Daily Dare - March 2012

Go to Daily Dare! Create your own Daily Dare wins image!

Aristotle and Abigail return again this year to bring you new game challenges during the month of March. For 18.5 days (March 7th - March 25th), you will be able to go up against the game playing siblings and duke it out for the top gamer position. This year, their cousin Lulu will host an NC Adventure Challenge.

The Story

On February 29th, King Roo announced a brand new look to the Games Room. The citizens of Roo Island have been very busy setting up the new Games Room in time for the Daily Dare. On the days that followed, the brand new games machine started to malfunction, and had to be shut down.

March 2, 2012
So... what was the motivation for ordering a new Games Room machine on Roo Island, your majesty? Not that I'm not grateful.
Hullo, dear. Don't you love games? Hmm, is it supposed to make that whirring noise? Let me examine the plans again. Hum diddly dum. Beta or not, that part looks upside down...

March 5, 2012
Oh bother, my new Games Room is still making a weird noise. Hum diddly dum. No, it's no use. I'd better turn it off and find a fix for that awful sound and those bu-hmm, never mind. I'll return as soon as I can.
WHAT?! You can't do this! I was just about to win the game... You're going to ruin my Daily Dare!

March 7, 2012
That's it. I've waited long enough. It's time for Daily Dare, and I'm not waiting for royal authorisation. I'm reactivating the new Games Room!

March 9, 2012
Was that a bug? That was a bug! Something strange is going on! Lulu, I think someone should find King Roo and get his help. But I have to keep an eye on AAA in case he gets another brilliant idea.
Yeah, your brother shouldn't be unsupervised. Don't worry, I'll look for King Roo; just let me pack some supplies.

March 9, 2012 King Roo has gone missing, and the Games Room has become infested with bugs. Lulu has gone to look for King Roo, you can follow her adventure here.

March 10, 2012 Help clean up the Games Room from the malicious pests. Find as many bugs as you can, and catch them. See what you can get here.

More bugs?! Aaagh!! Aristotle A. Avinroo, if you don't turn that Games Room machine off right now, I'm going to... to...
Do you seriously think this beautiful invention has anything to do with your imaginary troubles? Run along, little sister. I've got a Daily Dare to win!

March 18, 2012 Blumaroo naturalists report the strange bug population on Roo Island has risen to 438,290. Subjects are advised to remain calm and consume large quantities of Gummy Stamps. Gummy Stamps: the key to a better tomorrow! This report was sponsored by the Gummy Stamp Industry Council.

March 18, 2012
Roo Island is being overrun by weird little bugs and I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! I'm turning off the Games Room machine. Of course, AAA won't stand by while I flip the switch, which leaves me just one option...

March 20, 2012
Hold on, Abigail. I'll listen to your prattle in a minute. Let me just send this sco-ACK!
There! That potato sack ought to hold him. It looks pretty fashionable, too. Now I'm going to turn off the Games Room machine and we'll get to the bottom of this! One... two...

March 20, 2012 Blumaroo naturalists report the strange bug population on Roo Island has risen to 6,714,556. Subjects are advised to remain calm and consume large quantities of Ice Cream Gummies. Ice Cream Gummies: the key to a better tomorrow! This report was sponsored by the Ice Cream Gummy Industry Council.

March 21, 2012
It's no good. The Games Room machine won't shut down. The bugs are everywhere! It was up to me to save the world, and I failed. Darn it! This hero business is harder than it looks! I hope Lulu is having some luck... It sure was an odd time for King Roo to disappear.

March 22, 2012
I have returned! It turns out that the Games Room machine was attracting bugs with a high-pitched noise, but luckily I found a device to counter it. Gameplays power the device, so please pitch in and play games!
I found him, Abigail! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to help King Roo out by catching some bugs with my net.

March 22, 2012 Lulu has returned with King Roo, but now she is off capture as many bugs as she can to help save Roo Island. You can find her prizes here.

March 23, 2012 Blumaroo naturalists report the strange bug population on Roo Island has fallen to 931,040. Subjects are advised to remain calm and consume large quantities of Gummy Gems. Gummy Gems: the key to a better tomorrow! This report was sponsored by the Gummy Gem Industry Council.

March 24, 2012
King Roo, look! The bugs are leaving Roo Island! You did it! You saved the Games Room!
Ha ha, look at the little creatures dancing around, my dear! They're kind of cute; maybe we should keep--no. That way lies madness. And a decrease in tourism.

March 24, 2012 Blumaroo naturalists report the strange bug population on Roo Island has fallen to 51,213. Subjects are advised to remain calm and consume large quantities of Sugared Gelert Gummies.

March 26, 2012
Hurrah! Neopian, with your help, my kingdom has been restored and is now more splendid than ever! This new Games Room will be the pearl of Roo Island. Hum diddly dum!
Yes, thanks for helping me when certain unnamed brothers refused to listen. We make a good team, you and I. Now that Daily Dare is over, make sure you pick up your prizes.

