Playing Appreciated is a group for members that like to play games they win and for giveaway creators that like to see their games getting played. This sounds simple, yet requires committent and dedication from members by filtering out games they like to play from all group giveaways and when won playing those within one month. 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!

Yesterday I got gifted Xeodrifter by a friend so I'm going to embark on a quest to get some achievements in that....hopefully that should be fine.
Xeodrifter will do fine, enjoy :) Please reply to this comment and request a group invite here once you are done.
Membership approved! Welcome to the group :)
Awesome. Thank you.
Thank you. Group invite requested.
Hello can i ask you please:
This game "Street Of Rage" , don't update timeplay\achievements , will this then create problem about the PA group? if yes how i can remove it from the games i win?!?!
As far as I can see, the game has already been marked as played.
Therefore, there should be no further issues.
Also I think only Reforced can remove games from the tool.
As Adel91 said, it was already marked as played by the giveaway creator already so no need to worry about it.
As far as I know the playtime gets counted here instead of here and that is why it doesn't work properly.
I don't get it :(
APocketfulofStars just met SUSAN.
Ah, thanks :D
Bumping (going to start playing the games now, this is just a bookmark for now!)
I'd like to join too. I'd like to play some Marble Duel for joining the group, since my other wins either have no achivements (Shadowrun Returns, which is already played through, Luxor 3) or I started playing them already (Mafia III, DLC). Hope Marbel Duel fits the requirements.
Hi samwise84, Marble Duel will do just fine. Please reply to this comment and request a group invite here once you are done. I wish you the best of luck with it and let me know how it goes. I played the game and it gets so ridiculously down to RNG if you are gonna beat a level or not at the later levels that I have given up on it.
I see where you are comming from. Was just stuck on a level, repeated it 7 times with no luck to even so much as damage the opponent for more than 10 points. On the 8th try I beat the oppnent without him having even one go at me, earning me the God of War and Sneaky achivement in one game. With all the extra stuff (shield, increased hitpoint, healing, etc. ) there is a lot of strategy behind it, more than usually in a game like this, but all of that does not matter if you do get the wrong marbles.
Yea it is such a shame. With all the additional strategy elements one would hope that it would make the game less RNG not a lot more RNG. One quick tip I can give you that helped me a bit was to change your upgrades after each level to fit the color of the marbles that are gonna be in the level you will be playing next (if you are not doing that already). If you get super stuck after getting the "Aviator" achievement (that is where I gave up) snap a screenshot of the level progress and I will talk to Reforced about approving your request due to RNG nonsense and it being the only option of a game to play.
Will do so. Hopefully after tomorrow I will have a bit more time to play. Right now I'm on a buisness trip because of some training that I need for work -_-
There is no time limit so feel free to take you time :)
Ok I give up. After reaching the Aviator achievement it gets ridiculously RNG. For the few levels I was able to do after the achievment it took at least 5 to 15 tries for each level.
Here is a screenshot of my level progress:
If this is not enough then I will join under option 2.
I think you gave up on the same exact level as me :o
I think it is more than enough. Accepted, welcome to the group! :)
Thx. What a coincidence XD
I was starting to get aggressiv because I constantly lost due to bad luck. Usually games like that are relaxing to me -_-
I feel ya. I was playing it on a laptop with a touch pad and I wanted to throw it out of the window at that point :D
No violations yet this month. Hurry! :D
Option 1: I will play Unavowed The Banner Saga 3, which I won here 2 months ago.
After I finish Step 2, I guess?
Edit: edited with new game.
Hi Thexder, you are more than welcome to join, but please pick a game you haven't yet played. You already got an achievment in it from September 7th.
Hm, I had no more than 15 minutes on it, but, you are right, there is 1 achievement already. So, let us try another one:
Option 1: I will play The Banner Saga 3, which I won here about 2 months ago.
The Banner Saga 3 will do fine! Please reply to this comment once you are done with it :)
Hi, I would like to join with option 2 :)
Hi Lontaz, you're welcome to join by option 2, membership request approved.
Let's see what you'll give :)
Hello. I would like to join the group using option 2. Thanks in advance!
