|This page contains information regarding the Halloween Event 2021.|
Much of the content below is copied verbatim from Castle Cats and is therefore copyrighted by PocApp.
Halloween 2021 is a full Castle Cats event added in app version 3.2. It began on September 27 and is scheduled to run through November 13. An update to app version 3.2.1 was released on September 28 to fix bugs related to the materials boost. An update to app version 3.2.2 was released on October 4.
The event introduces four new heroes so far: Fortuna and Wadjet, who can be purchased with real money, and two more who can be crafted in Alchemy. Many of the 28 previous Halloween cats are also available for recruitment and others will become available as the event continues.
New guild leader customization options are available in the Event Shop, as are two new and seven returning hero outfits. Items from past Halloween events are available in the prize pool of the Event Box. The Event Badge and Event Pass offer prizes for players based on how much of the event they complete.
The event includes an 18-quest campaign, currently in progress, with quests released every other day or so. The story so far features the following characters (in order of appearance): Romeo, Juliet, Fortuna, Pipsqueak, and Molotov. A transcript of the dialog is being recorded as the story unfolds.
While the event is live, rewards for event-specific, normal and battle quests at quest level 4 and above can include bats, bones and pumpkins, Halloween event materials that can be used to craft hero eggs and plushies and acquire new guild leader items. These materials can also be purchased as microtransactions in the Event Shop.
|2000 of each Halloween material||$14.99 USD||+750|
1000 of each Halloween material,
300 gems and Kittysticks
|1000 of each Halloween material||$7.99 USD||+400|
|500 of each Halloween material||$4.99 USD||+250|
The quest selection screen includes 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 will double event materials from quest rewards and purchasing two or more microtransaction cats will triple them. These boosts last for the duration of the event and replace the ad boost option.
The Event Shop currently offers two new Halloween heroes as microtransaction purchases and ten previous premium Halloween cats for 300 gems each. Additional heroes are added to the shop periodically, usually on Fridays. It is expected that the remaining six previous Halloween purchase heroes will be added to the shop eventually and a third new microtransaction hero will be released with the mid-event update.
Two new Halloween heroes can be crafted in Alchemy, from the Monster Egg (Mythic) and the Baby Shark Egg. Ten crafting cats from previous Halloween events are also available. One additional crafting cat is expected to be released with the mid-event update, and the remaining two returning Alchemy heroes will be made available on successive Mondays as the event continues.

|Totals||6000 of each material (+1600 of each material)||22d (+6d)||12 cats|
Note: Plushies can only be unlocked in guilds that have reached level 50.
To celebrate Halloween, Stitch occasionally comes trick-or-treating at the guild hall. Tapping on Stitch each time he appears gives players a choice to "Treat" or "Trick" him. When "Treat" is chosen, Stitch takes a few event materials and will return for more rather quickly. When "Trick" is chosen, Stitch causes mayhem in the guild hall in various ways. The duration between Stitch's return visits is much longer after he has been tricked. Four plushies from the Halloween Event 2020 are available again this year; players who unlocked them last year will find them in the Alchemy station available for crafting or, if already crafted, with a green check mark. It is believed there is at least one new plushie introduced with the current event.
Guild Leader Items
The following new guild leader customizations are available in the Event Shop.
|Item||Cost per Variant||# Variants|
|Hooded Costumes||4 Variants|
|Scruffy Fur||3 Variants|
|Snake Face||3 Variants|
|Sparkling Vampire Kyle|
The Event Box is shown in the final tab of the Event Shop window. It can be purchased for 50,000 coins every 2 days or for 60 gems otherwise at any time. Players get a free box at the start of the event as well. For each box purchase, a player receives one of the nine prizes shown in the window, chosen at random. The prize pool, which is automatically refreshed every day at midnight local time, can 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 includes the following:
- All 16 previous Halloween premium heroes: Sabrina, Pumpy, Jörgen, Rose, Silver, Night Queen, Hilda, Harvey, Lucy, Adriel, Surana, Marie, Xerxes, Lune, Ace, Ratchet.
- All seven previous Halloween hero outfits, one for each of the following cats: Conan, Catniss, Francis, Pipsqueak, Kyle, Mewton and Purrcilla.
- More than 80 different guild leader items from the Halloween events in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.
- Various resources in the following fixed amounts:
- Gems: 50, 30, 20
- Reputation tokens: 12, 9, 6, 3
- Event materials: 300, 200, 100, 50
- Rare embers: 5, 3
- Common embers: 10, 5
Players can earn up to ten event badges by acquiring new event content and completing event quests. Prizes are awarded for obtaining 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10 badges. Note that not all content needed to complete all badges has been released yet. Progress is tracked and prizes can be claimed in the Event Badges window accessed by tapping the bat icon in the bottom left of the guild hall screen.
Note: Real-money purchases are required to earn the Recruiter badge, which is fitting given that the reward for earning all badges, a 14-day VIP ticket, is useful only to players who have made at least $10 in real-money purchases.
|Recruiter||Purchase New Premium Heroes||1||Fortuna, Wadjet|
|Alchemist||Craft New Hero Eggs||1||Monster Egg (Mythic) (Juan)|
Baby Shark Egg (Darla)
|Artisan||Purchase Guild Leader Items||1||One variation per type of item|
|Lorekeeper||Complete Event Quests||10||Event Quests|
The Event Pass awards prizes as players collect event materials; additional rewards are available to players who purchase the Gold Pass for 450 gems. Materials requirements increase as players advance through ten stages and act only as criteria, not costs; that is, no materials are taken from inventory as prizes are claimed. The Event Pass window can be found by tapping the bat icon in the bottom left of the guild hall screen and then opening the third tab on the right.
Requirements and Rewards
Rewards include exclusive guild leader items and tickets that can be used to open the Event Box (pink with gold star) and to refresh the prize pool of the box (blue with circular arrow). It is unclear whether these tickets will expire at the end of the event or be carried over into the next: The Castle Cats developaws are still considering the matter. The Gold Pass can be purchased at any time to receive rewards retroactively from stages already cleared.
