When I was a newer player I really enjoyed these type of boxes because you really need to try a ton of discs to know what you like.

Now I target few molds and try new releases but they are still fun.

I will say that the major reason I consider buying the boxes is the new molds that are released in them. I know when I purchase that I will likely sell about half of the box but last time the half of the box I sold paid for the rest of the box and I basically got a new mold and 2 other discs for free.

At this point I don't need to buy any mystery boxes. I can just have a few drinks, and then dig through my massive stash of random frolf stuff.

Grab a few discs, some stickers, maybe a towel. Put them in a box. Tape it up, toss it on the front stoop.

The next morning: Hey, a Mystery Box!
**eagerly open the box**
Ugh, who would want this Salient Antidote? Better cover it up with stickers! At least I'll use the towel.

With my crappy memory that might actually work! Genius!

No, I wanted to see what actually arrived at a regular persons house in a Mystery Box.

Looking at both of the boxes they got they are exactly what will be arriving at peoples doors. That is the average mystery box. Variety of molds and plastics with gems spread out across the boxes. I honestly miss the crazy x outs that we got in the first 2 runs of boxes.

Second run artist edition boxes are live on the site. The first run of boxes sold out pretty fast and I am sure the second run will follow that pattern.

Totally reasonable. My favorite thing about this time of year is the people letting go of their mystery box stuff at actual reasonable prices and the x outs that are available.
