Come this way…"
In this year's Halloween Event, your quest giver will be the Ringmaster. He will show you around the attractions and invite you to join him for a tour on his misty Fairground. This Halloween's questline will provide you with 30 rush quests, and then 21 additional quests, with one appearing each day.
You'll receive 30 rush quests, and then 21 quests, with one appearing each day. But quester beware, you're in for a scare!
This year's Halloween season will let you explore a dark and frightening fairground tent. To uncover this tent, you will need to exchange fairground tickets for special tools in order to clear the fog that's hiding your path and some rare treasures.
The Fairground Tent
Upon opening the event window, you will see the misty tent filled with fog and circus travel cases. Make your way through it, cleaning the fog with the tools available: A candle, a flashlight and a lantern.
Use the candle to clear a single fog tile at a time. A flashlight can be used on an empty tile to clear an entire column unless there is a suitcase in the way. A lantern clears all surrounding tiles, but like the flashlight, cannot clear suitcases, so use your tiles wisely!
By completing event quests, you will be rewarded with tickets that you can use to exchange in the event's Tool Shop, in order to get various different tools to help you clear away the fog and find prizes hidden underneath. Use them wisely, as each tool has a specific area of effect that helps you to make your way through the tent, where you'll find hidden Pumpkins that contain rewards of different values (including a chance to win the Daily Special), as well as coveted lightbulbs (collect enough of them to obtain the valuable Grand Prize). Watch out for Circus travel cases in the fog, as they will block your way in tent.
You can also find tickets in regular incidents around or in the outskirts of your city.
Getting more tools
You can find more tools in the tent itself, but there is also a way to exchange your tickets for more tools. Press the -Button to open the Tool Shop. Here, you can either purchase single tools for your tickets or buy bundles that give you a better deal!
With the introduction from last years event, you can once again collect multiple short questlines (creepy fairground toys) as rewards in the tent (there are an addition to the main questline), and at the end of each questline, a special reward should be granted to you. This also means that you'll be able to potentially work on multiple quests simultaneously.
These toys can be found while advancing through the misty tent, and whenever you collect one of them, it will be available to activate in your Toy Collection window, which can be accessed in the main event window. You can activate simultaneously as many questlines you want, as long as they're not the same! When you finish one, a check-mark is shown next to that toy. You can find and collect more than one of each toy, and their chances of appearance may vary depending on their rareness.
Once every toy is found and solved, you can obtain a valuable Collector's Reward by clicking in the collect button on the right side of the reward.
Many different rewards await you on your way through the fairground tent, but they are hidden under the fog. To see them, you will need to clear it away. If they're still covered, you won't be able to see if the fog hides rewards.
As you uncover tiles, you will get the chance to unveil a Pumpkin, more tools (Flashlight, Candle and Lantern) to aid your progress, Avatars, Light bulbs, or Teddy bears. Hover your mouse over Pumpkins to find out what is on offer in each one. Once you've uncovered a reward fully, click on it to claim your prize. Be careful! Make sure you don't advance deeper into the fairground tent without uncovering the rewards you want. Once you go too far, there is no going back, and you'll lose sight of the reward.
|Light bulbs are a special prize to uncover that will bring you closer to the Grand Prize reward. Once you reach 20 Light bulbs, you will receive the Grand Prize which is displayed at the top of the event window.|
|Tools can also be found under the fog. You can find all the tools of the event!|
|Pumpkins come in a variety of different styles. Once uncovered, they will have a random reward for you and provide the chance to win the Daily Special. Tapping the pumpkin or hovering the mouse over it also reveals what it may contain.|
|Avatars are available from previous Halloween Events and can also be uncovered on your journey.|
|Teddy bears can also be revealed and collected, providing you with mini quests to complete. Solve one of every teddy bears questline to receive the collectors Reward.|
Halloween Event Rewards
The House Of Horrors
The Grand prize this year is the House of Horrors, an upgradable 3x4 buildings with 7 levels. These branching upgradable buildings are also adding special new inhabitants for your city, based upon which branch choice you'll make.
Upon reaching the final level, you can choose between those three options above. The House of Horrors will provide Coins and Population as base productions, besides a Defense Boost for your Attacking Army. When motivated, the House of Horrors will also generate Goods of your current age, Supplies and Forge Points (please keep in mind that this building can be plundered, if not motivated). Nevertheless, placing this build in your city will also generate negative happiness.
The building and its upgrade kits can be gained through the event's grand prize and as rewards for milestones in the event quest line. To gain the Grand prize, you will have to collect 20 lightbulbs in the tent. Lightbulbs are a special prize that will bring you closer to the Grand Prize reward. Once you have uncovered 20 lightbulbs, you will receive the Grand Prize which is displayed at the top of the event window.
|To upgrade the House of Horrors, you have to use the House of Horrors Upgrade Kit. These Kits can be obtained in the Halloween quest line and as one of the Grand Prizes on offer.|
