    *******************NEOPET HELPFUL HINTS GUIDE**************************
    Hey all you neo-holics and neo-newbie's out there. Are you ready for a 
    guide that will literally knock you socks off in helpful hints and 
    secrets? Good, all that you need to know to get you started and keep 
    you going is below. I will let you know that not EVERY secret is in 
    here, this guide is just enough to help you get along in Neopets. Also 
    this guide will be updated most of the time due to Neopets updating and 
    changing things around their site. I will do my very best to be as 
    updated as possible and being able to help guide you through this world 
    of Neopets.
    I have written this many times before and when I first started it, I 
    don't remember, so I cannot put the original date of when I started 
    this and will leave it as Version 1.0 until something new appears. 
    Everything below is what I use to help me get along through Neopets.com
    If you find that you have a different strategy the helps or works out 
    better for you, that's fine. If you wish to share these strategies, 
    that's fine as well. I welcome anyone else's helpful hints and 
    strategies to add to the guide. All contact information is posted below 
    in the CREDITS part of the guide. Thank you.

    All information had been collected by studying Neopets.com and had been 
    created to help others who are in need of some helpful hints and ideas 
    as they go along.  This FAQ is made for those of all ages and are 
    welcome to send to others but please note that I ask you to do not

    This help guide had been created for the benefit of helping others and 
    not made to give you credit for work you haven't researched. So I ask 
    again, please do not duplicate. Thank you.
    I wanted to add a little something before you begin to read this little 
    helpful guide to getting your way through Neopets.com.  My guide is put 
    together in the best and simplest way to read and understand. The 
    BASICS section is mainly for beginners or for those who don't know 
    about ways of keeping track of money, making some interest and kind of 
    guiding you to new and better ways to navigate yourself through 
    Neopets.com. The DAILY BASIS portion of this section is places that you 
    may find items such as stores or other places around the site. The 
    GAMES section is a divided into best ways of making money, some are 
    very easy and some can be difficult but all in all, great ways to make 
    money. The MISCELLANIOUS OPTIONS of many games around Neopets.com that 
    could be played for various amounts of reasons and had no specific 
    placements for any of the other sections named above.
    I hope that for any who read this NEOPET HELPFUL HINTS GUIDE that it 
    proves to be very useful on your journey ahead. All below are things 
    that you can do on a day to day basis to help your Neopets become 
    stronger, more intelligent, gain food for when they get hungry, 
    neopoints and much more. 
    Good luck on your journey ahead and thank you for using the NEOPET 
    HELPFUL HINTS GUIDE. Let the journey begin and I wish all the best for 
    Do you want neofriends? Or friends who want to become a part of neopets 
    and wish to become your neofriend? If you need help adding friends so 
    you can neomail faster or so you can make friends, send items or get 
    items from your neofriends; Go to your neomail box and go to 
    neofriends. It will ask at the bottom if you wish to add someone. Type 
    in the person's name and it will add someone to your neofriends list. 
    But as you'll see it's that the person will not be added unless they 
    decide to become your neofriend by accepting your offer. If they accept 
    your offer then you can neomail them (especially good if you don't have 
    an actual e-mail but only good for neopets) and send items to them as 
    well of them sending the same to you.
    For any that are interested, if you collect a lot of neopoints or even 
    if you don't have much to spare, having a bank account is always good. 
    You can start collecting as soon as you join neopets! The start off at 
    best is at least 20 neopoints and work your way up. The first bank 
    account you should have is a Junior Saver account and then you can earn 
    your interest from it every single day. It will be one of the factors 
    in how your money accumulates. You don't want to be carrying around 
    thousands of Neopoints a time, for various reasons. It can be stolen by 
    those mean creatures in random events; you will tend to spend more if 
    it's readily available to you rather then gaining its interest and 
    keeping it safe within the bank. When you are first starting out, set 
    aside a daily limit of how much you will spend. Now make sure your 
    profit is always higher then your expenses, even if it's only by a few 
    Shop Wizard:
    The Shop Wizard will be helpful in aiding you to find anything that you 
    need to find at the cheapest prices available at any shop Neopets.com! 
    Sometimes it will often be a little screwy and not look up the item 
    you're looking for, show a different item than from the one you're 
    looking for, or be at too high of a price than you expected and know it 
    can be lower. But with a little patience, you'll eventually get what 
    you are looking for. The best way to use the Shop Wizard is to go to 
    the Search Items bar and select "Identical to my phrase".
