Poptropica Can be Shamrocky, But McDonalds Can’t?

Latest Shamrock Shake:

Better, but not minty enough.

Anyway, thanks to Mighty Drummer for pointing this out to me: 2 new items in the Shamtropica… I mean, Poptropica Store!

Ha, I scored a shut-eye picture! So, that’s the costume, but there’s another new item!

Gum! Is it minty? Because I need to replace Shamrock Shakes.

So what do you think of the new items? Have the Creators made a spectacular addition to the Shamtropica… I mean, Poptropica (I’m hungry, okay?) store, or has it been an epic fail?

The Astro-Knights Island Guide…

…written by the Poptropica Creators!  That’s right, the Poptropica Creators have released an Astro-Knights Island guide!  Everyone can access the guide.  Here’s the post written by Captain Crawfish, telling more about it.

Announcing the Astro-Knights Island guide!

For some time now, we’ve been noticing that Astro-Knights seems to be the toughest Poptropica Island to beat. We think it’s time to lend our fellow Poptropicans a hand.

Introducing the Astro-Knights Island guide!

This is a free item that you can get by going to Main Street on Astro-Knights Island and clicking on the vendor kiosk. Go to your Island inventory to use it.

You’ll find a step-by-step walkthrough for Astro-Knights Island, as well as quick links so that you can jump to the specific challenge that’s got you stymied. Each step is accompanied by a video that shows you exactly what to do.

We hope this helps some more of you earn that elusive Astro-Knights medallion!

Just so you know, I will still put the Astro-Knights Island guide that I am currently writing on Icy Comet’s Blog, just because I am right in the middle of it and I don’t want all my hard work to go to waste.  😉

You Should Vote for Directer D.

…Or should you?

Why you should vote for me, Director D.

Hello, Poptropicans. It has come to my attention that I am currently lagging in the polls behind Medusa.


Elections such as these are about issues, and no issue is more important than a candidate’s appearance. I ask you to consider my perfectly coiffed salt-and-pepper hair, and then look at the hideous mess of wriggling snakes that Medusa calls a hairdo. Or, rather, don’t look at it, because you will immediately turn to stone. That’s the kind of villain she is. I, on the other hand, only want what’s best for you: a sleek, aerodynamic cranial appearance.

I mean, honestly, Medusa? She’s not even the main villain on Mythology Island. Zeus is! Medusa is a miniboss at best. I don’t even think she’s qualified to participate in this election. Until we see her longform boss certificate, we should consider her an illegitimate candidate.

You have one day left to vote in this round. Vote Director D. for best Poptropica villain!
