The Spooky Bulldog is the grand prize and you will only be able to win one of them.

Glad you guys love this so much! I can confirm that the ghost will continue to fly around the Crystal Ball after the event ends. :)

You may see little ghosts around your farm (like the pic below). Don't be alarm. They are little teasers from S8. If you don't see them, don't worry about missing out cos they only start to give us loots when the event starts. For now, they are just teasers.


This is a little teaser for our upcoming Halloween event! Once the event starts, these cute little ghosts will drop valuable loot. :)

Preparations Prior to Event
We don't know what type of event this will be but we can prepare in advance in case we need it for the event. Here are some tips from Judy and myself.

Align your deliveries before event starts. Discard those deliveries which you can't fulfil. Be ready to send off all deliveries if event requires when it starts.

Have all your machines working non stop but ensure they are done working when the event starts in case you have to make a special event item.

Have all animals (i.e. cows, chickens, pigs, sheep) ready to collect at event time. Likewise for all fruit trees.

Stock up some mining tools if you can. Feed your pets for tools. Hopefully we won't need to mine but stock some just in case.

Do not gift your neighbours till event starts and see if gifting is one of the goals.
For a past event, the first task was to gift 3 neighbours and most of us had gifted our neighbours many hours earlier and could not start the event until the next game reset or use gems to skip.

Check Stormie shop and see if she sells you an event item.
P.S. If Stormie sells you an event item, pls post and share with us. Thanks.


Get Started

Buy a Spooky Tree from the Market.
Complete deliveries to collect upgrade parts to upgrade your Spooky Tree. See below for upgrade info.
Upgrade your Spooky Tree to get more candies.
Craft these candies into candy bags at the Witch's Den.
Turn in the candy bags for respective prize category.
Collect all prizes of the category to win the grand prize of that category.
Collect all 3 grand prizes and win a pet ghost.


And don't forget to pop the ghosts appearing on your farm for their loots.

There is no order of prize category to start. You can turn in any category randomly.

E.g. The grand prize of the 3rd category is Spooky Bulldog. Collect all prizes of that category and you will get him once you complete the prize collection. You may get duplicates of each prize before you get the last prize to complete the collection.

The deluxe Witch's Den should be identical to the coin Witch's Den. They both craft the same items in the same quantity but deluxe Witch's Den crafts 30 times faster.

Spooky Tree Upgrade Information
Note: The timer resets after each upgrade, so collect first and then upgrade. Otherwise you lose the pending candies.

This screen shows that you can collect 1 candy at every 4 hours interval from your Spooky Tree. The arrow points to 2 candies means you can collect 2 candies if you upgrade your Spooky Tree to the next stage. To know what stage your Spooky Tree is at, click on your Spooky Tree, a caption will appear on the bottom right of your screen.

These upgrade parts are random drops from deliveries. You can also check Stormie shop daily and see if she sells you an upgrade part.

Stages of upgrade
There are altogether 9 stages. Collection interval is 4 hrs for all stages.
Stage 1 gives 1 candy.
To upgrade to Stage 2 requires 1 of each upgrade part - gives 2 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 3 requires 2 of each upgrade part - gives 3 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 4 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 4 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 5 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 5 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 6 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 6 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 7 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 7 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 8 requires 4 of each upgrade part - gives 8 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 9 requires 5 of each upgrade part - gives 9 candies.
(24 of each upgrade part for full upgrade)

You do not need upgrade parts once your Spooky Tree is fully upgraded. Sell off your excess parts to help others.

Btw, do you get this pop for android?

@FrozenTurtle and @Kooky. Need your help with these questions. TIA. :)

• What is the minimum level to participate in this event?
• Is this for Android players? It'll be great if it's for both IOS and Androids. :)
• If this is a luck event, is there a limit on how many Spooky Bulldog we are allow to win?

Ill be on the road when this starts but will try to begin and see what needs to be done. Whether its a collection and luck event or not, im ready. Even though my luck was bad for the last two, I actually prefer them more. I just know I wont have enough gems right now to get whatever building is needed. But ill try. For the last event I didnt bother with purchasing a building. But if the pets and decor are cute, I will. I dont really care for another bulldog but if there is something different, then yes ill go crazy for it!

