Oktober’s ending? No fair! (Now With Optional Allusions)

As the eve of all hallows passes us by this weekend, we here at Roblox wish you all the best of luck in your candy-capturing careers as “Trick-Or-Treaters”. And to sweeten the deal, we’ve spun up a few toothy treats ourselves!

You wouldn't like Yorick when he's angry

GameStop Goody-bag Card – Halloween is a dark and frightening time; but for all of the gamers out there, we have a card designed to brighten your day (or night). In honor of our release of Roblox cards at GameStops, we’ve created a special limited-time card that will transform into one of 5 nifty classic Roblox games [BattleWagons, TicTacToe, The Adventures Of Noob Boy Part 1, Four-In-A-Row, and the Boomerang]. It may not be possible to win at everything forever–but it’s fun to try! Top Score!

BestBuy Bloxxing Card – Ghosts and ghouls can be pretty ghastly; but (in honor of releasing Roblox cards at BestBuys) the BestBuy Bloxxing Card allows you to summon forth one of several gears from THE FUTURE [XLS-Mark-II-Pulse-Laser-Pistol, Four-In-A-Row, Subspace-Tripmine, Geolocator, Binoculray, and Bloxxy-Radar]. Monsters are so much less scary when you have subspace tripmines B|. And besides–bustin’ makes me feel good!

Riddling Skull Sword – Alas, poor Yorick; I knew him well. His skull has been stolen and played with for far too long, as his rage builds and builds. A man of infinite jests–which all just ran out. Now he’s back and hunting down his lost head–he’s no joker any more. “Puzzles? Jokes? Riddles? Riddle me this!”

Ghostwalker –

The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power,

And all that beauty, all that wealth e’er gave,

Awaits alike th’ inevitable hour:-

The paths of glory lead but to the grave.

Talk about the new gear in the forums. But wait! That’s not all! Some of you may have noticed that for my blog posts this past month, I’ve been making a lot of (sometimes very sneaky) allusions and puns (movies, old bands, television shows, fairy tales, …). For those interested in talking about all this wordplay (see if you can find them all!), you can do so here. Happy hunting; and have a happy Halloween!
