If you’re like us and just can’t wait to play Pictureka, here’s a sneak peek at the How to Play for the game. In addition, Hasbro has had a demo of the game on their web site for a while; it will give you a rough idea of how the game will be played. Of… Read more»
Play Slots with Mr. Monopoly
It looks like Pogo may be working on a new project, Monopoly Slots. We don’t have a lot of details at this point, but we’ll keep you posted. Imagine playing slots around the world with Mr. Monopoly (Uncle Moneybags, if you prefer) and the new “Here and Now” cities and themes. How fun!
Monopoly Release Date
We updated our last post about Monopoly’s release date with some new information we found in a Hasbro press release. It looks like Pogo’s version “will be available on September 3rd”. (Which could mean the game will be put into “Sneak Peek” mode next Tuesday the 26th, or the following Tuesday on the 2nd, or… Read more»
Sock Hop Slots is Just Ducky
We’ve gotten a sneak peek of Sock Hop Slots and we were surprised to find it isn’t really related to Showbiz Slots. It does, however, model the latest slots offerings from Pogo (like Ali Baba Slots and the special Spooky Slots) with a story mode and ranks and badges. It features a character named Ducky… Read more»
Team Bingo Resurfaces as “Everyone Wins” Bingo
Remember Team Bingo? It seemed to have fallen off the radar among protestations and yawns screaming “not another bingo game?!?” But just recently, Pogo’s artists created a badge that appears to be a weekly challenge badge for Team Bingo, depicting a squirrel tightly holding a gigantic acorn. Could it be the same acorn featured on… Read more»

The game will have 50 ranks and 5 badges (probably at ranks 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50) and it will be similar to Jigsaw Detective; you’ll be able to choose your difficulty… Read more»
Pogo’s artists have created five badges for the upcoming Hasbro Scrabble game. The badges are fairly plain — just a Scrabble logo with a couple of tiles on a red background — and the five badges only differ in which number is in the lower right corner (1, 2, 3, 4 or 5); so these… Read more»
Three New M-n-Ms
Here are three additional unreleased Mix-n-Match badges slated for future months. Most likely these are for Word Whomp (maybe Whackdown), Pop Fu, and First Class Solitaire (maybe).
Future Mix-n-Match Badges
We’ve just been shown some nice badges that have been created for a future Mix-n-Match release. There are fifteen large, non-animated badges (so these may be spread across two months’ worth of M-n-M’s) for Word Whomp (or maybe WW Whackdown), Thousand Island Solitaire, Texas Hold ’em Poker, Team Bingo, Squelchies, Pogo Bowl, Pinochle, Payday Freecell… Read more»
Crazy Cakes: Sneak Peek
We’ll admit we nearly jumped out of our chairs when we saw the headline of the latest Pogo Insider: “Exclusive Sneak Peak to a New Game!” (and of course we had to use the sneaky marketing ourselves, but with proper spelling). Sadly, it wasn’t so exclusive: just the tour page for Crazy Cakes.
