Did you take the six-question survey? If so, let us know what you thought of the survey.
One of the questions was “Which of the following terms BEST describes a game that has a shorter timed play round than the original version of the game and allows you to compete for high scores against your friends. For example, if Tetris had a competitive one minute version of their classic game, which name would best describe it? Tetris Blast? Tetris Blitz? etc.”
Pogo could just be re-naming the Pogo.com versions of their Poppit Sprint or Scrabble Sprint on Facebook, but let’s pretend they could be re-inventing one of their other popular games. Do you have any ideas (or wishes) on which game they could be reinventing in this short, timed format?
The worst concept would be Monopoly Sprint. There is only one die, one property, a jail square, and a “Go to Jail” Square.
I just took the survey and…I hope it’s Poppit Sprint! I am so addicted to this game;) I wouldn’t mind if it was Scrabble Sprint though. On Face Book it says Alpha under the Scrabble Sprint title so I am guessing that it will probably be the next one out at Pogo. But only time will tell;)
I hope Poppit Sprint. I would love to play it with ranks.
Please no more balloon games!
I’d love a card game that you can play against players where everyone plays at once. Like crazy Uno or something.
But Pogo has this fascination with Poppit, so my guess it will be something related to it.
Uno would be great!!
I’m thinking Poppit Sprint. It is a fun game, far from boring (imo) since each game is so short. I’d like to see some ranks/badges for the game. (Just wish the pc didn’t run so much while playing it!)
…but again, Uno would be even better! LOL …or any *new* game.
Where is Mr Potato Head lol like I really want to see another kids game maybe thats what there working on.
My favorite question of the survey: “Which of the below best describes your gender?” lollll
Frank, your Monopoly Sprint was hysterical.
I definitely think this sounds like Poppit and/or Poppit Sprint. And once I thought that, I’m having trouble thinking of another game it could be. I am confused why they would want to re-name it, though, unless the name hasn’t produced the results they wanted on FB.
Where did they post the survey – just FB? Or was it on Pogo News? Just curious.
sounds like poppit sprint could be about to leave the dark side & head on over to pogoland
not a fan of poppit but love poppit sprint – am hoping that the lag on the game is due to playing it thru fb
can’t wait :)
How about Mahjong Sprint? See how many (unlimited) tiles you could clear within one minute. For power ups, they could have tiles with bombs on them.
They mentioned Tetris in their survey. Since they have Pucks’ Peak which is similar to that… could it be a sprint in Puck’s Peak???
Serena – You may be happy to know that there is a version of Mahjong Garden with “bombs” in them. Actually, they’re lightning tiles and they’re available in the Pogo premium download, Mahjong Garden Deluxe. The lightning tiles will eliminate all tiles of the board withe the same glyph. :)
I’m voting for Tri Peaks Blitz- complete one walk across the bridge and get a freakin badge!!!
I took survey, but not sure how to answer this, because Pogo will probably come off the wall with a cliff-hanger surprise twist that none of us thought of ;)
Being a word nerd, I would LOVE to see Scrabble Sprint on Pogo & they could name it Gobbeldy-Goop-Splash-Bang-Bop for all I care, as long as they get it on Pogo…but only if it’s withOUT the lag I get on FB!
On a somewhat related note, one of the answers in the survey included “blitz”. Today I received an e-mail regarding the release of Bejeweled Blitz. Club Pogo does not offer Bejeweled as a game for their general suite of games. However, Bejeweled is included in its deluxe downloads and the “Cash Games” section sponsored by WorldWinner.
I created a Facebook account just so I could try Poppit Sprint without all the junk from the Facebook app ending up all over my wall (or my friend’s walls). I have to say: as unexcited as I was for another balloon-popping game, I really liked it. I’ll be happy when it’s on Pogo, but I think it would be weird if they changed the name. Why not leave it as it is? I can’t imagine that’s something they’d do, so I’m kind of assuming the survey is about a different game. I’m not sure about games they already have, but I’d LOVE a fast-paced version of Uno, as someone mentioned before. There’s a version of it on xbox360 called Uno Rush that is a lot of fun.
