Share Your Voice and Help Shape the Future of Pogo

The new Pogo is really coming together, thanks in no small part to the feedback and help of our Early Access players. We’ve already been blown away by the participation…

  • Over 50,000 of you signed up to participate in Early Access
  • 6,000 Early Access Players have logged over 10,000 hours on the new site so far
  • Over 1,500 forum posts and 500 blog comments

…and the great feedback from players!

We can’t thank all of you enough for checking out the new site and sharing your feedback. Please keep it up!

We’ve got a lot more in store for you as we add new features and games in preparation for the Fall debut. Don’t worry – you won’t be going in alone. A friendly Pogo player named Joyce has been exploring every nook and cranny of the new site. Joyce will take you on a quick tour of the new homepage, Challenge Central and the new games pages. If you go too fast and miss anything, you can click the “Replay the Tour” links at the bottom of the site. Be sure to stick around until the end of each tour to earn a Badge.

We’ll be getting to know Joyce even better soon. Rumor has it she’s even visiting the Pogo Insider for a Q&A.

Want to share your voice and help shape the future of Pogo? Sign up below for your chance to join Early Access.

  • I signed up the first day and have not seen anything yet. I would love to be a part of it. Guess I wasn’t important enough to be a part of it. After being a member 10 years

    • Hi Tweety,
      Thanks for being so excited for Early Access! Please understand there are a limited number of slots available. We’ll be inviting more people in as we get closer to our launch. Thanks for your excitement and interest in the future of Pogo!

  • Have asked this question several times with no response. One last time: why are the new HD games set up to NOT give token credits when the game is finished (unless it is for a challenge completion)? Will this be the norm for all future new or upgraded games?

    • Hi lvgolfer38,
      Tokens will not be a part of the HD games as there is a new reward system being created. When I have more details for you all on that new reward system, I will definitely post about it in the blog. Thank you!

  • i am so happy to see the new pogo i am so excited i hope you get more keno games and poker games my friend roger he loive next store he used to come over and play high stakes poker please bring that game back soon we missed playing that game and i missed kenopop to i hope you bring back keno pop soon and i hope to here from you soon.

  • my friend loves high stakes poker please bring back high stakes poker

  • please bring back keno and kenopop those are my favorite games and thanks pogo

  • Please make it easier to find badge icons you’ve won over the years. It’s grueling to have to scroll through hundreds of pages to find the one you want.

  • I use to love playing Fortune Bingo, Will it ever make a come back? And we need more bingo games , only two choices, not enough.

  • I love the games you can make the screen bigger and play better I wear glasses and i cant read small print so making the games bigger helps me play better. Plus I love the POGO games.

    • Hi AqBl52Player,
      Great news for you as the screen on Early Access is a bit larger. Have you been playing the HD games on full screen? All HD games have full screen capability.

      Thank you!

  • Good afternoon. Is there any way of having the ability get more of the games full screen? There are many of us who have sight problems that would appreciate it. Thank you!!!

    • Hi Rose,

      Great news as the screen on Early Access is a bit larger. Have you been playing the HD games on full screen? All HD games have full screen capability.

  • Looking forward to participating!

  • Oh, and I do love the canasta games and really love pogo….so thank you.

  • I like what you’ve been doing with pogo. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Fortune bingo and a few other games. Please make a few look grown up. We really need games that we can play with other players or AI, like jungle gin. Maybe you can do like GSN and have sweepstakes? Not sure. Well anyway, good job.

  • Could you make more games have the enlarged screen option? So many of them are only the small size and very hard to see. Thanks

    • Hi Quint!

      Great news for you as the screen on Early Access is a bit larger. Have you been playing the HD games on full screen? All HD games have full screen capability.

  • Love it- access to album challenges a little difficult – beautiful graphics–been club member for a couple of decades – my husband who just passed away loved playing kept his mind alert – very sharp at 86 years–thank you for giving him so much fun–

    • Pw1943,
      My thoughts go out to you with the passing of your husband. Thank you so much for being a part of Pogo.

