TTG Secret Santa 1.5: This Time, It's Summer!

posted by Ribs on - last edited - Viewed by 2.6K users
I promised last time to do this when the next sale occurred, and now it has, so fun fun fun! It was a tremendous success, everyone got games that were fun and (I'm sure) were fun for all.

If you don't know what Secret Santa is, it is a common holiday event between larger groups of people. Basically, a bunch of people sign up, and are assigned a random other person who also has signed up, and everyone buys eachother something without knowing who their gift will come from!

Rules Specific to This Secret Santa
Applicants must gift items using Steam.
Items should not be worth less then $3, or rougly £2.
Items purchased should not exceed $30, or £18, roughly, so we don't have anyone buying anyone else iPods and other people buying Laptop Covers.
You must send your gift by July 10th, 2011.

To register, please reply below saying you're in and send me a PM with the email address your Steam account is linked to, so your Santa can gift it to you. If you have titles in particular you would like, feel free to send a link to your wishlist. Registration does not close until July 5th, but once a sizable amount of people have joined I will start pairing people up.

Other Information
If you have any questions, please, contact me by PM or reply below!

Steam works in an odd way where if you buy a gift for someone, it sends exactly what you bought. For example, if an Australian gifts someone in the UK Left 4 Dead 2 then it's the censored version Australia gets instead of the UK one. This is just a disclaimer, but it potentially could make anyone in Australia want to hold off on buying titles like L4D2.

Applicants (So Far)
Wishlists are linked if available.
1. Ribs
2. jeeno0142

(Feel free to turn this into 'Discuss The Steam Sales' like it did last time, too)
Have Fun, and do sign up if you can!

  • Count me in! I love secret santas. I won't be able to send my gift over until at earliest the 8th July, but that's within the time period so I assume there's no problem with that.
  • I'm up for this, though will have to wait until I get some money which should be on the 6th and like jeeno I assume this won't be a problem.
  • I'm totally game. And I don't give lame gifts.
  • Uhh is telltale a main contributor to the sale this year?
    The main page is of Marty and Max.
    EDIT:Whoa there is a competition, earn tickets to get free stuff.
  • I'm surprised about the picture choice, too. Go TTG!

    And yet none of the challanges for today involve telltale.
    In fact I have none of the games today, but at least I have the group ticket. I should be able to get the TF2 hat at least:D
    EDIT:Oh I have Bit trip, but it isnt installed.
  • Everyone who's entered, please send me a PM with the email address your account is linked to, as that's the easy way to send a gift via Steam. I've bolded the post above to highlight this, as it was a problem last time too and some people had late entries because of it. In addition, if you'd like to assemble a wishlist, please do so, so the person buying you something doesn't assume you'd like Dinner Date (yes that is a real game on steam) and buy it for you.
  • FYI Ribs, I WONT be doing the sale this time from the looks of it so if you could remove me there...
  • I can never remember the email I use for steam, either my real address- sbwin{at} or my spam email little_kero_girl{at}

    It's one of those two. Steam name is division-ten and my list is ordered by things I'd like.
  • Count me on.
    To my Secret Santa: I made my Steam wishlist bigger just to enter the Steam contest. Actually, I don't want neither Call of Juarez, nor Hector (wich I'll buy from Telltale's store when they launch the three episode bundle), nor The Next Big Thing (which I'll buy in Spanish on my usual retail store)
