The word search badge you don’t actually have to click Random, even though it says you do. I got mine doing regular Calendar searches and gained rank progress too. Good Luck!
the higher difficulty level you play in jigsaw, the more tokens you get per puzzle. good luck e1!
For the word search badge, make sure you have it on easy. You can also right click on a letter, and all of those letters in the puzzle will be highlighted (right click on an L and all the L’s will highlight). This makes finding words that much simpler. If you do these two things, you should finish in no time. Good luck 🙂
Treasure hunt puzzles. I worked on medium. The frame pieces are always in the same place. I first placed the corner pieces then memorized where the pieces were for the sides and dragging the pieces after the corner to the next piece put together both sides then memorizing where the pieces were for the bottom frame put it together then the top. I was able to put any frame together in less than two minutes.
This works for both treasure hunt and Jigsaw detective – the frame pieces are always in the same place for both games..
I select puzzles that have very distinct top, middle and bottom sections which makes sorting of the inside pieces fast and easy i.e. a bridge that spans across the middle I would open the drawer and drag the sky pieces to the frame board. I would then go back to the inside pieces and staying on the board of inside pieces begin putting together the bridge and work down to the water. After these pieces are put together I drag them to the frame (this is i think 5 puzzle rows) and walla finish the puzzle.
I work the same one or two puzzles over and over in both treasure hunt and jigsaw detective (except the new puzzles in this monthj’s game). I generally finish the puzzles in less than 5 minutes on medium.

Hi All–wonderful day, huh?
Great Tip on Treasure Hunter Puzzle Badge!!! I don’t usually like to play this game…can ya guess why? THE TIMER!! YEP!! But with these tips I should be able to get the badge alot easier AND faster.
Thanks so much walla99362 for your help 🙂 Guess I’d better get to work, lol Can’t put it off any longer! Shouldn’t have as much trouble with this fine help!
Great site Lura!! It’s getting to where I come here FIRST thing every morning. 🙂
Seems I might be a bit “addicted” to your BadgeHungry!! Guess I’ve got a bad case of BadgeHungryitis? Hhmmmm? No cure, but that’s just fine with me, lol 🙂
See ya tomorrow morning, lol Have a wonderful day ALL. 🙂
Man! I wish I would have known about word search!! I hate it when Pogo puts out badges that don’t help you rank up :p
I really, REALLY hate either one of the Jigsaws so my goal was to get the badge ASAP. I found that I could complete puzzles faster ok easy (I could do 3 in the time of doing one on medium – not worth going higher for only 30 pieces. So if you wanna get the heck out, play ok easy. 😉

I just can’t seem to do the jigsaw puzzles very fast at all, and that is doing them on easy, and normal. LOL It hurts my eyes very much. Took me 2 to 4 hours just to get this badge plus a migraine headache. The word puzzle I did on medium and it still took no time at all. I do a quick visual scan and circle the words that jump out at me right quick and the rest follow pretty easyily. Good luck eveyone!!
