Wuuppeee!!! 2017 Christmas! Gifting & being gifted time has finally arrived again ! Let the paaarty beegiiiin!!!
On this magical occasion we shall continue our proud tradition, come wind or snow (we hope)! We’ve started building a list for 2017 of people who are interested in joining. On the 24th 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 I’m not mentioning Playstation & Xbox although a lot of us are gaming there simply because a) I don’t know of an easy way to gift there b) it risks raising the costs prohibitively. If however that is okay for you, that’s of course perfectly fine also, though Steam is still a likelier focal point.
Also if you just want to research what people might like, we have a steam group: steamcommunity.com/groups/artsygamer and from it you can add friends and see their wishlists, 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 Get ready to gift and receive! A meeeery Christmas is on the horizon !
