This Wednesday, October 3rd, The Casino gets a new game, lots of Halloween goodies from Heavy Water, Lockwood and Hellfire Games hit just in time to help you celebrate the holiday, Granzella brings even more to the beach, and more. Here’s what you can enjoy this week:

 

1. Digital Leisure – The Casino’s New Craps Game + New Rewards
 

NEW GAME ALERT!

The Casino has its very first dice game! Craps, one of the most exhilarating games of chance, is now available right next to the blackjack tables. Shoot out a come roll and hope you get lucky. Craps also comes with its own rewards and leaderboard. Give it a shot, and roll the dice!

Sincerely,
The Management

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget! Today is Canadian Thanksgiving. Visitors of The Casino will all get a very special, uniquely Canadian reward in honor of the holiday, but you have to get in there today! (Read: it will be gone tomorrow!)

 

2. Heavy Water – Halloween Goodies
 

Everyone from Heavy Water wishes the Home community an early “Happy Halloween!” There’s everything from apparel to furniture, and even an enchanting companion! Are you going for the festive and natural setting? Try the Pumpkin Patch, Spooky Stump, Wrought Iron Fence and Animated Harvest Moon Window. Want to have a sinister dungeon feel? Try the Iron Maiden, Bed of Nails or the Torture Rack. How about a more whimsical Halloween experience? Try the Animated Plastic Pumpkin hand item with candy, the Animated Jack-o-lantern Bra or the Animated Spider Web Tattoo. Or just go straight Zombie with Gunshot, Brokejaw and the Boarded Up Window!

Don’t forget that all owners of the Halloween Pets (Ghostling, Vampire Batling and Flaming Skull) will be pleasantly surprised as they are being updated to lowering the item’s furniture slot usage to 6! And anyone who doesn’t own it can now get the updated Pets from the Heavy Water store!

3. Hell Fire Games – SpeedWings + Halloween Home Tycoon Building Pack
 
 
 
 
 

Boost your avatar’s speed up to 150% with the new SpeedWings locomotion series from Hellfire Games! Blaze through your favorite spaces and outrun your friends in style with the Radiant Angel Wings, Dazzling Butterfly Wings, Flaming Phoenix Wings, and the multicolored Dragon Wings, available in Blue, Red, Green, and Gold varieties.

Each set of SpeedWings features custom floating and flying animations, and does NOT require any clothing slots, so you can wear them with anything — even full-body outfits! Get yours today and cover more ground, without your feet ever touching the ground.

“Bring Halloween Home” with the new Halloween Building Pack this week in Home Tycoon from Hellfire Games! Scare up some citizens with three new residential buildings: Autumn Abodes, Creepy Cottages, and the Haunted House. Each new building comes with Halloween decorations, ghostly sounds, and spooky autumn colors. Be the first mayor on your block to build them all!

4. Lockwood – Halloween Update

The Lockwood Halloween Extravaganza continues this week with a new range of Halloween costumes from Fool Throttle. Creepy costumes have been done to death, so Fool Throttle’s created outfits with a twist around the theme of a hot Halloween Beach Party. Choose your favourite Fool Throttle character or create your own by mixing and matching.

Damon Allburn is a devilishly handsome singer who sold his soul in exchange for fame. Invisible Keith used to just be Keith, a happy-go-lucky surfer, until he got sucked into a mysterious whirlpool and when it spat him back onto the beach, things had changed! Felicia is a fashion-conscious feline who’s generally pretty laid back and enjoys reclining in the sunlight. Ella Vam Pire isn’t interested in pallid complexions and draughty crypts like the rest of her family, so she’s headed to the beach to work on her tan instead. Last, but not least, there’s Skelly Kelly. Kelly isn’t undead and doesn’t have supernatural powers, she’s just a friendly, fun-loving girl who enjoys hanging out at the beach with her unusual friends, showing off her macabre fashion sense.

Some frightening favorites return to the Gift Machine, so if you missed out on Skinny Vinny or Coffin Colin last year, here’s another chance to add them to your Wishlists.

 

 

 

 

5. Granzella – Weekly Update

The new lamé style Frilly bikini, Neck strap bikini, and Sexy chain one-piece from Granzella are available beginning Wednesday, exclusively in the Glittering Sands Secluded Retreat personal space’s store in seven color variations.

So put on a shiny new lamé swimsuit and hit the beach today!

For men, there’s the colorful Hawaiian Shirt and the light and airy Straw Hat, available in three color variations.

As I said on the blog, Home Tycoon disappointed me. But Craps is good; pretty sure every mainstay casino game is now accounted for.

Oogy boogy!

 
Halloween is fun! I'm really looking forward to seeing what kind of Halloween parties/events everyone makes. Conrad_Max created an awesome psycho ward themed layout in his Blueprint: Home space.

Wow! Lots of new stuff. Granzella will probably get my money again this week. And Digital Leisure just keeps new games coming for their Casino. I think we are going to be seeing some new stuff from Heavy Water this month as well.

 

Hopefully at least one of ths spaces will be decorated with a Halloween theme as we get closer to the holiday.

The highlight for me is that Heavy Water updated the Halloween pet active items to where they take up way less furniture slots.  I bought all 3 when they first came out and this is FANTASTIC news!  Not to mention the new Halloween active items take up only TWO furniture slots.  Way to go, Heavy Water!  Smiley Happy

I certainly don't mind a boring update.  With all of the great stuff that has come out since September my wallet could certainly use the time to replenish lol.  Seriously though!
