It's real! I saw it I did!
...and it's still there :-)
Busy day for people?
Not too keen are they?
Moved this part out of the OP:
I'll go first:
...and we're done :-)
Why don't I just delete. Because I'm an anal archivist of course :-)
I did a DLC giveaway and it only had one entry but still was gibaway?
i'm confused now
It's a giveaway, but you didn't get CV for it (toward reaching the next level). You need at least 5 entries for that.
feels stabbed in the heart
cries a little
I gave away a copy of Gauntlet a few weeks ago - had set it to invite-only level 10 for the recent high-level event. It didn't even cross my mind that there were so few level 10s that didn't already have the game. I got 3 entries and no credit, despite a post like this running and getting bumped for almost a week. To be clear, you need 5 entries to get credit if the GA isn't public. My lesson learned - don't make level 10 GAs invite-only. :)
It never crossed my mind that a public GA won't hit 5 entries, but I guess if the level is very high it can happen. I've never done a GA limited to anything more than level 4, so not an issue in my case.
that's a good and pricy game
still respect for getting to LVL 10 :p
Oh, I'm not level 10, just my GA was. I'm only 5 :)
Well, not any more. :P Now, respect for getting to Level 10!
(Sorry, couldn't help it.) 8)
You dont need 5 entries for public giveaway, one is enough
This is technically true, but for a public giveaway to not reach 5 entries you need to give Bad Rats and limit to Level 10. When a giveaway doesn't reach 5 entries it's practically never a public giveaway.
Or you can make regionlocked giveaway for 1 hour when everybody sleep in that region for lvl 7+ that everyone has like 5cent game or 100p game
I had one: Betrayer - level 8, 12 hours, no region -> 3 entries
Here u go :)
Limit reached thanks :)
Bumping, since I think this thread provides a better way to get to 5 users than copying other people's hard work and ruining their day.
i will put in my entry see what i did there ;p and add another Bump to this thread ;p
Awesome thread as always Yirg!
Just last week I had only 4 entries for my Level 5 Deponia giveaway, that was part of a private train.
You can't believe how worried I was I wouldn't get the 5th entry! And then in the last hour or so I got 2 more entries thankfully!
Whoah, that was close, I thought to myself!
So this is indeed a great idea for however needs that golden 5th! :D
I had one, but it ended while SG was down. :/
So let make this more interesting...
I currently have three giveaways linked from the forum that have less than 5 entries and only 1 day remaining:
Blackguards (3 entries)
Blackguards 2 (3 entries)
Puzzle Dimension (1 entry)
If you can find these links I won't post them here and you'll be able enjoy the exceptionally good odds. If not enough people can, I'll add the links here an hour or two before the giveaways end.
Edit: 5 entries reached in all GAs, so all is well :-)
Let me try my chance here for only 1 entry :)
Edit: Mission accomplished :)
If you own Guardians of Middle-earth, you can find an L4+ GA for Smaug's Treasure (DLC) here. If you don't, maybe search my other threads for a link to another L4+ GA of the base game ;-)
If you're interested in the games Lumino City (93% recommended) or It came from space, and ate our brains (91% recommended), I have two Level 0 Invite-only giveaways for these games, with 12 hours to go, and so far 0 entries. You just need to open your eyes to find them.
Hint: The links are not posted on this thread, but they are only 2 mouse clicks away :-)
Edit: Both giveaways have ended. 11 and 7 entries respectively, one lucky winner got both.
The first one is a great game indeed (although needs LUME to understand it fully)!
For 2 mouse clicks it sure is hidden!
I'm relatively new to GA... How can I recieve a certain Invite?
Thanks in advance for clearing things up for me?
The term invite-only giveaway is a bit misleading. It's more like unlisted giveaway. This means it does not appear in the giveaways list, but can be accessed if you're given a link to it (or if the link is posted somewhere and you find it, e.g. on the forums).
Thanks for your explanation. Yeah, "Invite-only" is misleading.
Also: Do you know if it is possible to write someone a message directly without responding to one of their posts? (I know this question is misplaced here. I hope you don't mind.)
If the're not Level 0, the easiest way is to reply to one of their old giveaways.
You! You are driving me crazy! I've made hell a lot of clicks, but all in vain... Gotta admit I just suck at puzzling. Or being dumb.
I'll give you one more hint: Searching for hidden links will be less effective than just reading the stuff I write. The problem is, I write a lot of crap all over this site...
Nah, I'm too tired already. Oh well, no chance for "it came from space..." than.
You're on my whitelist, so if you give up just let me know and I'll send you the link :-)
I'll try again when I get home. =:) Damn, It's hard to not post smiles russian style. Like this)))
I'm going to find this Lumino City!!!
Is it still possible to find Lumino City? I thought I'll do it after work but if you've hidden a link in random comment then everything is messed up since then :P
This comment was deleted 6 years ago.
You don't need to be invited, per se. The only way to enter/view an invite only giveaway is to use the URL address.
Thanks for your answer.
A giveaway with only 4 entries so far is waiting behind this puzzle. I know it's still early to resort to this thread but I didn't want to write a generic "bump" =P
Like TCGs or deckbuilding games? Enter here
I don't think that's the link you intended to post... :-)
fixed, thanks ( < _ < ;)
I have a train, but you must gain access to each cart through puzzles. Nobody ever looks at my thread, I hope this train will gain some Steam here. :P Guess people don't like working for their giveaways.
Some amazing unbundled games are hidden behind locked Golden Chests found in each cart (fairly difficult puzzles). Only 1 chest has been cracked by 1 person so far (so yes, there are 3 unbundled giveaways sitting with 0 entries, and 1 unbundled giveaway with 1 entry. and 2 of the giveaways have separate OST DLC giveaways for people who already own the base games). There are 4 locked chests in total (1 per chest starting cart 2), and unlocking all 4 = receiving access to Undertale giveaway. Also, cart 1 has an unlocked chest containing an unbundled game (freebie much???)
All bundled giveaways = Level 1+
All unbundled giveaways = Level 2+
Everything ends December 11th, 2015.
I have your thread bookmarked. I just keep putting off reading it since I still have 3 more weeks to do so. I'm sure those chests will get cracked a lot more as the deadline gets closer.
I hope so :P I don't mind not getting C.V, but C.V would be nice. Those puzzles will probably receive full hint sets next week to make them more doable.
I've looked at your thread, but I didn't understand what was going on. I think I voted for kitties, though.
Everything after the "UPDATE" is relevant in the main post.
I originally hid the entrance link, and getting to the puzzle itself was a challenge.
I spent an hour on Q3 and still have no clue. Maybe you'd be so kind as to offer a hint? I seriously can't get anywhere with it. Only one game comes to mind and I tried inputting it in 5-10 different formats and I'm fairly sure it's wrong by now. But I don't know what else it could be.
Part of a train. Currently only 2 entrants ... Ends Sat 21st 23:59
EDIT: Thanks :)
just bumping to increase visibility :)
what? no more bumps? here, have another one then :)
still nothing??? here, have another bump!!
Edit: Thank you guys!
Edit 2: I have a Level 0 giveaway for Trine 2: Complete Story that currently has only 4 entries, but you'll need solve the quiz in the Beer and Homebrewing thread to get there. There are a few other good giveaways (Skyrim, Just Cause collection) and many say the quiz is fun, so I think it's worth the effort. </shameless-plug>

