Blog Post #63 – February 13, 2018

Hello Pogoians,

 

Can you believe that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day? Do you know what else that means? That means tomorrow is the Valentine’s Day Amazing Mini Show. I’ll share more details in the blog below, but I’m really excited!

 

 

 Pogo_Rachael has a preview of the Mini Mall for this week AND a little something from the upcoming Claire Hart Sequel! Let’s lead off with the Mini Mall preview:

“Last year, we had a travel-themed Mini release after receiving a player request for it. We had so much fun with it that we felt like we ought to add that to our regular rotation! My personal favorite item in this release is the Marie Antoinette costume, but there’s a lot of fun to be had.”

 

Rachael’s also here with a little preview from the sequel to Claire Hart! She’s been wanting to show you more about the game for a while now, so I can tell she’s excited.

“This sequel takes place a few years after the last episode of Claire Hart; so, as you can see, a few familiar characters have changed just a tiny bit. But I like to think of this sequel as taking everything we love about Claire Hart – the characters, the story, the art – and making it even better. I think you can easily recognize Claire, Troy, and Harper, but just in case you can’t tell: yes, we gave Will a haircut. Sorry, Will.”

 

 

 

Today’s the day!
World Class Solitaire HD AND Vanishing Trail are now available for Club Pogo Members to play. Have you given them a go yet? If so, please let me know what you think in the comments below. Click here for World Class Solitaire HD! Click here for Vanishing Trail!

Here’s a bit more information for you on the Flash World Class Solitaire Badges:

Unfinished Rank Badges will not be transferred over. Because this is a new version of the game, it will come with its own Rank Badges. All finished Rank Badges will be yours to keep in your Badge Collection, too.

All unfinished, activated Badges from the Flash version of World Class Solitaire will be auto-awarded to your account by February 19th, 2018.

All Badges purchased (both activated and not activated) for the Flash World Class Solitaire will be auto-awarded to your account by February 19th, 2018.

What about the Badge Magic Badge for Flash World Class Solitaire? If you received the Sky-High Love Badge from the current Badge Magic, and have not yet completed it, you have already received the World Class Solitaire HD version of the Badge.  Please note, this Badge comes with a different challenge than the Flash version. If you received the Sky-High Love Badge from the current Badge Magic and you already completed the Flash version of the challenge, you will not be getting the new HD version of the Badge as you have already completed it.

Why can this not be done with ALL badges from the Flash and Java games you are bringing over? Yes, this can be done for one badge. But what about ALL the other badges? The Pogo team is currently looking into options on how to do this. However, this takes a great deal of time and attention from the team. (A HUGE amount of time). That’s time and attention we’d like to spend on providing you all with new games. But if I have any updates from the team about this as they look into the matter further, I will let you know.

 

Valentine’s Day Badge Marathon
Thanks to all who are currently participating in the Valentine’s Day Badge Marathon! Are you all having a great time? Remember, you all have until tomorrow, February 14th at 11:59pm PST to complete the Badges and then qualify for the completion Badge. The completion Badge, named Steamy Award Badge, will be awarded to your account one to two weeks AFTER the event ends. Please understand that in this instance, it may be more along the lines of 2 weeks.

 

And the winner is….
I had sooooo many favorite picks for this year’s Valentine’s Day Amazing Mini Show themes. Seriously, I loved your creativity when coming up with ideas for the theme. Thank you for your votes on the Valentine’s Day Amazing Mini Show theme as well! This year’s theme will be…….Love Through the Ages!

Welcome to the newest section in the Pogo Insider. Here is where you will find the latest on game updates. What is currently “under construction” on Pogo? As often as I can, I’ll sit down with the Pogo team and get the latest info on which games are being worked on and what’s coming. I will always post more details when I have them available. Please understand updates are subject to change.

Please understand that unless an announcement comes directly from EA and/or Pogo, we cannot endorse it as true. All games and updates reported here in the Construction Zone have been given the “go ahead” and are on track to come out. Anything else that is reported is speculation right now.

 

Game Updates
Cookie Connect – 40 new levels on February 27, 2018.

