Top 5 Great & Not-So-Great Vacation Spots in Poptropica

What’s up friends, SB here with a new countdown post… On a Sunday? (This blog’s all over the place) Anywho, it’s the season of Summer for most people, and around this time peeps like me enjoy the green outdoors and go on wild vacations! But some people, *Glances at Random Guy* Stay indoors and go on wild vacations… In their dreams that is, because they sleep half the day! (Which is pretty much how I spent my summer irl, lol) So I cooked up a top 5 list of the best Islands to visit during the Summer as well as a top 5 list of worst vacation destinations. But don’t take my word for it, just my crazy opinion (But don’t say I didn’t warn you)! Hope you Enjoy my Lists!

 

 

NUMBER 5 (Great): POPTROPOLIS

No better way to enjoy the Summer than the Poptropolis Games on Poptropolis!

Beautiful locations, Vibrant tribes, Great Spirit, and SPORTS! Pretty much an epic vacation spot that literally rose from the ocean, add it to your ‘Must Visit’ list!

 

 

NUMBER 5 (Not-So-Great): PELICAN ROCK ISLAND

Well… At least it’s an island? Let’s be honest, nobody wants to spend their Summer vacation is a highly-fortified prison, even especially if it’s on an island.

 

 

NUMBER 4 (Great): WIMPY BOARD WALK

I was kinda hesitant to include the Wimpy Boardwalk Island on the list since it is Members only, But then I realized that some of the best vacation spots are off-limits to the public! This is basically a summer vacation as a Poptropica island! I mean, you get to play beach-side carnival games as a part of the mission! Sure some were rigged, but still!

 

 

NUMBER 4 (Not-So-Great): SUPER VILLAIN ISLAND

Image result for super villain island

Wow, another intimidating, high-security, island prison! Accept this one’s waaaay more dangerous. Any island with “SUPER VILLAIN” in the name should be avoided this Summer… Unless your a crime-fighting hero, which is basically everyone in Poptropica.

 

 

NUMBER 3 (Great): SKULLDUGGERY ISLAND

Don’t let the name fool you! Although it is/was a pirate war zone, after the defeat of Captain Crawfish you really start to notice how cool and interesting the places and people are here. Also, just taking time to cruise across the seven seas is a relaxing experience, that is, until a giant sea monster shows up.

 

 

NUMBER 3 (Not-So-Great): MONSTER CARNIVAL

No this isn’t a happy, fun, or silly type of carnival, It’s the type of carnival that will leave you sad, miserable and scared silly. This isn’t a very good place to take the family, especially during the evening hours.

 

 

NUMBER 2 (Great): GREEK SEA ODYSSEY/MYTHOLOGY ISLAND

Vaca.png

There are a bunch of  awesome vacation destination around Poptropica and Poptropica Worlds too! A pair of great examples include Greek Sea Odyssey and Mythology island. Go and visit! There are some absolutely stunning structures and locations within both islands (Especially Poseidon’s Beach & The Hera statue!) as well as a variety of Pop-ular characters we all know and love 😉

 

 

NUMBER 2 (Not-So-Great): VAMPIRE’S CURSE ISLAND

NG vacation

(That’s me questioning this life decision)

Unless you really, really, really love vampires, I wouldn’t advise spending your Summer here. Islands like this one and Ghost story are known for their dreary setting, questionable people and lack of sunlight, Hello? There is no Summer without the freaking SUN!

 

 

NUMBER 1 (NOT-SO-GREAT): S.O.S. ISLAND

Image result for sos island poptropica

Picture this: You’re on a huge cruise ship! But while in the freezing north Atlantic, the cruise ship smashes into an iceberg! While the ship slowly sinks into its watery grave, you make a last-minute escape and spend the rest of your summer cruise on an ice flow. Worst. Vacation. Ever.

 

 

NUMBER 1 (GREAT): SHARK TOOTH ISLAND

Image result for shark tooth island

I love this place! I keep revisiting Shark Tooth Island for it’s sandy beaches and delicious coconut milk, also my buddy Joe (AKA Shark Guy) lives here so that’s a plus! Just… uh, don’t go in the water before the sharks have been fed. *Nervous laughter*

 

 

Well, Now I’ve gotta decide where to go on vacation this Summer! I hope you enjoyed my 10 good and bad vacation spots in Poptropica! If you want, you can re-order or recreate this list in the comment section. For now though,  I hope you continue to have an awesome Summer break and I’ll catch you on the flip-side, Boa out!

