The iceberg is a meeting place for penguins. Club Penguin has never claimed the iceberg can be tipped. However, since there are rumors flying, this called for an emergency trip to, where else, but You Tube. I wanted to see for myself if the iceberg could be tipped. I watched video after video of people claiming to tip the iceberg. Some did it by getting all players to shift to one side. While this method seems feasible, nothing happened in most of the videos, although a few showed a screen that appeared from nowhere, as the game remained paused. The screen that popped up stated that the iceberg had been tipped, however these players had been kicked out of the game. Now why would they be kicked out of the game if they found a way to tip the iceberg? Isn't this the way you are supposed to play games? Upon further inspection, it is unfortunate but true that these videos were edited to show various screens to stake their claim in the feat. However, all of the screens shown by various editing wizards also show different screens, colors in the screens, and an all around fake look.
More fans pressed on with video hoaxes and jokes. Chain saws appear in some, electing to show folks how to saw the iceberg apart. None ever fall apart, none ever show an actual tip. After the chain saws came the dancers. Calling many other players to one side, everyone yelled for dancing to commence. Little penguins were bouncing by the dozens. After a bit of time, your eyes tend to follow the black, purple, green, pink, orange and blue critters up and down, but still to no avail. Not one flip, slip or tip of the berg.
You would think that using a jack hammer might crack its way into the frozen tundra. No such luck. I watched as at least fifty players bounced their way across the berg, hoping to hit the mother lode, the holy grail of cheats, but nothing happened besides their penguins looked a little shaken.
Forum after forum, site after game site, and finally the creme de la creme of gaming in Club Penguin, the website itself. Apparently after all of the hours of chiseling, bouncing, dancing and crowding, the game does not allow tipping of the iceberg. There is talk of another game to come out at a later time that will introduce the tipping of the iceberg, but even it is not for certain.
So, Club Penguin players, keep on dancing. Keep chiseling and working your way through the social network that is Club Penguin. Enjoy the characters, the colors and graphics, the bits of comical tapestry woven into a Facebook-like socializing site, but don't expect that iceberg to tip. The next time you hear someone say they can tip the iceberg in Club Penguin, you can be sure it's a hoax, a fake, someone trying to get their joy out of being "the one" that did the impossible. Until they can prove it, remain assured that it is impossible to tip the chilly home of the penguins at the club.
