Introduction


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 850 members and over 14500 historical giveaways.

Group rules


  • You need to set and keep your Steam privacy settings for My profile and Game details public (example);
  • You will play all giveaways you win via this group within one month;
  • When creating a giveaway it is recommended to include a small group rule reminder in your giveaway, something like: "This is a Playing Appreciated giveaway, by joining you commit to playing this game within a month when won.".

How to join


  1. Make sure you did not violate any SteamGifts rules in the last month;
  2. Comment one of the two options to enter the group in this discussion:
    • Option 1: Showing your commitment by playing a previous won game on SteamGifts that you did not yet play. The game shouldn't be very short and must have achievements. Comment with the name of the game before you start playing it and comment again when you finished playing it. Please upload some screenshots to Steam as well.
    • Option 2: Supporting the cause by creating a group giveaway of a game that you would like to see getting played by other group members within a month as soon as your membership request was approved. The game should not have been given away free before (marked by ** when creating a giveaway on SteamGifts).
  3. Press "Request To Join" on our group page;
  4. Wait for us to approve your request, we'll always reply on the comment you have made in this topic.

Final notes


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!

my application for joining the group was rejected earlier (most likely a very long time ago). can I be accepted?
if so, I want to choose Option 1 - Mosaique Neko Waifus 4 https://store.steampowered.com/app/1504020/___4/

Hi iShini, you never applied to join the group, all you did was sent a join request on Steam without commenting on this thread and that has been declined years ago. Regardless of that you can still join the group by playing Mosaique Neko Waifus 4, let me know once you beat the game.

Please keep the toxicity and witch hunting out of this thread, thank you. Their position in the group will be judged once they win something from it (which so far they have not) based on the fact if they played said win or not.

Hello! I joined once by making a giveaway, but since I can only gift to one country and no one would enter, I left.
I'd like to try and join again but this time with option 1, playing BalanCity: https://store.steampowered.com/app/462680/ if that's alright.

What if I would give away a game in the group and it turns out to be a dupe?

Hi dxgaming000,
if you mean for option 2 then you would have to find a different way to provide the game to the winner or make a new valid giveaway (game has not being given away for free before, has a winner that has accepted and received the game).
For general giveaways standard SG rules apply, you sort that out with the winner in whatever way they are happy with, we don't interfere there at all (and winners are not required to agree to a deletion if that is what you are asking for here).
But generally I would suggest against giving away keys in giveaways that you are unsure of and can't afford to replace the key.

You claiming that you played your win when you obviously just idled it for 5 hours just reinforced my first decision not to allow you to join the group. The answer is still no and it wont change.
