Greetings Pogo players,

Wow, what a packed week!

  • Canada’s 150th birthday (Happy birthday!)
  • We had an Amazing Mini show last Thursday (Did you like my broccoli suit?)
  • A brand-new Mahjong Escape episode debuted
  • The new Game of the Month is Phlinx
  • It’s Independence Day in America!

Did I miss anything? Oh yeah, Poppit! Party is having its FIRST Wednesday Challenge on July 12, so get ready for that. How have you all been doing in that game, by the way? For myself, between Poppit! Party and Poppit! Bingo, I’m super busy and having a glorious time.

 

Sneak Peek

Calling all Hog Heaven Slots fans! We’re giving those flying pigs some extra love with a new Badge from Pogo_Tony. This one’s from the upcoming Grand Casino Premium Badge Album. Here’s what Pogo_Tony had to say:

“This Hog Heaven Slots badge was inspired by those great fountain shows you see at theme parks and casino hotels. We added our hogs to this casino fountain show. The hogs love it because they can relax and rest their wings for a change. We love it because it keeps them sparkling clean.”

Thanks, Tony!

We also have a sneak peek of this week’s upcoming Mini Release, “Summer Fun.” Pogo_Rachael informs us that the Mini artists took the “fun” part pretty seriously this time around, too. Check out what will be hitting the Mini Mall this Thursday, July 6!

Every week I answer a question or two (non-technical) 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. To submit your questions for the Pogo Insider, click here!

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

Instead of an Insider Question this week, I wanted to flip things around and ask you all something instead. I know I ask a ton of little questions throughout my blogs, but this time I have just one big one: What do YOU want to see covered in the Pogo Insider blog? Do you want more of something, less of something, or something new that hasn’t been covered? Perhaps you’d like to see more of all three, or have a new idea. Please comment below. This blog is for YOU, so I’m open to all suggestions and ideas.

 

I hope you’re all having a terrific Tuesday. I’ve got Spike here with me and we did some hanging out over the weekend which included some hiking and floating in a cave!

 

Take care of yourselves. Stay hydrated in the summer heat (and all the rest of the time, too, of course). J

Pogo_Llama

  • I have read and re-read the info on POPPIT PARTY and can’t figure out what to do with the outfits. If I selecy one what do I do with it and usually it won’t let me go back to playing Any info would be nice. Thanks

    • Hi audranoelle01,
      Thanks so much for your question on Poppit! Party and I hope I can be of help here. Here’s what I suggest:
      * Select an outfit
      * Click the play button. Once you do this, you will be playing the next round of Poppit! Party using the costume you selected. That costume has its very own unique set of Power Ups.
      * Collect pieces of the various costumes to level up the costumes and that will then unlock MORE Power Ups and also Badges.

  • I would like to see perhaps some stories of Club Pogo’s members, maybe by asking for some short stories about something funny in our lives that we could share and perhaps give other members a chance to get to know us… perhaps a few times a month, like a weekly question.. everyone has a story to tell, it would be nice to share these, non personal, just life time happenings. Like what was the most embarrassing thing you have ever done, or how many times have you wanted to do something but never could because… that would be fun. Keeping it on the positive, funny, and light side of our lives would be the goal. Now days, we could all use a little enjoyable funny things we could all relate too. Even once a month would be fun.

    • I believe I could create a “Question of the week for CP members” and then you all could comment on it. What do you think?

    • Short but true story for you… Dogs are smarter than what we give them credit for… my husband & I have a 4 yr old husky… he is a mother hen, he waits for us to get in bed and he tucks us in every night with one of his stuff toys and gives us a kiss good nite before resting at our feet.. I was tired and hurting from a long days work and my mother was over and staying in the spare bedroom… my husband was snoring up a storm that night and as any wife does I was telling him ROLL OVER YOUR SNORING… our husky jumps out of bed runs into the other room and comes back with his ball that squeaks… I’m thinking this is going to be a really long night.. every time my husband would snore the dog would squeak his toy and the hubby would stop… this went on for about 30 mins or more… then the dog said heck with this put the ball under my chin gave me a kiss and went and slept with his grandma… the end

      • Terrific story on how smart dogs are, Cin48P. Thank you so much for sharing! This past weekend, my dog woke me up just to wake me up from a nap. Now I’m wondering if I was snoring! Haha!

      • Cin, that is hilarious !!! Thank you for sharing lol

  • Can anyone help me to get past the bastet level in Phlinx 2

    • Players?

      • What would cause my mini to have NO SHIRT on while I was playing PHLINX???

