Merry Snowballs free on Steam through January. Requires VR, but you can grab it now and have it just in case you ever get it if you already don't.

Correction: The next three free games will be Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, and Pandemic. All board game conversions to video game format.

Pandemic apparently got removed between last week and now as only Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride are free. I've had Ticket to Ride for years. It's pretty fun.

Kingdom Come Deliverance (!) and Aztez next week.

From what I'm reading, Pandemic was delayed due to current events making the name a little less than palatable. ;)

Carcassonne on Epic's Store appears to be the same version as what is on Steam. Steam calls it both Carcassonne - Tiles & Tactics and Carcassonne: The Official Board Game. Carcassonne - Tiles & Tactics is already in the database. But someone has also added Carcassonne: The Official Board Game. I think we now have a duplicate of the same game where it should be aliased. Doesn't help that Steam calls it two different names on the store page.

I've gone ahead and renamed the Tiles & Tactics entry to Carcassonne (2017) with aliases of Carcassonne - Tiles & Tactics and Carcassonne: The Official Board Game.

However, we probably need to merge Carcassonne: The Official Board game entry into the 2017 entry.

Origin is giving away The Sims 4. Not sure for how long. The catch (beyond having to have an Origin account and downloading the launcher of course) is that you have to add it to your Wishlist first then buy it from the Wishlist and it should show up as free at checkout. https://www.origin.com/store/the-sims/the-sims-4

Weirdly enough, it just showed up in my library as soon as I opened up the Origin client. I never had to add anything manually.

edit: Shows how often I use Origin. I guess it was given away already earlier in 2019 because I had it from back in May. Nevermind!

It was given away once previously.

Also forgot to mention on the previous message that it's supposed to work in the US only, but some outside of the US are saying it worked for them.
