Halloween Ghost Hunting
An update was released to Cubic Castles in October of 2016, where spooky ghosts, known as plasms, would appear around mines and in realms. However specific plasms would only appear in certain environments or mines. This event involves catching the plasms and requires a two qbee team to do so. One qbee needs to wear a psychic revelation hat so the plasm can be seen, and the other needs to wear a psychic repulsion hat to effectively repel the plasm into a trap. Once caught the plasm can be transferred into a containment unit for all to see and be kept on display this way even after Halloween.
Cubic Halloween Town
For Halloween 2016 Horus hosted a building contest with an entry fee of 5000 cubits. To win the building contest you just had to build the creepiest candy-distributing house. Each plot was based on three factors (creepiness, house design, and how good their plot's front yard is). The contest ended November 6th 2016.
