Animal Crossing New Horizons Halloween Character - Jack

We can assume jack will also play a significant role in the autumn update but Who Is Jack? Jack

is the self-proclaimed star or ruler of Halloween which you can probably tell given the fact his head is a giant pumpkin. Typically Jack appears a couple of times throughout the month of October for the Halloween event. Halloween as an event in Animal Crossing games always differs slightly but for the most part Jack hosts a kind of trick-or-treat style game that involves scaring villagers which is super fun and earning candy and lollipops which can then be redeemed for limited time seasonal items.

Win Candy From Outside Villagers

When interacting with these villagers who chase you outside during Halloween events, you can either hand over candy when they catch you or risk being tricked by playing a mini-game. Since all the neighbors are dressed up and look like Jacob, there is only one way to distinguish him from your neighbors: Jacob is the only one who does not run after you! If you speak to Jack and give him a piece of candy, he will give you an item from the pumpkin series for it. If they catch you, you have 2 options in 3 results:

  • You give them a piece of candy - in return they tell you which resident is afraid of mask xy. But sometimes they are no longer exactly sure.

  • You get involved in one trick - The same games are played here as with the residents in their houses. If you win, they give you a piece of candy, if you lose, they play a trick on you (like Jack if he doesn't get anything from you).

  • - Your clothes will be transformed piece by piece into patch clothing (shirt, pants/skirt, shoes, hat, alternatively also a dress - not for sale, but do not appear in the catalog)

  • - Crumbling wall or crumbling floor are stored in the inventory (not for sale, but do not appear in the catalog)

  • - One of your items will be transformed into a box goblin (not for sale!)

  • - You get the pumpkin head (purple, red, yellow, green, orange) that the villagers wear himself (not for sale except for the orange one that you can only get from Jack)

Earn Candies and Lollipops By Scaring In-Home Villagers

You will find some of your villagers in their houses, and it is precisely these that are to be frightened. 

  • If you lost to scare the villager - They would not be scared but laugh at you, because that's what happens if you wear the wrong mask. And then you will have to play a minigame to win candy or get a trick on yourself.

  • If you scared the villager - If you've scared your chosen villager successfully, he'll give you a lollipop in the hope that you will leave his house quickly.

Halloween Minigames You Can Play To Win Candy

  • Charade: The villager asks you a question, sometimes exchanging words with emotions. You have to give the answer to this question and are given options.

  • Rock-paper-scissors - The classic game. Villagers choose randomly.

  • Made-ya-look - Look the same way as a villager using the D-pad and you will win. Again, random.

ACNH Halloween Candy & Lollipops

Candy and lollipop not only will be used to play Jack’s Trick or Treat game but also can be used to redeem Halloween items from Jack.

Where Can I Get Candies and Lollipops In ACNH?

  • 1. Buy Candy from Tom Nook's Store

Throughout October, you can either buy the candies from Tom Nook's Store or you can keep the candies that you get at Easter or Carnival. There are four types of candy, but Tom Nook's only sells orange. 

  • 2. Win Candy By Playing Halloween Minigames With Outside Village

If you refuse to give candy to the outside villager who chased you, you will play the below minigames. If you win, you will earn more candy, while if you lose, items in your inventory or even the clothing items, you're wearing can be replaced with trash items. 

  • 3. Get Lollipops From Scaring Villagers At Their Homes

You can also get candies and lollipops by scaring your neighbors who stayed at home. But one condition for this is that you have a suitable look! Outfit and headgear must match! (For example witch cloak and witch hat)
