Strawberry Jelly for only 500np? I must buy it before someone else does!

Sound Familiar? Maybe not for strawberry jelly, which I thought was so good, but perhaps for another inexpensive Neopian item that, as a newbie, you paid too much for. When I first started playing Neopets I bought many foolish items from the top shops in Neopia for way more than they are worth. While Ive still kept a few of the things, like the ball of blue yarn (800np), Ive certainly learned my lesson as to how to make the most of the Shop Wizard, Auction House, and the Mystery Island Trading Post. Once I became familiar with Neopets I also discovered the greatness that is PPT. This website has taught me everything I know about Neopets and that is why I am now writing a guide for PPT and its other visitors about how to overcome the inexperienced newbie experience. So to all newbies:

Bag of neopointsSo you’re wondering, how can I be serious? Well how do you think the neorich got neorich? It’s really quite simple. This guide will teach you how to make at least 1 million NP / month, 2 or more if you put the time in.

The first thing you need to make neopoints is… neopoints!

In addition to all the free dailies, there’s a handful of games I keep on my favorite list. I hardly play them now, but when I started up they came in handy to raise revenue.

All of these games earn quick and big NP. For more information on strategy for these games, look at the relevant guides under the game section of PPT.

I am recommending going against the convention of taking out the mines in the game. In fact keep 9 mines in the map as often as you can. Destroying the mines is risky and time consuming. There is no guarantee the next time you pick up a dubloon another mine wont pop up right next to you. My strategy is this.

Keep the 9 mines in a centre mass. The assumption here is you should be quite a good player. Dive in between two mines and you would bring them closer. If there are 3 mines, stay in the centre and let them move towards you and then move away. This way you would have 3 mines quite close to each other.

Dubloon Disaster Tips

Some general tips
When you play Dubloon Disaster, you can type scallywags to create a whirlpool and get rid off the nasty mines but the best way to do this without risking getting caught is:

1. When you start the game before you collect the first dubloon type in scallywag (no s ).
2. When you feel that you need some more space and the mines are to difficult to avoid just press s to complete the code. – tinkerbell

The enemy enemy concept
Every time there are 2 mines on the board, try to get them to blow each other up by running them into each other. Hope this helps a few people. – Galataiend

Here are some easy ways to get a good score on Dubloon Disaster!

1. Set a goal for yourself. Dont send in your score unless you get over your goal. My goal is 170 points, because above that and you get 1000nps.

2. After you get at least of the way to your goal, go to an area where there are no mines (the small black and red things) and type in SCALLYWAGS. It creates a whirlpool. If you move right after you create the whirlpool, it will close, so wait for a split second, then move. Be careful or you might get sucked into the whirl pool!
