Want to gift and receive a game for Christmas aand make friends in the process?  Just leave a comment in this thread and a secret Santa will be randomly assigned to you while you will be randomly assigned to a lucky gamer/gamerette

Wuuppeee!!! Christmas gifting time is here agaaaain! Let the paaarty beegiiiin!!!

What?

On this magical occasion we shall continue our proud tradition, come wind or snow (we hope)! I’m starting to build a list of people who are interested in joining. On the 25th I will use this list to randomly extract (out of something christmasy, like a hat or something) everybody’s Secret Artsy Santa. Then I will contact the people on the list with info to their respective giftee.

The nitty gritty

For specifics I would propose a low budget Steam game (thousands of games at <10€. It’s more about the fun and the gesture than anything else). I propose Steam ’cause it’s the most hassle free and it’s digital instant delivery makes it convenient, plus I know quite a couple of us have an account lying around somewhere. However Good Old Games (gog.com) also has fantastic games at fantastic prices (and amazing sales) and so do other networks, so we’ve got even more options. Plenty of choices & probably a ton of fab holiday deals on fantastic games are guaranteed :D

Also if you just want to research what people might like now we have a steam group: steamcommunity.com/groups/artsygamer  and from it you can add friends and see their wishlist, in case you’re temporarily out of ideas, plus friending them now is not just nice but also a good preparation for when the actual gifting will happen.

Why would I do it?

Well… for the huge joy of giving, of course! Imagine you get to browse through a ton of games, remembering the ones you liked most, and share one with somebody, spreading the joy, making the world a better place! As an incredible added bonus you will also get to have a cool surprise waiting for you to unwrap. Even if you’ve played the game before it will be super fun to get it, knowing that somebody else (and you get to wonder who) reaaaallly enjoyed that game and thought it was special enough to share. It probably meant a LOT in their life… it’s magical to share that!

I want in! How?

Well, just leave a comment, gimme a private message (top menu), email, or facebook or even contact form… the popular quickie favorite: you could just leave a comment here if the email you’re registered with is the one you’ll want to be receiving your surprise on. Name + email … and that’s all :D

    Sorry, it was my fault, didn’t realized how time passed. Still, weather somebody else joins or not this year, still great to have you guys onboard and looking forward to the gift sending and unpacking :D.
