Forge of Empires' Halloween event takes players into the misty fairground for tons of cool rewards

InnoGames' Forge of Empires welcomes the return of the Ringmaster as it gears up for its thrilling Halloween event. This season, the strategy civilization-building game on mobile lets players venture into the misty fairground from October 28th to November 17th.

Forge of Empires’s Halloween event features thirty rush quests and twenty-one daily quests, and clearing them rewards players with Fairground Tickets. These can be used to exchange for lanterns, candles, and flashlights that'll help clear the path for players as they navigate the mists of the fairground.

Of course, there are also a bunch of treats that go hand-in-hand with the tricks, as Pumpkins offer random rewards plus a chance at the daily special. On the other hand, Lightbulbs bring players one step closer to the Grand Prize, while Toys help unlock special quests for more rewards.

Players can also expect five event buildings - Helter Skelter, Clown Town, Wheel of Death, Mystical Organ, and Terror Teacups - that offer a wide variety of bonuses as they're upgraded. And if you missed last year's event, the Daily Special Rewards have you covered - here, you can score the chance to win buildings from the previous year (House of Horrors and the Abandoned Asylum, anyone?).

Finally, once you complete the quests, you will be able to unlock the Hellish Hangout for a four-day 20% boost on attacking.

If you're eager to join in on all the festivities during the spookiest time of the year, Forge of Empires is available to download on the iOS App Store or on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases. You can also visit the official website to know more about the latest developments in the game, or have a look at the embedded gameplay footage above to get a feel of the event.
