The Trick or Treat event is a recurring Halloween tradition on Dragon Cave, first occurring in 2010.
The first Trick or Treat event was announced by TJ09 with the following words on the forums:
- Trick or Treating
Quite a few treats (and some tricks as well) have been scattered throughout the site. Think you can collect all of them before Halloween is done?
Every five to fifteen minutes, a special trick or treat will appear on the next page. When clicked, a little pumpkin bucket would appear at the top of your scroll (if you didn't have it already), and you can click on it to see the tricks and treats you have collected.
Collecting treats for Trick or Treat events follows the same mechanics as the Festival of Eggs. Below is a guide provided by Category:SockPuppet Strangler on the forums, reworded for the Trick or Treat event:
The pumpkin bucket badges were made by Bernouli.
With subsequent "Trick or Treat" events, any user who participated in the event would retroactively receive the pumpkin badge to hold their treats. Users participating for multiple years can find all their treats under the pumpkin badge, with each year's treats separated by decorative borders.