    Money Tree:
    This place is great to find all the items you need from people who 
    donate them! It's not going to always be filled with everything you 
    want but there are a few times when you could come across a faerie or 
    something really rare! But in order to get these items that you want, 
    you have to be quick! These items donate fast and go fast. So the money 
    tree can be very frustrating if you find that you can never get 
    anything from it. All you need is patience.
    If you find you have too much in your inventory, stuff you don't want 
    (junk) then just auction your items! This is especially good if you 
    have rare items since you can sell them for decent prices and earn 
    whatever you can from them.
    Trade is sort of the same thing as auctioning but you wait for someone 
    to offer you a bid on the items or other such that you're offering to 
    sell. You may get many bids or you may not get any at all. It's sort of 
    a win/lose situation. When you have someone that offers a bid on your 
    item(s) choose the bids you want or think is fair in what you're 
    looking for. This is a good way to get neopoints, rare items, items, 
    food and to get rid of unwanted junk that could be another treasure. 
    Just remember to not over-price your items. Under-pricing them is fine 
    if you feel the need to but to over-price your items will result in 
    probably no one wanting to trade with you.
    If you don't feel like trading or auctioning or you've found yourself 
    to be in a situation that no one seems to want to buy your items, then 
    try opening up a shop! It's not so hard to keep it up and it's another 
    great way to earn neopoints! So if you have enough neopoints and items 
    to go around, opening a shop isn't such a bad idea.
    Here at Neopets.com they also have Neostocks. If you like the stocks 
    and want to give it a try, Neopets.com is the perfect place to try it 
    out. It's really easy to keep up and you can make neopoints easily 
    doing so! Give it a try, it's not so bad!
    Here at Neopets, your pets can be trained to be deadly beasts or not 
    trained at all and be something else. Many though choose to train their 
    neopets and its fun. But this can be costly. Depending on the armor, 
    healing items, food and so on, this can really add up. Also, in order 
    to train your neopets, it's best to take them to training school. 
    Training schools will want you to pay them with Codestones or Dubloons. 
    When you go to level up your pets whether it be from: Levels, Strength, 
    Defense, or Move (its speed) be careful. You don't want to have one 
    level too much higher from the others. It will then cost you more to 
    level that pet in that certain area. So try to keep all your levels 
    ***************************DAILY BASIS*********************************
    The Soup Kitchen
    Location: Main Page, Red Apple (Feed Pet), The Soup Kitchen
    Limit: Infinite
    If you're a beginner at Neopets.com, then the soup kitchen will be good 
    for you! Also, if you're very low on neopoints (2000 and less) and your 
    pet is very hungry or dying, this will benefit you as well. Here you 
    can nurse your hungered pet till its fill.
    Giant Omelet
    Location: Tyrannia, the Plateau, Giant Omelets
    Limit: Once per day
    At Tyrannia, you can receive a free giant omelet for your Neopet. Just 
    head to Tyrannia and click on the sign that says Giant Omelets and it 
    will ask if you wish to take a slice. I'm sure you know what to do from 
    there. At times you won't get as lucky as others have already taken the 
    omelets. No worries, in no time they'll have another one all ready for 
    you to take a slice of. Now with this treat, you cannot be greedy and 
    are only allowed to one free omelet per day.
    The Snowager
    Location: Terror Mountains, Ice Caves, the Snowager
    Limit: Unsure
    The Snowager will offer free items to you only and if only he's 
    sleeping. Just click on the sign and hopefully if you're lucky you'll 
    find him sleeping. If he's not sleeping then you'll have to leave and 
    wait till another day when he's sleeping. He can also wake up if you 
    try to take an item as well. If you're lucky enough to snatch an item 
    before he wakes up, good for you! Below are the times that the Snowager 
    sleeps. Good luck!
    Coltzan Shrine
    Location: Lost Desert, Coltzan's Shrine
    Limit: Once per day
    Here located is the sacred Coltzan Shrine. If your neopet steps up to 
    the shrine and decides to go further on, it might be granted with a 
    gift! It could be anything, it's worth a try but you can only do this 
    once per day!
    Healing spring
    Location: Faerieland, Healing Springs
    Limit: Once every hour or two
    If you find that your pet is injured in anyway from the Battledome or 
    from any other kind of incident, come to the healing springs. The air 
    faerie will assist you in healing your neopet back to health. She can 
    only help you around every hour or so, so don't keep coming back to her 
    for as she helps you once, she needs time to regenerate her magic to 
    help you again.
