Blog Post #116 – October 22, 2019

Hello Pogoians!

It’s hard to believe we’re already passed the midpoint of October! By the time we get to my next blog, Halloween will have passed. Here on Pogo, we’re still smack-dab in the middle of the Ghostly Gathering Treasure Hunt. As a reminder, if you need help with the clues, there is a dedicated thread in the forum called SPOILERS for Ghostly Gathering. This is the only thread allowed that contains spoilers, since many players like solving the clues on their own. Thanks for keeping your Ghostly Gathering spoilers in the right place.

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.

Website updates:

  • Starting back on October 18th, 2019 , you may have noticed a new prompt on Pogo asking you to verify your age. This applies to all non-Club Pogo members, including guest users. Club Pogo Members do not need to verify and can simply sign in to avoid seeing the prompt.
  • Older Flash-based games from Pogo retired on 10/8. For a full list and more information, please see this article.

  • iWin Downloadable Game Center retired from Pogo as of August 27. Please click here for further information.
  • Internet Explorer 11  is no longer supported for HTML 5 games. Please note the messaging on the HTML 5 games. It reads like this:
  • Flash and Java Retirements – Java and Flash, two technologies that have powered Pogo games for many years, are being phased out across the internet. Support for Java has already been dropped from most web browsers, and Flash support will be discontinued by 2020. Pogo and EA have no control over this change in web technology. Because of this, Pogo is retiring some of the older Flash-based games from Pogo on October 8. (Please note the date change)
    • For the full list of games and additional information, please click here
    • For games that retired on June 4, please click here.
    • For games that retired on July 2 please click here.
    • For games that retired on July 30, please click here.

We know some of you purchased Challenges for these games you have not had the opportunity to complete. If you don’t get them done before they retire, the Badges will be automatically awarded to you shortly after the games retire.

 

Please note that while these games are going away, there is always the possibility some will be updated and brought back later. Keep your eyes on the Pogo Insider for more game news!

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. What is going to happen to our Minis on the new Pogo experience?

A. A few weeks ago, we released a roadmap of what is to come on the new Pogo experience. I sifted through each and every comment you made. I read about which games you’d like to see be ported to HTML5. I read about how much you’re enjoying your Early Access experience. I read about what you are not enjoying in the Early Access experience. One of the most common questions of all, though, was “what’s going to happen to my Mini collection?”

I talked to my teammates and wrote a blog article all about it for you on Tuesday, October 15. You can read that here.  To summarize, I realize how much you feel connected to your Minis as a source of personal expression here on Pogo. I hear you, and I’m relaying all of your feedback to my team here at Pogo. They are looking at many options of including that kind of creative expression on the new Pogo. So please, keep letting me know your feedback and I will keep on advocating for you!

 

Thank you for reading this just before Halloween edition of the Pogo Insider! When we meet again, on November 5, Halloween will have passed and we’ll be on our way into the 11th month of the year. My grandma has already begun her holiday bread baking! 

Have a great and fun week here in Pogo!


Cheers,

Pogo Llama

  • Hi, Pogo Llama! I always look forward to your bi-weekly blogs! Where are the multiplayer card games, so loved by hundreds of pogo players! (bridge,canasta, hearts, etc)

    • Awww, thanks so much, Splish!

    • Yes! Yes! Where is bridge?? My favorite game. Have tried it on other sites, but Pogo’s was the best! Please bring it back!

    • Greetings,
      I’ve been an active Club Pogo member since July 15, 2005. I can’t believe this is the first time to read the Blog. I will add it to my reading list.
      Good info
      Thanks
      Kona

      • Hiya Kona,
        I can’t believe it as well and I’m super happy to have you here. Enjoy!

  • Love Mahjong Sanctuary. Have completed 450 levels; any chance we may see some new levels in the near future? Thanks

  • Love MY mini, I put in time and thoughts to make my mini fun/ SO please leave them!! THANKS
    Now I’m look forward to December CRAZY CAKES is back

  • I was so excited by the new Expert badges in Pogo Daily Sudoku, I rushed to play another level, but I am not getting any of these badges. Is that a glitch or is that something that is only going to get activated after October 31st?

    Looking forward to Halloween celebrations! I live near the town of Sleepy Hollow and the entire surrounding area goes wild for Halloween!

