IntroductionGormball is an ancient game in neopia. It has been played every year since Year 2 during the 23rd day of gathering. For a full transcript of every year you can visit the neopedia article by clicking here.

Gormball is a game where a ball filled with water is passed around a circle of players. However the trick is the ball bursts open and water spills all over the poor person holding the ball! This simple game has been made into neopia-wide competitions and over the years has spread throughout neopets like an epidemic. Er – like a good epidemic. o.O

The longer the ball is passed around the most likely the ball is going to burst open. The game is held between 8 people every year. However yuo can practice at any other time of the year for a simple 20 neopoints a play!


The Opponents

Let’s see those crazy players. From Brian cheating to Thyassa winning three championships!


Thyassa the Chia
He may seem cute, and playful, but he is nothing of the sort. Thyassa is the most devious clever Gormball player ever on the face of Neopia. Ranked #1 in the world, and undefeated in all major championships. This Chia is one to be reckoned with!
Brian the Scorchio
Brian has been known to cheat… just watch him, his eyebrows start to twitch when he is thinking of new ways to win unfairly! Currently ranked #41 in the world, he bears the shame of being kicked out of last worlds Gormball championships for using a rigged ball!
Gargarox Isafuhlarg
When he isnt compacting lovely gourmet food into easy to swallow nutrient pills, Gargarox loves to play Gormball. His cafe ‘Grundos’ supplies all the catering for the major championships.
Farvin III, Alien Aisha
From a long long way away (a REALLY long way), the Alien Aishas have landed and set up shop in Neopia. Their aim – to sell their special food to please all the pets of Neopia. Did I mention that they use their interstellar powers to play a mean game of Gormball? Six ears are certainly better than two, for they use their extra sensory hearing to judge just exactly when that ball is going to blow…
Ember the Fire Faerie
All the other faeries mocked her when she said she wanted to compete in the Annual Gormball Championships, but Ember didnt care. What did those silly girls know anyway? Blessing pets, casting spells, all that is BOOOORING! She has her mind focused on the task, nothing can distract her… the championship will be hers!
Zargrold the COOL Grundo
Well, hey, you know… its Gormball isnt it, easy… piece of cake. Its not the winning or the losing that I care about, its just taking part, oh… and winning all those magical items :)
Ursula the Usul
For six years I have been alone now, training at the top of Mount Usalin. I have reached the pinnacle of my studies and now nobody can defeat me. For me, Gormball is the point of existence, it flows through me, into my veins, binding me together. My studies will pay off, oh yes, there will be only one winner this year… Ursula Usul.
Kevin the Korbat
Kevin has stepped in at the last minute, replacing Dr. Sloth who had to … erm.. do something elsewhere. He isnt that good, but he is a great learner!



The Bonus BallsEvery once in awhile the bonus balls come into replace the gormball for once pass. When this happens either you gain points or lose depending on the kind of ball. Here iis a chart to tell you of all the bonus balls and what they do!

Strategy and scoring

Let’s cut right to the chase shall we?

If the gormball has been passed around more than 4 times without exploding do only a few seconds! However if it has gone around only once or twice you are safe to do about 3 seconds. DON’t click 4 seconds but NEVER click 5 seconds. ONLY click 4 seconds if you start with the gormball. Here:

  • 1 second – you can’t do
  • 2 seconds – do if the seconds before you are more than 4 or equal to
  • 3 seconds – If the seconds before you are less than 4
  • 4 seconds – if there are no seconds at all before you
  • 5 seconds – NEVER!

If you win your score is multiplied by 4. So if you get 50 points as a last score, 50 x 4 = 200. That will be how many neopoints you get. You will also get an item prize.Everytime the ball goes past you you get 2 points. So multiply number of seconds held by 2 and you get the points gained. If you wait 3 seconds you will gain 6 points.

When the gormball explodes on someone else rather than you you gain a point.
