Unflinching Gift of Mad Men

To get this gift you had to have 100k impressions on one of your User adverts. You would have to have had them a little time before people realised this because once everyone found out everyone tried running ads. As you know the more ads that run the less your ad will be shown thus bringing your chances down of getting the gift. The gift was then sold for R$175 for around 8 hours. This gift was fairly hard to get because you had to have a decent amount of money. Happy Hunting!

ROBLOX Torso Glitch

This week there was a ROBLOX torso glitch, for a short period of time if you changed your shirt and did not wear a t-shirt your torso would be completely invisible. This wasn't your average glitch though, because it was also invisible in game. To fix this in game you had to zoom in then zoom out. The glitch was fixed the next day and if you refreshed your character you would get your old body back.

Silver Gift of Surprise

To get this gift you had to have owned the Gold gift of Superuser. If you didn't own that gift you can still buy it for R$10000, I know this is expensive but it probably means there is something incredibly awesome sauce inside! Happy Hunting!

Forest Camo Gift of Veterans

To get this gift you simply had to be a one year veteran or more. However, it was not giving to inactive accounts, it was only awarded to veteran accoutns that had logged on in the past month. It is now on sale for R$2000. Happy Hunting!

Janitorial Gift of Taking Out the Trash

To get this gift you had to be one of the 5000 best reporters on ROBLOX. This gift was quite hard because once it came out you wouldn'y have enough time to get into the top 5000. It is now on sale for R$45. Happy Hunting!

Emblazoned Gift of Lua Mastery

This was awarded to anyone who had 100 posts or more in the scripting helpers forum. This was awarded to around 3000 people and is now on sale for R$600. This gift was moderately hard to get because the clue in the description was nothing to do with how to obtain the gift. Happy Hunting!

Towering Pillar of the Community Gift

This gift was awarded to builders of the top 1000 most-visited ROBLOX places of all time. This ended up being 752 people, since some builders had multiple top-1000 places. This was then sold for R$500 and 2467 copies were bought. This is one the rarer gifts this year, it was quite difficult to get if you were an average ROBLOXian. Happy Hunting!

Glowing Gold Gift of Superuser

This gift was given to all admins and moderators who are working for ROBLOX, it was their special gift to them for working hard day in and day out on the game and keeping its users and community happy. After it was given out it was then sold for R$20000 which is A LOT. 156 were bought before the gift was put off sale. Telamon said he wanted to keep the gift rare and I think they succeeded! Happy Hunting!

Early Morning Gift of Psych

For this gift you had to be up in the morning and had to have sharp eyes to notice that the OBC only gift was infact not OBC only, it was for 1 Tix and so lots of people bought this gift. This was a tad unfair to people in different time zones so ROBLOX put it back on sale for 15 R$ later on in the week. This gift was fairly easy to obtain, it will probably be this years freebie. Happy Hunting!

Retro ROBLOXian Gift of Yesteryore

Clues to how to obtain this gift were giving out on the ROBLXO blog, there were 7 classic places you had to visit in a certain amount of time. All the users who visited the right places were awarded the gift. It was then put on sale for R$150
which ment quite a few were sold. This gift was medium diffuculty because the answers were basically staring you in the face on the forum. Happy Hunting!

Friendly Gift of FaceBox connect.

To get this gift, you simply had to connect to facebook and share one thing. Many people did this and received the gift. It was then put on sale for R$50, which basically ment it was a freebie. The facebox connect is one of the easiest gifts to obtain so far this month. Happy Hunting!

Blinking Gift of Social Media

To get this gift you had to have bought it while it was on sale. But not just any sale, it had a twist, the gift was put on sale several times over a period of 48 hours for 2 minutes at a time for a price between 1-4 Tix. It was quite difficult to buy it at these times so ROBLOX put it on sale for R$300 for the people who didn't get it. It is still on sale now so get it while it lasts! Happy Hunting!

