My hubby and I have been playing games quite a bit this week. And one of our favorite games is Scrabble. But I SUCK at the game LOL. I don’t know a lot of words and I’m not good at ‘taking tests’ and being put on the spot. If I get a little anxious my brain freezes and I can’t think. SO I thought I’d do a search for online Scrabble or Scrabble like games and try to get better and learn some words too. Pogo.com came up in the search. I had completely forgotten about it!! I know several of you frequent there and have talked about it before - but I wasn’t online a lot then and didn‘t think much of it. Well I signed up and I LOVE it there!!! So far I’ve only played a couple of different word games and haven’t done much else. So if you could, my friends please tell me your favorite games and anything else I might want to know about it there.

Oh, I just LOVE pogo.com. I am a club member now after having been a free member for years. I love working on the badges, it's really cool. If you just signed up as a free member and want to try the club member for free for a week (I think that's how long it is) I can send you a free pass. ENJOY! And feel free to look me up when you're there!

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you - work is a bit hectic right now... If you look at the top where it says My Stuff, My Mini is in there. You can do all kinds of neat stuff with it!

That's no problem :) I don't that option though. I have "HOME", "MY FRIENDS", "POGO NEWS", "PRIZES", "CLUB POGO" & "DOWNLOADS". I wonder why that is??

I love pogo.com that is where I am on the most lol. Its deffintley addicting so addicting that it kept me off this forum for a few months. Im not into the word games since I find them very hard. my favorite games are turbo 21 addicting game that gets you a lot of tokens. Pogo bowl fun game if you like bowling. And 3 point show down which is a fun game that gets you a lot of tokens if your good at it or not.

I used to be a serious Pogo Addict! That is, when I had a membership for a couple of years. I still have my free account through aol so if you want to look me up just use my screen name cuz it's the same as my email. Ever since I started working I just don't have enough time to play to make it worth paying for a member account.... initially, my mom bought me a 6 month pass and I had to continue it! I so miss the minis, mini mall and challenges/badges! You can't see or use them as a non-member but they give it all back if/when you re-join. "MAYBE I WILL, SOMEDAY." Some of my favorite games were Jungle Gin, Shuffle Bump, Poppa Zoppa, Qwerty & Lottso.... just to name a few ; ) I'm not even sure which ones I can still play for free = (

You can enter the prize drawings with your tokens, or dress up your mini.

I absolutely LOVE pogo!!! My favorite game is Dice City Roller on the "premium" games.. i have sooooo much fun with that. I really like Poppit and scrabble in the regular games. If you like scrabble and want to make some new words, try the word whomp! It'll definately get your scrabble game up!

word whomp is the way to go...you can get a lot of different words you normally wouldn't think of..and they have a lot of repetition..also try literati on yahoo games..good luck...hope you win the jackpot..being playing for 5-6 years and never got it..but oh well

Thank you both :) Word Whomp was one I've played - it's HARD but challenging and I agree - it'll help my game :) I'll try that one on yahoo games too - thanks! I don't expect to get any jackpot...but better Scrabble scores LOL. Though I'd like to wish all good luck on getting it too!

Oh you poor thing lol ~ you have just given up all your spare time. Pogo is so addicting. Its bad when you have the free membership, but when you upgrade and become a club pogo member and have access to all the games and badges, look out LOL. I normally dont pay for things on the internet but I can't help but pay for pogo. I pay 40.00 a year, plus the cost of my gems and what not that I buy seperate. I can't live without pogo LOL

I'm a bit late with my contribution to this discussion but as I've just added you to my friends list, I decided to look out some of your discussions... as you do! lol. I have been a member of Pogo for many years now, and it's where I met my longest standing friends on the Internet. I love the games, especially card and word games. I think Hearts is still my favourite, followed by Canasta, Qwerty, Jigsaw Detective, Spades, Euchre... hmmmm and Dominoes. I can play all of these on my own, against the Bots, so when I want to chill out, I head off to one of them. I enjoy the weekly challenges and buy most of the Premier Albums, and have now accumulated a horde of badges. I have two accounts there, one is Moonchild031, which my son seems to have taken over and the current one which I use is LoveInTheMist6, so please look me up, any time. I don't think you can beat Pogo for games. I belong to Slingo as well, which is ok for a change, but Pogo Rules in my book! Brightest Blessings.

I love POGO i joined club pogo. so i could do the weekly badges so i dont get sick of playing the same games all the time. with the weekly badges you do different games every week. I like most of them. there are a few i dont like but when the badges come around i still do them. HAVE A GREAT DAY/NIGHT
