good luck all
Hi first time writing in, but I have been following badgehungry website since last fall.
My tips for flower daze are the following:
1. Play on hard level, you get more flowers per game
2. Click new game until you get a game that gives you orange flowers.
3. Use the change up if you get one to change others to orange.
also the flower daze challenge get more flowers on medium and hard levals too
oops sorry kathy #5 your post wasnt showing when I wrote my hints lol
Tri Peaks is going to be a long badge.
was going to say what courtneylyn already mentioned, but i click new game on hard level till i get a 5 or 6 in orange.
Does anyone know of a coupon code for the NEW album??
dawma: I don’t hold anything back from you guys, so if there is ever a coupon code it will be posted prominently on the home page.
If you’d like to discuss the PBA, or lack of coupon for it, feel free to do so on this thread:
badges look fun this wk,just takin me 2hrs 20 mins to get tri peaks done.gl e1
I must be missing something. I am playing hard and using my orange last, but hardly getting anything. I win games in hard and still only get 60 for orange. Am I missing something?
on flower daze u only get credit for the one’s on the game when it starts unless you change them with the power-up
they dont count if you change all too orange at end
If you hover your cursor over a numbered button all the available flowers of that colour will light up before you click on it. This will give you an idea of which colour will be most advantageous. Make sure that at the end of the game you still have some orange flowers left and at least 1 click left on the orange button. That will change all your colours to orange. If you run out of moves just start a new game. I have been working on HARD level and have won the game 3 times out of four. Very easy once you get the hang of it.
Good luck everone
I just finished Flower Daze and average 60 per game no matter what I did. 2 1/2 hrs!
for #13 snippet not really thats about what i get of orange most games playing on hard…gl
happy badge and hump day all gl with ur badges! hagd beth
snippet17 #13 – You aren’t missing anything. The average does seem to be about 65 for me. The starting number of orange flowers determines the number you can convert. However, use your power-ups to add more orange flowers to the board. That will increase your score a little.
You need to convert 2,500 unopened orange flowers. There is a power-up where you can convert unopened flowers to a different color. If you are lucky to get it you can then change it to orange for more credit.
I had to share a little Challenge Day story I found amusing. I’ve been playing Flower Daze and two players who are obviously friends are chatting. The gist of their conversation is telling everyone who enters the room to skip any games that have no orange flowers. Okay, fine, good. The next chapter goes like this:
Player One: Finished!
Player Two: WTG!! I’m almost done too
Player One: I wish they’d make these challenges harder, that was too easy.
Player Two: I know! And I’m never going to get anywhere in this game – wanna stay and play for ranks?
Um. Coulda covered both of those bases and not skipped the games with orange flowers, LMAO.
that’s funny kiki #20 lol
I see that alot, people so focused on the badge and lose sight of the game and the fun, me included, I am trying to make more fun for non badge games that I just enjoy to play with friend, like the reason I ever started playing on pogo in the first place!
tce1 and gl
I can’t wait to do tri peaks as it is my favorite game at the moment, as for flower daze, not sure if i will be able to get that one as I can’t seem to get it to load or if it does I get booted shortly after it loads. I have tried to load it like 10 times already today. i am beyond frustrated, and I have tried to do everything I know how to try and get it to load….
I did the Tri-Peaks first b/c I really like the game. It took me about 4 hours.
I have never played Flower Daze, usually don’t play a new game until the first badge is released. I’ve been playing for about 30 minutes and have 379/2500. I’m still playing on easy until I get the hang of it. I think it’s a hoot, don’t know that I’ll put in on my list to rank out in, but it’s okay.
Good Luck Everyone!!
I feel sorry for people that don’t know how to play Flower Daze or don’t like it. I like it and am almost rank 17, have 1000/2500 for the badge. My pet peeve on badge day is when people come into a room and the first thing they say is “what we gotta do to get this badge” . I try to learn how to play all the new games because I know there will be a challenge for it. Sometimes I have to read “how to play” several times on some games. Hard to explain the whole game in chat box.