There were some events when we had to collect items and turn in a collection. Items were won randomly, sort of like a draw. And some players turned in dozens of collections and won nothing good. And some were able to turn in 5 or less and won the grand prizes. But based on the message from Kooky, it wont be this type of event.

Which means it will be some type of goals....make such and such and turn it in, then move on to the next part. Just PLEASE dont let it include anything needed from the mine or pond. My numbers of items needed to use both are WAY low.

PookieBear50
10-14-15, 01:45 PM
I'm not too worried about the mine, but PLEASE don't let it be an event where we have to craft a special bait that MAY (but is not guaranteed to) catch what we need to complete a goal...this is probably even more frustrating than waiting through 10 days for new collection items to unlock and hoping to win the grand prize.

10-14-15, 04:55 PM
Since I already have the Birthday Bulldog I guess this won't be too stressful for me. Sure hope they have some cool prizes. Someone has a really neat animated witch broom I would love to have. Must have been from last year. Was hoping it would show up in the tree house but no luck yet yet. Wish they would have done a black cat for the grand prize.

Strange, I was looking at the Halloween fs2 that I still have on my iPad......my Halloween skins and decor did not transfer to the "newer" versions. Then when I compared the latest version to my Halloween version, none of the newer event buildings show on the older version! Whatsupwiththat!?!

Edited: pets didn't cross from one to the other, but 2 out of the 3 habitats did.......?

Okay, I guess I'm ready for the event to start. I have 7 of 8 orders ready to send out when I get home from work (just couldn't find 2 more Salmon to make a second plate of fish--can't remember what it's called), I didn't harvest any of the trees or bushes since yesterday, whatever I harvested will have grown back by the time I'm home, all my animals will be ready to be collected from, and some (but not all) of the crafting stations were working on items or had items waiting before I left for work.

The one thing I'm really, really hoping is that there isn't going to be a special bait that I need to craft. After having to deal with that for Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day, I really don't want to do it again.

The difference is that you have to make deliveries to get parts to upgrade the Spooky Tree similar to Piper's Castle. And you collect ingredients from the tree. I'm currently on stage 2, not sure how many stages there are.. But the rest is just like 2nd Bday Event.

I have filled my farm with all kind of stuff and left only a square with empty space, so the ghost/butterflies/moles will only appear in this specific place, it's very easy to collect and spot them rather than moving around whole farm trying to find them :)

It looks like anything we make in the spooky house can be bought and sold except the candy bags. You can buy and sell upgrade parts too.

I'd still like to know if the only way to win the spooky dog is from the gold machine. Can we get one by doing all goals? Should we do the goals or concentrate on the gold machine to try to win the dog?

Remember when upgrading the tree that it resets the timer, so wait until you collect from it and upgrade at that point.

I have 2 Salmons. Add me then I'll put up on sale after.

I agree, I'd LOVE to keep the Halloween theme on the farm, and be able to switch themes. Especially since the train and train station look so amazing right now.

Spooky Tree Upgrade Information
Note: The timer resets after each upgrade, so collect first and then upgrade. Otherwise you lose the pending candies.

This screen shows that you can collect 1 candy at every 4 hours interval from your Spooky Tree. The arrow points to 2 candies means you can collect 2 candies if you upgrade your Spooky Tree to the next stage. To know what stage your Spooky Tree is at, click on your Spooky Tree, a caption will appear on the bottom right of your screen.

These upgrade parts are random drops from deliveries. You can also check Stormie shop daily and see if she sells you an upgrade part.

Stages of upgrade
There are altogether 9 stages. Collection interval is 4 hrs for all stages.
Stage 1 gives 1 candy.
To upgrade to Stage 2 requires 1 of each upgrade part - gives 2 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 3 requires 2 of each upgrade part - gives 3 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 4 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 4 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 5 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 5 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 6 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 6 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 7 requires 3 of each upgrade part - gives 7 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 8 requires 4 of each upgrade part - gives 8 candies.
To upgrade to Stage 9 requires 5 of each upgrade part - gives 9 candies.
(24 of each upgrade part for full upgrade)

You do not need upgrade parts once your Spooky Tree is fully upgraded. Sell off your excess parts to help others.

