Blog Post #80 – June 12, 2018

bear_header_715x125

Hello Pogoians,

It’s Tuesday again and here we are in the Pogo Insider! How has your week been so far? I finished all of the Game of the Month Badges for Jet Set Solitaire over the weekend and I had so much fun. I’m now up to Kilimanjaro!

 

Please note: New Blog Schedule

Pogoians, I love writing this blog, it is super fun on so many levels. I feel like I’ve said this before and it’s because it’s true. Here’s the thing: I want to leave the comments open longer and to do so, I need the time to read through each one and reply to as many of them as I can. Also, as you know, Pogo releases new content every other Tuesday so I’d like to pair up my blog with the releases as they come so I can really dive into what is coming out on the site and so I can give you the best most up to date info. As such,  I will post the Pogo Insider blog every other Tuesday starting next week. My next post will be June 19th, as there’s a release that day, and then again on July 3, and so on. This means the comments will be left open for a longer period of time and I’ll be able to take my time reading through and responding. Thanks for understanding.

And now….here’s a special treat just for you!

Stack’em HD is headed your way next week and here are some sneak peek images from the new game! Those animals are looking awfully cute, aren’t they? Which Stack ‘Em critter do you like best?

 

 

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.

Jet Set – New levels coming this summer.

Quinn’s Aquarium – New levels out today! (Second Tuesday every month)

Chat – (No new update). We’re reviewing new chat solutions. I thank you for your feedback in the 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. When will I get the completion Badge when I finish the Father’s Day Badge Marathon?
A. The Father’s Day Badge Marathon began yesterday (For more info, click here). Club Pogo players received one Father’s Day Badge Marathon Album in their gifts. You have until June 17th, 2018 at 11:59 PM PT to complete all of the badges in that album. If you complete the Badges by June 17th, 2018 at 11:59 PM, the completion Badge will be automatically granted to your account! This means no more waiting for the completion Badge to be awarded. This badge will be awarded to in your Special Edition Badges Album. The badge is called the Father’s Day Race Victory Badge and will look like this…..

 

 

Thank you for reading the Pogo Insider. Have a great week of fun on Pogo and with the Father’s Day Badge Marathon! Oh! And happy upcoming Father’s Day to all of the fathers on Pogo and in your family.

Before I sign off this week, I want you all to remember this: each and every single one of you are super important in this community and in this world. You matter.

 

Cheers,

Pogo Llama

  • I love Poppit Bingo and usually play for a half hour to 45 minutes when I play. It seems that every time I play, at least once during that time the game freezes up and restarts. I lose whatever powerups I had used when that happens. Is this anything others have reported?

    • Hi Grffn41,
      Can you click here to run the compatibility scan? Once you do that, please copy the information provided and respond back to this message by pasting that information. The technical team I will forward it too needs this information in order to help you out as they need to know which browser, operating system, resolution, and Java/Flash versions you’re using when experiencing these issues.

  • Hi Pogo_Llama, I am doing the last badge for this weeks Marathon, which is Quinn Aquarium. As for Jet Set Solitaire I have completed all levels even Bali (Extended Stay). So waiting for Pogo to give us more levels in the future. Free Mini’s next week, WOW WOW! Can’t wait to get them. I can’t decide which critter I like best because they are all cute, but I am not a gambler, so me and Sue would not get along as far as that goes. I am curious as to what Stack Um will look like next week. Oh, my question is will the Cow, Sheep and Chick be in the game as well?

    • Hiya Dolphin!
      Yup, all three will still be in the game as well. Can’t wait for you to try it next week. Have a wonderful fun week in Pogo!

  • I seem to be in the minority about badges–I really don’t care whether I get them or not. I play the games for the tokens I earn/win. My hubby and I are in daily competition to see who gets the most tokens and then the most tokens overall. It seems that more and more of the games we love are now not getting any tokens for playing/winning them. Because this reply isn’t really on the positive side, I guess it won’t be shown; but I really would like to know if eventually all the games will be “tokenless”. I sure hope not!

    • Hiya Carol,
      Thank you for your feedback on badges and tokens. I did answer a question about tokens in a Pogo Insider blog a few weeks back. Pogo Insider. In the article, I stated that, in the future, the current token system will be replaced with a new awarding system. Please do click on the link above and then scroll on down to the Insider Question area to read more. Thanks for asking and for being a part of Pogo.

  • How about QWERTY to H5.