Hi everyone, hope you badge day is going well. Loved both challenges today as I enjoy playing both games. Tri Peaks is my all time favorite but haven’t played in awhile as I am working on other games. It was fun to just relax and play with no pressure and just enjoy myself. Was a long challenge, to be sure but Pogo Fibbers are at it again saying they got it in less than 1 hr.
I am at rank 36 in Flowers and guys, it’s really easier to play on hard. Doesn’t take long to master and in my humble opinion, another relaxing game, don’t have to use excessive brain power. I would be happy to help anyone that is having a problem understanding the game, just shoot me pogo mail and I’ll be happy to help. Just play around with it and promise, you’ll get it.
Couldn’t agree with you more gracie #21, I too can lose site of playing the games for the fun and enjoyment of the game and a badge as a bonus. I also fell into the trap of lets get the challenges done as soon as possible! For what? I have a week to finish, if I choose, but it is fun to justify a day off from everything on badge day.
Enjoy your games, they are just games made for enjoyment after all.
I have to say I was ready to play TriPeaks again. It has always been one of my favorite games, but I totally turned off it after that last Challenge-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named! lol wtg on getting it Suz (Moms #23) and thx for letting me know how long it took you. I just got about a quarter of it done and it took me about an hour, so it sounds like I’m on the same schedule as you. I had quite a few MnMs & premium album TP badges backed up, too, so I’m happily clearing some of those out also.
Just finished my Poppit – but am still going for the 4000 prizes challenge in one of the premium albums. Duh. lol
I really like Flower Daze and can’t wait to do that challenge, too. Haven’t had much time to play anything lately – so will be fun to take some time with a game I like.
Good luck everyone!
Well they weren’t difficult this week, just a test of endurance I’ll say. Glad they give a week. Make sure if you don’t like complaining, turn your chat off lol
Well, got my badges done for the week, now off to 2nd account (sigh).
Got to rank 9 in flower daze, so, guess i will need to get rank 10 in there soon. GL ALL
I have a problem with flowerdaze. I can’t hit new game as it is not on my screen nor can i choose what to play on. does anyone else have this problem?
Don’t forget to use your powerups, even if you don’t have to!
Yes, Flower Daze fills up my whole screen. I have no chat, no options, I just play until it says game over or no more moves. What’s up???
pedoro # 29 – It’s right above the list of names. If it’s not there it sounds like your game is not loading correctly.
pedoro #29, you need to change your screen resolution. Set it at 1024 x 768 or higher.
I agree with mspatmac #25 flower daze is easier on hard.
There are directions under How to Play (Gameplay) on how to change your screen resolution.
Oh no. 2nd account. This dont look too promising.
So I go to Daze for first time and find the ‘game area’ is the same size as all the other games. Just surrounded by a bunch of shtuff. There is no benefit to this.
With Risk and Clue the ‘game area’ size is larger, this is beneficial.
Just went back to Dazed and Confused to see what hard level looks like. Well, clearly I will never earn any badge in this game.
YIKES! It’s 1:23 a.m. (CDT), and Pogo just announced a shut down in 15 minutes. Any news on why there’s a shut down on badge challenge night? The shut down is usually in the early a.m. on Mondays/Tuesdays… hmmm!
Pogo just closed down. Anyone know why this happened & so early. (11:45 pm)
They must have done a techie fix, were only down about 10 minutes, but by then, i was ready for bed. LOL
I’ve been getting about 60 orange flowers per game on hard as well. It’s not a particularly difficult game but the help screens could be a bit more helpful. In particular, the help screens don’t go into much detail about the power-ups. Click and learn the power-ups I guess.
okladyplayer #24 I agree with you. I do not like on badge day when one after another player comes into the room and asks “what do I need to do to get this badge?”
Some games are too hard to explain and then there have been times when I spend a great deal of time trying and I receive no ty and they say it is too hard and leave the room.
I have started going and playing a new game on Tuesday night to try and understand it a little before it comes out for a badge on Wednesday. And yes, I usually read and try to understand the pogo directions for the game.