The Basic 18.5 Day Challenge

Basic Challenge
Daily Dare Main Page | Basic Rules | Daily Dare FAQ

This challenge is the regular one that we have seen throughout the past few Daily Dares--Starting on March 7th through March 25th, you get to play against either AAA or Abigail! If you are confident you can master AAA, then pick his challenge. The easier challenge score will be given by Abigail. Once you choose your opponent, you are not allowed to change your choice. For these regular challenges, if you lose an AAA one and do not meet or beat his score for the rest of that day, you will be given the Abigail prize at the end of the Daily Dare event. If you lose an Abigail challenge, you will get no prize for the day.

This year, if you complete each challenge on the day it was released, you will win a bonus prize in addition to the regular AAA or Abigail prize.

The Double Dare Challenge

Double Dare Challenge
Daily Dare Main Page | Double Dare Rules | Double Dare FAQ

This challenge will be offered once or twice each week during the course of the Daily Dare. You can choose whether or not you want to accept it, but once you make your decision, it is final. Accepting the challenge means you will only have to defeat AAA. If you fail, you will receive no prize for the day. You can complete the challenge another day and still receive AAA and Abigail's prize, but you will not qualify for the bonus prize.

The Team Challenge

Team Challenge
Team Challenge Hub | Team Challenge Rules | Team Challenge FAQ

A total of 3 team challenges will be given. They will start each Friday and last through Sunday. You will be able to challenge another user to go up against AAA's or Abigail's scores. If you both beat the score you chose, you will be awarded a team challenge bonus prize in addition to any daily prizes earned.

Here is the complete schedule of when team challenges will be available:

  • Friday, March 9th, 12:00 AM NST - Sunday, March 11th, 11:59 PM NST
  • Friday, March 16th, 12:00 AM NST - Sunday, March 18th, 11:59 PM NST
  • Friday, March 23th, 12:00 AM NST - Sunday, March 25th, 11:59 PM NST

Team Challenges - Step By Step Guide

  • When a team challenge is available, go to the main Daily Dare page. If you get a pop up with a "Take the Team Challenge" button, click that. Or you can click the "Challenge Now" button on the middle of the page, then "Find Out More." Or just go directly to the team challenge hub page. If you are using Internet Explorer and encounter some viewing problems, switch browsers.
  • Decide on the Avinroo sibling both of you will challenge and click the appropriate yellow "Challenge" button. Once this goes through, it will change to a yellow "Play Now" button.
  • Both you and your partner must complete the above 2 steps, otherwise you will get an error message later.
  • One of you must type the other's username into the invitation box. Send the invite.
  • The recipient should refresh the hub page and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page. Accept the invite.
  • Both of you start playing the game, sending a score that matches or beats the one you chose. (Your scores are not combined, so you must each individually beat the score.)
  • If you sent a score but the hub page is not recognizing it, try logging out then back in and playing again by clicking on the "Play Now" button on the team hub page. Or switch Internet browsers.
  • Upon successful completion, you will get the regular prizes and either the AAA team bonus prize or the Abigail team bonus prize, depending on who you both chose at the beginning. Check the main page to see the team bonus item. All prizes should be in your inventory by now.
  • If one of you fails, neither of you will receive the team bonus item, but regular prizes will still be given out. Please see the official FAQ for more information.

The Basics

AAA and Abigail

The basic concept is the same as past Daily Dares: you must pick one of two scores (AAA's or Abigail's). Abigail's score will be much lower than AAA's, giving non-gamers something more manageable to reach! Once you have chosen an Avinroo, play the game and meet or beat their score! When doing the NC challenge, simply go to the NC challenge section and challenge Lulu, then play the game and try to meet or beat her score. There are fabulous prizes to be won (including wearables!).

You cannot do the basic challenge, double dare challenge, team challenge, NC challenge, or staff tournament voting on your side account(s)!

Strategy

Strategy

Who should you go up against? Abigail or AAA? AAA's prize will almost always be more valuable simply because his scores are so high and not as many Neopians will be winning them. Luckily, there is a little method to get the best possible prize. Before choosing who to challenge, play the game. Try to score as high as you can. Once you get a satisfying score that either beats AAA or Abigail, do not send it! Go back to the Daily Dare page and challenge the appropriate person with a score lower than or equal to yours. Then you can go back and send the score, and it will count for the challenge! (Try to beat AAA's score though. Sometimes, it is not as hard as you think!) Always try to complete each challenge the day it was released for a bonus prize.

Trophies

There will be 4 basic trophy types this year.

  • Gold - Beat AAA at each challenge.
  • Silver - Complete all challenges before the end of Daily Dare, beating AAA at least once.
  • Bronze - Beat Abigail at each challenge.
  • Participant - Beat or match at least one AAA or Abigail score by the end of the event.

To claim your trophy and prizes, go to the main Daily Dare page and select claim your prizes.

Daily Prizes

AAA, Abigail, and Lulu

Each day, you can win the prize of the person you have successfully challenged. These are unique to the Daily Dare and can be seen below.

You can get the "Bonus Prize" by completing an AAA or Abigail challenge on the same day that it is released.

A "Team Prize" can be earned by completing a team challenge on the weekends. This is not mandatory--working in a team just offers a special bonus item upon successful completion. You can stick with doing the regular challenges by yourself if you want. If you are having trouble getting the team system to work, see our step by step guide.
