jungle gin

Pogo has skinned Jungle Gin and Bingo Luau to celebrate the season!

Jungle Gin has a nice summer theme:

Watch out for the (card?) sharks!

And Bingo Luau is all decked out for the 4th of July in red, white, and blue:

For badges that require you to earn X number of bingos on a certain color card, you can still earn them during the time this theme is active! The red cards are still red, the yellow cards are now white in the middle, and the green cards are now blue on the right.

Jungle Gin (thumbnail)Jungle Gin has been updated with a new background graphic for the summer. Instead of the same old jungle waterfall scene we’ve seen for years, it’s now got a view of the ocean (and sharks, and an island) from the inside of a hut.
