    Magika. Was gone in less than a second. I was on it as soon as button appeared.

    The promotion has ended. You have already claimed your own free game.

    • +1

      with the countdown timer, do we need to refresh or does the button just appear

    • +1

      Most likely the bots got it.

  • LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Ga

  • lego pirates of the carribbean

  • this is crap and total waste of time

    clicking button does nothing and just shows expired message

    • same

    • +2

      At least you are getting a button… :/
      Mine just resets the counter each time.

      • +1

        still same result
        no free games

        it is a waste of time

        • saw the button, clicked on it and it said you've already claimed it or the promotion ended :(

  • Rayman Origins Uplay CD Key

  • +4

    Is it just me or is this weekend worse than the first? I haven't seen the claim button at all.

    • +4

      Worse man. Only got 1 game since 11pm last night. The good thing is I have stopped feeling bad. Don't care anymore.

  • Max Payne 3 Complete Steam CD Key

  • I have been after this one for some time.. :-(

    Promotion ended

  • +6

    Last weekend we had to do a captcha to access the site every hour, whereas this weekend the captcha is not needed. I reckon the bots are having a field day, so I'm done losing sleep over this.

    • The button didn't show up for me (I only tried it three times last night before giving up), perhaps it's because of my slow internet?. Last weekend it was terrible for me because I wasted so much time and didn't even get a game I wanted to play.

      • +1

        It's not because of internet speed. The bots are having a field day because they have removed all capchas and their website sucks. They should fire the people who developed this $h!t.

  • +1

    It just instantly went back to the timer, no button. :/

    • I got the button but Promotion ended message. It's useless.

  • Oh god it's back

    • +2

      And it's much, much worse than before.

      • That sucks

        • Is it just the same games again? Lol

          • @Wilder94: Mostly. There's been a few new ones though.

            • @Nitr0: Geez refresh at 8 seconds take roughly that to load new timer down 20 seconds..

              • +1

                @Wilder94: You don't need to refresh now unless the site breaks at 0 (which is likely lol)
                If that happens, you're out.

                I ran 3 browser windows in chrome and FF and there's a good 2 seconds between the clocks. If you're lucky enough to get a claim button to pop it will probably be broken.

                • @Nitr0: Sounds exhausting, i just moved house I'm not ready for the trauma of kinguin yet ahah

  • That depends what you mean - the plan is to have it every weekend. - Kinguin Twitter.

    lol rip our weekends..

    PS: Does anyone want to trade? I have Borderlands 2 GOTY [EU Region]

    • +4

      If they keep it the way it is now my weekends are safe.

  • +1

    Dungeons 3.

    It was gone in less than a second.

    I'm out.

    • Of course, now I dunno what to do with this carefully curated list of games I had to trade.

  • I'm out now to. Good luck everyone!

  • For those of you who've managed to win a game, what's the process?

    Does the timer count down to zero then a game appears?

    Or does the page need to be refreshed for the game to appear?

    • +1

      time counts down and switches over to show the game with a link to claim. So far even though my mouse is over where the button appears and I'm hyper clicking for the 2 secs before it changes I have not been able to claim a game "fast enough". Out of the four times I have watched it tick over only twice have I seen the game appear rather then the time just reset.

      add to that when I load on my desktop and my pone (on 4G) the timer is out by massive 7 seconds.

  • I have a spare Brutal Legend key for trade. Anyone got any cute platformer indie games?

  • did anyone see the button ?

    • +1

      No button sighted, just straight onto next timer!

  • +2

    My button is unresponsive, anyone else?

    • +1

      I cant even see the button dude :(

      • Yeah the claim button doesn't respond for me either….same thing happened last time to

  • +1

    I'm pretty sure it was Dragon Age: Origins (edit: confirmed, its Origin key). Also, pretty sure the countdown is off by a few seconds… pretty sure if you wait for 00:00:00 its already been claimed.

    • Are you suggesting we should be refreshing at 58secs?

  • it's a big crapshoot, you know? I didnt get the button a lot, if I just sit and stare. I'm not saying it works 100%, but if I refresh, at least I see what I can't claim most of the time :-). maybe check your system time individually, and figure out your latency. Example, when my countdown hits 00:00:30, my system time is 18:59:32 (2 seconds off). If anything, I'd say the website is trying too hard to be perfect (its all bits and bolts after all ;-). I think, the loading time (and lag) will be different for each computer/connection. See what works best for you!

  • +1

    How many copies do they give away each time?

  • +9

    Honestly, the captcha system without the countdown worked FAAAR better. So far i've only been able to claim one single game, and i've been camping on it since it started this weekend. At least last week I was able to get some decent stuff… Now it's just kinda 'eh'.

  • FFS. The countdown is just too unreliable. If someone has direct contact to them, PLEASE tell them to stop making it worse!

  • +6

    Total waste of time, at least last weekend you had a chance.

  • +3

    Jumping Penguin Simulator 2019 Steam CD Key

  • Claim button didn't work.
    Definitely worse than last week.
    I haven't being able to get any yet.