Hi Sysout912, you can join with option to 2. I have approved your membership request. Welcome to the group and looking forward to see what you give away :)
upsy, decline me, i accidetally sent a request, sorry
No problem, if you want to join let us know how. :)
Hi, I would like to rejoin :)
Finish all the game in my previous wins.
Kicked due to https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/y3HF0YU
Thanks you :)
Hey wulaha999, I have approved what I think was played good enough but there is a few games that I think you should put a little bit more effort into because we are not a demo group but a group where you join the games you actually want to play. You can see which ones are yet to be approved here.
Want to join this group, I'll sure play the games I win if I do so.
Hi eduuuh, you are welcome to join. Which option to join would you like to choose?
I am currently playing Day of Infamy, the only game that I won.
Since you already started playing the game on the 19th it that sadly does not count as a game you can join with. However you have 3 other options:
It is up to you, just let us know what you decide :)
I'll go with option 2 then. I can give away Devil and the Fairy.
That works! Join request accepted, welcome to the group :)
Thank you!!! Just created the giveaway ;)
hehe :v was introduced by my friend in this group and really like the idea of playing games :))
Can i join this group? Will play cat on a diet which i won from steamgifts
Here: 0/30 achievements :))) and will give another shot too :)))
update after 5h: https://gyazo.com/a0c482b68c0fd72559303f06eaffcb23
Hi logvip08, Cat on a Diet will do fine (note: there is 4,6 hours of idle time). Please reply back once you have beaten the game.
Can i change to evoland 2? :)))
Yes, Evoland 2 will be fine too. Let us know once you beat it.
I'd like to join, for about more than a year, I only join wishlisted games, so pretty sure I'll play if I win one. Next one I'll go is Punch Club, which I finally recently won and activated today. Is that fine?
Also, what does "finished playing" stand for? 100% achievement, or running the normal route of the game to the end? If so, I've recently won Cally's Caves 3, and finished normal mode, and two side stories, but have yet to finish New Game+, and about half way to 100% achievements...
Hi KetchupGod, Punch club will do fine. Please reply back once you have beaten it.
Finished playing stands for completing the main story of the game (if it has one). Getting 100% of the achievements is not required.
Congrats! Membership request approved, welcome to the group! :)
Hi, i'm gonna go with option 2 if u will :)
Hi Identitools, you can join with option 2, looking forward to see what game it is gonna be :) Membership approved, welcome to the group!
Thx, just made my GA, Serial Cleaner
I'd like to join with Option 1, is Data Hacker: Initiation alright? I ended up winning it shortly before I left Steamgifts for a few months, so this seems like a great chance to try it out and join a really interesting group!
Hi TeacupTyrant, Data Hacker: Initiation will do fine. Let us know once you beat it :)
Alrighty! It only took a few "less than sleep filled" nights, but I beat it at last! It was honestly pretty good, which was a pleasant surprise. Unlike the unpleasant surprise of my favorite party member ditching me at the literal final boss.. but, hey, that's what I get for believing in a guy with "Hyena" in his name! But that's me learnt, never trusting anyone like that again! You know the old saying: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me.. er, five times, shame on me!" ^^
Sleep? What is this sleep thing you are talking about? - written from my phone in bed at 4:15AM
Glad to hear the game was good! And I will keep in mind not to trust this guy when I get around playing that game :D
Membership request approved (hope I got the right steam profile), welcome to the group! :)
It is that thing that you do when you aren't playing games. It is a rather uncommon spectacle, much like a Diamond Unicorn, or a trustworthy Hyena! And if you do plan on playing it, I suggest you prepare to either grind for a few hours towards the end or take a class in the Art of Dodging. ^^ (Don't worry, you approved the right Tyrant! But I'm not sure what would've happened if you accepted a degenerate like the CoffeeTyrant)
Ah right that thing! I managed to get some an hour after I wrote that last message \o/
Considering I just 100%ed a game that took over 200 hours of grinding yesterday I think a few hours are not gonna kill me :P
Glad to hear I didn't fatfinger someone else into the group. And tea>>>>>coffee c:
Falling asleep as early as 5:15 AND 100%ing grind filled games? Inconceivable!
Wait, what am I saying, of course a devoted Teacup Denizen like yourself could achieve such a balanced likestyle!
