Every room has different requirements. You'll need to read the rules to find out.

Okay, for example the room "You Are (Not) Afraid of Blue's Maloween Game".
In category 'The Tsundere' in second question(?) I get a quote. What am I supposed to do with it?

You'll have more luck getting help on Discord and in the club game thread. This is just the announcement :)

According to a reply in another thread, the escaped ones and candy count will be posted in this thread somewhere.
It is very likely that it might still take a few days due to how many users participated.

I think the results are all compiled, just that Kineta is too overworked right now, afaik.

Just be patient!

A BIG THANK YOU to all of our MALoween✟Mansion challengers! If this was your first annual event, we hope you'll take the time to check out some of our others in the upcoming ~6 months.

Please also remember to thank our event staff! Snowical always organizes the entire MALoween event, bringing all the mods who create rooms into some semblance of order. Big thanks to everyone who took the time to create and run their own rooms: Ana, Ardanaz, Congress, Huhmuhnuh, ImperfectBlue, Jicetus, Luna, Naruleach, Sapphire, Shocked, Shymander, Skittles, and Tensho. Without all of their creativity and hard work, this event would not have happened. Please also thank Maffy for her help with the bonus events, and Mishukax for organising the Mafia event.

Candy counts are given as (resident bonus) and a final total.
Remember that resident (main room) candy was worth more than bonus.

This event was really awesome, like every year. There were times I wanted to kill someone (I see you @Shymander), but every time I completed a room it felt really good!
Thank you for making this happen every year!

thank you to all the admins & mods who worked hard to create bizarrely amusing rooms and challenges for us to solve, as well as fellow participants who made the discord chatrooms lively and entertaining as we all burned in flames and suffered together!
getting #9 in my first ever halloween event and discord server experience was a perk too, as well as making new friends through this temporary purgatory~ happy to have escaped the mansion!

Well, it's back to the Clockwork heart for me. It was fun, and I got close, so it's a good consolation to see that among the ones who are trapped, I was 7th (104th total). 350 days left, everybody.

I wanted to try collecting all the candies this year but I ended up being late by a few days and I missed so many entertaining rooms :| so I'll try at that next time~

Wow, I'm one of the first few on the Escapees list. If I had known that 10 main candies was a second goal then I would've tried more to get that 10th candy though. :(

Thank you mods for this fun event!

Oh, wow. I actually made it to #11. I didn't expect that. I wasn't even sure if I would make it in the top 25 :D

I really appreciate all the effort. I can only imagine how difficult it must be so set up such games and be that creative. All in all it seemed like a really nice event, but I thought some input might be appreciated. And if not, then everyone can just skip my wall of text :D I hope it's okay to share some critique/personal opinion about this event :)

- Next time I would prefer it if more mods/people worked on one room.
I totally understand everyone has a private life, school/job, needs sleep etc. But it happened a few times that I sent in a submission in the morning and after 16 hours I still didn't get a reply. Considering that these rooms were open for about 2 - 4 days iirc it's kind of irritating to only get two tries. Sometimes you found people who could help you, but no one was officially allowed to confirm/deny answers, so it was frustrating when you had to pray that your answer was right because you knew there wouldn't be any reply until the room closed.

- Some rooms were really difficult and I'm not sure if they were too difficult tbh.
The first one that comes to mind is the Sawmander Room with the trigonometry stuff. It's been over six years since I finished school, so my memory on that stuff is really rusty, I understand that's just my personal "problem". But from what I've seen around MAL it seems like many people are too young to have ever heard about that stuff in school in the first place. You could look up how to solve Sin, Cos and Tan, but knowing what it is in the first place seems so tricky.

- That's also part of the third "complaint" - It was too difficult/time-consuming for the short amount of time.
It was during a time where people I knew had exams. Even if they didn't then there's still the problem of normal week with school and work. Some of these people I know actually quit the event because it took too much time. Spending two hours a day seems like a fair amount, but I know I spent basically whole days on some rooms. Of course no one's to blame here because it's my own decision, but I'm sure most people spend a lot of time on these rooms. Personally I found it really exhausting at the end.

Thank you so much for this event again! It was a lot harder than the first year! OO: Some rooms I didn't even touch because I was too busy and thought it'd be bad to spend time on them when I had a bunch of assignments/test studying I was supposed to be doing instead.;; I saw an answer that I had a little beef with, but whatever. Not my room, not my rules.

Seriously though, thanks for the event! It made me really anxious, but I'm still really happy I was able to participate and even manage to escape! Thank you mods and fellow participants (who once again encouraged me just by going at it)!

Since I know mods get busy too, maybe it might be helpful to have a few people helping to check answers in the threads though? I wouldn't mind volunteering for something like that. Or if there are other mods free who don't want to host a room but have a little time to check answers, maybe that could help too.

Thank you all again! ;o;

Enjoy your anime!

Holy-- I actually managed to escape?!

Thank you so much for organizing this event! It's my first time and I never really thought I'd enjoy it as much as I did while I was doing it. Definitely going to join the next one. ^^

My 4 days of no proper sleep got paid off. T_T
