The game is a tile-matching puzzle similar to ''[[Wikipedia:SameGame|SameGame]]'' wherein the player clears groups of adjoining tiles by clicking on them. Clearing tiles close to crows causes the birds to flee. More wrappers and crows fall from the top of the game screen to replace the cleared tiles. The player can equip 5 different tools from a row of buttons at the bottom of the Trade Inn interface. These tools have different effects to help clear tiles. The game starts with 3 of each tool available. Clearing 10 or more tiles at a time will earn the player a bonus tool from the Curio Collector. The game ends when there are no more possible moves and all tools are used up.

Hallowed Nights is a seasonal event in Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign, that first took place during the Halloween Season from October 18, 2016 until November 8, 2016. In 2017, it started on October 30, and ended on December 4, concurrently with The Forge event. In 2018, it started on October 25, and ended on December 3. In 2019, it began on October 24.[1]

During the event, many exclusive features are available for players to enjoy, such as Halloween-themed Skins, Trinkets, Candies, the Candy Bag and the Mad Scientist Lab. Also, Pumpkin Lanterns, Pumpkins, and special Set Pieces can be found scattered around the world.

Players can revisit this event by setting Events to Hallowed Nights in the world creation menu. Halloween-themed event-only skins will be disabled when revisiting the event, and Halloween Trinkets traded to the Pig King will return one Gold Nugget in place of Candies.

In 2017, nine more Trinkets were added to the game. Their spawn codes are "trinket_38...46".

The Mad Scientist Lab is a craftable Structure introduced in the 2018 version of the event. It is found in the Science Tab and requires two Electrical Doodads and two Cut Stone to craft. It is always available to craft and does not require prototyping.

Standing next to the Mad Scientist Lab grants players access to the Mad Science Tab where they can conduct several experiments to produce potions. Each of these experiments causes the player to lose a certain amount of their Sanity.

Most of these experiments have several possible outcomes, however, they are all of positive effect for the players. As the cooking process takes a certain amount of time, their results are not immediately available for usage.

The following experiments can be conducted in the Mad Science Tab:

Ghost Decoration Halloween Decorations

Halloween Decorations are Halloween exclusive items introduced in the 2018 version of the event. They can be found scattered around the world or by harvesting Tumbleweeds and digging up Graves. Each of them stack up to 40 items.

They cannot be traded with the Pig King, and can only be put on Totally Normal Trees, serving no other purpose than decoration.

The following Decorations are available, and their spawn codes are "halloween_ornament_1...6".

When chopping Trees or opening Chests, there is a small chance that a swarm of bats will spawn. They will fly around the screen, damaging the player's sanity and making them unable to move for a few seconds. Drinking a Phobic Experiment will negate the sanity loss. This feature was introduced in 2018.

Ravin' Wrapper Raiders

Curio Collector Mini Game
I've done witnessed a murder! And they're stealin' all my hard-earned candy wrappers!

–Curio Collector

Introduced in 2019, a minigame called Ravin' Wrapper Raiders was added to the Trade Inn. Upon visiting the Inn, a crow can be seen perched on the Inn's interface. Clicking on the crow activates the minigame. The usual Trade Inn interface changes to an 8 x 5 grid with tiles containing a random assortment of candy wrappers and at least one crow. The premise of the game is that the crows have stolen the Curio Collector's candy wrapper collection and it is up to the player to help him scare the crows away.

The game is a tile-matching puzzle similar to SameGame wherein the player clears groups of adjoining tiles by clicking on them. Clearing tiles close to crows causes the birds to flee. More wrappers and crows fall from the top of the game screen to replace the cleared tiles. The player can equip 5 different tools from a row of buttons at the bottom of the Trade Inn interface. These tools have different effects to help clear tiles. The game starts with 3 of each tool available. Clearing 10 or more tiles at a time will earn the player a bonus tool from the Curio Collector. The game ends when there are no more possible moves and all tools are used up.

Completing the game with a certain amount of points will reward the player with the Curio Collector Profile Icon.[Verification Needed] (<= 25505 earns the reward)

Prototype Tips

  • It is a good idea to trade Halloween Trinkets with the Pig King with several empty Inventory slots, since the Pig King is generally located in a Pig Village and Pigs will try to eat the dropped Halloween Candies when they spot them.

Placeholder Trivia

  • The Monkey Paw, one of the Halloween Trinkets, is a reference to the horror short story The Monkey's Paw by W. W. Jacobs.
  • The Halloween Trinkets and Candies added in 2017 are inspired by Klei Entertainment's other games Griftlands, Hot Lava and Oxygen Not Included.
    • The Binoculars, Lone Glove, Snail Scale and Otherworldly Jawbreaker are references to Griftlands.
    • The Goop Canister, Toy Cobra, Crocodile Toy and Lava Pepper are references to Hot Lava.
    • The Broken Terrarium, Odd Radio, Broken Hairdryer, and Candy Lice are references to Oxygen Not Included.
  • Wigfrid can eat most of the Halloween Candies but refuses to eat Not-So-Candy Corn, Raisins, "Raisins" and Lava Peppers.
  • Trinket 46 used to be the Duplicated Pumpkin, as seen in the game files from earlier, but it was changed to the Broken Hairdryer upon release.
  • The Candy Bag resembles the character Oogie Boogie from the Nightmare Before Christmas movie.