Thanksgiving Turkey Hunt 2010

This year ROBLOX celebrated thanksgiving with a user made Turkey hunt event. ROBLOX would like to thank Kuunan, TengoLa, GollyGreg and eumesmo92 for building this year’s Turkey Hunt map! The idea of this years event was if you were turkey you had to hide from the pilgrim hunters, and if you were a hunter you had to shoot the turkeys. There were many secret places to find and hide in. The hunters were equipped with a blunderbuss rifle which carried two bullets at a time. The event was a success although there was a hiccup halfway though which couldn't be fixed and so the two hats to be won were made free for a couple of days.

Thanksgiving 2010

This year ROBLOX is celebrating Thanksgiving with a bang! A new thanksgiving theme was released a short while ago to get in the spirit, it is avaible to all Users and will be around most probably until the end of November. Buts that's not all, along with this a Tom of new items including hats and Gear have been released, as well as some old favourites being put back on sale.

Halloween 2010 CTF

This year, ROBLOX hosted a capture the flag event celebtrating Halloween. There were three teams: Vampires, Werewolves and Townsfolk who were simply stuck in the middle. The aim for the Vampires was to capture the Werewolves flag and the aim for the Werewolves was to capture the Vampires flag. However, the townsfolk had a completely different objective, they just had to survive the night (around 500 seconds- one round. There were prizes given out to the team that one, you won a badge and hat attatched with it. Later on in the week, ROBLOX released more things to do in the event. There was a treasure hunt within the game and there were badges to be won for killing a certain amount of the other team, the game was a success. There was quite a lot of lag, so not everyone could enjoy the event to the full, but the majority of the community enjoyed biting eachothers necks!

Roblox Halloween 2010

As you all know, Halloween is this month, and so Roblox is brining out Classic Halloween hats, ie: Darkseed, pumpkin head, and Halloween baseball cap. As well as these Roblox will be brining out new spooky hats. No Halloween event has been confirmed yet, but I'm sure Roblox is cooking up something great, maybe a treasure hunt? Maybe a spooky sword fight? Or maybe a halloween paintball map, like last year.
Also coming out this month is the mysterious GhostWalker sword (as Gear) from the famous Sword fight on the heights game made by Telamon. This will be in high demand, and once it is sold out, the prices will skyrocket. So good luck getting that.

Hi, I'm back!

Sorry Roblox News has been in active for almost two months, I have been very busy at the moment. But now I'm back, so there will be lots of updates.

Featrued Game: ★Robloxia Football 2010!★RF10★New Stadium!

Finally a sport place that made it onto the 2nd page of games. Yes this game is hard to play and quite frustrating, but the actual scripting, gameplay and the concept of the place is very good. For example there are different tools for different kicks and when the ball crosses the goal line the score changes and cheering starts. I give it 8/10

NEW Admins on Roblox

We now have 2 new admins who will be improving the roblox website and experience here they are:


Jahrblox is working on the website. Here’s what he has to say about himself…

Right now I’m gathering ideas for cool new features in ROBLOX, and thinking about how to make all the features easy to use. Another part of my job is to make the graphics look cool.

Builderman and Telamon are always full of great ideas! Talking with them always gets me excited about what we’ll work on next. Sometimes I also team up with RobloTim and RobloSam.

I like learning about the latest gadgets and video games, and reading tech blogs like Engadget and Gizmodo. I love the original LucasArts games, like Loom and the first Secret of Monkey Island. I also like playing cards and board games. I went to college at the University of Notre Dame. I studied Mechanical Engineering and Graphic Design.

To ROBLOX Users: You guys have so many cool ideas for games! I always like checking out the latest and coolest new games on ROBLOX.


Timobius is working on the ROBLOX physics engine, the geometry of ROBLOX parts, and the Building Tools. So basically the ROBLOX Studio and game itself.

He works mostly with Madrak, Langoliers and Erik.Cassel.

For hobbies he likes to play the drums and fly RC Airplanes!

NEW Roblox contest : Roblosams Rock concert

In this contest the idea is to build a rock concert worthy of roblosam. Yet again you need a good screen shot to get the votes. My entry is basicly a stage with 2guitarists , a drummer and the main singer me :)
