I thought the grocery math resulted in a negative value making everyone eligible ?

I'm about 50/50 for quality as some of you take games and politics to seriously.

Question is on what topics do I like to troll and what topics do I actually care about?

Well that's for me to know you guys/gals to find out.

Here is an update. I finally managed to create the complete list with all the preferences of those participating. Every time I do this, I am thinking that I should write something for that, so you can enter your preferences digitally, but that never happens
As to the stats, there are actually only 81 persons participating. We have more keys than participants, so some keys will move to the next giveaway.

What will happen next?
I will work through the list top to bottom. The list is sorted by the following:
1. Number of posts in 2018 (high to low)
2. Number of total posts (high to low)
3. Registration date (oldest to newest)

I don't use the order of the games you listed.

The following is applicable:
  • If you have a high post count, you are very likely to win a key that is in your list of games
  • If you have a low post count and have a very restrictive list, you are unlikely to win a key as I cannot assign one anymore that fits your list
  • If you have a game in your lists that is not that popular (i.e. listed by others), you increase your chances to winning a key for that game
  • If you have not provided a list, you will always win a key. If you have provided a very large list, you probably also will win a key.
And if that doesn't sort things out. I'll just let Excel do something random and base my decision on that

I will send out the keys shortly. I do however not have the keys for the games provided by JDR13 and Henriquejr, who can either send the keys to me, so I can forward them, or send them directly to the winners.

Disclaimer: These keys are collected over time and experience shows that occasionally, for whatever reason, a key might not work. If that happens to you, let me know and I'll see what can be done (which ranges from nothing to a key for another game).

Thanks a lot! Now all I need is the gift of "Many-Rainy-Days" and this will be another great summer…inside…in front of my computer…where I like it the best! ;-)

I need to pay closer attention to these things. I can buy a bunch of keys for Myrthos to give away next time. I mostly replay old games nowadays since I haven't played anything new that really captures my interest. I spend more time in Survival than RPG now. Longest played game in the last year or so is 7 days to die and that's followed by The Long Dark. Congrats to the winners.

Thanks for running the give away and thanks all who donated keys. Hum. Makes me want to write a program to automate the selection but I suspect Myrthos already has one.