Top 5 Most Powerful Poptropica Villains!

Salutations, to Poptropicans around the nations! It’s me, SB and as you can see… I’m done rhyming. Happy Thursday to all, I’m super psyched to jump into this list but first just a few announcements:

Participate in my Random Guy Challenge! It’s my very first time hosting a contest here on the SBB and anyone’s free to join in! I won’t bore you with the deets cause they’re all packed into this blog post: The Random Guy Challenge! (SBB’s First Contest) so if you’re interested, don’t hesitate! The deadline is this Sunday. Also…

The Odyssey is open to All! Yep, you read it right, Poptropica’s latest island, Greek Sea Odyssey is open to all players! Go check it out, I certainly will!

Important Notice: The following countdown list is completely my opinion. If you agree or disagree with my choices, you can tell me in the comments, even providing your own version of my list!

So… Let us find out who the most powerful Pop Villains are!

 

 

HONORABLE MENTION #1: E.VILLE (Legendary Swords)

Related image

Located on a far away planet within the Legendary Sword Mini-quest, an new e.ville rises to power (I had to with the puns! XP). In my all-time favorite Poptropica mini-quest, we are introduced to a vast, powerful army of evil robots planning to take over infiltrate and conquer Poptropica. They appear to be ruled over by a robot named E.ville, and after battling through his artillery first hand, you realize: This guy is no joke.

 

 

HONORABLE MENTION #2: CAPTAIN CRAWFISH (Skullduggery Island)

You should all know his name. The most feared pirate in Poptropica, Captain Crawfish and his crew were the most powerful people on the Seven Seas… Of course, until your Poptropican defeated and then stranded them on an island. :l

 

 

NUMBER 5: BETTY JETTY (Super Power Island)

Image result for betty jetty poptropica

Without a doubt the most formidable of the escaped and powered-up villains, Betty Jetty can fly while shooting powerful blasts of green energy that literally could knock you out of the sky. *Has flashbacks of boss battle* Very powerful, very painful… Energy blasts. *Shivers*

 

 

NUMBER 4: OMEGON (Poptropicon Island)

Image result for omegon poptropica

Holy Cow, what can I say about this guy? Maybe I can just show you this picture of him:

Image result for omegon poptropica

 

“Why isn’t he No. 1 SB? He captured all the Aveng- I mean, heroes and it took all their powers to defeat him!”

Great points fellow reader, but in my opinion, his evil reign was too short. For me it was kinda like: O, Meh, Gone.

 

 

NUMBER 3: DR. HARE (24 Carrot Island)

Dr hare

The Hare makes the top 3! I mean, world domination, ultimate power, and all the carrots were right at his fingertips… But because of your heroics, he wasn’t able to hold on. Maybe next time Doc.

 

 

NUMBER 2: BINARY BARD (Astro Knights Island)

Image result for binary bard poptropica

It was so close between him and #1! Binary Bard is an amazing, in-depth, and powerful villainous ruler/ inventor and what separates the gap between him and E.Ville is the fact that E.Ville conquered a planet while Mordred had a PART OF THE UNIVERSE under his control! Not to mention a wave of ultra-powered cyborg bosses, and the Bard’s giant mech he battles you and Merlin with in the finale. Binary Bard has earned this spot!

 

 

NUMBER 1: ZEUS (Mythology Island)

Image result for zeus poptropica

I didn’t have to think twice. (Wait, actually I did.) Zeus, the ruler of the Greek Gods and incredibly powerful god of lightning. You have to give everything you got along with the help of other Mythical Greek legends to help you defeat him. And even when you do… He will come back. He’s ZEUS for goodness sake!

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed this list as much as I did writing it! Continue to be awesome and I’ll catch you later, Boa out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Random Guy Challenge! (SBB’s First Contest)

Greetings folks! SB here to direct your attention to my friend roommate, Hungry Bug!

