  1. Midnight, I'm not sure how you got the Babaa with Flowers and Neggs for just 125? I had to buy the dust 5 times. Can you explain? Here is my adopted Xweetok HayleyAW with the same. I'm trying different backgrounds with this.
  2. About the Mysterious Magical Neggs. Can someone answer some questions for me, or point me to where I can find the info? I just read the guide about them but it didn't tell me everything. Basically, I'm considering getting just the Babaa with Flowers and Neggs, (and maybe one other item, but to simplify I'll skip that for now). Is there any way to just get the Babaa? I've never traded for an NC item before. (Maybe someone should link me to info about that and what I would have to do to get one). If I don't get one by trade, but have to use NC, how many days left do I have to use one of the Magical Neggs? Is it too late to get the Babaa? Any info and suggestions are appreciated, thanks.
  3. I've done both. For example, I was able to sell one of the Avocado Cookbook for 34,000 early the first day they came out. Some people may have sold some for even more. I know someone who sold a garland for 45,000. Since the prices were already dropping, why not sell instead of holding on to an item that will be worth so little 2 days later? But I've kept some of each too, and have the option of saving them forever or selling if the price ever goes back up someday. Hedge your bets. But if you didn't already sell when things were high, the prices now for most things aren't worth getting just a few thousand for now when the future upside is there. If you want to see the current values of past years Negg Festival items, try this link. Note the years at the top.
  4. For the second time in one day, Neopian nobility* has blessed me with a slightly valuable item. This one has the oh-so-appetizing name of Blancmange Yummm... (I'm pretty sure that Clarence Chichester Coggeshale is an English Earl or at least a viscount. I'll ask Jellysundae to confirm. )
  5. I have a Third Place at Tax Beast Trophy as well. I just did some searching, and found this old thread about it. Yes, apparently on some day in the past, each of us got robbed enough to merit this distinguished honor. One more reason to bank your NP as quickly as possible. (This is a case where winning Gold means losing a lot more gold!) I usually keep less than 20,000 NP on hand at any time, partly because of this and similar random events that steal NP.
  6. Well it's not much but it is...different.
  7. Unless I'm mistaken, the only prize still worth more than a few thousand NP is the book. So, I keep picking the Willow Negg. So far, just the dress and the foreground for me. I was looking at the past festivals on Jellyneo. Is it just me, or do the past prizes current values seem much higher than ones from this year's event will likely be in the future? Also, if more people play this year, does that increased supply depress prize values, or increase demand and raise their values?
  8. I had used Firefox for years on Neopets and still do on most sites. However, I eventually switched to Chrome for Neopets. It took care of some issues I was having with Firefox and flash games not working properly. I haven't played those individual games you mentioned, but I suggest trying them with Chrome, despite what it says. I believe Chrome updates automatically from Flash, which may explain why it works better now for me. For example, the Expellibox is much quicker now. It was very sluggish with Firefox. But you may find some games play better with Firefox than Chrome. I know you mentioned Shockwave, not Flash, but I believe they are both helped by using Chrome.
  9. I've never played it before so I'm just going to submit a 143, but I need a partner for Abigail. Message me on please. EDIT: I found a partner, thanks!
  10. I'm guessing you already know this, but since even veterans sometimes forget: be sure you haven't submitted your score yet. I just had to explain this to someone on the boards who lost out on the prizes because they jumped the gun. It happens every year to many good players. I held my score to the side and lined up the team invite and so forth.
  11. This answers a question I've had about Daily Dare. Does a tie work as a "beat" in order to win. I guess it does. This is my first time ever playing this. I practiced several times, kept falling short, and finally watched most of the video above (thanks Musical_Shoyru). I got a 303 and then stopped. I found someone on the boards and prizes won.
  12. Wow, I'm usually bad at left-right arrow games, and have never played this before. But I beat Chadley on my first try, and with a 1248!
  13. I'm looking for a thread covering this entire Daily Dare Event of 2017. Since I don't see one, I'll ask about trophies here. I've never been that active in DD events before so I'm not sure if I still qualify for the Silver Trophy. There is some confusing and ambiguous language used: Silver - Beat AAA's score at least once and complete all the challenges before the end of the Daily Dare. So far I've played almost all of the games, usually on the same day, and usually challenging Abigail because I have less game experience or to get her prize instead. I have beaten Chadley twice so far (Whirlpool and Usul Suspects.) But I haven't done Breakaway yet. When it says "before the end of Daily Dare" does it mean before that day, or before the event as a whole is done? If I play Breakway (and/or maybe other games as well) before the whole event is up, can I still get a Silver Trophy? Or did I need to do each challenge on the first day to get a Gold or Silver trophy? And this is from Jellyneo: I know that "in lieu of" usually means instead of, or in place of. Did they mean something else here, perhaps "in addition to" or "regardless of whether you earn a trophy" ?
  14. Thanks for the explanation. My edit to my last post was because I didn't remember seeing the Battledome link at the bottom the first time I posted. But maybe it was there. If it was there I'm not sure how I could have missed that big blue bar, so I'm thinking it was added later. It's not a big deal, it's more of an eyesight and memory issue now.
  15. Thanks to those who explained about the Water Powered Pistol. I think Jellyneo should change how they classify it, if it has more value as a weapon than a toy. At the very least they should add the Battle Magic link to the same page. I just noticed that Rynarok has a thread about it here as well. EDIT: OOPS--either Jellyneo added the Battledome stats since my previous post, or I missed it when I posted before. Either way, I stand corrected. (Does anyone know if it was changed by them or did I just overlook it completely?)