        • Hi cookie,
          The Mini having no shirt is due to a slow network connection. Please take a look at this troubleshooting article and going through the tips n tricks listed. Another tip to make sure you only have 1 window open on your browser when playing Pogo and also making sure no one that is connected to your Internet is streaming anything. This all will help speed up loading times and the unshirted Mini issue. Thank you.

        • That used to happen to my mini and she looks good lol

      • It helps more, to go under the game to the game forum and ask. You should receive help there :)

    • When you find out will you please let me know?

    • When your on the game page click the Forums Tab and you’ll see lots of hints!

    • iam having the same problem time and time again

  • Are you going to be unlocking the new costumes (2nd group) in Poppit Party soon??? The first set has been done since two weeks or so after you released the game, and it’d be nice to have the new ones please….THANKS!!!!

  • PLEASE!!!!!! quit using majong and garden solitaire for dailies

  • Pogo_Llama: I need your help. I love Poppit party. There is a challenge today: buy 30 costume pieces from the store. Well, I only have 3 costumes not at level 5 and need a total of 20 pieces only. This challenge should have been when the game was newer. I heard some other players already have every costume at level 5. For those of us who play to have everything 100% complete this will not be possible now. Can this challenge be revised or dropped? Very sad now. All the time and gems I spent in the game were for nothing. Please help. Thank you. TheQ9999

    • Thank you for reporting this issue in Poppit! Party to me. I’ll look into it and see what’s up. Thank you!

  • Hello Pogo Llama. Really appreciate your efforts in giving us such a terrific Blog!! It is both interesting and FUN!! Also, regarding Poppit Bingo, I am, also, having problems.
    When the game is complete, it seems to freeze and will not load another game. So, I have to then start over and try to get another game to load. I really love Poppit Bingo so this is frustrating. Noticed that several other members are having the same problem. Thank you so much, for any assistance!!

    • Hi rjjkemk,
      Thanks for your comment and I’m so glad you’re enjoying the blog and finding it interesting and fun. :)
      Would you please tell me which browser you’re playing Poppit! Bingo on, please?

    • I am having trouble, too, pogo llama…..Poppit Bingo is one of the BEST games yet, I have been a member for many years, it’s my favorite, ( or was). At the beginning, I was able to play best on Chrome….then on IE11………now, it is slow, like dial up slow ! The game freezes at the end instead of going to the next game. HELP !!!!!!

      • Hi Kitnz,
        For the slow load on Poppit! Bingo, there’s a few things to try here. One is to take a look at this troubleshooting article and going through the tips n tricks listed. Another is to make sure you only have 1 window open on your browser when playing Pogo and also making sure no one that is connected to your Internet is streaming anything. This all will help speed up loading times. Thank you.

  • the more years I am here the harder it is to play

    • Thanks for your comment hippiemary, I’m so sorry to hear this. Which games are the most difficult for you to play right now and which ones are the easiest?

      • any more they all are hard to get in it’s like pogo doesn’t like me anymore sob………

        • We love you, hippiemary. What is hard for you with the games? I’d love to help but need more clarification.

  • Need help level 32 cookie connect all my friend gave up on it. I read the forum but that still doesn’t help. I wish I could add about 20 more moves lol.

  • Thanks for the extra TRIP s I love that game. This my second time to fin ish, THANK YOU> SORRY TRI PEAKS>

  • I dont think this comment will be published..I would like to see better games badges for the weeklies not silly kid games. It seems that pogo gives us games ppl don’t play..I am sick of seeing magong escape stuff..or phlinx…trizzle..etc…so plz lets have some good adult games for our badges…for a change…..plz n ty….

  • Pogo_Llama: I only need 20 more costume pieces in Poppit Party. The challenge today is to buy 30. There are players who completed all their costumes to Level 5. This challenge needs to move to collection 2 when it is new. Please have the game makers change this challenge or remove it. Thank you. TheQ9999

    • Hello Q,
      Yes, I will forward this to the team to have a look into it. Thank you for reporting this.

  • Poppit Bingo concerning the new ranks and badges….I have gotten several 1st, 2nd and 3rd bingos and still haven’t received badges for it. I have noticed that there are several badges I should have gotten already and still no luck with answers or explanations. What’s up with this ?????

    • Hello there,
      Thanks for your question. If you take a look at this image herehere, you will see that to collect a Badge for this achievement, you will have to get 10 1st place bingo’s for that to happen. Make sure you win all 10 and you will get the Badge. To clarify, you will not win a Badge every time you win a 1st place bingo, but rather after you get 10 first place bingos. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.

  • I have to say I am quite impressed with this ability to provide feedback. I absolutely love pogo, I have been playing these wonderful games and enjoying the community since I was 9 years old, now in my late twenties still enjoying my time here, and it’s amazing to see how much things have changed over the years. It is a pity that we use to see players in the millions here but still we press on! I am so glad the pogo team is still making an effort to keep this place going and thriving. Thank you to all of you who work at Pogo and all those behind the scenes we don’t know about. I appreciate you!

