Dungeon Keeper 1&2, Theme Hospital, Magic Carpet, 3 Populous games, and Syndicate 75% off!

Hey kids! Do you know what time it is? (No, please twell us uncle G-Doc!) It's time to start the holiday sales on GOG.com! (Yaaaay!!!). Yes, that's right. This time of year GOG.com rolls out the big promo guns. This time we begin with a great bundle of Bullfrog Favorites, that you can get with an amazing 75% discount! Let's take a quick look at the content of the first GOG.com holiday promo package, shall we?

You can learn how good it feels to be bad in Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2. You can cure such diseases as transparency and broken wind in Theme Hospital. You can glide the Arabian skies on your Magic Carpet. You can become a god-like being and lead your followers to glory in Populous, Populous 2: Trials of the Olympian Gods, and Populous: The Beginning. Finally you will dominate the future as the head of your Syndicate. Normally, to do all that you'd have to pay nearly $50. But for the next 24 hours that whole bundle of games can be yours for only $11.92!

That's not all, of course. You just saved over $35. There must be something cool you can do with it, right? As you browse through our catalog, you will notice that almost all of the games we offer have been discounted by 50% for the holiday season. That's no mistake! We really took our sharpest scissors to those prices, so you can enjoy literally hundreds of excellent games for half the regular price.

Enjoy our offers, grab the Bullfrog Favorites bundle for only $11.92, and fill your home with holiday gaming cheer! Happy holidays!
Cool promo. I wonder what the other bundles will be?
Started with the Bullfrog bundle, waiting to see the next bundle offers

Drakhyrr: I'm a little disappointed at everything being 50% off, as there have been better discounts at the weekly deals (even if only slightly better, usually 60% off).

Still, the dailies are looking better. I recommend waiting for them!
The daily sales are definitely better than getting one 60% off promo for the weekend.

And besides, almost everything is 50%. Even stuff that almost never goes on sale, like Gothic.
You just know you've bought too many games on GOG when you have the free game giveaway and most titles in this bullfrog bundle :)
so the old Steam sale rule that says "Don't buy anything that isn't a daily deal until the final sale day!" is now valid for GOG sales as well.
"Nice, you own all games from this promo."

I prefer 60% promo's to be honest, since I actually get to decide what games I want 60% on :)

With the daily I either buy everything for 75% or you're stuck with 50. And I really don't care to get all those other games in my library.

There is actually one game with a discount not at 50% that I can tell, and it's FTL at 25%. An oversight or is it because it had a promo a couple weeks ago?

There's several, it's mentioned in the thread.

HypersomniacLive: Sorry if this sounds stupid, but did GOG actually confirm that all the daily holiday promos will be 75% off?

JMich: Nope, only thing they've "confirmed" was that the deals will be bundlish...
I'm hoping we see a mix of bundles sizes and types.

Maybe another one will be a tiered pricing structure, where adding games increases the % off?

Plus, if the sale is going until January 3, and GOG does a new promo every day, that's going to be a lot of deals!
Awesome, I already have most of these - but great for those who don't!
I just noticed the facebook and twitter like icons at the top of the promo page :(
I bought a bunch of games at -50%, and got a discount of something like $35, but only one game was in the Bullfrog promo so the email confirmation just says "-$3" in the discounts area. :p