  • Please, please, PLEASE bring Qwerty into the HD POGO world. I miss it!!!!!

  • Please explain why our password is no longer needed when buying gifts or badges or even sending gifts ?? I’ve asked this question more than 3 times, please explain why.

    • Hi K,
      Thank you for asking. As part of the website changes for the upcoming sign in experience, you will have noticed some changes to Pogo.com such as removing the need for a password when purchasing gifts or badges. We removed this step in the purchasing process as you are already securely signed into our website and purchased the Gems or have the tokens needed to make the purchase. We will continue to ask you to re-enter your password when you purchase Gems. Thanks again for your question. Have a great week of fun here in Pogo.

  • For the New Quinn’s Aquarium, could you please add gem tiles like Mahjong Escape and Mahjong Garden. Due to bad vision and needing cataract surgery I can not make out the animals and emblems on the tiles that are currently in use. I might like the game if such accommodations were made. Thank You

    • Hi talbertsmomm,
      I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having visual issues with Quinn’s. I will definitely let the team know and please know I’m always advocating for the Pogo community. Thanks for letting me know about this.

    • Hi Talbertsmomm,

      It does give you the option to change the tile sets.

    • I would love it too to have tiles like Mahjong Garden. With bad eyes you get use to some tiles.

    • I have the same issue and would like to see a gem set as well. Now I often misclick and end up having to restart. Having unlimited undo’s like Mahjong Garden would really help us older folks.

    • There are a few different tiles sets and as 1 set is an option is the accessible tiles- It has numbers/symbols for the flowers/names for the 4 seasons, I hope that helps!

  • uhm…what happened to the Stack’em sheep??

  • Love the Fathers day marathon! Mahjong games are my fave!

  • Pogo_Llama, I have a question and not sure if you answered it; with a lot of the games moving to HD, what, will happen with some of the HOGs that I have purchased. Love Clue and Undiscovered but have been hesitant about buying new episodes, since they may go away. Thanks for all that you do, and putting up with a lot of our craziness.

    • Hiya Skip,
      You must be a fan of the HOGs, so thank you for that. We do not currently plan on retiring any of the existing Flash-based HOGS at this time. Enjoy and thank you for being a part of Pogo. :)

  • Love all the games going to HD, much easier to play because I don’t get tossed out lol.
    Looooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeee Picasso.

  • The workaround for sound on Chrome does nothing…still no sound. Instruction indicates to click on
    “relaunch now” button…no such thing on the page. Any OTHER suggestions? So missing the music for Claire Hart and also for SHadows.

    thanks.

  • HI POGOLLAMA PLEASE LET THE TEAM KNOW HOW MUCH MY DAUGHTER TWEETYMONKEY AND I LIKE ALL THE MARATHONS AND NEW GAMES YOU ALL HAVE COME OUT WITH FOR US.PLEASE THINK KIND THOUGHTS FOR HER SHE IS IN HOSPITAL IN ICU BUT DOING BETTER TODAY.SO WE HAVE BEEN MEMBERS FOR OVER 10 YEARS AND MANY PEOPLE KNOW HER.TY ALL FOR THE GET WELL WISHES FOR HER.I LOVE THE NEW STACKEM ANIMALS AND PICASSO IS MY FAVORITE SHE LOOKS SO HAPPY AND ADORABLE.SUE IS CUTE BUT A LITTLE SCARED LOOKING.

    sandi1943

    • Oh no! Please give TweetyMonkey my best wishes for a fast and healthy recovery. I am so very sorry to hear of her health issues that landed her in the ICU.
      You both take care and thank you for your comment.

  • Hi Ms llama!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I have a question about sol gardens, when will the next candy garden level be out please.
    thanks for all you and the pogo team do!
    Liv

    • Hi Liv,
      New levels are added to Solitaire Gardens on the 15th of each month. Thank you!

  • 19 levels in Quinn’s Aquarium? I am not a fan of this game. I don’t like that I can’t replay an easier level and why so many of them????? That being said, if there is a free badge I at least try to play the game. This one may test my patience beyond it’s limitations.

    • You can do it, wldchld. I know you can and believe in your ability to do this.

  • Hello Pogo_Llama,
    Regarding the trophy gifts sent via messages AS Gifts — I would like to be able to opt out of them. To me, they are ‘advertisements’ – NOT Gifts. As a club member, I should be able to have the ability to opt out of these.
    This type of information should be in a different place other than messages.