My stuff that I've gotten from the ghosts are in my barn. I have to make a bag with 8 pops. How do i get them to the bag? right now the bag shows I only have one??? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

You craft candies into bags at the Witch's Den. I've updated post 1. Hope that helps you.

It looks like anything we make in the spooky house can be bought and sold except the candy bags. You can buy and sell upgrade parts too.

I'd still like to know if the only way to win the spooky dog is from the gold machine. Can we get one by doing all goals? Should we do the goals or concentrate on the gold machine to try to win the dog?

At this point it's too early to tell if the goals are promising the spooky dog. I don't think so imho. So your best bet is to get it via the machine by completing the prize collection. FYI There was no goal promising pet during the fs2 birthday event which was the first event of this style.

Don't even know why I'm bothering with this challenge. They have made it pretty much impossible, unless you buy the 'deluxe witches den' for 300 gems. In order to get the dog you have to get the 10 items in the prize vault, so even if you go 10 for 10 (which won't happen) u will need to craft 10 candy corn bags. Each candy corn bag takes 2hrs to make (20hrs). In order to get the 1 candy corn bag u first need 13 ghosts x10 =130ghosts (which take 8 mins a piece-17.3hrs of crafting), along with the caldrens that come from the tree. In order to make a ghost you have to make 4 witches hats x130 =520(8 minutes a piece so 69.3hrs of crafting). So your looking at right around 107hrs straight of making stuff, if you have everything you need.....and u still have to wait for your tree every 3hrs to make the witches hats......so good luck with this!!!!!

I am not sure I understand what you mean. The tree can be upgraded to offer more candy and cauldrons every four hours, and then you can get two versions of the Witches Den, the regular which costs coins, and the Deluxe, which costs 300 gems. Neither of the Dens are upgradable.

I hadn't planned on buying the crystal ball--at 130 crystals, it's going to be a huge drain on what I have available--but at the rate that ghosts are NOT appearing (and the difficulty getting the first candy at all--I'm getting mostly witch hats and ghosts), I think I'm going to have no choice. At least it will make a good addition to when I finally put the decorations from last Halloween back out as a secluded cemetery section of my farm.

Those should display in your "slot" machines if you click on play. I.e. The bronze, silver and gold machines. The first bag is used by bronze, second by silver. I don't remember if there were any candy corn bags in that bundle... Which is used by gold machine

Some of the animated decorations from previous events also require being tapped on...for example, a lot of last year's Halloween decorations, this year's Easter decorations, and the fireworks and dragon from the Chinese New Year event all require being tapped on to trigger their animations.

Think of the Jack in the Box this way: the only way a real Jack in the Box works is if someone cranks it. Needing to tap it is the virtual equivalent.

OMG I did not even see that little ghosts come out of the gravestones, and you get TWO of them!!! I LOVE THIS EVENT. I have my haunted graveyard from last year, with the ghosts that fly around, and with the crystal ball ghost and the train station, I am over the moon!

I got gummy fish from hot spots, but I am guessing it is maybe 20-30% hit rate. Unscientific, though, because I have only used five or six bait, and got two gummy fish. Thankfully, the bait does not require a mined item, though, because the mine is dropping candy diamonds like CRAZY.

Lastly, what are the hot spots you are referring to when fishing? And do I need to see fish in the pond before casting?

Well, I was going to ask if the Spooky Bait was guaranteed to catch the Gummy Fish, but I guess it isn't. I am glad that the bait this time does not require anything from the mine, but if at the absolute minimum we need to catch 30 of these, I could really wish that the success rate of catching Gummy Fish were close to 100% instead of the usual 20-30% (or lower) that was common to the other event-related baits. Especially since, among other things, I'd need to alternate between making Spooky and Dough Baits since we need Anchovies to make the Spooky Bait.

