Game of the Month: January 2022

Happy New Year everyone! Lets start this year off on the right foot by beating January's Games of the Month! December's raffle winners are forthcoming; stay tuned to announcements!

There are big changes to the rewards for Game of the Month so if you missed the live podcast last night, listen up: As usual, completing any of this month's winners nets you the`@GOTM Champio` role and therefore access to the exclusive #champions_lounge, enabling you to hang out with the other champs and vote on next month's GotM theme. As for the new stuff...

Completing any GotM game will net you 1 point. These points roll over from month to month and will be tracked by me in a leaderboard Google Sheet. You may choose to spend a single point on the continuing monthly raffle, OR choose to save them up to guarantee a prize instead of playing the luck angle. It'll be up to you to decide when and where to spend your points. More prizes will be added in the future, so stay tuned to GotM!

Monthly Raffle Prizes (3):

  • Grand Prize: Retro Handhelds T-Shirt
  • 2 Runners Up: Retro Handhelds Sticker

Point Prizes:

  • 3 Points: Retro Handhelds Sticker
  • 15 Points: Retro Handhelds T-Shirt
  • 30 Points: Retro Handhelds Messenger Bag

To gain your points and @GOTM Champion role, you must do the following: Complete the game in question, then take a picture of the end screen/credits with a handwritten time stamp somewhere in the frame of the photo. The time stamp must include your username and date, and this all gets posted in #gotm_discussion with a ping to @Rapid99 (Cyberphile) If you have any questions about the process, ping them, dm them, post it in #gotm_discussion, etc. We'll get to you!

You have until the end of the month to post your pics, Friday, January 31st at 11:59pm EST.

Make sure you tune into each game's specific thread in #gotm_discussion, for discussion, tips and tricks! I'll be pinning some important stuff concerning each game in there, so come on by and chat! If there were any games that didn't quite snake out a win in GotM but you still want to play them and chat about them, GotM Runner Up is the thread you want. Do note that completing any runner up game will not net you any points or make you eligible for the #champions_lounge.

See you all in #gotm_discussion! Let's start working towards that sick RH Messenger Bag!
