Halloween puppets is a collection that can be combined in the game.
Each Hidden Object Picture and Puzzle game in the Secret Society - Hidden Mystery has its own set of reward items that players can win, in addition to earning Experience points and coins. Many of these items form parts of collections that players can combine in order to win rewards.
This collection is not currently associated with an Artefact in the game, but does give useful rewards every time it is combined. When this collection was first introduced to the game, as part of the Halloween 2014 Update's Timed Challenges (October 2014), it was one of 5 collections needed to create the Witch's Talisman artefact. The collections required to combine this artefact were later changed by the Halloween 2015 Update (October 2015).
See the List of Collections page for a list of all collections currently available in the game and the rewards for combining them.
The Halloween puppets CollectionEdit
Halloween puppets is collection number 259 in the collections section of the game when sorting is disabled. This collection was introduced to the game in the 1.11 version of the game - The Halloween 2014 Update (October 2014).
This collection was used as part of the Halloween 2014 update's Halloween Timed Challenges. Players needed to complete 30 special Quests before the timer ran out in order to unlock a special Halloween Chest, and receive its rewards. 6 of those 30 Quests involved finding all the items from and then combining the Halloween puppets collection.
When the Halloween puppets collection was first introduced, Pumpkin lantern Special Items were given as rewards for combining the collection. Pumpkin lantern Special Items were required, in addition to Energy points, for each play of the Forest House picture as this picture was also used as part of the Halloween 2014 Update's timed challenges. The 2014 Christmas Update (December 2014) removed Pumpkin lanterns as a requirement to play Forest House and also changed the rewards for combining any collections that previously rewarded them.
Each collection in the game consists of 5 different collection items.
|Item 1||Item 2||Item 3||Item 4||Item 5||Combining Elements Required||Item Created by Combining||Reward for Combining|
|"Skeleton" puppet||"Scarecrow" puppet||"Vampire" puppet||"Werewolf" puppet||"Ghost" puppet||"Witch" puppet||Low weight|
Once you have collected at least one of each item for this collection, along with the required number of combining elements, the COMBINE button on the right side of the collection will turn green. You will be able to combine the collection and receive your rewards. If the COMBINE button is brown, then you are either missing one or more of the collection items, or you do not have enough of one or more of the required combining elements.
Halloween puppets is a 'Quest Only' collection. This means that the collection items CANNOT be won through normal play of certain Pictures or Puzzle games. The items only become available to win in specific locations when the Quest for the item is active. Once the Quest for the item is complete, it will no longer be possible to win the item in that (or any) location.
Important: The Quests for the items in the Halloween puppets collection were part of the Halloween 2014 Update's timed challenges. These quests are no longer available in the game since that event is now over. This means that new players will not receive Quests to gather the 5 items from this collection or a Quest to combine this collection.
However, there are several other ways to obtain the collection items needed to combine the Halloween puppets collection:

Collection items with a green plus sign can be added to your wish list to indicate to your friends that you need the item. This is done by clicking on the green plus sign next to the item in the Collections window, at which point it will turn into a red x and will also show up on your wish list. You can also gift these collection items to your friends, either directly from their wish list or through the 'Send a collection item' tab in the gifting window for that friend. All collection items gifted to friends will come out of your inventory.
Collection items without a green plus sign cannot be added to your wish list or gifted to friends. It does not matter how many of that item you have in your inventory; if the item does not have a green plus sign next to it, it will not appear in the 'Send a collection item' tab in the gifting window. It is impossible to send or receive items that do not have a green plus sign, however they may be obtained through a drop while visiting a friend's board or by charging an award.
The combining elements required to assemble any collection can be won as a reward for successfully investigating certain pictures and winning certain puzzle games.
The following is a list of the combining elements that are required in order to combine the Halloween puppets collection. For each combining element, it shows how many are required each time you combine a collection and where the combining element can be found in the game.

|Mermaid scale||6||Witch's Hut|
|Basilisk fang||6||Witch's Hut|
