phb-hallo16-win

Happy Halloween, Poptropicans! 🎃

The day has come for us to announce the winners of the PHB’s 8th Annual Autumnal & Halloween Contest, so here it comes. We’ve gone through your spooky and stylin’ costumes and, what with your stupendous fashion senses, it was quite the task to narrow it all down! In fact, we’ve decided to have 6 per category instead of 5 as originally announced. Here they are…

🍂 The TOP 6 Fall Costumes! 🍂

We were totally falling for these amazing fall/autumn attires. But hold on, there’s more…

🎃 The TOP 6 Halloween Costumes! 🎃

As we announced in our contest post, each of these ten twelve winners will receive a one-month Poptropica membership, courtesy of the Poptropica Creators! (Winners, keep an eye on your email.) In addition, their spiffy suit-ups will also be immortalized on the PHB’s Costumes page.

But there were so many awesome entries that we couldn’t stop here – so we’ve selected several Honorable Mention winners as well. The prize for our HMs is simply the honor of being featured here:

👻 Honorable Mentions 👻

There’s one last Spooktober Special to get to today… the Stolen Snapshots!

Here are the anticipated answers for where each spooky snippet is to be found:

  1. Back Lot Island (the set in Studio 1)
  2. Mission Atlantis, Episode 3 (the hole made by the Leviathan)
  3. Astro-Knights Island (the candles in the secret Mordred club)
  4. Monster Carnival Island (one of the horses on the carousel)
  5. Super Power Island (the comet)
  6. Vampire’s Curse Island (the clock on top of the cinema)
  7. Zomberry Island (this is on top of the Smoothie shop)
  8. Haunted House (bathroom)

  10. Ghost Story Island (cemetery)

Although nobody got all of them right, two Poptropicans did each get three right: Tall Cactus and Muddy Kid. As for those who got two or less, they are Zany Panda, 3milyCx, Shaky Skunk, and Spooky Cereal. Congratulations!

Thanks to everyone who participated in any segment of our Autumnal/Halloween competitions! We hope you enjoyed dressing up and guessing at inverted snapshots in this sp00py month of October. Congratulations to all the winners, and to every Poptropican in the neighborhood: happy Halloween!

Smile! Hey guys, Slip here.

Are you ready? Man, it’s already Snap-tember! We’re on our way down to the end of 2016! I hope there are more surprises for us to discover!

Speaking of surprises – Stolen Snapshots is back! I’ve got a crazy awesome announcement for all of you. There won’t be any snapshots in this post. Wait, what? Yep, no snapshots in this post.

I know you’re wondering there, but let me introduce you this month’s PHB event… by posting it in the GIF below!

Steal, snap, search! | Stolen Snapshots Round 3.2!

snapround3.2

Here’s what just happened:

  • This morning, I walked by Fred’s Fruit Stall in Eastman. He said that a few of his strawberries were stolen. Isn’t that a strawrobbery? 😛
  • I flew to Istanbul on Game Show Island, to buy something, when a robot started going amok. He turned the place into a flee market.
  • A new exhibit got stolen from the art museum in Counterfeit Island— it was a sculpture made out of soap. The thief had a clean getaway.
  • I got a ticket for speeding last night in New Jersey looking for the Jersey Devil. It wasn’t a fine night for me.
  • The last thing I heard about Ringmaster Raven, is that he was arrested for committing a featheral offense.

Enough with the puns! Let me welcome you to the other half of Stolen Snapshots for this round! It’s been two weeks since the last round and we’re here to start anew!

The previous half of the round was so cool—everyone tried their best to participate and guess the snapshots! Shall we open the answers? I hope you’re ready because here we go!

  1. SOS Island, the red warning light on the island’s rescue camp.
  2. Astro-Knights Island, the cracked window of the Crop Circle Inn.
  3. Wimpy Boardwalk, the lights on the Fastball Fury sign.
  4. Reality TV Island, the poster on the window inside Mike’s Market.
  5. Survival Island (Episode 4: Cabin Fever), one of the tapestries on MVB’s wall.

For what you’ve all been waiting for, who won? Who nabbed all the correct answers? Well, no one did, but I’ll be giving credit to those who nearly won! You guys are truly awesome.

Stolen Snapshots: July 2016 (Part 2)

Stealing more snapshots! (Round 3.1)

snapround3.1

What you seize is what you get. Am I right? Well, the thief has struck once again and stole some snapshots along the way! Before I begin, I have to share today’s news headline:

STOLEN SNAPSHOTS NOW BIWEEKLY

stolensnapshotsphb.png

Two weeks ago, Poptropica detectives have agreed to do double-time in the search for the stolen snapshots, and the search will now be done biweekly. Thanks to Poptropica’s Police Headquarters Bureau, the search will be on full swing.

Welcome to another round of Stolen Snapshots! This is our third round, first for the month of June! Once again, Stolen Snapshots is basically a hide-and-seek game that tests your knowledge of Poptropica scenery, where you guess where it came from!

Last time was quite fun, I believe everyone had fun guessing where it came from! With no further ado, here are the answers for last month!

Answers for May 2016:

  1. Home Island, a toy car in the store from the Poptropica app (I took a picture of it before it was patched on the web version, sorry for that!)
  2. Cryptids Island, the window of the convenience store in New Jersey.
  3. Super Power Island, one of the edges of The Daily Paper building
  4. Game Show Island, the blinking light above the door of the Robot Museum.
  5. Arabian Nights Island (Episode 3), the bowl in front of the secret passage in the hall. (painting)

Now, let’s see how everyone did! According to my record, everyone got at least 50% correct on the snapshots; thanks to everyone who tried guessing! Now, the results! Only one of you got all the answers correct, and that lucky Poptropican is…

🌟 Dr. Suriv! 🌟

Dr. Suriv sure is one lucky guy! He will be immortalized on the Stolen Snapshots page shortly. Congratulations!

