GAMES ROOM - Hi everyone, I'm back with more tips and strategies to getting
trophies. I'm still going to be writing about the competitions this week.
This trophy is for your pet. If you like to write, you should go for this trophy.
The object of the spotlight is to give special attention to a special pet. You
have to write about why your pet(s) should win the spotlight. You can write
a story, a poem, or anything. You can even send your own pictures. Make sure
you send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This trophy is exactly the same as the pet spotlight, but the award goes on
your user lookup. The mailing address for this is email@example.com.
Did you know every pet gets their own webpage? You can view and edit your pet's
webpage by going here. http://www.neopets.com/edithomepage.phtml. If you know
how to build a webpage, this competition is for you. If you don't know how to
build a webpage, you can learn some HTML here. http://www.neopets.com/help/html1.phtml.
If you have spent a long time making your page nice, you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
to see if your page is worthy to win the site spotlight. Make sure your site
still has to do with Neopets though. The sites are judged by the Neopets staff.
Do you like to tell stories? Well, then this competition is for you. Each week,
there is a new storytelling competition. You are given a short paragraph and
you have to write the next part of the story. If your portion of the story is
picked, you will get a trophy. You can get to the contest by going here. http://www.neopets.com/art/storytell.phtml
Are you good at drawing/making pictures? Even if you aren't good, you can still
enter this contest with a fair chance of winning. You are allowed to take a
picture and modify it, but simply copying a picture is not allowed. Simply submit
a picture you have made and it will be put up automatically. The contests are
held every week and start Mondays at 4:00 NST. There are trophies for every
species. If you are in the top three of your species, you will win a trophy
for your pet. Getting votes can be tough. Some people like to advertise in their
shops, on their user lookups and they tell their friends. Quite a few people
'trade' votes on the chat boards. Again, if you are under 13, this is not a
possibility for you. A good way to get votes is to get a few votes right when
the contest starts. You might appear on the top for a short while and people
like to vote for the pets that are leading. If you are very high on the high
score tables, winning the beauty contest can be very simple, almost unstoppable.
There are some good cash prizes to be won. You can enter a picture here. http://www.neopets.com/beauty/upload.phtml
Well, this kind of speaks for itself. Write a long poem or a series of poems
and submit them to email@example.com. If the Neopets staff like the poem, you
can win a trophy. Make sure the poems are about Neopets though!
This is kind of like the beauty contest but your work has to be 100% original.
That means you can't take a picture and change it. This too is judged by the
Neopets staff. Submit your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neopian Times Trophy
If you submit an article to The Neopian Times, you can get a trophy if it's
picked. Try to be original and write about something Neopets related. You can
write short stories, a series, comics, and game guides. Send your entries to
It costs quite a bit of NPs to get this trophy. The object is simple; you get
1 point for every book your pet has read. The pets that have read the most books
get an award. This competition is a little unfair because of which books your
pet can read. There is a relation between the title of the books your pet won't
read and the length of your pet's name. If your pet's name is of length m then
it will reject books of length 2(m+1) and 2(m+1)+1. Also, if the title of the
book is of length n, then your pet will not read books of length (n/2)-1. Note:
n/2 is rounded up if it results in a half. You can visit the Book Award here.
Again, it costs quite a bit of NPs to get this trophy. The object is similar
to the book award. You get 1 point for every 'gourmet' food your pet eats. A
gourmet food has a rarity of 90 - 100. You can check the rarity of an item in
your inventory by clicking on it. You can also check the rarities of other items
by putting their names in the yellow search bar located on the bottom left of
the side bar. This competition is also tough because you have to find the names
of the gourmet foods or get a list. Like reading books, your pet's name determines
the food that your pet will and will not eat. Your pet will not eat foods that
have the same number, or twice the number, of characters as their name. You
can visit the Gourmet club here. http://www.neopets.com/gourmet_club.phtml
That's all for the competitions. Next time: Deckswabber and Grundo Snowthrow.
