Boys and girls of every age, would you like to see something strange? Come build with us and you will see, NuNu’s town of Halloween!
Starting Monday, October 27th, we will begin a Halloween build project. We will be reconstructing a town that has lived in our imaginations since we first saw Jack Skellington’s wide grin across our television sets (or the big screen, if you saw it there first). That’s right, we’re building a town inspired by Halloween Town!
If you’ve ventured outside the CT recently, you may have noticed an odd looking tree in an area you can’t access yet. Through the pumpkin doorway lies a magical gateway to our build site.
Once the mysterious barrier is lifted and you enter the portal to Halloween town the very first thing you’ll see is the giant jack o’ lantern that serves as the build shack for the project. When you enter, you’ll notice the admins have not supplied you with any building materials (aside from some coarse dirt). We do have a list of recommended supplies we’ll need for the build. Those items are as follows:
Halloween Town Build Materials:
- Stone – We’re looking for all varieties including: stone bricks, mossy stone bricks, cracked stone bricks, stone & stone brick slabs (you do not need to bring slabs, we can craft them from the blocks).
- Cobblestone – This includes moss stone & cobblestone slabs (again, you do not need to bring the slabs, we can craft them on site).
- Dead Bushes
- Hardened Clay
- Acacia Wood – The trees in and surrounding the town will be built out of acacia logs.
- Dark Oak Wood
- Tools – If you would like to donate tools to use during the project please feel free to bring them!
- Wool – Various colors.
This is just a suggested list of items that will be key to the build. If you feel there is anything else we might need or have forgotten, please feel free to donate. However, it is important we all remember we are sticking to a theme. You can find tons of images online for inspiration to help you during the build.
The admins have marked locations for the important builds that need to be in the town. We ask that before you “claim” one of those builds as a project you let one of the admins know before removing the marker (feel free to team up to work on those builds). It’s important to remember scale as you’re building. The island the town sits on isn’t small but it’s also not huge. We want to make sure everyone has plenty of room for their builds with some open spaces for trees and landscaping.
If all the “important” builds are taken do not fret! We need residential homes in Halloween Town. There are no markers for residential homes (aside from Jack Skellington’s) so feel free to find an empty area and get to work.
The build project will end on October 31st. Take today to prepare and get ready for an awesome community experience through the following week! Some Awesome Minecraft community, is a world unlike anything I’ve ever seen and as hard as I’ve tried, I can’t seem to describe like the most improbable dream….how awesome each and every one of you are.
Have fun and take care,

P.s. When you get to Halloween Town, take a look at the top of the curly hill. There’s a special person we’re dedicating the project to who all of us (well, a lot of us) cherish like a member of our family.
