Meerca Chase Colours: More Than Just a Background?
GAMES ROOM - Have you even wondered why, while playing Meerca Chase 2, you are
allowed to choose your own background colour? Blue-Yellow-Red-Green-Grey-Peach-Turquoise-Purple
and White. They could make or break your game, so which of our beautiful-backgrounds
is the most popular?
According to a survey conducted by this reporter the results are as follows:
52% preferred blue
12% preferred white
10% preferred yellow
8% preferred grey
8% preferred peach
6% preferred purple
4% preferred turquoise
0% preferred red
0% preferred green
When asked why our participants chose the colours they did their comments ranged
everything between the weird:
“I like yellow because it reminds me of the colour of my grandmother’s teeth.”
And the wonderful:
“My fav. background is the dark grey. Not because it's pretty or fun, but so
I can see those dang red neggs.” - wolfgirl9898
What’s the point of all these colours? You ask, well here are a few pointers
about how these colours can be useful to you.
1. It is widely acknowledged that many colour-blind people are blissfully unaware
of what they are missing. Play Meerca Chase to discover if you are colour blind!
2. Make a n00b, or spammer, look bad by recommending that they use one of the
least useful colours, such as red, which can be distracting. They will do badly
at the game and will immediately be filled with remorse and shame. (We hope!)
But the third, and final use for the colours of Meerca Chase is the most important.
Using Meerca Chase as a swift and accurate character assessment! The internet
can be dangerous; picture this scenario: you have just been contacted by a fellow
user who requests to be your neofriend. How do you know what they are like?
Well, fortunately Meerca Chase provides a useful and relevant test. Simply ask
the hopeful neofriend what colour they like best as a background, and compare
the results with the following diagnosis. With one easy move, you will be able
to discover whether this bond will make you neofriends for life, or have you
fleeing neopets for your life!
BLUE: Congratulations! You have just stumbled upon a calm and friendly neofriend,
who will doubtless provide you with many useful tips on games and trades. Look
forward to a peaceful friendship; they will only reply when you contact them,
will not plague you with neomails, and will be useful and helpful.
WHITE: You may not have all the fun in the world with this neofriend; granted,
they provide no threats to your items or neopoints, but they will not provide
any fun for you either.
YELLOW: This neofriend will provide you with endless fun, in the form of new
games, funny and witty neomails, and fine jokes. While they may not be particularly
useful, they will certainly provide amusement.
GREY: Oh dear…well, as such there is nothing wrong with the person who chooses
grey; however, do not expect a happy and blissful friendship with this person!
At best they will ignore you completely after you accept their offer of neofriendship.
At worst, they will send you brisk and snappy neomails whenever you dare to
PEACH: If the person you are quizzing answers peach, I suggest you accept their
neofriendship immediately. A peach person is mild and kind and will never forget
to neomail you back. While they may not be as fun as a yellow person, they will
be far more loyal even than blue. Expect a long and happy relationship.
PURPLE: Saddle up for a lecture! A purple person may be perfectly nice and
very knowledgeable about neopets…or at least, they will be more knowledgeable
then you, and will not let you forget it! Expect endless emails of advice and
tips on how you could play trade and shop better. Choose this person for a neofriend
only if you feel you are easy going!
TURQUOISE: A turquoise neofriend will certainly stick around, to the point
of not leaving you alone! Friendly and desperate for amusement, they will neomail
you constantly and expect a reply! While they are fun in small doses, note that
you will need to be online a lot of the time to deal with a user who chooses
RED: Useful, amusing, fun and a good person to know, red choosers are easygoing
and witty. Accept their neofriendship at once, though don’t feel too hurt if
they constantly contacting you, only to ignore you for a couple of months. Red
choosers are flighty, but if you can put up with the long stretches of silence,
they are a good friend to have.
GREEN: If, when quizzed, your hopeful replies green, you must take a gamble.
They're helpful and seemingly friendly when you need them, but you never know
what goes on in a green's head. Be too persistent or annoying, and you will
find yourself snapped at and cut-off. Not for the sensitive or weak hearted!
I hope you will find this guideline useful, and don’t forget, if you really
want to know a person, just remember to pop that deep and insightful question;
“On Meerca Chase which colour do you prefer?” And never plunge into an unknown
Please note; the guideline is just a bit of fun, don’t take it too seriously,
and certainly don’t base your future friends on the test; that would just be
No, if you really truly want to find out who your neofriend is, you can either
send them a personality quiz, or……..( to take the faster, cheaper and in my
view more scientifically accurate approach) you can ask them which faerie they
choose on Faerie Cloud Racers!!!! If anyone asks a possible future neofriend
this question and gets a reply, feel free to neomail me for a full guideline
on the friendship you can expect! I am always more then willing to provide detailed
character analyses on unsuspecting hopefuls of yours! (Here is an example; if
they choose the space faerie; you’re in for a wild ride!)
