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

posted by Ribs on - last edited - Viewed by 2K 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.

Applicants (So Far)
Wishlists are linked if available.

    I'm up for it!
    Need your steamail in a PM, and if you would like to make a wishlist please feel free to do so and link us to it.

    I'm giving a few people there targets earlier than others because there's still 3 days until the deadline to join but there's a chance some of the games the people want will be on sale during those three days. Everyone will have there's by evening GMT (midday EST, late morning PST) on the fifth, though. Don't have access to my spreadsheet with the people and their targets, which I regret as two titles high on my wishlist are on sale. Normally Steam redoes more popular items from the sale as a recap day, so my hopes are still high.

    the email address your Steam account is linked to,

    Er... how do we find that out?

    From Steam, I mean. It's jsut that I bought some stuff from Steam yesterday (not having seen this thread, dagnabbit) and despite promising to email me details of the order, they haven't. So I;m wondering if my account is attached on an old email address. But I can't work out how to find it in my profile. Can anybody help?:confused:

    Under the bar that says 'file, view, etc.' just click view and then settings.Email should be listed there.
  • I WANT IN.

    I have... like... no money. But I want in.

  • I've modified my wishlist, so now there's no need to ignore the bottom three

    Unfortunately, I lack the finances to support such a scheme, so that was my only contribution to this topic. Enjoy your games, y'all!
  • So yeah, get all your wishlists done and enter if you haven't because I'm sending the recipients and stuff as soon as I wake up tomorrow (at the latest, should be around 11am EST/4pm GMT) so you have the chance to gift something from today's sales if you want. I'm off to go draft the 'Here's your target!' letter now.
  • Just to be on the safe side, I will NOT play Hitman tonight. I usually get emotional over the atmosphere in games and it would be a shame to shoot my target instead of buying him/her a game.
