You Thought Points (or YTPs) is a point system in Baldi's Basics Plus.


The Player earns YTPs depending on how well they perform certain tasks. Some ways to earn YTPs are such as completing field trips, dealing with some characters, and using structures in some places. In a later update, they will be able to spent on items and special favors (such as desiring to expel a character from the Super Schoolhouse) in a shop the Player will stop at between floors within the Super Schoolhouse.

  • You Thought Points are first revealed in the Kickstarter campaign blog post since July 31, 2018.[1]
  • The acronym "YTPs" might be a reference to YouTube Poop, the infamous video mashups in the YouTube web containing editing pre-existing media sources for humorous, obscene, annoying, confusing, shocking, détournement, 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.
  • You Thought Points values appear on the screen after the Player completes each level in the Kickstarter exclusive demo. Before V1.2 update, these values used to be only for placeholders as they always had the same amount of YTPs, because the methods were not implemented. As of the V1.2 update, they have added a working counter and the Player can earn YTPs in multiple places.


  1. "First off, the You Can Think Pads will get a new feature, the ability to award You Thought Points (YTPs)! Depending on how quickly you solve the problems they present, you'll earn more YTPs. ... There will be other ways to earn YTPs as well, such as in field trips, or even through some characters!" - Kickstarter Update #3 - One week in! More new features and creating characters!
