Haunted Castle

The Castle

In the haunted castle, you use magic tools to destroy tiles and find ghosts, similar to mining in the Mine. You may see 1 pumpkin basket in a crate during exploration, but when you see a ghost you can use the required goods to trade with 3-5 baskets for rewards.

Players have reported that ghosts often ask for carrots, sugarcane, rice, milk, eggs bread, cookies, bagesl, pumpkin pie, cream, cheese, sugar, syrup, muffins, milkshakes, ice cream, popcorn and granola. The more products they ask for, the more baskets you receive.

Tournament Rewards

The tournament unlocks once you've completed your personal goal.

Go to the tournament icon/tab and compete against 29 same-level players. If you place in the top three by the end of the event, you will receive greater rewards.

You score by trading with ghosts, not collecting scrolls.

Note on prizes for especially low or high level players (tap "Expand to view"):

You may get slightly different prizes depending on what is (still) available in your town and your level. Prizes known to be substitued include gems, boosters, zoo card packs, train/factory/island upgrade coupons, land expansion coupons. The subsitute prize is usually either Tcash or building/expansion materials. For example ,lower level players who haven't restored the airport, yet, will receive building/expansion materials instead of gems. Lower level players who don't have many animals might also get boosters or materials instead of zoo decks. High level players with all zoo animals will receive boosters or upgrade coupons.

If profile pictures are repeated, players who already have the profile picture will receive more Tcash instead.

The amount of coins for the lower ranks depend on the town level and range from 270/220/45 coins for lowest levels to 6 000/5 500/1 000 for levels 100 and higher.
