The PHB 10 Million: Mystery Snapshots Competition

Mystery Snaps

UPDATE: The answers have been posted! Click here to view them.

Since its birth back in the summer of 2008, the PHB has, as of today, reached its biggest milestone yet: ten million hits (and it only took five years)! That means this blog has been viewed 10,000,000 times, and that comes from you guys, our lovely readers –ย so thank you very much for your support!

In celebration of this milestone, I’ve prepared a little game featuring 10 mini puzzles of small snapshots from various areas in Poptropica. Your task is to guess where in Poptropica they were taken!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Post a comment numbered 1 to 10 with your guesses. Have at least the island name, and put the specific location if you can – its name on the map or an even more detailed description.
  2. You can work together with your friends or other commenters. Help each other check locations, post as many comments as you like, and as long as you have a comment numbered 1 to 10 with all correct answers, you’ll win! If you prefer figuring it out yourself, don’t read the comments yet when you submit your answers. Also, copy others at your own risk (they may be wrong!).
  3. I’ll post the correct answers the following week. Those who have everything correct will get their names mentioned in the post! So without further ado…

Can you guess where these came from?

BONUS PUZZLE: Where’s Slanted Fish? (What characters is she surrounded by?)

    Ok, here we go:
    1- Vampire’s Curse
    2-Mythology
    3- Game Show
    4- Zomberry
    5- Time Tangled
    6- Spy
    7- Err… I’ll get back to this one later…
    8- SOS
    9- Counterfeit
    10- Skullduggery

    Yeah, that’s what I got so far. This will probably sound pretty negative, but as I was guessing the pictures, I was thinking about what was the point in guessing the pictures when most of them have possibly been guessed correctly already.

    Oh yeah, congratulations on the 10 million hits, PHB! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Slanted Fish says:

      The point is just to have a bit of fun solving simple Poptropica-themed puzzles, and as I wrote above, you don’t have to look at the comments if you prefer to guess by yourself. Not all of them have been guessed correctly, either! ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Brave Sky says:

      6- Giant comb next to common room