Im black, thats racist
I'm not in your whitelist, but if it possible...
I would like to participate in this run if that`s ok .. ;) You have a wonderful day !
Im available if needed :P

What happened yesterday?
Guy decided to play a game while waiting and forgot to add anyone to whitelist until 10 minutes after the GA :P
Haha classic! :-D
Game Over :P
whitelist request with 6 minutes to go? :D
.... I had a lighting storm that knocked out the power in my whole district... I'm so sorry :/
I guess I'm out of CV as well. Sorry everyone, but know this: You're on my whitelist and I'll be making another GA for Jazzpunk and probably How to Survive as well.
Aw bugger, bad timing lightning :/

Something to make up for it!
Thanks for whitelisting!
You can even see the piece of my pre-alpha early-access game! =P
The background is actually transparent tho.
That's actually quite cool :D
I need a lot more practice =d
And then it will become better and I'll make more versions of him in motion,so images will change when u click on movement buttons...
Heyyyy if you need another entry ;)
I'm not on a whitelist. :(
You are on mine :-)
I don't know what you're talking about!
Whitelist :S maybe i should also create my own whitelist giveaway :)
Yeah, you're in man! :D
WL GAs are great, but make sure you have enough people to enter it, so you'd hit at least 5 entries.
wooohooo ty for WL :) and ty for the advice
Another option, have an empty & private Steam group included in all your whitelist (or group) giveaways, so that if you have this issue you can also add people by temporarily adding them to the empty group instead of to your whitelist.
ahh.... not an bad idea :) ty for advice
Come for the whitelist :3
You're like a runaway father who comes back with remorses after nine month to eventually raise his child :D
LOL didn't read it through XD.
Hello, can you still join your list? 😉
The comments might hold something Interesting...
It was a hidden carriage on a train but only a few people found it and 1 person has entered so far ..
I already own the game, but have a free bump :-)
I have two wildcards for How to Survive. If you're interested (and you pass the SGTools tests for this giveaway), let me know and I'll send you an invite for the group (Plan C).
I'm interest if the offer is still available :)
Invite sent. Don't forget to sync your account here after you join.
I would like to enter but Iit says that I have not activated an DLC, how do I fix that?
DLCs frequently result in false positives, so don't worry about it.
It would be great. I tried to win this game so many times, and still no luck -_-
Last and final invite sent :-)
Don't forget to sync your account here after you join.
thanks a lot,
still got a spot left?
Sorry, reached 5 entries. Better luck next time :-)