Jet Set Solitaire – New levels being planned.

Poppit! Party – I have relayed your many awesome requests for more costumes in Poppit! Party to the Pogo team. As of right now, however, I do not have an update for you on this request.

Jewel Academy – 40 new levels in March

Phlinx II – 2nd Dynasty coming soon!

 

New Games
World Class Solitaire HD – Available today!

Turbo 21 – New HTML 5 game arriving February 27, 2018

Crossword Cove – The team has heard your feedback regarding the style of puzzles and know you prefer the US style. However, the US style puzzles format does not work with the current Flash Crossword Cove. As such, the Pogo team has begun the development of Crossword Cove HTML 5. There is no time-frame at this time. This is (still) the very latest information I have on Crossword Cove.

Vanishing Trail –  Available today! New Hidden Object Game available today! Game has 12 episodes. This is a Mini-Series sort of Hidden Object Game; the first episode will be free, and the additional 11 episodes will be available for purchase all at once!

Grub Crawl – New Hidden Object Game (HOG) arriving February 27, 2018. Like Vanishing Trail, this game is also a Mini-Series that will have twelve total episodes.

A Way with Words – New word game coming in March

Claire Hart Sequel – New Hidden Object Game (HOG) coming in late March. Click here for a blog article about this.

Quinn’s Aquarium – New story-based Mahjong game coming in April.

 

Known Issues
Space Hunt –  rank fix pushed out Feb 6.

Aces Up HD – Challenge progress now displayed at end of every round (instead of every 3 rounds).

Poppit! Bingo – Sound fix coming February 27, 2018. (This is the sound fix that you have all requested, where you will be able to mute the sound but not the caller’s voice).

 

Website Updates
New Pogo Sign-In Experience – (No new update). New Pogo sign-in experience will be starting to roll out in March and end in August.

Chat – (No new update). We’re reviewing new chat solutions. I thank you for your feedback these last few blogs on your Pogo chat experience! I’ve collected the feedback and alerted the Pogo team.

 

Every week I answer a non-technical question 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. Please ask your non-technical related question in the comments section of the blog.

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

Q. I have 5 Pogo accounts and they are all under my only email address. Does this mean I will lose 4 of my accounts if I cannot have the same email address?
A. You will need to register each of your accounts to a separate email address in order to keep your other four accounts. There are many services that offer email addresses, and we’ll include instructions on how to go about doing that as the time nears.

Q. I want to change my name now.
A. You will be able to change your name during the transition. We are unable to provide name transfers at this time.

Q. If we have someone blocked, and they change their usernames, will we have to block them again and again?
A. Players you have blocked will remain blocked even under their new username or if they change it in the future.

Q. Can one Pogo acct have 2 user names with the same e-mail?
A. No. Each Pogo account needs its own email address.

Q. Will my email remain private I don’t want ads in my email?
A. You will have the option to opt out of all Pogo and EA emails about products, news, and promotions during the transition. You can also opt out at any time after the transition from your account settings. If you would like to know more about EAs privacy policy please click here to read.

Q. Will my email address show up in Chat?
A. No, your screenname will be what players see in Pogo, just like now.

If you have a question about the upcoming new sign-in experience, please click here and leave your question in the Forum. I will not be answering questions in the Forum thread. I am only collecting the questions here and then I will answer selected questions on the Pogo Insider each week.

 

Alrighty folks!

I believe I have shared before that I really enjoy reading blog comments. It’s also very important for me to read and comment on the blog comments. It’s also an important way for me to hear what you have to say and relay it to the rest of the Pogo team. However, I wanted to give you all a heads up that next week’s blog comments (February 20th) will not be open, as I am going to be away next week. As such, I will not be available to read and reply to them.  I will return for the following blog on Tuesday, February 27th where the comments will be turned back on. Thanks for understanding and I hope you have a terrific next few weeks. I’m still here to comment on this blog, though!

I’m jumping off to play some World Class Solitaire HD followed up by Vanishing Trail!

