2013 Gifts

Boom! Giftsplosion 2013 Is Here

Giftsplosion 2013[Update: the 12th gift is out. See below!]

Did you just feel that? It’s December, so it could have only been one thing: a Giftsplosion!

In the spirit of the holiday season, we’re releasing 12 mystery gift boxes over the course of 12 days – December 1st through the 12th. One gift will appear each day, and you can earn it by completing the cryptic challenge associated with it. That could be creating an outfit, achieving a badge in a particular game, making a forum post, or something else entirely. We’re not going to tell you exactly how to earn any of the gifts because that would make us fun-hating Grinches; just know that each challenge will be unique and of a varied difficulty level, and require that you complete a specific action on ROBLOX.

You’ll need to work quickly. In most cases, you only have one to three days to qualify to earn a gift. Please note that you will not automatically receive a gift once you qualify. It will be awarded to everyone who qualifies in one fell swoop after the qualification period ends. If you don’t manage to earn a gift, it will go on sale in the catalog for a limited time.

Eventually, each gift you earn will open and reveal a fantastic prize!

2013 Gifts

General information about gifts

  • Gifts are given for meeting specific conditions. For example, in the past we have given gifts to every player who opted into ROBLOX emails or had a certain number of posts in the Scripting Helpers Forum. Sometimes conditions will be obvious. Other times they will be a mystery.
  • If you meet the conditions before the gift is awarded to everyone who qualifies, you get the gift for free.
  • If you don’t, you don’t. Each gift is given out once and only once.
  • Don’t worry, you will get a chance to purchase the gifts you’ve missed before they open.
  • All gifts will eventually open. Players who own a gift box will get the gift that is inside automatically. The name of the gift box changes to let you know it has opened.
  • Once a gift has opened, there is no other way to get the item inside.
  • Some gifts will be easy to get. Others will be awarded to only a select few.

Past giftsplosions

We’ve been running giftsplosions on ROBLOX for the last few years. If you’re new to ROBLOX, check out these blog posts for insight into how the event has worked in the past and examples of a couple challenges from years past:

    Got 11/12, I’m fine with that. I got the Muneris Aureus gift and the rest, but the only one I didn’t get was the Sound As a Bell one.

  3. GTKendro

    Just saying, but Impossibility better have something epic inside. Because I spent a lot of time getting that Bandit badge. Anyone got any ideas for what’s inside the gift? Or Populace? I got 6/12 gifts by the way. :P

    I still wonder what will come out of the Festive Gift of Impossibility… Many say it’ll be a sparkletime fedora. I just hope so haha

    I got 10/13 Gifts, only ones I didn’t get was the Sound As A Bell Gift, the DevEx Gift, and the Bewitching Gift of Santa.

    I bought the Unluckiest Gift when it’s timer was at 2:30. Close call.

    You know what would have been great, if the last gift was given to everyone for Christmas. I was the only one of my friends at school who got gifts.