    • Happy Halloween Hellga99!
      Wow your town sounds like it’s going to be a blast next week, if it’s not already!

      Regarding the PDS badges, there was a technical issue and these Badges will not be counting towards progress until Thursday, October 31st. We apologize for this issue and thank you for understanding.

  • Why Minis are so special to me.

    There have been many posts with reference to minis on the new Pogo. the reasons I love minis and will miss them very much are

    1. I like to change my mini every week, and still do so on a Thursday when we used to get the new releases.

    2. It’s been so nice to be able to send the gift of a mini item to friends, players who have helped me with badges, and as a random act of kindness which I have done many many times.

    3. I along with many many players have purchased a lot of mini items using Gem’s and apart from the 100 free gems we get with our auto renewal we have had to use gems we have had to PAY for with our own money, I for one would never have spent my own money if I knew that these items would then not be of any use to us when they disappear. No one likes to think they have wasted money!

    4. This is the most important one to me personally and maybe many more players also. I have many mini gift items that I have received from a very dear Pogo friend that has now passed away! these items mean an awful lot to me, and when I see them and use them they remind me of him and I use them in his honor! when minis go it will be very very sad! (any new mini replacement will never be able to replace what we have now that have been gifted to us)

    These are only my personnel opinions which we are all entitled to have.

    • Hello Tubs,
      Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on Minis with me. I really appreciate it.

  • I hope you are able to figure something out that we can keep what we have in minis I have a fall one on now instead of Halloween cause it will be gone and the dog drinking in the stream looks like my dog that just pasted away and I have a dog that jumps that looks like her too I will be sad it will be gone hope you team does work something out I put a lot of money into my mini cause I wanted things to express myself but also because it is nice to dream of places you cant go to I am disabled and will never get to go and this is my way to dream of what it may be like hope they can figure out what we all have can stay and be included in the new pogo.

  • Are we going the have to play all the games on full screen in the future. I personally prefer most of the in the smaller format? I have been on POGO for many years and love the site. I will playing for many to come. Thank You for all the years of fun.

  • howdy I saw that the date for payday hd is nov 4 but the tournament for that game will not be over until nov 6. all the other games that have left the tournament always completed the two weeks of tournament. why not this one? should we not bother to try to get a ribbon for that tournament if our scores will not count? thanks bunches for all that you do.

    • Hi Kerzii,
      PayDay FreeCell HD will be arriving after the end of the tournament. :)
      Thank you for your question!

  • Happy October! I love daily Pogo Sudoku….Nice to see you’ve added Expert badges. My question is, why were they not awarded for the ones that were already completed? Doesn’t seem too fair for those (me included) to have to start over to earn a badge, or try and get caught up to complete the expert ones.
    Thanks for your time. Happy Halloween!

    • Happy Halloween to you too, igordonfan24!

      Thank you for your question. To explain more about the PDS Badges, there was a technical issue and these Badges will not be counting towards progress until Thursday, October 31st. We apologize for this issue and thank you for understanding.

  • Are we going to have Spooky Slots for Halloween? It’s just not right without it.

  • Yes, we all LOVE our MINIs. I for one would like to keep it. So EXCITED to play PARANORMAL DESTINATIONS. Also enjoy the Updated Games. Do miss the ones that have gone away. But look forward to maybe SOME of them coming back even if for a short while. Would enjoy more POGO Characters appearing in Poppit! Party if possible. Please enjoy Baking with Grandma and give yourself and Her a Big Hug from the Pogo Family/Community. Thank You for your Hard Work and Determination.

  • why can’t you add more ranks to canasta .we love to play it .

  • I can’t wait for the new Paranormal Destinations! Kudos to the staff for updating all the games that they have. Congrats to POGO for giving us an updated version of Club POGO. Thanks Pogo Llama for all the info! I would really like to see Jungle Gin updated.

