Halloween 2020 is a full event in Castle Cats that was added in version 2.14. It started on October 5, with a mid-event update on October 30, and ended on November 22.
The event introduced seven new cats: Xerxes, Lune and Ace, who could be purchased with real money; Ratchet, who can be bought for gems; and Lucas, Vaati and Cookie who could be acquired through Alchemy. It also featured the return of all 21 previous Halloween cats.
New Guild Leader customization options were available in the Event Shop, as were seven returning Hero Outfits. Previous Halloween items were available in the prize pool of the Event Box.
The Halloween quest line has a transcript page.
Rewards for event-specific, normal and battle quests during this time included bats, bones and pumpkins, event materials that could be used to craft hero eggs and plushies, and acquire new guild leader items. Event materials could also be purchased as microtransactions in the Event Shop.
|2000 of each Material||$14.99 USD||+750|
|1000 of each Material||$7.99 USD||+400|
|500 of each Material||$4.99 USD||+250|
The quest selection screen included a materials boost button offering the option to watch an ad and get double event materials from quest rewards for 30 minutes. Alternatively, purchasing a new premium hero for real money would double event materials from quest rewards and purchasing two or more microtransaction cats would triple event materials from quest rewards; these boosts lasted for the duration of the event and replaced the ad boost option.
The Event Shop offered three new and one returning Halloween heroes as real-money purchases, another new hero available for gems, and the remaining previous premium heroes sold for gems.
|Night Queen||300 Gems||-|
|Total, Gems||3600 Gems||-|
Three new Halloween hero eggs could be crafted in Alchemy, the Spider Egg, the Mummified Dark Egg and the Cat? Egg, all of which were Merge Alchemy eggs. Nine Alchemy cats from previous Halloween events were also available.

To celebrate Halloween, Stitch occasionally came trick-or-treating at the guild hall. You would tap on Stitch each time he appeared and choose either "Treat" or "Trick" from the pop-up window. When "Treat" was chosen, Stitch would take a few event materials and was likely to return for more rather soon. When "Trick" was chosen, Stitch caused mayhem in the guild hall by enshrouding it in purple fog, setting fire to the cauldron, or entangling the materials stations in vines. The duration between Stitch's return visits was much longer after he had been tricked. Halloween plushie recipes could be unlocked by treating Stitch and cleaning up after his mischief.

The event box was shown in the final tab of the Event Shop window. It could be purchased for 50,000 coins every 2 days or for 60 gems otherwise at any time. Players received a free box at the start of the event as well. For each box purchase, a player received one of the nine prizes shown in the window, chosen at random. The prize pool, which was automatically refreshed every day at midnight, could also be reset by watching an ad, and then for successively higher gem prices starting at 5 gems.
The overall prize pool for the event box included the following:
- All 12 previous Halloween premium heroes: Sabrina, Pumpy, Jörgen, Rose, Silver, Night Queen, Hilda, Harvey, Lucy, Adriel, Surana, Marie.
- All seven Halloween hero outfits.
- More than 50 different guild leader items from the Halloween events in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
- Varying amounts of several different resources, including event materials, gems, embers, and reputation tokens.
Players could earn up to 10 event badges by acquiring new event content and completing event quests. Prizes were awarded for obtaining 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10 badges. Progress was tracked and prizes could be claimed in the Event Badges window accessed by tapping the bat icon in the bottom left of the guild hall screen.
|Recruiter||Purchase New Premium Heroes||1||Xerxes, Lune, Ace|
|Alchemist||Craft New Hero Eggs||1||Lucas, Vaati, Cookie|
|Artisan||Purchase Guild Leader Items||1||One variation per type of item|
|Lorekeeper||Complete Event Quests||8||Event Quests|
Note: The Recruiter badge requires actual money to be paid, though it makes sense considering the final reward of a 14-day VIP ticket needs a $10 purchase to be useful.