I guess I have no choice but to build the second Bait Shop (I was really trying to hold out for the last Feed Mill at 200,000).

you will get the leaves if you do more and more deliveries, not guaranteed but yes you must do more plane deliveries so they will drop the leaves which is rareeely to see, from my deliveries, most of them are bats. you can probably get the leaves via bronze machine (randomly).
edit: you can also monitor your local newspaper for the sale leaves, lol... i got one from the newspaper for $3.

and the hot spot is when you are going to fish, you see like fish silhouettes moving/circling in the pond. there are three silhouettes every reset time (i don't know maybe every 10 hours or more). if you hit your baits there, you will absolutely get the double amount of the fish you catch or, double amount of experience points of a single fish (it depends on which baits you use to fish and also your luck).
you can hit your baits not on the hot spots and you will still get something. i got my candy fish not from the hot spots. leave your hot spots for catching anchovies, sea bass, catfish, tuna, or salmon. they will be definitely needed for deliveries to get the tree's upgrade parts.

I understand your frustration. In a way I feel this is the most difficult type of event out of all events. With luck event, you can win a prize pet with 5 turnins if lucky. For this event, you need to turn in 10 or 15 times before you can even stand a chance to win the prize pet. And it also has the challenge of the collection event cos you need to collect cauldron from spooky tree before you can even spin. So this style of event has BOTH challenges of luck and collection events. In short, double the difficulty of any event. I guess players like the numerous prizes in this type of event so they don't mind it's double the difficulty. Personally, I coined this as triple luck event.

No problems! I just tried to add a slot, and it all behaved perfectly.

Maybe try force closing your game and restarting your device? From what I've read on these forums, that has solved a variety of problems for different players from time to time.

Good luck! :)

I don't know how often the ghost appears, but I've noticed it appears the same time as the butterflies

(I love that little ghost! I hope I get a pet one, but not sure if I'll be able to win all the other prizes in time ... )

I've not bought the deluxe hut, but when I bought the value pack the bags weren't showing until I force closed.

I would suggest trying that, if it doesn't work post a message on the bugs forum, the mods are pretty quick to reply.

I understand your frustration. In a way I feel this is the most difficult type of event out of all events. With luck event, you can win a prize pet with 5 turnins if lucky. For this event, you need to turn in 10 or 15 times before you can even stand a chance to win the prize pet. And it also has the challenge of the collection event cos you need to collect cauldron from spooky tree before you can even spin. So this style of event has BOTH challenges of luck and collection events. In short, double the difficulty of any event. I guess players like the numerous prizes in this type of event so they don't mind it's double the difficulty. Personally, I coined this as triple luck event.



Finally got my first candy corn bag crafted, only took 2 1/2 days to get one. This event needs to go to the end of the year in order to even have a chance.......

Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem ? On farm story 2 for the Halloween event , I purchased the deluxe witches den . As I was upgrading it ( adding more slots ) . I had all the tools needed for the upgrades, instead of farm story using my tools the game used my gems ...I didn't notice it until the end when it said I didn't have enough gems for this purchase !!! 😩😩 I rebooted thinking it had to be a glitch a BIG glitch ...I sent an email to storm 8 .. And they gave me a confirmation number .. Just seeing if anyone has had this problem also. I know of 2 of my neighbors that did... One neighbor it took her tools and her gems .. With me just my gems.. I have saved up my gems by doing trains, and yes I purchased quite a few also. I just hate losing them like that.
I really do enjoy playing farm story , it offers you a chance to meet and greet new friends. thank you

I have filled my farm with all kind of stuff and left only a square with empty space, so the ghost/butterflies/moles will only appear in this specific place, it's very easy to collect and spot them rather than moving around whole farm trying to find them :)

My advise to all players to do the following before making major gem or coins purchases, (1) ensure your connection is good and (2) take a screen shot of your farm to capture your gems and coins and xp. This way you have concrete proof if anything goes wrong. Hope this helps you cos it did for me, to avoid dispute.

Did you upgrade the slots? When I upgraded the slots to the regular den it also took the coin amount that the den cost. When I tried to update the deluxe den it told me I didn't have enough gems, it appears to also require the price of the den plus the tools to open another slot.

