Quote of the Week

It would be a Chocolate Ball that everyone would remember for years to come.

Chocolate Ball Quiz

The Annual Chocolate Ball is approaching quickly, and worried Neopians have been fretting over whether they will finally receive an elusive invitation to this evening of class, opulence, and of course... chocolate! Kacheeks and Tonus have been dropping into the Chocolate Factory multiple times per day, buying extra chocolate in attempts to make *someone* notice they are deserving of an invite. Boris and Zafaras have been seen rubbing elbows with the topmost...

Snow Roller Guide

The game of Snow Roller came about in an interesting way. One cold day in Terror Mountain, the Snow Beast was trying to lay down for an afternoon nap. Just as he was starting to fall asleep though he was awaken by all the Terror Mountain residents frolicking around making way too much noise.

Omt put his book down and stared at Bawarria with an expression that inclined he was not sure how to respond.

"History of the Swamp Gas Techo Ban" by dr_tomoe
The Chocolate Ball had been running without a hitch for years now under his supervision. The Chia usually had everything settled by now, from the chocolates to be unveiled, the guest list, and most importantly, the entertainment. Dexter always made sure to get the finest symphonies and orchestras to play soft, soothing music for the background of the Chocolate Ball, enough for their high class guests to have a waltz to in between tasting the new delectable chocolates...

Happy Chocolate Day!