Invite me in your group please
Hi Grassoff, with which option would you like to join?
Hi, Do I need to play one of the won games?
Please read the "How to join" section. You can either play a game you won or make a giveaway for the group.
This comment was deleted 5 months ago.
Thank you. Group invite requested. i am good gamer :D
Hi Flaverand, with which option would you like to join?
Ok, and which game would that be that you are gonna play?
Tricolour Lovestory :D
The game needs to be something you won on SteamGifts and as far as I can see you did not win Tricolour Lovestory from here.
sorry , so i play Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun i win this game
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun doesn't work either because you already played it in September. Please read the "Option 1" under "How to join" carefully and pick an appropriate game.
sorry so, i can play The Official GamingTaylor Game, Great Job! :D
The achievements for The Official GamingTaylor Game might or might not be working. You can try to play and see if they work or you can choose something else again.
so i can play Lozenge or From The Sky: New Horizon
Lozenge will do 100% fine. Reply to this comment once you are done.
And done but last 2 achievements is very hard =(
I didn't have trouble with the 3000 score personally, but the 10000 one is indeed hard and took me something like 16 hours to get. Either way, join request approved, welcome to the group! :)
thx you :D
I'd like to join
Hi wurzel19xx, with which option would you like to join?
Option 2 group giveaway: "Scribblenauts Unlimited" OK?
It is! Join request accepted, welcome to the group :)
game is online!
👍 I hope whoever wins it will enjoy it, its a great game :)
Hello, I would like to leave the group longer. Can I just leave the group myself?
Can I possibly join again later with my positive balance?
Hey, yes you can. I would just like to note that we don't have any activity requirements if that is the issue here. Since you don't have any unplayed wins you are welcome to rejoin at any time you wish, just leave any of the admins a message (or simply comment on this thread) :)
This is my favorite SteamGifts group. Out of the unbundled games I've given away so far the only one where somebody has not only played more than an hour but looks like they're actually going to beat the game has been a PA giveaway. You guys are amazing 😍
Hi there, I'd like to join if I can with Option 2.
I'd be looking to give away 5 copies of Portal of Evil: Stolen Runes CE: https://store.steampowered.com/app/361850/
Can pick something else if that won't work, my old source for giveaways Tremor is pretty much dead now so am picking stuff I own from the weekly deals that I bought and liked but as usual barely played. Hoping this group makes me break that bad habit >.<
Hi HairyGoober, giving away 5 copies of Portal of Evil: Stolen Runes CE will be more than alright. Please request to join on the group page :)
Awesome, request sent :3
Accepted, welcome to the group! :)
Hi! I'd like to join, option 2 as well. For now I think I could give away DreadOut or Deadlight.
Hi zerishizeh, giving away either one of those 2 games will do fine. Join request accepted, welcome to the group! :)
Thanks! I'll be making a giveaway in the group in the next few days :)
Please do it as soon as possible, thanks!
This might be a silly question, but I just want to clarify if there's anything extra I need to do when I'm making a Playing Appreciated giveaway, other than posting the 'play this within one month if you win' blurb.
Does the tool do the rest, or do I have to post it in the thread in the steam group?
Not a silly question at all. The tool does everything automatically :) It only updates once every 12ish hours (Reforced can tell you more accurately) so it sometimes can take a bit for the up to date data to show up.
That's a really robust tool!
Thank you - I'll keep this in mind for the future.
It is incredibly handy and I can't imagine moderating PA without it. To Reforced if he sees: thanks for listening to all my stupid requests <3
If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask! Feel free to also just shoot me a message on Steam if its easier for you :)
<3 And I can't imagine PA without MouseWithBeer anymore. :)
also good, because I have 2 more requests for you, but I shall let you know in private when you got time :P
Now you make me feel envy :(
B-but don't be! One team, one PA! :3
Happy Cakeday :)
Damn you are faster than me :(
This is not a competition ;-P
Thank you Adel! :)
Hi Mouse. I need to talk you concerning the group. I've sent you a friends request. Thanks in advance.
Just as a note: issue cleared up and waiting to be solved properly.
You are right and I have forgotten.. :O Must make a proper celebration soontm :) Thanks, icaio :3
