We've all been there. Its the end of the month and your wallet is empty.

No chance of buying any game now.... So what to do?

Join "End of the month giveaways"

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/EotMG

The members of this group have to create a giveaway in the first week of each month. These giveaways must be set to end on 12 p.m. (whatever your local time is) on the last day of the month. This way we will all still get new games, and be flat broke at the same time.

Rules:

  • First of all, always follow the steamgifts rules.
  • Members (both new and old) have time untill the 7th of each month to make a giveaway. If your giveaway is not there, you will have me haunting you untill you can explain why. No valid explanation means you will have to leave the group. (because we are starting on the 3rd I'll give all members until the 10th this month)
  • All giveaways must end on the last day of the current month.
  • Giveaways featuring separated bundle games (games with an star on SG) will not count for your monthly giveaway. But are appreciated and allowed.
  • DLC giveaways will not count for your monthly giveaway. But are appreciated and allowed.
  • At the end of each month the giveaways will be checked by me. If anyone has removed/deleted his or her giveaway they will be kicked from the group. If these users have won any games I will also notify the involved members to reroll.

Current member limit: 50

I will start the group off with first come, first serve invitations. This is because I want to give everyone a fair chance to join.

Any changes to the rules or member limit will be done democratic through the group discussion page.

EDIT: Second round of invites:

All people recieving an invite starting today will have 3 days to make their giveaway for januari. (or have a good reason why it would take longer)

How does this relate to my empty wallet again?

you create the giveaway in the beginning of the month when you still have money. You win the games at the end of the month whan you are trying to get by until your next paycheck.

Hi. I'm interesting to join. This can be my first time in private group. It looks fun ;). I have some games in inv so I can make a giveaway ;). For more info ask me on steam.

I'm from Poland ;/. I know that lots of people thinks that pols are mo$#@%#$@#$rs. And it's true ;( coz of our young population ;/ they want to fight with everyone coz they are anonymous...

So what do you want me to do about it?

MorphineBear

The group confused me also...

"whats that? No money to buy games? Join my group for people with no money for games(Note: Must buy 1 game a month for group)*

At least thats what I got from it, not sure this group makes much sense to me...

Indeed. Ms. Secretary!

the point is that you get a game (at least) when your wallet is empty because of paying stuff during the month, that's it, at the end of the month! everyone makes a giveaway at the beginning, when everyone has at least something more than.. at the end.

Just seems like a convoluted way of trading almost to me, I mean I guess if someone can't budget there funds correctly its an alright idea.

Good luck with it anyways.

I have $0.15 so I obviously don't qualify

(also this is a flawed idea as not all of us work or are old enough to work and get a steady income)

It's not a group limited to people who work. Anyone can join. It's just that many working men and women here will know the feeling of an empty bank account at the end of the month. And what better way to cheer up then to win a game?

Irvineanca

But you have to spend money in the beginning of a month, not have a new game, create giveaway, hope you get one in return (there will be some people misusing it) and that it's a game they'd like, receive it. So you buy something now to get a game a few weeks from now, and take a risk that you get a game you don't like or don't get a game at all.

Other option: spend that money on a game for yourself, so you are sure you like it. Spend the rest of the month playing that game or games. No risks at all, except for not being able to get a game for a couple of weeks. But is that really a bad thing?

I understand the idea, but I just think it is flawed. Also, not all people get paid on the same date. In my country it is normal for morst people to get paid around the 25th of the month.
