Thank you, Marian! I still am not seeing anything on the site even though I have refreshed and I also signed in with my other account. I do see it though when I open my game manager. I never open the manager except to download games. I guess I'll have to start doing that. I'm assuming there was an overlap and am quite happy now that I caved in!

While we're "talking", are you quite sure that they fixed that problem they had with owning a huge number of games? I have made my last few purchases on my first account that I had stopped using because you said that issue has been fixed. Of course, now I have points on two different accounts.

I do really like that they now show "you own this game". That's the best change they made.

I like that change, too - you own this game is straightforward and makes it very simple.

Yes, they definitely fixed the problem with the Purchase History and large numbers of games. I can't say 100% that there will never be problems in the future (no one can guarantee that), but I too have added games to my original account since they fixed this issue. That to me is the best change they made overall, that of fixing this large Purchase History issue.

Thank you for the reassurance, and yes, that IS probably the best change! Don't worry, I would never say "well Marian said it was okay" lol.

New bundles today. I haven't looked at them yet but I see one section is Art by Numbers. I will probably pick a few up. I have one of them that I've been working on at night before bed along with a Pop Art game and the My Needlework games.

Yes, I was just looking at it. The Fantasy bundle has some older CE games that not everyone will have in their collection already. Nice to see the variety.

Nice to be able to pick up some Art by Numbers at a good price. smile

In the Fantasy Bundle (other than the time management games) the only three I don't have are Enchantment: Secret Hideaway and the two remastered Awakening games. I have (and have played/enjoyed) the original Awakening games on disc only. They are still installed on my Win 7.

In the Mystery Case files games, there are six that I only have on disc but they are not worth me re-purchasing. Two are SE's that can be bought cheaper in a BOGO (and one of those I would probably never replay again), two don't work with Win 10 or 11 as far as I've seen, one I have replayed and probably will never replay again. That leaves only The 13th Skull which is still installed on my Win 7. I have played it once. They had the MCF games in a bundle not too long ago.

I know of only one MCF game that does not work on Windows 10 and that is Dire Grove. II haven't tried any of them on Windows 11 yet.

I thought the two remastered Awakening games were great. I also enjoyed the originals very much.

Big Fish reviewers say Dire Grove doesn't work in Win 11 either. I heard Shadow Lake uses Flash. I really don't know about either of the games first hand - just repeating what I've read.

I'm considering the Awakening games but I'm not sure yet.

I would have assumed that Dire Grove wouldn't work in Windows 11, just because the buck stopped with Windows 10, unfortunately.

Someone on a Reddit forum said two months ago that Shadow Lake is working fine on their Windows 10 computer. I have read several such confirmations, so it seems hopeful.

Big Fish does show Shadow Lake plays on Win 10. I don't know. I had meant to try it in my Win 7 as it is still installed there but I never did get around to it.

I had thought I read somewhere that some games that didn't work on Win 10 did work on Win 11 though. Again, I don't know.

Sure, it's possible. Unexpected, but possible. I will let you know if I see of any such instances!

Thanks Marian! I figured they would change soon; it's been two weeks. I'll check them out! I also have been checking everyday under "new releases" since you pointed out to me that sometimes some games just get snuck in there wink .

Yes, I am also trying to remember to check under new releases - there was a really good time management game released on Monday, Arcane Arts Academy. Hopefully most people who like these games will see that it is now on Big Fish.

There are new bundles today. I haven't looked closely at them yet but they don't look like they are for me!

Yes, I noticed that yesterday but forgot to post about it. Thanks for mentioning it, though!

Also, for Game Club members, one of the betas coming up is Mystery Case Files: The Riddle of Mrs. Bishop. So, we have a title now.
