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, sorry but you already played MO: Astray before applying, you will need to pick a different game or do option 2, as that's your only win, you can choose any unplayed game in your library that fits the criteria

Hey, I really like the idea of your group, too bad I haven't seen it earlier! As I have only two wins on this page (I only enter giveaways of games I want to play) and both were from mass giveaways ages ago (played one until it got shut down, didn't like the other one, but both already played), I guess I have to create a new giveaway to be join? Just gave away the stuff I found during cleanup, so I'll use this as a bookmark for the next time ;-)

Hi bioxz, if you already played all your wins, you can pick any game in your library that fits the criteria, or do a giveaway, your call

Also adding to what NoSenses said you will also have to change your playtime info to be public on Steam to join. You can see how to do that in the 2nd chapter here if you don't know how.

Hello! I'd like to join. I can't apply for the option 1, bc I have not win a single game yet. But, I have a remaining game of a bundle and I don't mind to make a giveaway. My only question would be: A new public giveaway or only for the group?

Hi JamesGordon, if you haven't won anything yet you can pick any unplayed game in your library that fits the criteria, or if you want to do a giveaway, must be a group only giveaway that wasn't given away for free before, as you want
