A retired item, site feature, game, or pet is something that won't be available again or obtained through normal means. When a retired item shows up in Check Price, it will say "Retired" in red text. The retiring items will be on display at the Retirement Planning in Puchalla Village. As we mentioned in the past, having over 22,500 of our 59,000 items retired (with their supply shrinking each day) isn't sustainable or fun. When we first started over fifteen years ago, retiring items forever seemed like a good idea because no thought was given then for a decade and a half into the future! Items will still continue to retire but its meaning has changed several times over the years. One thing that hasn't changed though is that once an item retires, it will never be re-released to be easier, cheaper or more readily available than when the item was first introduced! For more information, check out the Marapets Archives.
News description (c. 16 July 2015): We have updated the Pet Colours so that every pet now says where it comes from and also removed the "retired" label had been removed on all limited edition/restricted pets. In the past, we had made the mistake of retiring pets for good. This was guaranteed, but with transformations, goals, etc, since then it makes no sense because it's confusing to 'retire' a pet that's still available in the Potions Shop, Plushie Machines, and Transmogrification Temple. Instead of having a retired label, AU pets have a date they were last released and a date that they will be released next. The original plan of retiring certain pets forever was to make them rarer, but it instead made them less popular and received fewer new pet colours. We hope you understand why this was changed and approve of the changes.
The following pets shown in this gallery have the location and retirement date below their pictures.
You Can No Longer Create Ushundas
9th October 2016
As of this date, The Ushunda can no longer be created. It is now a Limited Edition pet that is available from the game Sewer Struggle in the City Sewers. All Ushunda Potions have been retired from the Potion Shop. Plushie Machine and Operations Portal remain unchanged, however, the odds will change now that it is listed as LE pets.
There is a trend of Marapets re-releasing old costumes to either revamp them or turn them into a completely new one. For Account Upgrades, some revamped costumes retire sooner than normal (usually 2 weeks). This trend first emerged in 2012 when the Underwater AU was re-released but wouldn't go into full swing until 2015 when the Killer pets were revamped.
Credit goes to the Wayback Machine for these old pictures you're going to see below.
R.I.P. SKINNY COSTUME
18th July 2015The Skinny Costume was a costume that was sold at the Costumes Shop but was so old that Ian retired it. Skinny pets were scrawny, burgundy and orange; the costume shows its size as 0. This was considered the polar opposite to the Fat Costume until it got replaced by the Pampered Costume as a mission prize from Beast in the Woods in Foxfire Forest with the limited edition Astro pet available. Any skinny pets, potions, and photos Marapets users had automatically converted over to pampered pets. The "Skinny" Hidden Avatar will stay the same but it will require a pampered pet instead to get it.
News Description (c. 27 August 2007): Ever wondered what pets live in Lowlyhood? Well, it's Skinny Pets of course! Everyone knows that nobody in Lowlyhood eats! This new Skinny Costume is now restocking.
On the original News page, the three original Skinny pets were replaced with Pampered pets.
R.I.P. KAMILAH COSTUME
12th May 2016The Kamilah Costume was a costume that was first released in July 2010 in Account Upgrades. Kamilah pets were mostly influenced by Indian culture. They had been retired and forgotten about ever since, so it was re-released as the Desert Costume.
R.I.P. PILGRIM COSTUME
24th November 2016The Pilgrim Costume was a costume that first released in November 2010 in Account Upgrades with the new Thanksgiving pet Gobble. Pilgrim pets were beige and wore the clothes that British people wore during the 17th century. The costume had been retired and neglected ever since because the staff do not commonly celebrate the holiday and was eventually turned into the Doll Costume.
R.I.P. GEEK COSTUME
12th January 2017The Geek Costume was a costume that was first released in September 2008 in Account Upgrades. Geek pets were red with brown hair, glasses, an aqua shirt with a tie, a bucktooth, and green and yellow-striped pants. They were derived from the school geeks. They have been retired and neglected ever since because this costume was too similar to the School Costume revamp, so there was no point in having two similar costumes. As expected, it was never popular and the revamp has put all Geek costumed pets into the Fancy Costume.
