Hello, itís me again, the guy who wrote "The
Art of Haggling", and Iím here again to tell you about an incredible
game that will have you raking in loads of NP in no time. This game is by far
the best game in all of Neopia for getting NP. This wonderful game is called
Deckball is a one-on-one game very similar to soccer, you kick a ball around
trying to knock it into the opponentís goal. The great thing about Deckball
is the easy to get prizes that will get you tons of NP and a few Dubloons (not
to mention a few hundred NP for winning, too). Score just 5 or 6 points and
you win a Dubloon. Score 7-9 for a two Dubloon coin. And score 10 through the
teens for a five Dubloon coin. Iím not sure but if you score even higher you
could get even better Dubloons.
Letís review these Dubloon values:
5-6 points = one Dubloon = 1,000+ NP
7-9 points = two Dubloons = about 3000 NP
10-? = five Dubloons = 5000+ NP
So as you can see, weíre talking big money from just scoring some easy points.
Now to the important part; how to score those points.
First of all, always play on the captain mode. The other modes donít give prizes
or NP so donít even bother unless you are practicing or something. When the
game starts, you are the Pawkeet (the green bird) your opponent is the Mirgle
(the monkey). When the ball first come out, go for it, chase that ball all over
trying to score a goal for the first 3 points. Then, you want to start getting
more defensive. Try to stay on your half of the board mostly guarding your goal
and taking occasional shots. But always remember the most important thing: THE
MIRGLE MAKES MISTAKES!
He makes mistakes and he makes them often. Probably more than half of your
points will be from him hitting it into his own goal. So while you are staying
near the goal. He will be running around all crazy and scoring an occasional
goal on himself. But then when you are at 7-9 points, stick right next your
goal. Always guard the goal. If you leave the goal, it is wide open and you
definitely donít want to lose all those points. So, when you finally do die
with 7+ points or so, choose to send score. Youíll receive your Dubloon(s) in
your inventory immediately, which you can sell for a few thousand, or you can
spend 'em, save 'em, do whatever you want with them. But sadly, as in many games
you can only get 3 prizes per day. But right now for me, Iím winning 3 five
Dubloon coins a day which equals about 15,000 a day from just one game.
-A handy trick Iíve learned, try to get the ball into the bottom right corner.
The Mirgle will hit it against the wall a bunch of times, then itíll go past
him and 50% of the time, heíll spin around and knock it right into his own goal.
-Practice, practice, practice. Donít expect to be making 15k a day when you
first start. Try practicing on the Ďfirst mateí mode for a bit until you are
