2011's competition pit Brains against Brawn.

The sixth annual instalment of the Games Master Challenge began on November 21, 2011 and ended on November 30, 2011.

As in previous years, Aristotle A. Avinroo challenged players to complete Games Room-related tasks each day of the event. However, the format of the challenge was different this year: there were two teams, Brains and Brawn, competing with each other to see who could complete more challenges. Players could choose which of the teams to join.

The two teams received some different challenges to each other: Team Brains, led by AAA, received more puzzle and strategy game challenges, while Team Brawn, led by Abigail, received more action and adventure game challenges. This was the first time Abigail had featured in the Games Master Challenge events.


In order to participate in this event, users were required to join one of the below listed teams. As a reward for joining a team, users were given an exclusive signup bonus item corresponding to the team that they choose.

Oh good! You can help me prove my brilliance - I mean, our brilliance. Intelligence is really underrated these days, especially by certain people. Let's trounce them utterly, shall we? gif_gmc_brainswoodsign.gif

Some of the challenges released each day were the same for both teams. For others, players received a different challenge depending on what team they were on, but would earn the same prize as members of the other team.

Qualifying games[edit]

Only games from the following list could be played as part of the challenges:

Neocash activity[edit]

During this event, users could join Lulu's Room Raid, where Lulu raided her cousins' bedrooms for exclusive Neocash wearable prizes.

Each day, Lulu and the player could find two prizes, one in Aristotle's room and one in Abigail's. In order to raid one of the bedrooms, players had to purchase the key to the room from the NC Mall for 700 NC. There were two keys to buy - one for each of the rooms - and buying one of the keys allowed the player to earn all the wearables from that room for the entire event.

Activating the keys awarded the player a bonus background wearable.
