Hiya, Silver Wolf here, with more updates and releases! Information about Mystery of the Map, March Madness, Realms, and more will all be included in this gigantic post! As usual, everything will be from oldest to newest, so if you’ve gotten all the old things, just scroll down a bit.
Mystery of the Map Book Released
On March 1st, Mystery of the Map was finally made available to order! The Creators even made three videos consisting of some of the pages (a clever way to advertise 😉 ):
You also may want to check out some of the events on the MotM page. It looks like if you live in New York or Texas of the USA, you might get a chance to get your book signed (one of the signings is today, actually)! Ah, only if small states were as lucky.
March Madness Votes
Do you remember when all of the sponsored islands were made for Members only (and the reactions to it)? …Well, if you’re one of the people that thought it was an outrage, this is your chance! Until March 31, every common room will have a scroll where you can vote for which island you think should be available for everyone. In fact, you get one vote for each common room you go to! Basically, that means you’ll have upwards of 40 votes you can get. If you need a refresher of the islands that are only for Members, here you go:
Based off of the results on March 16, Red Dragon Island (woo!) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island are really close; in fact, on that day, there was only one vote separating them! So, start voting!
Ready for spring (or fall?) shopping? Poptropica thinks so! In the Store, you can get some very springy items, like the Flower Power and Sneezing Powder.
The Flower Power, available for everyone, has two options: you can either customize the costume to look like a flower, or you can plant flowers throughout Poptropica.
The Sneezing Power, which only Members can get, allows you to start a chain of sneezing, where you sneeze, any Poptropican in front of you sneezes, any Poptropica in front of them sneezes, etc. I think most of us can agree that this is one of the less fun things about spring…Although, in Poptropica, it is fun to see other Poptropicans sneeze.
Return of Realms
Since February 16, Poptropica Realms hasn’t been available for anyone to access due to bugs in the system. That means it’s been a little over a month since it’s been gone. Luckily, the Creators have yet again defeated the forces of evil, through programming, and Realms is playable again! As a reminder:
You can reach Poptropica Realms either through the first page of the travel map, or from the returning user page after you log in.
You can also visit our handy-dandy post on sharing realms if you need help with that. 😛
Some other tidbits recently include some monkeys — Night Watchmonk, Berry Scary Monkey, and Charlie the Chocomonkey — landing on other islands when Monkey Wrench Island was released. Sadly, they were only accessible for a short amount time!
For Pi Day, on March 14, a Cream Pie Toss was released that you could throw at other Poptropicans. Also, on March 17, for St. Patrick’s Day, a Leprechaun Follower was released. Both of these were only for limited times, though!
I think that’s it, Poptropicans! 😀
