Steam Secret Santa 2018

Recommended Posts

In! Well, in a mo. PM incoming. ;) 

 

One thing worth noting from last year - obviously wishlists are a good way of getting ideas for your giftee, but there were dodgy Steam moments where lists would be fine one day and show 0 games the next, or show up on the mobile app but not a browser window... so screengrabbing or manual listing/planning can help as well!

A present from me:

 

The first 25 people to take part in this will get a complimentary key for Shudder on Steam.

 

Happy (Shuddering) Christmas!

 

@JPR Can you let me know who I need to send one to, please.

 

I will do, thanks very much for that.

In obviously. It's the most wonderful time of the year! JPR first, family and friends second.

Can't wait to see what erupts from Santa's bulging sack this year.

It's been a while since I've done this. Is there a minimum / maximum spend?

50 quid minimum.

The actual answer is "whatever you feel comfortable with". The cost of items received varies quite significantly depending on the Santa, so don't feel bad if you can't afford to be wildly generous (and equally do be aware that you may not get back what you put in if you're planning on putting in a lot)!

As @Wiper said, there's no minimum or maximum. One thing I sometimes do is have a very loose "budget" in my head (if only so that I behave myself!) before the sales start and then adjust accordingly depending on the discounts. Although sometimes this results in happy dilemmas where I pick up the things I "plan" to get and still have spare funds for fun extras!

Nice idea! I'll match this, and chuck in 25 Steam keys* for Picrastination (my Picross game).

 

@JPR - I'll need recipients names too, please.

 

 

*PC only still, sadly.

That's very good of you, thanks, will let you know when I have the list.

Always a fabulous thread. I love reading the reactions afterwards. My temp teaching contract is up this month which leaves me struggling so can't take part unfortunately. Have a blast guys.

 

I will go through my bundle codes and put up my semi-regular duplicates for early pressies in the main thread though :)
