C65, I opened mine to see what it was like for you. Do you have Autorun enabled?


If so, a screen should come up with thumbnails of all the games on the disk. At the bottom of each game square, there is "install."

Click on that and the BFG manager will pop up and the game will install just like when you download from BFG but faster. wave

Is there an up-to-date list of Octoberfest games?
The one at
http://www.bigfishgames.com/promos/octoberfest-gamelist

doesn't include newer games like Cassandra's Journey, which says it's an Octoberfest game on its download page. Same thing with Lost Secrets: Bermuda Triangle.

I don't think so Jenny. I did get an email with updated games.

I've already got the mug coming my way. I'm aiming for both the mug and the artwork (15+).

I'm aiming for the mug and the magnet. Unfortunately I've already bought a lot of the games on the list so my choices are limited.

Musaic looks good. I'm glad they put some new games on the list, even though Cassandra's Journey turned out to be a disappointment for me.

I wanted the mug so badly, but I've already bought all the games I want from the eligible list...

I'm up to 10 Octoberfest games. I'm aiming for 15 so that I can get the mug and the print. laugh Only a week to go to see what is released & if it gets added. There's some "maybe" games on my list that I might get at the last minute. At the game club prices, it's totally worth the $ even if the game is a "b list" game for me.

ETA: Bought 4 more last night. laugh

I'm doing the same thing now. I ended up getting some B-listers like Hide and Secret 2 and Secret of Margrave Manor. But they also have some good new ones like Musaic Box, Lost Secrets: Bermuda Triangle, and Treasures of Mystery Island. Veronica Rivers and the new Teri Tale game are also Octoberfest games.

I'm all set to spend but Megaplex Madness isn't listed though I thought it was advertised as an Octoberfest game....waiting impatiently to buy 9 games...must remember to quit part time job, which is starting to interfere with paying games lol

I bought H&S 2 as well and it was a B-lister for me. laugh There have been some really good A-listers out as part of this promo too.

I think I'm actually up to 16 or 17 Octoberfest games now!

Aretha, Megaplex Madness is an Octoberfest game, it's just not listed on the Octoberfest page (yet) but it says it is on the individual game page.

I was also hoping to get the mug, but I already bought alot of the games already, and am not sure if all the newer ones qualify. I think I have spending issues!( And it seems that I am not alonelol) Well I should at least get the magnet.

My BigFish update says I've got 18.
It's been a big Big Fish month for me.

I wonder if they'll send me a magnet along with the mug and the artwork.

Do they include all the games you bought in Oct, or only certain ones from the list? I could get the mug if the offer is for all games purchased this month.
