Players earn badges by accomplishing a variety of feats in the game. Each badge can only be collected once. On the final day of the season (September 1), whoever has the most badges will win. For more information, see How to Play.

Red badges are earned by solving goos, but they scale upwards in difficulty. You get your first red badge for solving your first goo, another for your third goo, another for your sixth goo, another for your tenth goo, and so on.

Orange badges are earned by solving consecutive chains of goos. You get your first for solving 10 goos in a row, another for solving 20 goos in a row, and so on. If a goo that you create is published in the middle of a chain of consecutive solves, it has no effect on the chain.

Yellow badges are earned by solving multiple goos in a single calendar day (between midnight and midnight, Eastern time). You get the first for solving 1 goo in a day, then the second for solving 2 goos on a later day, then the third for solving 3 goos on a later day, and so on. You must earn them in order, on separate days.

Green badges are earned by solving goos in different categories. Each time you solve a goo in a category for the first time, you'll collect that category's badge.

Teal badges are earned by timing your solves: You'll earn a badge for being the first player to solve a goo, the second player, and so on, up to being the tenth player. You'll also earn a badge by being the last player or only player to solve a goo. (Scott Hardie's guesses don't count. Pending guesses will delay teal badges being awarded.)

Blue badges are earned by solving goos after a lottery drawing. Each day, one player is randomly selected. If that player solves that goo, that player will earn a badge.

Purple badges are earned by creating goos. Whenever one of your created goos is published, you'll earn another purple badge instantly, even if you originally created the goo during a previous season.

Brown badges are earned by solving and creating goos of varying difficulty. You can earn a badge by solving a goo in each of the five difficulty levels, or by the publication of one of your goo creations in each of the five difficulty levels.

Black badges are earned by solving specific kinds of goos. There is one badge each to be earned by solving a do-over goo, a multiple goo, a female goo, and a male goo, as well as another badge for solving a goo by each player in the game, as well as another badge for solving a goo in each theme throughout the season.
