Heads up, compers! In order to investigate a technical issue, we've had to move some of the older threads from Game Over into a new category called 'Game Over Archives'. It'll be comps from before 2017, so shouldn't have too much impact on your day-to-day Forum experience. Thanks for your patience!

any body else just had enough with the advents, I do not do IG so they have been not very good this year. and at my age I am not starting on IG bad enough with Twitter and Facebook
I do it just for fun and whatever I win is a bonus

I've managed 5 small wins this year so far - 4 from instagram and 1 from facebook - so, for me it has been worth having the instagram account. (one win was £100 with the others less than £20 each - so not a huge return, but I'm still grateful for them)
I have gone through todays entries in less then half an hour.
5 exclusively on Gleam/KingSumo
1 exclusively on an App
Only around 16 were on social media (none were exclusive to Instagram only)
I managed to get some small prizes from M&S Sparks app, Local FB page, PetPlan and Family Tickets.
I like having a competition entering session on my laptop vs a phone, but instagram doesn't allow you to share to your stories via a computer, it has to be done on their app and a lot of companies want you to do it as part of a task. Also most Instagram competitions allow you to tag loads of friends. I do have people to tag, but it seems like a lot of effort, when that could be used entering other competitions elsewhere once.
I've managed to enter most daily this year though, as I'm currently down with Covid (been over a week now, thought I was getting better went downhill massively today.) So the nights I can sleep, I enter, as I'm not able to do anything physical right now.
Hopefully some wins will come through for people after Christmas, as some aren't selecting winners until then.
Started with around 76 on my bookmarks to enter which is wayyy less than previous years and now i have 40 left (im a bit of a prize snob so even then i only enter a handful each day)
I wouldn't mind as much if that was just a way of getting extra entries, but when it's the only way of entering, it's a big fat no from me.
So from doing probably 100+ per day 10 years ago, I was down to about 20 in the first 12 days of Dec, and now down to about 8 a day! No surprise that I haven't won anything, other than a little string of lights on the M&S app which were unavailable when I went instore to get them!
I can feel your pain on the advents, got overwhelmed as I was working up to the 23rd and lost out on loads of entries. I have not one even a single thing in two months so really fed up. My saving grace was I have been really ill with a flu bug so am only just back on. Hope everyone has more luck than me at the mo
