No. Because it's basically gambling.

I mean, the pinata costs $3 and every game have a normal price of $5+, so you're guaranteed to get a positive return as far as "value" is concerned; the gamble is whether or not you'll actually want the game.

Bought one, got Master of Magic. Never heard of it but apparently it's supposed to be a good game

I used to play that! It's a good game (although probably pretty dated now.)

Just got seven kingdoms 2 myself. I'd prefer to get the first in the series. Can't see myself playing that, but hey, Pillars for 9 USD...

So I lied and bought 2 more pinatas (f*** I am a gambler)

Instant regret. Got ANOTHER RTS game (Meridian New World) and an ancient flight sim game from 1999 (Independence War Deluxe).

f*** sake. All I wanted was one of the RPGs (Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny, Balders Gate 1/2, Vampire the Masquerade etc.) but noooooo. f*** this promotion.

Even the best RTS game is s*** to me. I suck at all of them and I don't find them fun.

Sad to see GOG jumping on the "BUY MYSTERY GAME MAY B SUMTHING GOOD" bandwagon. But I guess if there are consumers naive enough to wall for it then stores will keep doing it.
thank you for reading my post

The entire concept is disgusting to me. It really shouldn't be legal in my opinion to take money from someone when what they are purchasing isn't clear.

I don't know why I did, but I used my wallet funds (I get 1.70ish off of games because I'm purchasing from the UK, and we get screwed on prices) to get one.

Got a game called Primordia. Never heard of it, point and click adventure. Not a huge fan of point and click, but it actually looks interesting (I really enjoy post apocalyptic), so I'll be playing it. Also has good reviews, which is nice.

Overall, happy with what I got.
