Memory Lane Mondays #4: The First

Hi, hello, greetings, good day, SB finally made a post today! (Intentional rhyme totally worth it, no regrets!…. *Cringes in corner*) Yup, it’s Sporty Boa here, with a series thought to be forgotten: Memory Lane Mondays!! Why was it postponed you ask? Because I- The thing is… *Sighs and scratches back of head* I was l-lazzz… E. Yeah, laz- e. Anyways, let’s do this!

 

Alright, so on the last chapter of MLM: Memory Lane Mondays #3: The Lab I talked about the place where I witnessed my first ever glimpse of Poptropica: A lab.

MML the lab

No, not that kind of lab! A computer lab! Computer- Lab! (Sporty Boa: Woah calm down Narrator, I’m not paying you to criticize my blogging mistakes!) Anyway, Sporty’s awkwardly shy, third grade- self couldn’t bring himself to ask one of the “cool kids” the name of that fascinating computer game they were playing, so he was left in the blue by the time he arrived back to his mommy’s classroom afterschool. What a wimp!

(SB: Ok that’s it, you’re out narrator guy!

Narrator: Out? What do you mean?

SB: I mean, out! You have been fired.

N: Ah, very well… *mumbles* I didn’t want to work for this blog anyways…

SB: *Crosses arms* Why did I hire a narrator in the first place? Wait, why are you still here??

N: *Sticks out hand* My pay. 20 credits.

SB: *places five creds in hand* Here, now out!

N: Whatever… )

 

Heh, where were we? Of course! That day or sometime later, after school I had rushed into my mom’s classroom, drop my backpack to the floor and made for a pair desktops located the corner of the room. I couldn’t stop thinking of that game… Which was why I was so astonished to see someone playing it right there in front of me! It was my older sister, who was in fifth grade at the time, She was the first. The first on in our family to ever play Poptropica! My mind accelerated as I pulled up a seat next to her and watched, I think my sister was playing Shark Tooth island… I also think I was asking a lot of questions, and I think- I mean, I knew I just had to play it for myself!

 

Thanks for reading Chapter 4 of Memory Lane Mondays! I’d like to give a shoutout to my sister who sadly doesn’t play Poptropica anymore, but still has her account from way- back when! ( I managed to find her old poptropican in the avatar studio here! ) Btw, she’s awesome! Speaking of which, so is my new header and logo! (I made it myself :P) Comment down below if you like the new look! Anywho, I hope you all have and awesome week, and I’ll catch you later, Boa out!

 

Lemme do Lucky Wing’s List Thing real Quick..

Hey guys, It’s the Boa here with a special post about another post… Yeah I’ll explain. So fellow Pop blogger and friend of mine Lucky Wing, posted on her blog a post with basically a bunch of questions about Poptropica. Most of those Qs were pretty interesting, and I think yaboi SB got some answers!… I said I think. Here we go!

( If you want to check out LW’s awesome blog post, click here! )

 

Q: What is Director D’s real name!? Is this bugging anyone else here?

A: It is bugging me!! But I believe Director D’s real name is Derek… I mean, It should be.

 

Q: What color is Dr. Hare’s hair? Bunny or otherwise?

A: I might know the answer, and have scary evidence to back it up!

dr's hair.png

Now this could obviously be fake, (Dude doesn’t have da teeth!) but it was in the official Poptropica photo booth so… I’m going to leave this up to you guys. (that can’t be the Doc, right?!)

 

Q: Why do we even have Survival Island? It’s freaking creepy! This a freaking kid’s game!

A: So kids can learn how to build a fire and be taught real life survival skills! Oh, and to stay away from bears, helicopters, creepy mansions, scary dogs, old butlers, and scary, creepy, old psychopaths!

 

Q: Do you think Ringmaster Raven ever snapped out of his trance? 

A: Do you think the townspeople ever showed mercy on him?

 

Q: Cows. Why are they evil? (It’s back peeps!) 

A: You know, I should find out! *Gathers scientific equipment and straw hat* “I’m living on a pasture for the next six weeks!”

 

Q: Do the inhabitants of the islands notice the ads? 

A: I would think so, I mean how else would Poptropica get their credits?

 

Q: What’s up with the knights? Why didn’t they do more? They’re supposed to be the King’s elite for cat’s sake! 

A: They’re wimps I tell you, WIMPS!!

 

Q: You know those Poptropicans with wings? Like mine for instance, my angel wings? Why don’t they ever fly anywhere?!

A: Cause logic.

 

Q: We really ought to have that IRL Popcon. It would be so much fun!

A: IKR!?!?

 

Q: I think Mews had heard of you. Is that weird? He seems to know you can handle this sorta thing.

A: That’s why Mews is awesome!!

 

Well that’s all the replies I’ve got so far, have an epic weekend, Boa out!