  • Thank you for the Father’s Day marathon PBA. I waited until today to complete the Quinn’s Aquarium badge, as I wanted to play the new levels rather than random ones.

    I am not a fan of Mahjongg Dimensions. It was my first time playing that game. I liked playing all of the other games in the marathon.

    I second the request to have a settings/stats icon on the main screen of the new Crossword Cove HD game.

    Lastly, I would have to say that Picasso is favorite in the new Stack’em HD game, though I do not like rye bread. Chomper is also cute.

    • Hi quietdi,
      Thank you for your comments. (I am also not a fan of rye bread). :)

  • Which Stack ‘Em critter do you like best? My obvious choice is CHOMPER. My favorite sound from the old Stack ‘Em is from the sheep – BAA-AA-AA. Looking forward to hear whatever new sounds the new critters make.

    • Haha! Love this comment and I can’t wait to hear what you think of the sounds!

  • How about a new badge for dice city roller…love the game

  • Since HD seems to be the way POGO is going, I would like FIRST CLASS SOL TO BE LEFT ALONE because, you don’t have to go through so many steps to get a new hand, unlike World Class Sol, it is so-o-o-o-o frustrating to go through much unneeded steps just to get a new hand!!!! Also, on WCS, I have to turn the sound off to keep it from being jerky, sluggish & freezing-go figure!!! Thank you for the opportunity to voice my feelings :)

  • I am a Club Pogo member, on 6-11-18 when I signed out there was a Pogo advertisement, It said “Play Clue Secrets and Spies on line for FREE”, I buy a lot of gems to play Clue. Could you please explain this Ad. P.S. I Love Pogo, Thank You.

    • Hello greatbb45,
      I am happy to explain this to you. The free episode you received is free to the non-club players as well. However, Club players receive more free episodes than non-club players. I love and appreciate you being a part of Club Pogo. Thank you!

  • Hello, I have a question regarding Solitaire Gardens. I am at Rank75. I am at Candy Garden and have completed Part 1 & 2. I cannot go any further because that stops with the Part 1 & 2. Is there more of this game coming…It is the only one I am fairly good at LOLOL Any help would be most appreciated..TY so very much Elainenbohio

    • Oh how fun that you’re in the Candy Garden. It’s such a beautiful garden, isn’t it? New content for Solitaire Gardens is released on the 15th of each month so you only have to wait one more day. Enjoy and have fun!

  • Hi, I wonder if you could pass along these requests: I like the new Crossword Cove, but when you enter the last letter in the game it immediately blocks the puzzle so you can’t see it. I like to look at my handiwork for a minute or two (lol) so maybe the ‘you’re done’ box could be smaller, or wait a minute.
    Also, I appreciate the updates so that the games will be playable when flash goes away eventually. I was wondering, though, if some of the new art could be more similar to the old art. My favorite art in games is Mahjong Garden and Clue. I love the detail and the fineness of the drawings. Just a suggestion for maybe one or a few of the new games.
    Thanks for listening.

    • Hi duo,
      Thanks for the game suggestions. I will pass them along to the team. The Crossword Cove suggestion you have is currently in the works. :)

  • I’ve tried to get help with not receiving my gifts for the Fathers day challenges…it’s Tues night & I still haven’t been able to start the challenges!!! Can you help> Thanks so much

    • Hi Coral, Please make sure to not only check your gifts but also open your gifts. The Challenges will be there. Thank you.

  • HI THE START BUTTON ON MAHGONG GARDENS DOES NOT WORK. I DON’T WANT TO MISS MY BADGE. THIS MY LAST GAME TO DO PLZ HELP TY

  • Hi, out of curiosity, with all the new HD game changes, those games are not spin to win anymore, does that mean Pogo is phasing out spin to win games?

    • Hello caringkittykat,

  • I would love to see Mahjong Safari, Pogo Addiction Solitaire and Payday FreeCell upgraded to an HD version. Love those games so much!

    I would also love to have some more free Undos for Quinn’a Aquarium. I think that we should be given at least 2 free ones each time that we start a new game/level. It would be a great change to that game which I love by the way!

    Thanks!

  • Why did some of the Stats pages disappear from our games? I really enjoyed those because I could tell how far I was progressing and how far I still had to go to rank out. PLEASE put the stats pages back for all the games. Thanks so much for listening.

