Jack's Fortune, Going, Going, Gone...

Well, that didn't take long!

Jack has already managed to blow his way through his new found oil fortune (check his homestead for proof!) and finds himself with a lot of things he doesn't need! We all know what it's like when we've got a bit of disposable income in our pockets...

So now, we're going to help him and Hank build a little auction block to get rid of his items, and then we can maybe borrow it afterwards to clear out a few things from our own overstocked inventories!

Guess what, it's a popup!

This will kick off a five mission thread (all details HERE) and a four step build for the Auction Block (all details HERE).

Through the missions we'll clear out Jack's junk cupboard, but once they're finished, it's our turn! Yep, we're going to get to clear some mess from our own! 

Yes folks, it's not just Jack who gets to auction stuff! The completed auction block can be used 5 times a day, auctioning off our old stuff in return for one of four special Mystery Crates.

Once we place the item we want rid of in the Auction Block the game checks how much it's worth and transforms it into a Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Mystery crates.

Those crates can contain any mix of special items, boosts and other goodies that are more help than the original junk!

To give you some ideas of what you can get, Bronze could be Sheep Shampoo, meals or a boost. Silver's top items include Tough Hands Tonic and Squeezing the Stone Boost Books, Gold's lucky openers could find Lumber Tree serum or some of the best boosts in the game, including the Raging Buffalo and top tier Leather boosts and the extra special Platinum Crate can pop out a Frontier Fritter, an Aged Salmon, Beef Jerky or even a Crazier Cake!

We'll also see a few new items in the market, although they're also items from Mission rewards or the crates.

So lets get rid of all Jack's tat, and then we can dump some of our own!
