Hello Pogoians!

There’s a full moon tonight! It’s called the Full Flower Moon as this is the time of year when spring flowers are most in bloom, according to early Native American tribes.

 Do you recall back in March when I asked you all to vote on which themed Mix n Match pack you’d like to see available in Pogo? The winner was the Solitaire Bundle and it’s going to be released in June! Here’s this week’s sneak peek, which is the four badges for the upcoming Player’s Choice June Mix n Match pack. Of the four, which will be your favorite game to play? Which badge design do you like the best? (Comment below!)

      

Welcome to the Construction Zone! 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.

Jewel Academy – We have informed the developers of the issue and are now working on a fix for the current Wednesday Challenge.

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. Why am I unable to use the enter/tab/space bar keys in Crossword Cove HD?
A. The great news is now you can! Yup! I heard your feedback and relayed it to the team, who then worked with the developer, and now you can use the enter, tab, and space bar keys to navigate your way through Crossword Cove HD. Have a great time, I know I have been!

Q. Why are there no tokens in Crossword Cove HD? Will there be tokens in upcoming HTML 5 games?
A. I, and the rest of the Pogo team, know this is a point of contention with some players. As I stated in the comments last week, For those of you for whom tokens provide a way to project status and achievement over time, we hear you and we understand your aversion to losing this status. So here’s the great news: we have a new system in the works that will allow you to engage with Pogo in new and meaningful ways. The Pogo team is actively working on this new system and is working with your wants and needs in mind. We’ll provide more details at a later time, but we’re truly excited about what we’re working on for you. In the meantime, please enjoy the many other fun ways to enjoy Pogo which include (but are not limited to), playing/finding/experiencing games, making friends, working on Challenges, ranking up, and chatting.

 

I’ve been playing Crossword Cove HD daily since it game out last Tuesday and now I’m going back in time to finish those puzzles, too! I’m having a really great time testing my mind. I have to admit that although my great grandmother was an avid crossword fan during my youth, I had not tried it out before. Having that memory of my great grandma inspired me to try and now, I’m really enjoying the different way it makes my brain think.  I can definitely see the appeal and I will continue to work on the puzzles in Crossword Cove.

Thank you for reading this edition of the Pogo Insider. I wish you all a great rest of the week and a fun time in Pogo! I will definitely read and reply to your comments as best and fast as I can. Please click here to read more on Pogo Insider blog commenting. Thank you!

Cheers,

Pogo Llama