There are some Maradans who liked the goofy Geek pets:
R.I.P. VORTEX COSTUME
21st May 2017The Vortex Costume was a costume that was first released in January 2009 in Account Upgrades. Vortex pets wore a green and yellow costume with gloves. They would also have green features as well (the feathers and beak on Vortex Gobble) and their body in a spiral. They are influenced by the vortex that wrecked Vortex Park. They have been updated and renamed as the Tornado Costume.
R.I.P. HERO COSTUME
1st November 2017The Hero Costume was a costume that was first released in November 2009 in Account Upgrades. It was based on either the Incredible Hulk or a bodybuilder; Hero pets were brown and tan and wore light blue pants. They were neglected ever since because the costume was never popular, unlike the source material, and thus all Hero pets were put into the Strobe Costume.
R.I.P. PUCHALLA COSTUME
2nd November 2017The Puchalla Costume was a costume that was based on country bumpkins. Puchalla pets were brown with a straw hat, bad teeth, and blue overalls, reflecting the look of the Bumpkin in Puchalla Village. Because it was old, unloved and ignored, however, the costume was replaced with the Defective Costume.
R.I.P. TRAILER COSTUME
30th November 2017The Trailer Costume was a costume that was based on the people that hang around in trailers [in Vortex Park], depicted as wearing tank tops and denim shorts, holding Green Soda cans. Trailer pets were brown and olive. The costume was replaced with a new Galaxy Costume - with all 77 pets being able to wear it - because of the fact that the soda cans bear a slight resemblance to beer cans.
R.I.P. FURRY COSTUME
18th December 2017The Furry Costume was a costume that made pets cream and yellow-colored with messy fur over their eyes and growing in other places. It has been replaced with a new Dalmatian Costume as it was very old and too similar to the newer Hairy Costume.
In our Furry Costume article, we said this: The Furry Costume is a costume available through Item Trades, the Item Auction House, Shop Search, etc. Fortunately for sellers (and unfortunately for buyers), this item falls between the 400,000-600,000MP mark, which is a decent amount of money, but not great.
Even though this item is quite old, Ian has still not made the item Retired.
R.I.P. EXPLORER COSTUME
3rd June 2018The Explorer Costume was a costume that originated from the July 2008 Account Upgrades, along with the Light Fairy Costume. And with both Account Upgrades, you would receive 7 random pieces of the Simerian Explorer Treasure Map. Putting this costume on certain marapets will make them resemble the Simerian Explorer himself. Explorer pets had a beige hat with spectacles, a scarf, goggles, suit, and black shoes. Sadly, the costume has been retired and neglected ever since, so it was changed to the Safari Costume.
R.I.P. MENTAL COSTUME
18th-22nd July 2019The Mental Costume was a costume that was succeeded by the Staff Costume. Its place of origin was the Knutt House, which was fitting as those Knutts were mentally insane, performing acts such as cannibalism and joining the Adult Forums. Heck, others had their food provided to them through a tube! Ian decided that almost a decade after the quest's inception, it was time to remove most allusions to what happens in mental institutions (including renaming the costume). The Staff Knutt has been revamped. This change was due many years ago but other costumes were on the revamp list first! The rest of the staff pets will be revamped shortly and more pets will soon be able to wear this costume.
Retired Locations, Shops, and Site Features
12th November 2009Marauploads was the Marapets free image hosting service. It was available to anyone who had a Marapets account to host images for their marasites or forum siggies. The service proved to be more than Marapets could handle, and due to so many image hosting services available, it became obsolete.