Now for the moment that you’ve all been waiting for…the first 5 snapshots of this month’s hunt! It’ll be a set of 10 each month, so 5 snapshots every two weeks!

Stolen Snapshots: June 2016 (Part 1)

The mechanics and the reward of the game are posted below. Make sure to read them, do your best, and get on to guessing! Go!


Mechanics:

  1. You are only allowed to have 1 answer for each picture. You may leave your guesses in the comments of the post or the PHB’s Stolen Snapshots page.
  2. If you think the answer is wrong, you can try and comment again.
  3. Answers will be revealed each round in the post, not the comments section.
  4. There are 5 winners each round, to be featured in the next post.
  5. Anything unrelated to the snapshots will not be accepted.
  6. Of course, enjoy the game!

Reward 🏆

Check back next month to see if you made it to the Hall of Famers! All of the winners will get a chance to be immortalized on the Stolen Snapshots page, right here on the PHB!

Y’all stay awesome, okay?

Someone’s stealing snapshots… (Round Two!)

Welcome everyone to the second round of Stolen Snapshots!

roundtwointro

For the newbies, Stolen Snapshots is basically a hide-and-seek game that tests your knowledge of Poptropica scenery, and it’s up to you to guess where each picture is from!

I’ve seen that a lot of you had a hard time guessing those tricky snapshots that I’ve left last month. What’s more depressing is that none had perfected the snapshots! I wouldn’t want you to wait this long so, here are the answers for last month’s snapshots!

Answers for April 2016:

  1. 24 Carrot Island, a recolored version of the carrot cake in the billboard in front of the factory.
  2. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island, one of the hanging pots inside the Inventing Room.
  3. Mocktropica, a painting inside the common room: The Blue Locust.
  4. Red Dragon Island, in East Edo, the bird on top of the shogun statue.
  5. Vampire’s Curse Island, inside a hole in the Great Hall (accessed by members only).
  6. Night Watch Island, near the shark tank inside Crawl Mart.
  7. Mocktropica, on top of the cheese factory.
  8. Shrink Ray Island, one of the windows in the cafeteria.
  9. Virus Hunter Island, Joe Stockman’s stove in his apartment.
  10. Monster Carnival Island, one of the crates in front of the big tent.

Here are *some* of the winners from last month. Since there was none who guessed them all correctly, here are the ones who guessed at least one correct answer! Congratulations!

  1. Tall Cactus with 1 correct answer! 
  2. Short Feather with 1 correct answer!
  3. Pinku Randomness with 2 correct answers!
  4. Creepy Goose with 6 correct answers!

Another thing: I want to ask is that if you guys prefer to have this monthly or biweekly. I am considering this so that a lot of people can play Stolen Snapshots because if it’ll be monthly, the game could get buried underneath a lot of posts. If it’s biweekly, it’ll be quite hard when school gets busy, but it’ll be better for you guys. Would you like it to be that way or nah? Leave your suggestions below!

Now, let’s move on to this month. Ten snapshots might’ve been too difficult, so I’ve reduced the number down to 5 — although, the number of snapshots may vary each month!

Stolen Snapshots: May 2016

Make sure to read the mechanics down below, as well as the reward for correctly guessing them all!

Mechanics:

  1. You are only allowed to have 1 answer for each picture. You may leave your guesses in the comments of the post or the PHB’s Stolen Snapshots page.
  2. If the answer is wrong, you can try and comment again.
  3. There are 5 winners each month, to be featured in the next post.
  4. Anything unrelated to the snapshots will not be accepted.
  5. Of course, enjoy the game!

Reward 🏆

Check back next month to see if you made it to the Top 5! All of the winners will get a chance to be immortalized on the Stolen Snapshots page, right here on the PHB!

Stolen Snaphots on the PHB!

Hey guys, Slip here! Say cheese!

Remember Stolen Snapshots, which originally premiered on my blog?

I’ve finally decided to move Stolen Snapshots from my (Slippery Raptor’s) Blog to the PHB! I believe that Stolen Snapshots will be a great addition to this blog, and it’ll be a great chance to interact with community members!

What’s going to happen is that every month on the PHB, I’ll be featuring 5-10 mystery snapshots. They will always be posted at the end of the month.

Stolen Snapshots is basically a hide-and-seek game that tests your knowledge of Poptropica scenery, and it’s up to you to guess where each picture is from! To explain a bit further, here are the mechanics of the game:

  1. You are only allowed to have 1 answer for each picture. You may leave your guesses in the comments of the post or the PHB’s Stolen Snapshots page.
  2. If the answer is wrong, you can try and comment again.
  3. There are 5 winners each month, to be featured in the next post.
  4. Anything unrelated to the snapshots will not be accepted.
  5. Of course, enjoy the game!

With no further ado, here are the snapshots up for guessing this month! (Click to enlarge the images!)

Stolen Snapshots: April 2016

Make sure to check back next month to see if you made it to the Top 5! All of the winners will get a chance to be immortalized on the Stolen Snapshots page, right here on the PHB!

Now’s the time to show off your sleuthing skills on the PHB, and I formally announce that you can begin guessing in 3…2…1… GO!