 

 

 

 

Top 8 Coolest Tribe Common Rooms!!

Ayyo, what’s going on guy- Wait wha- what’s been going on with me?? Why haven’t I posted any content in a while, you ask? *leans back in rocking chair* Well…. I’ll save that for another post later on, for now, it’s countdown time!

I know some of you may be a bit confused about the theme, because when you voted last time it said: Top 10 Poptropica Common Rooms. I figured it’d be more interesting and less time- consuming if I ranked all the Tribe CRs instead, since in my opinion, they’re more creative and interactive than the normal Pop Common rooms. (Type in the comments if you agree or disagree with me) Speaking of my opinion, this entire list of my favorite Tribe CRs is strictly my opinion, (I do not intend to trigger you) So with that out of the way, Lets do this!!

 

 

NUMBER 8: PATHFINDERS

*Scratches head* Does this look familiar?… Getting past that fact, the Pathfinder’s concept is displayed pretty well here, but It’s at the top of my list cause reasons…

 

NUMBER 7: FLYING SQUID

Image result for FLYING SQUID COMMON ROOM

I Sporty Boa, am proud to say that I’m a Flying Squid! I’m not so proud to say that our common room needs improvement… I mean, it’s a good concept, but not the one I was particularly expecting, and definitely not as good as the others on this list. (Sadly.)

 

NUMBER 6: BLACK FLAGS

Tbh, I give this tribe’s CR a thumbs up for lots of detail… But personally when I think of the Poptropolis tribe, Black flags, I don’t necessarily think of dead bird skeletons, or gold statues… But that’s just me.

 

NUMBER 5: YELLOW JACKETS

Don’t get me wrong, the Yellowjackets’ Common room is awesome, with it’s buzz- chopper, lasers, city skyline view, oh, and a freaking teleporter! However, I think it’s a bit too much… Before you attack me, just look at the picture above, are you a bit confused? I definitely was.

 

NUMBER 4: NANO BOTS

Image result for Nano bots COMMON ROOM

Woah, calm down people! In my defense, these last four top picks were very hard for me to decide so bear with me, I absolutely love this room, and of all the tribes, the Nanobots have the most interactive common room. I seriously recommend you check it out for yourself!

 

NUMBER 3: SERAPHIM

Image result for Seraphim COMMON ROOM

Wow, this common room is just… A masterpiece! So much detail, So much beauty, so much story… (Nice work Poptropica!)

 

NUMBER 2: NIGHTCRAWLERS

If this is your first time seeing the Nightcrawler’s common room, then like me, you mind has been blown. Luminous colors and creatures roam this majestic cavern… Honestly, I’m almost at a loss for words describing this magnificent room, so I’ll leave it up to you to voice your opinion down in the comments! (*sighs and wipes away tear*)

 

 

NUMBER 1: WILDFIRE

Still no words… Except… EPIC.

 

That’s it for my list of favorite Poptropolis tribe common rooms! I hope you enjoyed and will enjoy the rest of your day, I’d like to thank the PHB for the inspiration and pics, as well as Poptrickia for supplying them with most of the images! That’s all from me, this Boa’s gotta bounce!

 

 

I Guess I’ll Just Chill in OP for a While longer..

Hey everyone! Sporty Boa’s in the building to talk about the buzz of the town… Flipping Poptropica Worlds is out everyone!!! (Wait, everybody knows that already?… *Sits back down and sniffs* I understand.) Of course I know it’s been out, My Brother and I have already played and experienced this “New Pop” game, so today I’ll just be giving my personal opinion about the game as a whole.

Before I get on with the pros and cons of Poptropica Worlds, I’d like to thank the creators themselves for sending me these marvelous graphics I can use for my blog:

VIP graphics.png

(^Looks Epic!^) Any who… Where were we?.. Right, Worlds, below I’ll list things I liked about the game and things that weren’t very likeable. (also keep in mind, just my opinion) So let’s get into it, shall we?

 

First Impressions:

Now that Pop Worlds has officially released, I can finally announce that I was not a beta tester… However, Fierce Flyer (My younger brother) did, I wasn’t offended when I found out, in fact, We both got HYPED. ( If Poptropica is reading this, don’t sue my bro! I was literally sitting right next to him when he got the news) So Asap we got on the computer to check it out and were… Pretty impressed, I mean of course it had its issues but it wasn’t yet released yet to the public, so we figured those quirks would be straightened out… *Checks Twitter and Discord after release of Pop Worlds* …Guess not.

