Do you know any free game on Steam Store that drop cards? Or any paid game that you currently gets for free? As far as I know, Grimm, HITMAN™ 2 and The Descendant provide us these free card drops, while Glare1more is a paid game that you could get for free through some ways. If you know any other game that fits these conditions, feel free to share. I will update the list if there's more games.

Tip: Even if the game doesn't give you a +1 on your library or drop cards, get it! When the dev fix the problem, it will start to drop cards (if the game has it) and count +1 on library. The games Dark Matter, Glare1more and TRAPPED are a proof ot that.

Note about "Estranged: Act II": The game is currently in early access and doesn't drop cards, but according to the dev, when the game is out of early access, it will cost something, and if there's a popular request, he can add trading cards in the future, so I recommend you all to add a comment there asking for trading cards and add this game to you library right now while it's free to guarantee your cards.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“We plan to charge a nominal amount for the game once it is complete, but during the early access phase it will be completely free of charge.”

• FAQ

The game is not showing up on my library, doesn't count +1 and is not dropping cards, what's the problem?

  • Even paid, the game is considered as free-to-play for the Steam Store. For this reason the game doesn't count +1 on your library. When the developer fix the problem, you will not able to get the game for free anymore, and for those who got it before, the game will now be show up on your library, will count +1 and drop cards if has it. Also, you can install the game any time through the own Steam Store button "Play Now"

The game was fixed and I'm still not getting the cards, what I did wrong?

  • Nothing, you just have to add another license to your account before, so the library will update and start dropping the cards, for example a free game. Thanks lemusz for figuring it out.

How can I add these games to my account?

  1. From ASF's own console (recommended!). If you don't know how, read this.
    • Can I do this from a mobile? Unless you have ASF running somewhere and another Steam account to send the command to, no.
  2. From SteamDB, just go to the link and hit the green "Free" button (may not work!).
    • Can I do this from a mobile? No.

I think, that Hitman II has been already removed as well. No free download from SteamDB, and using app_license_request 272196 in console didn't work.

Also, is there a reason to post ASF commands, instead of SteamDB links, which seem to be easiest to use?

Are you sure? It seems to be fine here. I tried in an account recently and got the game plus the free drops.

The ASF commands are for a specific package. If you try to install it through the SteamDB button I believe it won't work. But I'ill add the SteamDB links for who wants to try it.

I'm not really sure. I have never before used the console, but app_license_request 272196 in console certainly doesn't work for me.
I'm getting:
"] app_license_request 272196
Requesting license for AppID 272196 ... "

and nothing more happens, just normal report about Steam client's activities.

And thx for SteamDB links. Just used them for MetaMorph, Mirt, the Drone Racing and VR Paradise, though I have no idea, if they would work for all games listed. Unfortunately, I have used from SteamDB, before I've realized, that I could use them to check, if my console works alright.

Steam client doesn't use the same method as ASF does, and SteamDB only creates a link for Steam client to do app_license_request without putting it in a console.

ASF does a request to the network and the store, which is equal to trying Steam client and sending Steam store request, except second one is not always available for consumer to use. In short, you can't really use app_license_request or SteamDB as alternative to addlicense, but only as alternative to addlicense in specific cases that work with multiple ways.

This is also why ASF works with both subIDs and appIDs (first one is store, second one network), while SteamDB and client can only work with appIDs, and eventual mapping of appID -> subID for specific cases.

Thank you, that explains my issue with Hitman II. I've checked the ASF page, but it's not really my piece of cake, so at least for now I will stick with those goodies, that I can get by SteamDB or by console.

Had the same issue, the SteamDB link throws you off. It's actually HITMAN™ 2 – Starter Pack what you activate via ASF.

To do so without ASF, just go to the Store page of Hitman 2 then press "Play Game" below the box "Play HITMAN™ 2 – Starter Pack". For me it showed then "SUCCESS! HITMAN™ 2 is now registered to your account on Steam." and done. :)

Yeah, had the same thing happen, and then I checked my activations and it seems like I got Dark Matter back in 2017, so I thought that was the reason. Still, I couldn't find any evidence I ever got cards of the game in the badge browser. But then I added something else to my library earlier today and out of nowhere ASF started to farm the cards for that game. So I dunno, maybe try activating something else too and that will fix it.

So maybe people who have games with commercial license will have to pay someday or maybe after each instalation of the game you will have to pay. And I think Steam will ask people for their papers to see as what type of company you are registered.
