January 24th is fast approaching, and you know what this means: Poptropolis Games Island will be sinking back into the sea. We don’t know why the Creators would take down the tribal tournament island, or if/when we’ll ever see it again… even the Plant-a-Statue isn’t too happy about the news.
The island’s description says that this ancient Poptropica capital rises “once every 100 years”… but what does that mean? If we’re to take that literally, we’d all be old or dead in a century. Some might think Poptropica years operate faster than Earth’s, but then what about the annually-updated time device on Time Tangled that reflects the current year here?
You may have noticed your Poptropolis item cards saying “Poptropolis Games 2012” at the top. Another theory is that perhaps the island will rise during Olympic years – after all, Poptropolis Games opened around the same time as the 2012 London Olympic Games, so maybe we’ll see the island again for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
