I have spent the last three nights playing games at pogo.com and can't seem to get enough of it. I like playing mahjong and have completed two quests so far. I have also played scrabble blast and bejeweled but seem to work my way back to mahjong. My right hand hurt last night for clicking the mouse so much, I had to stop. Just as well it was well after midnight and I should of gone to bed earlier. I know there are quite a few pogo.com players on mylot. What are your favourite games and how often do you play? do you spend hours playing games there too? Thanks for sharing.

I am still fairly new to the site and am not sure what the badges are or mean. I'll just stick to playing the free games for now and maybe I might upgrade at a later date. Thanks dvschic and the others for your comments.

Sometimes I do spend too much time on pogo! I love word whomp, mahjong gardens and rainy day spider solitaire.....I play everyday for at least a while and longer on some weekends. The time varies.

I have been spending most of my time playing games on iwon.com so I can enter my token into daily, weekly, monthly and annual sweepstakes. It wasn't until recently that I found you can do the same thing with Pogo. So I play a few iwon games (usually word games) and then split my screen while I play Netwinner on one and Poppit on the other. I do love the game Mah Jong. It is addicting. iwon has a Mag John letter scramble but you only get points if you complete the puzzle and that means using every letter with no tiles remaining. I have to try and get away from games for awhile. I have to focus on my writing. I have the opportunity to meet an agent on March 1st so I need to get my my manuscript ready for that day.

I remember plahing on iwon.com a year ago too and have forgotten about that site. I am also registered with Netwinner but seem to lose interest quickly lol I am not sure about earning tokens and such yet as I have only played the free games. Good luck with your writing Pat, I enjoy reading your articles!

LoL! Pogo is VERY addictive, can't say I didn't warn you lol. My name on pogo is PurpleTeddyBearr I had to do the double r at the end because at the time I got the name the proper spelling (like my mylot name) was taken!

My favorite games on Pogo.com would have to be firs class solitaire and poppit, keno,and slingo. They have lots of fun games on there to play. I have played many hours on that site and usually when I get the chance.

I'm wading through the new game reward levels on Canasta. Tell me about the time factor... I've spent hours in there working from rank 50 to 74, and there's lots to go yet. I love the game though and made it a goal to get to rank 100. I also like Qwerty a lot, and the two newish ones, namely Word Search Daily, and Kenopop. I've been in there a few times too! lol. I was dreading Quick Quack this week, after that last gruelling challenge, but it wasn't nearly so bad, and I got through it quite quickly this time. Brightest Blessings.

I don't get on that often anymore and when I do its on my moms account because I do not have my own. But when i used to play a lot my favorite game was penguin blocks and sweet tooth. I loved those games and could play them all the time, oh yeah and that duck one where you have to do it by numbers and colors...don't know the name because it was really brand new when I last played. Haha, I do the stay up late things with other online games, not pogo though. it really is fun. if your hands are hurting you do some wrist and hand exercises before you go to bed, when you wake up, and while you are playing. It will help.

I'm about obsessed with pogo.com. I have to get all the badge challenges and I'm working on completing the ones that were out before I joined. My favorite game changes all the time, although I love most of the games. It's a great site - and not that expensive to join.

I love pogo.com but I rarely go after badge I just play for the fun of it. The only game I like going after them is turbo 21 because that is the most addicting game on pogo.com I play that game for more then 2 hours a day probally I really dont time my self Im just taking a guess on how many hours I play lol. But most days thats all I play.

I use to love playing games online in my spare time, but I got burnrt out after a while. I found out that I was not accomplishing anything. I would try to beat the high scores and win money too. When I realized that I was not going to accoplish that, I gave up. Now I spend all of my free time on Mylot.

I sometimes get bored with mylot so I go and play games there. Its usually at night though as I try to get done with all the mylot discussions during the day and then head to pogo.com at night after Maddy is in bed :D:D

I used to play Pogo's games a lot, and used to love them so much! I totally agree with you, that it's so difficult to say "no" n' stay away from the computer. My favourite game was and is "Bejeweled" (all the parts of it). I wonder, that those "small" games can suck the mind in so much. I love playing copmputer games, and sometimes i wonder that proper PC games - many of them - can't offer even the half of the fun n' joy that offer these small funny games; the other good n' positive thing that everyone can play - it's so simple to understand and fall in love with these games.

I agree with you there regarding the PC games vs online games. I know I am going to enjoy playing their often!

Yes, I was a Pogo addict until I discovered Yuwie and MyLot... Now I find I only go in between, when I need a game break. Pogo is another wonderful place to make friends and maybe, if you're lucky, win a jackpot! Good Luck!

I used to play pogo all the time. I was addicted to the bubble popping game. And the pyramid solitarie. I would play for hours and hours. I really don't have the time to know because I work long hours (used to be a stay at home mom). I also used to play at slingo.com.... Love that too!

I am a pogo nut. I need to go to meetings for people addicted to pogo my hubby tells me. I'm on the hunt right now at my walmart for the deluxe games that pogo has out but no such luck yet. I bought Lottso deluxe when it come out, but I bought it from pogo. I'd rather own the game myself but it seems as I might have to buy the rest from pogo too. I bounce around in the games. I play one for so long and then I get bored so I find a new game. I've been playing keno pop the last few days and almost made it to rank 50 :)

Shooter, I have a friend in Vermont who buys her games at Walmart or KMart. I'm not entirely sure which, but don't give up hope... I'm sure you can find them somewhere. Brightest Blessings and happy hunting.
