(I’d be more than happy to make a header for your blog if you have one, just hit me up!)


Inactivity Update

Yeah, it’s kinda obvious how inactive I’ve been on this blog recently, and it bums me out as much as it does for you guys.  With my family’s big move last year, Poptropica’s quiet community, and Senior year, I think it’s safe to say my motivation has somewhat deteriorated. BUT, by no means does that imply I’m shutting down the SBB or quitting blogging altogether, I enjoy it too much, I still have a lot left in the tank in terms of ideas and plans. (Fierce and I are cooking up something pretty cool for the PHB, stay tuned!)

The thing is, I had and still have a lot going on in terms of real life. But from now on, I’ll put the effort in trying to post more, trying to make time. Hopefully, everything will fall into its right place. Thanks for being patient, thanks for being awesome, Boa out!

Top 5 Best Poptropica Island Endings!


Hey all, It’s Sporty Boa coming at you (finally) with a new blog post! As many of you know, the types of posts I love to do on the blog are crazy countdowns, so why not get back into the swing of things with a Top 5 countdown list of the best Poptropica island endings!


Part of the Journey is the End

A crucial part of any story is the ending. Endings tend to provoke thought or evoke a feeling, endings are what make the journey worthwhile, or a complete waste. Endings are-

Random Guy: *rolls eyes* We get it.

Right. Anyways Poptropica’s island endings are no exception. Although some contain epic final boss battles, this list will focus less on battles and more on the climax and overall endings to islands. Also, remember this is all solely my opinion, you guys are free to share yours in the comments below! 

Alright, here’s my list of the top 5 best island endings!


Honorable Mention: BLACK LOT ISLAND

Few things seem more gratifying than seeing all your hard work pay off on the big screen! Black lot’s cinematic ending saw me becoming a successful, world-renowned filmmaker… In the world of Poptropica, I mean.





Counterfeit is one special island. The memorable characters, a creative, art-centered theme as well as the twist and turns of the plot unveil a spectacular storyline with everything ending how it should. Speaking of unveiling, how bout’ that secret art gallery tho?




Image result for cryptids island bigfoot

Perhaps my favorite Poptropica island of all-time, Cryptids Island raises the stakes BIG time. I’m talking Bigfoot big, as the sasquatch’s well being and oh- a MILLION BUCKS is on the line! Literally, the line of rope you have to detach from the villainous Gretchen Grimlock’s helicopter mid-flight! It’s a heart-pounding rescue, but as usual good defeats evil, and your Poptropican does the ultimate good of donating the cash prize to look out for the big guy.





Entering top 3 territory! Ok, this one may lean more on my personal side of things, but after 5 episodes of fighting for your life in the frigid and relentless wilderness, sticking it to MVB, and blowing that popsicle stand is soooo satisfying.




Image result for poptropica mystery train island ending

What can I say about this island’s ending? It’s practically perfect. The suspense, the thrill, and the challenge all made this island’s climax some of Poptropica’s best work. I never actually pictured myself chasing some crazy French lady though the Chicago World’s Fair, but then again, I never imagined saving Bigfoot either. Gotta love Poptropica!


And now finally…

You might’ve guessed it would be close between my picks for #1 and #2, and you are most certainly correct. However, while many Poptropican island endings including Mystery train’s, give you the sense that everything going to be alright, Time Tangled Island actually shows you that everything is going to be alright!  There’s quite a difference between sensing and knowing outcomes. Knowing that your efforts in fixing the past have resulted in a beautiful, cleaner and greener future is so worthwhile. (Also seeing that old man me is living a good life, the afro is still in style!)


That’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed my list of the Top 5 Best Poptropica Island Endings, I’m interested to hear your feedback or even requests for my next countdown post here on the blog! I can’t see the future, but I hope you all have an awesome day! This Boa’s gotta bounce, see ya!


(P.S. Seriously, Time Tangled Island’s ending gives me hope for a better future, remember to always make eco-friendly choices and look for/invest in positive solutions!)

Top 3 Most Underrated Poptropica Islands!