  • Love to see and earn Christmas Badges,Maybe a slot machine or something like spooky slots.Enjoying the new improvement pogo great job thanks!!

  • Love Quinn’s Aquarium, however, it would really be nice if you could add a reference box as to how many moves are left, That would certainly free up hunting time, so that we could replay quicker.

  • Member for about 10 years. I like the fact that there are more daily challenges to choose from

  • Free cell needs a larger screen. its too small and hard to see

  • I justv want to know when we will have the chatb back to the original place, so we can use it…what happened to meet new people and chat to friends..

  • I would love to be able to access the new pogo experience and have applied four times now without success…will there be a chance for me to experience this for myself please.

    • Hi Angiegirl19511,
      Yes, there is a chance for you to be a part of the early Early Access experience. Please understand there are a limited number of slots available. We’ll be inviting more people in as we get closer to our launch. Thanks for your excitement and interest in the future of Pogo!

  • Please keep bowling so that we can chat!! Thank you

  • I love pogo

  • is monopoly slots going to be in the new pogo and how about the old yahtzee

  • Not a fan. I feel totally lost in early access.

    • Hi Tigger32810,
      Thank you for your comment. Have you gone on the site tour with Joyce? What specifically are you having a hard time navigating?

  • Why bother to leave a comment. You don’t REALLY want to hear from those of us who DON’T care for the new access nor what is left out of it that means anything to us. Even on the forums our comments get REMOVED if they aren’t sugary sweet and positive that we LOVE all of pogo. Our comments DON’T COUNT so why bother. I am sending mine as well as others DIRECTLY into Electronic Arts where they will be read and considered and not ELIMINATED by pogo moderators because it doesn’t fit the terms and conditions as they interpret them to be.

  • very disappointed you dont really get tokens in game anymore.whats going on with this.

    • Hi mickey002758,
      Tokens will not be a part of the HD games as there will be a new rewarding system. When I have more details for you all on that new reward system, I will definitely post about it in the blog. Thank you!

  • I’m liking the new site very much, now that I’ve been in there for a bit, navigation is easy! The only negative I have is that game screens are too big now, there is hardly any difference between regular & full screen. I can only sit back so far since my arm is only so long lol. I understand some people will love it but I was hoping that a happy medium could be found for the regular game screen, since there is the option of a full screen for people who like it larger. Looking forward to seeing what’s still to come!

    • Thank you so much for letting me know your thoughts on your Early Access experience thus far!

  • Hiya
    Why is it only a simple of the games on early access site? And will all the games be on there once it released to all?

    • Hey Sandy19577,
      Great question! All HTML5-powered titles are available to play on Pogo Early Access. This includes any game with “HD” in the title, along with newer releases like Sweet Tooth Town and Mahjong Sanctuary. To find Flash games, click on Games and then Flash Games. Thank you.

  • why do you have games that no longer give tokens?????

    • Hi tuttiruttiarutti,
      Tokens will not be a part of the HD games as there is a new reward system being created. When I have more details for you all on that new reward system, I will definitely post about it in the blog. Thank you!

  • badges are all that matters to me

  • hope you get canasta changed over soon

  • been a pogo player for over 15 years and I love how they keep giving us more games I always look forward to THURSDAY and SUNDAY for extra tokens

  • I Like the large screens but they need to have that function on every game. Quinn’s has that feature but it has bugs in it that need to be fixed.

