Oh, I would like that coffee cup, but I already own most of the list and the ones left I didn't buy because I wasn't that excited about them - maybe the list will grow this month (I hope, I hope).

I'm in exactly the same spot, Kathy. I hope they'll expand it as well, since I own all of those I want already.

I too have about 100 of the games, we sure lose out because of that.

I wanted the coffee cup too, but I have most of the games on the list of the ones I like. Pretty cool deal though!

We will be adding games all month long as we release them. We have already added 3.

Mystery Chronicles - Murder Among Friends
Murder and mistrust abound in the town of Lyon in the year 1899. Trail an elusive killer through the backroads of France, and solve clever puzzles to halt the terror. Comb locations like libraries, museums, graveyards, and sewers for hidden objects and clues. Test your deduction skills and don`t be fooled by false sincerity. Danger is afoot in Mystery Chronicles: Murder Among Friends, a back-stabbing game of suspense.

Lost Secrets: Bermuda Triangle
Lost Secrets: Bermuda Triangle takes you on an epic seafaring adventure! When Rachel Broadview finds the name of her great-grandmother in a book about shipwrecks in the Bermuda Triangle, she makes it her life mission to find out exactly what happened and uncover the secrets lost there. Comb the beach, scour the sea, and use your sleuthing skills on shipwrecks.

Cassandra`s Journey: The Legacy of Nostradamus
Cassandra`s Journey: The Legacy of Nostradamus puts you in the role of Cassandra, a young mystic relying on a mysterious ring to solve cases that are assumed to be impossible. One day, her magical ring goes missing. Now it is up to you, with the help of the spirit of Nostradamus and unique mind-reading magic tricks and fortune-telling wisdom, to find the missing ring and help Cassandra reveal the secrets of her family, before they are forever lost!

We will start emailing GC members whenever we ad a game to the promotion.

I'm curious about the size of the mug.
From the picture on this page
http://www.bigfishgames.com/promos/octoberfest-sale
it doesn't look like the usual coffee mug shape.

Thanks BFG-Guy! bravo

Just like BFG to make a cool deal an even cooler deal!!! thumbsup

Do you need to buy the games all at once or does it count if you buy 6 games this month?
Posted By: BFG-Guy

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/04/08 02:56 AM

It is a a larger than average coffee mug. Great for the caffeine addict in all of us.

You can buy the games anytime from October 1st to October 31st.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/04/08 05:06 AM

Thank you BFG-Guy.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/04/08 07:31 AM

BFG-Guy Is there anyway that we can purchase the coffee mug? I have almost all the games that are on your list so that leaves me out of any good offers. I purchase your games as soon as they come out and never wait for your specials. Please let us know because I know I'm not the only one that does this.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/04/08 03:31 PM

Not yet. Working on it.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/04/08 04:02 PM

BFG-Guy Thanks for answering my qustion. This is why I buy from you as you care about all our questions and come back and answer them.
Posted By: Cynder

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/05/08 02:30 AM

Candy's not the only one that does that for sure! Also, do we need to actually purchase or can we use our credits? I haven't picked up Cassandra yet, but was planning to do so.

I'm sooooo glad others asked about additional games qualifying for the cup or about purchasing the cup 'cause I feel the same way!!! yes puppy

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/08/08 05:45 AM

Does it count that I already bought the new games added? I do like to buy them right away when they are so good. Thanks BF guy - you are the greatest and BFG is the best.

puzzler, if you bought before before the Octoberfest it does not count. I am sure most of us buy right away so we are all in the same boat. lol

For those of you that might find it daunting to download so many games, guess what I got in the mail? Yep, an Octoberfest cd with trial games. Now just got to pick the one's haven't already bought. lol
Posted By: C65candy

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/08/08 02:17 PM

I got one too but can't get it to play

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/08/08 03:38 PM

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

The octoberfest is bad timing for me... so many games to play... and so much housework to do before winter!

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/12/08 06:22 PM

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.
Posted By: misa

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/12/08 07:05 PM

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+).
Posted By: Jenny100

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/13/08 02:14 AM

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.
Posted By: acornia

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/13/08 05:19 AM

Think musaic is on the list, too.
Posted By: Jenny100

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/13/08 05:27 AM

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.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/15/08 09:22 PM

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

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/23/08 10:17 PM

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

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/27/08 01:59 AM

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.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/27/08 03:47 PM

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.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/27/08 05:10 PM

Yahoo! I am d/l "Casebook". Tomorrow's BFG's game. I think that makes 6 of the Oktoberfest games that I purchased in October!! :pumpkin:
Thank you BF!!! :witch:

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.
Posted By: thracia

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/28/08 02:35 PM

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.

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/28/08 06:39 PM

Thracia,
Some of the newer ones may not be on the Octoberfest list webpage yet. You can check by looking at the page for the game itself.
For example, ***Interpol 2*** and ***Musaic Box*** are two new ones that say they are Octoberfest games on their own webpages, but not on the ***Octoberfest list page*** yet.
Posted By: thracia

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 10/28/08 10:06 PM

Thanks Jenny100,

I ended up buying one more game that was on the list, in order to qualify for the mug.Yaa hoo!

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 11/03/08 08:39 PM

Whooppee, I somehow have a big fishy mug on the way. Big Fish, thanks, you are the best.
And my fish is in the post too, should arrive quite soon hopefully.
Must remember not to let Pepper anywhere near the fish. Doughnut will prob try to use it as a pillow.
Whooppee, thanks again Big Fish, woo hoo. I will make a calming cuppa when the mug arrives.
Posted By: Jenny100

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 11/03/08 08:53 PM

I'm getting the mug and artwork too. I'd planned to just get the mug, but ended up buying more than I'd originally planned with all the new games being released that were Octoberfest games. Big Fish sent me an email with a link to confirm my address, but I can't tell that clicking on it did anything other than take me to their website. I've already chosen a spot for the artwork.
Posted By: Nikki

Re: It's Octoberfest at BigFish Games! - 11/04/08 02:56 AM

Ditto, Jenny! I can't tell either if it actually did anything. I've gotten 2 emails and responded to both of them, but all it does is bring to to the main page.
