For the year 2019 I have decided to change it up a bit to make it a bit more exciting than the same challenges every month.
When I have asked least month about what people would like it seemed that some people missed having a new theme every month but people also did not want to be too limited either due to the low amount of unplayed wins or just being stuck with a very specific theme they don't like. So I tried to come up with something that would make everyone happy, it is not perfect but I hope that with some feedback it will turn into the best that it can be :)


As you can see from the title of the topic the theme for January is:

Cleaning out my closet

(Big thank you to Moony1986 for coming up with it!)

Games that qualify for it are:

  • Oldest wins - Games that are in the oldest 10% of your wins. If you already played them all, then the games in the oldest 20% qualify (and then 30%, 40%,…).
  • Wins idled for cards – Games that you have never played, just idled for cards.
  • Unfinished wins – Games that you have played before but never got around finishing them.
  • Neglected wins – Games that you’ve been meaning to play for a long time, but always ended up playing something else instead.

Since this months theme is incredibly broad I think everyone should be able to find some games that they can play so there is no need for me to add anything extra for those people who would happen to not have wins that would apply (that is bound to change in the next months)


Leaderboard

I shall add a leaderboard in the comments. For this month it will just be a simple leaderboard listing the number of beaten games, playtime hours and achievements for each person.

Here is a sample formatting for a table that you can use for you comments that would show all the data nicely. Of course feel free to add any columns that you would like for example a sub category of the challenge, date won, etc.

Game Achievements Hours of Playtime Status
Name of the game No. of achievement achieved / Total no. of achievements Hours played Beaten/Completed/Unfinished

You can copy paste the formatting for your comment here:

Game | Achievements | Hours of Playtime | Status 
:-: | :-: | :-: | :-:
Name of the game |  No. of achievement achieved / Total no. of achievements | Hours played | Beaten/Completed/Unfinished

Theme for March

Do you think you have a good idea for a theme for March? Leave it in the comments bellow. If I get more than 1 suggestion I will list them in the poll next month and the one with the most votes will become March's theme.


Giveaway

I might make a giveaway for the participants every once in a while (depending if I have any spare keys or not, won't be anything fancy, mostly just bundled stuff). Might be either a giveaway for everyone that has beaten at least one game and depending on the number of participants also a separate one for people who have completed the most. If there is anyone who would like to contribute a giveaway on a certain month feel free to contact me.

This month to kickstart the new year I will be sending a link to a invite only giveaway of Alan Wake's American Nightmare to everyone who has beaten at least 1 win in January.

Only other requirement is that you have made at least one public giveaway in the past to make the link delivery a bit easier.


Have already completed all your wins?

Then feel free to participate with your normal Steam backlog instead :)

*Technically I didn't beat the two episodes that have been released thus far, but I made the decision to consider it beaten for now.
I made it very close to the end of the material until a broken game mechanic made it impossible to clear a certain battle. According to the forums it is something you can't fix yourself if it happens to you and all I can do at this point is to wait for the devs to fix their mess. Quite irritated by the situation, but at least I have ANLP properly beaten for the month.

Game Achievements Hours of Playtime Theme Status
🎁 Regency Solitaire 17/17 (+17) 7.7 hrs Neglected/Oldest wins (August 2016) Completed
🎁 Cities: Skylines 47/97 (+10) 14.9 hrs Unfinished wins Beaten

(Note: I don't wanna "cheat" the leaderboards, but I'm including games gifted to me by SG users on here as well. I'm putting a 🎁 in front of the gifts.) Turns out I basically did the opposite of this month's challenge and played mostly new wins/gifts. :P

Been meaning to play Regency Solitaire for a long time and it was wishlisted as well, was nice to zen out to for a couple nights.
I was also given Cities: Skylines this month after I entered a GA for it and the user insanely kindly gifted it to me. I'd played it during both free weekends last year and really enjoyed my time with it, so excited to be able to sink my teeth into it even more!
And these don't count, but I won and 100%'d (achievements-wise) Redout: Enhanced Edition this week which has been an absolute blast and already one of my favourite games. The sense of speed and adrenaline you get is unreal, highly recommend!! Also completed Slash It 2 which was simplistic but intense, and "beat" Tragedy of Prince Rupert, which sadly didn't love as much as I'd hoped (plus would randomly get the worst fps drops and force restarts).


Yay it's back. :D Took a look at my stats from last year and I participated every month, beating 29 wins/gifted!
For future reference to myself, I'm starting 2019 having finished 85% of my wins and 61% of gifted. (Compared to Jan. I said, "Last year I beat 15 SG wins through these challenges. Starting off 2018 with 69% of wins beaten.")

