Weekend Open Thread

Pogo Mini: Deer, you're safe this week.Happy Weekend Everyone!

It’s time for Thanksgiving again, and it’s become a tradition for us to share our gratitude during the pre-Thanksgiving weekend open thread. I’m glad you’re here to share with us this year.

What about Pogo are you thankful for?

If you’re looking for some inspiration, we discussed this same thing in 2013, 2012, and 2011 too.

Every week more and more Pogo fans are coming to BadgeHungry for their Pogo news and information! Welcome! For those of you who are new here: the weekend open thread is a weekly feature here every Friday afternoon through Sunday evening. I almost always ask a question, so even if you’re shy about joining in you’ll have something to talk about. But don’t let that stop you from discussing anything Pogo-related that’s on your mind. The Weekend Open Thread is Open!

See you in the comments!

MyCokeRewardsPogo rewards will not be offered next year through MyCokeRewards. This information comes straight from the Pogo help site entry for MyCokeRewards, which reads:

Note: Starting January 1, 2015, Club Pogo subscriptions (1-month, 3-month and 6-month options) will no longer be offered as rewards options in the My Coke Rewards program. Any Club Pogo Game Time subscription codes obtained previous to this date will still be valid until the codes’ original expiration date of January 31, 2015. Any codes not redeemed by January 31, 2015 will expire. For information on how to apply codes, see http://help.ea.com/en/article/how-do-i-redeem-apply-my-pogo-coupon-or-membership-time-code/.

Be sure you redeem any Pogo subscription codes you have by January 31, 2015, and if you have MyCokeRewards points sitting in your account that you want to use on MyCokeRewards, redeem them before January 1, 2015.

For anyone who doesn’t know how MyCokeRewards works, here’s a primer that explains how to get free Club Pogo time from MyCokeRewards…until January 1st, 2015.

For those of you who have been using MyCokeRewards for your Club Pogo subscriptions, there are alternatives listed on the Free Pogo Stuff page.

I recommend GiftHulk for free Pogo subscriptions and Swagbucks for free Pogo Gems.

Upcoming Mix-n-Magic/Mix-n-Match BadgeTake a peek at some of the upcoming Mix-n-Magic badges. As you’re looking at these, remember they will be available early through the Mix-n-Magic game but will be released 3 months later as regular Mix-n-Match badges. These badges were designed in sets of three to tell a story, but each set has badges in different games, so feel free to use the comments to guess which games these badges will be in, but also guess which badges might go together in a common theme.

It’s safe to assume not every badge from every themed set is pictured here and that they are not all in order, this is just a starter peek to whet our appetite.

Share your guesses on these badges and Mix-n-Magic themes in a comment below. If you want to discuss the idea of Mix-n-Magic in general or the 3 Mix-n-Match badges already released on November 17th, you can comment on the Mix-n-Magic Badges post.

Have a peek at some upcoming Mix-n-Match badges, slated for release in December. Pogo usually splits these into two releases, with about half released on the first of the month and the remainder to be released on the 15th, all at the regular price of 16 Gems per individual Mix-n-Match badge.

What games will these badges be in? Share your thoughts on these badges in a comment below.
