In this week’s Sunday Token Social, Pogo is giving away 5,000 free tokens when you load each of the following games:
Mahjong Garden (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 8pm 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.

For a brief moment, our Mini artists wondered if the eagle in this mini might be a little too big. We’re really glad they overcame that instant of doubt, because let’s face it: bald eagles rock!
Thanks to phillyangel23 and jdvcdcl for sending in the news!

Happy Weekend Everyone!
For various reasons, I’ve got one account I use for BadgeHungry purposes, one account that has my badge and token collection, and one account that has my Mini collection. I’m way too familiar with Pogo’s sign-in/sign-out pages, and it’d be so nice to have one “main” account with all of my collections and accomplishments in one place. But at this point, it’d be too time-consuming and probably impossible to ‘catch up’ one of my accounts to that level. Live and learn.
What was your biggest Pogo mistake? Could it have been avoided?
For the weekend open threads, you don’t have to stick to the topic at-hand here, these posts are open to any Pogo-related discussions you’d like to have. Share a game tip, ask for help with a badge, or stop in and let us know your recent accomplishments. Check in a few times over the weekend, read a few comments, and say hi. We may be “badge hungry” but we won’t bite.
See you in the comments!

Caren wrote in to share the news that Puffin, a free alternate browser for iOS and Android devices, now supports Flash completely for free. This means you can play any of Pogo’s Flash games from your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android phone, or Android tablet. I’ve been playing with it for a few days and it’s working well for browsing Pogo.com and playing games.
To get started, visit this page from your device, then click on the link below to download the app for your device:
• Puffin Browser Free – iOS
• Puffin Browser Free – Android
It may be easiest to send yourself an email with the URL to this post, then open the email from your device and click on the link.
In the past, I’d shared Splashtop iOS and Splashtop Android as a way to access Pogo games on your iOS or Android devices. Splashtop is a remote desktop app, which means it needs to connect to your desktop or laptop to work. That said, it also will support anything your desktop will support, like Java games. Puffin, on the other hand, doesn’t require anything but your device and an internet connection, but it won’t play any of Pogo’s Java games.
Thanks so much to Caren for the find!

Here’s a peek at the badges for the upcoming level of Mahjong Escape, New York. This level and these badges will be available on August 1st.
As with previous expansion levels, when New York is released, it will probably require players to have completed all of the previous Vietnam and Britain puzzles before it’s unlocked. It’s expected that Late India will be unlocked to all players on July 15th.
Take a look at the 12 new badges to be earned in Mahjong Escape New York, and then share your thoughts on them in a comment below.

Today’s Mini Mall release brings us a bunch of new, some of which were previewed here, plus a handful of re-released underwater Minis as well. All of these items will go into the vault on Friday, July 31, 2015.
Note: the two deep-sea diver outfit that were previewed earlier were “Deep Sea Pal” (women’s) and “Octopus Diving Pal” (men’s) costume. You can find them by switching between the men and women’s sections.
The Gemstone Fairy collectible of the month for July 2015 is here — Iolana’s Volcano is a 2-piece set including the Ruby fairy and the “Obsidian’s Playground” background. Note: this background is currently “for sale” in the Mini Mall for -1 Gem and you will be unable to check out if you attempt to purchase it.
Pogo also brought the Rainbow Flag and Rainbow t-shirt back from the vault until Thursday, July 30th. #lovewins
