I just canceled my club membership (again). A free game code expired because they offered nothing I wanted. I meant to offer it as a giveaway but I lost track of when it expired. If within 180 days they have something I'm interested in I'll use my last club credit, which seems unlikely at this point.

I didn't sign up for time management games. Or match 3 games.

In general, Big Fish is releasing one CE HOPA a week, sometimes two. If that plus the huge catalog of HOPA CEs already available isn't enough, well then it's up for you to decide. I am lucky in that I like lots of different types of games so the question becomes what to play next rather than what to play. I'm not sure I understand what purpose it serves to complain about it here. If it matters to you, try writing to Big Fish and telling them about it, which might actually accomplish something.

Not positive yet what the CE HOPA will be this week, but based on what I am reading on other forums, it will either be an Elephant Grim Tales or a Mad Head Nevertales game.

I for one feel fortunate that we are still getting a new game every day, considering what is going on in the world at the moment.

I got caught up on every series I was interested in. They're not releasing anything I'm interested in anymore.

If you're not finding any games you're interested in at Big Fish anymore, then quitting the membership makes sense.

If they are releasing games you're interested in, but at too slow a rate, maybe quit temporarily and rejoin in a year or two, once there's enough backlog you're interested in.

Check in with BF from time to time, Guybrush. It is not necessary to burn the bridge itself. I feel somewhat the same way you do about the change in types of games available, so I canceled my membership ages ago, but I still monitor the site now and then, and do find a game or two that appeals. Just not as many as previously.

Masks and disposable gloves are hard to come by, family. Amazon has some of the gloves. They also have masks, but they come from China. Others are only being aold to medical facilities and government entities.

No worries - we know you were trying to help. What Sparkle said, though, is true, unfortunately. Some of these items are indeed very hard to come by.

Having these games to play is making sure that I have very little if any cabin fever, thankfully. wave

Have you tried looking back over the years? I am currently playing and enjoying Curse of the Black Water-Mystery of the Ancients. I bought it back in 2013 - great fun!!

So if you cancel BF memebership can you still play the games you already bought?


You don't have to attend every argument you're invited to.

Sure.
Cancelling your membership does not cancel your account, and you can still log in with the Game Manager and reinstall games you've already bought.
You just don't get discounts on future games you buy (unless you rejoin).

I cancelled my membership several years ago because I wasn't seeing enough games I was interested in. However, I certainly love that Big Fish is there for everyone and continues to release new games and keep people playing! I still play lots of my older BF games, some of them every day. What is it about Plants vs. Zombies that just fascinates me!

I was a member for a very short time - years ago - until I realised I would never be buying games often enough for it to be worthwhile.
So now I have the pleasure of dipping into Big Fish whenever the mood takes me AND I can still take advantage of some of the many "sales" they hold bravo
