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

Welcome to MAL's Annual Halloween Haunt!

Characters belong to Odd Taxi—watch it!  



Story

The crunch of cold, wet leaves with each footstep.
Your breath, crystalizing in the chilly air that stings your face.

A decrepit mansion stands before you,
framed by the silhouettes of tree branches against the full moon.
MALoween Mansion

You shouldn't have gotten in that taxi.
You're sure you gave the driver the right address—the one to your friends' party
—but this wasn't what you were expecting.

Soon you notice the other guests walking towards the mansion, each dressed as if from some bygone era.
A blonde girl dressed in a polka-dot dress from the 50's.
A couple straight out of a Victorian painting.
A man clutching a wooden musket from the 1700's.
But no matter what era, they all seem... almost see-through, as if they aren't actually here.

Suddenly, you remember the parting words of the taxi driver, spoken in husky laughter.
Omae wa mou, shindeiru

Those people are already dead.
And... what if you are, too?

🗲 🗲 🗲

Will you risk it all for fame and candy?


☩ Click to Enter ☩
...if you dare.



How to Play

1. Enter the Mansion
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.
All mansion rooms contain some kind of quest or riddle. If you successfully do what the room asks, you will be rewarded with candy.

3. Collect Candy
The 2021 Mansion has the possibility to collect 17 pieces of unique main candy.
Some rooms will also contain bonus candy, giving challengers a chance to compete for the biggest stash.

 Escape Mission (Easy Mode)
 You must collect at least 8 main 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 candy will have more weight than bonus candy.
 We'll list the ranking of everyone who collected the most candy at the end of the event~

4. Get Badges

Challengers who collect 1-7 main candy pieces (not bonus candy) will receive a mansion badge
because they're still trapped inside!


Challengers who collect 8-16 main candy pieces (not bonus candy) will receive a candy badge
—for successfully escaping the mansion with their candy stash.



Mansion Closes in...

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

12AM Pacific | 3AM Eastern | 8:00 Central Europe | 16:00 Japan

I have never joined these kind of event because I don't know how to play this kind of games :c
I can try this event and see if I can manage to escape the mansion or not.
Edit I started to understand the rules of the game, it's kind of fun solving these questions.

Gonna be honest, though MAL was gonna be dead forever but you're actually doing quite a lot of things this year. Making use of the badges as prize for events, the genre update, the opening and ending section update and other things maybe which I don't know about. I will glady particate in this event (cuz it seems fun) and thanks for trying to make MAL better.

The possibility that the post below me is a meticulously well-crafted shitpost, is rather high.

So far could get only through one of these. These are actually pretty difficult or I'm just dumb. But just one is enough to get a badge~

You just join the MALoween club, and in the club discussion there's the challenges you need to do. Each discussion has a pretty detailed rules how to play and there's a google form where to put your answers to the challenge problems. Most of the problems with MAL games are riddles, database searching, quizzes and such.

Nah, we just make a joke on an anime title each year. "Omae wa Mou, Shindeiru" also comes from "Tantei wa Mou, Shindeiru."

Are you sure you want to be trapped with those mad hatter residents for an entire year? It only takes 7 more candy pieces to escape! Kabo-chan's Playrooms are the easiest and should start opening soon.

I'mma be honest with y'all, I don't care about the Halloween event, but I like the black menu bar with the orange accent, it looks slick.
Now give us dark mode, MAL mods. Thanks.

It's a vanity URL, so shouldn't be expired. Discord has been acting a bit finicky the last few days though, so try again!

@skadey If your friend can join but the link didn't load for you, then that's on Discord's side. Right now some of my channels are showing empty messages. So they must be having problems.

Candy Counting in Progress!
If the mansion hosts didn't already have frayed strings to the land of the living, they would have one foot in the grave after this intense event! We know you're all excited to have your badges and final candy count announced. Please give us some time to catch our breaths and get everything into order.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who made it out for MALoween✟Mansion this year! Was it the app? Was it the badge? I'm not sure the cause, but this year our participation exploded! Thanks for bearing with us as we struggled to meet ~4x our usual turnout.

Please don't forget to thank our event staff! MALoween would not run or function without Snowical, so be sure to give him lots of cookies. A huge thanks to all of this year's hosts who took the time to create and run their own rooms: Aiimee, anime-prime, firefractal, Gilrin, Luna, Naruleach, Phloup, Rachiba, and tingy. It's their creativity and effort that keeps the rooms fresh each year. A special thanks this year to Denji, Dreik55, Kunii, and Tensho for helping out behind the screams.

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