PHB Parties

Recap: PHB’s Thanksgiving Party 2016!

thanksgiving-party-phb

Hello, everyone! What are you thankful for?

Yesterday, the PHB announced the 2016 Thanksgiving Party to give thanks to the amazing Poptropica community (whether you celebrate Turkey Day or not)! Despite the short notice, we’re thankful that a number of Poptropicans were able to attend! Check out the recap collage above – and thanks to Pea Sea (Purple Claw) for helping out with pictures!

The party took place in a few Multiverse rooms on Poptropica as well as the Poptropica Help Chat on Discord. It began at 3 pm EST (although some eager Poptropicans rallied up a few multiverse rooms a little earlier) and went on til about 5 pm EST. Within the duration of the party, we enjoyed a plethora of lagging in Multiverse rooms with the activation of store items like sneezing powder, popgum, fart guns and fireworks. Some rooms even crashed from all the activity!

A few PHB authors also made an appearance, and we enjoyed chatting, battling and seeing many of you come out and make this party another success! It was also nice to see a few festive Poptropicans dressed in foodie and autumnal attire as well. If you weren’t able to make it, that’s okay! The PHC is always open, so feel free to stop by anytime and make a few new friends: it’d be a pleasure to have you!

Thank you for continuing to show your support and thanks for coming out! Hope to see you next time, and happy feasting!

Happy Thanksgiving! πŸ¦ƒ

Happy Thanksgiving – with a helping of Poptropica scoops!

Hey Poptropicans! :mrgreen:

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we here at the PHB would like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving and thank you for being part of the Poptropica community! πŸ˜€ But there’s more than turkey on the platter today – check out the latest helping of Poptropica news below.

Along with the thankful festivities comes Black Friday, a day characterized by long lines and shopping deals – andΒ according to this tweeted pic, it’s coming to Poptropica! What exactly that means remains to be seen. Deals on Pop merch, membership, or Store items bought with credits? We’ll find out soon!

To get a peek at what else is coming to Poptropica, check out the PHB’s Daily Pop Sneak Peek Archive – just updated for the month of November! A few pics seem to indicate that some renovation is underway for Home Island’s Shop and – Adventurers’ Club? Could be the common room, which is currentlyΒ different on mobile and online.

There’s also been some trickery going on with the Phantom gold card from the Store – the slider to adjust how transparent you appear recently made a subtle disappearance! Now there’s only one mid-range opacity level you can play with. Poof.

If you’ve logged into Poptropica recently, you may have seen a few new ads. There’s the SuperChargers ad mentioned in the last post, but it’s not the only one. On Mystery of the Map Island, watch the video for Disney Infinity 3.0 to get the Disney Infinity Gear!

Also, there’s a View Master ad on Timmy Failure IslandΒ with a room you can enter. Go in and claim your 360 Teleporter Power and Island Warper Power! Press space bar to activate their special effects. (Thanks to Hyper Gamer for the tip!)

πŸ¦ƒ Happy Thanksgiving, Poptropicans! πŸ¦ƒ
Even if you’re not celebrating today – we’re thankful for you. πŸ™‚

Comics, Labs (Land), Monster Carnival Island

Carnival creatures, Land worlds, comic, & Thanksgiving cravings

Hey Poptropicans! You can consider this post a continuation of my last post I suppose (I posted it just before a ton of new tweets came out). However, this one will be a little longer. πŸ˜‰

First off, the Creators released another piece of Monster Carnival concept art, again for the creatures.

I think my favorite is the bottom left. πŸ˜›

The Creators released another planet-related post as well (although it is not related to Galactic Hot Dogs). Instead, it is a sneak peek for Poptropica Land!Β I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we will create… A WHOLE NEW WORLD!!! XD We’ll get to manage our own worlds – pretty neat stuff!

I don’t know about you guys, but this looks amazing to me. Anyone getting a “Spore” vibe? πŸ˜€

In other news, we have a Poptropica comic sneak peek to share – most likely for the confirmed upcoming graphic novel!

Hehehe… XD

Before I go… Happy Veterans’ Day! You may not celebrate the occasion, but it’s still good to just say thank you for those who have protected you.

On that note, Poptropica just can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

Hmm… now I’m craving turkey and corn on the cob! πŸ˜›