    Potato Counter
    Location: Meridell, Potato Counter
    Limit: Three times per day
    Meridell, it's one of the newest places here at Neopets.com. Here there 
    is a pretty easy game that you can play for easy Neopoints. Here all 
    you have to do is count the potatoes in a certain amount of time! It's 
    pretty easy. I really can't remember the times that state how much you 
    get in a certain time period. But if you count the potatoes correctly 
    and in fast timing, you can get an easy 50 neopoints in now time.
    Extreme Herder
    Location: Games, Puzzles, Extreme Herder
    Limit: Three times per day
    This is an extremely good game to play if you're really down on 
    neopoints. All you have to do is save the little animals from the dog 
    that wishes to eat them and you! If you manage to make it at least to 
    the 12th level, you'll have an easy 500 neopoints made. What do you 
    think about that?
    Meerca Chase	
    Location: Games, Puzzles, Meerca Chase
    Limit: Three times per day
    In this game, the Meerca has to get as many happiness neggs as possible 
    without running into the red neggs, into itself or into walls. For each 
    level that you progress to, you'll earn more neopoints with each negg 
    that you get. This is another good game to rack up the neopoints in. 
    There is an easy, medium and hard level and with each one, you'll go up 
    5 points in watch you catch during the game. If you wish to try Extreme 
    mode, then click on the top right corner and click start. But be 
    warned, it's VERY FAST!
    Kacheek Seek
    Location: Games, Luck/Chance, Kacheek Seek
    Limit: Unlimited
    This game is really very easy! Basically a game of hide and seek game 
    you play with your neopets. It's really fun and as I've mentioned 
    before, really easy. There are many different types of places that you 
    can choose from and you can play them all and still make neopoints. 
    Each phase will earn you a certain amount of neopoints. You can play 
    each round as many times as you want or at least until your neopet gets 
    angry with you and begs you to play another game. 
    Techo Says
    Location: Games, Puzzles, Techo Says
    Limit: Three times per day
    This is another rather easy game if you have a good memory! During this 
    game, you'll have to correctly guess the way Techo arranges the order 
    of how the neopets pop up from the holes. The higher you go the more 
    neopoints you get!
    Kiko Match II
    Location: Games, Puzzles, Kiko Match II
    Limit: Three times per day
    Kiko Match II is another guessing game that requires you to find the 
    matching cards in the decks lain out for you. At first, it's very 
    simple as you're only given four cards. But then as you progress, the 
    number of cards increase and the matching becomes more difficult.
    Guess the Card
    Location: Games Chance, Luck/, Guess the Card
    Limit: Unlimited
    This game is rather easy but then again it can be a bit frustrating. It 
    will cost you 50 neopoints to play. In order to get neopoints for this 
    game, your neopet has to guess the card that you picked from the cards 
    laid out for you. If it guesses correctly, then you're offered 50 
    neopoints! Good luck!
    Kiss the Mortog
    Location: Games, Luck/Chance, Kiss the Mortog
    Limit: Unlimited
    This is basically like Guess the Card except you have to choose between 
    two frogs on which to kiss. If you kiss the right frog, you will earn 
    your neopoints. If you kiss the wrong one, then you lose and will have 
    to start all over again. Another bad side effect of this is that it 
    will cost you 50neopoints to play.
    Location: Games, Puzzles, Destruct-O-Match
    Limit: Three times per day
    Have you ever played Gem Drop or perhaps how about Tetris? Well it's 
    more like Gem Drop and like Tetris but backwards. In this game, you 
    have to blow up the blocks that are in rows, try to get as many in a 
    row as possible for more points. There are only 4 matches to this game 
    but it proves to be a bit difficult to beat all four levels. But either 
    way, you shall still get a hefty amount of neopoints just for playing.
    Location: Games, Action, Meribal
    Limit: Three times per day
    Meribal is a fun new game added to Neopets on September 17th, 2002. It's 
    a good game to play for neopoints but you have to quick as you go onto 
    new levels. 
    Poogle Solitaire
    Location: Games, Puzzles, Poogle Solitaire
    Limit: Once per day
    This is a pretty awesome game for winning neopoints but it's not very 
    easy to beat. If you can figure out the correct combo to get one Poogle 
    remaining in the center you can win up to 750 NP's a day. If you play 
    this daily for a week and set aside the points you get into your bank 
    account, you will have accumulated 5250 NP in a week. Sometimes you get 
    a poogle toy for your pet to play with and in some cases your pet's 
    intelligence can increase. Here are the times below.
