Steam Cards dropping?
I just bought this game and im reaching about an hour played with 0 of my card drops. Anyone else having similar issues? I'm just playing local games.

I've seen screenshots of it, so they're definitely in and working. Trading cards are all 100% handled by Steam, I'm afraid. Nothing to do with me, really, bar the graphics. As I understand it, they just drop randomly.

If you're still not getting anything, let me know and I'll see what I can find out from Valve :)

Yeah, it's not dropping any cards for me either and I've been playing for 2 hours. Also, really struggling to find games or players on the servers. Pretty much just been playing my partner over and over again.

Try restart your Steam and compunter. :)

Btw, You're not alone with Trading Card drop error (Trading cards forum, click!).

already have 3 cards since last night, last night one dropped but none anymore and just now while trying to find hidden monkey cave in tutorial another 2 dropped.

Thanks for that link Mr. Pineapple. I still dont have a single card after 6 hours of gameplay and that includes 3 reboots. I'm actually pretty upset about this because the cards have dropped in value by a lot over the span of these last few hours and now I've missed a big opportunity.

Hi - just to be totally clear, here, I'm afraid this is a Steam issue, and not something I can do anything about.

For my part, I create the assets and upload them to Steam's back end. That's all sorted and approved their end. There's no code whatsoever in Gun Monkeys related to Card drops, that's all 100% handled through Steam. As I understand it, they're dropped randomly during play.

Hopefully there'll be a fix soon :)

I appreciate you're help and I totally understand that it's Steam and not you. I'm upset with the system not the product.

i found one card - seems like they simply drop rare... odd ^^

they are definitely dropping. if not, restart steam.

i bought a 2 pack and the cards paid for it, so i got the game free.
100% sure they work fine.

they tend to drop about 1 per hour. you can even just alt tab out of the game,
and obtain them while idle in the menu.

Ha ha feel free to hang out in the lobby and collect them then ;)
[Q]uik Jul 8, 2013 @ 2:43am 
's what I did ^^ And yes, the cards paid for the game - some crazy people willing to pay up to 2€ for 1 card xD

Love that I can have the lobby up, and minimize the game, then I will hear if someone challange me, very handy! ^^
danthat  [developer] Jul 8, 2013 @ 3:59am 
Yes! Just need more people doing that!

Someone paid 5€ for my foil card :)

Cards work and drop properly, they even cost a dollar or more each.
