This page summarises actions that grant Opening a Bundle of Oddities and the corresponding rewards that can be obtained from What's in the bundle?

The "Expected Value" column indicates the expected value for that row's reward; the "Cumulative Expected Value" column indicates the expected value for an action whose maximum Opening a bundle of oddities value is the maximum value for that row. For example, the cumulative expected sell value of the items given by a bundle of oddities generated by Speak for a little while and ask them to disperse, which gives a maximum Opening a Bundle of Oddities value of 200, is 1.51.
