They Are Just Colors, Aren’t They?

Hello everyone! This is Clonez, administrator of skydays147.wordpress.com. The sports party has returned once again to Club Penguin. If you do not remember, in November 2007, there was a poll on which party penguins would like to see come back. The choices had been Western, Sports, or Pirate. The battle between Western and Sports went on for days, and it was very close to a tie, if you do not remember. Well, it was a great idea that everyone had chosen western, because this party would have never happened if Sports Theme had won. Also, it fits perfectly in August because of the Summer Olympics! What better way to get into the mood for sports. I haven’t heard that many complaints about this party from older penguins even though Club Penguin brought back two of the rarest items of all.

I don’t understand why Club Penguin had to choose red and blue. Especially since the party came back a second time. It should have been like the color party of November 2006 where green and purple were fighting. It would be pretty nice having another of color face paint. Then again, a lot of items in the past have come back in another color. Especially the nonmember items. Who couldn’t forget the latest “incident” of this: the return of the pirate shoes. Anyway, it wouldn’t hurt Club Penguin to be a little more creative. On the other hand, they did create a new item for nonmembers: the gold medal. This was in the group of items that had to be earned; that you had to work for, such as the scavenger hunts in the past. There were three events at this party. Gosh, I was surprised to see that the Night Club took a break from this party, for it had not been decorated at all. I do not remember a time where it hasn’t. Anyway, the three events are quite original, two of them are running events and one of them is a water event. I like how Club Penguin made each one with lighted knobs sticking out of the ground. The main reason is basically because they didn’t want penguins to cheat and go off track.

The marathon is a perfect example of that; there are a lot of twists and turns. I know they are hard to light up, but it is easy to get the hang of. The marathon is a nightmare if you have horrible internet connection, so it is basically the “most connected” who wins. It goes through almost every outdoor room, but other than the track, the decorations are awful. Sure, they just set up a few chairs and a couple of drink stations; I think it could have improved. By the time the penguin reaches the cove, the track is very sloppy. It narrows down, it curves a lot, and it is puzzling in a way. If I were them, I would have just disposed of the campfire for this party.

The second event is the 3 Lap Race. By far, this is the funniest one to watch. If there is a big group of penguins, many forty or fifty, it looks like one of those roller blade rinks from the 70’s. This event is pretty easy to finish; it does not require an advancement of internet connection like the last one, plus it is a lot more fun to race with buddies because you are perpendicular to each other at all times. One problem with this track is that it looks like a soggy old bath mat. I guess it is just Club Penguin’s “style” of creating a track, but I could be wrong.

The third and final event is kind of cheesy. I mean, its swimming, but it isn’t really swimming because penguins are just walking through water; it is like the pool isn’t even there. Plus it is just going is circles. I mean, swimming is fun in real life, but it doesn’t belong in a place like this. Don’t get me wrong though, I know Club Penguin was trying really hard to make it as realistic as possible for us, but this is just too upsetting. I really wouldn’t call it fun like the other races, but if you need to do it to get the medal, then go ahead and do it.


Once again, there was another new room added to the party; limited edition.This time the room is soccer and it is for members only. Club Penguin has gotten into a phase, and I am not saying that the phase is bad, but it is an improvement. Almost every party since the Medieval party in May has had a special room added on to it. Hopefully, this will continue to go on. I was surprised how many member rooms have been sprouting recently. One party back: there VIP room was a members only building. Nonmembers were left out on a limited edition item: the Penguin Band background, which became the first ever member background. The good thing about this party was that they eased off a bit, there wasn’t a free item this time. Hopefully, these party opportunities for members will disappear soon, or the nonmember population will fall back.

Medieval Success!

Hello everyone! This is Clonez, administrator of skydays147. wordpress. com. I just want to start off by saying that there is only one word to fully describe this party: WOW! Well, that may not be the only one, but as you can tell from my enthusiasm, I was very impressed with the fine job that Club Penguin has done with this party. Before the party came out, I had just read the newspaper and I thought to myself that this would be a cheap knock-off of the Christmas Party (which was based in the same time period). To my astonishment, Club Penguin really took this party seriously! Not only are almost all of the rooms decorated, there is also a new room just for the party which is located above the forest. I have to comment on some of the amazingly decorated rooms. First, I have to comment just on the entire underground. The entire cave was turned into a dragon’s lair. As shown in the picture above, there is an entire room filled with gold, goblets, and gallons of jems. A lot of the rooms in this party were based on what we consider when thinking of the medieval ages. Of course, most of these are stereotypes such as the peasent uniform being free to all, but they sure make the party a lot more fun. Of course every medieval storybook has a dark evil castle. What was ingenious was that Club Penguin made it so that the evil castle is visible from other rooms, as if it were lurking around. When up close, the “castle” has a sort of face made by blinds of windows and the shape on the door. Another storybook tale we know and love was used in Club Penguin: the knights of the round table. Of course, Club Penguin had to “kiddy-size” it so that only (8 maybe…?) a few could sit down. The table was put in replacement of the Pizza Parlor. Gosh, there are way too many rooms to list that have been such a surprise. Make sure you visit this party, because it is seriously not one you want to miss!

I really have to say something honest about this party. This may be one of the best parties in Club Penguin history. Please, I am not lieing when I am saying this. I do not comment like all of the other Club Penguin websites about parties and say “oh my! This party is the best one yet!” or “Wow! This is the coolest one I’ve seen so far!” I hate when people do that. Honestly, I want to tell you that good commentaries don’t always say the most amazing things. Back to the party: I might put this one as the 2nd best party in Club Penguin history, behind the Fall Fair in first because it truly deserves to be on the list.

“I hope you’re all enjoying one of the biggest parties in Club Penguin history!  We had a ton of fun looking through all of your ideas to make sure this party was the best it could be!” -http://community.clubpenguin.com/blog/
