey and Minnie post) though people who have skilled up Mickey will obviously have a slight advantage in the end it'll come down to some luck, the power cards you decide to use, and some skill.... Well that's all good but what do we get for being on top well we get pins ladies and gentlemen.... kinda disappointing would be nice to get a skill ticket or even a premium box ticket but oh well.... There really isn't a whole lot to say about this event so I'll move onto something I promised a couple weeks ago and that's.
So you need money for that capsule or lucky time but you average around 300 coins a game with would take 100 games to finally get that premium box and you draw...... the same tsum you already have well that sucks.... but I'll give you some tips that could help in your money building starting with basic gameplay.
So to start don't use any power tickets as they are only useful for high scores like for instance the new Mickey event unless you are willing to use freebies you may have gotten from events. You aren't going for high scores so prolong the game as much as possible use skills to get back into fever once it ends to get that extra sweet 5 seconds to the timer and prioritize longer chains if possible as you get only get coins with chains longer then 3 and it multiplies as the chain gets longer. With that out of they way I will give some example of both happiness box and premium boxes you should be using to farm money with.

So to start if you managed to get your hands on a Star Wars tsum you are in luck they generally make the missions easier to complete but sometimes they won't be enough and you might be forced to reset so here are some good tips for some of the mission types. Oh and once you get C-3P0 or Leia they don't count for the character bonus so there's that.
Big tsum: This may be the most annoying mission type at least for me. tsums that are dedicated to creating big tsums are extremely recommended and none of the Star Wars tsums have that ability regardless if you happen to have Sully, Alice, or Baymax you won't have much trouble with these missions but if you don't, anything past clearing 3 or 4 big tsums is not likely.
Magical Bubbles: These missions aren't too bad as most tsums should give you at least one bubble to pop per special but there are tsums that can help such as Marie or Miss Bunny. But if you don't have them using specials that clear more than 7 tsums will give you a bubble with few exceptions (Vader). Now if you need specific bubble types like time, Exp, coin, or score bubbles it gets a bit more complicated. If you make a strict 7 chain you will ONLY make normal bubbles but go past that and you have a chance at making a time bubble the exact numbers for the special types are: normal 7-13, Time 9-16, Exp 11-18, coin 13-20, and score 15-21+. So with that said if you use tsums that clear numbers between what I stated you have a chance at getting that bubble the only guaranteed special bubble is a score bubble so long as you make a chain of 21 or higher.
Skills: Using skills x amount of times can be frustrating but did you notice that every tsum charges at different rates? YES, yes they do, its a balancing mechanic that can make or break a tsum. So for example Mickey takes 14 Mickey tsums to charge whereas Donald takes 12. There are also specials that once leveled up take less to charge such as Yoda, Vader, Pete, Pinocchio, and Sven although they may not see any other kind of bonus such as an increase in how many tsum they clear. But if you are having a difficult time with these missions Thumper is the best tsum for this his special charges after you clear 6 Thumpers.
Fever: Entering fever can be a problem especially when you need to do it 8 to 9 times this can be alleviated if you have a Star Wars tsum somewhat but not everyone has them so here's a tip if you use your special during fever you won't build the next one so if your goal is to enter fever as many times as possible save the special until you leave fever and then use it and immediately reenter fever.
And last but not least the storm troopers they are odd they only occur randomly so not everyone will encounter them often but they really don't do anything aside from give you money based on how many you cleared, the amount can range from 100 to 3000 should you clear them all which is surprisingly hard and can be risky should you use power-ups ESPECIALLY once the discount goes away. So don't spend more to 1500 as its not really worth it. The best tsums to use are tsums that clear x amount of tsums randomly rather than clearing the center or on a line as it gets really hard to clear them should they reach the bottom of the screen so tsums like Mater and Nick are very useful for the storm troopers.
I hoped some of this information helped I'll be posting about various random tsums going over what they could be used for and how they compare to each other. See you next time.
