I don't understand why they need a credit card number if the game is free.

I can add the game to my cart, but when I click "Checkout", the page just times out. Tried 4 or 5 times now...

You don't have to put in a real credit card number. Use a sample number and make up an expiration date

I got the sample CC Visa number to work. Remove all spaces, enter a date in the future, and just make up a name on card.

I have a feeling that eventually they will charge you for the game in the future and that's why they asking for the credit card number.

If they're offering it for free then turn around and charge you they'll get a ton of charge backs.

BPlay is a reputable business who have been around for a while. I seriously doubt they would pull something like this just to charge you $10 unknowingly.

I agree but there's still no way they're getting my CC# for a free game.