  • i like the new screen, missing my collection for badges, cant change mini or avatar, but think not all possible for the moment, but good start to find games, challenges and more, its a nice one to look for ……………whats about flash games like canasta? it will be in new screen too, what happend, when flash not more in browsers? whats about chat? in html not possible when playing in fullscreen? questions over questions, but be sure to get answers one time lol, good work pogo, it seems so

  • Do you have anything to replace loop the city, I noticed you took it down already. I liked to work those puzzles even though there were never any badges for playing the game. And I saw many high level players at the game from time to time, that ought to tell you something. When you take something down it’s going to be missed and that seems to be the case so often, so many good games have fallen by the wayside and it upsets me every time I lose something. Match 3 games get old, we’ll never run out of them and mahjong games are all over the internet. Hidden pictures I’ve got, also have plants vs zombies. And you know what makes a game great, is strategy there isn’t enough strategy in these games. I’m not particularly fond of games that use power ups, you’ll notice I quit playing quin’s aquarium when the puzzles got too hard.

    • Hi Katmarj,
      Thank you so much for your feedback on different games, especially that of the puzzle genre. I really appreciate it. I totally agree that strategy can make a game really really great.
      Thanks again!

  • I never received a reply after applying, so I wasn’t able to participate. Since I used t write software and user interfaces for the University of Wisconsin before I retired, I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t get one….

    • Hi winobill8,
      Thank you for your comment. Please understand there are a limited number of slots available. We’ll be inviting more people in as we get closer to our launch. Thanks for your excitement and interest in the future of Pogo!

  • Please have more hidden object games. Thank you

  • I’m a huge fan of POGO.. I’m so glad there are new games to play and I really like
    the bigger screens. Thank you POGO for brightening my life.

  • Dear Pogo
    We all the improvements can we have more two player games like Jungle Gin. The new Scabble is difficult to play with the person of your choice
    We have lost most of the Poker Games also Are we gonna get some back? Keep up the Good work as we transition in a new Direction

  • I miss pogo fashion items to add to your Pogo Mini. :( I do hope you bring some back soon cause I love customizing that. It’s like shopping in real life but for your pogo mini on the community. I LOVED IT!!

  • I have signed up three times and have not heard from you. I would really like to be in the Early Access Program.

    • Hi LadyBlade,
      Thank you for your comment. Please understand there are a limited number of slots available. We’ll be inviting more people in as we get closer to our launch. Thanks for your excitement and interest in the future of Pogo!

  • I’d love it if I could turn off the music but leave the sound on in all games. Listening to the same music is distracting and annoying. I’d also love to have all the card games renewed. Most badge marathons are just too difficult for us old timers.

  • I like the HD changes; except you do not give tokens to these games unless a badge. Why not give tokens as in the past. I would play more of these HD games. I have been a member for over 10years.

    • Hi Stella,

      Tokens will not be a part of the HD games as there is a new reward system being created. When I have more details for you all on that new reward system, I will definitely post about it in the blog. Thank you!

  • Please bring Pinochle back to HD format. Thank you

  • There are three or four games I play every morning, as well as the ‘special’ ones each day. Since we have gone on to the ‘new’ Pogo (HD), I notice that I no longer receive tokens for playing some of them such as “Word Search Daily” and Crossword Cove. Can you tell me why this is? and can you make an adjustment so that I can go back to receiving tokens for those games?

    • Hi RbcugalRFCU,
      Tokens will not be a part of the HD games as there is a new reward system being created. When I have more details for you all on that new reward system, I will definitely post about it in the blog. Thank you!

  • I find some improvement in some games but have stopped playing others because they are harder to see because of the smaller screens.

    • Hi GrannieBtrue!

      Great news for you as the screen on Early Access is a bit larger. Have you been playing the HD games on full screen? All HD games have full screen capability.

  • We enjoy chatting while we play, but with the chat below the game field, it is extremely hard to do. Pogo, please keep or put the chat to the right side of the game field!

  • I Love POGO! I’ve been a member for 8 years. I don’t really collect the Badges, but I do like the reward of Tokens! I try to play at least once a day, but can never play for any length of time. I’m a young 80 and enjoy POGO for relaxation!
    Thank you!

  • How about starting a new tournament with more games to play. Would like the older games instead of the newer one you have on here

  • Any chance on bringing Dice City Rollers back?
