Summer Of Games 2021: No sand in the eyes!

That's it! It's the time of the year when you see ads popping up everywhere displaying people with photoshopped smiles lying on a perfectly white beach.

But be assured: we have thought about all of those long car and bus trips, boring queues, and the waiting for your skin to tan longer than it takes for lobsters to turn red.

That is why we decided to release a LOT of GAMES that were simply waiting for you.

62 of them, one for every day, for 2 months.

Now you may wonder: What are the benefits for me?
We have a short and concise answer: none.

The reason is simple.
Even releasing 1 or 2 games each week is too weak of a rythm for us to show off all of the wonderful games we have in stock.
We can't even wait anymore for a special occasion.

That's why starting from the 1st of July, you will be able to discover ONE new game A DAY.
And by new game, we mean games "that were not OFFICIALLY RELEASED." (We see you. Yes you...)

As we want to bring them to your attention, we made a sort of "minigame" out of it, called "THE CALENDAR"... which is, basically, a calendar. The formula might be familiar to you if you were using BGA last year.

Everyday, on the right part of the front page, you will see a new TREASURE CHEST to uncover.
You click on it, it opens, and it shows the game release of the day.
That's it.

BUT.
If you click the newly released game EACH day, you will unlock achievements to beautify your account. Unique. Beautiful.

Will you be able to collect them ALL if you miss a single of the 62 days? Nope.
That's a challenge.
It's all up to you.

The game list is going to be refreshed weekly during the event in this forum post, so you can keep track of the games that have been released.
And that's it. ;)

Enjoy your holidays as much as you can (if you have them), take care of yourself and your relatives, and don't forget your sunscreen. And for those staying inside during summer: try to get a bit of sun. You can play BGA on pretty much anything, from a smartphone to a tablet, so why not do it outside?
See you soon.
With love,

The BGA TEAM.

How do we know if we've maintained the daily clicking streak ??

*Never mind, already missed the first day because I didn't click the Calendar date as well. :(

Thanks for this. I don't see a gift for today (2nd July), however. It sort of spins to open the chest but nothing is revealed (?).

That's strange. It should reveal a game. This works correctly for me. Do you have a screenshot? If you refresh the page, does it fix it?

It shows Chinese Checkers. What I meant to say was that yesterday there was a gift (gold digger with plastic shovel), but today nothing. I might be misunderstand though and perhaps the gift was for the first day only. In that case, there is no problem! :)

Yes, that's normal, there is not one achievement every day. But there are several of them :D

Was there an announcement? (I mean, besides what is written in the Pandemic announcement). I just kinda noticed the chest now, so I guess I lost the chance to rack all 62 days.