    • Hello Sharon,
      I have very good news for you as finding your stats on H5 games actually does exists.
      Here’s how:
      1. Click on the settings wheel located on the bottom left of your screen
      2. Click on the stats button
      3. Read your stats! It works and it’s right there for you

      Here are some images that may help with my instructions:

  • Hi Pogo_Llama! How was your week? Aside from the heat (110*! hard to even venture outside), mine was wonderful, thank you for asking. Picasso is adorable and my favorite; his beautiful green coloring and choice of rye bread are perfect. Not sure I’d put Farmer Fred in the mix of all the cute animals, but his caricature is great. As others have mentioned, would love Thousand Island being added to H5, have always enjoyed it, and I’ll miss playing Monopoly World Edition. Agreeing with those who’ve mentioned Quinn’s Aquarium levels; not being able to choose a level. Many times I’m down to minutes finishing a badge and will have to opt for an easier level, so it would be nice to have that availability with this game, as well. Chat should be on the side of games, as we’ve spoken about before, keeps it easy. I think it’s terrific, and very necessary, you/we have an extra week between Insiders. You are THE best, thank you so much for your incredible nature and hard work with the Insider, allowing our community’s continued open communication! Amazing! Have a safe and happy week! :))

    • Wow, 110 by you?! Yikes. Stay cool and safe.
      Thank you for all your feedback this week, I appreciate the comment. You have a safe and fun week here in Pogo.

      • I know, right, horrible dry heat! Thank you though, definitely have to try & stay cool however possible. Aside from that, I’m figuring you’ll get back with regards to my questions/comments (or more like questions within comments;) another time? I see how lengthy the questions/comments are this week, mine is that as well for a change. Passionate community! :)

  • I still can not play pool or cookie. Everything else seems to be okay! Tells me I have a java problem. My java is up to date! Thanks for your help.

  • And “also” have “finished” the Father’s Day Marathon in 1 day. Just “love” Quinn.
    Please pass on our request for “unlimited undo’s” and have them “name” the aquariums, And I “loveee” the no. tiles.”Easier” on our “senior citizen” eyes.
    Off now to “race thru” the 60 Levels, Level 24 now on Part 2. SMILEY SMILEY SMILEY

  • Pogo Llama I like CHOMPER . I just want to tell you I am loving Quinn’s Aquarium I can’t stop playing it. the only thing I wish was different is not having to buy hint with my gems all the rest I don’t mind. Thank you so much for all the games and the Fathers Day album. I’m almost done. One more to go. Have a great day.

  • Good Day Pogo_Llama,

    I try to keep up with the Pogo news as often as possible so not sure if this has already been asked. Is there any chance you can find out if the sound adjustments can be on the main screen for the new HD/HTML games? I have to constantly change it to ‘off’ as it does not keep my setting. When I enter these games, my one working ear gets blasted out until I am able to dig through the controls to turn it to the off position again. BTW… I have tried to turn this off permanently in Firefox, Chrome, and Pale Moon but it keeps resetting to the ‘on’ position.

    I do also want to thank everyone at Pogo for all the fun new badges and games!
    Have a great day! :)

    • Hi Zanari,
      Thanks for your question. So the sound is not consistent between the Pogo games you go to? I just want to make sure I have the issue in question correct.
      Thank you for playing and participating here in Pogo.

      • Correct, the sound is sadly not consistent. I can turn it off one day and one or two days later when I enter the game it’s on again.

  • Question on Quinn’s Aquarium in power ups. Why can you not buy a few power ups at a time, like sol garden and a few others. I can not afford like a whole pk of using 32 gems at once. Like being able to buy one joker at a time?

    • Hi Badguyjim,
      That is a very good question. I’ll ask the developer of the game to see if they can change that. Thanks!

  • Hi Pogo_Llama Just wanted to comment on how much I appreciate how Pogo did the Father’s Day Marathon. Since it is done though an Album, at the same time you work on a Mix and Match Challenge too. Really enjoying how it is set up. Thank You Pogo.

  • Hello, I hope your well. I have been a member of pogo, I think 12 years. I absolutely love it. Last week I asked a few questions, and I received no answer.
    My first question was, I completed the Jet Set Solitaire Challenge before the end of June, But I still haven’t received my bonus badge. Are we waiting until the end of June to get them?
    Also My second question was about the Scrapbook Badges. How do we know, that we actually have them all. Is there somewhere to go and see a list of them. I would like to make sure I have them all.
    Thank you so very much for taking the time to read my questions and for hopefully giving me a response.
    I am sure you guys are very busy. Have a great day/week.