 

Cheers,

Pogo Lllama

  • I don’t believe it but I LOVE that new Vanishing Trail in fact I loved it so much I have completed ALL of the episodes already and in fact I even enjoyed the music and purposely waited till the music started over again … THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

  • Pogo, you’re losing your (or our) perspective here. Many of us play and chat, and we have played World Class in room Kitty Hawk for 15 years. No more KH and no more chat. That’s what starts my day off, and I’ve had these friends for 15 years. PLEASE, WE WANT TO CHAT WHILE WE PLAY. Please reconsider that part of it!

    • Hello hangelpoot2,
      There is still a chat feature in World Class HD. It’s at the bottom, although we’re looking into other chat options for the future. Thank you!

  • Hello All!

    I really appreciate the “Under Construction” as it helps plan my (and my friends’) game playing. I managed to reach my goal in World Class, even if it wasn’t maxing out the ranks . . . next on the adgenda is Turbo 21. I hope we continue to receive adequate notice on the HTML5 schedules for flash & java game conversions.

    Some games are still really confusing when it comes to figuring out where you are in the rank and what is needed (the slot games, too fast in PopIts and some others). I hope this also comes in to consideration during the recoding of games.

    I guess that’s it. Enjoy tomorrow’s plans, IF you are fortunate enough to have them.

  • I hate the new world class solitaire. A lot of us like to chat while we play. You cant do both with the new format. Also tried to turn the sound off and couldn’t get back to the game with no sound!

  • There have been quite a few of the new games that are getting more ranks. There are quite a few of the new games that are in the marathons. What about POGO Sudoku? I love this game and have been ranked out for a while now. Here’s hoping you have a wonderful week next week and enjoy yourself as much as possible. Thank you. Sandy

    • Hiya Sandy,
      When I do get some Pogo Sudoku updates, I’ll definitely be sure to put it in the Construction Zone. It’s such a fun game, right?!

  • Hi Pogo Llama
    I did ask this question in a previous blog but didn’t receive any comment so I’m going to ask it again…lol
    I was wondering if all the new HTML5 games and the ones that are being converted from flash recently, like the new World Class Solitaire, will they be giving out tokens for winning a game or a rank? I notice that Jet Set Solitaire and Jewel Academy don’t and now the new World Class Solitaire HD doesn’t either. Don’t get me wrong I do love the new HTML5 games and if they will be doing away with awarding tokens that’s fine too, just curious ;^)

    • Hi Summer,
      Thanks for your question. You are correct that the some of the new games do not award tokens. The team is looking into other options right now and I’ll keep you posted when I know more.

  • I realize that POGO needed to move World Class Solitaire to HTML5 but did you have to take away the parts that made the original version of the game soooo GREAT; big playing cards, ease of playing, simple solitaire game without a bunch of flashing and bells and whistles to it, TOKENS! Instead, the game won’t go to the next game on Internet Explorer so you have to play on Fire Fox. There are NO tokens award for winning or losing!!! Not as bad as 1st Class Solitaire but almost on the size of the playing cards. Flashing bars on both sides of screen. Go back to the map every time whether you have more stamps to get or not. Only supposed to go back to map when you pick your next destination. And again I will state, NO tokens!!!. What is the point of playing the game? This was my go to game after a day of constantly using my mind; simple, easy to play and now you have ruin that.

  • Excellent games, graphics, sound and full screen A+. And not a glitch in sight! Well done everyone! Rudi

  • Pogo_Llama
    Thank you for posting the winning theme.
    In the New Claire Hart I Like Will’s New Look,
    I am still not understanding weather My Current Screen Name will still show
    or if it will be the Name I had to change it to

    I did finish the Valentine Marathon a couple of days ago.

    Pogo_Rachael

    Thank you and the art dept. for doing more Mini Travels
    I will take the Dragon Background no matter where it is Located :)
    This is “Just Me and My thoughts”
    why do the goodies have to be almost as tall as the Mini ???
    the Mini its self can get Lost with the larger items!

  • I wish they would put Chat on the side instead of at the bottom with the new game. When Pogo first started that was the main different then any other site. You were able to chat and play the game at the same time. To be able to meet new friends. Then you would all get together at one game. I really miss all that. Now pogo is becoming like any other game site. Some which are free.

