Hello and welcome to the madness!
The challenge is simple: Play and beat any 6 games, starting today, that have been featured in any given Humble Monthly/Choice bundle in one month.

The prize: God of War

Game length does not matter and I'm not looking for 100% achievement runs. So long as you play and beat 6 games, I'm happy. You can go easy mode and play a bunch of 1h games or go crazy and play 6 +30h games. So long as they were in a monthly at a given point, it is all good.

Just post a comment with either screenshots/ achievements showing that you fulfilled the criteria and I'll add on Steam and give you the link. Feel free to share your thoughts on the games you've played, but it is not required.

FAQ:

Why you doing this?

I hate money. That and I realized I've been subbed to the monthly for over six years (yes it has been that long, I checked) and it occurred to me that I've barely touched the games I've gotten from it, let alone played them. Figured the same would be true for a few others, so I figured this is a good way to change that. A sensible person would probably unsub in this situation, but please refer to the beginning as to why that will not happen.

I've played the first X minutes of a game, can I pick it for the event?

No. You cannot have any play time or achievements prior to the start of the event. The only exception is idle time from farming Steam cards.

Can I play a MP only game?

No. It needs to have an "end" in order for me to count it as beaten, so it needs to have a campaign/story mode.

If a game was sold as a non-Steam copy in a bundle (origin/uplay/drm-free/etc), can I pick it as a choice if I own a Steam copy?

No. The reason being that those who own a Steam copy would have an extra option that would not be available to everyone who bought the same bundle. If the game was originally sold as a non-Steam copy, but Humble later provided steam keys to everyone who bought the bundle, then the game would be allowed.

Why six games?

The first few monthlies had 6/7 games in them so I went with that.

How long are you going to do this?

Until my credit card statements gives me nightmares.

This event "ends" on February 1st when the next HB Choice releases, though the giveaway itself will end the next day. If you manage to finish game number six in between that time, feel free to post, but know that I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to give you the link in time.

Good luck, have fun and stay safe.
Thanks for reading, and may you vanquish all your enemies.

Thanks for clarification, I asked because of the post name monthly in a month so figured you'd get the whole month!

The name implies you get a whole month, and you do: From Humble Monthly to Humble Monthly. 😉

HB just counts a little differently:

Humble reveals a new set of games on the first Tuesday of every month at 10 am PT.

It should be noted that Simulacra 1 & 2 came together in the Monthly, so I think both may be needed to count as 1?

But I might be wrong, since I they were 2 separate keys, just 1 choice.

I think its ok since both of them are different game and I already finish playing simulacra. I could change it though if its not accepted afterwards xD

They're counted as two separate games. While they came as a pair, they are two separate games and they were given as two separate keys.

Source: my entry last month had me completing both and they were classified as two separate games.

That's nice, I always assumed they were one since the choice was Simulacra 1 + 2, but was never really sure, I'll need to remember that. :)
