2020's been a strange and - let's be honest - pretty awful year. And while it unfortunately feels like it could be some time until we get properly back to 'normal', we didn't see any reason not to bring back our annual bit of fun, where we release a herd of Flamedeer for you all to find, and for a lucky bunch to win a few prizes.
All of the information you need in order to play is on the special landing page which you can find >> HERE
This thread is the place to ask any questions about the hunt or share tips about where you can possibly find those elusive Flamedeer.
If you have already caught some Flamedeer and would like to trade them for others, go >> HERE

Posting deals using the word Flamedeer, or voting like crazy, will not increase the likelihood of our Flamedeer appearing for you; in fact, it will usually make it less likely. Constant refreshing of the site will not help you either, in fact, our Flamedeer are rather shy and usually wait a bit before showing up. FAQsHow do I play?
All hotukdeals members with an authenticated account can play and win. To play, you simply need to browse the website as usual and click on the Flamedeer appearing at random on your screen. The game can be played on our website and mobile apps.What are Instant wins and what are collections?
Instant win Flamedeer are a guaranteed win, provided your participation is in line with our T&Cs. Collections are sets of matching Flamedeer (same type, "normal", "silver" and "gold" level) that must be collected in order to win: any complete collection is a win! This means there might be an unlimited amount of "normal" and "silver" deers, but only as many "gold" deers as there are prizes.Can I only find gold if I already have the normal and silver of the collection?
Yes! One of each suffices, but you won't have a chance at catching a gold Flamedeer if you have only the normal OR silver.How do I trade?
To complete your collections, please post a request in the dedicated thread
and search for other members who have the Flamedeer you're looking for! You can then search their name on the Trade page of the game and chose from your and their collection what trade you want to offer. Once a trade has been accepted, it's forever! Make sure you know what you're accepting when someone offers you to trade: if you trade away a card you had only once, that's on you.What are the badges and how do I get them?
Badges are little awards that mark specific achievements on our website. There are badges for a certain amount of votes, deals, comments or likes received, and many other things. This enables us to show appreciation to members who contribute significantly to the community! During this game, some prizes are restricted to users who won certain badges – you must have won these badges before the beginning of the game to be eligible. Badges earned during the game will not be accounted for (but they will count for the next game).
