Webkinz World Trick or Treat Event Starts Friday *UPDATE*
Originally Submitted by FIA on Thu, 10/21/2010 - 11:27pm, Eastern Time.
Webkinz World's 2010 Trick or Treat event is just around the corner, and Webkinz players everywhere are preparing to hunt for "Spooky" the Mazin' Hamster in the Clubhouse.
Just like last year's event, the objective is to collect twelve pieces of candy. Once a player completes the candy collection, he/she will receive a pumpkin that can be "carved" with a customized face. Unlike last year's event, the candy will be passed out by Spooky instead of a Ghost. It is worth noting that, unlike other Hamsters in Webkinz World, this special Spooky will be carrying a small jack o' lantern. Also, Spooky will make a "Boooo!" sound when he appears.
Spooky will be running around in the Clubhouse starting on Friday, October 22, and ending on Sunday, October 31. To get help finding Spooky, or to help other players find him, please visit Webkinz Insider's Officially Spooky Tracking Thread. Last year Webkinz Insider players were able to figure out the pattern of the Ghost, and we hope to do that again this year.
UPDATE (12:01am ET, October 22): Spooky is now making the rounds in the Clubhouse. He makes the exact same sounds as the 2009 Trick or Treat Ghost, and he has the same "sayings".
Everyone should now have a spider basket showing on the bottom-right corner of their screens when they are in the Clubhouse. Clicking on this basket will display that account's current candy collection. If you see other pets in the Clubhouse with jack o' lanterns hovering over their heads, this simply means that they are checking their collections.
Once a pet has received a piece of candy from Spooky, the words "TRICK OR TREAT" will appear above the pet's head. At the moment, each account can only collect candy from Spooky once every three hours. For last year's event, the time limit was also three hours at the start, but it became shorter as the event went on. UPDATE (Oct 25): The time has been shortened to two hours.
