December: Winter / 2018
Theme #1: Winter
For the game to qualify for this theme it needs to have a winter feel to it - Christmas, snow, ice, winter landscapes, winter sports,… You can find a list of eligible games here. Feel free to post more game suggestions as a reply to that post!
If you want to make choosing the games easier, check out Enhanced BLAEO - it will tell you which eligible games you already own.
Theme #2: 2018
This one is pretty self-explanatory. :) Games with a 2018 release date qualify for this theme - even if they’re remasters, ports, etc.
[The criteria is stricter when nominating games for the BLAEO game awards so keep that in mind if you find a game that fits the theme that you want to nominate for an award - certain games can be used for the monthly theme but NOT for the BLAEO game awards.]
To participate, reply to this post and tell us which game(s) that fit the monthly theme(s) you’re going to play.
Please use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!

Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.
I don’t have any unfinished games - I’ve beaten everything I’ve started.
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.
I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.
