    NEW ADVENT CALENDAR FOR 2014?! EG Mystery Gift Advent Calendar 2014

    What is this?
    An advent calendar, but with yummy video games instead of stale chocolate!

    Why should I join in?
    Maybe you missed out on this years Secret Santa and you do not want to be left out of the gift giving fun? Or maybe you joined the Secret Santa and you can not wait to Christmas day to open a gift?

    What do I need?
    A Steam account and a Steam transferable gift!

    How much should I spend on a gift?
    There is no minimum spend. If you are buying a game, please make sure to choose the "Purchase as a gift" option at the Steam store checkout. Feel free to use gifts you already have in your gift inventory.

    Am I guaranteed to get a gift in return?
    Yes.

    Can I contribute multiple gifts?
    Yes, but you'll only be guaranteed one gift in return.

    How will gifts be distributed?
    I will randomly select a person to receive a randomly selected gift everyday from Dec 1st to Dec 25th. If more than 24 people join in, I will occasionally give away multiple gifts a day.

    What will happen to excess gifts?
    They will be given away to randomly selected people on Boxing Day.

    How do I send my gift(s) to you?
    All gifts should be sent to my helper Mystery Gift Bot, you can find him here. Please add him as a friend and send him your gift.

    Can I trust you with my gift(s)?
    I've been a member of this community for over 9 years now and I hope that over that time I've gained enough trust and respect for everyone to trust me with their gifts.

    ---

    So that's the idea, I hope everyone is excited about it as I am! Who wants to join in?

    Hah, sounds like fun - count me in!

    Pity the Steam sale is pretty much over, though - we could have stocked up on random (but nicely priced) goodies. ;_;

    Also, how would you avoid every gift being a copy of Portal or Half-Life 2?

    I was thinking we could make it a rule to not accept any duplicate gifts, how does that sound? If we do that everyone would have to message me privately just to check that the gift they want to contribute hasn't already been given.

    When you're distributing, if you have everyone as your friend you'll know they have something when you try to forward it on.

    Hi again, I just wanted to inform everyone that I've decided to create a special Steam account to handle the receiving and giving of gifts. Could everyone please add my little chum Mystery Gift Bot as a friend and give your gifts to him from now on. :)

    If you've already given a gift to my personal account, then no need to worry, your gift has been passed on to Gift Bot for sorting and wrapping.

    And also, if you buy a game in a sale please make sure you have the required privileges to trade it on. If you don't, I'd be more than happy to buy the game on your behalf if you give me the money for it through paypal.

    Accepted. :)

    I usually forget to look at the friends list, so poke me (gremmi) whenever you're logged into the mystery bot account and I'll trade the gift over.