HB: I preferred it when you called me “Random Guy”…

Welp if you’re new or have no idea who Hungry Bug (AKA Random Guy) is, He’s that guy who usually pops outta nowhere to roast me in some of my posts. If you look back at my old blog posts you’ll probably be able to find cringe and Random Guy won’t be far either. Plus he also recently Took over my blog so he’s not the most awesome roommate on the planet… Now where were we? Right, directing our eyes and attention to that good ol’ fellow!

Random Guy: *Stands awkwardly* Um… They can’t actually see me dude.

Sporty Boa: Oh riiiight… *Smirks*

RG: Oh no, you have your “idea” face on…

SB: Yes sir!

 

CONTEST TIME!

What do you think Random Guy looks like??

I’m excited to announce that the Sporty Boa Blog is hosting its very own contest! (The community hasn’t had one in a while) I call it the “Random Guy Challenge” and here are the rules!

Random Guy: This is an awful idea.

 

RULES:

1)It’s simple, since I already know what Random Guy looks like, I’ll provide 3 clues to give you something to start with. Then it’ll be up to you guys to either draw or customize in Poptropica (Worlds or Original) his perfect look!

2) You can send me as much submissions as you please, as long as they’re not inappropriate

3) You can send them to ya boi via discord, twitter or even the comment section (Just post the link!)

4) The deadline will be next Sunday, March 18 @Midnight

5) The 1st place prize will be revealed at the end of this post (The others are tba)

6) That’s pretty much it,  if you have any questions cast them below in the comments!

Random Guy: I’ve got a question.

Sporty Boa: Okay, whatcha got?

Random Guy: *Crosses arms* What are these “clues” about my appearance? They better not be something dumb like, “He looks like an idiot” or something.

SB: Heck no! But to answer your (and probably everyone’s) question, her are your clues!

RG: Here we go…

 

CLUES:

  1. Random Guy’s skin color is a light grey
  2. He always wears a hat
  3. Favorite color is Dark Gray

About a week from now, I’ll show off your designs here on the blog and reveal RG’s real appearance! The one concept with the closest resemblance to my design wins and will receive the prize of a guest post or a drawing by me! 

And there you go! No get out there and customize/draw/create the ultimate Random Guy! This Boa’s gotta bounce, Peace!

 

 

 

Hiatus Over! And… You’ve Got to Sea This

Sup dudes and dudettes, Sporty Boa finally here to deliver a blog post to you guys!

 

HIATUS OVER

Yeah, I took a little break from blogging. Not because I was bored or lazy, but because things have been pretty busy for us, (FF and I) Traveling, school work, personal stuff… Yeah, so I’ve been booked.

Random Guy: *Holds list of excuses* So you won’t be needing this?

Sporty Boa: Yeah no.

But now I’m back to blogging! And perfect timing too because…

 

POPTROPICA IS RELEASING A NEW ISLAND!

(Zeus looks freaking amazing! Shout-out to the PHB for the image!)

To be precise, the island is called: Greek Sea Odyssey and I’m incredibly hyped for it! “The Odyssey” Is my favorite Greek mythological story and I’m very interested to see how Poptropica has incorporated that story into this new island, so can’t wait!

 

WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

I’ve got a lot of cool new ideas and plans for this blogs future. As I mentioned in my blogiversary post, this year is going to be epic on the Sporty Boa Blog! Well all that’s left to say is to stay updated for new posts and have a great weekend, Boa out!

 

Happy Sporty Boa Blogiversary!!!

How’s it going Poptropicans? Sporty Boa here and happy to announce… TODAY’S MY 1-YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!!! I guess the New Year has official begun on the SBB… This is crazy!

 

ONE YEAR AGO

Honestly, it’s felt more like a hundred years! I don’t think you’ll understand how excited I’ve been for this day. Over a year ago, I had just remembered Poptropica. The game I’d spend hours playing and watching my siblings play, The game I’d talk and read about constantly, the game that has brought a new light upon my life… A new happiness.

 

ENOUGH ABOUT ME.

… You know what? Enough about me. I wouldn’t be where I am without you, and I dead serious.