Hi again my friends! I told ya I’d catch you later- well not literally catch- You know I meant! Anywho, If you’re wondering why am I back so early,  it’s because today’s Thursday! Which means Top 3 Thursdays on the SBB! Finally! Today’s Theme is Under-the-radar Poptropica Islands that don’t get as much credit as they deserve. I made this list myself, so it is very opinion-based. Therefore, if you strongly disagree or agree with my list, you can let me know or even make your own Top 3 underrated islands list in the comments, I’m interested in your opinion! 🙂

Well, nothing left to do but countdown my top 3 picks so… Let’s do this thing!

I have to give this incredibly creative and unique Poptropica island an honorable mention! I’ve heard people mention Mocktropica as their personal favorite island and I don’t blame them. I love this island’s concept, design and pet NARFS!

Image result for mocktropica narf

Which by the way, are pretty popular amongst the Pop fandom. (Which is part of the reason this Island isn’t ranked lower) All an all, the creators deserve tons of- if not more credit for pulling this off!

(Oh, Forgot to mention that this island in my humble opinion, has one of the least talked-about final boss battles in Poptropica!)



NUMBER 3: S.O.S Island

Image result for sos island

Now I know I’ve mentioned this Island multiple times on my blog and a few references to it have been tossed around the community from time to time, but I just can’t have this list without S.O.S island on it. It’s just SO GOOD! As one of my favorite islands on Poptropica, I wished it received more praise. Some may say S.O.S Island is a little too difficult and that takes away from the fun, but to me, a little challenge doesn’t hurt!

Random Guy: Says the same guy who still hasn’t completed Astro Knights Island yet.

Me: Hush you!

Anyways, to add, it contains a lot of memorable characters and creatures that should have their popularity points increased amongst the fandom such as Captain Boomer, Stubb the Mechanic and Ishmael (My whale-whispering, bro). I think you get the gist, SOS Island is underrated.



NUMBER 2: Black Lot Island

Related image

Ever dreamed of being a celebrity, filmmaker, or a producer? Well, you can be ALL THREE on Black Lot Island! Sadly though, not much buzz has surrounded this masterpiece. I mean come on people, I had a blast with this island! The sunset scenery and backgrounds were stunning, and also watching all the hard work come together in the end was quite satisfying.

NUMBER 1: Night Watch Island!

How could we forget how awesome and crazy Night Watch Island is?!?! My bro and I loved every last bit of the ‘Mall Cop Life’ as we continually played through it all day. However, upon arriving in the community, we barely heard a word of how awesome chasing the masked Preston Welhiem through the mall’s A/C vents was or how flipping cool Little Eddie the segway-hijacking serpent could be! I just think this island needs more praise and recognition for being one of the best Poptropica islands I’ve ever played.


Well, there you have it, that was my list for the Top 3 Most Underrated Islands in Poptropica! If you enjoyed this post, make sure to check out my Top 10 list of the Most Underrated Poptropicans! And don’t forget to drop a like and continue to have an awesome day! This Boa’s gotta bounce, I’ll see ya around!


P.S. I just remembered I wanted to put Lunar Colony on this list… Maybe it should’ve been a ‘Top 5’ post after all :/

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!




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

Image result for 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!




Image result for 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.




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!




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.




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.




Image result for monster carnival island

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.





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 😉




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!




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.




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!




Here’s the Deal…

Hey friends, Sporty Boa here with just a short info post about what’s going on with my blog. Just want to let you know that by no means have I lost interest in Poptropica. Heck, I was just playing it the other day! Anyways guys, A lot has been going on in my daily life and it’s kinda getting in the way of my “blogging life”. For one, my cat Thankful is pretty sick and has been to the vet like 3 times in the past week, also I have Summer courses that need to get done before school begins in the fall (I’m actually going to attend a real public high school next year rip). To make a long story short, I want to thank you guys for being cool with my crazy ‘blog breaks’ and just being here for me no matter what. With that being said, This Boa’s gotta bounce!

P.S. New blog posts are coming soon (I didn’t change my blog’s design for nothing!) just bear with the Boa, your patience will pay off 😉

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.




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!