Managed to play all of my wins from 2018 (besides my most recent win at the end of the year). Definitely happy and grateful for the games I received, so many fantastic new favourites of the year! Excited to see what the new year brings. :)

The second half of 2018 was a bit hectic. Many things changed in my life, including my PC. Although I continued to play my SG wins during this crazy time, things weren't predictable enough to participate in these fun monthly challenges.

I wish everyone a great 2019 filled with fantastic SG-wins-playing experiences and I welcome you, Mouse, as our new "play a game you won on Steamgifts" Overlord!

Last year I beat 24 wins (85/111 total). Hopefully 2019 will be even better.

I'll start with Distrust, even though it does not qualify for the monthly theme, since I won it through Playing Appreciated.

I'll follow with Black The Fall (idled for cards) and Styx: Shards of Darkness (unfinished).

Comment has been collapsed.

Okay I go first, maybe someone follows then 😉

March, named after the roman god of war leads me to the following suggestion:

"Marching on" challenge (to keep the song name references 😁)

  • Games with war topic
  • Shooters
  • Walking Simulators
  • Survival games
  • Fighting games
  • And for people finding it hard to find a fitting game "long wins" would also fit as a march is usually quite long 😉

If only to have a fun poll next month, I'll post an alternative suggestion! :)

March is the third month and 3 has a special place in human culture, originating from early mythology and surviving until the present day. Therefore, I suggest the "Rule of three" theme with the following options to choose from:

  • The third oldest win
  • The third newest win
  • Games that have a "3" (or its variations) in their title
  • Games that have a "3" in their app ID
  • Games with exactly three playable characters
  • Games where you have to obtain exactly three of something (three parts, elements, special magic items)
  • Games with cats in them :3
  • (and finally) Any three SG wins, but only three (Four shalt thou not play, neither play thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out!)

But Valve doesn't know what the number 3 :D

You're right, I forgot about Valve and their special relationship with this number. We should probably add one more option:

No idea what I'm gonna play, I know I'll at least get 1 game finished though since I'm gonna be a picked a sg win so we will have to wait and see. I'll also look and consider what else I might feel like playing. Good job on the changes your doing, glad to see this staying with a little bit of everything. Mostly staying the same with a little bit of the old themes and even considered adding in prizes. Now your poll I think I can manage 1 in a whole year even if I wasnt doing it this month but that sad 1 saying no. We need to get them the best win ever!

Oh im so stupid im playing a sg win now. dont mind me saying I have no idea what I'll be playing for this

I guess that one game is Ara Fell? I just approved it for PA earlier :) If you started it last year feel free to reply to my comment above since it would count as unfinished :)
Yea I thought a little bit of everything and seeing what sticks might be a good approach :) There is 2 people saying no now, which is quite surprising to me, playing a single win in a year should not be a hard thing at all. (unless you have played all your wins already, but there is an different option for that).

Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth 25/41 14 Completed

This is my first time joining such challenges on SG so I hope I'm doing it right :) Happy 2019!

Progress updated: 5/1/19 --- 8/1/19 (All done! :) I was not disappointed by the story - it is as epic as the miniseries I've watched perhaps even better because in this game, you actually get to make decisions that can have major consequences)

Happy 2019 to you as well! ^^

Nice win! Hope you will enjoy it :)

The only better thing to do would be replying to this so the comments with games are together, but it does not disqualify you or anything if you don't. I shall remember to look down here for your progress :)

So do you get people to just comment on your comment to keep everyone's progress together?
I have actually read that spoiler part and yes it was confirmed. Ill just keep this here so we dont have a random deleted comment
Ill remember to do it like that from now on since before I was just posting it as a new thing on its own

And updated the leaderboard :) I can't tell how much Watch Dogs was played this month so I just went with the full 40 hours. If it was not 40 hours and you have an estimate how much it was please feel free to let me know :)

You can check it more or less when you enter lately played games on steam:

Oh man I am an idiot and forgot that even existed, thanks! I usually just check on the achievement page but I couldn't do that for Watch Dogs since it doesn't have any. I will edit the time in the leaderboard then even if it won't change much and you will still say on the top ^^

Congrats!

Bought the sequel of the Inner World during the Christmas sale, might as well tackle it, considering my small backlog group is also having an adventure theme for the first quarter.
I hope I'll have time for it this weekend, because I won't have much gaming time beyond that. :|

Feel free to edit any qualifying wins you have played into your comment so the bottom if the leaderboard will look more happy :P

I prefer the 2nd one over the first one, but they are both great games ^^

I would love to, but I fear that none what I am playing currently qualifies... As I have started them after this event started, so I am not sure I could include them here. ;)
But at least Monthly challenge on BLAEO looks promising. :3

Maybe something that would fit under neglected wins?

