Greetings GOGmates!

After a short break, The Community Giveaway, an ancient tradition of the forum previously carried on by the renowned veterans IAmSinistar, moonshineshadow, zeogold and finkleroy before me, is finally back. First of all, a big thank you to the previous giveaway mantainers, who did a great work and helped a lot to improve this community.

Previous editions can be found here:

Please set your chat settings so that you can chat with everyone, or add me to your friends list so that you can be able to chat with me if you want to send any donation or receive a gift. Only GOG keys will be accepted in this thread.
In case you want to donate any non-GOG key to the community, finkleroy is running a thread on discord that accepts keys for any platform. Feel free to contact him.

Please send all donations for this giveaway directly to me.

If you want to discuss the rules or other circumstances related to this thread, please do it in the following thread:
https://www.gog.com/forum/general/gog_community_giveaway_tradition_discussion_and_poll

I normally don’t reply "you're welcome" every time someone thanks me. Instead I'll say it right here and now. To everyone who has thanked me in the past and to everyone who will thank me in the future, you're welcome!

So, how does this thing work?
The short version:
* If you are an active member of GOG community, you can ask for a single key among the ones available here.
* If you are the first eligible member to do it, you’ll get the gift.
* You can only get one gift per month.

The complete rules are listed below. Please read them to get the full idea.

*****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 and the rules of this giveaway. If you'd like to pick and choose who gets what yourself, you'll have to open up a giveaway of your own.
I won’t request games or accept nominations people make for me for this giveaway.

#2. Only reputable members 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 recently and 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 at my discretion.

#4. Keys are first-come, first-served.

#5. Ask in the thread. No requesting via PM unless you've already requested in the thread and I somehow missed it. You can only request one key per post (even when asking for daggered keys) and requesting several gifts in order of preference is not allowed.

#6. 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. The giveaway goes by calendar month. The beginning of each month is at midnight on the first of the month in my time zone (CET/CEST depending on the date). Please note that daylight saving time can begin and end at different times in Europe compared to other parts of the world. A good website that explains time zones is timeanddate.com.
In any case, you can check the current hour and date of my timezone here

#7. Please refrain from editing a post that includes a request. Please carefully consider what you want to request before you request it. If you need to change your request, please wait until at least 10 minutes after you made your original request and post a new message. If you post before 10 minutes have passed, the forum will automatically merge the two posts, which will result in an edited post. All posts that include a request or nomination will automatically be declined if they have been edited for any reason, even if it's because the GOG forum merged two of your posts.

#8. You are only allowed to request keys for yourself. Every granted key must be redeemed by the account that requested it. If you would like to request a key for a friend or family member, they need to meet the eligibility requirements and you need to nominate them for it. If a donor notices that a key they donated was redeemed by a different account than the one that requested it, please let me know about it via PM. We'll all have to have a chat about what happened, and I'll take it on a case by case basis. If there are repeated issues with the same user breaking this rule, it will lead to them being banned from the giveaway.

#9. If a game's DLC is listed alongside the base game, you're free to request just the DLC. The only way it would be required to be a packaged deal is if it's requested by the donor. When this happens, I will make a note of it on the list. This is true of all keys, including the daggered keys that include tons of games. If you'd only like one or two games, that's fine.

#10. Some games are on a multi-game code. If given such a code, only redeem the game(s) you were granted. IF YOU VIOLATE THIS RULE, YOU WILL BE PERMANENTLY BANNED FROM THE GIVEAWAY.

#11. Nominating other members is allowed and encouraged. The nomination will only be accepted if the nominee falls within the terms of this giveaway. If a key is granted to a nominee, it will count toward their monthly limit. 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 removed from the list 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 Nominations For Me Now" list. If you wish to be removed from this list, let me know in the same manner.
You are limited to making two nominations per month. If the nomination is declined by the nominee or by me because it would exceed their monthly limit, it will still count toward your limit, so please check the list of users who have received a non-daggered game during the current month to ensure that the nomination would not exceed their monthly limit, and if you have the ability to see what games are in their library, please ensure that they do not already have the game.

#12. If you wish to make a donation, please send me a chat message containing the keys. You will receive full credit for your donation and yourname will be added to the list of donors. You may, however, request to be anonymous, and I will honor this request.
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.

#13. Donors are welcome to check if a key has been redeemed by the user who requested it. If a key has not been redeemed, and it has been at least 72 hours since the key was granted, the donor is welcome to contact me. Upon being notified by the donor, I will notify the giftee that they must redeem the key within one week from that moment. If they fail to do so, the key will be returned to the giveaway.

#14. No code-dropping of any sort. Please. I know you mean well, but I'd rather you donate to this giveaway. If you want to simply drop the code, there are threads for that purpose.

srhill: Thanks for managing the giveaway, and thanks to MarkoH01 for the key!
You're very welcome. I loved playing Goetia but be warned: it is definitely meant for those who don't mind trying things out and beating challenging puzzles. Hope you'll enjoy it. :)
