[2019] Halloween Scavenger Hunt

[2019] Halloween Scavenger Hunt

Recommended Posts

Put on your masks, makeup, and your witches’ hats;
Because everyone can join!
Young, old, artist, non-artist, passer-by, moose's, 
potato's, any living or my favorite… non-living may join.
Everyone is welcome to our tricky treat event!

The objective here is to find the H-A-L-L-O-W-E-E-N letters. 
There will be clues for each letter located below, 
so, once you find a user's house send a PM to the Haveners with "Trick or Treat!"
You may either get a treat or be tricked so cross those ghoulish fingers and toes!




Now let's go over some rules, shall we?

This event is pretty much the same concept as 
"trick or treating" in real life as you'll be passing by houses for candy. Except in this scenario you're passing by user’s houses.
The rules are very simple so pay attention or you’ll get quite the trick!


🎃 No cheating, that takes away the fun! (This includes telling others where the letters are!)
🎃 You may ask your riddle giver for a hint, but do not tell others who you asked help from. You can ask for a max of 3 hints.
🎃 Do not post your results/findings here!
🎃 PM all letters and screenshots in one message to @Ferici
🎃 Please don't harass the person you PM if you can't solve the riddle.
🎃 Don't be mad if they appear to be a trickster, just move on. 
🎃 Only PM users that have a house on their profile.






🎃The scavenger hunt lasts Oct. 21st - Oct. 31st
🎃Word: H - A - L - L - O - W - E - E - N
🎃Houses will be spread across their profiles in their "About me".
🎃Their houses will look like one of these:


🎃The letters you will receive looks like this:

Q: Will you be placing houses on Trickster/Treaters information on October 17th or now?

A: I will be putting them on your/their profiles on the events starting date, October 16th. You can make it pretty by adding it in a table and such.


Q: Do I need to PM you the screenshot of the people that guessed the riddles?

A: It's not needed as I am trusting you to be a fair Trickster/Treater.


Q: Do I give the users 1 hint at a time so that it allows them to attempt answering the riddle correctly with a max of 3 hints?

A: Yes, give them 1 hint at a time to allow them to try and figure it out. If they get it wrong give them another until you hit 3, max.


Q: If after answering wrong after being given the three hints, do I still reveal myself as a Trickster/Treater? Or do I need to wait till they answer correctly?

A: Unfortunately, no you don't reveal yourself or the answer, but you DO direct them to other houses for more luck.


Q: Do I need to give the riddle to one person or to everyone?

A: Only to the people that PM you with "Trick or Treat".


Q: When giving the letter out do I put the subject as just "the letter", and in the message the image of the pumpkin + letter?

A: You don't have to change the subject of the message, just give them the letter as reply (pumpkin with letter). Here's an example.


Q: So I know that after the 3 hints, I don't reveal myself, but do I answer the riddle or no?
Do they get unlimited attempts at guessing the riddle right after the 3 hints?

A: No, you don't allow them to keep answering or trying. You direct them to another house for more luck. If they continue to try and answer, just leave it be.

Okay question do you have to be active all day? Or just part of the day 


Part of the day is fine! As long as you are available to answer the pms at least once a day, you should be fine :)

But remember, if you go days without answering your pms, you won't be able to participate as a volunteer next year.
