Where else can you have some fun at the Deserted Fairground? The rigged fair Coconut Shy is where you can pay Leeroy the Quiggle 100 NP to throw a ball at (and try to knock down) a coconut!

How to Play

Click "Start" to play, then aim for any of the five coconuts with your mouse. When you think you have it in the right spot, click to throw the ball.

Despite any appearances otherwise, this is entirely a game of luck. Regardless of where you click, your result is random; your click location only affects which coconut gets animated. There is no specific pixel you need to line up with to guarantee it knocks over, or even to get 50 NP!

You are limited to 20 throws per day, so make them count! It is possible to knock down a coconut more than once in a single day if you are extremely lucky.

How to Play Without Flash

Flash was officially discontinued in January 2021, but TNT has yet to release a Flash-free version of Coconut Shy. Fortunately, the game can still be played without Flash by following the direct link below. The result page will show an unformatted result text rather than a pretty graphical interface, however, the possible results are the same. To play multiple times, simply refresh the page!

Following the below link will play the game immediately! Please make sure you are logged in to your main account (not a side account) before clicking.

Prizes

After throwing the coconut, you will receive one of the following outcomes:

  • You miss (0 NP)
  • You hit it, but it barely moves (50 NP)
  • You almost knock it down, but it just wobbles (300 NP)
  • You knock it over (10,000 NP, an Evil Coconut from the table below, and the avatar)
  • The coconut explodes (500,000 NP)

Tips and Strategies

As mentioned above, this is entirely a game of luck. Regardless of where you click, your result is random; your click location only affects which coconut gets animated. There is no specific pixel you need to line up with to improve your chances!

Ollie Appearance

Like many Flash games on the site, this game was worked on by Ollie, also known as the Phantom Orange Shirt Guy. After throwing your ball at a coconut, click the right eye of Leeroy the Quiggle (technically his left eye) to make Ollie appear for a short while. He can only be summoned after Leeroy performs his signature "kick while laughing" taunt, which is not to be confused with his "point while laughing" or "stare unblinkingly while laughing" techniques.

For a full list of Ollie's various appearances, check out our Phantom Orange Shirt Guy article!
