Howdy, folks, and welcome to the next incarnation of The Community Giveaway, a tradition carried on by the handsome IAmSinistar, the lovely moonshineshadow, and now, the Puzzlemaster himself!

*****RULES*****
PLEASE READ THESE BEFORE ASKING FOR ANYTHING.
1. If you donate a key to this giveaway, you're leaving who gets it FULLY UP TO MY DISCRETION. If you'd like to pick and choose who gets what yourself, you'll have to open up a giveaway of your own.

2. Reputable members ONLY are accepted. By "reputable", I do not mean having a high rep, but having an active presence in the community. Who I deem reputable is AT MY DISCRETION.
As a general guideline, you must have a non-recent registration and have been actively participating in the community for at least a month or so. I WILL BE THE JUDGE on whether you are reputable enough or not.

3. You will be banned from this giveaway if:
- you are rude
- you are on the Known Scammers list or have otherwise been shown to be an alt account/impersonator/troll
- you lack meaningful community participation (which usually means that most of your participation is taking from giveaway threads)
- you knowingly give empty/false/unusable codes
All blacklistings are, again, AT MY DISCRETION.

4. No code-dropping of any sort. Please. I know you mean well, but I'd rather you donate to this giveaway.

5. If you wish to make a donation, give me a PM containing the keys. You will receive full credit for your donation and your name will be added to the list of donors. You may, however, request to be anonymous, and I will honor this request.

6. Nominating other members is allowed, and encouraged. The nomination will only be accepted if the nominee falls within the terms of this giveaway, however. The nominee has a week to claim the game before it is up for grabs for everyone else again. If somebody has been nominated for a game, the game will be marked with an exclamation mark (!) until either redeemed or a week has passed. If you do not wish to receive nominations, either leave a request in the thread or PM me and you'll be added to the "no-gift" list on the OP. If you wish to be removed from this list, let me know in the same manner. Please limit the amount of nominations you make to around 3 a week.

7. The limit is one game per month. Exceptions are made for games with a dagger symbol (†), which indicates that they were given away en masse for free sometime in the past.

8. Keys are first-come, first-served.

9. Some games are on a multi-game code. If given such a code, only redeem the game you asked for. The malicious redeeming of extra keys will net you a nifty ban.

10. NO FEEDING THE TROLLS! In the event that a scammer or troll DOES arrive (and I have no doubt that they will upon seeing the very title of this thing), DO NOT PROVOKE THEM! I know who they are. You know who they are. Leave them be. I will NOT allow this thread to be derailed into a discussion about scammers.
If you're concerned that they're a scammer and I'm not noticing it, notify me via PM rather than clogging up this thread, please.

11. Ask in the thread. No requesting via PM unless you've already requested in the thread and I somehow missed it (which is unlikely since I'm on this forum a lot and this is one of the threads I lurk on frequently).

12. Only GOG keys are accepted for this thread. If you have a non-GOG key, I will accept it, but it will go to the non-GOG edition of this giveaway instead.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:
I will NEVER ask for keys to be re-sent. If you get a message asking for such, ignore it, as you're likely getting scammed.

GOG has changed the chat privacy settings to default to "friends only". If you wish to be contacted by anyone here in the thread, make donations, receive nominations, etc., please remember to change your privacy settings accordingly even and especially if it was set to "anyone" before. Go to "orders & settings" and then "privacy" to accomplish this. You can read more information here.


The available games available are listed in posts 2 and 3.

zeogold: Forgive me, folks. I've come down with a bit of a cold and am gonna be out of commission for a bit. I'll try to get through as much as I can, but it'll be kind of infrequent.
Take care and focus on getting well, that's what's important, don't worry about the giveaway.

Here.
First of all, zeo get well and eat a bit more if you need to;)

Now that we have a break, I'd like to give my thoughts on the "nomination" issue. I had a look at the old giveaway thread by moonshineshadow. At that time, it seems that there was an abundance of games and frequent nominations were fine in order to find good homes for the games before the list became too big. Now we have the Community Giveaway Zeogold Edition and, obviously, there are not so many games to gift, this month was an exception due to Christmas, etc. So restricting the amount of nominations per month is a good idea. The other part of the issue is the quality of nominations. We want fair nominations, not "blind nominations". By "blind nomination" I mean the nomination where one just finds the first person whose wishlist has the game that needs to be given away. There are people who have wishlists of 100+ games and people that have only a few. This means that the first category has a better chance to be nominated if the nomination is blind, and the result would end them getting many more games. For example, in this thread, BenKii, who has been doing a great job in the past, nominated 33 people. Out of these people, 1 was nominated 4 times, 3 were nominated 3 times and 7 were nominated 2 times. I don't know about you but I'd like games to be more evenly gifted and that would need more research. My point is that we are not in a rush to get rid of games, so let's take our time and put more thought into each nomination.

Take a ton of vitamin c tablets. That should help.

Not particularly. What Vitamin C you take above your body's requirements just gets peed out.

Tallima: What are you talking about? I gave you all my love but you threw it away! This year, to save me from tears, I'm giving it to someone special. (and my apologies go out to Wham!)

MarkoH01: Please NOT this song. I survived this christmas without even having to hear it once and I still wonder why the guy in the song simply does not learn anything from his mistakes because every year he tells us that he gave away his heart to the wrong girl and next year he is telling us the same thing all over again and promises us to do it better THIS time ... never happened.
I don't think it was a girl.

Om that note, i just looked up George Michael and found he died Christmas of 2016. I had no idea. I wonder if they're not playing it because of that?

Get well soon. Drink plenty of fluids and get a lot of rest. Eat some chicken noodle soup.
Zeogold, we can wait. Rest, drink plenty of liquids, rest some more for about seven days and you should start feeling better. Lots of rest is key. You get better faster that way. Be well.

5. If you wish to make a donation, give me a PM containing the keys. You will receive full credit for your donation and your name will be added to the list of donors. You may, however, request to be anonymous, and I will honor this request.
Since zeogold is currently ill (see posts above), it might be a while before your donation is added.

Feel better soon zeogold! If it is just a cold and not the flu, zinc works with the vitamin C and chicken soup to help you fight it off. If you can stand it, the wife puts chili seasoning in the chicken soup that really blasts viruses out. Kind of like the Pepper-up potion in those Harry Potter films. ;)

Ok. Take you time to get well. Health is more important than swag.
