Festival of Neggs Coverage

2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017

2012 Festival of Neggs

When it gets close to Easter, Kari breaks the monotony of working at the Neggery by giving Neopians fun puzzles and quests to complete! There are plenty of rewards just waiting to be claimed. If you have some spare Neocash, you can also participate in some NC quests that are being offered.

The Festival lasts until April 22nd. Day one will start on the 2nd, and continues through the 3rd.

Please see the official FAQ for more details.


Patterned Neggs

Each day, a new plastic Negg will be available to find. You can find the Neggs that have been released in any order and on any day; however, if you keep up and collect Neggs on the day they're released, you'll get a bonus prize. After collecting all four Neggs in a particular category, prizes will be unlocked and you will be able to select one.

To participate in the hunt, visit the Festival of Neggs page.

Neopets Premium users should log out of the Portal before attempting the hunt. You can do this by clicking on the animated rotating arrows icon.

The Mysterious Negg

Zaira is on a new mission to help Kari with the Negg Festival. She has discovered a journal with the details of some sort of uber-powerful Negg. You will be able to help her track down this Mysterious negg by visiting the Negg Faerie Assistant's Alcove.

Logic Puzzle

The first part of the quest involves a Logic Puzzle. You join the Negg Protection team as they set out to hide the Clockwork Negg. They each take one negg to a different Neopian land. As clues are given, you have to determine what team member traveled to what world to hide what negg. You can use our Solver Grid to put the pieces together. (Alternately, we have provided a blank grid if you choose to solve the puzzle on your own).

Logic Puzzle Clues
Journal Entry 2
Now that the team has been assembled, we've begun gathering our provisions, packing our things, and figuring out where the mysterious Clockwork Negg will be hidden (as well as who will be the one to protect it) . One thing we've decided is that, to throw off those that might seek out the relic, the team's remaining members will be taking different types of Neggs to four other destinations.
For instance, the wizard of the team (whose name is Selvin) insisted on not going to the Lost Desert�something about a fear of Scamanders, apparently. That was fine with the rest of us, so it's been decided that the wizard would go elsewhere. Meanwhile a team member named Voughn, who appeared quite taken with the look of the cloud Negg, insisted on taking that one to its destination. Again, there was no argument from the rest of us, so that's settled.
Journal Entry 5
Today was the day that we settled on who would be going to Shenkuu. One team member, Rutu, seemed particularly enthusiastic to be going, saying that it had been a longtime dream to visit such an exotic location. Another mentioned that now is an ideal time for stargazing, since the night skies are unusually clear this time of year. On the other hand, things got kind of awkward when the knight of the group stated that being the one to transport the clockwork Negg was absolutely out of the question. Nobody else had an issue with doing it, though, so it didn't become an issue.
Journal Entry 8
It seems our wizard is not so fond of Brightvale, either. Could a sudden plague of Scamanders have taken over King Hagan's realm, too? Anyhow, the traveller responsible for delivering the glass Negg was more than happy to go there. Speaking of the glass Negg's transport, it certainly seems like that would be a lot of pressure to live with—after all, one misstep or accidental drop, and smash! There goes your precious cargo. On a lighter note, luckily for our volunteer, they've had unseasonably good weather along the route to Brightvale lately; here's hoping that it continues 'til the journey's conclusion.
Journal Entry 9
A decision was made today as to who would be transporting the Clockwork Negg. In the end, Hurok was excused from consideration due to claims of "not liking the look of the thing." Let's just say that, if not liking the looks of someone were grounds for exclusion, then our pal Hurok would've probably been gone long ago. The group's explorer has been ruled out, as well; among the many reasons the explorer gave was that the whirring of the Negg's gears made it difficult to sleep (I for one, will be relieved once the explorer's snoring is no longer around to keep me from sleeping at night). Speaking of sleeping, it's been a long day, and tomorrow is looking like it could be even longer, so I'd best try to get some shut eye.
Journal Entry 12
There was a bit of confusion this afternoon, which led to an awkward situation that, thankfully, was comically resolved. It all began when someone called out, "Rutu!" in an attempt to get the blacksmith's attention. When the blacksmith didn't respond, the team member who called out the name angrily walked over and asked if there was a reason why they'd been ignored. Chuckling, the blacksmith said, "Because my name's not Rutu," at which point everyone else laughed heartily.

