Pumpkinheads, Bad Rhymes and Graveyards: Halloween Returns to Forge of Empires

Fiendish troubadour Jack’o lantern is back - and rewards veterans and new players with exclusive buildings

Hamburg, October 23, 2013. Today, InnoGames launched this years’ Halloween questline for its strategic city-builder Forge of Empires. The enigmatic Jack O’lantern will go toe-to-toe with clever players, confusing them with his infamous rhymed riddles. At the end of the questline waits a special reward for everyone who’s clever enough to outsmart the ghastly gourd.

But there’s more: not only will there be new and unique character pictures to unlock; whoever missed out on last year’s special building, the cemetery, gets a chance to obtain it this year. Players that already own the building, won’t lose their bragging rights though - Jack O’ Lantern might give their cemeteries a unique boost of their own.can you already hear him creeping about?

                          “It's the spookiest time of the year

                       And we've got something for you to fear:

                          There's a figure in a pumpkin mask

                          With quests to set and riddles to ask”