Marauploads wasn't perfect either, the system was more problematic than it was worth. Sometimes it would be down, sometimes it wouldn't work properly. Later, and after about 4 years of existence on the 13th of November of 2009 Ian announced in the News, these words:
"RIP Marauploads - The FREE Marapets Image Uploads Service has been discontinued. Marapets simply outgrew the service, it became too expensive and unsustainable for us to provide a reliable and free image upload service to the number of players we have. We will be making changes to the site soon, allowing you to use images from other sites. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused, but it will give us more revenue and time to spend elsewhere on the site!"
R.I.P. DOLL MAKER
2nd February 2012
The Doll Maker was replaced with the Change Gender feature.
R.I.P. PROMOTE MARAPETS
20th August 2012
Marapets listened to your feedback and complaints about the difficulty some of you have with the Referral System. There were 2 big changes. First, the old, closed Promote Marapets feature has been closed and removed for good now. The prizes are now restocking at the Smuggler.
The second change is that you can now receive referrals by bringing back Old Players to Marapets, as well as bringing in new players. You can use the same referral URL and send it to anyone you know that used to play Marapets and haven't logged in for more than a month. They will need to login and show some kind of activity. We cannot reveal too much information about what counts as a new or old player referred but staff manually process referrals and use all information we have available. It can take up to 14 days for a referral to be processed and you will not know if it has been rejected.
Promote Marapets was the quickest, easiest and most rewarding way of getting prizes and also helping Marapets at the same time. You were NOT rewarded per new member that joins, but for the different sites, you place our code on! Some of the prizes that you can only get from this are...
How did it work? Well, you selected one of the Promote Marapets codes, such as this one, and place it on a website, a forum signature, forum profile, website profile, etc.
You checked that it loaded how it should. Some sites do not allow PHP Images to be added, so you instead needed to opt for the 'No Images' option. Marapets' servers would automatically be told that you have added Marapets' link to a site and recorded it. Marapets' servers would regularly check the website you added it on to make sure the code was there and hasn't been changed. Once they verified it, you would be added to Marapets' Monthly Checklist prize draw for AU credit. The more sites you promoted Marapets on, the more chances you had to win!Promotion Tips: You quickly and easily added your code to websites that you own(ed) (assuming you have one or not) or in signatures for other forums. If you didn't go on any, you could quickly (and legally) get permanent, free links. By just joining other forum sites, adding the link to your signature and posting 5-15 posts on their forums which are on topic and NOT SPAMMING meaning that your link would show on that site for a long time, earning you prizes every week! For example, going to the Directory and finding a category that interests you. When you have found a category, you then searched for forums. For best results, you could search for 'Vbulletin', 'Invision Power Board' or 'pthhpth'. It would then list possible forum sites. You could join them for free, add your signature and post on their forums (don't SPAM though!) about a topic that interests you! Every site you joined, the more websites your link would be on and therefore the more prizes you would make EVERY week for FREE! If you Promote Marapets often you would be granted a Promote Marapets Award for your profile!
R.I.P. SECRET BLOGS
1st June 2014
Secret Blogs were released in 2004, long before Marapets had dress up characters (dolls). The last blog was released in 2012 and before that, it was about 5 or 6 years before another was released. They were difficult to draw and release, hardly ever used, and unpopular. They have all been retired and the new 'Experiences' feature will take their place.
Your character will now show up as the shopkeeper of your shop/gallery. You can still edit the colours and add a greeting for your character in your Shop and Gallery. You will also be able to have a different background for your Shop, Gallery and the rest of the site.
Decorate your shop with these secret blogs. All blogs must be found in the following order. Secret blogs can only be found if you have found all previous secret blogs.
- Pink Osafo - Have a glowing pink egg in your nest; then view your nest.
- Elger - Complete an Elger Quest.
- School - Complete a course at the school and gain a charisma stat.
- Chocolate Murfin - Complete a quest at the Candy Tree.
- Firey Fasoro - Put a Fire Crystal in your shop and price it at 1mp.
- Spring is here - Go to the pet profile of an orange Kidlet.
