In return members will get higher chances of winning games they want and creators will know their giveaways have a high chance of getting played. The group has more than 800 members and over 9000 historical giveaways.
More information and a FAQ is available via the Steam group. Current group giveaways can be found here on SteamGifts. Feel free to comment below if you have any questions!

I'd like to join through option 2 please
Processing requests has recently been delayed. If you still want to join, let us know.
Yes, please! :)
Welcome to the group! Curious to see which game you choose to give :-)
Hi!, would like to join through option 2.
Since some months i'v only entered GA that i'm sure i will play soon, and just found out about the group philosophy that aligns well with that.
Hello. I'd like to join under option 1.
option 2 looks like the easy way in but I can do that later. I'm requesting number 1. :)
But I'm a little confused as to the join requirements. Do I need to state a game first, then play, then request to join on the group page after I'm done? I see others doing this but also some using already played games.
If I can use recently won played games then.
A Hat in Time, won a month ago and just finished. 28hours. 100% of the timepieces. lots of screenshots.
Headlander, won 2 months ago. Finished fully. a few screenshots.
Both those games are very good BTW if someone reading this has those in his account unplayed.
I fully admit there a lot of great wins I have not played and my percent is not good. I do appreciate every one of them however. I also do giveaway as much as I win so I hope I'm not a lost cause. :) But I do need to play more. Perhaps this group can help motivate me. (hence option 1)
I will commit to playing won games from this group according to the group rules. And I hope to slowly increase my percent on the other wins. Looking back I see I have a long way to go.
If those count then I'll put the request in. If not then I'll pick a win, state it and start playing it after I finish my current game. Then what? Come back and point to that post once I'm done and request at that time?
Let me know how to proceed, thanks.
If you choose option 1 then pick up any game from the SG win(with achievements) that you haven't started yet.state the game here in the post.Then play and complete the game.Take some screenshots as proof and post it here once you have completed it.then you can send the request to join the group.The group admin/moderator will look it and will accept your invite to the group.hope this clears your confusion if not feel free to ask
Very well. Once I'm done my current game. I'll pick something, Post it here and then play it before posting again and requesting admission.
Hello) I would like to join via option 2
Well, maybe not the best game to track, but it's my wish 乁( ◔ ౪◔)ㄏ
But anyway, it's just beginning)
From a couple post up Here.. I've picked ... FootLOL: Epic Fail League
ignore the time played. That was ASF. Note it has no achievements earned before today.
I'll be back next week.
Welcome to the group! :-)
hello. i am new and i go Lv.4 .i hope to accept me in your group. I will play the games that i will won :) ! Thx anyway , nice group
Please read the OP for details on how to join the group.
Hi. My backlog is daunting though I am working on it, but I would like to be able to include this group in multigroup GAs, (and also some exclusives, ofc) but not enter any for the foreseeable future. Just want to see more of my GAs find a home where they will be loved :) Please let me know if this is feasible and what I need to do.
Requested to join on group page. I have games waiting to get gived away. Happy to discuss which ones would be best in chat at your convenience.
Welcome to the group! :-)
Feel free to give any game you would like to see played (ideally that you played yourself and enjoyed), just make sure it wasn't one that was given away for free.
Hello! I'd like to join via Option 1. I'll be playing Fault - Milestone One, which I've just won. :)
Just finished the game! Request sent.
Oh, yay! I was beginning to think new members weren't being accepted. Thanks for letting me participate. :)
Aww I wish I had saved my current giveaways for Option 2!
Is it ok to pick a game for Option 1 that you have only just started to play? Because if so, I'd like to choose Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, as I've found that the easiest to play so far from what I've won (I have a chronic illness with really bad fatigue which makes some games really hard to play, I have better and worse days/hours so some games I have to wait and come back to at a later date but other games I can play more often).
If not, I will have to pick Rogue'n Roll since that is the only win I have not yet begun to play (it was a giveaway of 3000 copies so I thought that one was ok to enter even though I wasn't desperate to play it!) and I will give that one a good go.
Let me know if you accept me and if so which game I should play. Thanks for the opportunity!
Rogue'n Roll would be fine. Good luck! :-)
Rogue'n Roll it is :)
I avoided playing either just in case, I will install it now. Thanks!
Hi, I'm not sure if the 1 month rule also applies to joining under Option 1 but I thought I'd leave a message now it has been 4 weeks. I've given Rogue'n'Roll a good go and I'm not sure how many more achievements I can get in it, maybe a few more so I will continue to play (it doesn't look like I'm good enough to ever beat the game though :P). I saw earlier in the thread that you need to have half the average playtime, I don't know how to check this so hopefully my playtime is enough and I've left a couple of screenshots.
Also, I have a game to give away (Dungeon of the Endless) so if I don't meet the requirements for Option 1 maybe I can join under Option 2?
Oh and I'm an idiot, I already requested to join when I left the first message. :/
Hi-- if you don't mind me asking, what is your avatar from? :3
It's Saria from Legend of Zelda Ocarina of TIme :)
I found the actual picture on google images.
Thanks for the reply. I've never played any of the Zelda games.
I love them but there are lots I haven't played because I don't have the relevant console, especially the newer ones. You can emulate some of the older ones though if you want to try them out. :)
Hi, I don't want to bug you but I cancelled my request to join and re-requested in case that helps (because of my previous error). Am I able to join now? I just really want some of my giveaways to go to people who appreciate them since some of my past ones haven't. Thanks
Request submitted. See Here..... and Here.
