PopCap Games,, is giving away their computer games to cash-conscious customers.

To celebrate St Patrick’s Day, the PopCap leprechauns have stocked their crocks of gold with FREE copies of PC computer game, Big Money, which normally retails at £14.95. The money-themed game means people can splurge with some virtual funds at a time when we are all counting the pennies.

PopCap makes casual games i.e. computer games for non-gamers. If you’ve ever puzzled over a crossword or a game of Sudoku, then you’re a casual gamer.