  • Please fight hard for our mini’s!!!! I do not want to lose all the things I have acquired! Thank You

  • please please please don’t discontinue the minis, it’s one of the best things about pogo, expressing yourself and dressing for the different seasons and events throughout the year, receiving and sending gifts to dress your mini etc ….. having a avatar is going to be very dull ……

  • when is pogo releasing the last 50 ranks in Mahjong Sanctuary

  • I love Pogo!! I have been working on the Ghostly Gathering challenge. So far, I have completed all of the challenges except for Quinn’s Aquarium. I feel I won’t make the deadline. I am so lucky to be able to pay for Club Pogo. I can’t afford to pay for gems to make this game easier to win. I wish there were another way. I have been reading all the hints in the forums to try and win this game, but am still against a brick wall. It’s taking away the fun and causing frustration for me. I am retired and old, but will keep trying. Thank for for letting me crab a little. :)

    • Hi JenR15,
      I KNOW You can do this. I believe you will win that Quinn’s Challenge.
      Players, do you have any tips for a fellow Pogoian?!

      • You can play previously finished random levels if you’ve finished any of them. Click play, if you think the puzzle is too hard, just click on Quit and go back to the aquarium and click play again until you get an easy game you think you can finish.

    • Hi
      I was having a similar problem like Jan is having. I read a fantastic suggestion by a Pogo player.
      They said to be relaxed before starting to play{that one is really necessary I found}. Take your time and look for the matches that are often by 4 , 2 and 6 and do those first.If you start to become frustrated take a deep breathe and take a break. If you can find this post in the blogs I don’t know if there was more. Also,if you buy a power up buy the extra slot one.
      These suggestions really helped me! I went through at least 6 games just by relaxing and not over thinking.
      Good luck and above all relax!
      Oh almost forgot – I bought one power up and just having it {did not use it} made me feel better.
      Again good luck and if you need any help please post again.

    • go back and play the first one at the gate it easy to win dumb410

    • I finished Quins a while ago and do not remember the challenge but if you finished the first level or more you can go back into bonus play click play if it does not have what you need example keys and locks hit the red circle and quit game and try again hitting play sometimes you may have to go through a bunch before you find a game that has what you need hope it helped good luck

  • I am loving the new early access to Pogo. It took me a little while to get used to it, but it is so easy to find games and challenges that you are working on. I hope everyone will have as much fun with it as I am. The only thing I miss is…..you got it…..my mini. Please let the staff know that I said GREAT JOB!!!!!!

    • Hi BarryandLinda!
      Thank you for dropping a line and letting me know about your Early Access experience. I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying it!

  • Leave the minis!

    Suggestion: add place for comments next to Friends’ names. We can then type in our personal items about that friend.

  • Yay for Payday FreeCell HD! I would love to see a version of Perfect Pair Solitaire someday.

  • Any chance you could have a slow room for Poppit Bingo the way you used to in Fortune Bingo.

  • What is going to Canasta, Spades and jungle Gin? I know they will have Flash through 2020.
    Many of my friends loves these games as much as I do.
    thanks for reading
    elbowfudd2

    • I agree!!!!! My favorites are Canasta and Jungle Gin i spend hours just playing those two alone.

  • BOOOO— Happy Halloween to you all.
    One thing I wish to bring to your attention is important to us all. As the Holidays approach , especially, our time is family and Holiday time too, not just sit AND play on Pogo. As much as we would enjoy being able to spend so much time playing games, we just can not forsake our family to do so.
    So thanks for shortening the length of the times of the game badges and Challenges for us . Happy Holidays to you all.

  • I was hoping with Paranormal Destinations being added that it would be offered free to those of us who don’t accumulate gems. I’m sure I’m not the only Club Member on a fixed income who can’t pay for added gems. It would be so nice to have a Hidden Object game that came at no cost to all. Thank you. And I’m one of the people you picked for Early Access-and I will tell you that I absolutely LOVE the NEW POGO EXPERIENCE!!!!

    • Hello maryliz706,
      Thank you for your feedback. I’m so glad you’re enjoying Early Access! What has been your favorite part(s) so far?
      Paranormal Destinations does have a free episode and it is the California episode. Thank you so much for leaving a comment and for being a part of Pogo.

    • I would like one similar to letters from nowhere. These new hidden object games are all alike.

  • Hi . Do you know when we will get some more Clair Hart secret in the shadows ??? Thank you .

