Alien Aisha Vending Machine
What is the Alien Aisha Vending Machine?
The Alien Aisha Vending Machine is a game you can play (in the sense that there is a high score table) by entering a nerkmid into the machine and pressing some buttons. Prizes are awarded randomly and are typically gross food items. Those who are lucky, can get a paint brush or another nerkmid!
What are Nerkmids?
Nerkmids are a sort of token that can only be used with the vending machine. There are twenty in total. You can get them from random events, the Wheel of Extravagance and the Battledome. Of course they are also available from user shops, trades, and auctions. The table below lists the twenty nerkmids in order of rarity; prices fluctuate often, though due to the Wheel of Extravagance and the Battledome giving them out, all nerkmids are now buyable (meaning they cost less than 100,000 NP). There's no evidence to confirm that a rarer one will get you better prizes, so if you're buying one, it's best to just go with the cheapest one you can find at the time.

Using the Machine
When you arrive at the Vending Machine, you will be greated by an Alien Aisha. Press the button to continue.

Put a Nerkmid in the machine, and it will dispense rare and exotic foods for your pet. Press the buttons and push the levers for a chance to get a rarer treat. The better the Nerkmid, the better your prize!

Assuming you have a nerkmid, you will now be able to select which nerkmid to use. In addition to that, you will be able to choose how you would like to operate the machine. The choices you make will not affect the prizes you get. Listed below are the options you can choose from.

Select a Nerkmid
If you don't have any nerkmids in your inventory, you will get a message saying you cannot play.
Sorry! You don't have any Nerkmids so you can't play :(
You can find these hidden around the site, and also in the Marketplace.
Thankfully, you're guaranteed to walk away with something. The Vending Machine always awards a random amount of neopoints (this ranges from 1 to over 50,000 NP) and an item prize.

Mmmmm mmmm I hope you enjoy your tasty treat!
The types of item prizes are listed below:
The most common item awarded is a gross food. The majority of these are hardly worth anything, but every once in a while they're a gourmet food and/or sell for quite a bit.
Sometimes, the machine will give out fading bottled faeries. Just like Tombola and other dailies, the vending machine has not switched over to the weak bottled faeries.
If you receive a weak bottled faerie, please neomail coolitiger25.
Periodically, a nerkmid will fall out of the machine as a prize. Yay try again!
If you're lucky, you can get a paint brush! The machine will give out literally any kind of paint brush, so you really could get lucky here. Unfortunately, the machine recognizes all items with "paint brush" in the name as prizes, even if they're not actually paint brushes; for example, Yellow Paint Brush (TCG) is known to have been given out. It should also be noted that even starter paint brushes (those ones you get in your newbie pack when you join) are available as prizes, even though they are no-trade items.
If it is your first time using the machine, you will get the Alien Aisha avatar.
Making the High Score Table
Just as with every game, on the first of the month the high score table is cleared. At this time, it will be easier to get a trophy, as the scores that qualify for a trophy will be lower. The score that shows up on the table corresponds to the neopoint prize you were awarded on ONE nerkmid use -- it is not the total combined number of neopoints you have been awarded from all of your nerkmids that month. If you get enough Neopoints, you could get a trophy! If you're looking to get the trophy, make sure to stock up on nerkmids (or at the very least, be able to buy quite a few when you decide to try for the trophy). It could take any number of nerkmids to get a neopoint reward high enough for the table. You should also note that your rewards might not make up for the cost of all the nerkmids, so be prepared to lose Neopoints.
