The event is now over! You can see how you placed here.


Welcome to MAL's Annual Halloween Haunt!




Story


You're wandering through the MyAnimeList forest one evening, as twilight descends and the mist begins to roll in. Flipping through new anime entries in your MALidex as you walk, and internally monologuing in some mix of English sprinkled with Japanese, you hear—SNAP!
The sound, caught somewhere between a twig breaking and lightning striking, startles you into looking up.

And there you see it.

A majestic mansion.
Whispering your name as if it were your favourite seiyuu calling.
You approach with little hesitation, as if caught in a spell.

しかし。。。

Little do you know that this mansion is known for trapping unsuspecting MAL users within its depths.
And it has quite an eclectic set of residents.

☩ Enter ☩
...if you dare.



How to Play

1. Enter the Mansion
You must first join the MALoween Mansion club (linked above) to play.


2. Solve/Complete Resident (Main) Rooms
The 2017 Mansion has 14 residents, each with their own main room (aka club thread) and own unique challenge. If you do their bidding satisfactorily, you will receive one piece of their favourite candy. 🍭

However, rooms will appear and disappear from the club without warning. All resident rooms will be open for a minimum of 48 hours, so be sure to take a look around the mansion at least once a day.


3. Collect Bonus Candy (Main & Secret Rooms)
For our challenge-seeking daredevils, it doesn't end there. Some resident rooms will contain bonus candy. Secret rooms will also appear throughout the mansion, giving users a chance to compete for bonus candy to add to their stash. These bonus candy pieces cannot be used as main candy.

Beware: secret rooms are open for very short times and some only give out a single piece of candy to the first correct winner. We suggest you relax in one of our discussion rooms and check the club forum regularly if you'd like more candy.


Escape Mission (Easy Mode)
You must collect at least 6 resident candy pieces (not bonus candy) to safely escape the mansion with your candy stash.

Candy Hoarder (Hard Mode)
Compete with your fellow Mansion dwellers to collect the most candy. Main room candy will have more weight than bonus candy.


At the end of the event, we'll list everyone who escaped the Mansion—and those still trapped inside!


Mansion Closes in...

On Nov 1st, at the stroke of midnight (PST), the Mansion will return to its hiding place for another year...

You have this long to escape!

Even if you can't play regularly and finish, you can at least try a couple rooms! Unlike Easter Hunt, each room is different, so you don't have to follow a lead from start to finish, so it'd take less time (for some rooms at least) :3 There is gonna be other fun stuff too :D

I've been here for a couple years, but only really used the forums this year. I didn't know MAL had cool events like this. I'm excited to escape the mansion with all the candy!

Happy MALoween!

I've been waiting for MALoween for the entire year and it's finally here! I had so much fun last year and I'm sure I'll enjoy myself this year as well. I somehow managed to escape the last time but I'm a bit short on time this year... Oh well, even if I don't escape this time I'll still have fun!

I have been enjoying my year of doing my noisy things, trapped in the MALoween Mansion...

We'll see if i'll end up staying for another year or if the echo and resonance of my noisy terror has been too much for the other residents and i get kicked out instead once the mansion opens... X)

Sorry if my musical experimentations were too much for the other trapped souls(hopefully at least somebody enjoyed/appreciated my company and sounds during the year lol)... ;P
I should probably make a forum signature someday...

I suppose that we could team up if you need/want help.
If that is allowed, that is.

I remember doing this in 2014 right before I went on a super long hiatus... I can't believe this has become a yearly tradition now. Dunno if I have time to do it again, but good luck to everyone
