Online games, like pickaxes baked in prisoners' birthday cakes, can provide a much-needed escape from the daily grind. Break free from oppressive routines with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a three-month online-gaming membership to Club Pogo (up to a $17.97 value).
With a cache of more than 100 online games, Pogo bestows web surfers with myriad solo and multiplayer diversions. Pogo's membership program, Club Pogo, opens the Internet gaming world up to more than 40 subscriber-only games and exclusive content on the site. Gaming gurus can challenge their noggins to a point-collecting, puzzle-deducing experience completely devoid of pop-up ads that, like Liberace's ghost materializing during a piano recital, can startle players and throw off their performances. Pogo also pampers subscribers with a hodgepodge of additional perks, such as members-only game rooms and private chatting. Chinwag with card-carrying Pogo members about rampant board-game nostalgia while plotting your next move in Monopoly, or zen out solitarily with Mahjong Garden, an updated twist on a green-thumbed classic. Polysyllabize opponents in Scrabble, square off on the Boggle grid, or eke out an alibi for the elusive Colonel Mustard in Clue.
Although Club Pogo may occasionally offer promotional incentives for new customers, this Groupon presents the best value for all potential customers.