- Valentine - Take a photo at Lush Lake Photo Parlour Booth of a Valentine pet.
- King Baspinar - Refresh at the Loyalty Prizes page at Baspinar Castle.
- Digital Fairy - Refresh at the Digital Minipets page at Minipet Island.
R.I.P. UPSTAIRS OF BASPINAR'S CASTLE
19th August 2014
The Upstairs of Baspinar's Castle map is no more because it was old and pointless.
Lost Soul Description: "You are on the second floor of Baspinar's Castle. This is where King Baspinar is kept entertained because ruling Marada is a difficult job, and he needs to relax sometimes! Chill out up here at the Theatre, where the Phanty is always performing. Or you can gamble by playing some card games. You can also get the latest hairstyles for your Character here!"
Points of Interest:
The Barber and Salon have been combined into a new and improved Salon in Lowlyhood.
Lost Soul Description: "Welcome to the best barbershop in town! We have lots of weird and wonderful styles we can try out on you while you are in the world of Marada. While exploring you should always do so in style! That's why for just one Male Haircut Coupon you can have one of these new fantastic styles shown below. Just select your coupon, select the hairstyle you want and then we'll do the rest! We have lots of hair types - you can choose hair loss or hair replacement!
Hairstyles are not always available, some will only show certain times but restock once every 25 minutes or so, so please check back soon. New hairstyles are added in the news regularly so keep checking there."
Complete the Premium Hair Treasure Map for access to FREE premium hair cuts.
R.I.P. Google Wallet ON ACCOUNT UPGRADES
9th January 2015Marapets' approved payment solution for Account Upgrades, Google Wallet, had closed 1st March 2016 and was removed from the site beforehand. They have switched back to Paypal and would like to let you know of the following important changes:
- Payments with Paypal are now processed INSTANTLY for all players. Even if you pay by bank transfer, once the funds have cleared your AU credits will be processed instantly.
- Paypal will charge you in your local currency so you will know how much you are paying without any hidden bank charges.
- All payments will show as "PAYPAL ACCOUNT UPGRADES" or "PAYPAL AU CREDIT" on your bank statement without any mention of Marapets.
- You do not need a Paypal account. You can pay by credit or debit card as a guest.
- You can buy AU Credits with a Pre-paid Visa, Mastercard or American Express with Paypal on sale in many local supermarkets.
- You will receive 10% extra FREE credit with Paypal just like Google Wallet
- They have a new Account Upgrades Promotion with Paypal!
Clothing and Footwear Shops Merge
2nd October 2015
The next phase of the Dress Up Dolls work has been completed. The Male Character has been redrawn. It is very similar to the female doll now, allowing us to draw unisex clothing and accessories a lot easier in the future.
The main changes are:
- Male Characters can now wear all of the female hairstyles and vice versa for females. The Salon will be re-coded when we have redrawn all hairstyles.
- Wigs will only show the female version for now. We will eventually update them so that the masculine versions are available too. Please be patient! They will be unisex soon so that you can have either the male or female version of every wig.
- All Male Clothing & Footwear has been redrawn and is now unisex. Female characters can now wear all of the male clothing - you will see it in the new Unisex Clothing wardrobe category.
- Male Costumes are currently disabled. We are still working on redrawing them to be unisex and fit the new doll.
- We had to remove all Male Selfies so that the new system is moved over. We are really sorry about this.
All new clothing items in the future will be unisex. Once we have completed the transition to the new male doll, we will go back to fix all female clothing so that male dolls can wear them. We hope you like the changes!
R.I.P. MEMORY UPGRADE
10th October 2016The VERY OLD Memory Upgrade feature in Ziranek has been removed because it had been totally pointless since the MaraUpload feature was terminated a very, very long time ago (see above). It remained in place because of Ziranek Goals but this level has now changed to "Restock any Video Game from the Video Games Shop". Anyone who spent their MP on any memory for anything other than this Goal level has more MP than common sense. This machine allowed you to buy more computer memory for MP.
