Someone get me off this crazy thing!

A horse is harder to control than a pirate ship! At least it doesn't smell as bad as my scurvy crew...

Maybe I'll see some of you Poptropica Members on Wild West Island this weekend!

Poptropica Tips and Tricks: Reload!

A lot of Poptropica Members are getting ready to journey to Wild West Island this weekend. Wild West Island is one of our most varied adventures to date, with a lot of different mini-games to enjoy. Here's a quick tip that should help you get through one of them, the shooting contest, with flying colors.

Whether you're using the pea shooter or the spud gun, you'll have five shots available before you have to reload (by pressing that big ol' button at the top of the screen). So watch how many shots you have left. If you don't, you'll still get a helpful reminder that you need to reload once you've run out.

But here's the trick: Sometimes, it makes more sense to reload before you're out of ammo. If your opponent is looking at some targets that have already been hit, take the opportunity to reload, even if you've only fired a shot or two. That way, when you find a batch of new targets, you'll have all the ammo you need. You won't have to waste valuable time reloading while your opponent shoots them out from in front of you.

Who is the rattlesnake wrangler?

There's a new costume floating around out there. You can't buy it in the Poptropica Store. You can't costumize it from another character. But you can find it somewhere on Wild West Island.

Have any of you cowpokes found the Rattlesnake Wrangler costume yet?

Have you seen this Mustachio?

Our spies on Wild West Island have managed to smuggle out this picture of El Mustachio Grande, the rootin'est, tootin'est fiend on the frontier.

We must remind you, however, that even a bandit as nasty and foul-smelling as this one is still innocent until proven guilty, which is why we've taken the liberty of obscuring his image here. To see the real El Mustachio Grande, you'll have to play Wild West Island, coming soon to Poptropica!

Snowbound

Hopefully, winter is treating you well so far. It is not treating all of the Poptropica Creators so well. We are covered in snow! It's enough to make a salty old pirate daydream about taking a trip to the beach.

Mythology Island always has a warm and safe place to swim, under the watchful eye of Aphrodite.

When winter weather is this bad, I'd even rather deal with the Booga Shark! Of course, he does have a taste for crawfish...

I always prefer a rejuvenating dip in the waters of the Pirate Outpost. That's how Captain Crawfish got his groove back!

Oh, wait: It's still snowing outside. Drat.
