Hello Pogians!

Welcome to the 52nd round of the Pogo Insider. I hope all who participated in Thanksgiving had a great time filled with lots of good food. Did you get to play some Pogo over the holiday? Did you show any friends or family your latest badge or favorite Pogo game?

As stated above, this is the 52nd edition of the Pogo Insider. According to the Pogo Insider archives, the very first Pogo Insider was published last year, December 7, 2016. Sooooo, next week, the December 5, 2017 edition of the Pogo Insider will be celebrating its 1 year anniversary! Hip hip…hooray!

 

Sneak Peek

Pogo artist Tony is back at the Insider this week with a sneak peek at the Premium Badge Album 126 (PBA). Tony is focused in on New Year’s Eve with this badge album.
“This Premium Badge Album celebrates New Year’s Eve. We follow a couple through each Badge as they party and get ready for the countdown to midnight. In this Pogo Sudoku Badge, the man has returned with some fresh drinks but he can’t find his girlfriend in the crowd of masked people.”
   

Thanks, Tony! Can you believe 2018 is right around the corner?!

 

Pogo Sudoku

I wanted to take a minute and say “congratulations” and “nicely done” to everyone that has given Pogo Sudoku a try since its release and especially when it was the Wednesday Challenge a few weeks ago. I received a number of comments and also read a number of comments on our Facebook fanpage and the forums from players stating they didn’t figure they’d like Pogo Sudoku but they gave it a try and they ended up loving the game. This made my heart sing! This is a huge part of what Pogo is all about….discovering a new game to like even when you assumed you wouldn’t. Thank you for trying and please do keep sharing your stories on games you didn’t think you’d enjoy but gave them a go and ended up enjoying them. I love the Pogo community! You’re all awesome.

 

Poppit! Bingo Badge Marathon

When I heard there was a Badge Marathon on its way for Poppit! Bingo, I cheered with joy. Okay, that sounds dramatic, but I have to admit it was true because Poppit! Bingo is my very favorite Pogo game at the moment. Fast forward to yesterday and the start of the Poppit! Bingo Badge Marathon! How are you doing in it? What are your Badge stats at this time?

**Due to the technical issues on Pogo yesterday, the Poppit! Bingo Badge Marathon has been extended for ONE extra day! The new goal deadline is 11:59 PM PST on Monday, December 4, 2017. **

Every week I answer a question or two (non-technical) related to Pogo. We get lots of questions every week, so I try to focus on common themes or the same question coming from different folks. To submit your questions for the Pogo Insider, click here!

(For technical issues, please go to Pogo’s Help Page.

 

Q. With Pogo bringing back one of my fav games Aces Up in HTML5, Will there be a bringing back of other games pogo members loved?

A. The Pogo team is actively working on bringing over your favorite Java (and Flash) games to HTML 5. So yes, absolutely there will be more games that Pogo members loved being transferred over. I wrote a blog article covering this topic back in July and if you’d like to read it, please click here.

Please also understand that transferring over games does take time, so please have patience. The team is actively working on all of this and we are so excited to show you what’s coming up.

 

Today for lunch, I had beans. They were azuki beans. Have you ever had them? I made them in the pressure cooker and they were terrific, especially when paired with some brown rice, okra, and brussels sprouts.

Have a terrific Tuesday, everyone. Good luck with the Poppit! Bingo Badge Marathon and have a great time on Pogo.

Cheers,

Pogo_Llama