Still trying to figure out flower daze…may switch to hard since that has been suggested here many times. I will also try some of the suggestions from above, thanks everyone for posting them.
I agree with wheat #40. Someone popped into flower daze last nite and asked How do You Play? My reply was to please read the How to Play and then get back with any questions you may have. The return reply was anger and disrespect. That is not in any way necessary, wanting something for nothing. I too read all instructions, bring the playing field up, and try until I get the hang of the game. That is the way I was brought up. Makes me wonder about family values and anger management when I see the hostilty some express. So sad.
I nearly fell asleep yesterday evening with Flower Daze. However, what woke me up was a comment somebody made in chat. This player typed, “waters flower garden with herbicide” and I broke out into a fit of laughter. I just wanted to get that badge out of the way because the game is mellow – too mellow – and I wish that hippy would take a shower and get a job. He just looks creepy.
I’m prepared to go home from the office and continue with the Tri-Peaks badge. I think I left home this morning with about 50% of the badge completed. I’m still not feeling any twitching, muscle spasms or undesired side-effects from the Challenge-Which-Should-Not-Be-Named. Good luck, everybody!
Have all the badges done for my main account and working on the last one for my secondary account. And then I have a couple of friends to help out. I’m going to be “flowered out” by next week….LOL
This is a bit off topic but I have seen it mentioned several times now so hope it is okay to ask. I am wondering on secondary account ~ do you pay for it? I am down to my last freebie that Lura has provided (thank you Lura!) so how do you keep it going especially if challenges are club only? coke rewards, other ways, any ideas appreciated! thanks!
On these challenges, I am taking my time and loving it, may drive my friend batty but they can rank up while I am chilling lol. My average on the flower daze so far is 65 on hard level and I did find that easier too than easy, go figure. I have not started Tri-Peaks yet but I love that game and looking forward to ranking up and finally getting hummingbird badge and possibly more, that is alot of peaks! but still I’m going to chill 🙂 Not done with poppit yet and have seen late at night that it is most popular game (weeks before this challenge) with regard to amount of people playing it. It’s fun to guess which little prize comes out of what game but some I don’t recognize yet, like mermaid and merman.
tce1 and have fun!
gracie: feel free to come back and ask your question about secondary accounts to the whole crew during a weekend open thread — by Thursdays, not many people visit the comments in the weekly challenge thread anymore and you’ll have a larger audience that way. 🙂
Lura, thank you I will do so! great idea 🙂
For flower daze, you do not have to just change them all at the end to orange to get all the credit. Get as many orange all along the game and you will get more then 60 points. Also use the powers up to change to orange also. Each time you change they count as points. You do not have to win the game.
okladyplayer #24 – “I feel sorry for people that don’t know how to play Flower Daze or don’t like it.” I think that’s somewhat mean to say if someone doesn’t like a particular game. Now I do agree with it being an annoyance when someone comes in and doesn’t know how to play. The obvious thing to do is click ‘How To Play’ and gather as much info on it then try, but if you’ve already tried the game, don’t prefer it, who’s to say you should feel sorry for them? Everyone has different interests. I for one have a few games that I have no interest in ever playing, even when a badge comes out for them… Oh well… C’est la vie.
Generally, i do not hold ALL the orange to the very end, but, I do try to keep a balance in the numbers for each color. For instance, if I am issued a 7,5,5,4,5,1 I look for more options to get to the color that has the 7 and use it. If a color has only a 1, obviously i try not to hit it until at or near the end. I also try to aid it if necessary with a power-up. If it is more equal, such as 5,5,4,4,4,3 I try to get to a point where it is 3,3,3,3,3,3–but, this is not always possible in the color scheme. By the time I am 2,2,2,2,2,2–I usually have the power-up and am plotting. This is also a great place to return to if power-up arrives and the UNDO button has to be used and a win assured. Yes, I get bored at times, so I play it in small doses. The one good thing is that winning gives maximum progress toward rank, but, even losing gives you a few game points, or a minimum toward rank. It is not all or nothing. To check each game for progress, click on the current hippie button. A win gives ya 10 or more rank points; a loss gives ya 2-3 points from what I have seen, depending on the bonusses accrued. It will give ya an update such as 62 game points till next rank. GL to all still working on it.
