In Merit Badge events, you need to complete 3 free event challenges or 1 premium challenge each week to earn a Merit Badge. Collect all three badges to unlock and earn the bonus Super Scout badge.
When doing Merit challenges, you can find your own path towards completing each week’s Merit Badge. You can either complete the free challenges each week, or you can purchase the premium mix-n-match challenges available instead.
Pogo events are all about having fun, so no one is judging the way that you complete this event.
As with all Pogo events, you must complete each Merit Badge event during the limited timeframe. The event page for each Merit Badge event will show how much time you have remaining to complete your challenges. If you do not complete your challenges within this time frame, you won’t be able to collect your reward.
Tips & Tricks
You don’t have to complete them all at once. Create a plan of attack for completing each challenge so that you can participate in the event while still doing anything else on Pogo that you like to do.
While you can only activate one Merit Badge challenge in the same game during the event itself, you are able to activate a weekly, personal, or previously purchased mix-n-match badge to go with the challenges in this event. That way you can build up your badge collection faster and earn even more Pogis to count towards various rewards in each Pogo Constellation.
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.