The list of games for the BLAEO challenge is to long for me to bother checking them, but I did see Cat quest there so I might go finish that.

How about "Wins idled for cards"?

E. g. you have zero achievements in "Snake Pass", "Unbox: Newbie's Adventure" and "Kholat" so I guess you just idled them. Can't say if these would be good choices, as I haven't played them myself but maybe you find something nice at your wins with "Steam trading cards" :)

I have been meaning to tackle my unfinished wins actually, so I can maybe reduce the absurd about of games I have installed (over 170). I just haven't had the time to get around to that yet except spending about 15 hours in Cook, Serve, Delicious 2, but that has not been enough yet to complete the game.

I do very much appreciate your effort to look through my games (and you are 100% right about them just being idled) but I am not missing those, just missing the time :/ Do you happen to have a time machine hidden somewhere? :P

Haha unfortunately I don't have one. This would be quite handy. Or such a time thingly like in Harry Potter. I could finally start to clear my movie and series backlog too (which is even bigger than my game backlog) ;)

I concentrated on finishing some games this month too. All of them where wins which were part in a former "play a game you won on steamgifts" challenge. I marked all of them with the ESGST tagging function either with "unfinished X" or "unfinished Y" which means that I either am not able to finish them (because of missing skill, errors in the game or a missing DLC) or I could with a little more time. The latter I try to complete this month.

But I guess it's a little more complicated for you as the percentage of completed wins are definitely higher then for me =)

WIshing you good luck with Cook, Serve, Delicious 2 then ;)

Dammit! I was really hoping you had one :(

You did some great progress this month already! Completing as many games as you have (even if they were started already) is a pretty impressive thing! ^^ TIL that you can tag games with ESGST. I already use BLAEO to categorize all my games, but you never know when it comes in handy. Thanks for making me aware of it :)

Thank you! I am happy to say that after spending the whole afternoon playing it I am 2 achievements and somewhere around 2 hours away from completing it \o/ And now I get to regret deciding that I am going out this evening or I would have been able to be done with it today already >.>

Hey, not sure if it was a good idea or not, but I made a few giveaways for members of the Steam group. So in case you are still part of it, you might want to check... or not.
The links are in the group's discussions tab. Or you can find them by browsing the Group section on Steamgifts.

The group is a leftover from when Skanda used to run this thread and the people in it are the people who used to participate back then (which are also some of the people who participated now too). While I am set as admin there I actually can't invite/kick people out, I need to talk to Skanda about it but it might take a couple of days.
If you want to reach people who participated in this one invite only GAs would be better, but if you are generally interested to just give to people who participated in the past months 👍👍

Edit: sent Skanda a message about it, hopefully she answers in time so I can approve some more deserving people into the group :)

Maybe I should have asked before doing them... oh well.
And I'm cool with having anyone who participated (for real) at least once to get the games. Life gets in people's way, but at least I know that they actually might play their wins one day.

I have gotten the right to invite people now so I will try to get everyone who participated this month in once I get the time.

So I finished my challenge for this month and will try to get unfinished games from my backlog in the remaining days of January. First one is Portal, which I beat years ago but didn't complete it yet =)

Looking forward to next months challenge :D

Portal, which I beat years ago but didn't complete it yet

Can you please let me know how much of a pain in the ass it is to complete once you are done? I am in the same situation as you.

Glad to hear! Same here too even if it will have me digging around my wins a bit to find something that applies to the theme :) It will be up a tiny bit later than usual due to IRL stuff, but I will try my best to have it up by the end of the first day

I would actually be surprised if you didn't find any whitelist GA win or win from a whitelisted user among your wins ;)

Regarding Portal... I'm actually not sure if I will be able to get all the achievements for the challenges, they are quite tough (or I'm just too bad 😁)

Oh I definitely have some, it just takes a bit more effort to find than just looking at a nice sorted BLAEO list ;) I took a look at my last 10 pages (225 giveaways) of wins and I found 5 unplayed wins that I have won from giveaways that included whitelists. I will probably just be very lazy and pick one of those :P
And amusingly enough on the 10th page I did also spot something I won from you, but its DLC so I am not really sure I could add that to the played as the base game wouldn't apply to the theme :/

Oh that doesn't sound too fun :/ I wish you the best of luck with them! ^^
