Heat wave!

Whew! I don't know how it is where you are, but it's incredibly hot outside of Poptropica HQ!

It might be our fault. Just yesterday we released the new Member-exclusive items for Wimpy Boardwalk in the Poptropica store, which included the sizzling Heat Wave power. Today, bam! Sweltering weather outside.

We hope you're staying cool on the first full day of summer, unless you live in the southern hemisphere, in which case we hope you're staying warm on the first full day of winter. Either way, we'll have some hot news about Wimpy Boardwalk for you very soon!

Get a grip

Some of the boardwalk games on Wimpy Boardwalk have spectacular prizes that you'll be thrilled to win -- but maybe not this claw game. What is that?

The right profile

With Poptropolis Games now open to everyone, you might have noticed a slight enhancement to your profile page. Now, you can see what tribes all your friends have selected, and show off your own tribal logo!

If you haven't joined a tribe yet, go to Poptropica and play Poptropolis Games to make your selection. Or just choose from your profile page! It's that easy.

It's available to Poptropica Members only during Early Access for Poptropolis Games. That means that this costume will be gone from the store in only one week!

Going for the gold

The good thing about the Poptropolis Games is that you don't need to place first in every event in order to win the gold medallion. The winner of the Games is the one with the best overall performance, which means you can have a few clunkers and still come out on top.

It's a good thing, too! Some of these events are tough. I laid an egg on the pole vault the last time I played.

Some of you may have already won the gold medallion, but has anybody out there placed first in every single event? That's a feat we'd love to see!

Remember, Poptropolis Games is open to Members now. It will be available for everyone to play on June 14.

The third wheel legend

With the new Wimpy Boardwalk Island coming soon to Poptropica, this bit of news caught our eye: the cover for the next Diary of a Wimpy Kid book!

As many of you know, Wimpy author Jeff Kinney is the original creator of Poptropica. His next book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel, comes out this November. We can't wait to read it!
