Event ended:

Probably no one will read this, but anyway here it goes:

Thanks to everyone who participated, except the idjits who won and didn't say thanks. I've not counted yet and there are 10 awaiting feedback, but I'd say it's about half of them. So I added some people to whitelist, and will add some people to blacklist.

Congrats to all the winners, specially to Tulekeeper and Scorpio90 who won twice in the train, you lucky ones. It seems that's not so extremely rare, as it once happened to me a while ago.

Congrats to me because I gave away 59 games and I love sharing and giving. I know not all the games were gems, but there were many good and interesting ones too.

On a more pragmatical side, I'm finally again above 1:1 ratio on sent games, total value, and contribution value. Tho it'll be 2022 before I can reach level 6. I don't think I'll have much money to spend on games when I have such a huge backlog. Still trying to slowly play games again.

Also, for my next train I can do +50 wagons at once, which is finally an acceptable number.

I also recruited 15 people for GG Players, thanks to everyone of them because you helped me to enhance that great community.

Not much more to say. Just thanks.

Original post:

Greetings everyone. Sorry for being so verbose. I'll save you Pascal's quote anyway.

Better late than never, here's my promised train for the start of the year. Sorry for the delay, for me 2020 hasn't ended yet. It's being a really rough time for me, has been for pretty much of a whole year, and it's still going on. Don't expect to see me visible on Discord or Steam.

However, even if I'm lazy and unmotivated to do this, I also feel I must do it. While a big part of my library came from my girlfriend as endless gifts, another big part comes from SteamGifts, people I met here, and things I learned here. I feel I owe it. While I was with my girlfriend, she encouraged me to trade repeated games, and mostly I did so, only putting half of them here for you. Now that she's not among us, I'm going to put all my untraded keys that weren't direct gifts from her as giveaways for you, about 50. And actually some that were gifts from her, but I'm keeping most for personal reasons.

Since I can't put all 50 keys in a single train, I'm going to do it in parts. Every day I'll add 8-10 wagons at the end of the train until I run out of keys. All giveaways will be level 1+ (almost), they will last 2 days, and start and end near noon UTC. If a wagon has a certain restriction, the previous wagon will mention it and maybe give you the chance to surpass that restriction, plus a direct link to the next wagon which is unrestricted. I know the usual restriction is that trains are invite-only. But I'm not usual. So probably most participants will find the wagons out in the wild, instead of through this post.

(Note: Whitelist-only giveaways will be level 0.)

Possible restrictions:

  • Groups. I'll put a link to a way to enter certain groups, which will be: Lootboy SG, Delete giveaway if key doesn't work, and GGPlayers.
  • Whitelist. If you are in my Steam friend list but you aren't in my whitelist, send me a message in a chat with your SG user link. If I've won a game from you and you aren't in my whitelist, contact me in such giveaway. If you've given me a game as gift personally, contact me here, I'll know if you really did so. If I am in your whitelist but you aren't in mine, contact me in a whitelist-only giveaway of yours where I've participated (must have been before now). I'll fix it ASAP and you'll be in my whitelist. Other than those cases, don't bother to ask me to get into my whitelist (on risk to be blacklisted instead).

If you are level 1 and in my whitelist, then you have a multipass. Mul-ti-pass. And you'll be able to enter all giveaways.

Not to be rude, but I will not answer personal questions, I don't want anyone to talk with, and I don't need words of encouragement. Other conversation is up to you. Everyone have a great and safe 2021. Even those in my blacklist.

Important stuff:

Winners: Please redeem and mark as received ASAP so I can add wagons without trouble.

Participants: thanking is not required but always welcome, either in the giveaway or in this thread. However, winning and not thanking afterwards in the giveaway will mean you'll be blacklisted without mercy. Also, all keys were revealed by myself, and they should be valid, unused and region-free; in the case there's some trouble, I'll ask politely for permission to either reroll or delete the giveaway, whatever solution is pertinent. I never had such problem with keys revealed by myself from HB or Fanatical, which are the bulk of the train.

If you spot an error, please say so here.

Updates:

  • 14th: Post created and the first 10 wagons are available. They will start tomorrow. Take your ticket and good luck.
  • 15th: The train will depart in 9 minutes, meanwhile 10 more wagons have been attached and will be available for entering tomorrow Saturday, around noon UTC. I'm very disappointed by the amount of people who didn't recognize the movie, so I'll not put the 500 copies of Cyphertrunk 2076.5 as final wagon.
  • 15th (bis): Secured some more games for the train, expected to be 60 wagons-long now.
  • 16th: Attached 8 more wagons at the end of the train, they will be available tomorrow noon UTC. The first 10 wagons will end tomorrow noon UTC too. Wagons 11-20 are accessable already.
  • 17th: More wagons added at the train tail, eight again, and again they'll open tomorrow noon UTC. I'll soon send the keys to the winners of the first wagons, in a few minutes. Wagons 21-28 open their doors.
  • 18th: Daily tasks done: 8 more wagons added to the end that will start tomorrow, 8 wagons that start now, and 10 wagons that ended just now. 16 wagons planned to be added tomorrow and wednesday.
  • 19th: Daily tasks done: added 8 wagons starting tomorrow, 8 wagons are going to start in 10 minutes, and 8 wagons are ending in 10 minutes too. Only 8 wagons left to be added tomorrow, the end of the train is close.
  • 20th: Last 8 wagons added to the tail, the train is complete. 8 wagons starting in 20 minutes, and 8 wagons ending in 20 minutes too. The last wagons will end on Saturday noon UTC, so there's still plenty to enter.
  • 21st: The last 8 wagons started, 8 ended. Sorry I sent the prizes a bit later today, I have sleeping problems. 2 days left to enter the last ones!
  • 22nd: 8 wagons ended and keys sent. Still in time, 1 day left to enter the last 8 wagons!
  • 22nd (bis): I had to delete a wagon, which caused the train to be broken until I realized (and thanks for the comments about it too). Fixed, I think.
  • 23rd: Tent the keys for the last 8 wagons, event ended.

Just to let you know, if you'd rather not wait and make the train chunk-by-chunk, you can raise a ticket and the mods will happily give you more giveaway slots so you can do the whole train in one go 👍

Thanks for the tip, but now that I've started this way, I'm going to end it the same way. Maybe for 2022 start of year train I'll need +100 slots, time will say.

Thanks for the train! Let me just mention that the latest carts seem to be public instead of "Invite only" -- not sure if this was intentional or not.

(Chances are, you want to leave them as they are -- if you delete them, you lose the slots, and it seems you need the slots for your plans, right?)

Cheers!

Explained in the post, that many people seem to think it's too long to read.

"winning and not thanking afterwards in the giveaway will mean you'll be blacklisted without mercy" - Honestly cannot believe some people do this... Kindness doesn't take a lot of effort... A lot of interesting games in the mix! Thanks for your generosity <3

95% of my blacklist comes from that. About half of the winners for now haven't thanked. I don't need anyone to kiss my ass, just a simple "thanks for the game" and I'm happy. Once I blacklisted someone and as retaliation he unmarked the game as received, even when he already redeemed the key. People...

(Not that I'm innocent either, I've done worse things...)
