how can I beat level 300 in Garden Blast? I don’t think it’s fair that we can’t play random levels to get this badge
I totally agree, been stuck on the same level for months and months. guess I will not even attempt this one.
I also agree. I’ve been stuck on 300 for months and not even close to winning. Wish Pogo would stop using Garden Blast for challenges.
I am stuck on level 59, & have been for quite some time. Guess I won’t be doing this badge, nor the marathon since I activated it accidentally! 🙁
Warning: You can activate only one of these Challenges at a time, and once activated a Challenge cannot be deactivated — so it must be completed before a different Challenge can be activated. Choose wisely.
I was just wondering about this very thing. THANKS Frank for the reminder! Good Luck everyone and hope you have fun.
Patricia Schmidt says
Can’t get past 316 in Garden Blast. So much for the marathon!
you can repeat levels for the badge
You only get random levels in GB if you’ve completed all the regular levels, and even then what level you get is random and has to be completed before getting a different one.
I can’t get past level 59, so I won’t be doing the marathon, either, since I activated the badge accidentally! 🙁 So much for this marathon.
Mahjong Sanctuary: It says just flower tiles, but it credits only PAIRS of flower tiles. They do not have to be perfect match though.

Replay level 4 on Mahjong Sanctuary. I get the 4 matches then replay it, you don’t have to finish.
Thanks for thefo on Level 4. It worked great! You don’t have to finish the game.
Mickey Smithson says
Peggie Blast #5 is not showing on my pogo board.
i went to Peggle blast game and the peggle blast #5 badge is there so you can play it
You’re correct. Thank you so much.
The same games every time… we just did a ton of mahjong sanctuary and Quinn badges. I’m skipping this entire thing.
They send surveys out and we get the same results.
They aren’t even trying to pretend to care. Same challenges thrown at us over and over again, just more and more frequently now.
You are SO right. I don’t know why the heck they send us surveys, then don’t act on a darned thing we say. It sounds like many of us complain that the same badges are in marathons, challenges, mixie badges, everything! Even on the last short survey that only had 3-4 multiple choice questions about rewards, I used the “other” box to register my complaint, again. I’ve stopped buying badges as I have so many I haven’t completed—all in the same few games. Perhaps it’s time to write a corporate complaint. Silvija
Wow Quinn’s and Garden Blast ? This marathon is no bargain. This is the 2nd event this month alone that Quinn’s has been in an event.. So far this year Quinn’s has been a daily 12 times, a weekly 2 times and an event of one kind or another 6 times. Garden Blast has been a daily 7 times, a weekly 3 times and an event 6 times.
Too bad pogo doesn’t have more games to choose from. Yes, I am being sarcastic today. But with so many games to choose from, why these 2 pop up so often is not very reasonable. Just saying…….
Maybe they fired all their programmers and just keep copy-pasting the same code for the challenges, just insert new images. Which are also half-assed compared to the badges we used to get. There are a lot more badges, but they are a lot more boring than before. Very few visually interesting ones now.
I did 3 of them and would eventually get Quinn’s; but there is no point wasting the time since I would never get Garden Blast.
Same here, I’m on level 2xx in GB and I can’t get past it. I’m SO SO broke. I can’t afford any gems to buy any more power-ups. This will be the first marathon I didn’t finish. But no way can I get past GB, so I can’t do anymore. Oh well…so be it, I guess.
Cathy Y says
Hubby tried to get me to do his GB and he would do my Quinns. I will hold off doing GB until the last minute, as the others are not bad but just time consuming.. Plus if I wait another week or 2 for a MnM sale I can get 2 or more that give out more Pogis then the lousy 200 now.
Correction…. I did 4 of them. Phlinx, Peggle Blast, Mahjong Sanctuary — and even Poppit (a game that I hate).
I will not be doing Garden Blast. I hate that game. Do I really need the Victory Badge that bad? NO!!!!!
I was already resigned to the fact that I can not finish most events now.
This is the first year I have personals not completed (two GB and one risk).
Anything with Risk in it is a no for me. And I have been stuck on level 300 in GB
for way too long. After all my years of Club Pogo and faithfully doing everything
I could (over 16,000 badges), now I am happy with what I can get done.
John Williamson says
GB is almost impossible to win why can’t we redo levels over again ,this game sucks!!!
Paula C says
I’ll do 4 of them but certainly No Quinn’s or GB for me.
I love Garden Blast and am happy to help out if I can! Are we able to attach screenshots here? Or, maybe describe the levels they’re having trouble with?
No artwork here, Annie. But serious players are Welcome to visit The BH Community where they can get their questions answered WITH Screenshots!!
For GB, there are examples of most, if not all, levels on YouTube. Just go to youtube.com and in search type in garden blast and the level # you want. Most are done in sets of 10 but you can move forward to the area you need. Some of them have changed since they were initially done but most often they can provide some help.
Is that right?!! I just may have to check this out! THANKS Terry for this info.
The tutorial works for Phlinx, but the greens aren’t plentiful so a slog. That’s okay, I’m skipping GB and so sick of QA that I’m skipping that one too. 500 pogis aren’t worth the aggravation. 🙂
I don’t understand how pogo can assign the same amount of pogis for Quinns or GA as peggle blast or mahjong garden. It takes the same amount of time to win 1 game of quinns as the entire mahjong garden badge…
Donna H says
I am like most here. I will not even do the Garden Blast. Hate that game. I have said on every survey to do away with that game and Quinn’s. They are both just to hard and to time consuming. This set of badges is just not worth it for a few minor pogis.
I love the completion badge and I want it 😁 On the other hand I don’t like the challenges that much 😐 most are long and boring and then comes Quinn’s! Ugh!!! And not because of the game per se but the challenge, I wouldn’t mind having to win games or collect flowers or seasons or shells or else but lock tiles is the worse because it’s hard to find levels with locks and keys, you have to play a zillion levels before finding one level with locks and then more zillions to find enough locks to complete the challenge. I know I can replay random levels and click new game over and over until I find locks and play those only but that’s not how I like to play, I always try to tackle new levels to move forward in the story and through the different exhibits, replaying random levels doesn’t help me much right?
Well, better leave Quinn’s for last. We will see how it all turns out 😉
Glenn Banks says
My complaint is Garden Blast. When you get into the higher levels it’s exceedingly difficult to complete a game.
I agree totally. My question is what level do you think give you the most locks? haha crazy huh? I am level 82 and still don’t know the answer. I’m like you, been trying to finish current story but of course, no locks. Good luck <3
I wont even try to finish this. first time for that.
I also am not playing Beehive Marathon for all the reasons everyone has already said. I cannot win GB and forget the rest because time will run out with trying to win GB.
Have you already activated the GB challenge? If not, you can do the rest and ignore that one.
i used the daily puzzle today 5/23/23 to get my matching flowers for the badge.
Well although I haven’t finished 2 events in last 2 months, my first event fails ever…this will probably be my 3rd fail. Finished all but GB and astonishing I’ve gotten to 12/15 stuck now and for perpetuity level 300.
UPDATE: My husband and I completed this event !!! I sit here in utter shock LOL
