Return of the Pop Quizzes and Candy Crazed

Hey Poptropicans, pop in for quizzical and historical craziness! ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿญ

This past week, players have noticed an interesting feature popping up upon login: daily questions! It’s reminiscent of the former Pop Quizzes feature from the Flash days, though without cute accompanying illustrations nor a place to show off your answers on your profile.

The “daily questions” don’t seem to show up for everyone or all the time. So far, unlike previous Pop Quizzes, they’ve been preoccupied with pop culture, asking about preferences on social media platforms (TikTok or Instagram?) and TV shows (Wednesday or Stranger Things?). Curiously, these topics beckon towards a demographic of ages 13+, older than Poptropica’s purported audience of pre-teens. ๐Ÿค”

Despite leaning towards older players with the new pop quizzes, however, it seems the gameplay is still gearing towards much younger kids! The Candy Crazed Mini Quest from 2021 has returned to offer credits for replays of the gumdrop-grabbing game. Find it on the map or via Master Huggles on Home Island, and check out our guide here! ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ

Speaking of Home Island, though, there’s still no sign of the Baron’s airship this month. Curiouser and curiouser…

It hasn’t escaped our notice that the Pop Creators have been quieter than usual this month. Only days away from the end of February, we’re finally seeing the month’s first post on the Creators’ Blog โ€” and it’s a guest post, on the heels of a previous one by the same writer.

This time, guest blogger Invisible Ring takes a look back at the original cast of Creators that would post on the official blog. Though there were aliases aplenty, her Field Trip Files focus on a few, analyzing their roles with links to old posts: Vlad the Viking as Photographer, Comic Kid as Cartoonist and Investigator, Binary Bard as Spy… and she’d be remiss not to make a mention of herself โ€” Possible Infiltrator indeed! ๐Ÿ‘€

If you enjoyed this peek into a more personable past, you might also like our Poptropica Creators Database, where we matched up some of the former Pop team’s real identities with their alter egos.

Veteran players everywhere reminisce about the work ethic, experience, and punctuality of this team, talking about the old days of how these ancient masters would run the island world like a well-oiled machine.

How ironic to have this shared by the current team, hmm? ๐Ÿ˜œ Yet Ring concludes with hope: “Sensational moments were possible for them, and theyโ€™re possible for us, too.” Let’s hope so!

  1. About the Poptropica Creators Blog being quiet for so long…
    D’you guys think that this costume contest we’ll get to meet the prince’s mother? Or hear from Rumpel? Or the Baron?

    1. I am pretty sure we already met her during October. but I am waiting for if there is going to be some more things to do with the red queen, that green weasel, and the baron and this whole thing in general. yes the suspense can drown you and I am pretty sure all of us are waiting for more ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I have a problem: My pop quizzes are always the same thing. I have had this issue for a week now and has never changed since the first question. It keeps asking me “Have you ever won a contest?” and “Yes/No” as the answer. I answer it every time it shows up but never goes away. Is there anything I can do?

What's popping, Poptropicans?