    1 Poogle remaining in Center - 750 neopoints
    1 Poogle remaining (not in Center - 500 neopoints
    2 Poogles remaining - 400 neopoints
    3 Poogles remaining - 300 neopoints
    4 Poogles remaining - 200 neopoints
    5 Poogles remaining - 100 neopoints
    6 Poogles remaining - 50 neopoints
    Faerie Crossword Puzzle
    Location: Games, Puzzles, Faerie Crossword Puzzle
    Limit: Unlimited
    This is your basic crossword puzzle with it has a Neopian twist. The 
    answers are words and places from Neopia. The payouts vary by what time 
    you complete it in. It's not very easy if you don't know Neopia very 
    well but if you do, it pays well. You can only play once to get 
    rewarded, you can play as many times as you want after that but you 
    will not be rewarded for it. Here below is how much you will be 
    rewarded within the times that you finish the game.
    (Note: Neopoints reward table you can only win neopoints once per day!)
    Solve puzzle in less than 5 minutes 600 neopoints 
    Solve puzzle in less than 15 minutes 400 neopoints 
    Solve puzzle in more than 15 minutes 200 neopoints 
    If you were to solve the crossword in 5 minutes or less you get 600 
    Located: Games, Puzzles, Cliffhanger
    Limit: Keep playing until you win 1500 then play for free
    The best game to play to get a pet smarter is cliffhanger. The cost of 
    the game is 15 neopoints. The object of the game is basically hangman. 
    You have to pick the letters out of the word box and hope that they are 
    part of the solution that you have to answer. If you choose a letter 
    that is not in one of the words in the puzzle, then you will move one 
    step closer to the cliff ahead. Depending on the level you pick, it 
    will be harder and harder to answer the solution. If you feel you know 
    the answer, then place your answer into answer box but beware if you're 
    wrong for you will automatically fall off the cliff and lose.
    Fruit Machine
    Location: Lost Desert, Fruit Machine
    Limit: Once per day
    Here you can spin the Fruit Machine wheel and see if you're able to 
    receive anything. It's kind of like slots, if you get the right 
    combination, you win! If not, you lose. The best part though about this 
    one is that it costs nothing! Every day you can get one free spin, if 
    the first two fruits match you win a prize. If all three fruits match 
    you win a really big prize!
    Wheel of Excitement
    Location: Faerieland, Wheel of Excitement
    Limit: Once every two hours
    This is a nifty little game you can play on chance. It will though and 
    however cost you 100np to play. I know it's a bit harsh, considering 
    your chances aren't always good but if you have money to burn, go for 
    it. On the wheel you could win a random amount of items, neopoints, 
    food and etc.
    Wheel of Mediocrity
    Location: Tyrannia, Wheel of Mediocrity
    Limit: Unlimited
    This is pretty much the same thing as the Wheel of Excitement in 
    Faerieland except for one tiny thing, it's cheaper to spin. It will 
    only cost you 50 neopoints to spin. So like I said, if you have 
    neopoints to burn, go for it! But do be careful, the consequences of 
    getting a bad spin will bring nasty results.
    Location: Mystery Island, Tombola
    Limit: Once per day
    Tombola is a net little game that you can play. All you do is place 
    your hand into the Tombola thingy and pull out number. Each number will 
    offer you certain items, food, neopoints and more!
    ************************MISCELLANIOUS OPTIONS**************************
    Random Events
    Can happen at any given time
    Random events can happen at any given time. They can do you good and 
    sometimes they can do you more harm then good. It all depends. How to 
    calculate when you'll get one is nearly impossible. Some thing that you 
    could do in helping yourself to getting more random events are having 
    items that you don't need and donating them.  Each world has its own 
    random events, as to what happens exactly. No one will ever know.
    Petpets are pets for your neopets. They are so very easy to take care 
    of as well. You don't have to feed them or play games with them to make 
    them happy. But there are ways you can level them up and when strong 
    enough, they can be of great assistance when they join you in the 
    Punchbag Bob Tips
    Location: Main Page, Items, Battledome
    Punchbag Bob takes forever right? Well if you click on the "Go" button 
    and then keep on clicking on it and then his hit points will go down 
    really fast!!!!! And then once he's beaten once you get a trophy. Nice 
    Faerie Quests
    Can happen at any given time
    You can find and do faerie quests at different lands or they'll come to 
    you by random events. You can choose to do these if you want but it's 
    always best to complete them. At times, it can be costly but it can 
    also be worth it!
    If and only if you're interested, there are proggies out there in 
    getting items, neopoints, rare items, items and other such things. 
    These are of course illegal at Neopets.com and if you're caught, your 
    account can be frozen! But some take the chance and this is just an
