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

posted by Ribs on - last edited - Viewed by 1.9K 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.

Rules
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.

Registration
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!

Note
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.

    Is there anyone else who hasn't received their gift yet?
    I will un-stick this thread in 2 days.
    I as well. But there's still four days, so I don't mind. :)

    Me neither.
    As long as my gift came before the 13th (my birthday), I'll be OK.

    wait, there should have been somethin else. please check in once and a while.

    Nothing there this minute, but perhaps it will push through the ether while I'm at work.

    (Looks out of window. Torrential rain).

    Assuming I go to work.....

    Assuming your person didn't lie in the thread, it should be there actually.
  • I'm having problems with both Steam and my e-mail account, maybe I've missed the message with my gift.

    If you go to Games > Manage Gifts and Guest Passes on the Steam drop-down menu, it should tell you what's happening with gifts and whether your friend has Redeemed the gift or not

    Just going to bump this.. probably worth using the "send via Steam" option over the email option, although you might need to get your recipient to Be Your Friend first.
  • I still need to send mine. It will happen either tonight or tomorrow at the latest.

    Edit: Tomorrow. Definitely tomorrow.

    Ah-ha! Directors Cut of Broken Sword!

    It seems the gift notifying mail has been lost, I haven't received it yet...
  • I have just sent my gift! Hopefully it'll go through O.K.
