That's right, everyone, the latest event is finally here! Welcome to...

Grez's Trash Typhoon™ 2019!

Even bigger than a Trash Tornado™, this Trash Typhoon™ is making landfall and carrying all sorts of garbage in its wake! Swirling around in this giant storm are two hundred twenty six giveaways!

The fun begins when you open the slide show and start stepping through the story. All of the GAs are hidden behind objects that are part of the slides in the deck. Most of them are pretty obvious, but some are a little bit harder to see. Search each slide carefully to be sure that you found them all. The GA breakdown is as follows:

201 regular "trash" GAs - these are found directly in links on objects in the slide deck. Just hover to see if your mouse pointer changes, and if it does, click away to open up the GA!
20 "better" GAs - these are found on some of the GA pages for the trash GAs. They represent bundle games that are more valuable than the average trash GAs, or may be games that I just feel are really good or classic.
5 NON-Bundle GAs - these are also found on some of the trash GA pages.

So, for those of you who keep lists and things, if you find all 201 links in the deck, you should have revealed all of the better and non-bundle GAs as well. Be sure to take a quick look at each GA while you're busy clicking on the enter button so that you don't miss them!

Also, starting with slide 3, every slide will have Vladimir Putin somewhere on it. As with other things, sometimes he is very easy to spot, and sometimes he is a bit more well-hidden. But he will be on every slide from that point on...because Putin is everywhere. You cannot escape Putin!!! 🤣

All GAs are level 2+, which means that the entry bar is set low so that lots of people can participate, but you can't be a 100% leecher. You need to have given at least a little bitty bit back to the community. If you're not there, you can easily be there in 24-48 hours for about five bucks, BTW. Level 2 is a piece of cake. The train is running for two weeks (expires at midnight CST May 29th), so you have plenty of time to find all of the trash.

As always, "trash" is a relative term. Some of the trash is actually pretty good trash. Others...well, they're literally unmitigated garbage. You'll have to sort through it all and make the decision as to which is which for yourself. Or don't, and just enter everything. Either way, it's all good by me. 😉

Ok, that's everything that you really need to know. I suppose that means that its time for you to enter the typhoon! Have fun!


Additional notes:

  • A million thanks to dys, who once again helped with this event. I absolutely could not have gotten this result without him being involved. So everyone please send some love his way. Make sure that he has pictures of all of your cats and children. 😜🤣 Ok, maybe not that. But hey, if you wanted to find something on his wishlist that's on sale, that might be something cool to do as a group. In any case, he was instrumental to this event, so please tell him thanks when you get a chance.
  • I had created screentips/tooltips for all of the GAs in this deck when I originally made it in Powerpoint, but these did not transfer during the conversion to Articulate. It's too bad because, although its original purpose was simply to keep hyperlinks from automatically being added as screentips, I ended up being very, very silly with things and the resultant deck is loaded with puns, plays on words, and terrible Dad-level jokes. At least 10% of them may have actually even been funny. :D In any case, once the event is over, if anyone is curious enough to want to go back through things and see these, let me know and I'll grant you read-only access directly to the Powerpoint deck.
  • We continue to learn something new every time we do an event like this, and this time we were able to make the graphics look a LOT better! I was bummed on the last Trash Tornado™ with how degraded some of the graphics were. dys figured out that it was because auto-scaling was turned on. So, this time we chose a fixed resolution that should be below any normal/average display (other than a phone) that people have, and things are greatly improved. But, I wouldn't try to do this on your phone. That's not going to be a good experience, so be sure to play on your "real" device. I strongly suggest that you maximize your browser for the best experience. Also, there are a tons of graphics in this one, so when you switch pages, give it a couple of seconds to load. Everything has been tested on multiple browsers and should work perfectly.
  • This kind of event is the perfect time for me to "clean house" in terms of old/weird/forgotten keys. More importantly, this time around it's where a lot of my remaining Otaku keys went (I mean, this IS a "trash" event, and those b@stards ended up being the biggest trash of all). Anything included here was checked against the removed games list before the GAs were created, so everything should be ok. However, with this many GAs, the chances are pretty good that something somewhere may not go according to plan. If that happens, I ask that you understand and allow me to delete any problematic GAs. If this happens to you, I will try to find a consolation prize for you, which I will gift directly to you via Steam IM.
  • BTW, the Putin thing is just me being silly. You should not read any political statement or suggestion into anything, because there isn't one. I just started grabbing all of these random Putin images and finding funny places to put them, and when I showed it to my teenage son, he started to literally LOL. So, I knew that I was on to something and decided that he should be virtually everywhere. 😁

Do you plan to publicly express your excitement for my next upcoming event? How are you going to do this?

Yes! My friends and I have prepared a Tick Tock video for you! [for the old people around here, this is what all of the kids are doing these days]
Yeeeeeeeeesssssssssss! Nudes sent. ( ͡⊙ ͜ʖ ͡⊙)
You didn't already see that video I sent to you earlier? See if your porn filter kept it out of your inbox.
Yes, yes! I wanted to do skywriting, but can't afford it, so instead I wrote on my bare chest with chocolate syrup. Check your Instagram DMs. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I'm so pumped about you giving away more games that I'm giving you games. Check your Steam IM for keys. [Jumps up and down in excitement]
Wait...what? No, just...potato, man, potato...which I used as a prop in my naked photo shoot to show HOW FREAKING EXCITED I AM! :D

I know i am old but what is Tick Tock?

Tick Tock is an application that allows you to record a 15-second video and add predefined effects to it.
Then you share your video and compare your number of like with your friends to know which one has the biggest ;)
I'm old too, but I have a niece who made me discover this... so happy :)

Ah, In the ol' days we just did other things to see who had the biggest. :}

But seriously what's the fun in 15 second clips? But also heard about some 1 second clip thing also?

yeah it was called "musically", now it's called "tik tok", it's just an application for teenagers in which they can dance to a short excerpt of a song (or even dialogues and such) and act accordingly to words and rhythm

I know you're an old timer and used to your sundials, but we have these new things called clocks that tell you the time and make a Tick Tock sound.

Ha ha ha ha...yeah, even as a joke, maybe I should have put an 18-and-up caveat on things. 😆

For the record (for anyone who has a difficult time deciphering my sardonic and often inappropriate humor), please don't send me any actual nudes. Unless you're really hot. And over 18. [still kidding - see what I did there? 😅]
