Quote of the Week


The words we speak to others often contain counsel we are trying to give ourselves.


Chocolate Ball!



A buzz of excitement is in the air. Hordes of Neopians are walking toward the one, the only, Annual Chocolate Ball. Most are turned away at the door, for they have no invitation (granted only to the best of Neopia) in their paws, hands, or hooves. This reporter has managed to grab an invite from an innocent passerby (it was all in the name of journalism!), and is now standing inside the Chocolate factory...

Mouseless Gaming



The first thing to know is that lacking a mouse (or a reliable one) is not the end of the world. Far from it. There are plenty of games that don't require a broad range of motion or dexterity with your cursor! A lot of the older games, for example, are great ways to earn that precious NP.

"I Have Hope" by shadow_sabre_
"Mom left a huge pile of pancakes on the kitchen table! Jake's stuffing himself silly, of course, but she left a note on the table telling us to help ourselves! This is great!” I was confused. Our owner had left us a note? Usually she sat at the table every morning with us, and moderated how much food we took...

"Adventures of Hungry Skeith: Hunt for the Candychan" by twocent
Cakes and ice creams sufficed just fine at the factory, but they lack that pepperminty goodness that I so crave. And the Candychan will fulfill all my minty desires, beyond all my wildest dreams. At least that is what Florg said, and he spends all day eating petpets, so he would know...

The object of the game is to help Wallace the Wocky catch as many of the falling items from the tree as possible using your mouse to control him. You must be careful, though; if you move too quickly it can be game over for you.
