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 purchaseable gifts, Halloween costumes, and a scavenger hunt for minifigures called "BLOXikins."
The idea of a Halloween game was first introduced during the 2013 Virtual BLOXcon. The game takes place in the fictional town of Bloxburg. The map had an area of 20,000 by 20,000 studs, making it the largest Roblox game to date. The map was dotted with multiple swamps, forests, and farms.
The point of the game was to defeat Bloxhilda, a wicked witch whose goal was to conquer and rule the city of Bloxburg. Players could collect costumes and be assisted by administrators 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.
On October 14, ROBLOX announced a virtual Halloween Costume contest. It was a contest judging a player's virtual Halloween style, and the winners were awarded prizes. The winners (Top Three), received a free virtual item. Also, in the Halloween Event, if any ROBLOXian wears one of the winning packages, they received a helpful item in game. More information here .

The gifts were only on sale for a certain amount of time before they are taken off sale. Each gift was be opened a few days after it was taken off sale.