  • i’ve played Vanishing Trail and i like it as i do all hidden object games. the items are so tiny, smaller than most hidden object games. i will play it for badges though. good job Pogo. also played the new World Class and i like it too. it’ll take some getting used to. thanks for making games compatible so we may continue to play them.

  • Your new version of World Class Solitaire is terrible! Slow, graphics are bad and no token. Please replace with prior version ASAP. Thank you!

  • Vanishing trail is a little dark and on full screen it is still hard to see some of the items clearly. 3 scenes is a very short game for 20 gems. all the other HOG games are 4-5 scenes for the same price.

  • I really enjoy Vanishing Trail and the update on world class solitaire. Looking forward to rest of the new games. Thank you! Happy Valentines Day!

  • I was excited about Vanishing Trail, but it is so small and I cannot find a way to enlarge the picture. Will that feature be coming? Thanks!

    • Hello,
      There is a way to make Vanishing Trail full screen. I hope the following steps help.

      1. click on the icon with the 3 lines located in the top right hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      2. Click on the icon with the 4-way arrows located in the top right hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      3. To return to your game with a full screen, click the arrow pointing left located on the top left hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      4. To exit out of full screen, push the ESC button on your keyboard.

      Please let me know if you need more clarification. Thank you.

  • Thank you so much for mute on music in Poppit Bingo. Made the game too annoying and music so loud hard to hear the caller. Thank for up coming fix.

  • love when they bring bk some of the old stuff to minimall,gives others who didnt get it 1st time a chance to get it now,THANKS POGO♥♥ HAPPY LOVE DAY TO U ALL

  • Hi Happy Valentines Day everyone! I tried both new games. The sad part of World Class Solitaire is you don’t gain tokens. Is there anyway we can get tokens in the future? The Java one did give us tokens. I love the game though.

    • Hiya Dolphingirl,
      You are correct that the some of the new games do not award tokens. The team is looking into other options right now and I’ll keep you posted when I know more. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too.

  • Something about chat–

    I really, really dislike that we can’t have badge icons showing in the new-style chat which is below the games. It automatically and only shows your Mini face. People select a Favorite badge/icon because they want it seen!

  • I LOVE LOVE the new hog Vanishing Trails!!! thank you POGO!!!

  • I had a World Class Solitaire badge left to do in the Merry Moments Premium Badge Album and it is not listed as won and also cannot be activated. Will the status of this badge change in my album?

    • Howdy ladyruth54,
      All Badges purchased (both activated and not activated) for the Flash World Class Solitaire will be auto-awarded to your account by February 19th, 2018.

  • I like the new HD world class solitaire, but I do miss the flags of the countries on the backs of the cards,

  • I played the new WCS, it is a little slower than the old version, but graphics are nice, however, the fact that you don’t award tokens just makes this game not something I would play often.
    As to the VT HOG I’m not at all liking it. I think that 20 gems for these HOG’S is too expensive, so this is another one that I won’t be playing. So sad Pogo.

  • Having trouble with the new world solitaire. I am not getting the tokens won. Would like to go back to the old version of world solitaire. Can this be done? This new version is not as good as the previous one. Please advise. This one makes a lot more noise but less enjoyable to play.

    • You are correct that the some of the new games do not award tokens. The team is looking into other options right now and I’ll keep you posted when I know more.

  • I have tried the new world class, not as good as the original, too slow, also I cannot get the last card to come up, when it gets to the end it just starts over on the restack. Not sure why, but it needs to be corrected. Thanks.

  • I love the new Claire heart. the only thing is when your playing the final episode with the differences they don’t change and I keep hitting the same items over again.but I think the game is great.

    • Hi bvlady45,
      Thanks! However, please understand that the new Claire Hart Sequel is not yet out or available for players to play. It will be around the end of March, though. Thank you.