No one online so I can't do the last two. It started off slow but it was fun.
So I wanted to join by option 1 but had some doubts as of I could actually join:
I neither of those will count then I might go for Option 2
Thanks for your time and the opportunity
for the games that are idled and no achievements had been achieved you can start playing that.just post the name of the game and the no of hours idled and once you finished it you can post it here and sent the request to join.
So I'm playing Grim Fandango Remastered previous idle time of 3 hours
Happy to help :)
Finished playing the game and request sent :)
Now you wait for the moderator to check and accept your request
Will do, thanks
Sorry to bother, it's been a week and still nothing.Do I not qualify for some reason? Just checking
The entry into the group is done by reforced and I think he is busy.he has not used steam for more than 15 days.he will come back at you.so don't worry.it may take some time
I see, thanks
Hi, i would like to join via option 2... my 1st giveaway would be grim fandango remastered, its one of my favourites and i would like to give it to someone who appreciates it or atleast gives it a serious try. Same goes for some other good games i hold back giving away... i also mostly just join wishlist giveaways on this site, if i have a higher chance on getting games i actually want to play... that sounds pretty sweet... and giving games to players who might appreciate them more... good stuff. SteamID= rough_tea
Are you sure you sent to a request to join via Steam? I can't find it...
Changed my mind for now... thx anyways
I would like to join via option 1. I choose "Dead Rising 2". I have yet only idled it for 4.6 hours, no achievements yet.
If you're still interested to join, Dead Rising 2 would be fine. However, you need a few more achievements to meet group criteria. See the FAQ.
Hi, I'm still interested, but I'm in the process of moving to a different town and didn't have the time in the last few month and probably also not in the next 2 month to play a lot. I will probably post again when I do have more time.
Alright, messed up my first comment.. Here we go again:
I pick option 1, game Planetary Annihilation. won 2 years ago (I know, shame on me!). I've idled it for 9 hours, NO achievements during that time. Proof here.
It's kinda funny; I wouldn't even had won this game if it wasn't for a reroll LOL!
I'll post again when I finish it, ofc. Oh, do I post a new comment or just edit this one?
Edit: hey anyone alive here? :P
Anyhow, I've finished the campaing mode, Galactic War and got a few achievements, rest of those seem to be just as broken as the game. Just now, right before posting this, it hard-crashed my pc! no warning no nothing. Much Bugs such disaster XD I'm done, I'm so done!
Thank you for this thread, now there's one less "game" in my backlog.
HLTB playtime was spot-on!. Didn't really took alot of screenshots, one of a weird bug when it messed up my alias, naming it "steam" and a bunch of random numbers. Restarted it and it was ok back to normal, MetaleroEd. There's no end-credits anyways, no "the end" or something classic like that, it just shows you a detail for the last sweep through the galaxy, with the unlocks and discarted data and that's it. It's ahh..silly..
EDIT2: 04-03-18 19hs GMT-3. Decided to add yet another game I haven't played. Fahrenheit / Indigo Prophecy Remastered.
Note the played time it's the idling (automated) since devs recently added cards to the game.
Edit3: 07-03-18 17:15 GMT-3. Screenshots link added.
Edit 4: 13-04-18 Ittle Dew (1) (and Ryse Son of Rome before that). What an amazing puzzle designs, I almost go crazy solving them. Best thing is that when you lose you never feel it's the game/designer's fault; it's just you, you need to up your game!
A belated Welcome to the group! :-)
Thank you! glad to be able to be around :)
Hi. I'd want to join by playing Roll'd.
Roll'd will do fine. Good luck!
Hi. Updated original comment. Thanks & happy weekend! :D
Hi, I requested to join the group before (Comment), and a guy told me to play one of my won games, I played No Time to Explain Remastered (Achievements) and I think I qualify to join the group.
I won van helsing a couple of days ago and played for till story end. Was gonna comment here but couldnt find your post. So posting now. Wanna join as a player. :)
From this comment thread: Hi, so sorry about the delay, but yeah, I'll like to request (again) to join. Option 1 would be me trying to play Tomb Raider, (which I have 4 hours on idle), and also Option 2 for some unbundles that I probably won't play but would like others to try out. I tried to request to join again for that nier gib but missed it but wanna try to join again in case another crazy AAA game appears so I may get the shot at it. Thanks, gon start playing Tomb Raider noww
Update; I finished Tomb Raider!!:) (would like to join da groupp)
Hey, can I join? I would like to enter by the first option. I normally always play the games I won, the newest I'm playing is Holy Potatoes! We're in Space!? that I simply love. Thank you :)

Woah, thanks :D
Update: Second game completed! Here.
Consider me interested.
I can give a copy of STRAFE: Millennium Edition straight after joining.
Processing requests has been delayed in the last month or two. If you still want to join, let us know.
Yes, I still want to join but it seems your checking tool is broken at the moment so I'll pass until it's fixed.
It took a while, but the group tool is fixed. Welcome to the group! I hope you still have that copy of STRAFE ;-)
I do. Will create the GA later today. Thanks for the invite.
This sounds interesting! I've only won 1 game so far, so I'll sign up under Option 2.
