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.

Zeo, Necdilzor is asking for King of Fighters 2002:

https://www.gog.com/forum/general/ninja_giveaway_20/post3403

I directed him or her here.
Can I have Icewind Dale if it is available please? thanks
Thank you to the Point_Man for Torchlight. And to Zeo... the person... not the action figure or DLC! ;-)
I would be game "pun intended " for Outcast 1.1 :)
If it's still available could I ask for Halcyon 6? I've been interested in playing the base game for a while now, and the addition of the DLC has really piqued my interest! Thank you!
can we have a bit of transparency for gog gift codes that were given at the twitch event. i don't normally take things from gog giveaways because people have paid for them but directly-gog/steam, i don't mind because they're either given en mass or worthless :)

Sorry, can you clarify what you mean? You don't think, for instance, I should have given the gift code I got from the twitch event to zeogold, to include in this thread? If that's the case, I think you are wrong. You think I should have used my code anyway for a game I knew I wouldn't play? :S It's true that I got it for free, in a way, but I think "donating" it to this thread was the best use I could think of. :S

Think he says he wants to know which codes come from the event because he doesn't want to take codes actually purchased by people, but may ask for something if the donor got it for free. So quite the opposite of what you understood.

you can do whatever you like with your game codes. i don't take paid gog codes - even if you paid me ;) i wouldn't mind a couple of freebies. i have a couple of things i would have liked from the twitch event. if someone donated these, i would like to very much play them. otherwise i'll just wait for a sale and pick them up then.

Ah, now I see what you mean. :) Also thanks Cavalary. Sorry, I'm a bit slow right now with English.

Yes, I suppose zeogold can indicate games that came from gog gifts (like from the twitch event), even if they were not plentiful (like those indicated by the dagger symbol).

In my case, just so people know, the 'Unreal Tournament 2004 Editor's Choice Edition' listed here was "donated" by me, got it from the twitch event, so I didn't actually pay for it.

That was my interpretation as well, though as to the issue itself I tend to think that's timmy010's problem. ;)

I'm not unsympathetic to it, actually, and it's the exact reason I'm fairly active in the non-gog GA, but ask for things rarely here. So I absolutely get it.

But it becomes more busy work for zeo for an issue that's really a matter of personal choice rather than an actual administrative matter.

Makotolia: Oh, is it? I was thinking it was something started with "under-" and ended with "ing" though ; )
Well, since "underpantsing" isn't a word, I'm guessing it's "underling."

Underparking?

May I try Tangledeep? That is a perfect ecample of a game I would never get myself (no SNES nostalgia) but maybe I am missing something important?

BTW have you put it on the list 5 minutes ago or not? I haven't check the list recently so I have no idea ;)

Enebias: May I request Titan Souls?
Granted.

depanza: Hi Zeo and all of the benefactors of this giveaway. First of all i would like to thank you all for this kind of things. I am new in gog and i think ive found a nice place in this community.
I dont think there is any left but if there is some Nwn diamond left i would love to have it.
Again thanks and my applause for you all.
I'd normally deny this due to lack of activity, but there's enough of 'em, so eh, sure.
Granted.

azote87: Can I have Icewind Dale if it is available please? thanks
Seems like you don't really have any activity on the forum outside of asking from things from giveaways. Participate in some other threads first. Join some conversations, swap some jokes, just generally muck about the place, then come back later after you've been more active.
Denied due to lack of participation.

You got beaten to it, I'm afraid. Sorry.

Oh, I didn't even look it up and hadn't noticed the second one was DLC. May as well take that, too.
Granted.

I don't think I can do that considering that I didn't even know there was a Twitch event. I have no clue which games up there, if any, have been donated due to this.

Granted.
Your ESP was off by a few hours, but hey.
Big thanks to Zeo and DampSquib for the awesome games! I can't wait to play Halcyon 6 once the weekend rolls around!
The monthly limit now resets, so all of ya who just received a game are in the clear for another.
