Forge of Empires Jack O’ Lantern Halloween riddles start

It is hard to believe three days went that quick since we reported about Forge of Empires launching Jack O’ Lantern riddles for Halloween 2013. We can now confirm that Jack O’ Lantern is appearing in Forge of Empires and we have had our first riddle to solve this morning.

While we cannot confirm if everyone will start with the same riddles, our Jack O’ Lantern gave a riddle that basically asked us to build decorations, so we did this with the cheapest ones available and that worked just fine.

Our second riddle ended up being about building different types of roads, although we suspect the Halloween tasks in Forge of Empires will get a lot harder each time Jack O’ Lantern sets a new riddle.

If you have had the same Halloween quests in Forge of Empires via the Jack O’ Lantern, then please leave a comment below to confirm everyone gets set the same order. If this is the case, then online gamers can help each other if they get stuck on a certain riddle for the Halloween 2013 event.


Our current Jack O’ Lantern quest can be seen in the screenshot above and at a guess it should be about getting our workers creating supplies. The riddle states, “Get them working, do it with haste, pick up the stuff, and don’t let it waste. The smallest product I want from you, bring me nine o’em and you’ll solve this too”. Small build times this time by the looks of it, and we can confirm that was the solution after doing some 5 minute production times.

The rewards we received in this Halloween event so far are small points packages. In time, we guess the Forge of Empires bonuses will get more attractive.

Number 13 got me this time I know recruit five units but what type? Not so light, not so heavy not so range, and not so fast. Five I want amassed. but there one additional task They share the same age this what I ask.
So what units and what age?


Ok I tried to delete five units army units did so didn’t work. The riddle says To reach the next stage Collect form the Bronze Age Then the goal you reach, when you collect five of each. I did delete five army units didn’t work. So what the heck?


My quest 10 is different…name is: “collects or collapses” and the rhyme is “to move to the next level, all those bronze age must be present, but your final goal, you have five each in your arsenal”. have you any idea?? Sorry for my english 😀


What mean “9/ Spend 13ps on a GB”
