Octerror Fest 2016 was the sixth Octerror Fest for The SpongeBob Community, which started October 14, 2016 and ended October 31, 2016. Unlike last year's, every game during the event counted for a teams tournament between the Band Geeks, Drasticals, and independent users, where everyone could play in it, similar to The Super Spongy Square Games. In the end, the Drasticals won the event. Loyal Customers received a sneak peek of it on September 30, 2016, and it was publicly announced October 6, 2016.


Below was the final scoreboard on October 31, 2016.

Place Team Score
1st Drasticals 21
2nd Band Geeks 14
3rd Independent 3


Just like last year, during the event, the group names changed to SpongeBob Halloween related names. Managers, Cashiers and Customers became orange, purple and light blue instead of red, blue and teal.

Managers --> Slashers

Cashiers --> Floating Shopping Lists

Retired Employees --> Haunted Mattresses

Band Geeks --> Band Freaks

Drasticals --> Ghasticals

Loyal Customers --> Dutchman's Crew

Customers --> Ghosts

Nematodes --> Zombies

They also received exclusive badge redesigns to fit the names (except for Band Geeks and Drasticals), which can be found in the gallery below.

Like last year, SpongeCraft also received a Halloween makeover using a new design pack installed by MDPP. It turned everything on the server into a spooky/Halloween theme.


SpongeBob Jeopardy!

Three games this month for Jeopardy counted on the scoreboard. The first one, "On the Lam", occurred on October 15th, 2016, was not Halloween related, but still counted. spongeboblover won it for the Band Geeks. The second one, "Dutchman's Duel", occurred on October 22nd, 2016, which was The Flying Dutchman themed. Cream won for it the Drasticals. The third and last one, "The Unknown", occurred on October 29th, 2016, which was The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror themed, which Trophy won for the Band Geeks.

SpongeBob Wheel of Fortune

Three games this month for Wheel of Fortune counted on the scoreboard. The first one, "Octerror Wheel", occurred on October 14th, 2016, which DarknessDG won for the Independents. The second one, "Hayloween", occurred on October 21st, 2016, which Hayden won for the Drasticals. The third one, "Trick or Win", occured on October 28th, 2016, which Hayden won for the Drasticals.

Dunces & Dragons

Three games this month for Dunces & Dragons counted on the scoreboard. The first one, "Ghost Town", occurred on October 16th, 2016, which Hayden won for the Drasticals. The second one, "The Dutchman's Ship", occurred on October 23rd, 2016, which DarknessDG won for the Independents. The third and last one, "Trick or Treat!", occurred on October 30th, 2016, which Trophy won for the Band Geeks.

Hooky 2: The Fisherman Returns

A Whodunit/And Then There Were None survival game, which was a sequel to "Hooky" from Octerror Fest 2015. 12 users signed up, and one of them was a killer in disguise, The Fisherman. Users had to complete challenges and puzzles to figure out who The Fisherman was, as users were killed off each night. There were some new changes compared to the first Hooky. Unlike last year, the top two people to finish the challenge were immune from being killed, instead of just one (up until Challenge 7). There was also a power-up store to buy some advantages. Whoever was first to complete the challenges would gain a point for their side on the scoreboard. The winner was Cream as Sandy Cheeks, who was The Fisherman, and finished first for the final challenge. Cream received 5,000 doubloons, exclusive Fisherman Coat and Hat for iFish, and The Fisherman badge for winning.
