Waiting for our potential winner's reply now. Winners have a week to respond, but if I don't hear from them, we'll pick a new winner.

I'm a bit late to this thread with my opinion, but I also wasn't at all attracted to the idea of spending 10,000 treats for the chance to omit ads on ONE game, for ONE day. It seemed a bit much, for too little return, to me.

***I like the gift cards, and I would also like the chance for ALL to win GDG downloadable games... Americans and International players, alike. Those are all good, worthwhile prizes, IMO... (Until the prizes return, I've mostly been playing Pegland Blast -- a beta game which I truly LOVE.)

jeque,it's gone now.
It was only for the amount of time they leave a sweeps running.
I think that is for 1 week,then the prizes change.
Sorry you missed it.Maybe they'll offer it again so you can give it a shot.

Now see a lot of what I said in another post is exactly what I am reading
here. Nobody like the prizes you offered therefore they did not enter.
You should've changed the prizes, to see if more people would've
entered instead of just stopping the whole thing. I'm sure there must've
been other things you could have offered the international players.
Anything that does not pertain to money would have worked. Not
sure if a free downloadable game comes under that heading, but
that would have been one I would have liked to enter as well. People
seemed to like the gift cards. Maybe there are gift cards for companies
that the people playing outside of the US could have been able to play for.
Why don't you try some other things instead of just stopping the
sweepstakes altogether?

I'm still in favor of the downloadable games being offered.
Everyone that plays games must like to play or else they wouldn't.
Therefore it stands to reason that anyone would love to win a game.
What better way to spend treats than on a chance to win a game?
But,alas,I don't run the show at GDG,
if I did there would be a downloadable game
as a prize in the sweepstakes.

It seems that I had the honor of receiving the last good prize offered, which ironically was for Target who just compromised my debit card and forced me to have to contact my bank for a new one. A year ago I had also won a small Starbucks card, which was a pleasant surprise. It would be nice if prizes were offered again, but I don't intend to stop playing here as long as it remains a free site...the benefits of having multiplayer games and message capability between friends is more valuable to me, anyway...and would be missed if the site were shuttered. There are other sites that offer prizes where I do play with less frequency simply because the games are not as good and the competition for prizes is extreme. If you enjoy the games here, support them and the advertisers (now that Skittles isn't one of them Smile // Ted

Waiting, waiting, waiting to see if the sweepstakes will return.
Would begging help? Right now there is no reason to give
treats for games played, so why even bother....
I personally always entered for the gift cards. Can you please
bring them back?

A "no-ad" day? With all of the $$ from advertisers that GDG is getting and they no longer bother to spend one thin dime on prizes for US?? I think its a pretty pitiful "prize".....shame on GDG & shame on GDG Brian for feeding us this pathetic garbage about some great new non-prize!

I would guess that since GDG owns the site
it's their prerogative to offer sweepstakes or not...
and they choose not to at this time, we just have to accept it.
