Bon's guide to Really Lazy Food Club

Ok, the idea of Food Club is that there are a bunch of pirates and they eat a bunch of food that they may or may not be allergic to, and you're betting on something to do with this.

But you don't need to know any of that to play Lazy Food Club. You can ignore everything but what you'll find on the "Place A Bet" page:

http://www.neopets.com/pirates/foodclub.phtml?type=bet

You'll see there are five "arenas" each with four pirates. This changes daily. The idea is that you'll bet on the pirates that are most likely to win. The best odds are 2:1, and the worst are 13:1. Playing Lazy Food Club, you'll only be betting on the 2:1's.

So check the pirates in Shipwreck and look at their odds. Is there someone at 2:1? Great! Now comes the tricky part... what is the *next best* odds? If it's too close to 2:1, then I don't bet. I only bet if the next best is 5:1 or worse, because that seems a pretty safe bet. You can choose to be more or less picky on this point, it's a matter of how much risk you want to take. It's still Lazy Food Club. :)

So if Shipwreck has a good bet, click the checkbox to the left, and repeat the process through all 5 arenas. Some days there are no "safe" bets. Other days, you'll find yourself with 3 or 4 boxes checked. Woohoo, those are happy days!!

Just above where you place your bets, it will tell you how much you are allowed to bet. I always bet the max amount. The more you bet, the more you win! And you're making pretty safe bets. I lose sometimes, but over time, I am WAY ahead:

If there's only one good bet, then you just put in your bet amount, and click to place your bet. That couldn't be simpler.

But what if there are two or more good bets? Let's get an example:

Shipwreck has 12:1, 13:1, 9:1, 2:1
Lagoon has 7:1, 13:1, 2:1, 9:1
Harpoon has 2:1, 8:1, 13:1, 7:1
and the rest are not so good, so you ignore them. ;)

First, you'll check the boxes next to all three of Shipwreck, Lagoon, and Harpoon. You'll choose the 2:1's for all three of them, put in your bet amount, and place your bet. You're basically betting that ALL THREE of these guys will win.

Now go to the Place a Bet page again. This time, bet on only Shipwreck and Lagoon. Then bet on Shipwreck and Harpoon. And then Lagoon and Harpoon.

Finally, bet on Shipwreck alone. Then only Lagoon. And only Harpoon.

What you've done is taken those three "safe" odds, and bet on all possible combinations of them. This is how you can make tons of money from FC!!

One final note about making bets... you can only make a maximum of 10 bets per round. That won't be an issue unless there are 4 or 5 good arenas, in which case you won't be able to bet on all possible combinations. If that happens, just make any 10 bets that make you happy.


All right, so at 2pm NST, the pirates start eating, and about 20 minutes later (they eat fast!), the results are posted. At this point, you can collect your winnings. Yes, you have to actually go there and collect them!! they aren't given to you automatically. And if you leave winnings uncollected for more than a week, they disappear... so remember to check!

Hope this is helpful. :)
