I am here today to tell you all about the Neopian Olympic Poking Events, how to poke and how to become a champion, so that you may participate in the NOPEs in Y12, which are going to take place in Shenkuu. It will take great skill, determination, and you will have to miss several meals, but hopefully, when you finish reading this article, you will be a poking champion...

Basic Inner Tubing

It is steering through obstacles such as whirlpools and arrows. It is (to most participants' horror) swimming through swamp water, it is - TUBULAR KIKO RACING! In this game, you have to help a Kiko named Kavi cross the finish line in first place! Sounds easy, doesn't it? But as I've already said in the first paragraph, there are many obstacles to cross.

Into the Sea: Part One
"At first glance, she appears quite normal. Like a regular little Flotsam, happy with her life. She looks as if she has not a care in the world... Poor thing."
