National Barbie Day Screenshot Contest Rules


  • Dress up your AQW character(s) in outfits inspired by Barbie. Whether it’s chic or splendid, noble or nostalgic, let your wonderful imagination run wild 🦄
  • See the “Categories” below to get your sensational screenshot-senses tingling!  


  • Begins Friday, March 8, 2024
  • Ends Sunday, March 10, 2024 at 11:59 pm EST


These categories are just some fabulous suggestions to get your creativity flowing, since it certainly got me excited thinking about the possibilities! Eeeeep! 

  • 💝 Best Battleon Barbae or Barbro: 
    Show off your AQW character’s style with the most amazing ensemble that’s totally 200% Barbie-approved. 
  • 🪄 Character Class Barbae:
    If Barbie was in AQWorlds, what Class would she choose? IRL Barbies can be Astronauts or Veterinarians… but not Vampires, Paladins, or Necromancers! What’s up with that?! With over 100 Classes in AQW to choose from… how does your Battleon Barbae do battle? 
  • 🏡 Barbae Dream House:
    Get ready to create a Barbie-tastic abode! If you were designing Battleon Barbae’s Dream Home, what would it look like? 
  • 🐎 Barbae Riding Club:
    True story folks: “Barbie Riding Club” was me and my sister’s favorite PC game growing up (feel free to message me on Twitter to relive nostalgic memories of that game. OMG it’s Sky Racer… and she has a foal! *squeeee!!*). So um, yeah, that being said… there’s just gotta be a horse-themed category for this contest, otherwise 10-year-old me is gonna freak the freak out! (I think dragons should also be accepted into the Battleon Riding Club, since dragons can also be ridden by the bravest Barbaes and Barbros.)
  • 💀 Dage’s Undead… Dolls?
    Dark Lord Dage of the Undead Legion just celebrated his birthday – and he’s got loads of Legion gear just waiting for you! But who says Battleon Barbaes and Barbros can’t be Malibu Minions for Dage’s Undead Army? Yeah! Party on, skeletons! 
  • 🤩 Maybe more categories?! 
    We’ll just have to see what our community dishes out! Feel free to submit any screenshots you think will really wow the judges (and Barbie too, JIC she is watching… which we secretly hope she is). 


  • The Grand Prize Winner in each category will receive 1,000 AdventureCoins!
  • Our 2nd Place Winner(s) will win 500 ACs.
  • 3rd Place Winners(s) will get 250 ACs.
  • Runner Ups will get 100 ACs each.

Thanksgiving release x 2

I can almost smell the Tur'Draken

You know, battling food and blowing up horrifying food abominations popularized by the NFL has been a long standing tradition in AQWorlds this time of year. However, I have always felt that the Thanksgiving offering we serve you in-game needed less cheese and more epic-sauce. That is why the AQWorlds team is creating 3 ALL NEW adventures for you. And they are coming out this Friday! Alina just announced that the 3rd area is a Member area that has... wait a second. *yells into across the lab* "ALINA....? Did you really write a series of quests about my zombie parents!?" That should be... um... well, I always felt Thanksgiving needed more undead.

Wednesday Releases

All of our games will be releasing their new quests, items, and updates on Wednesday instead of Friday. AQWorlds and DragonFable will be having double releases this week. (Crazy considering the team only has 3 days to do it...  Go! Go! Go!) On wednesday night, Oishii will return in an encore of our Harvest Festival from the past three years. Be sure to bring your Pigrim armor. (Is that what Scott Pilgrim wears?)

Black Friday and the 1/2 off shops!

This Friday, is the infamous shopping day known as "Black Friday." Retail stores across the U.S. open early, and frenzied shoppers rush in like a swam of Horks to take advantage of special promotions. We have a little tradition in-game... half off weapons! Literally. *dramatic pause* (If you are new to the game, Yulgar actually releases a bunch of our popular in-game weapons that are cut in half.) Also, we will be releasing tons and tons of black armor and items.


The first drawing will be held for the special contest next Monday. Good luck to everyone holding onto their golden cheezburgers. Hope you win! (I really do. I want to hang out with all of you!) A lot of people have noted that you get 1 wish, and are anxious to see the "Wish Menu." But, I think it will be more fun to have the winner make a wish BEFORE they see the menu. Let us call it... a test to see what their heart is really made of.

P.S. This picture on Facebook has nothing to do with Thanksgiving. But feel free to share!
