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.

Hi Saaguen, if you want to join please reread the join instructions.

1) Your playtime is private on Steam.
2) Sir, You Are Being Hunted doesn't have achievements, which is a must for the game if you want to join with option 1. Since you don't have any other wins you can pick something from your normal Steam library instead (that is unplayed and has achievements).
