Neopia's Twenty Toughest Trophies
GAMES ROOM — Everyone loves trophies; those gold, silver, and bronze figures on
our user lookups that proudly tell everyone how great you are. Neopians from all
over compete to get on the top of the high score tables and earn trophies to display.
Many of us even collect them, trying to fill our page with every trophy in Neopia.
Not all trophies are equal, however, as many are harder to come by than others.
For example, just about anybody can get a Cheat trophy, or a Snow Wars runner-up
medal. After all, all you need to do is beat a couple easy computer opponents;
not compete against everyone else in Neopia for the high score like most trophies
But what are the rarest, most difficult trophies to obtain? The ones that are
the crown jewel of a trophy collection, that many Neopians rarely ever see?
Well, here are twenty of the most difficult non-retired trophies available.
20. Meerca Chase II: The only action game trophy in this list, and for good
reason — just about everyone plays the game. And, like most of these rare trophies,
getting it is, in large part, luck. If you get stuck with low scoring neggs,
you aren’t going to get a score high enough for a trophy no matter how well
you play. It can take a long time to get a game with a high enough score to
pick up the trophy.
19-18. Mystery Pic and Lenny Conundrum: It isn’t enough just to come up with
the right answer; oh no, that would be too easy, especially given how the answers
typically get leaked on the NeoBoards. So to get a trophy, you need to be one
of the first 250 to submit a correct answer. You’ll usually need to be available
when the contest updates in order to stand a chance, unless it happens to be
one of the Lenny Conundrums where there’s no real way to figure out the exact
answer and everyone just has to make an educated guess — those often have less
than 250 winners throughout the whole week.
17. Shapeshifter: This is a very hard puzzle game. The rules are not complicated,
but it takes a lot of practice and the ability to think far ahead about what
you‘re doing. Many players have enough trouble making it through level 10, but
you’ll usually need to get to 30 or higher to make the cut for a trophy.
16-15. NeoQuest and NeoQuest II: The mega-popular RPGs award trophies when
you complete them. It’s no easy task, though, and requires a lot of time and
14-13. Tax Beast and Sloth’s Invasion Tax: These trophies hinge entirely on
you getting a random event in which many of your hard earned Neopoints are taken
away. And even when you do get the random event, you have to be robbed of enough
NP to make the high score list. If you really want these trophies, all you can
do is keep millions of NP in your pocket and wait.
12. Dice-A-Roo: One of the most popular games, Dice-A-Roo’s trophy is hard
to get because you need to win the jackpot — and not just any jackpot, but one
of the largest ones to make the top of the high score list. As if that’s not
enough, you’ll need to get lucky enough to hit the x10 jackpot multiplier, as
11-8. NeggSweeper Cumulative, Pyramids, Sakhmet Solitaire, and Scarab 21 Cumulative:
The games themselves aren’t hard; it’s the massive time and effort needed to
accumulate the millions of points necessary that makes these trophies so elusive.
Racking up 6 million points worth of NeggSweeper wins, a few hundred points
at a time, for a single trophy is simply not something most people are willing
to do; and the same goes for Pyramids, Sakhmet Solitaire, and Scarab 21 as well.
7. Double or Nothing: You’ll typically need to flip heads at least 8 times
in a row to make the trophy range, and you’ll also need the guts to keep risking
it instead of taking the NP while you’re ahead.
6. Grarrl Keno: The odds of matching enough numbers to hit it big are slim.
You can expect to lose a lot of NP on this game before you have a lucky enough
round to get yourself the trophy.
5. NeoQuest II Race: This trophy is extra difficult to get, because not only
do you have to put in the time and effort to complete NeoQuest II, but you have
to have one of the 10 fastest times for your difficulty setting. You’ll have
to play exceptionally well to beat the times that are already posted.
4. Test Your Strength: Like many of the trophies on this list, getting it is
pure luck... and being allowed only one opportunity every six hours, you can’t
do much to get the trophy besides to pay up and hope for the best.
3-2. Neoboard Avatar Collector and Stamp Collector: Both of these trophies
can be very expensive to get. Items always shoot up in value when an avatar
that uses it comes out, and there are lots of rare stamps out there that cost
hundreds of thousands or even millions of NP. Unless you’re super rich (possibly
from winning the Test Your Strength jackpot and getting that trophy), you shouldn’t
expect to get the Stamp Collector trophy.
1. The Neopian Lottery. The ultimate luck game. It’s so simple... just pick
six numbers from 1 to 30 and hope you match more of the winning numbers than
anyone else. All you need for a trophy is to win... but that’s easier said than
done. The chances of matching all six numbers are nearly 600,000 to one, and
while five or four numbers matched gives you a good shot, it’s no guarantee
that you‘ll win.
There you have it, twenty rare trophies to be on the lookout for. Next time
you see someone with a huge trophy collection, take a look and see how many
of these they have.