You make 1 goody bag using 8 spooky pop in the witch den. Do you have the witch den? Use this goody bag to turn in the 1st machine to win a prize. Each turn in needs 1 goody bag and 1 cauldron. You can also use spooky pop to craft witch pop which is needed to make goody bag for 2nd machine and also ghost pop. Go through your witch den and see what it crafts.

Your aim in this event is to get the grand prizes of 3 machines. You turn in using respective goody bag and cauldron(s) for each machine. You need parts to make goody bags, you can get those parts from spooky tree and spotting ghosts. Craft goody bags in witch den. In short, use your spooky to craft, don't throw them away. Discard them in your shop if you aren't participating in this event. Hope this helps.

but i had to get rid off the orange candies, they're taking pretty much space of my barn... so i made 30+ bags to finish the bronze machine. just finished it a minute ago. pretty exhausting. now after reading your comment..... i think the gold machine takes priority now. at least i will have a spooky bulldog in the end if i am not lucky enough for the ghost pet. you should've told us earlier rynetory2, but thanks anyway! :cool:

You are so funny Raissawinda. :) well, it's my personal strategy so it isn't important to post. Different people have different play-styles and strategies so mine is not the only way and I may be wrong. You needed space so your strategy works for you. :) Personally I prefer pets to decor, so I'll work towards winning the pet. The Spooky Bulldog is the easier of the 2 pets so I'll work towards that first. Besides to win the ghost pet, you need to win the bulldog and the other two grand prizes first. Ask me next time, I'll share lol.

Working on all of them. Have a bunch of duplicates. Need 2 more to complete bronze, 8 for silver and 5 for gold. It takes forever to get enough to craft for gold......but I'm still trying. Guess I will focus on the gold!

Cauldrons (4hrs) from Spooky Tree is the bottleneck so that will give you time to craft for the gold goody bag (2hrs). Personally I'll work on gold till I get the pet. Although your bronze seems close to completion, you wouldn't know how many more turnins those 2 items will take. Anyway that's just my suggestion. Good luck. :)

i'm kind of frustrated rynetory2. luck event like this one never suit my luck and my liking. i usually leave if it is luck event. last 2 years i was on hiatus for months cuz everytime i returned to the game, the event which was going on was a luck one. my sister and my boyfriend gave up upon last summer event. remember the turtle? lol.. but yeah, now i am retired and just trying to enjoy this game and the events more. but really, my luck is nowhere to be found in my cellar. also lack of strategy. and sleep. haha T.T

I wish they will increase the Cauldron drop rate. Having to wait 4 hours for just 9 cauldron is so frustrating!! Not sure how long it will take me to complete the silver and gold machines. :(

Oh btw, dear Casper stop eating all the gummy fish! Darn! =x

When you when the golden lure prize are you able to use it? Mine shows up in the barn but not in the available bait on the pond.

Yes, you can use it. When you click on your pond there should be a little green circle with arrows in the middle of all your baits. If you click that it will cycle to your other bait. http://forums.storm8.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=25214&stc=1&d=1445368701

I have to agree. Especially with the silver machine requiring 4 Cauldrons per chance and the gold machine requiring 7, there's no way to really build-up a store of cauldrons, and the silver machine having so many more prizes than either the bronze or gold, we can only either try the Gold machine once or the Silver machine twice, but never both at once (unless we save up Cauldrons).

It would be nice if the ghost occasionally dropped Cauldrons the way it (rarely) dropped upgrade parts.

Totally understand how you feel, I'm not a big fan of luck event. This is even more difficult when you need to collect 9 items before you can try for a pet bulldog. And you need to be 3 times luckier to collect all the grand prizes to get the ghost pet. I too generally sit out of luck events. Anyway just play without expectations, it works for me. Have fun and good luck to you and everyone. :)

I wish too we get more cauldrons. I only get to spin the gold machine once every 4 hours, such a long wait. I won't be surprise if S8 sells a package of cauldrons in the next couple of days. Or they sell an additional item like the crystal ball for 180 gems to drop more cauldrons in the next such event. :)

Hey all, just a thought or two...
There's nothing to stop you from speeding the spooky tree with some gems to get the cauldrons faster (it costs 8 gems at 4 hrs and decreases by 1 gem every half hour as the timer clocks down)
It 'might' be better to save up all your treat bags to play the higher prize machines rather than once every 4 hrs.
Also check out the 'newspaper' as non-neighbors may sell event items.