My brother, Fierce Flyer reminded me about Poptropica, He inspired me to blog, and he is the reason why I’m here. Hopefully I don’t offend any of you for saying this, but Fierce is the one I’d like to thank the most. He held opened the doors for me as I entered the Pop community for the first time, unaware of the amazing things we’d accomplish once there. My respect and gratitude goes to you Fierce Flyer, Thanks.

FF may have opened the doors, but he wasn’t the only one there to greet me. I’ll never forget the fellow community members who supported me and my up-and-coming blog; Purple Claw, Smart Flame, Lucky Wing, Tallmeloniscool, ShayShayGamer, Bendy Flyer, Friendly Whale, AlexaHalfSiren, G-hopper, and Slanted Fish,  just to name a few. Each and every person who took the time to read at least one blog posts deserves some recognition in my book, so thanks to you all!

 

WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO SAY?

There is a lot more to say, Segment title! I just don’t think this blog post can contain it all… I’ll just end this post about the past in a few words about the future: It’s going to be awesome!

Well congrats to the Sporty Boa Blog for 1 year of awesome, fun, Sporty Boa-ness, and more to come! Remember, Great experiences make great stories. Stay amazing guys, this Boa’s gotta bounce!

Sporty BOA2

 

 

I’m Back and Random Guy Explains What Happened

“-And I’m making the post right now so you can explain!”

Oh hey guys! SB is back on the blog for good this time. *Casts Random Guy a quick glare* If you’re not aware of what I mean or what’s going on, It’s best if you read this blog post first: Random Guy Takes Over Blog! *Takes deep breath* Okay, to answer your question of, “Where’s SB?” I’ve been…. Sort of…

(Dun, Dun, DUN!)

ON VACATION

(Imaginary Drum Guy: “Oh…”

Sporty Boa: “What’d you think, Random Guy held me hostage?”

IDG: *Shrugs*)

I left to visit my family around Poptropica. Celebrated my older sister, Happy Sky’s birthday on Pelican Rock Island (Don’t Ask), then flew over to Counterfeit to congratulate my bro on becoming an author for the Poptropica Help Blog, you guys understand right? I just never expected my blog to be hijacked by Random Guy of all people!

 

CARE TO EXPLAIN, RG? 

Random Guy: Jeez, who knew bold and all caps lettering could be so intimidating!

Sporty Boa: Get to the point; Why did you do this?

RG: Okay, here’s what happened: 

Sporty left a few nights ago and precisely told me to, “Take care of the place… And DON’T forget to feed the cats!” before shutting the doors behind him. (Btw if you’re wondering why I was at SB’s house in the first place, it’s because we’re kinda roommates… I know, terrible right?) So I, being the kind-hearted person I am, did exactly what he said, I took out the garbage, fed pesky Rusty & What’s-her-name, and even did my own dishes! So YOUR WELCOME SB.

SB: *Crosses arms* My blog tho.

RG: Getting there! 

So about a few hours after the kid left, my keen and very observant eyes caught something sitting on Sporty’s ‘blogging desk’, it was Rusty. I shooed him away and there before me was Sporty Boa’s laptop! Which he forgot.

SB: Heh, *Scratches back of head* That’s why my bag felt so light… My bad.

RG: Yep, Pretty much all your fault.

SB: Whoa hold on, Me accidentally leaving my laptop here didn’t mean for you to hop on my blog, change up my profile, and start posting whatever you wish!

RG: Ugh… Fine, I ap- apolo- *Coughs* Apologize. It won’t happen again… *Grumbles*

SB: Heck yeah it won’t. 

I myself would like to apologize to you, the viewers, for all this. It wasn’t my intention but here we are. At least now you guys know the story, and things can officially go back to normal! As for Random Guy… Why do we even call him that?

Random Guy: Don’t do it, SB.

Sporty Boa: His real name is actually

Random Guy: I swear if you…

SB: … Hungry-

RG: Quit it!!

SB: *Smirks* Bug. Hungry Bug, Hungry Bug, Hungry Bug! 

HB: *Covers face with hands and groans* I really don’t like you.

Sporty Boa: Welp, that’s what you get!

Well hope you enjoyed this blog post, continue to be awesome and I’ll see ya around! Boa… And Bug, out!

 

Random Guy: Oh by the way, Dr. Hare is coming here with a Death Ray.

SB: WHAT?!
