Why buy Mystery Games?
When you wish upon a Leprechaun Hat… you get a bundle of joy, surprise, and value every time.
With each Leprechaun Hat you buy, you get a good deal on some of our favorite hand-picked titles. It's a great way to broaden your horizons and try something you otherwise wouldn't. Every Mystery Game is worth more than the cost of a Leprechaun Hat, so every Leprechaun Hat can be "worth it".
What can I get from a Leprechaun Hat?
You are guaranteed a game currently on GOG.com worth at least 3.49 USD*, up to 19.94 USD*.
Mystery Games are randomly drawn from a pool of hand-picked standalone titles – that means no DLC, soundtracks, or other non-game content.
*Reference prices in the US - prices in your region may vary.
What if my Mystery Game isn't compatible with my system?
We can't guarantee that each mystery game will be compatible with your operating system and hardware. However, our standard refund policy still applies: if your Mystery Game is not compatible with your Operating System or your computer does not meet its system requirements, and you have not yet downloaded the game, you are eligible for a full refund.
How do I open a Leprechaun Hat?
Start by adding Leprechaun Hats to your cart, then proceed through checkout as normal.
You can do this on the GOG.com front page or when checking out your Leprechaun Hats.
Once you've bought your Leprechaun Hats, go to see your Leprechaun Hats and click on your Leprechaun Hat to open it.
Your Mystery Game will be revealed and added to your library.
Can I get duplicates of games I already own?
Short answer: No duplicates! You'll only get games you don't already own.
Long answer: No duplicates, unless you already own every single game available in the pool at the time of your purchase. If you already have all the games, you'll be notified before checkout and your Mystery Game will be converted into a giftable copy – this code will never expire.
I got a giftable, duplicate Mystery Game without warning – now what?
This can occur if you've added more Leprechaun Hats to your cart than the number you were missing from the available pool. If this happens, don't worry – you're eligible for a full or partial refund.
If this has happened to you, please contact our support team.
When is my Mystery Game chosen?
Your Mystery Game is chosen at random from the available pool the moment you make your purchase.
I bought a Leprechaun Hat and can't find it, what's wrong?
All your Leprechaun Hats are waiting for you here. Your Leprechaun Hat should appear right away – but if you still don't see it, give us some time to process your order. If your Leprechaun Hat does not appear after 24 hours, please contact our support team.
What if I don't open a Leprechaun Hat?
You'll be able to open your Leprechaun Hats until March 26.
After this date, your Leprechaun Hats will be opened automatically and the games added to your library, so don't forget to do the honors!
Can I gift a Leprechaun Hat?
It is currently not possible to gift a Leprechaun Hat.
However, if you own every game available in the pool at the time of your purchase, opening a Leprechaun Hat will give you giftable Mystery Game instead. If this is about to happen, you'll be notified before making your purchase.
Will the pool of Mystery Games change throughout the St. Patrick's Day Sale?
Some Mystery Games come in limited quantities, so we cannot guarantee availability throughout the entire St. Patrick's Day Sale. Will more games be added? Now that's a mystery, stay tuned for announcements on our front page!
When does the St. Patrick's Day Sale end?
The St. Patrick's Day Sale will last until March 19, 11 PM UTC.
