    Last year someone set up a steam account where we all gave a random game and then they were doled out to each other. Was really good and people ended up with good games they'd never normally buy. Anyway, he seems to have vanished so I've taken it up myself to do it this year.

    Here's what you do

    Add

    Eurogamer_Secret_Santa

    Gift a game (can be anything but ideally not a game thats been in a recent humble bundle as most people will have that already and it might be hard to match up people with stuff they dont already have)

    I will use a random number generator to send out the game to another person in the secret Santa.

    If that person already owns the game, it will be thrown back into the hat and another game drawn.


    Lets see how much interest there is before I bother so state your interest here, closing date for sending gifts will be 23rd December and I will draw them/dish them out on the 24th!

    I wont be able to accept links to Humble Bundle gifts as it's a load of pissing about.

    Oh I remember that, it was good fun. An advent calender wasn't it? With a prize a day?
    I'm in! I'll add you tonight & send over a game.

    I've made a new steam account in the name of
    'Eurogamer_secret_santa'

    So please add that to your friends list

    Might be best to wait until the christmas Steam sale kicks in but of course, thats entirely up you

    Actually I'll do this. I had a game to exchange, but might just get festive with it instead.

    Neilka has sent EIGHT games! Only one of which has ever been in a Humble Bundle, and all of which are excellent/very good games!

    Salaman good game received, thanks mate

    Note - Please try not to gift games that have appeared in recent humble bundles as I might have trouble finding them a new home given that most people with any sense buy most, if not all the humble bundles. ho ho ho.

    As far as the 8 games go, I will use them for if there is any double ups or ones everyone already has, and if not, dish them out using a RNG so some people will get a second game thanks to Neilka

    Explain for someone who's never gifted of steam before - are you gifting games from your existing library, or games you've bought or never redeemed, or what?

    You go to you INVENTORY and any games that you can gift are there.
    I've taken to buying games in the steam sale as a gift. When I finally get around to playing it, I install it for myself. If It's still knocking about in my inventory umpteen months later, I can gift it to someone for whatever occasion is fitting.

    @brokenkey or if you want to buy a game to include you can buy it as normal but tick the 'buy as gift' option at the checkout

    I'm in. Got a fairly decent offering too I think.

    It wasn't from a humble bundle anyway....
