Games Master Challenge 2009

Jump to: navigation, search
2009's Games Master Challenge was themed around Neopets 10th anniversary.

The fourth annual Games Master Challenge began on November 24, 2009 and ended on December 1, 2010. As with previous events, Aristotle A. Avinroo challenged users to complete five Games Room related tasks each day. Completing challenges rewarded users with items, many of which were exclusive to this event. At the end of the event, users were given trophies based on how many challenges they completed.

This was the first Games Master Challenge to include a Neocash activity.

Challenges[edit]

Each day's challenges this year were themed around specific periods of the site's history.
