Long story short, a long time ago, most of the moderators chipped in and created a sort of slush fund that we intended to use to buy games and give them away (somehow) to Giant Bomb users. I sat on this pile of money until last year when I started stocking up on Steam games to give away. This is the (third or fourth?) giveaway, this time of Tales of Monkey Island: Complete Pack, compatible with PC and Mac, currently selling for $23.44 on Steam! Here are the rules:

1. Entries will be accepted until 11:30pm Pacific on the evening of Wednesday, July 7th.

2. Please don't enter if you have played the series before, own a copy of it already, or just aren't sincerely stoked about playing Monkey Island. Give people who really want to play it a better chance of winning.

3. In previous giveaways, it was subscribers only. This time, we're opening it up a bit. You must meet at least one of the following criteria to enter before this post goes up, and yes I will check!:

a. Be a monthly or annual Whiskey Media subscriber -or-

b. Have a minimum of 500 forum posts -or-

c. Have at least 5,000 wiki points on Giant Bomb -or-

d. Have blogged at least 50 separate times -or- 

e. Registered your account on or before July 21st, 2008. 

That's it. The intent behind these rules is that we want these games we're giving away to people who are actually involved in the site in some way. Please state that you wish to enter when you reply to this thread, or if you want to reply but don't want to enter, say that as well. When the entry period expires, I will put all eligible users into a random number generator and have it pick one winner.


Good luck!

@Kowbrainz: I can't take so many at a time, I'll break! Be gentle with me!

In all seriousness, think it's fantastic that the GiantBomb Crew are doing this. I personally already own the complete pack, so I'm not signing up. I merely wanted to show my appreciation, you guys are the best.