Lost Soul Description: Whenever a player joins, they are given a megabyte of server memory for free. You can memory upgrade buy buying an uploads upgrade for money or from buying more space for MP below. Cheap memory is available at MaraUploads. Memory is priced at 25MP per 1KB.
23rd August 2017
There was an empty space in Ziranek and Memory Upgrades has now been changed to a Memory Saved shop. Although Marapets does not actually need to save server space, the idea is that you earn 1 Memory Point for every item you delete at the 'Move Items' Quick Stock page at your Inventory. You can change the donate option to the delete option.
This new Memory Shop will permanently give extra use to any items that become junk items of little value by removing them from the site. You can't delete Dukka Coins and Fake Dukka Coins as these items are a currency that has their own currency exchanges and have (or will have) their own shops.
R.I.P. MARAHOMES AND GARDENS
We hope everyone is enjoying Chreasterween!
Who remembers Marahomes? It has been 11 years since anything new was added to this feature. It has been 12 years since they became just 'Homes' and 11 years since 'Homes' were removed from the sidebar - and replaced with 'Dress Up' which was going to be the death of Marapets; then over 4 years ago they were removed from the top bar links too! 15th April 2017 marks the beginning of the end of Marahomes. RIP MARAHOMES. Gardens are not going anywhere; while they became a new and improved feature, your homes were technically still around but were no longer any use other than to access your Garden.
The Furniture and Appliances shops have been removed. Their shopkeepers were seriously outdated and all items from both shops have been moved to the Toy Shop. Any furniture or appliances are now toys and your pet can play with them - which will count towards your Forest Fairy prize counts!
The Wallpaper shop has been removed and all 'wallpaper' items have been moved to the Flooring Shop in Gigantic Paradise. Nobody knows why the Gigantic Paradise farm sells carpet, but it won't for long. This is a temporary shop and these items will soon become something useful!
Pots of Paint was the first shop and was home to some of the first items on Marapets, but has been useless ever since! This shop in Biala Mountain has been closed and all paint items you owned have now changed into a new *useful* item: Fake Costumes! The paint shop has turned into a Fake Costumes Shop in Vortex Park. Can't afford a Costume? You can use a Fake Costume on your pet! It won't actually change your pet's costume but it will give you the transformation if you are missing it. This will help with the Rainbow Fairy.
And they're gone! Marahomes and their Gardens have been removed. Any planted (not dead) seeds have been returned to your Inventory. Seeds have also been turned into toys - just like Furniture and Appliances! Minipets no longer have a pointless status (happiness, bladder, etc) and therefore the Resort in Minipet Island will change too.
A new Cheese Shop has opened in Gigantic Paradise. There are 30 new gourmet Cheese items. This has replaced the 'Flooring' shop in this world and all carpet items have turned into gourmet cheese items. The Wallpaper shop in Baspinar's Castle has been removed and the items were turned into gourmet cheese items too. 20 of these cheese items replaced Carpet & Wallpaper items and 12 are newly restocking. The Cheese Shop has also started trading on the Stock Market.
A new Gardening feature is in Gigantic Paradise. Now that the Marahomes feature has been discontinued permanently, this new feature is a way for you to plant your Seeds. You can use this gardening feature to plant seeds, water them and use Fertiliser to grow an Organic Minipet. These Organic Minipets will now grow much, much quicker than before but you can only grow one at a time.
The Resort on Minipet Island used to be a feature where you could pay for your Minipets to be looked after so that they didn't run away. This feature was discontinued along with the pointless "looking after Minipets" feature, but the Resort has been changed. You can now pay 2,500MP once every 24 hours for one of your minipets to visit the resort and receive a souvenir Minipet Plate.

Why can't I use Maramail, Clubs or Forums?
The COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) law states that all children aged 12 and under require parental consent before any of their personal information is entered into a website, aiming at their age group. As the website promotes the colourful and imaginative features of virtual pets, Marapets clearly attracts young children. Children are able to be a part of an online Marapet community; they have the ability to buy and sell Marapets, play games and communicate through email and chat rooms with other registered members of the Website.
When this account was registered, the age group stated was 12 and under. Therefore, unless Parental Permission is given, Maramail, Clubs Boards, Forums and all areas where personal information could be entered and viewed by other users are blocked. This means you also cannot take advantage of our free Journals and Marasites.
How is Parental Permission granted?
In order for your child to be able to send and receive Maramail and take advantage of all of our features, such as moderated Forums and Clubs, we need to have your parental consent. You can do so by filling out this form. You will have to print it out and fill it in. You can then send it to us and once received, we will give access within 24 hours.

R.I.P. INSIDE BASPINAR'S CASTLE6th October 2018
Baspinar's Castle world map has been updated. The interior of the castle has been removed and everything has been placed into one map. This map was one of the original world maps and was over 13 years old. We hope you like the changes!
Lost Soul Description: King Baspinar welcomes you to his Castle. You are in the most prestigious part of Marada, with some of the most important and powerful Maradans. Battling is very important for the king, and he looks fondly upon those who have well-trained and strong marapets. While you're here why not visit the Knight and test your battle skills against some of the fearsome opponents.
Additional Comments: This is King Baspinar XIII after his twin brother died at the Minipet Island War in the hands of Eleka Minions on 29th January 2007. Born only 19 seconds later, as soon as his brother was pronounced dead, he was crowned. I guess he just couldn't wait to be king. However, although they claimed to be identical twins, King Baspinar XII resembled a... fish?

R.I.P. FASHION SHOW
17th April 2014A couple of months ago, tishalook ran an official Marapets Clothing Design Contest on the Graphics Forum and the entries were so good, the staff decided to create a permanent Fashion Show feature in Lowlyhood.

11th March 2019
The Popstar has been added to the Lowlyhood world map and the Rewards page.
28th April 2019The Countdown in Ziranek has been retired in favor of the Notifications feature for Games and your user interface. It was basically a feature that made the site much easier for you to play. For example, it could tell you that you have to wait 12 hours and 35 minutes until you can use the Whirlpool again.
Lost Soul Description: This giant digital countdown clock in Ziranek is a very useful clock for all Maradans. It has a countdown of all of the major places in Marada, with a counter telling you how long you need to wait before you can use it again!
Additional Comments: It was a common glitch for some countdown entries to be missing sometimes. It had been reported and was not able to be fixed until 2017-2018. The entries that sometimes went missing were usually the bottom 3 or 4.

R.I.P MAGIC SHOP
24th May 2019
A new Health Tonics Shop has been released. It's not exactly a new shop but has instead replaced the Magic Shop in Gigantic Paradise. All items previously in the Magic Shop (except for Healing Potions, which have changed to Health Tonics and will stay at the new shop) have been renamed and moved to the Weapons Shop. They will still work as they did before, but instead of being named Wands, they are Magic Staffs. Wands are a new type of item from a new shop coming later this year.

Those of you that have not finished the Easter Egg Hunt, the slot machine level has been replaced with Dukka Dash too.Lost Soul Description: "The Dukka Slot machines cost 25 MP a spin; they used to give small prizes for less money. It all improved on June 12th, 2013. You now also may randomly receive one of the new Bonus Prizes while playing.

R.I.P CELEBRITY WALK OF FAME
28th May 2019The Walk of Fame in Lowlyhood is where we pay tribute to real-life celebrities. From time to time, a new famous person will be released as a Dress Up Game. You can get these hairstyles and clothes for your own character too!
