In Badge Marathon events, you can activate and complete the challenges in any order you like, but to win the animated bonus badge, you need to finish all of the challenges before time runs out.
The challenges available in a Badge Marathon work in a way that is similar to Mix-n-Match badges, but you do not need to pay for any of the challenges. While the marathon is active, you will be able to activate any challenge you like. However the challenges will not be available after the marathon ends.
Tips & Tricks
Start off by reading through each challenge description and challenge length, so you can strategize on your way to victory.
While you can only activate one Badge Marathon challenge in the same game during the Marathon itself, you are able to activate a weekly, personal, or previously purchased Mix-n-Match badge to go with the challenges in this Marathon. That way you can build up your badge collection faster and earn even more Pogis to count towards various rewards in each Pogo Constellation.
As mentioned above, it’s a good idea to look at each challenge available in the marathon and create your own game plan. You do not need to complete it all as quickly as possible, just plan it out so you can make good progress each day.
If you’re looking for any help in a specific game, or have questions about the event itself, you can always ask your fellow players in chat for some friendly advice.
Frequently Asked Questions
If an Event ends and I haven’t completed all of the required Challenges, can I still get a reward?
Unfortunately, once an event ends, and you have not completed all of the required challenges within an event, you will not receive the reward.
If you have purchased a challenge as part of an event, it may still remain active after the event, and you will still be able to receive any Pogis associated with the badge if you choose to complete it.
Can I re-activate any Challenges from an Event after it ends?
Most challenges in an event are only available during that event (especially free challenges which you activate only through an event page). However, if you purchase a Mix-n-Match badge to help complete an event, it remains in your collection permanently.
I’ve just started an Event, but it’s already been running for a little while. Can I catch up?
When an event is running, you can activate any prior or present challenges at any time.
How can I find out how much progress I’m making on a Challenge in an Event?
There are a few ways to check up on your challenge progress as you’re working in an Event.
You can check within the game itself by clicking on “My Active Challenges” (the badge icon on the right side). It will show you any active challenges in that game, and your progress. Each time you play a game and complete rounds or levels, you’ll also see any challenge progress.
In most Events, you’ll be able to see some of your progress on the event page itself. You can always go back to that page to make sure that you are on track to complete the event.
Lastly, you may also see your challenges by visiting Challenge Central and filtering based upon “Challenge Status”.
Do I have to buy Challenges to complete Events?
No, you do not need to buy any challenges. Some events do allow you to purchase Mix-n-Match challenges to either complete in addition to any of the free challenges or complete instead of some of the free challenges. You will still receive rewards as long as you complete the required free challenges.
If you choose to purchase any Mix-n-Match challenges as part of the event itself and complete them, some events may allow you to earn additional rewards. Be sure that any Mix-n-Match challenges you purchase are part of the event itself. It must be listed on the event page in order to help you make progress towards event completion.
