By now you should be familiar with how these giveaways work. Let's get this party started.

What I'll do is post a PC video game from Steam. If you would like a copy of the posted game, then thumb the post. After about 5 days or so, I'll draw a random winner using this tool and gift it to them through Steam.

Note 1: You must have a Steam account first. You must also be an active VGG user that has registered at least over a year ago. If you registered less than a year ago, geekmail and I might let you participate.

Note 2: Last giveaway I noticed a few people were winning a majority of the games. I'd like for as many people as possible to win something, so to make things fair I may enforce a cap on how many games you can win. I'm not sure how that will work at this time.

Feel free to jump in help spread your own cheer.

GAMEZ!

EDIT: Note 3: By default your thumb counts for you an you alone, unless otherwise declared by the person running the particular item.

Dungeons of Dredmor - Complete

Fun and challenging yet accessible roguelike. It's a great introduction to the genre. For those scared about the concept, permadeath can be turned off and there are multiple difficulty levels.

La-Mulana

Like Super Metroid, but bigger and tougher. I have yet to give it a serious try, but liked the little I played.

Game of the year edition. This is another Humble Bundle already-own-it copy up for grabs! It's too bad you can't thumb anonymously, because if you don't already own this game, you should be publicly ridiculed!

CONGRATULATIONS!
You win a prize!

After entering over 100 official BGG contests and winning nothing, I know that entering contests and not winning anything is lame. So, if you thumb this entry, I declare that you are a winner, and will receive from me *something*, whether it's a Steam Trading Card or a custom limerick or whatever. If you thumb this entry, and do not win any other entries on this list, you will win from me *something better*, which will be a Steam key for a game while my supplies last, because winning a game is more fun than not winning a game. Naturally, I will wait on this until after every other item on this list has been drawn, probably mid-January.

EDIT: Okay, since people seem like they will keep adding items to this list forever, I figured I'd just deal with this now.

Seth rolled 1d40 and got EVERYBODY!

By my calculations, the following people have already walked away with a game from this thread:
mylittlepwny || Eldritch | ColdFrog | jonnylawless | Ziilch | Military Muskrat | celiborn |u8nogard | lfisher | UnknownParkerBrother | StalkingButler | frumpish | Peter Loop | TheLongshot | greatsage | Grimwold | Jythier | tatoolo | rgatti | Gregzilla | cylonathalf |

You therefore get the consolation prize. If you would like a Steam background/emoticon/etc., find me online on Steam (Osirus) and I will give you a thingy there. If you would prefer a limerick, please geekmail me with your preferred topic and/or other restrictions, and I will send you a custom limerick. (You're welcome to share it if you like, but I won't be posting those in the thread since they're yours.)

As far as I know, the following people have not gotten any games from this thread, and so deserve actual consolation in the form of a game:
EsmiNi | Lord_Kristof | ImaginaryRoot | Kodeir | Doctor X | clandaith | xeromist | ThomasAH | andrewhodkinson | Twinge | Aarontu | Deviser | Dracoprimus | Ooops | Double B | eracer68 | Pentegarn76 |cafeine | Redbeardin84 |

Each of you can pick one game from my list of available Steamkeys by commenting here. I will update this list every time I send out a few games and thumb filled requests, so you only have to look at the last few unthumbed comments for conflicts. (If you want a game but also have a burning desire for a limerick or Steam thingy, let me know.) (If for some reason you already own everything and would prefer a limerick and a steam thingy, or a couple steam thingies, that is also okay.)

EDIT: Well, that was a fun giveaway. This is now closed.

I've got an extra copy of The Ship and The Ship Single Player. I can't speak to how good the single player is, but The Ship has become a LAN party staple for my group. Lots of fun in this silly little game.

edit: I'm sure there is a more scientific way to do this, but I'm just going to roll 1d9 to decide here. 1 will be the first person to thumb the thread, and 9 the most recent. 1d9 = (6) = 6

I don't care that it's not on sale or that it probably won't be. I just spent over 100 hours on this game and am looking at 100 more. Someone else play this with me so I can yammer on about it! I also want to see someone learn it from the ground up. They did a pretty clever job at teaching you how to play with both the tutorials, the difficulty levels and the puzzles helping you along to learn some of the little tricks.

The deal with the game:
It's kind of a roguelike - levels are randomly generated with randomly placed monsters and random monster types, and you kill them to level up, but all your resources (life, mana, potions, money, even equipment and equipment space) are incredibly limited. You regain life by leveling up or by exploring, but if you explore while a monster is injured, they regain life as well. Also, while you can just kill monsters your level or lower, you will probably fail by doing this. Ideally you will kill monsters higher level than you, because you gain a sizeable experience boost (you likely won't reach a level high enough to beat the boss(es) otherwise).

The game is hard, but it's fair, and every game is a learning experience, even if sometimes it's learning to pay better attention to the numbers.

This is one of my favorite games. PLAY EEEEET!

Congratulations to Celiborn!

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.
