Week 2 - Role-play week

(posting this one a bit early, I'll be busy most of Sunday so I won't be able to post it early in the morning)

This week, I'll be giving away some fun RPG games, all which are through Steam. So how do you get a chance to win these awesome games? Read below!

  • Magicka - Gift Link
  • Final Fantasy VII - Gift through Steam (I will send it to your e-mail)
  • Knights of Pen and Paper - Steam Key
  • Anodyne - Steam Key

This week, instead of one person getting games, four people will have a chance. Unless we don't get enough contestants, if only two-three people are participating, then I'll decide how to split the prizes after the weeks over.

Rules

Each week, the rules will be different. And you'll have to do different things to be entered into the drawing. This weeks rules:
  • Can have any number of posts, so if you're new, don't be shy!
  • You can get up to 7 entries yet again, however some effort is required.
  • Sunday/Monday - Post your favorite Holiday song(s) (Post once each day to get two entries
  • Tuesday/Wednesday - Share your favorite Holiday treat(s) (Same as above)
  • Thursday - What's your favorite part about the Holiday season?
  • Friday - What are you doing for the Holidays?
  • Saturday - Favorite Holiday Memory

The way the drawings will work for this one is, first person picked gets first pick at a game.
Second person gets second pick and so on and so fourth. Each winner will be PM'd requesting which game they'd like.

Disclaimer

This weeks contest is still complete chance. The winner will be randomly selected. Every week will be different and some weeks will have bigger prizes, some weeks will have multiple winners. I also meant to start this giveaway on December 1st, but I got preoccupied, so the giveaway will probably leak into January.

If you happen to already have these particular games, you can give the giftable links to anyone you want.

Drawings will take place December 21st, around 6-8 PM Mountain Time, once the topic is locked, there won't be anymore entries. There will be one final reply to this topic with the winner, whom I will PM with the prize. Every Sunday, there will be a new giveaway topic until the giveaway is over.

The first song... I hadn't heard before. It's definitely interesting. But the donkey mask.... I might have nightmares.

And I also love the second song. :D Good times.

my favorite is this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ_MGWio-vc

This was very cool. :) I know the song, but haven't heard this arrangement before. Definitely very cool.

As for my favorite Christmas song, I really like Greensleeves. :) Actually, a little while ago, I made an arrangement of it for cello and piano and played it with a friend. I just put it on YouTube if you want to see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvT4auUMeuQ.

It's a live recording and we had just put the song together that day, so it's not the greatest as far as balance and occasionally out of tune notes, but I think it's kind of fun. :)

Loving all the songs you guys are posting! And it's nice to see a bit more of the community joining in on this one. Holiday treat posts for Tuesday and Wednesday, drop in both times with a post and you'll get another entry each day. :3

Treats... hmm... I'm going to pick an odd one, but a staple at our holiday get-togethers:               

Stuffed Jalepenos

Basically you cut raw Jalepenos in half discarding the seeds, then wash the peppers really well.

Cook up some Sage sausage.

Mix the sausage with some cream cheese.

Stuff the peppers with said mix and bake in the over for about 15-20 min @ 350F or ((350-32)/1.8)C

Towards the end sprinkle on a little Parmesan cheese.

Extremely simple to make and extremely awesome to eat.   :)

Enjoy!

personalty my favorite is Chocolate Fudge. every year me and my mom team up to make some home made fudge for the season. it takes 2 of us because you have to bring sugar and butter to 250 Fernhight and then stir in the chocolate and marshmallow before it cools and crystallizes, you have to be fast.

My other favorite that we haven't done in a while is gingerbread houses. Me and my sister are actually planning on building one this weekend.

That sounds like so much fun! You should post a picture when you're finished.

I actually don't eat too many holiday treats, but around Christmas time, my family will always buy a whole artichoke, and then we cook it and eat it with butter. It's so delicious, if a little bit unusual.

My favorite holiday treat is fudge. My grandma makes her homemade fudge every year, I swear every bite I take disintegrates my teeth even more. It's the sweetest stuff you'll ever eat.

I like the idea of this one. I didn't want to post because I won on the last one... buuut I like this thread D:
Anywho, my favorite treat is probably the bunuelos my aunt makes. (if you've never heard of them look here.
We all used to help my grandma make them when we were kids and so it has become a sort of tradition now lol.

Thursday! Time to post again. I'll be participating for the remainder of the days but don't worry it won't count against anyones chances.

My favorite time about the holidays is the sweets. Like I said before, my grandma makes some awesome fudge. Aside from that, my friend Dianne makes a box of cookies for my family every year, she's got some mad baking skills, so I always look forward to that. Not to mention I love getting gifts for people, I love seeing that I made someone smile at the least.

My favorite time about the holidays is the drive over to my Grandparent's house, and the Christmas music on the radio during said drive.
I also love spending time with everyone at their house, too.

My favorite part about the holidays is the 'spirit' of it all. I like seeing strangers being genuinely kind to each other, with a heart-felt "Merry Christmas" to a person they may have otherwise not paid any attention to. I also like seeing people showing concern for others who may be less fortunate this year by donating time, money, food, presents, etc... so that nobody is "left out in the cold" come Christmas Day. That's it I guess; people being kind to each other.

Hrm, favorite holiday memory...

A lot of the old ones are gone (or locked away and inaccessible to me, dunno how memories work), but if I can pick one, it'd be watching all of those awesome stop motion Christmas movies as a kid. Ah, them's warm and fuzzy memories.

One of my favorite memories is kind of sad, but it turned out to be great.

I was either 4 or 5 when it happened. But my dad had to work Christmas, I can't recall what he was actually doing. Anyways, my mom wanted to go party with some of her friends, so she dropped me off at my grandmas house. Like every Christmas, we're supposed to all go to my Grandmas and open gifts and have dinner. We still do this (and honestly, I'm glad my mother isn't apart of it anymore). Regardless, my parents weren't with me for Christmas. My grandma was the only one there for me. As sad as I was, she managed to talk me into opening a christmas gift, in which was a Game Boy Color and a copy of Pokemon Blue. I was absolutely in love with the Pokemon anime, and me being only five, was oblivious to the fact that a game had existed. I adored that Game Boy for numerous years, even after they released new variations and models and whatnot. I had it up until I was 11-13, I lost it in one of our moves. That day I fell in love with Pokemon and realized no matter what happened, my grandma would be there.

@Gameus Sounds like your grandma is a wonderful person.  I know how sometimes families can be 'less than perfect' it's good to hear everything worked out so good that x-mas.

My favorite holiday memory is spending time decorating cookies with my married friends and their parents a couple of days before x-mas . Sounds kind of lame, but it was always so much fun to see who could make the most creative, frosted cookie. I think it's less about decorating cookies and more about spending time with people you really care about during the holidays.

Locking topic and gathering entries. I'll do one final post for the video of the winners and the winners will be PM'd asking which game they'd like. If, for whatever reason, winners don't respond within 48 hours, the next winner will get the next game pick.
