Thanks for the link shadowfax. At least that worked.

Dobbie: You can buy any of the combination up to and including 31st May, but you'll only receive 1 coupon

Well, you all had me so curious about the popup that I decided to check it out. I went to the BF home page and the banner on top had Felix in tulips and a mention of earning free games and Learn More. Then up popped a popup with Felix and the tulips again . I clicked on learn more and it had an equation of Buy CE or Buy 2 SE = Free Coupon.
Looks like you can do this any time in the month of May, but it will only work once for you .
Ok, puzzledone, get up off the floor, tell 911 to go home and have a or .
You guys got me laughing this morning so I hope the rest of my day is amusing as well.

You are very welcome Kelvarda.

I hope Belamba sees it at well. I will PM her and give it to her that way just in case.

Aaaaahhhhh !

I wish I hadn't just looked at the thermometer outside... it is only 34F out there right now. This is very unusual for this time of year here in the Pacific Northwest... at least when it was raining a couple of days ago it was warmer. LOL

I wish a Mod would come into one of the threads and clear this up. There are some other's in the thread in CCC - GENEROUS BIG FISH - that haven't seen this 'apparition' either. I did wonder (and still am) whether this is another OS foul-up?

Kel
I saw the pop-up when I signed in, looked at the new H0 game and when I went back to the home page it was gone. I think it must have been released in error and someone caught it and took it off. Hoping a mod will let us know.

Jeez you guys. If someone wrote "drink water to rehydrate" there would be hundreds of posts asking for clarification. What kind of water? Does it matter what color glass I drink it from? What time of day should I drink it? Can I drink coffee instead?

Do you go to Big Fish website by means of your Internet browser or from the game manager? I always go to BF from the game manager.
I always have a banner at the top of the game home page if there are any specials or promotions for members.
Would that make a difference why some get things on the main game page and some don’t?

Does anyone else find it amusing that along with the Shiver SE game posted as Today's New Release, there is also a strategy guide that you can buy?

Now wouldn't your smart gamer just go ahead and buy the CE that comes with an SG AND has bonus play too?? I mean this would cost the exact same price.

They apparently think we are morons... LOL

Welcome to the forums judithg!!

It appears that the people who aren't seeing that banner are overseas. I don't know why but this seems to be the situation.

Or, how does it work along with our usual cards, one extra card? On the next page it doesn't answer those questions but at the bottom of the text, scroll down it says More Info. Click that and I get a page (still BF) My Stuff on left side, Purchase History etc. But body of page says Permission Denied. Looks like a Help page. Under that it says This answer is no longer available.

Bottom left is topic Promotions, click and this May thing isn't listed.

I have a sneaking feeling this is an error, it doesn't make sense to me. There is no promo code to use for one free game with a CE. Won't be the first time someone was asleep on the switch on a weekend or new month.

Confused wording on the Learn more Offer Details says by11.59pm PST ON May 31st and receive coupon. I could read that to mean buy your game(s) ON that date, not during the month?

They don't call me Puzzled for nothin. But I'm not choosing my CE yet, messing up my punch card strategy again

Anyone?? Can you get a detail page from More Information? Me thinks this is open no non members if it isn't available to link to for me.


Confusing....Here is what I found:
Offer Details:
Buy any 1 Collector's Edition or 2 standard version games by 11:59pm PST on May 31st and receive a coupon code good for 1 free standard version game from Big Fish Games. Free game coupons will be delivered by email during the first week in June. Limit 1 free game per customer. More information

I guess by "buy" that means we can't use coupons. It now says "buy BY .....May 31st" and get coupon code in June (there is a picture of the "coupon"), but - as you mentioned - the link for more info has no further information! I'll be buying a CE today, so will look for more info then.

I think you will probably be able to purchase the SE games using punch card coupons or game credits and still get the free game coupon. Let us know what you find out when you buy, okay?

I have felix in the tulips in upper right corner of the home page. Also got the popup last night as I checked the new game.

My question, do you have to play the first Mystery Chronicles to keep up with the 2nd? Is the first one worth trying/getting? Didn't seem to have as good of reviews and I haven't downloaded to see if I had tried it last year or not.

No, the stories are not related so you don't need to have both.

I picked up Mystery Chronicles - Murder Among Friends as a DD and I enjoyed it. Not sure that I would have paid more for it, though.

Does anybody know if this means its been fixed as I have had it from the beginning and never been able to finish it as it kept freezing up, even though I deleted and re- downloaded several times. Does any one remember seeing an update on this. If so I will re-download and try again. It was so frustrating not to know how the story ended!


I have this game also and cant play it
