i think i may have to hand over these donations to another dc member to buy the worms pack.. a certain unnamed DC member (cough cough JOSH) tricked me into thinking that worms was playable already and so i bought my single copy.. now i don't think i can buy the pack.  anyone else willing to buy the pack for a group?

Looks like no one else is interested.  If we don't get 2 more by tomorrow evening it might be best to just buy individual copies.

PM me if you want in on the 4 pack.

If you own the game, you can install it and play it now!

Bummer. It worked for me on my first try. I'm at 45%. Just keep trying and you'll get it eventually.

Weird. It seems artificially limited compared to past versions. You can only have 4 worms per team, and only 4 players/teams in a game.

And the GUI looks overly huge, even running on a 22" monitor at 1680x1050.

Just had a fun game with Mouser and Deozaan - game is a bit rough around the edges (I managed to crash not only Worms but the Steam platform too), but I am sure Team17 will roll out the fixes.

PM sent :)

Do you have the games "in hand" or waiting for the correct number of people before purchasing the pack?

Carp! I scheduled an event for some game time in Steam and then 5 minutes before it started my internet died on me and it was down for hours. :(

Alright people, 1 more copy available.  PM me if you want it.  I purchased the pack already, so you will get the pre-release extras.
