The Pot of Gold Promo for St. Patrick's Day is what brought me to this wonderful forum, and with St. Patty's right around the corner, my first GOGiversary (on the forum) is approaching! Coincidentally, I bought my first game on GOG on March 19, 2010, so it's ALSO my fifth GOGiversary! ^__^

So what to do to celebrate this dual event, but to host a Very Genki Giveaway~!

You may think I'm just referring to my nick, but "genki" (Japanese) actually means "happy, energetic, optimistic, outgoing," etc, so it's a very happy giveaway~! And as additional info you may or may not want, "colleen" (Irish) means "girl," so the meaning of my user name is "Optimistic Girl" ^__^

I suppose we should have some rules, so here they are:
(Read carefully! Post that don't meet these requirements will be invalid.)

1. No scammers or leechers. If you're either or both of these, don't bother entering -- your post will be ignored ;p

2. Enter for yourself only. I want everyone interested to have an equal chance at their wanted-games.

3. No trading or re-gifting for the same reason as above.

4. List up to five games in order of preference, and please include the platform (ie. GOG) to help me keep track of things.

There will be multiple winners. How many? Who can tell? XD

Optional topic of conversation: Tell me how you put a positive spin on a bad situation.

The giveaway will end on the 17th in honor of my first dip into the forums.

Congrats to your Gogiversary! Thanks for the giveaway, not in as I have to keep as many games on my wishlist as possible so I can resist them in my anti-shopaholicism abstinence attempts. If I'd accept any gifts , it would sabotage my therapy :)

Your nickname is very fittingly chosen. I learned the meaning of genki when I saw this for the first time:

Sometimes when I walk and hike around, I sing this inside my head but only if the weather is nice and everything else is sufficiently genki!
Genki GOGiversary you genki girl! Let's have an awesome party with lot's of genki-ness and lot's of ~~~'s too! :DDDD

I would like to be only for Penumbra Collection (GOG) as i don't see anything else on the list that could possibly make me genki. :P


edit: I didn't see that there is a conversation topic.. oh I think I should check my eyes.. anyway, I'll edit my post tomorrow to add just what I do to turn a bad situation into something less bad.. me must go sleep! g' night! :)

edit #2: So, how do I add a positive spin in a bad situation? I always meet my friends for talk & laughing. It doesn't get better than this! If I can't meet with my friends for whatever reasons, I'm connecting my 4-string friend to the amplifier and there comes the joy! Honorable mentions: PC Gaming, movies (Pick of Destiny / Airheads helped me a lot of times) and the thought that after every storm, there is sunshine! ;-)

Not in. +1 and of course happy GOGiversary.

For your topic of conversation. Anytime I have a bad day or situation all I have to do is spend time with my doggy or kitty and my problems fade away. They make life so much easier to deal with =)