    • scratch that 13* years old haha

    • Hi pinkbunny181,
      Wow. You’ve been playing Pogo since you were 9 years old and are now in your late twenties. That’s a long long time and thank you so much for being here during those formative years. I’m absolutely here for ya’ll and happy to hear your feedback. Thank you for being a part of the Pogo community.

  • Love the new Mini outfits for summer but one looks a bit off to me, the Barely There in red. Is it just me or what? Have a good weekend!

  • WHEN WILL WE GET THE BADGE FOR LAST MONTH;S GAME OF THE MONTH.

  • When are they going to quit asking “are you sue”, when you hit the enlarge button.
    Come on, if I click that button, I want it, it’s not like your locked into it, if
    you don’t want it. Thanks!

  • Please Pogo Llama the Blog is becoming TROUBLESHOOTING NEWS!!!! People should be using HELP/SUPPORT for their game issues…….I thought the Blog was to have some fun and for you to provide us with upcoming things we can look forward to on Pogo and perhaps to provide some suggestions to make Pogo even better, instead the majority of what I am reading is tech issues….ZZZZZZZZZ

  • Hello Pogo Llama, Regarding your question on July 7 about the browser I am using – it is internet explorer. Hope this helps in this Poppit Bingo Problem. Thank you so much!! Also, We would love to see pogo start another casino slot game like Monopoly Slots. Is it possible??

    • When it comes to Poppit! Bingo, and any other HTML 5 game right now, I recommend using Chrome, Firefox or Edge at this time. Also, thanks for your suggestion to a new slots games. I take it Monopoly Slots is your fav?

  • May we have additional ranks and new cities to visit in World Class Solitaire?

  • Why can’t wee have an undo button on Trizzle? Sometimes I make a move and the doll drops a space before or after the space I was going for. It is frustrating.

  • I will never see this on your answers because I have commented on it before and you ignore it. YOu have made Phlinx II so hard and costly that even though a fun game you need to make it easier to get to higher levels. I have spent over a hundred dollars and still can’t get the badges that are needed. Please help, like I said it is a fun game but I am disabled and can’t afford to pay so much for gems. Thank you for listening and I will see if THIS TIME you actually print it. I am sure others feel the same way. This is supposed to be fun, not so costly.

    • Hiya Cateyes1122,
      Thanks for your comment on Phlinx II. What specifically are you having issues on that you’d like some help with? Please let me know your specific how-to Phlinx II questions and I’ll be happy to help. Thanks very much.

  • When do the new premium badge albums come out?

    • Hello pjrpepsi,
      Thanks for the question. What I can tell you is that the PBA for July is scheduled to be out at some point yet this month. It will be out, but I am unable to say when. Thank you.

  • Please ad the last badges for Word search Daily.
    Only some states have capitols (sp?) others don’t.
    TY

  • Please don’t use the UK version in Crossword Cove. I love the USA format the best. Please read these blogs and leave the USA puzzle format. I work the Crossword in Crossword Cove everyday, and wish it to stay…you can add more badge challenges to it, however, but leave the present format.

  • Happy Summer celebration time Llama! I have had a question stuck in my craw for some time, but only now do I remember to ask. Why can’t Pogo members gift Scrabble M-N-Ms? While you chew on that, why can’t players play Backgammon against Pogo robots? Well off to greener pastures for you Llama! Hope everyone has a fun and safe Summer!

    • Hiya Steurywright,
      No gifting on Scrabble as that game is not accessible outside of the US and Canada. Regarding Backgammon, that game was just never made with the ability to play with robots. However, if you’re looking to complete a Badge, I recommend posting in the forums and ask if someone is available to help by playing Backgammon with you.
      Hope you’re having a safe and fun summer, as well!

  • Has Pogo ever thought of a way to “bank” our tokens, so if by accident you delete them, and have millions, you wouldn’t be “token bankrupt”? You could charge gems for bank deposits. I know I worry that I might accidently hit something that would wipe out my 148 million tokens! Just a suggestion.

  • Why didn’t I get my 100 gems for auto renewal if we lost this feature I will remove my information.

  • I noticed padlocks under each room number on the PoppitBingo screen. Do they need to be ‘unlocked’? If so how?

    • Yes indeedy those rooms with padlocks in Poppit! Bingo must be unlocked to use them. You must rank up to the appropriate level in order to open the room. What room are you currently playing in?

  • PLEASE ADD NEW RANKS FOR POGO BOWL.

  • I also have problems with Poppit Bingo. Game freezes after all bingos are called, never had this problem before it was changed.
