Games Master Challenge returned for the fifth year running.

The fifth annual Games Master Challenge started on November 23, 2010 and ended on November 29, 2010. Each day of the event, AAA challenged users to complete five Games Room related tasks. Completing challenges rewarded users with exclusive items, and at the end of the event, users were given trophies based on how many challenges they completed.

In the NC Mall during this event, Lulu gave out extra Neocash prizes to players who bought NC Challenge tickets.

Qualifying Games[edit]

Only scores and challenge cards submitted from the following list of games counted toward the completion of challenges.

Community challenge[edit]

Neopets Tabard

This year, AAA issued a community challenge. The goal of the challenge was for users to reach a collective 45 million games played before the deadline on November 29. Users successfully completed this challenge, and, as a reward, everyone who sent a score during the event was rewarded with a Neopets Tabard.

Neocash activity[edit]

In addition to the prizes earned by beating AAA's challenges, players could earn extra prizes by participating in his cousin Lulu's Neocash event. This year, Lulu awarded players with two extra prizes if they were able to complete at least two of AAA's challenges for a certain day.

To participate, players had to buy Games Master Challenge NC Challenge tickets from the NC Mall. They could either by one ticket for 300 NC, which would allow the player to earn the bonus prizes from one day, or a pack of seven tickets for 1,300 NC, which would allow the player to try and earn all of Lulu's prizes.

Each set of prizes was released at the same time as AAA's challenges for the corresponding day.

At the end of the event, users were rewarded with trophies based on how many challenges that they had completed. Originally, the top level trophy was intended to be given only to those users who had completed all 35 challenges. However, a glitch involving the World Class Gamer challenge on Day 7 prevented some users from completing the challenge before the end of the event. Because of this, The Neopets Team decided to award the top trophy to anyone who had completed at least 34 challenges.
