Speculated to be a new award for completing the Darkmoon game daily quests. A possible item found in this container could be
Hmm, well its one way to get people to start playing those games daily again, after they no longer want any tickets or have anything to spend them on.
EDIT: Since it's becoming the new reward for the daily quests (replacing the tickets) the Darkmoon Prize Tickets will be contained in this bag (possibly with random amounts) with a small chance at other prizes.
These prizes could include the new hats added, the purchasable pets, and who knows what else we will see. Maybe some

This is the new reward for Darmoon faire dailies!

It can also contain several stationary carousel/sandbox rides,
darkmoon faire pets and the darkmoon items/toys,
and ofcourse it also contains

Can't wait to see what else it can contain
Darkmoon dailies are what really got my chronic hand pain started, but seemed like a great way to get several sets of heirlooms over two to three months when I didn't have anyone at max level and was short on playtime and motivation.
Haven't gone back much since except for the monthly trade skill bump, so this might be fun to check out. I also thought the replica armor was bind on pick-up, so wasted a potential cash opportunity.
This will be the new source of

out of 5 prizes.
Can contain a Darkmoon Sandbox Tiger in addition to a ticket (both at once in the same prize box).
Edited for clarity:
I do the Faire on 8 toons every month (I'm working towards all the Heirlooms on a fresh account), so over the course of a week thats 280 dailies.
I can confirm (thus far) that it is possible to receive up to 3 items in the prize, that pets, toys, the Cloak and the Top Hat are among the items rewarded and that each and every prize awards a minimum of one ticket. Turning off Auto-Loot has no effect and will not let you 'look' at the contents of the prize without taking them.
I will update the contents as the week progresses.
It appears that the chances of receiving a prize containing only one ticket are around 75% (you get one everytime you open a prize, but here I mean you have a 75% chance of receiving nothing else in your prize), and the chances of receiving another item in your prize is around 25%.
I think it's fair to say that any item sold by
may appear in the prize although there is no reported sighting of the mounts yet.
My net results:
Single Ticket Only: 117/160 = 73.13%
Carousel or Sandbox ride: 28/160 = 17.5%
Top Hat: 11/160 = 6.9%
Cloak: 1/160 = .6%
Pet: 2/160 = 1.3%
Toy: 2/160 = 1.3%
Item is not soulbound. You can trade, sell, and mail.
I got the top hat on the 4th box.
Is it common or am i lucky?

the new reward for Darkmoon Faire daily quests. The contents of a
Darkmoon Game Prize
can contain multiple various prizes, such as:
Darkmoon Top Hat
, which will increase experience and reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour, when used
... along with the previously awarded
Darkmoon Prize Ticket
The most important change is that these are mailable, so all your toons can mail thier prize boxes to one toon to open. That way instead of each toon earning 5 tickets a day the one toon can earn 55 tickets aday (11 toons per realm).
I wish the "Contains (20)" tab for this item would have SOME way of indicating that it also contains a Darkmoon Prize Ticket. There needs to be some way for Wowhead to display data on currency in a container.
Since no one else has mentioned this yet and wowhead doesn't list it, you can also find a
inside. Quite a nice surprise!
This can also contain the Brawler's Guild quest item
. Drop % still unknown.
Just got this from the darkmoon prize on live EU realms, got it from the first prize so either it is very common or I got very lucky.
As of patch 5.3, has the potential to drop

