The total amount of You Thought Points from the results screen.

You Thought Points (or YTPs) is a point system in Baldi's Basics Plus that is used in Johnny's Store as a currency.


The YTP counter showing up on the screen.

The player earns YTPs depending on how well they perform certain tasks. Some ways to earn YTPs are: collecting notebooks, completing field trips, dealing with some characters, and using structures in some places. As of V0.2, they can be spent on items and a special favor such as a filled-out map in Johnny's Store, where the player stops at between floors of the Super Schoolhouse. Once the player earns YTPs, the current amount of YTPs will appear on the screen, showing that the player has earned them.

  • The concept of You Thought Points is first revealed in the Kickstarter campaign blog post since July 31, 2018,[1] and first available in Baldi's Basics Kickstarter Exclusive Demo V1.2, though there was no place to use these points at that time.
    • Even though You Thought Points originated from the You Can Think Pad, the player cannot earn points in this device as its purpose was changed when this system was first implemented.
  • The acronym "YTPs" might be a reference to YouTube Poop, the infamous video mashups on the YouTube website containing edited pre-existing media sources for humorous, obscene, annoying, confusing, shocking, or dramatic purposes.
    • Furthermore, many people thought the name "YTPs" actually stood for YouTube Poops, and so the actual name may be a jab at that.

  • Prior to V0.2, there were two ways to lose You Thought Points: Baldi catching the player without An Apple for Baldi and the player bringing the wrong number balloon into the Math Machine.

  • The intermission screen showing placeholder values.

    Before the V1.2 update, these values used to be only for placeholders because the methods were not implemented, so they always show the same values. As of V1.2, they have added a working counter and the player can earn YTPs in multiple places.