 

What I liked:

  1. Sporty’s New Look: There were two thing I was most interested in seeing from PW (Can I just call it that? *Shrugs*) 1: Crisis Caverns Island and 2: Our Poptropican’s new look and movements, (And 3 would probably be the store) I personally logged in as Sporty Boa and did some work with his outfit with help from the store and he turned out.. Not bad:

Pop Worlds Sporty Boa

 

2. The Store: The pros out-weigh the cons when it comes to the new store, I really like the individualized items we can buy such as: Shoes, Hair ect. I was kinda annoyed that somethings were for “members only,” but hopefully as time goes by we get more swag costumes to wear!

 

3. Your Home/ Home island:

Home PW.png

Excluding crazy glitches and little stuff to do, very nice place to kick back and relax before adventures. (Plus I’d like to meet Captain Scuttlebutt’s parents, lol!)

 

What I didn’t like:

From what I’ve heard from around the community and what I’ve seen myself, It seems Poptropica Worlds has a bit more bad things going for it than good. But come on though, it JUST came out so there’s tons of room for improvements, here what I think needs just that:

  1. Please add Customizer!
  2. Add more Items to da Store
  3. #Youcan’tswimonland
  4. #Weneedourmouths
  5. #StopBleechyBoy2017
  6. Lag
  7. We don’t have our same outfit when we login
  8. #Justfixglitches
  9. Add Colorizer plz
  10. More islands

Soo… Yeah, for now I guess I’ll just chill in Old Poptropica for a little while longer… I’ll see you next time, Boa out!

 

 

 

Sporty Boa’s Popsona + It’s Time to Vote!

Hey, how’s it going Boa buds? (Sheesh, the “Cringe train” has just arrived at the station!) It’s ya boy, SB here and I’ve been dying to share something with you guys for the last like, Six days! And that something is…. My Popsona!

So if you haven’t the slightest clue what a Popsona is, then you need to check out the awesome post the Pop creators sent out on their blog right here! I have to admit, there were some pretty cool and interesting stuff I learned from reading other poptropican’s Popsonas, (Like who knew Smart Flame was a Leprechaun?!… Jk :p) So that encouraged me to make my very own!

Now before I reveal Sporty Boa’s own Popsona, I’d like you 2 check out these neat entries I found on social media:

Btw, I made my own Popsona card a little while before this post, Check it out right here! K, now for the moment you’ve been waiting for… My Per- I mean, Popsona!

Top 3 Favorite & Least Favorite Common Room Games! (ft. Fierce Flyer)

Ayyyo Everyone! It’s SB here back at it again with Thursday Countdown posts, and I couldn’t be more glad cause I got to spend it with my bro, FF! ( Btw If you have no idea who FF is, he owns and amazing blog know as Fierce Flyer Adventures. Check it. ) Before I get into my picks for my Top 3 Favorite and Least Favorite Common room games and the pandemonium, I just want to announce that the following is all MY opinion. I do not intend to offend anyone, plus this blog post is literally just fun and games, so let’s keep the positive vibes going shall we? With that cleared up, here we go!

The Idea:

So I plan on not wasting much time dwelling on details so let’s cut right to the chase: Me and Fierce were just chillin’ on separate computers and I was just about to type up this very post, about my favorite and least favorite common room games in Poptropica. To get better perspective, I literally went to a common room in poptropica in order to refresh my memory of the games. Only problem was, no one in the arcade wanted to play with ya boy, (RIP) they were to.. “busy”. That’s when the idea came to me, I could just set up a multiverse room and play all the common room games with the kid sitting right next to me, Fierce Flyer!

Da Gamez:

So me and my bro met up in a mystical realm know as the Poptropica Multiverse and played. All. Da. Gamez. (Below are some pictures, and Important Notice: all of the games in red= least favorites and Green= favorites!)

CRgames1

Proof of our meet up. (Also don’t question why we’re in the brain lab, I have a pretty dumb explanation.)

SUDOKU:

CRgames3

I am being 100% honest, I’ve never played Sudoku in my life. And in addition, Poptropica never even mentioned the rules to game, resulting in me and Flyer becoming clueless. Even a GOOGLE SEARCH didn’t help! After some time though, we figured it out. (*Mumbles* ..And FF won…) Moving On!

HOOPS: 

CRgames4

I love Hoops!! (P.S. Ball is life.)

SKY DIVE:

Skydive is an addictive and probably the most popular common room game in all Poptropica, no pic needed. (Btw SB wins!)

PAINT WAR:

CRgames5

Fierce Flyer gets a bit triggered at this point… Probably can guess what happened next..

BALLOONS: 

CR

He beat me in Balloons. I love the game Balloons, but by the look on my face, you might thought otherwise lol.

STAR- LINK:

CRgames6

*Sigh* Star-link… I mean I’m starting see why people like this game, but to me it seems too quick and a teeny bit frustrating… Well I guess that’s if your on the losing end of this inter-galactic game… Like I was. (This really doesn’t give me much confidence heading into my upcoming Astro Knights adventures..)

