Is Turdle Racing Worth It? A Statistical Analysis
Turdle Racing (TR) in Meridell, the considerably smellier cousin of Poogle Racing, seems to be often overlooked - probably because unlike its Faerieland counterpart, it doesn't have an avatar to its name. However, its lack of glamour doesn’t mean it isn’t worthy of recognition! I myself came across it while investigating older parts of the sites, in an attempt to find new dailies or games that could be profitable. Many of the older games on the website were designed to bring Neopoints into the economy, when the site was just starting up (see also: Stock market, Food Club). I theorise that since TR is a very old game that has not been updated, it is possible to play in such a way that you can consistently make a profit by playing it. This investigation aimed to determine whether or not this is true by analysing the results of 441 Turdle races which I played over about 5 months.
Please note that, in this article, “profit” generally refers to “profit on average” or “profit in the long run”. This is a luck based game, so it isn’t about what might happen for each individual game. Rather, we are theorising about general trends.
Jimmy heaved out a breath, his red paws aching just a little from having climbed the path leading up the temple. He usually prized himself for his stamina, but after his journey, he assumed it was only natural to feel an ache. The long, winding paths were unlike the forests of Mystery Island, where he had lived with other Kougras of his kind. And, back home, there definitely hadn't been any bridges to cross, hanging high above an abyss.

An intoxicating aroma hung freely in the air and settled around the whole field going whichever way the wind happened to blow. Hues of every shade could be seen in this field flowers and blossoms blooming everywhere. Petals traveled with the wind and floated softly in the air. Trees towered over, and sunlight beamed through the emerald leaves of the trees casting a transcendent glow to the ground. Vines curled and twisted with the trees, they wrapped around every branch each bursting with blossoms. A once golden gate, now taken over by time stood and appeared to be one with the vines.

Let the trumpets sound and flags raise high, as the annual festival in celebration of the Discovery of Meridell makes its annual appearance.

|Actant's Book Reviews|
Hey there NT, my name is Actant and I have read a lot of the books Neopia has to offer. Plenty of pets have come to me asking for recommendations for their next hot summer reads. So I decided to write an article highlighting some of my personal favorites.

It was probably early in the morning, around five-o-clock or so, when I, a Blue Lupe, woke up to the sound of someone loudly banging our front door. I was definitely irritated by it, but I got up as it was not something that I could easily ignore.
|The Big Move:Part Four|
I was excited for this kind of day. I loved visiting my cousins but my favorite cousins were in Roo Island. Ever since Roo Island went through a huge reconstruction to attract more tourists, it’s been a lot more fun to visit and the cousins who lived there were as exciting as the island itself. I would’ve been fine with any family of cousins to visit but I’m happy it was these guys.