I haven’t figured out the 3rd power up. To be used against an obstacle?? I did read and reread the How to Play but found no reference to any obstacles and/or how to activate the power up. Thanks in advance for any possible help.
#25 mspatmac, glad to know I wasn’t the only one that thought someone stating they got tri-peaks badge in an hour was fibbing! I figure you’re doing good to finish a hand within 1 minute, with that, even if you won EVERY hand you would only have 180 peaks in an hour. I don’t know about you, but I don’t know anyone that wins EVERY hand! Makes you wonder why people need to fib about such a thing.
I’m about halfway on TriP & Flower Daze, finished Poppit for my acct but also have hubbys weekly & Poppit to do since my puter monitor died & I’m using his laptop. GG to all who regularly keep up with 2 or more accounts all the time, I don’t know how you do it without getting sick of Pogo!!
I wish Flower Daze gave 10 rank points for a win! lol For a win on hard you get 6 points and a win on med gets you 4 points.
I posted the following on a weekend thread a few weeks ago, it works for me but might not for everyone….
I have always played on Hard up until recently. When they changed the rank points earned for a win it got me thinking about how long it takes me to play a game and how many rank points I get for doing so. I done some time trials and here’s my results…lol.
I usually play a hard game in about 2.20-2.30 and get 6 rank points for it. I can play a med game in 1.10-1.20 and get 4 rank points for it.
I then played 2 med games back to back a few times and it took about 2.45-2.50 (because of the few secs between games) and I got 8 rank points total for the 2 games. So to me the extra secs get me 2 rank points! Also I am playing 2 games rather than 1 so that’s an extra game played for the ‘play 5000 games’ badge and for the badge that asks you to win using power ups.
The power up you talk about refers to the little ‘peace’ signs that are scattered about the playing field. If you click on the powerup then on any of the peace signs it will change them all to the same colour as the open flowers on the board.
to #50 – RV60
I really like this power up although it does not seem that you get it very often.
You use the 3rd power up to color in the clear flowers. When you want to use it, point it at one of the clear flowers and all the clear ones will fill in. Whereever there is a clear flower, it will fill in linking those parts of the board together. Hope that this makes sense. Give it a try the next time you get it – you will be happily surprised.
Take care all!
This may have been discussed previously, but I just found out that if play a game of Flower Daze until there are no more moves and it gives you the screen that says “new game” or “undo”, if you click “new game” you still get rank points. The rank points given are half of the rank points you would get if you won, listed below:
Easy – 1 rank point
Medium – 2 rank points
Hard – 3 rank points
This is good for me because I play on hard and lose a lot more times than I win, and every time I lose I get 3 points!!
GM BHers! I absolutely loved doing Flower Daze, yes, it IS very mellow, but that serves me just right. My opinion, only. No one is here during the day, it’s nice and quiet and just seems to go with the flow of this badge. I started yest. afternoon and just got the badge now @ 8:00 a.m., Friday. Now on to the Tri-Peaks and my Personal. I CANNOT wait for Thousand Island Solitaire, just wish I had an MnM to go with it, but, I’ve used them all, sometimes twice, love that game, too! :-D. OH, I played all my FD on hard skill, too, can’t believe all the players in the room complaining over and over about the same thing, saying it was formatted for a 4 yr. old, but still couldn’t understand it! LOL!. Have a wonderful weekend all n GL to ev1, no matter what badges you’re doing or albums. GBUA, Carol C.
Thanks Shelley #53 and Jeannie #54. That helps a lot.
Hi all. For Flower Daze you can hit New Game until you see some orange flowers. For Tri Peaks just keep plugging along, it will take awhile because there are only 3 peaks per hand. Good Luck All.
