Normal Servers are standard servers players join when they first join. Normal Servers include all of the minigames and maps that would otherwise not be playable in Large Servers. Normal Servers have a capacity of 12 players.
Pro Servers are more challenging compared to Normal Servers. Pro Servers award an additional amount of coins every time they win a minigame. As reserved for experienced players, players must be at least level 20 to join Pro Servers. Just like Normal Servers, they have a capacity of 12 players.
Large Servers are three times larger compared to Normal and Pro Servers, having a capacity of 36 players. Minigames have a similar difficultly to that of minigames in Normal Servers, however, there are modifications placed in some minigames to handle their capacity. A few minigames are not playable due to the capacity of Large Servers. There is no requirement to enter Large Servers.
Hidden within the lobby, there is a locked door. In the new lobby, it is located underground near the lighthouse. In the original lobby, the door could be found inside the mine besides two other unlocked doors. The secret to open this door is by finding all 5 hats. Clicking these 5 hats in any order would unlock access to the secret room.
New Hat Locations
- TypicalType's former hat on a plant in the building with the leaderboards.
- Worthyshiningkazoo's skull sat on a crate near a campfire.
- A black and white fedora behind a rock near the red slide.
- TheSteelEagle's hat under an open tent near the lighthouse.
- A black bucket hat sitting on the dock.
Old Hat Locations
- TypicalType’s former hat on a counter on the 2nd floor of the lobby.
- Wizard hat on a glass table on the 2nd floor of the other side of the lobby, right across the room you should've found the rainbow hat within (unless you found the wizard hat first, go to the other side of the second floor to get the TypicalType’s hat, too).
- Chicken hat outside of the lobby located somewhere above the shop sitting on several crates.
- worthyshiningkazoo's skull hanging on a crystal in the centre of the mine.
- Go past the mine entrance and you will find a rope. Go up this rope and go to the right. Go all the way to the top part of the lobby. The tree closed to you has a mask in one of its branches. This is the last hat.
Once all five hats are found, the door should unlock and after the player steps in it would award the player with a badge. However, in the original lobby, the room shows no value — just a simple 'Easter Egg'. In the new lobby, it contains an aquarium and two picture frames which, when jumped into, will teleport players to three other games by TypicalType.
