Winter Game Giveaway 2020 - Round One (and Only?): Still accepting bidders!

As we lose yet another year,
We gather to bring winter cheer.
To friends no matter where they live
We pass on joy and gifts to give
Although the timing could be better,
I hope it's better late than never.
So yet once more I b
ring today,
ANOTHER DAMN GAME GIVEAWAY
2020 EDITION

Made it just in time before the new year starts, hope the holidays have treated you all well!
Welcome once more to the (slightly late) Winter Game Giveaway extravaganze, where I (and sometimes a few others) hope to spread some holiday cheer and pass on games that others might enjoy.  It is a long and storied tradition (which you can see the last of right over here, run by yours truly and a few others over the years.

This year's giveaway is going to be run a little differently from the others, due to the fact that my own obligations kept me from getting it up in a reasonable time and I'm not going to have a ton of spare time to run it.  Notably, we're going to simplify it a little bit!

Each round players will have ten points to spend on games they would like to win.  At the end of each round, games bid on will find homes, and a new one will begin.  This will continue until every player has won all of their prizes (eight) or called it quits.  The important distinctions here are two, namely:

1) Every game bid on will go at the end of the round.  Theoretically everyone could be done in a single round!  This means that if there is something you are interested in, make sure you have points on it - best case you can get it uncontested, worst case you stop someone else from taking it with a small bit without you contesting it.
2) Your points are replenished every round.  There are no bonus points given, you have ten each round so you are encouraged to spend them all and take risks to get what you want, the only way you lose is by not participating at all.

Please make all new bids in a separate post, and if you are taking away points please specify what you are removing them from.

As always, those of you who want to get in the way of me sending off all of my extra games/just want to be awesome generous people can post their donations in this quicktopic, making sure to check so we can avoid a bunch of duplicate titles.  Whatever those titles may be, please make sure to state where they're coming from (leftover steam keys, GOG, Humble Bundle, what have you) so people know what they need to play them.

Finally, to take part in the giveaway you must have:
1) Been part of the forum before this thread was created.
2) Have signed up in the thread prior to the sale ending and giveaway beginning.

_______________________________________________________________



Signups will end a week from today (January 7, 2020), though if we get a lot of late signups/interest this deadline can be pushed a little bit.

P.S. A special thank you to the original giveaway crew, all of our donors, and all of you for the inspiration, help, and enthusiasm that have made this whole thing possible for six years running!

Signups: 9/9

Hey, just a quick update for everyone.  I'm pushing back the gamestart a few days due to personal illness.  I'm not 100% sure when I'll be good enough to go through the startup work, but I'm hoping by Friday, January 10 we should be good.  Sorry!

Alright, so the game has officially begun!  So sorry for the delay.

I have way more games than I accounted for, so let's say everyone can walk away with eight whole games!  I'll also accept people jumping in up until the giveaway ends (though they'll have to wait until the round ends to be fair to people who joined in on time).  Check the start post for a game list.  Good luck!

The round will end in a week, on January 22 at 11:59.  Feel free to ask any questions here or through PM.

There are some really great games on this list, if anybody hasn't played them yet I would strongly recommend Hollow Knight, Dandara, Ass Creed Origins, Tacoma, and Snake Pass to anyone in roughly that order.

Anyway, 10 points on Darks Soul 3.