  • Burnout Paradise Ultimate Box - shame to let that one go, oh well, there's always next week! ;-)

    I did get a few early on, but now seems near impossible. Button worked, to a point. All keys were gone before you knew you had something to say.

  • Another drop with no button. At least we had a chance last week, now it just feels like the giveaway is for bots.

  • For me if I watch the timer count down, it reaches zero and nothing happens.

    If I refresh the page I either get the timer stopped at zero, the loading penguin, or the timer counting down from 59 minutes again.

    I've never once seen this elusive claim button people are mentioning.

  • Saw the next screen but couldn't click claim, insta-gone, that was for the latest drop, Lego game

  • Anyone got Brothers? I can trade something for it

  • I'm looking for Indiana Jones Atlantis. Hasn't been posted yet but was available free recently in epic games.

  • +1


    This time it kinda glitched? I noticed in the final minutes the countdown on the site was almost perfectly synced with my system timer, no more 2s difference. Now it was more of a .5s difference.

    Anyways, I refreshed this time right on the last second of the countdown on the site, and I got the penguin jumping glitch…

    Or so I thought? I kept refreshing on and on, but this time the game showed up at least ~5-10s (I wasn't keeping track) after the countdown finished and I got the penguin glitch. Finally, for the first time almost since it started this weekend, I got another game (albeit, it's another not so well known title).

    TL:DR, I think they've tinkered with how it works again, maybe incorporating how they delayed it for a bit like they did for a few hours last weekend, to combat bots without the extra captcha (Though, I still think that was a better system).

    Also, the drops of the past few hours just incase anyone was wondering:

    5 PM - Adam Wolfe All Episodes (Episodes 1-4)
    4 PM - Hitman Absolution
    3 PM - Outlast

  • Has anyone been lucky with this weekends promo?

    • I got Dawn of War 3 and Adam Wolfe, that's all. I've been on it almost every hour (even during midnight) though.

    • nothing nada. hardly shows or if it does then its too late instantly. I think the clock' is just not able to sync and therefore I'm always too late - and yes I have re synced my PC clock online.

    So.. I figured I'd try and hack I a little - probably won't get anywhere since I don't java script much at all. Basically I want to see if I can make my PC fire off 1 second earlier. I'm not yet sure exactly how best to do that but I figured the easiest way might be to hijack the javascript. I looking into that I found this URL..

    Which gives gives the past few items AND the next one.. the probing continues.

    • Sweet. Good work there mate. Saves me a lot of frustration. I don't mind the anticipation, but that feeling of dissapointment of not even getting somehting I never wanted in the first place… You know what I mean, right? Also, good luck with whatever your up to. Sounds like fun! :-)

  • +1

    Lmao. First drop claimed since Friday, and its… ChromaGun. Mainly did it for testing the page with images disabled :>. Too early to tell if it helps, but hey, worth a shot. For those curious, tested in Opera, turning off images does not mess up the claim button, the button and the timer are clearly visible, and working. Could it shave off a few ms though…???
    Ps. site is more stable overall, last week was a bit more fun tho ;-)

    PM for ChromaGun, if interested. Never played Portal, never intend to play this… basically a givaway :-).

    • Heh, I spent an hour picking through the HTML on Saturday morning. SVG fills doing a lot of the heavy lifting on that page ;)

  • Got another one. Might actually enjoy Fahrenheit! Refreshed 1 second till zero. My last post for the day, good hunting chaps!

  • I'm not having an issue with the countdown timer or seeing the games most hours, its just that the claim button never works and is unclickable. Don't suppose anyone knows a workaround for that =(

    • I think that either means something messed up with your login (try clearing cookies) or that all the keys have been claimed.

  • If anybody is interested in trading keys, please PM me your wishlist (the longer the list and the more flexible you are, the greater the chances) and what you have.

    Interested in the following:

    -The evil within
    -Life is strange: Before the storm
    -Max Payne 3
    -Lego Pirates of the Caribbean
    -Dawn of War 3
    -Battlefield 4 (although we have a 48 hour trial still which is more than enough to finish SP - so this one is not necessarily a priority)

    • I might have one for ya, third from the top, but cant start a PM. Would you mind?
      Also, any advice how to battle overseas account restrictions, guys? :-)

  • +1

    This weekend without free games, they improving system


    • +1

      Well I can certainly respect them for trying to improve the giveaway. I did feel a little choosing beggary at times complaining about completely free games, so the fact that they are doing anything is nice.
      The credit system sounds a little like Chrono.gg, guess it'll just be another thing I click on along with that every morning :D

      • Is it free every wekeend?

        • Not sure how frequently they aim to do the new system, that linked blog didn't really specify

          • @Stoibs: thanks I see a lot of people "trading" games here, how do that?

            • @capslock janitor: I believe just PM'ing each other and working out an exchange of keys. There's no official system here

        • Yes, they will come back in this weekend prolly with new system
