Grids around the OpenSim metaverse are gearing up to celebrate Halloween, and some have already started the festivities.
Tag Grid holds Halloween build contest
The Halloween Build contest on the Tag Grid started on Wednesday, October 7, and will run until Friday, October 31.
To participate, a builder chooses a ten-by-ten square piece of land of 500 prims on the Tag Events region to build on anything they wish as long as it is an unlinked, Halloween-themed prim build, grid owner Constanza Amsterdam told Hypergrid Business.
Winners will be announced on Monday, November 5. The winner will carry home $10,000 X’s, the grid’s local currency, first runners up $5,000 X’s and second runners up $2.500 X’s.
“Also, we have two Halloween regions open for the public, we will be holding the yearly Broom Race and several clubs will be having events and, of course, Buzzy Bingo will be holding a special Halloween bingo evening,” she said.
