Bloxtober (stylized as BLOXtober) was a Halloween event that took place throughout October 2013 on Roblox. The event was inspired by the success of the 2013 Roblox Easter Egg Hunt. The event featured purchasable gifts, Halloween costumes, and a scavenger hunt for minifigures called "BLOXikins."
Halloween 2013: The Witching Hour

The idea of a Halloween game was first introduced during the 2013 Virtual BLOXcon. The map had an area of 20,000 by 20,000 studs, making it the largest official Roblox event game to date. The map was dotted with multiple swamps, forests, and pumpkin patches. There were also several "landmarks", most of which had NPCs who would give you quests.
The point of the game was to defeat Bloxhilda, a wicked witch whose goal was to conquer and rule the city of Bloxburg, where the game takes place. Players could collect costumes and be assisted by NPCs (Roblox admins) in order to complete this task. The game contained several key components to game-play. One of these concepts was that of companions. Companions were animals that were created to aid players in completing their required tasks. They could be customized and upgraded by players as they gain more experience.
Another key component to the game-play of the place was a consumable. Consumables were items that could be purchased in game multiple times that helped players in their conquests. Some examples of things that consumables could unlock include currency, keys, and ammunition.