    Crystal / aabcar

    • Hi Aabcar,
      Congrats and thank you on the 12 years of being a Pogo member!
      1. Nice job on completing the Game of the Month badges! The completion badge for the Jet Set Solitaire Game of the Month will be awarded after June. It should be awarded within the first few weeks of July.
      2. There will be one more Scrapbook badge in July. So far there have been 7. You can find them in your Mix n Match albums if you go to Badge Central. They are such beautiful badges, aren’t they?
      Thanks for asking your questions and for stopping by.

      • Thank you so very much for reply and answering my questions. Have a great weekend.

      • Hey Pogo_Llama, I am so sorry to bother you and I know your busy, but I need you to do me a favor. i went looking in my badges for all the scrapbook badges. Well I’m looking and looking and i can’t figure out if I have them all. Could you list them for me. Again, I’m so sorry because I know that you are busy, but I would like to know if I have them all.

  • Good Afternoon Llama,

    I’ve noticed that in a lot of your answers You say, I will pass this on to the Team. Who exactly is this Team you are referring to? Is it someone in pogo or ea?

    • Hi bk,
      The team I’m referring to is the rest of my team here within Pogo.

  • I like Picasso the best. Too cute. I am new to this blog (not new to Pogo), so I am sure these questions have probably been asked before but here they are.

    1. Part of the reason I play Pogo is for the chance to win money/prizes (like gems) in a spin. The HTML5 games don’t have spins. Will there be other ways to win these prizes?

    2. I was wondering why Pogo does not build in a feature to earn some of the game items that you have to “purchase” in games like Mahjong Escape and Solitaire Gardens. I only get the 100 gems from my yearly purchase for membership and have to play these games without any “help” from those options.

    3. Why doesn’t Pogo allow you to simply gift gems to another player so they can purchase what they want with them. I think that option would make Pogo a lot more money LOL. In addition, it would allow people to buy things that cannot be gifted like episodes in hidden object games, etc.

    Thank You for Your Consideration. :O)

    • Welcome to the blog! I am so happy you stopped by. If you have a chance, please do read previous blogs as they are full of super informative (and fun!) information about Pogo.

  • Why no names for the cow and sheep in Stack’em? Are they being removed from the new format? Mary

    • You’ll see see the sheep and cow in Stack’em. The characters in this week’s Pogo Insider were just a preview of what’s to come.

  • Hiya Pogo_Llama, came across another request.

    In Pogo Sudoku (just as with the Crossword Cove request earlier), I would love to see a settings gear on the main screen before having to play a game in order to view stats and get to game settings. Might this be possible?

    BTW, I like Chomper in Stack ‘Em HD and thanks again, Pogo_Llama and have a nice week.

  • What is wrong with Quinn’s Aquarium game. Been trying to logon since Mon(6/11) to play the Father’s Day Challenge. My system seems frozen –can this be checked out. Thank you in advance.

    • Can you click here to run the compatibility scan? Once you do that, please copy the information provided and respond back to this message by pasting that information. The technical team I will forward it too needs this information in order to help you out as they need to know which browser, operating system, resolution, and Java/Flash versions you’re using when experiencing these issues.

  • I agree with talbertsmomm. I would like to see all mahjong games have a Gems option. I always use those tile when available. They are much easier for me to match. Like the new cute little stack’em characters, even though I’m no crazy about the game itself. I agree with others that Querty should be one of the games to be converted. Have a great day, and thank you for keeping us informed.

  • Hi Pogo_Llama!

    My friends and I would dearly love to see Yahtzee Party rooms expanded to 15 players,
    please!

    Also, we deeply miss playing Lottso & Dice City Rollers! Please add these to the list of games to become HTML5!

    TY TY!

  • I was wondering if there is a way to put Mahjong Dimension’s in full screen. I really enjoyed playing the game. Thank You!

    • Thank you for the request, pzzlqn80. Unfortunately right now there is not a way to make the screen full size in Mahjong Dimensions.

  • Could you please explain what is going to happen to our tokens? Are they going away?

    • Hi Poker,
      I did answer a question about tokens in a Pogo Insider blog a few weeks back. Pogo Insider. In the article, I stated that, in the future, the current token system will be replaced with a new awarding system. Please do click on the link above and then scroll on down to the Insider Question area to read more. Thanks for asking and for being a part of Pogo.