    • Hello HelenfiveP,
      Claire Hart: Secret in the Shadows does come out quarterly now and the last episodes were released about a month ago so it will be several more months. I’ll be letting you know here on the blog when it nears its release. :)

  • Why is From France with Love not listed in the hidden objects games. I don’t see it any where that is listed in games.

  • How about bringing the game Zenerchi to pogo?

  • Hi Bingolady!

    Claire Hart: Secret in the Shadows does come out quarterly now and the last episodes were released about a month ago so it will be several more months. I’ll be letting you know here on the blog when it nears its release. :)

  • Once again you will not post this, but I want my MINI I lost my beloved pet in march,( HE WAS 17,) and I
    put my mini up to honor him, I think this would be really cruel to take that away from me!!!!!!

    I have tried the new pogo, not really thrilled but I am elderly and change is hard, but you want me to pick my fabs with a heart, why can we not vote for the games we are not crazy about? I think that would only be fair so pogo could do better for all of us

    • Hi PAQIGE888,

      I really am so sorry for the loss of your beloved pet in March. What was his name and what kind of pet was he? I’m sure you shared so many beautiful memories together over the 17 years. I’m glad you have a Mini to honor such a beloved soul.

      Thank you so much for stopping by the blog and commenting. All the best to you.

      • thank you for the reply, his name was SAMMY ( SAM FOR SHORT ) he was a DOXI AUSSI MIX a hole 20 pounds of love rescue. I would really love to keep my MINI in memory of him

        • So sweet. Thank you for sharing your memory of your sweet Sammy with me. He sounds sooo adorable!

  • I am concerned about Canasta and Jungle Gin. Which is: Is Pogo keeping these 2 games by changing them
    to HD or leave them the way they are? I don’t want either game to leave Pogo since both are on my Favorite’s List. Also I read what Pogo Llama said about Payday FreeCell HD version the week of November 4, 2018. Did you mean 2019, not 2018? (LOL if was a type mistake) I look forward to Crazy Cakes, so excited about it. A reminder this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I am proud that I am 12 yrs cancer free as of Aug. 2019. I am proud of those who are cancer free as well. I will say for my experience that this country needs to change the age law for mamograms. I was diagnosed at age 35 and most states want you to have a mamogram at age 40, well, if my GYN doctor didn’t tell me to get one at that age, I might not be here today. so that is why I feel they need to change the age law. But for now I am blessed and I have a lot of support.

    • Hello Dolphingirl!

      If I have any updates on Canasta/Jungle Gin, or other games in general, I will definitely let you all know in the Pogo Insider Construction Zone section.

      And yes, I did mean 2019. :)

      Congratulations on 12 years of being cancer free! You have such a great positive attitude. Many happy thoughts and vibes to you. Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.

  • Hi Pogo_Llama,
    Please let the powers that be know that we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our Mini’s. We also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our chat. I live in Western Canada and the friends I have made on Pogo are from all over the world. I have made friends with people in Ireland, England, Australia, and USA. In my 16 years on Pogo I have seen lots of changes most for the good so tell who’s job it is to decide about Mini’s and Chat that to get rid of those two items would be a change for the Bad.

    Also why do the games have to be in full screen? Is there a way to play them in a smaller screen?

    Thank you for your time.

  • Thank you so much for Payday FreeCell!! It’s nice having a different kind of card game, so many seem to be the same like Jet Set Solitaire. I would love to have Perfect Pair Solitaire!! I love that all of the games will be able to be played full screen!

    • I forgot to mention in my previous comment. I would really appreciate to have the option of turning off the music but being able to still hear the game sounds on all games! I don’t like to have any of the music and I know that some do, so it would be great to have the option. Thanks!

  • The long time Club Pogo player simply cannot abide by having my mini taken from me, the sheer thought of this sends convulsions through my very being. I cannot stress how much I do not want someone else’s idea of how I should look, that is soul crushing on every level. I am not a pre-chosen avatar, selected from 50, what appears to be cartoon animals. I have more thoughts on the new site, it really needs a lot of work, and some major additions, before it becomes user friendly, and visually appealing. I have no idea why you feel the need to reinvent an already good thing…On the positive side, I love POGO, and I am so looking forward to the re-release of Crazy Cakes. Thank you Pogo Llama for every minute of your time that give to this site, it is always much appreciated. Have a great week.

  • Bootiful Autumn to you Pogo-Llama! Another Mini lover here with much nostalgia attached to items. Something I haven’t seen others mention but I really miss not being able to see other players’ minis. I used to check them out when we had the SIDE-CHAT… ahem… (;-D

    I also find myself not playing Pogo as much nor do I get excited to go to Pogo any longer. I’m a little lost and miss the chat with ‘friends’ et al: the banter and quick questions when one is confused about something in the game one of us players would respond to the query and there would be friendly exchange of ‘thank-you’ and ‘yew’… Side-chat provided the real sense of Pogo COMMUNITY and spirit.

    The Mini-Contests also excited many Pogonians. We’d make our Minis up to match the suggested Theme for the Contest [that was fun and a creative challenge = added pleasure to being a Pogo member besides just games and badges]. Waiting for the judge in the room and players asking ‘has the judge been here yet?’ Players checking each others’ creation out and commenting. It was fun and there was a bus of excitement you just don’t get from just playing…

    Minis and side-chat really enhanced Pogo to excel well beyond other game sites. I really miss those. Pogo has become quite ho-hum to me now I am so sad to admit.

    Really hope you can wave some Seasonal Magic onto your team to get us back our side-chat and bring back the Seasonal/Special Annual Occasion-Mini-contests. You kept saying the team was looking into the side-chat but now even that has been unspoken of late.

    Thanks to you and the team for listening to our needs to increase the tile and card size for those who don’t have the best eye-sight!

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to comment with your feelings on Chat, Minis, and the Community in general. I am here for you all and am listening. Thank you so much!

  • I not see the new Pogo Daily Sudoku Badges. Are they game award?

    I agree with the other players. My mini commemorates times of life in general, joy, and tragedy. No avatar can feel the emotions experienced during these events.
    My mini allows me journeys into fantasy for relief from everything. She allows my imagination to carry me away from life’s burdens or gives me the chance to express a giggle or two.
    Knowing we (probably) have no choice in the matter, I have saved screenshots that illustrate my patriotism (also my 6 family members who have serve from WWI to date), the loss of my beloved brother, dreams for the future, and engagement with many holidays.
    While it doesn’t cost anything for EA to take away the mementos of life (a mere flip of a switch), it negates all the tokens and gems used to build my album. How sad.

    • Hello sportsplay,

      Yes, the PDS badges are in-game award badges.

      Thank you for sharing with me how you feel so connected with the Minis. And thank you to all 6 of your family members that have served.
      I do understand the connecting you’re talking about and am very active in the pursuit of all-things Minis.

  • minis and chat are what keep people comeing back to pogo. These are things that keep us connected. without these its just another website. Please dont let this happen

  • Please fight Hard so we all can keep the mini items we all own
    as some have said our mini can be a extention for us to enjoy.
    and try to remember Family is very important to us during the Holidays
    and believe it or not some family may not be able to let us use our
    laptops and the like at their home that is to far out in the country
    for that. so go easy with the marathons and challenges .

  • Please please please keep the Minis! I love seeing other players’ creativity and I like to dress mine up according to the season. Would love to see double-deck Pinochle return. Miss it lots.

  • My Mother started me playing Pogo many years ago. I have many wonderful memories of us chatting while playing the games together. She made many friends on Pogo and even visited some in person. She has passed away but I can log in and still see her mini which still makes me feel that she is there. I rejoined Pogo specifically to feel closer to her. Losing her mini won’t compare to losing her in real life but I wanted to add to the comments already shared about how important minis are to the Pogo community.

    • Hi Cocacolakid111

      Thank you for sharing the memory of your mother and Pogo with me. That’s beautiful and I’m so glad you shared a love of Pogo with each other. I appreciate you adding your feedback about the Minis and please know I am hear listening to you.

  • when is euchre coming back

  • Yea! No more fighting with my browser to make Flash work so I can play Payday Freecell. It has been annoying to have to do the extra two or three steps to be able to play. A big Thank You to the programers and everyone else that helped make it happen.

  • I am another Club Member advocating for our minis ….. Our minis are such an IMPORTANT part of our Pogo experience and it also differentiates Pogo from other game sites out there too. It allows for us to have a uniqueness and show our personalities and be different from everyone else on Pogo.

    I am also wishing and hoping Pogo would convert multi player card games (even if we only get to play with a robot) for Canasta, Spades, Hearts. And also would like to see Dice City Rollers and Thousand Island Solitaire converted to HTML.

    Thanks for being our advocate! Have a great week!

  • I am tired of you shining us on with statements like we hear you and we are looking into options.

    Many, and I mean MANY, POGO regulars want easy to use chat like has been available and Tokens. You will lose many of us without these.

    YES or NO, will there be TOKENS and will there be easy to use, while playing, CHAT? YES or NO? A simple answer, no hedging please.

    • Hello Gentleman,

      Tokens = No, however the team is working on a different reward system.
      Chat = Yes

      Have a very great and fun weekend!

  • Even tho I do like some of the new games..it’s just no fun with not being able to chat. This just turns me off as far as playing them and you get nothing for playing unless its a badge game. So what i’m trying to say is it’s lonely playing these games and nothing to look forward after you finish the game.

  • A comment about A Way With Words. Please fix the intro boxes…I don’t know how else to describe them…they are so small, and they weren’t always this small. You can hardly see what you are choosing. Challenge Mode? Game Mode? Continue? Ok? You can’t see it. This is a change and a very strange one. Please mention it to your team. Thank you.

  • ok, so when are more levels coming out on sanctuary???? also, is there a way to play the games that i only got 40 pts to get up to the 50??? i love pogo i get on everyday after i feed the fir babies and have my first cup of joe. ty, pogo for many many hrs of relaxation!!!

    • Hi Skun!
      Thank you for making Pogo a big part of your day after feeding the furs! :)
      When I have more information on more levels for Mahjong Sanctuary, I will surely let you all know. :)

  • Please upgrade bridge to HD, I miss my favorite game. Thank you.

  • THIS IS A SIMPLE QUESTION THAT I AND ALL MY POGO FRIENDS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT…IS POGO BRINGING BACK 4 PLAYER GAMES LIKE EUCHRE, CRIBBAGE, PINOCHLE ETC…I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED THIS QUESTION MANY TIMES THRU THE BLOG, BUT I NEVER SEE AN ANSWER ALL I EVER SEE IS “THANK YOU FOR YOUR FEEDBACK” ETC….THE CORRECT COMMENT WOULD BE, YES THE TEAM IS WORKING ON IT, AND THEY WILL BE BACK, OR….NO, WE ARE NOT BRINGING THEM BACK…THEN THAT WOULD SURELY MAKE MY DECISION ON WHETHER TO STAY A POGO MEMBER OR NOT…THANK YOU FOR READING THIS AND PUTTING IT ON THE BLOG SINCE I KNOW MANY, MANY PLAYERS WOULD LIKE AN ANSWER

    • Hi GABBYMAGGY2001,
      Yes, the team is working on it. :)

      Thank you for asking and for being a part of Pogo.

  • I’ve been playing the new Pogo interface, and have a question. Will there be an option for a text based list view? As it stands right now I seem to have to scroll down to a category, then scroll left/right to find the game I am looking for. (That assumes that I recognize it as it goes by.) Browsing a list all on one screen is so much faster for a lot of us. This interface reminds me of trying to find something on Netflix, which I find incredibly frustrating and annoying. I did finally find my favorites list (the little heart icon might be intuitive for some, but not me). Maybe the favorites list could be somewhere on the page instead of a drop down list? I realize there is a generation that grew up with pictures and icons on screens, but a lot of us prefer words. Right now it just seems to be a random jumble of pictures….

    • Thank you so much for your feedback on the text list view for the games. I have been collecting feedback on Early Access and letting the team know because we’re all listening and hearing what players would like.

      Thank you for being a part of Pogo.

  • I like Pogo Addiction Solitaire and Mahjong Safari but I liked the older versions a little bit better because they didn’t have some of the things in them that slows the game down like the newer versions have. The little shimmer in Addiction Solitaire when you complete a row is a bit annoying and having to click OK in Mahjong Safari when you match two of the safari animal tiles is annoying too. I know many people have talked about having chat on the side of the game and I would like the option to private chat like some of the older games have. I’m sure not everyone in the room wants or needs to hear what my friend(s) and I am talking about. Thank you!