Additional Comments: This was what the Dress Up Game became when it got sent to Lowlyhood. Here is the original news post from 2007:
We have just released the first Dress Up Game on the site. When we released the virtual world of Lowlyhood, we mentioned that it will be filled with celebrities and fashion. We will soon releasing a Walk of Fame on the Lowlyhood map where we add celebrities to the world of Marada. Each celebrity we add will be a Doll Maker, where you can dress up one of the dress up character dolls on the site to look like that celebrity. We have just added Zac Efron doll to the dress up games page. It has hair styles, clothes and shoes for male characters on the site which we have arranged for you to dress up one of our dolls to look like Zac Efron. All of these shoes, clothes and hair styles are also available on the site for your male character, so if you like the items you put on Zac, you can get them on the site for your character too! More of these dress up games will be added in the future for different celebrities.
Well, since the Doll Maker retired with Flash becoming obsolete in 2020, it only made sense for the Marapets team to turn the Walk of Fame into a giveaway feature, much like the Wishing Well at Neopets.

R.I.P. FLASH GAMES
1st January 2020
Happy New Year
It's 2020 and we have a fantastic year ahead of us at Marapets! Sadly, it also means the end of our Flash Games. If you did not already know, on December 31, 2020, Adobe Systems will officially stop updating and distributing Adobe Flash. It had already had limited or no support on most browsers and all mobile devices.
As Flash will be totally obsolete, we decided to disable it. This sadly means that all of our Flash Games no longer award any MP, Score Points, or item prizes.
The Monthly Checklist also does not require you to play these  games this month either. Other changes will be made later this year.
25th March 2020
The game of Snap was one of the first games added to Marapets, released back in October 2006. It's hasn't changed since then and has been awaiting removal for several years now. It was only kept open until there were replacement features that gave out DNA prizes. This game has been removed from the site now and will be replaced with several new cards and puzzle games with DNA as a prize, such as Rummy.
Marapets Description: Snap! is a card game that can be played once every 10 minutes. It is FREE to play too! All you have to do is select a card from the pile and if it's the same as Snappy's card, call 'Snap!' and you will win a prize! Prizes include MP, BP and if you're really lucky, Blue DNA!
R.I.P. One in a Million
3rd May 2020This game was so near identical to Guess the Weight and impossible to win that it was remade into a Prize Drop game. What didn't help the old game that much was the fact that it took numerous guesses to win Millionaire Plushies (which were added on 7th October 2018).
Marapets Description: Lush Lake makes a huge amount of MP from tourism and has decided to give some back. There's a random number of coins inside this huge jar - all that is clear is that there is less than one million in there and obviously more than 0. You can play for FREE once every 1 hour and 30 minutes and if your guess is correct you will take away the 1,000,000MP prize! You may win a Millionaire Plushie or Enchanted Millionaire Plushie bonus prize even if you guess incorrectly.
Anastasia's Old Fortunes
14th May 2020
- Every Rusty has its day...
- A Walee in the hand is worth two in the bush...
- Never look a gift Gonk in the mouth...
- The early Osafo catches the worm...
- A rolling Xoi gathers no moss...
- Better the Crindol you know than the Crindol you don't...
- If you take a Zoink to market expect to come home alone...
- If you swim in sewerage you can expect to smell like poo...
There are some events that are ongoing. There are some events that were one-offs. But then you have these events that fall off the face of Marapets.
R.I.P. Undying FestivalMarapets Description: The Undying Festival will run until October 24th. Complete many site challenges for a guaranteed prize. Every 10 challenges you complete, you will find a letter. There are 34 letters to find. Once you have found them all, work out the phrase below and you'll get a limited edition Daisy pet and 500,000MP! If you complete the Undying Festival, you will have to claim your prizes before December 31st.
Additional Comments: This was a biennial site event for a restricted Daisy pet. It could happen any time of the year and involved solving a big number of clues (which were different every year) and doing activities around Marapets (usually over 40 levels). Ian announced in an editorial that after 2016 the Undying Festival will not be returning. However, items from this event are now obtainable from winning Phantom Four's Jasper's raffle.
