Welcome to Neopia - I hope you brought your swim fins! The newest expansion for the Neopets Trading Card Game, the Curse of Maraqua heads straight for the bottom of the ocean where all the biggest Neopets live. We've shown you previews of the new cards for the Neopets Card Game with stuff like the Black Pawkeet pirate ship, Nereid the Water Faerie and more, but now we have a review of the set. Check it out here for the scoop before it drops on February 25, 2005!

What's Wet & Wild in the Curse of Maraqua Expansion Set?

Takin' a trip to the bottom of the Neopian ocean uncovers a whole bunch of cool new stuff.
  • The biggest Neopets ever, the Chasm Beast and Goregas have 30 Str each!
  • There are a lot of cards to power up, or weaken, Water Neopets.
  • Lots of new cards make it harder or easier to move around, or they make something happen when your Neopets move.
  • More Quest and Curse cards and new ways to draw them.
  • Yurbles! A new species of Neopet that get stronger in groups.
  • Caylis, Isca, Nereid, Captain Scarblade and more heroes and villains!
  • Is the Curse of Maraqua Card Game Set All Washed Up?

    Well, the biggest problem with this set is that there are so many good cards that it makes the older sets seem weak. It's also really hard to play the Chasm Beast or Goregas and there still aren't that many Quest or Curse cards. The next set needs about eight of each!

    Is the Curse of Maraqua Set Worth Taking the Plunge?

    You bet! It's a great expansion set for the Neopets Card Game. It has a lot of really cool cards, powerful Neopets and you still get bonus prize codes in each booster that'll power up your Neopets account.

    The Curse of Maraqua Thumbs Up:

  • Huge new Neopets.
  • Really powerful new cards.
  • Pirate Neopets, yar har!
  • The Curse of Maraqua Thumbs Down:

  • The huge new Neopets are hard to use.
  • Only three more Quest and Curse cards.
  • Curse of Maraqua Set Rating:
