All,

      This thread has been updated to reflect the addition of the new Fall Room.  I have also added some notes in the "Seasonal Room Friends" section; one to warn players about the "Private Room not displaying" glitch and to offer the usual solution about changing something in it, and one to discuss the problem of room switching.

      Staff, I'd like to display a post with a link to this thread in the Welcome folder for a few days, as I think we have some new folks for this event.  If you don't feel it would be appropriate, I understand.

Thanks bunches for all the seasonal play info, but I am still very confused about the 2 Halloween rooms. I was hoping to switch back and forth every 24 hours so my friends have access to both rooms. How do I know if my room isn't showing up for people? Should I just change something before I log out for the day just to be sure?

Also, concerning the ghosts, while my book is far from full, I already have doubles and triples of the same ghost. Is there a purpose for these extras? I sure hope so because I have run out of traps and it seems a shame that I "wasted" my trap inventory. I'm a relative newbie (level 26) and don't seem to ever have enough of anything.

In stating that, I must thank you and all friended castle dwellers for their generosity and kindness. Without the help from you and my friends, the game would've moved way too slow to keep my interest. I am having an absolute GREAT time neglecting my regular life to play this game! And now with this Halloween twist, well....it's a good thing I live alone, lol. My poor dog has taken to sleeping a LOT!

Dudette,

      You are quite welcome!  The seasonal events keep getting bigger, and for very new players who happen to join right before the event and are still learning the basic ropes, they can be overwhelming, so I'm happy to help!

     There is no way to tell "in-game" if your room is not showing up.  Sometimes people will be able to add it to their names to alert their friends, something like DudetteRmNoShow.  If both you and your friend are members of the forum, then of course, they'll just contact you here.  Barring either of those situations, it's a good idea to purchase at least two cheap items of furniture (like the ghost albums) for every room.  The first time that you open or re-open a room, switch those items around just to be safe.  This only applies the first time you open a room for a season; after that it seems to work just fine.  Since you're planning to display both Fall Rooms, I'd do it once for each the first time you display them.

      As to the duplicate ghosts, there is unfortunately no use for them.  As far as we can tell, there are two randomization processes going on there; when you go to a room, you are randomly given one of the 12 sets available.  If you click on the ghost, it then randomly selects one of the nine designs for that set.  It has nothing to do with how many you've already collected of that option, so all you can do is "waste traps" until your lucky number comes up.  As I said in the thread, some people complete all the new ghosts within the first couple of hours, and some spend hundreds of traps and still end up missing one.  For me, I usually complete one set fairly quickly (I've already finished the Night Bats), need four or five days to complete the second set, and take about two to two and a half weeks to get the last one of the last set.  It's all normal for this game!

Astra...Thank you! You are such a lady! A Castle encyclopedia and wow, am I grateful!

I finally figured out how to see if someone answered my posts, lol. I am woefully unskilled on social media.  I would like you and the Castle community to know that I am having a great time playing and can't wait to be in the 93 club of wise wizards someday.

Thank you for this wonderful and clear detail. I am new-new to  MC. Started during the Anniversary. Didn't know anything about the entire MC game so I thought I was seeing the 'normal' until it stopped! Fortunate for me there were several who sensed my confusion They hoped in to help & be support. Now this new [next] season has started. Was quite overwhelming. I believe I now have a better understanding and idea how to be a Community-Partner.
