How to find Jack the Halloween Czar in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
You can find Jack, the eponymous Halloween Czar, wandering near Residential Services on your island in New Horizons. He will visit your island on Halloween night between 5pm and midnight.
When you find it, stop and have a chat. He will want you to become his henchman and collect Lollipops from the other villagers, which you can give to him in exchange for special Halloween rewards.
Jack will teach you Haunt’s reaction and, in exchange for a piece of Candy, he will give you the item of clothing, Jack’s Face.
How to find lollipops in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
To find the Lollipops that Jack is looking for during the Halloween event in New Horizons, you must give Candy to the villagers who are outside your island to ask for sweets.
We found that it took three to four attempts with different villagers to obtain each of the lollipops, although depending on your luck, you may receive one sooner.
Once you’ve been given a lollipop, go back to Jack and exchange it for a reward.
Jack’s Halloween bounty list in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
To earn all of Jack’s Halloween rewards in New Horizons, you must give him four Lollipops.
For the first Lollipop he will give you a spooky carriage and then for the second he will give you the DIY recipe for this piece of furniture.
After giving her a third Lollipop, you will receive the DIY recipe for Spooky Wand.
The fourth and final Lollipop will result in him giving you the item of clothing, Jack’s robe.
You can keep giving Jack any lollipop you find after this and in return he will give you multiple copies of Jack’s Robe and pumpkins.
Candy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
If you want to partake in the Halloween celebrations in New Horizons, then you’ll want to make sure you have a good supply of candy beforehand. We recommend having about 20 to 25 pieces of candy, so you can properly enjoy the spooky antics.
You can buy a piece of candy every day at Nook’s Cranny for 120 Bells every day in October, including Halloween.
However, if you’re running low, it’s time to do a trick or treat yourself.
Several of your villagers will hang out at their homes, so go visit them. Once there, they will give you a piece of caramel and after about ten minutes they will be ready to give you some more.
However, there is a way to collect unlimited sweets.
All you have to do is use Jack’s Face and Jack’s Robe to trick your villagers into thinking that you are the same Halloween Czar. They will realize that it is you, but that will not stop them from giving you Candy every time you talk to them.
This works on both the villagers inside and outside their homes and is a great way to stock up on candy for the upcoming Halloween year.
Trick or treat and rewards in Animal Crossing; New Horizons explained
Throughout the Halloween event in New Horizons, several of your villagers will be out trick-or-treating.
When one of these villagers sees you, they will run to get your attention. You don’t have to talk to them if you don’t want to, but if you don’t, you won’t be able to participate in their trick or treating.
Talking to the villager will allow you to choose between trick or treating.
Choosing the cheat option will cause the villager to change his eye color, body paint, and place a unique piece of face paint on his body.
The face paint you are given will be randomly selected from a number of options and can be removed by opening the clothing option in your inventory as if it were a normal item of clothing.
You can change your eye color and body paint again by using a dresser or mirror to open the character customization screen. Fortunately, the villager will give you a Wooden Table Mirror the first time you choose ‘Trick’, so you don’t have to go back home to change your character.
However, the ‘Deal’ option will allow you to exchange a candy for a reward. This includes multi-colored pumpkins, certain Spooky items, and any DIY Spooky furniture recipes that may be missing from your collection.
Giving a villager a piece of candy is also the only way to receive the spooky rug, spooky floor, and spooky wall, so if you want to complete the spooky furniture set, be sure to select ‘Treat’!
The first villager you give a gift to will also teach you the scare reaction.
All you have to do to reset the cheat and treat to the villagers is enter and exit any of the buildings on your island.