  • Id Just like to say That I do not like the New World Class.. I’d like to have the other back

    Thanks,
    Nrthlady

  • I just got done playing 2 games of World Class Solitaire, which I love, but not in the new HD format. I had to go home and come back to get to play another game, plus it’s not very easy to move the cards. Unless you get them in the exact spot, they return. The graphics are great but not worth the effort for the game. Sorry (I still love the game.) lol

  • The new “World Class Solitaire gives no TOKENS, WHY? This was my favorite game I play every day and now, no tokens given, I want to know why and I don’t like the new game. Can’t see the chat while playing the game. Can you please fix these?

    Thanks
    Linda

    • Hi Linda,
      You are correct that the WCS does not award tokens. The team is looking into other options right now and I’ll keep you posted when I know more.

  • How do you make vanishing bigger? I cant see all that well. bigger would help

    • There is a way to make Vanishing Trail full screen. I hope the following steps help.

      1. click on the icon with the 3 lines located in the top right hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      2. Click on the icon with the 4-way arrows located in the top right hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      4. To exit out of full screen, push the ESC button on your keyboard.

      Please let me know if you need more clarification. Thank you.

  • Thank you for the new games, however, why aren’t alot of the new games not rewarding tokens? Also I would love to see more ranks &/or badges for Scrabble, as well as an updated version of Pogo Addiction Solitaire.

    • You are correct that the some of the new games do not award tokens. The team is looking into other options right now and I’ll keep you posted when I know more.

  • Just tried Vanishing Trail. As much as I like HOGS, this is one I won’t be playing. I have bad eyes and it is just too hard for me to see the objects. Sorry!

    • Hi Meri,
      Have you tried the full screen option by chance? Or are you having problems even with it?

  • I won’t play World Class HD, no tokens, only badges. Need to have both.

  • Hmmm, the new World Class HD… 2 words… NO TOKENS? Yet another new game that doesn’t give what made POGO different. I know, they’re worthless, but at least you get something for playing and giving some sense of accomplishment over time. Oh, and no selection on where to go? When attempting a badge on number of stamps to get, cities to visit, etc. the number of hands to win made a difference. In the old version I could select whether to go 1 or 2 or more hops depending on what I needed to complete a challenge. If I’m wrong on either point, let me know….

    • You are correct that the some of the new games do not award tokens. The team is looking into other options right now and I’ll keep you posted when I know more.

  • I absolutely love Jewel Academy!!! I’m so glad more levels are coming!

  • I’m sad to see rank progress is not transferred over to the HTML games.
    Ranks are the main reason I play Pogo games, I don’t like to see my hard earned progress go away and having to start over.
    I’d prefer the Pogo tech team to work on transferring ranks than working on yet another HOG or yet another version of mahjong.

  • Greetings!!

    I can appreciate that there’s a need to switch the java-based games over to html5 because java won’t be supported much longer. HOWEVER. For those of us badge fanatics (and with a bit of ocd in finishing things) it’s a bit frustrating not having enough time finishing the game badge awards for leveling. I just spent hours these past days trying to get up to level 25 on World Class Solitaire. I barely got it after 11:30pm last night. I would’ve liked to have achieved the next badge “Jade”. Now I’m planning on figuring on how much time I need to spend on achieving level 50 on Turbo 21.

    My point is, there must be a better way at letting players know (with truly enough advance time) to actually complete game level badges if they so choose. Is there a list somewhere of all java based games that will be converted over in the near future? For me personally, if I have an idea of WHICH java game to turn my attention to first, I won’t feel so pressured to spend hours on end to try to attain top level. I haven’t done this in many games and thought I’d have more time…. however the influx of new games drew my attention from the classic pogo games.

    Not to mention, I’d LOVE to go dive into the new levels on jewel academy and enjoy that game, as well as keep on top of the marathon (I was able to complete that in the first day luckily so I could focus on W.C.Solitaire) and the Wednesday challenges. So if there’s a list of the java games that are being dropped in the near future vs. java games that are going to be converted to html5 in some order, it would help me plan what to work on leveling when… and perhaps it would help many other members as well.