HELP. I cannot get into Flower Daze (among others). I get a message that says : “A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now or you can continue to see if the script will complete.” I cannot get into several games that have (I presume) more complicated graphics, such as Yahtzee, Flower Daze, etc.
When Flower Daze first came out, I did not have this problem. Does anyone know what is happening to me????? Do I have a worm or virus, or is something missing? I have removed Java, and then re-loaded it, and it has not solved the problem.
I cannot get my Flower Daze badge for this week, and my time is running out.
This is a message for keileplayer comment #59…the same things happen to me when I wanted to play puck peak and another time another game I could not get in at all. The following week when pogo updated things were working again. I had live chats with them, & they were trying to say it was my computer, but in the end it must have been them.
@keileplayer Sounds like a browser issue. Sorry to sound like tech support, but without more information (like what system are you using, what browser, memory, what kind of internet, ect) there isn’t much any of us can do to help you so quickly. That’s why Pogo asks for all that when you contact them, which is worth a shot, although completely hit or miss based on the CS rep you get.
My first impressions – you aren’t getting the whole script, so any of the following could be the problem: Pogo bumped something during the Tuesday update that your computer can’t overcome, your browser can’t read the whole script, the internet is too slow/too pegged out and it is timing out on the script, too little memory or cache to get it, you updated your computer or firewall or virus software or browser and it is not incompatible or blocking all the functions of the script… that’s just what I can come up with on 4 hours of sleep based only on the comment the script is stalled… if there is more to it, there are a lot more things it could be.
I cringe when I hear *removing java* it’s not that easy and if you are on Windows, unless you really know what you are doing and going into the register, you’re not really getting it all and there is hardly any point. A clean install of THE WHOLE SYSTEM is one thing… just one component so integrated, not going to happen. Reinstalling has a better chance of working but has more potential to do harm than good. Please just don’t do that.
I hope I’m not coming off cranky, haven’t been sleeping well this whole week and I apologize, I love to help people, I’ve got a lot of computer training but I’m no computer specialist. (I just built them to put myself through grad school.) I would love, and enjoy, posting complete step by step solutions to problems, but I want to put a huge disclaimer that you have to tell us all you know. I want to help so badly, but all the information I ever see posted is *it’s broken, it won’t load* and that gives any of us, those who could help or maybe seen the same error, zero information.
MomsB guilted me into posting, so here is my brain dump… 😛
ok so i have already gotten my badges this week, but i did have a question about flower daze. There is a power up that changes whichever color you pick to the currant color that you have open. Now my question is how do i use this so it actually helps me? It seems when i would get it, i would have 1 move left on each color. So then trying to use it, it would change say the yellow to red, but then when i change the reds to blue those reds that werent open (and had been converted from yellow) are still red (and closed) and now i have no moves on the red flower. So how can i use that power up effectively?
Thanks Gecko 🙂
vegas #62 – You have to undo your moves until you have 2 moves left on a color to use that power up. If you can’t undo your moves and still keep the power up then you really can’t use it.
#63 momsbassethound – ahhh ty, its no wonder i can never use it lol
BadgeHungry rocks! because YOU ALL rock!!!
I have completed TriP and personal. Flower daze -57 of 2500 😀 Poppit – 919/1500
After i went back to FD some of y’all’s advice started to gel. (Yes, I said y’all’s.) So I will be trying that game again next time pogo has a challenge for it.
I have 99 badges now – about to reach 1st milestone.
Gecko #61 – I don’t really know how to tell you just how cool and useful I think this post is. .. um ok, that’s it, I just did.
Frank – you are a gift to BH as well.
Tomorrow is Wednesday, hee hee, gl
Badge day tomorrow. Good luck everybody a day early.
When you remove Java…you have to restart your computer before you reload it back on. I found that out the hard way a few weeks ago. I removed and then reloaded Java but did not restart before I reloaded. Guess what? The same problem was still there.
A very nice CS Rep on live chat helped me. I am not sure that is your problem with FD or the other games that won’t load but I think it might be worth a try.
