In this week’s Sunday Token Social, Pogo is giving away 5,000 free tokens when you load each of the following games:
Monopoly The World Edition
Hog Heaven Slots (Club Pogo Exclusive)
This token promotion is subject to the daily soft-reset — if you collect these tokens earlier in the day, be sure to come back to load the games after 7pm Eastern too for a little double-dipping and 10k more free tokens!
As usual, these free tokens (and many more) have been posted to BadgeHungry’s free tokens page as well.

The Holiday Tiles are back in Mahjong Escape. Like last year, it’s expected these tiles will be available only for the holiday season.
This is an optional feature — when you load the game for the first time this season, a pop-up window will offer the tiles when you load a puzzle. To begin using these new tiles at another time, start a puzzle and click the Menu button in the upper right hand corner of the game window. The fourth button down on the menu will show you all currently-available “Tile Sets”.
For those of you who like these special tilesets, Pogo also has Happy New Year and Jolly Bear tilesets coming soon in Mahjong Escape.
Thanks to everyone who sent in the news!

Pogo’s promotions page currently shows the following:
One of Pogo’s games is going to be featured as the Game of the Month and will receive 10 new ranks, a new badge, and more. At this point in time it’s not yet known which game will be receiving the star treatment in December, but it looks like the new Game of the Month feature will get started on Friday December 4th.

There’s no coupon code needed for this sale, the eligible items are already marked down in price and are displayed with a red “sale” border.

Happy Weekend Everyone!
We haven’t chatted about our usernames in a while. Let me start this weekend by putting out the same disclaimer I put out the last time we talked about usernames: Pogo has not said they are planning to make username changes an option, but there was a survey in 2012 that mentioned username changes as a possible part of a VIP-level subscription package, which got a lot of people excited. At this point, talking about username changes is just for fun. And with that disclaimer out of the way, let’s get to it:
If it were possible: would you ever change your Pogo username? If yes, what would you choose? If no, why did you choose the one you have?
The weekend open thread is for the topic provided, and also any questions or comments that aren’t quite related to anything else posted on the site this week. Feel free to use the comments here to also chat about anything Pogo-related that didn’t fit in anywhere else.
See you in the comments!