    As a side note, it seems like the html5 game releases these days are easier to level than the classic pogo games. It didn’t take me long to level out on pogo sudoku at the top 50! But games like W.C.Solitaire and Tri-Peaks for example, it’s a looooong way from being able to max out the top level. Please show a little mercy on us players. I do not have a 9 to 5 job, and I’m sure that most players that do are even more frustrated at not being able to level out on their old faves.

    BTW: Loving Cookie Connect, Pogo Sudoku, Jewel Academy, Solitaire Gardens, and I’m reacquainting myself with Word Whomp. Would love to just play them, however it’s back to the grind with Turbo 21 if I have a chance at getting to level 50!!

    • Hello LilacFaeSpryte,
      I definitely understand what you’re saying and I really am trying to give the community as much notice as I can in regards to which Flash and Java games are going to be switched over to H5. Please keep on reading the Construction Zone and I will get out notification as early as I am able. Thank you for being a part of the Pogo community.

  • love the new hidden object game

  • Well I have mixed feeling this week…

    First I LOVE travel…been to over 30 countries and 33 US states (lower 48) along with Canada…and am so looking forward to the next mini release…think a few items are coming back and that’s always nice

    Vanishing Trails is an awesome game too…not sure about paying 20 Gems for 3 scenes and a spot the difference but will eventually collect the episodes (if only collecting National Part stamps was that easy lol)…it really is nicely done and I enjoyed playing the first episode…I do wish we had a second arrow for the difference scene like in Clue but it wasn’t too difficult…those bonus items though…way to make us really have to look for them lol (needed that compass to find the flashlight in the one scene LOL)

    Loving these marathons…not the timing with old games being converted at the same time (I lost time and would have reached my goal if not for the Jan marathon)…but a bunch of free badges that can get you a bonus animated one is awesome! (same with the zodiac…gotta finish this week’s but they are fun to collect and I can’t wait to see the bonus badge)

    Also looking forward to the event tomorrow…I miss the old events and how we got a little something for going but it’s always fun to see everyone’s minis and chat for a short while with everyone on Pogo (still hoping a chat fix can be found…half the fun of trying to do challenges is joking around with other players WHILE playing)

    Well that was the positive….the not so good however…

    World Class HD….HATE IT (well more negatives and won’t be refaving it)

    I wasn’t able to reach rank 50 last night…needed another day…I missed out on that BEAUTIFUL World Traveler badge which I really wanted since I am one and am so tired from playing through the night the past 3 nights I can hardly stay awake

    The game is childish….simple as that…and I guess a new norm for the H5 upgrade…the team is aware ADULTS play on Pogo too right?

    The backgrounds are so dark I can hardly see the details…the card backs have ZERO creativity put into them compared to the flag backs of the old game…and the map is so basic…like something a child would have designed

    It is very annoying having to go back to the map after EVERY game…and does H5 not allow the spins or tokens?

    There are a few positives though…

    The passport stamps are actually nice…I made a collection of the old ones and though these are different so far thy are just as artistic as the old game…wish is definitely appreciated 8)

    The face cards are also a fun modern twist…not the traditional deck you would expect…bright and colorful with each having it’s own personality

    The sounds are ok I guess…the lights on the side are annoying but I just try and focus on the cards and can turn off my speakers

    Overall the H5 is a disappointment…if you would lose the monotone background and card backs, bring color back into the game…and remove having to return to the map after every game, and add tokens it would be more enjoyable

    I also hope the new rank badges are actually worth getting…the Aces Up ones are so basic compared to the old ones they feel like no effort was put into them at all…and the old ones (at the bottom of my image) were so beautiful…I’m still upset about missing the World Traveler badge and have my fingers crossed when I reach that point again I won’t be disappointed (the reference sites players use will have the new ranks and badges and info before too long so I can look ahead)

    Well that’s my 2 cents…I hope the future isn’t childish game designs and we can actually look forward to the upgrades and playing old favorites again…Aces Up despite the boring rank badges has been growing on me a bit…I still wish there was more detail in some of the backgrounds (the endless grass fields are so empty until you come back to them and fly over the beautiful orchards) but loving the new badges we’ve gotten (minus the ranks) and that the old game can still be seen in the new style…reason I’m not happy with the WCS…it feels nothing like the old on say for the stamps…the old one was bright and colorful and this one is just dark and gloomy (again say for the stamps and card faces)…even Jetset has more style and personality than this one…which is saying something about the difference between upgraded games and brand new games…

    Well have a fun trip next week…and here’s the code for my stamp collection (not going to make a compilation for every game but some are fun to do this for…like all the aviation stuff from Aces Up old and new – added the extra sayings and images when H5 came out)

    Here’s my stamp collection

    Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!