Silver Machine "Prizes to Go" Bug?

My Silver machine "prizes to go"message is incorrect.
I noticed yesterday when I had 3 prizes left to go -The message announced Prizes TO Go:2.
Today I have 1 prize left to go-But my previous Prize Message said "0".
I'm worried part of the game thinks I got all my prizes -
and I won't be able to trigger my last prize (the Haunted Barn Skin) as this prize you don't receive duplicates.

Has anyone else noticed a difference in the pond? In the last few days I have been getting mostly catfish and bass. I've been crafting bait like crazy, but I rarely get the anchovies needed for the spooky bait. I've never caught so many catfish on dough bait before! When I am able to craft the spooky bait, I only catch a gummy fish about once every 3-4 tries. I haven't been able to craft a bag for the silver machine since yesterday morning, because I am waiting on the gummy fish. But I have caught 16 catfish and 10 bass. It seems a bit suspicious to me. Especially since the silver machine has the most prizes in it. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just my poor luck?

I am loading up on catfish all of a sudden...don't think it's a coincidence ;P the silver bags are definitely the most challenging ones to make because of the fish, but I'm not going to stress just yet.

Don't know if coincidence or not, but I've built up 15+ baits twice so far. I keep casting right in the middle of the pond, one right after another and have gotten gummies almost every time. I used the golden lures that I won in the gold machine and casted away from the 'hot spots' to catch multiple anchovies at once, instead of trying to craft the dough bait at the same time as the Halloween bait.......but still haven't finished any of the machines after multiple doubles. Thanks to everyone selling extra stuff. I have been crafting non stop the whole time....hopefully I'll end up winning something

It is cheaper to speed up the cauldrons. It cost more to speed up the spooky bait, plus you might not even get gummy fish. Very strange that you are not guaranteed gummy fish and there is no other way to get gummy fish. So mad at gummy fish right now.

A little late on this post but anyway...

Keep checking the newspaper & stormie... I bought a lot of upgrade parts from there. Whenever you see any upgrade parts buy them. It takes up a little bit of your barn but makes upgrading faster. I haven't spent one penny on anything on any of the games I play and with a little strategizing & patience have been moving along quite well.

No, it isn't just you! that is my only complaint about this game. I have never seen anyone selling off gummie fish! We go to all the trouble to craft the special bait and yet we are not guaranteed Gummy Fish. Can't get enough cauldrons either. :( Starting to lose interest in this quest.

Does anyone know if it is possible to win a second windmill skin or are we limited to one? I've finished the gold machine and would like to have matching windmills, but don't want to waste my time if we can only have one. I too have finished the bronze and gold. I just need the pumpkin patch but I keep winning duplicates of items I have already.

I was able to paint both windmills after only winning the skin once. I just clicked on both of them and hit the little paint can and it gave me the option to change them both.

I am with you all on this. It is tough to get gummy fish. Personally I think the game challenges you when you need something, imho. Remember when we needed iron for event baits? We got mostly silver and gold from mine. We needed ruby for crafting the dragon, we get everything but ruby. Now we need anchovy to make spooky baits, we get bass and catfish. Oh well, at least now there's no shortage of bass and catgfish lol.

Fun game, but in all honesty I don't have any use for 6 mailboxes.

In events like this, instead of repeats of useless decorations, perhaps they can give us one gem or 10 coins or something? Couple xp points? Anything but a repeat decoration.

No kidding. I have been building up gold spins. Just played the gold one 15 more times (needed 5 to win) out of the 5 I needed, only got 2, so still 3 more, after 30+ times playing. But don't worry, I have 9 coffins.....just what I wanted.

The post below says the ghost from the crystal ball will continue to fly around it after event. It's not referring to the pet ghost. That's what you are asking, correct? Hope I read your question correctly.

I.e. The crystal ball's animation continues the same way after the event.


Glad you guys love this so much! I can confirm that the ghost will continue to fly around the Crystal Ball after the event ends. :)
