We recently bought a laptop and sold our desk top. And Im sure most people know what type of mouse laptops have. Ours is one of the ones you have to use your finger tips to move the arrow. And not I have no idea how to play games that you have to drag the mouse. Because I dont know how to drag this kind of mouse. So there are a few games I cant play on POGO.COM like this weeks bowling challenge. This really has me upset.

My husband recently bought a laptop too. And when I tried to use it, I had a difficult time trying to control the cursor. Fortunately, there's a USB port for the traditional mouse. So, whenever I use his laptop because downloading is way much faster compared to our old desktop, I still hook up the traditional mouse. He keeps encouraging me to practice using the "flat" mouse of the laptop, but I don't have the time to do the practice. Time flies so fast and I won't waste it by trying to find where the cursor went to.

Hi Lifez2short! So sorry to hear that you will be missing some of the games. I have heard or rather read a lot about Pogo and how enjoyable it seems especially with you. haha.. Never tried it because don't really have much time or if I tried once, I might get hooked. haha.. I hope you will soon learn how to drag the mouse so you can enjoy playing all the games soon. Take care and have a nice day.

POGO can be addictive but fun. I can send you a free weeks guest pass if you would like to try it. Let me know in a PM cause I would need your email address.

I have a pc so I don't have this problem. I'm pretty sure that they have some kind of usb port that you can plug a mouse into for a laptop! PurpleTeddyBear.

I used to have the same problem with the computer owned by my younger brother where I play a lot of games, but I love the zuma games in particular. I was used to using the computer with the movable mouse, but since he replaced his computer with a laptop with no movable mouse attached; I lost interest in playing games with his laptop. Good thing I have a computer here in my workplace in the office. I'm back to playing free online games again, if I'm not into myLotting. Because myLot has taken a lot of my time and I do enjoy it.

We do have a laptop but never use it. It's old now and so outdated but it does have the same kind of mouse you described. It was an awful experience. I don't blame you for being upset.

Sorry to hear you can't play some of the games. I have a laptop and when I got mine I went and bought a wireless mouse that plugs into one of the USB ports. You may want to look into one of those. They are so much nicer than the corded ones because you don't have the cord to deal with. Since I got my wireless mouse, I don't think I have used the built in one at all.
