With Club Penguin‘s efforts being spread across their portable range of apps, Sled Racer has now become infamous within the community and is steadily increasing in popularity as we speak.
With this increasing popularity, the game has become very competitive and some users have achieved jaw-dropping scores to say the least. This is something that the Club Penguin team has picked up on, and they have now announced a new award for those who are at the top of the leaderboards (within their friends list). That award is the Golden Goggles which follow the gold styling of items exclusively dug up by the Gold Puffle. Below you can take a look at how the item looks on your player card.
The idea of competing against your friends for this item may appear unfair due to the fact that everyone has a different friends list, and some penguins may have to compete with over 100 friends at once.
However, I still think this is a great concept as it gives penguins an incentive to play the game. Lets hope that the execution does justice to the original idea because this could make the Sled Racer experience a whole lot better.
