Club Pogo Games

I’ve had an account on Pogo since before there was a paid subscription for Club Pogo. February 2001 when we got our first desktop computer I joined Pogo. Over the years I’ve enjoyed chatting and playing games with people all over the country and even in the UK.

The site has changed a lot in over twenty years and gone through many upgrades as software became obsolete. The games I enjoyed when I had chat friends have changed and the chat feature is not convenient to playing the game and chatting, at least with some games. Two of the gals I chatted with have died. These days I play mostly Solitaire games, word games, Sukoku, and a couple of puzzle games. I don’t chat. I no longer know anyone on Pogo who chats.

I dislike that so many of the games require the purchase of ‘gems’ to buy coins for power-ups and so forth. Also, the graphics are really pretty juvenile in many of the games, to be honest. I have played one Sudoku game called Monopoly Sudoku but I’m done with it as of today.

When you click on the Play Sudoku link this is what pops up. Someone thought it was a wonderful idea to stick a creepy eyeball link above the game grid yesterday. Seriously? Would you want to play a game with an eyeball like that glaring at you? It’s a power-up of some sort that costs coins to use. I’m done. Stick a fork in me and turn me over, I’m done.

I’ll stick to the Solitaire games and the crossword game I like. I’m not purchasing gems to play games. It’s a waste of money when you can find something that doesn’t require gems.

There are still a few games you can play without a subscription if you want to check it out. I don’t play games on Facebook anymore and I uninstalled the Microsoft games that came on my laptop so Pogo is the only place I play online games.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