Opened my 5 today and totally forgot to check for the blindfolds (cause I did the dailies on my monk, and the shaman is my brawler.) I got just a ticket on the first three I opened then got a blindfold on the fourth (*le sigh*) and a cloak on the fifth. Not a terrible haul, but make sure you don't auto loot your boxes like I did. Because thats probably that last blindfold I'm ever going to see :P
These never seem to expire/disappear, and they can contain
, so it seems possible to have a 10% exp DMF buff anytime you want, provided you do your dailes and get lucky and don't loot the hat from these boxes until you're ready to use them. These boxes are even tradeable/mailable, too!
If you have an empty character slot you can farm as many tickets as you need without waiting for a new day. Just make a new tauren or human character (monk recommended for 10% speed boost), get on your main and send 5 silver to that new character and go do the 5 dailies. Flying from Bloodhoof to Thunderbluff speeds up the tauren trek. Hearth back to the starting area and mail the game prizes to the character you want and delete the level 1 character. Repeat as many times as you want.
Yesterday I got the Darkmoon Tonk and Hatchling pets in two boxes in the one set of dailies.
Given their below 1% drop chance it's gotta be one of the rarest moments I've had in wow.
Now I just need the same luck for the Drake of the South Wind, Mimiron's head, Onyxian Drake, Invincible and about 5 other rare as balls mounts.
The ability to use the Darkmoon Top Hat outside of the Darkmoon Faire by keeping them inside the Game Prizes was just hotfixed a day before WOD launch. Confirmed.
EDIT: The prize boxes can no longer be traded.
A story with a little bit of warning:
I received a
inside it – and as I've already learned this toy I decided to loot the ticket only
and give the whistle (inside the box, of course) to someone else.
I traded it to him, but then he told me that he got a text
"You don't have permission to loot from that corpse".
Considering the fact that I looted the currency I do understand why da loot window is tagged.
But I have yet to check if only opening is enough to make this happen.
Being nice is so difficult these days…
After that all, he traded me the prize back. I couldn't loot it too. Who can so? Only the Light knows :)
I've received some of the prize vendor Lhara's pets (which currently aren't even mentioned in the WoWhead's drop table) and I suspect it has a very low chance to drop every one of the prize pets.
However I'm not sure about the mounts.
Nevertheless, since the pets are basically free and nowadays very easy to acquire, it's easier to just buy them than wait for an eternity for the RNG's blessing.
Not saying the game prize boxes are useless, just wanted to share my thoughts regarding the method of acquiring the pets.
Also drops pets, got myself a
this morning from the box
I can confirm that i got a Darkmoon Ballon pet (90) token one out of the box
I can farm 6 of these per 7-8 minutes, but before I make a youtube video of it, I want to see if anybody can farm them faster.
The day after the Faire ended, I checked my mailbox to find all the prizes I mailed to my alt are now
. If this is an intended change, I'm afraid our ticket-pooling days are over. A moment of silence for those yet to begin grinding for the
This past week, I opened mail on my bank toon. I had sent some prizes to it to put in the guild bank I have. All the ones from this past faire are soulbound. I have almost 30 from previous faires in the guild bank but none of the ones from the last faire in November are able to go in. Is there some limitation on time after the faire and then they become soulbound?
As of Nov 10th 2017, these are 'bind on pickup'
As of now, they are soulbound. No more sending to alts for extra tickets. Boo!
Thank you Blizzard! As if we don't have ENOUGH things to time sink you have to mess with DMF...AGAIN! Leave it off now and do something constructive like fixing WoD lol
OK, now what's up? Why were the Darkmoon Game Prize changed to soulbound?
On account of people trying to get the Zeppelin mount faster?
Please don't tell me that this is another bloody time sink scam.
can come from the Darkmoon Game Prize.
Why the hell are they bind on pickup now? I thought the whole point in not awarding the tickets, but a box with a ticket inside, was to give people the possibility of sending those to alts?
Glad I have Dirigible already. Just wanted to speed up some inscription recipes. Not gonna happen I guess.
Just got Darkmoon Hatchling and Darkmoon Turtle from these prizes.
which were obtained in prior Darkmoon Faire's will no longer provide
in later Darkmoon Faire events
as the Developers do not wish for players to store these up for use outside of the Darkmoon Faire in which they were earned,
even if opening the boxes during a later Darkmoon Faire
. This is apparently an intended change.
Initial GM response about the issue:
I actually hopped on your character myself and took a look at your Darkmoon Game Prize boxes that you had stored up. I noticed that the creation date for every single one of these boxes, they all were from past Darkmoon Faire events. You have one from 5/10, 6/7, and two from 7/3. I went ahead and tried to open one myself and sure enough I too received the black box. I am not too sure what was in any of these boxes but when a box is opened and there is no more loot, the box itself should vanish. I know you stated that you had Darkmoon Top Hats in them and were saving them to level alts with as they grant bonus XP. I am not too sure if this was an intended change for the hats to be removed from the boxes after the event is over or if this is a bug but I went ahead and sent up your case to our development team to take a look. As of now though we don't have a way to restore the items that were in the boxes.
Follow up GM response:
I found out that the empty boxes you have are in fact intended to be like that as there was a change to the way that Darkmoon Top Hats work. The devs didn't want players stocking up on these past the Darkmoon Event so they had it to where the Top Hats would actually vanish from boxes if they were being stored. The empty boxes are useless now and I was informed you can just delete them as they should've deleted on their own with the change providing that all you had in there were Top Hats. The Top Hats are only intended to be used during that Darkmoon Faire event in which they are earned in.
You can also get the Darkmoon Zeppelin from it. I just did. i bet it's a low chance like the cloak and whistle
Looks like there was a change at some point, as you can also loot Darkmoon pets from it.
