If you don't really need money, I suggest another useful option. You can give money to other participants in the competition

This place is not a charity, we had somebody here regularly begging for money and putting guilt trips on members with his sob stories.  He is now banned for life.  A lot of people are struggling financially in this current climate, but it's not a competition to see who is struggling the most and give them money.  It's a fun coding competition to produce a cool little game for yourself and others to enjoy, with the bonus of earning some prize money and perhaps selling it for a small amount at itch.io or similar.

It seems the prize was smaller this time so the winners have generously decided to add it to the prize fund for the next competition, that's all.

Yes, I understand.
I have no goal of imposing guilt on anyone. It seems that I did not express the idea very correctly.

The C64 mini should go to the 1st place and if they have one / don't require one then 2nd > 3rd place etc. Or if no one grabs it off you then perhaps hold on to it for the next game comp?

Talking of prizes... STEVIEG has generously donated his winnings for the next game coding prize fund. The $$$ prize pot wasn't super duper for this comp so would iWasAdam and Xerra want their share sent via PayPal or donate it for the next game comp? ( I'll chuck in £500 for the next one )

Yeah, let's make it a bigger prize for the next one then. As Adam doesn't need the 64 Mini and has donated back his winnings, as  well as StevieG, I'll do the same and put mine back into the pot. The mini can stay in the prize pool as well in case anyone who wins next time is interested in having one. I should mention that it is still in its sealed cellophane box and in the plastic cover as it was a Xmas present a couple of years back and I had already bought one.
