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

Welcome to MAL's Annual Halloween Haunt!

characters belong to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou  



Story

You wipe the sweat from your brow as your feet sink into the boggy marsh beneath you.
Each step is harder than the last, your boots seeming to cling to the mud,
but even though the trek through the forest has been long, you push on.

Unfortunate circumstances and an unlucky hand in life have led you to this place—MALoween Mansion.
No one has ever survived the night here, let alone a week, and yet that is the very task you have set out to do.

There it is, looming over the horizon. Pitch-black spires stand in dark contrast to the moonlit night sky.
And then... A crash of THUNDER. The silhouette of the mansion is covered in a blinding light.
In that momentary flash, you see a figure in the window of the supposedly empty mansion...

It must be your imagination, you think as you continue on.
Then, another crash, and you see it again.

Except every window has its own figure, waiting...
But for who?

🗲 🗲 🗲

Will you risk it all for fame and candy?


☩ Enter ☩
...if you dare.



How to Play

1. Enter the Mansion
You must first join the MALoween Mansion club to play. Click "Enter" above and then "Join Club" underneath the picture on the right.


2. Solve Puzzles/Complete Missions
Under "Club Discussion", you will see forum threads. Each forum thread represents one "room" of the mansion. Each room will contain some kind of challenge, quest, or riddle. If you successfully do what the room asks, you will be rewarded with candy. Some rooms will be easy, some will be difficult. You are free to choose which to play and which to skip.

Be careful: rooms will appear and close (lock) without warning. All rooms will be open for a minimum of 48 hours, so be sure to take a look at the club discussions at least once a day. Locked rooms are no longer eligible to be played.


3. Collect Candy
The 2020 Mansion has the possibility to collect 18 pieces of unique candy from 17 rooms (one room is a 2-in-1). For our challenge-seekers, it doesn't end there. Some rooms will contain bonus candy, giving users a chance to compete for even more candy to add to their stash.

Escape Mission (Easy Mode)
You must collect at least 9 unique 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!


☩ Check the Clock ☩

I've yet to hear anyone say they didn't enjoy MALoween (or other MAL events). I'm sure many of us will enjoy it and appreciate the effort all of you put into it :)

I love your forum set btw, I especially like how the border doesn't go over the raven's tail in the sig.

I guess it's because it's my first time hosting a room, haha.

Aww, thank you!

I think most people know how it works and new people just head directly to the club and read the room descriptions to understand how they work. :)
But there might be some lost sold too...

Just when is MAL going to release a dark theme?
This Halloween dark nav-bar theme has left me wanting more darkness, pretty sure I'm not the one.

If you need some advice, just ask. First thing you have to do is to click on ENTER and join the Halloween club.
