THIS TRAIN IS NOW OVER! We have reached a total of 1326 carts. although 1 ended a bit early and three were removed. You may want to look at the game LevTaylor did at 1000 and the last one that Khalaq did for us, I know a lot of people want those games
Game edit: GUACAMELEE! SUPER TURBO CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION is currently free on Humble. While it does expire after this giveaway chain, it is only a day or so after. If you do giveaway this game, make sure to clarify where it's from and the expiry date.
Second game edit:
These giveaways for icaio were deleted for reasons unknown. Cart owners who have carts next to those, please put the one above each number on your next or one below each number as your previous. (569-571, 571-569.) I don't feel like asking all 1000+ carts to renumber because of this, but if you want to fill up these slots you could. Just comment not only on the number before and after but also here.
So, I decided to look at the stats of giveaways this year only to find out just like last year, this has been an all time low since 2015! In fact, February has been the lowest since the February of 2015. So, I've decided to try and do a community train even though I have near no idea how to. Since I honestly don't have much to say, let's put some rules! These will be the same value as before, with a slight quirk. I've removed against my better judgement the rule of game value, so you can put a game of any value. This is mainly so people don't need to derail their cars. All other rules are the same. The previous ones were made by Xarlor with 577 carts reached, usercar007 with 421 carts reached including 4 bonus and FiddlerOnTheWeb who reached a whopping 4500 carts.
Must end May 21st 2019 EST at any time (I will accept a few hours difference as per time zones)
No region restrictions
Set to "Invite Only"
Set Contributor Level no higher than 3
Post URL in the comments of the last cart in the train.
If there is already a link for another cart in the comments of the last cart, wait until a new cart is added.
Number your cart in the description.
You can do games that aren't released if you want.
I can't really stop people from making Profile Feature Limited games (As icaio and maruten helpfully reminded me exist), but if you notice a game is of that variety, please tell the creator posthaste. And if you can enter a game even if you own it, don't.
The train stops accepting carts around May 21st 2019 EST. I will leave a giveaway at what I'll declare as the last station. If you add carts before I declare one as the last, that's fine. But afterwards will not be counted as part of the train.
Check your GA comments regularly until you get a link for the next cart. That way, you can add the link to your NEXT and thus continue the train. I'll start off with This.
Please comment down below if I missed anything, or failed anything hardcore.
Edit 1: Read 9000 one as >9000, I can't edit it ;-;
Edit 2: Passed community train 2!
Edit 3: Passed community train 1!
Edit 4: LevTaylor says he'll throw in a game from the top 10 wishlisted on SG if we reach 1000 by May 18th so I guess there's that
Edit 5: We passed 1000!

How much do you think we'll get?
Been a while...
I'm always amazed when these trains are over 1000 GAs long. Thanks for starting it and thanks to everyone who contributed :)
one more bump, why not? :D
Would love to add to this but I'm currently away from home and will be for six more months so it's very difficult to make giveaways and add them to the train. Kudos to all the participants!
Thanks everyone for adding some great stuff here! Bumf from here!
bump for massive train!
Bumpitty Bum! ~_^
Last day before the end, make it count :) !
I juts lost faith to humanity again.
I warned creator of giveaway numbers 1142 and 1143 that giveaway 1143 is not invite only and he banned me :D
Bump! Thank all of you guys who made these GAs!
Could someone please post a permalink (https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/4zvtSxh) to this comment in the comment section of GA #1071? Thanks a lot!
In lack of any other possibility to communicate:
To the user Raywen: I guess it's me, that you tried to annoy in cart 1071. I'm happy if we can settle this in a good matter. The reason why I blacklisted you is simple: For me it's a basic rule of decency, to say thanks, when I receive something. So therefore I expect a short thanks from winners of my GAs. You won a game from me, but didn't react in any way. That's ok for me, but it means, that I rather increase the chances of those, who say thanks by not letting those who don't participate in my GAs. Maybe it was just by mistake, that you didn't react? In that case, I have no problem to remove you from my blacklist.
Actuallly, i didn't said thanks, you are right. I've never thought it is a big thing for someone, I'm not a big giver, checked some of my last giveaways, and i guess winners have been saying thanks to me most of the time! And i never really paid attention to it!
So, i am completely guilty on that one. It's up to you to remove or keep me in blacklist, Anyway, thank you for letting me know the reason, i feel much better now. And sorry for not thanking =D
Thanks a lot for your answer! I'm very glad this actually worked 😄 (thanks a lot Aldowuj!).
The thing is, there are quite some people on this page who really just abuse the page to take, take, take (I just say: autojoin scripts) and less of those increase the chance slightly for the others, who really embrace this community. So I started this little personal filter rule, knowing of course that I occasionally lock out someone who just forgot or never thought about it.
This said, by answering me in such a polite and nice way (which I don't take for granted, after all, it's the internet here...), you make it very clear, that you're far from being a rude "taker", so I happily took you off my blacklist (and hence accept your sorry). Unfortunately it seems like there is a security feature on SG, that prevents you from taking part in GA's from people you removed from your blacklist for seven days (a good feature to prevent people entering GAs they blacklisted), so I guess it doesn't help if I link my GAs directly for you. But maybe it just doesn't work for me since I blacklisted you first. You may try here. If you can enter, just tell me and I post a link to my other wagons as well (so you don't have to search them).
And one final word: I've come to love the ESGST Add-on for steamgifts. One of it's features let's you access GAs you're blacklisted, so you can still go forward in a train even if you're blocked from some of the wagons. So you actually didn't annoy me at all (sorry 😉).
I'm unable to enter for another 2 days, but don't worry, i already spent most of my points xD. I'm just happy this whole situation resolved in a nice way. Wish you best of luck!
1150 Bump! ^_^
