Happy Weekend Everyone!
This weekend, we’re going to be discussing a topic sent in by rchvanho2, who always sends in great questions! If you’ve got ideas for future weekend open threads, send in your topic questions! I collect all of the suggestions in a spreadsheet that I consult each Friday when I put together these posts. Anyway, on to this weekend’s question:
What do you love most about Pogo?
Weekend open thread posts are open for comments every Friday afternoon through Sunday evening. You’re free to discuss anything Pogo-related, the discussion topic provided is just a guideline. This is also a perfect place to ask for help with badges, offer help, or chat about the Pogo topics that are important to you.
See you in the comments!

Today’s Mini Mall release is full of re-releases. It’s a mixture of a lot of different items that we’ve loved in the past, and it looks like Pogo’s going for an action movie theme. We’ve got a lot of dinosaurs, some movie sets, a few wild west items, a couple aliens, and a boxer or two. All of these items will return to the vault on August 28, 2015.

Pogo has re-released three Premium Badge Albums in Badge Central today: 10-Pack, At the Matinee, and Now THAT’s a Challenge. There is currently no retirement date listed, so if you’re wanting to wait for a sale, these may be available for some time. Each of these 10-badge albums is 86 Gems.
Note: Pogo is advertising this re-release on the Club Pogo home page, but their ad shows 3 more albums: On the Go, Relax ‘n Play, and Play to Win. These albums are not (yet?) available in Badge Central.
Did you pick up one of these albums? If you already own one of these PBAs, share your tips for one or more badges in a comment below. Thanks!
Thanks to Kathy for sending in the news!

Another set of Mix-n-Magic badges are available now. These three badges can be unlocked via the Mix-n-Magic card game, or if you prefer to wait, these badges will be released individually just like regular Mix-n-Match badges on November 2, 2015, according to Pogo’s Mix-n-Magic page.
Heads up for bargain hunters: the first card in the Mix-n-Magic game guarantees one of these three badges and only costs you 8 Gems. Get more information about how this feature works.
