Once upon a time, I worked a tedious job that drove me crazy. During my lunch breaks, I would unwind with a little gaming on my cell at my desk – not the gambling kind, mind you, but the simple and cheerful games that calmed me down and brought me to my happy place. I’d play solitaire, chess and games of that sort.

When I took my early retirement, as I like to call it, I stopped playing those games because well, I just wasn’t stressed out anymore.

Over the last year or so, as I have become more and more involved in blogging, and life in general has become more stressful – hello, have you seen the parade of foster kittens with everything from fleas, ring worms and roundworms on my blog lately? – I find myself looking for those cheerful games again.

    I played Poppit with my grandmother before she passed. She really loved Pogo games, especially when she couldn’t walk to well to leave the house. It gave her some indoor fun!

    I looove Pogo games too! If you like Poppit because it’s a quick 5-minute game you should totally check out Pogo’s Word Whomp (anagrams) or Aces Up (solitaire). They’re both really good for a quick break, although as with all of Pogo’s games the potential for addiction is hiiigh!

    I got so hooked on Pogo a few years ago I created a whole web site to keep track of tips for their games. It grew over the years and now I’ve got tips and information for every game, sneak peeks of the games Pogo is developing, tons of free Pogo tokens, and giveaways. I’d love to have you stop by if you have a chance.

    Do you have a Club Pogo membership? The Club-exclusive badges are what I’ve really been hooked on all these years. I love love love earning and collecting them! :)