    • Just had to add today’s release is the BEST release EVER!!!

      Cats in Clogs….the cuteness can’t be avoided ♥ 8)

    • doglvr2010,
      I don’t know where to start because I’m blown away by your really well thought-out comments and suggestions. So, I will thank you and say that I will relay your thoughts to the team. I will say that I, as well as the team, appreciate constructive and helpful suggestions. You have a fantastic day/week here in Pogo.

  • I assume the Claire Hart “sequel” will be taking the place of the current Claire Hart, as this most likely has to do with changing the game to HTML5.
    Yes?

    And this makes me fear that this means the old story will no longer be available after the conversion happens. (Like how we can’t have our purchased challenges in the other games that have converted)

    Am I correct? I REALLY hope not! I have been slowly following the story, and am no where near caught up to where the story currently is.

    If I am correct, then I’m sorry but the way the conversions are being handled are turning into a huge bummer.

    However, it is of course better than losing the game completely, I guess.

    Life does go on regardless, LOL.. But it still isn’t “ideal”.

    So, please please please tell me my assumption is WAY off! :-D

  • I tried the new game Vanishing Trail and I can tell you I won’t be wasting money buying episodes of it. The items are so hard to see I used two different pairs of glasses and gave up on the 3rd level of it. The coloring of everything is makes it so hard to find anything you use colors that will be more difficult for some individuals who have low vision.

    It feels like anymore you reply on our competitiveness for badges to purchase these games and then power ups and fun is going out the window.

  • I hope high stakes poker goes to html5 and kenopop goes to html5 those are my to favorite games please chang them to htlm5 and thank you so very much

  • I have been playing the new World Class Solitaire game and have finished some countries and not getting any badges or tokens for finishing the games.. How do you get tokens after you finish a game and win it… Not sure if I like this game and the backgrounds you can hardly see don’t like it wish the old game was back you can’t pc anyone in these games or whisper it sucks…

    • Hi,
      You are correct that the some of the new games do not award tokens. The team is looking into other options right now and I’ll keep you posted when I know more.

  • Hi Pogo Llama, I am enjoying jewel academy so much I’m at the last level, waiting for more. What I’d really like to see is a badge album for the coin games—Peggle slots, Chuzzle slots, and Bejeweled 2 slots, hope pogo can design something for them. There aren’t many badges at all for those games. Take care, and Happy Valentines Day sweetie!!!!

  • Could you tell us if no longer getting tokens in some of the new games and our badge icons not showing is going to be the norm?

  • What happened to the jackpot spins and tokens on the new version of World Class Solitaire?

  • I want to say the new version of World Class is great. But I am wondering when is Pogo going to put the jackpot spins and getting tokens back into the HD games? I play Aces up & WC and really miss getting tokens and having the spins. Please put them back into the games that have them now when you change them. Thank you

      There is a way to make Vanishing Trail full screen. I hope the following steps help.

      1. click on the icon with the 3 lines located in the top right hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      2. Click on the icon with the 4-way arrows located in the top right hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      3. To return to your game with a full screen, click the arrow pointing left located on the top left hand corner of the Vanishing Trail game screen. (Photo)

      4. To exit out of full screen, push the ESC button on your keyboard.

      Please let me know if you need more clarification. Thank you.

  • World Class Solitaire HD – So another game without tokens?

    Why are the some of the new games having no tokens awarded?

  • Objects are too small in Vanishing Trail with no obvious way to magnify the scene as in other HO games. No counter in the scene differences, so even if you keep track yourself you don’t know how many differences you yet need to find.
