If you have an older Indie Gala Bundle for sale, I've created a section under each bundle to list how many you have and how much you are asking. Please feel free to update this post with that info, but do it within the spoiler tag and keep your offerings current. I have an example listed under Mobile Bundle 2. If you want to purchase a bundle from someone, just PM that user and work out the details.

Anyone hosting a group buy for the upcoming bundle with the 1C games? I'd be interest in a slot if you are. PM me or post here. I would offer to host, but traveling so I might not be around when it launches.

I'm a bit low on cash right now, so I'm pretty much relegated to being a gift buyer this time around unfortunately.

Happy Hour buys!

I bought in right now at $1 so I will be hosting a 4 pack when happy hour goes live.

Happy Hour:

1. Me
2. mombbsmj
3.
4.

PM if you are interested. I would give a price quote, but these things have a habit of jumping in price during happy hour. should be around 2 bucks though.

Huh, didn't see this thread until you mentioned it and I went to look for it. I'm planning to buy at least 20 copies if you'd like to join mine, should be cheaper since they give price breaks the more gifts you buy. As of this posting it's ~1.13 per copy but it will most definitely go up.

Well, I can't purchase it until the happy hour comes online. I'm not going to pre-reserve slots because I have limited availability tomorrow if that's when it drops, and have had a lot of bad luck with people backing out of slots they've promised to buy on other things in the past. I can guarantee that I will be buying at least one group of 20 when they put happy hour online though.

Wait so they give even more of a discount for the more you buy hence it would make more sense to just have one or two people coordinate these in bulk vs a bunch of different people?

God damn it, I feel like I need a doctoral degree just to figure out how the hell these happy hours worked. It seriously is one of the most convoluted systems with not well documented rules that I have come across in a long time.

Yes. Genocidal pointed that out. So my plan right now is that Genocidal host the first 20 Pack and once he's filled up I will host a 20 pack myself. Any leftovers for me I will just give out to friends and probably set a side 5 for the steam group. So that's the plan!

The "gift packs" are disabled during Happy Hour. You can't stack the two discounts. At least, that's how it's worked in the past.

Do the group buys get the beat the average games, too? If so I'd be down for a spot but since I don't use Pay Pal I'd have to give Amazon Credit or a $2.50ish game on Steam (possibly Orcs Must Die 1 since it's the weekend deal but your choice). PM me if interested.

Yes they do. The free gift copies basically mirror the original copy you are buying at the time of the happy hour so if you beat the average then all the gift copies will get those bonuses and if you don't then they won't.

Generally speaking people who do the group buys beat the average because when you divide up the per copy happy hour price the per bundle price is pretty low even with the average bonuses.

Thanks to Blade, I've wikified the thread. I'm thinking it might be a good idea for people hosting group buys for the current bundle to update the OP with how many spots they have open so all the info is in one spot and easy to find. It might even be worth having people post in the spoilerized older bundles if they have leftovers available. What does everyone think?

Bolded for emphasis. Please don't PM me asking for slots right now! If the 20 gift group buy was not a glitch, rest assured that there will be plenty of bundles for everyone who is interested. Even if it was a glitch I'm definitely in for at least one four pack group and can buy extras if people want me to.

Hopefully I'm almost done tweaking the OP after importing a lot of data from the main thread. Would it be good to add a spot listing who's hosting the current bundle?

I also had a crazy idea I wanted to get everyone's input on. It might be nice to have this thread be a resource for people trying to pick up older bundles. Just as an idea, I added a section to the spoilerized part of Indie Mobile 2 listing that I still have bundles available, how much and what payment method I'm looking for. If you all think it's a good idea, I'll add the section to all of the older bundles. If it's a crap idea, it's no problem to delete the couple lines.

I like this ideal and think it could be helpful to a lot of users.

I sent you a pm about the mobile 2 bundle.

OK. So I have 2 slots open in a gift pack now. Taking more so just PM if you are interested. Once I fill my max I will let you guys know, but for the moment I got slots open.

If I am late getting to your PMs its because I'm on vacation so only checking CAG morning and night. If you end up in another group buy, no hard feelings at all. I'm buying the cheapest possible group buys, so if the multiple gift discount stacks that's what I'll be doing.
