My, my, it's almost Christmas. Time really goes by quickly. Seems like only yesterday when this 25 day giveaway began and here we are at day 21. I must admit I have liked the selection we have been given on the whole. While I haven't had space for all the games, I shall go back and check them out again soon. 

So, what does day 21 have in store for us? Well, two games are on offer, depending on your device. So, please use the 25 Days of Gifts banner in BlackBerry World. We have Monopoly for BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 owners and Monsta Brick Breaker for BlackBerry Z30 and Q5 owners. It doesn't seem to be region specific but please check BlackBerry World to make sure. If you have something different, hit us up in the comments or the forums.

Today's free download also seems to be showing up a little later than usual for some regions, so please wait a bit if it's not showing or refresh BlackBerry World. Some people have had luck with a device reboot, too.

For the full list so far, check out the original post. When you see tomorrow's free gift you can hit up the forums and let us know there.

Monsta Brick Breaker and Monopoly - Day 21 of BlackBerry's 25 Days of Gifts

Doesn't work here, I did refresh blackberry world, I think they forgot about q10 user... I don't even have the icon 25 days Christmas, I thought it ended.

Just search for Monopoly and it will show up. On my Q10 with the latest leak, I'm also not seeing the banner for 25 days when I launch BB World.

The 25 free gifts is gone on my BlackBerry World also Q10SQN100-2/10.1.0.4699 I did have a BBM contact share the freebie and I was able to download for free. I will try a reboot though.

Keep The Faith

I think I am getting tired of these games although awesome. Maybe apps or album or something. Or a music player

Yup... music player...thats it...........neutron music player.....I need it badly...as you know there isn't an equalizer in bb10 music player...and for me this is the worst thing about bb10 os

Posted via CB10

Out of all the apps on BlackBerry World, Neutron might be one of the few which are actually worth its price since (imo) it blows every other mobile player out of the water because of its format support, EQ and custom URL streaming support.

If it doesn't show up during this promo, you might want to reconsider purchasing it. This is coming from someone who's purchased only ~5-10 apps ever since owning a smartphone for past 5+ years.

It looks and functions just like the Android version (I have it on an android tablet I have) but it is not just a repackaged apk. It is a native BB10 app so performance is great.

The only downside for me is it tends to take about 5-10 seconds to start up. I usually use Neutron while my phone is paired with my car and the extra time I wait before it starts up can be inconvenient.

It's native I have it on the playbook but I deleted on my Q10 cuz I can't figure how to play ALL my playlists. I could play three of them but it highly technical which is fine but it's excessively frustrating and the dev didn't help out. I signed up for the forum but really just to play music, no thank you. Native BlackBerry player is fine for me.

Keep The Faith

Never say never! I never thought I was going to be able to install my own apps along side the company's BES stuff. But after losing a lot of customers to Apple and Android, sometimes the unthinkable happens. So I'm still hopeful that BlackBerry takes a play out of Samsung's notebook and natively allows us to off load some stuff like games and personal apps to the microSD card.

Loading apps on SD cards isn't going to get more people to join.... they have no incentive to do as you say...

Z10STL100-3/10.2.0.1803

No incentives? Really? How about doing whatever you can to not become irrelevant. BlackBerry was once king of the hill. They got knocked off their thrown for just that reason. The incentives are there. Is just a case of whether or not they can accommodate it in their OS.

Posted via CB10

To do that BlackBerry would have to enforce SD card encryption and that would make the SD card unusable in any other device.

It would be a good option though. I don't use my SD card in any other device...

Weird, the "25 Days of Gifts" banner is missing from BlackBerry World for me, and Monopoly is unavailable for my Q10. Monster Brick Breaker is listed at $1.99.

Hopefully there is a fix coming down the pipe, as I wouldn't mind having monopoly.

EDIT: Scratch that, I just did a manual search in BlackBerry World and it was there and it was free. The banner is still missing though and the link for BlackBerry world in the article leads to an "unavailable for this device" error in BlackBerry world on the Q10.

Yup just do a search for the gift and it will appear for you for free...but you should know what is the gift to search for it

Posted via CB10

Thank you for tip, I was having the same issue on my Q10. Found the games now, no banner... and I would have preferred the brick breaker game for free.

Posted via CB10

Have somebody share the link! I downloaded it even though the banner is missing on Q10SQN100-2/10.1.0.4699

Keep The Faith

It doesn't work for me either-- I've been downloading every day and now the banner is gone. Even after refresh there's nothing :( Q10 left out.... sadface

Posted via CB10

Monsta brick breaker is what Brick Breaker wishes it could be... I'm glad I bought it and didn't wait for BlackBerry to release that poor excuse for a game.

Posted via CB10

I confirm, Monopoly does say "Unavailable for this device" on Q10. Refreshing BBW, restarting device does not help. It’s a real bummer, my favorite pick out of this holiday giveaway and I cannot download it. Anybody with Q10 can confirm successful download?
P.S. Running the latest leak.

I wanted Monopoly. As a non gamer, this would have been a good install to show off the Z to thehaters.

Then I read the BB World reviews. It seems this software is for Androids... because it runs like crap on BB10, kills batt and runs temps up.

My BB is an Android free zone... going to stay that way. (is that why I never went through the random reboot phase so many whined about??)

BB until it is not CDN

I think the post is confused at the end. Monopoly is available on the Z series, not Brick Breaker. However I don't see any thing available for Q in BlackBerry World. Is there a problem with it?

Help! My 25 days of Christmas is gone! what happened I am in Miami florida and since early I have been checking rebooting but my 25 days of Christmas is gone its not showing up on my phone I have been downloading constantly but I have had issues with some downloads not installing like angry birds until now it doesn't install it says error.

had the same issue here on my Q10. just searched for it and it came up. I lost my 25 days of Christmas banner too. but Thanx for the tip

In Nebraska and got Monopoly on my Q10. Game is great and no issues, thanks Blackberry. Merry Xmas #q10love

Posted via CB10

Addicted to monopoly on my Q10. Works really well! It does drain battery relatively quickly and the device does get a little warm. No complaints from me though, thanks blackberry!

Some of you need to get in the Xmas spirit. You are getting tons of free apps and games! What are you complaining about?!
