Official Video Game Giveaway contest!
« on: May 18, 2015, 11:50:06 PM »
See this list of games?

(click to show/hide)

They've all been generously donated by @MunkiLord to stab some adrenaline into these forums. So now begins...

The Great Geekronomicon Game Giveaway


How do I enter?

You post. No, literally, that's it! Every single worthwhile, non-spammy post is a raffle ticket entered into this. At random times, I will be moved to give away a completely random PC game to a completely random person. The more you've posted, the higher your odds of winning a game!

How are you determining winners!?

When the mood strikes me, I will roll three dice:
- Forum Section
- Thread
- Post Number

Whosoever the number lands on will get a randomly selected video game. GAMES! Falling from the heavens! So many!

Can I pick my game or get a heads up as to when to post?

Nope and even nopier! We have too many games to get bogged down by a selection process. You never know what you'll get here... or when!

Anything else?

This should be a fun event for people over the next month or so. Please post as many productive things as possible. Please don't game the system. Please do bring in more people to post, because more people means more conversation means more valid opportunities for you to comment!

One question, if we win a game that we already have does it get returned to the raffle and we get nothing, or what? OR do we just get to have an extra copy of the game?

I'd give you an extra copy of the game.

But people are likely going to win multiple times, so you'll probably get some good games out of it.

Crusader Kings 2 is so much fun. You can make your own Game of Thrones style betrayals. I'm constantly sending away/plotting against/killing siblings, children, spouses, dukes, counts, etc.

I don't own any of these, and haven't heard of most of them.  This is an impressive gift.

There are ten sections.

Munki's the exclusive poster in one section.

Which means that, with the prize selection method I picked above, there's a 10% chance Munki will win any game.

Though I'd obviously re-roll that (as he's the one giving away the prizes), I hope this has been a brief lecture on the importance of posting a variety of things.