It turns out the reason the team member was calling for the blacksmith was to request the delivery of the sand Negg. "I don't have to take it to Altador, do I?" the blacksmith asked. "That would require sailing, and I tend to get seasick." The blacksmith was then assured that, no, the sand Negg would not need to be taken to Altador. Upon learning this news the blacksmith responded by shouting "Yeah!" and giving an enthusiastic fist-pump... which smacked directly into an overhead branch, resulting in what's likely to be a few days' delay as we wait for the blacksmith's hand to heal. Brilliant...
Journal Entry 14
When trying to decide who would transport the plant Negg, one member of the team abruptly said, "To be honest, I don't care which Negg you want me to deliver. I will say, though, that as someone with a serious sweet tooth, my destination of choice would be Kiko Lake. It's not even close—I mean, all that rock candy and taffy? Mmm!" And so, it was decided that the plant Negg would go to Kiko Lake. Unfortunately, the next morning the plant Negg's deliverer noticed that the wicker basket in which the Negg was to be transported had a huge tear along one of its lower corners. There is currently no known culprit, but it's suspected that this is the work of Meepits...
Journal Entry 17
Well, if there's one thing that everyone is now crystal clear on, it's that the botanist does NOT like being called Ricky, even if it's as the result of a perfectly innocent mistake. Apparently, the slight dates back to the botanist's childhood days, when an unmerciful bully named Ricky taunted and terrorised them to no end. Duly noted, the rest of us affirmed, and have promised to do our level best not to let it happen again. In other "everyone's on edge, so we should probably get going soon" news, it seems that some prankster has hidden the knight's lucky plush toy, and we have since been informed that nobody's going anywhere until it's returned... *sigh*

And so, the time has come for us adventurers to go our separate ways. Should anyone sufficiently clever and dedicated happen upon these words, then—having read this far—I would daresay they'd quite likely be capable of guessing the destination of that which we seek to protect...

Logic Puzzle Results and Prizes

So, it turns out that secret of the journal has been deciphered! Apparently, Rutu the poogle botanist was in possession of the Clockwork Negg, which was hidden away in Shenkuu. With so many smart Neopians working on it, I was sure that someone would figure it out. Still, I'm relieved to learn that the truth's been uncovered! Maybe come back by tomorrow and we can take a closer look. I need to get back to the Neggery for now.

Cracking the Negg

In this step of the mysterious negg puzzle, you will need to crack the code on the Clockwork Negg. Enter the Hidden Cave and click on the Ancient Negg Scrolls. You will then be faced with a cryptic puzzle on the Negg, and will need to solve 3 sides of this Negg in order to continue.



Ancient Negg Scrolls

To solve; at the top of the negg, there will be a symbol. By rotating the arrows at the bottom, you can select which symbol to work on. On the left hand side is the key to unlocking that face of the negg. (Make sure the symbol on the top of the negg, and the symbol on the top of the scroll match!).

Each face of the negg will need 3 of each color, and 3 of each symbol. The key on the left side tells you where each symbol/color will go on the puzzle. On the bottom of the key, you will be able to select the color and symbol to place on the negg. You can submit each side seperately. We have included some examples below.


Each of these color/symbol combinations will be used ONCE on the negg puzzle.

Example 1 | Example 2

Example 3 | Example 4

Click to view full size

Example 1 Explanation: Example 1 shows that 3 fire symbols on the first set of squares will overlap with the fire symbol on the second set of squares. (as you can only have 3 of each symbol on the grid). This tells you, that the first set of symbols goes on the bottom left of the negg grid, and the second set of symbols goes on the top right of the grid.

The next set of squares shows us the colors. The yellow in the first set, will have to overlap with the yellow in the second set. (again, you can only have 3 of each color on the grid). This tells you, that the first set goes on the top left of the negg grid, and the second goes on the bottom right.

Once you have those sorted, you can logically work out which symbols/colors are missing from the grid, and fill them in appropriately.

Negg Cracking Prizes

At last, the mystery can be revealed...

The mysterious Negg you've discovered is starting to open... what could possibly be inside? It's only a matter of moments now... to think, of all the obstacles you've overcome to get here... there it goes, aaand...

You've simply got no choice�the ominous dark matter is spreading, and the fumes are just getting worse. Quickly gathering up the things that you've found on the botanist, you make a run for it...

Neggbreaker Battle

In this last step, the Notorious Neggbreaker has awoken, and tries to destroy the Clockwork Negg. You will not want to fight this beast without some help. Make sure to grab the Ancient Negg Amulet located inside the Clockwork Negg



Ancient Negg Amulet

Once you have obtained the Amulet, you will need to equip it to your pet before entering the Battledome. Using the Ancient Negg Amulet, you will easily defeat the Neggbreaker and earn the Ultimate Negg of Destruction.