SOUPWORDS:

CRgames7

Welp, the score’s tied 3-3 and it’s down to our last two games. One of which is the famous common room game, Soupwords… (Why is it in Red Sporty?!) The game doesn’t work… For me. I love, love, love the concept but I just can’t click the letters! I mean when I do, they don’t appear on the silver spoon, this resulted in me taking the “L” to my lil’ brother…

PATHWISE: 

CRgames8

This was it, the final game that rested on the top of the list… Pathwise. (Which was Fierce Flyer’s favorite common room game btw.. *gulp*) I. Was. Screwed. I choked! I was up 3-1 and choked! (Like a popular basketball team I know of in the finals… *Cough* Warriors)

I may not have won, but I got all the info I needed to make this list, which was requested by tallmeloniscool FYI. I hope you enjoyed and I’ll catch you later, Boa out! (Notice: FF is also going to make a post about our head- to- head Multiverse battle! Please do not accuse him of copying me! See ya!)

My List:

Least Favs:

#3: Soupwords

#2: Star- Link

#1: Sudoku

Favs:

#3: Ballons

#2 Pathwise

#1 HOOPS!

Discord Disarray & Dismay

Yo it’s SB here with just a short post regarding a serious situation that has to do with my Discord account online. No, I haven’t gotten hacked and It’s not your fault either… It’s just I might have.. (*face-palm*) Forgotten my password… Or something like that, cause when I went online the other day I usually have Discord bookmarked on my computer, but when I clicked it something unusual happened: I was sent to login. (Crud.) I couldn’t remember my password or even the email I signed up with, so until I do, I guess I’m on Discord Hiatus.. Which sucks.

-Sporty Boa

(P.S.) Any advice on what I should do? It’d help… I hope.)

You Haven’t Gone to Space Yet?!?!

Well if you have already read my Earth Day post: ( This Earth Day… ) You would’ve already known that I planned on FINALLY conquering Astro Knights Island on Poptropica. If you’ve already read the title of this section… You would’ve known that I haven’t… technically done it yet. Don’t attack me yet, it turns out that Earth Day Saturday was also the day my family decided to take me on a surprise b-day trip… Which was awesome, but then as the days went by, I got more and more busy and didn’t have time to sit at my computer playing Poptropica’s toughest island for Idk how long… bear with me guys, one day I’ll do it *Looks up at the stars* one day…

 

Hey, hope you enjoyed this “update” kinda post but I’ve gotta bounce, I hope you enjoy your day and I’ll see you later, Boa out!

 

 

 

Top Ten Thursdays: The Honorable Mention

E’llo everybody! Sporty Boa here with some news regarding Top Ten Thursdays! For centuries, (Centuries?? People were writing top 10 lists during World War one?) I mean for years, Top 10, 5, and 3 countdowns were made for the enjoyment of others and thyself. However, sometimes people get triggered, and the creators themselves might have that burning desire to add someone they believe should’ve been on their list… Hence the birth of the Honorable Mention(s)! People, Characters, Places (ect.) that didn’t quite make it now have a chance to shine with honor! So next week’s countdown will mark the “honorable mention era” on the Sporty Boa Blog!

Have a wonderful day! This Boa’s gotta bounce!

Memory Lane Mondays #3: The Lab

Welcome ladies and gents, to a series I like to call, Memory Lane Mondays! This is basically where I talk about my life, (Sport Boa’s life) and the fun times I had (and are still having) with the game Poptropica. So without further awaitment, let’s begin chapter #3, The Lab.

 

Thank you narrator, It’s SB here and last time on MLM, I was speaking of my dearest friends… Whom I never talk to anymore:

trio

And you must be thinking, ‘These guys must’ve helped you discover Poptropica! So sweet!’ Well… Nope. Although my two best friends did introduce me a game I still (kinda) enjoy today, Poptropica wasn’t that game. (*whispers*Roblox was) However, there was a person- no, a place! That gave me my first glimpse of that blue loading screen: The lab.

No, it’s not a science lab like in the feature image, It was a computer lab. A majority of the computer games I enjoyed playing at my new Elementary school were all born in that very lab, including Poptropica. *Sigh* Memories.. Oh right, how’d I discover it? Let the key word there be: Discover. I didn’t necessarily play the game right then and there, I just caught a glimpse of it.. My memory is a bit cloudy but I do remember a couple of kids playing Poptropica during free time in the computer lab, I also remember a bunch of kids who watched them while they played, me included, eyes glued to the screen with amazement and curiosity… And finally I remember me rushing after school to my mom’s classroom eager to play it.

 

That’s the end of Chapter 3 on Memory Lane Mondays, I hope you enjoyed it because I enjoyed writing it! That’s all from me, boa out!
