Carnival of Terror by sirlimpalot

——-
Carnival of Terror is an OKAY game, I wouldn’t really recommend it. It’s a fairly good way to get neopoints though. This game doesn’t take too much skill…say maybe 4 rounds to get good?

A LITTLE NOTE FROM RAY: UHH…I WROTE AN ARTICLE FOR EVIL FUZZLES FROM BEYOND THE STARS AND THIS GAME IS VERY SIMILAR TO THAT ONE, EXCEPT THIS IS JUST REALLY EASY. CHECK OUT MY GUIDE, OKAY?
——-

Preparations:

Okay…
Go to the game page…( http://www.neopets.com/games/carnival.phtml )
It’s easiest if you have the size on large, but you don’t have to if you dont want to.
You might want to read the story, get used to it, but the story isn’t as important, the Points Structure is.

Chute Guide by Shoyru_Lover

Chute, the Tetris like game is a classic! remolded Neopets version of course! Like Tetris, the aim is to create horizontal lines and at the same time, accumulate points. The more risk you take, the higher the point you can accumulate. For instance, if you waited for a four line grab instead of immediately taking the one line grab, you would get more points. However, there is a risk that you will nearly create the four line but also run out of space, thus receiving no points and losing the game.

There is a bonus however, if you do successfully clear four lines, you receive an extra kacheek, who when called upon, (pressing K) will unleash a fury of juggernaut power to help you clear the lines! (Great when you nearly run out of space).

The All Around 9 Step Guide to Being a Cheap Yet Successful Neopian by Paul Nemitz

Yeah, I too have decided to make a newbie guide, and the name is altairguardian on neopets, but don’t let the newbie status confuse you, I had some other accounts, all covered in rust BEFORE books disappeared.

Getting started: 500 np isn’t much, but it IS better than nothing, and the newbie pack can be useful for a FEW days, there are number of cans and cant’s about this

1. Basic supplies: Food, books, crude weapons, and toys are useful most of the time, and its worth it to make your pet smarter, happier, or stronger.

2. Bank account: This is a MUST, and I suggest when you have the amount of total money needed to improve your account status, do it! normally, bank money is dead money for awhile, but if your not gonna do anything else with it, might as well make interest.

I Was a Scammer by Anonymous

PART ONE: HOW IT BEGAN

I had been playing on neopets for some months, and had good pets (not great, though) and I was doing ok in NP. I fed them and cared for them. All the normal stuff. One day at school, the same friend who referred me to neopets told me about his cousin, who had a way to get peoples’ accounts using fake login pages. At that moment, I wondered. Could I pull something off like that? Of course not. I didn’t even know what HTML was at the time, much less about the creation of the scam…

School was out. I had created other accounts in the past months, one of which that I was very proud of. I had only one pet, seeing as how I had trouble with my other pets, not enough to keep on feeding them and training them. I had created a guild as well. There weren’t many members, yet I was happy. Then…one of those days, I was frozen. Why? For repeating what someone else had said. Of course, it was stupid, yet a simple warning would have been fair. I was annoyed by it for a while. And during that while, I remembered about the scam. Could I pull something off like that? Maybe… I had learned basic HTML thanks to neopets, and I learned how the scam worked thanks to another site that (foolishly) went into detail how the scam worked. And that’s when I began scamming.

Interviews

Up Close and Personal With Donna Williams by Alex

Some of you may be aware of the fact that the two creators of Neopets, Adam and Donna, occasionally visit the Pink Poogle Toy forums. I, Alex, was lucky enough to score an interview with one of the co-creators, Donna. Read on to find about office pranks, the real origins of Neopets, and memorable encounters with fans and more!

What is it like to work for such a huge site?

Heh, well, it’s certainly a lot different than when we started. There is a lot more formality getting things done but on a whole it’s good.

What are your current responsibilities on Neopets?
