To give you an indication of historical quality of giveaways in our group, here is a selection of some past giveaways:

How to join:

  1. Read all the group rules (especially the "new members rules"), understand them (if anything is unclear - ask me), and be willing to follow them.
  2. See that you comply with all the general rules. if you don't, I won't add you to the group, so there's no point applying.
  3. Leave a message in this thread with the name of the game you're planning for your "new member first giveaway".
  4. One of us (Mdk25 or AZzoCat) will add you as a friend on Steam (so we can communicate with you)
  5. One of us will invite you to the group

GENERAL RULES

• At least Level 3 on SteamGifts
• If you're new to SteamGifts, you need to be a member for at least 3 months, and be a member of at least one other closed group (a group where you need approval to join)
• For users below level 5: User must have a positive Real CV ratio (Check ratio here) OR Positive SteamGifts won/sent ratio
• Clean slate at SteamRep (https://steamrep.com)
• Steam profile has to be public
• Multiple or unredeemed wins within the last year - are forbidden.
• You must try to keep a positive group ratio
• Do not blacklist other members
• Be nice and civil to other members (for instance, if you win, please say thanks to the poster)

GIVEAWAY RULES

We only want quality games in this group, so members need to abide by certain rules when creating giveaways.
• Each giveaway must have 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 60%+ Steam rating OR 100+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating. Games with 10,000+ reviews on Steam are allowed regardless of their steam rating.
• Shared giveaways are allowed (except for monthly, and free games). But need to abide by our quality giveaways rules (steam rating, etc.)
• Optional: If a giveaway is QGG-only, the gifter/creator is allowed to require the winner to play/finish the game within a set amount of time. Applies to "new member" giveaways too.

MONTHLY GIVEAWAY

• Each member will create at least one group-exclusive giveaway every month.
• Monthly Giveaway should finish by the 25th of each month.
• Monthly Giveaway should last at least 3 days
• Monthly Giveaway cannot be region locked
• Monthly Giveaway must have at least 10P value, and one of the following:

  • 10,000+ reviews on Steam and 70%+ Steam rating
  • 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating
  • 100+ reviews on Steam and 90%+ Steam rating

SKIPPING A MONTH

• The ability to "skip a month" was added so people can be able to take a break from SteamGifts when they need to, and not worry about being kicked out because of it. It is NOT a tool to pick and choose which GAs you want or don't want to enter.
• Each member is allowed to "skip a month" (not create any group GAs, including a monthly GA) by simply abiding by the rules. No need to notify anyone about it.
• When skipping a month, you cannot enter any group GAs (i.e. any GA that QGG is in the list of groups).
• You cannot "skip a month" on your first month of joining (i.e. not create your "new member" GA).

NEW MEMBERS

Please read these rules carefully, and only apply if you're sure you can follow them.
• New members need to create a giveaway in 48h upon receiving an invite to the group
• New members first giveaway must be a QGG group-exclusive giveaway
• New members first giveaway must last at least 7 days
• New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished. (Finished = marked as received by the winner)
• New members first giveaway must have at least 16 entries when it's finished. Begging for entries is forbidden. To check how many entries individual games received in QGG giveaways - see insturctions at the bottom.
• New members first giveaway counts as the monthly giveaway of the month he joined
• New members first giveaway cannot be region locked
• New members first giveaway must have at least 10P value, and one of the following:

  • 10,000+ reviews on Steam and 70%+ Steam rating
  • 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating
  • 100+ reviews on Steam and 90%+ Steam rating

(I recommend searching for the game in the group giveaways, and checking how many entries it got last time this game was given away in a group-only giveaway, to prevent the situation where your first giveaway doesn't get enough entries, and you're forced to create a new one to replace it and wait another week)

RETURNING USERS

Users who left the group (or were removed without being banned) and were members for at least 1 month (did not leave on the month they joined), can return to the group, by abiding by the following rules:
• Returning user needs to create a "new member giveaway" on the month of his return. Which needs to comply with all NEW MEMBER rules described above, except the "New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished" rule.
• Upon re-entering the group, the user needs to verify his group ratio (value-wise and amount-vise) is positive. If his group ratio is negative, he needs to immediately create the GAs needed to rectify the situation.
• User wanting to return to the group needs to leave a message here in the recruitment thread.

For full list of rules, see our group rules page

Rules still unclear? Check here

How to check how many entries a game received when it was given away in QGG:

  1. Go to http://www.sgmt.name:8080/SGMT/CheckGameGiveawaysUI
  2. Under “Group” choose from a dropdown: “Quality Games Giveaways”
  3. Under “Name of the Game” write the full or partial name of a game
  4. Optional: You can add “Start Date” if you only want to see GAs from last 3 months for example.
  5. Click on “Get Giveaways Data” at the bottom

A word of advice: This is not one of those groups where nobody really checks what you do, so you can do whatever and nobody will care. This group is more similar to "Actually Playing Games" or "Playing Appreciated" where there are strict rules, and everyone needs to follow them to the T. If you're more a free spirit, who just wants to give some games and win some games, and not to think about it too much - this is not the group for you!

A word of advice #2: If you're thinking of joining the group, and entering as many giveaways as possible until you're kicked from the group - please don't!
Many have tried. All have failed. Our group management tool allows me to see exactly which GAs each member joins, and as soon as I detect new members trying this, this person is kicked from the group and blacklisted by all members.

Management of this group is done using the SGMT tool. All checks and verifications (new user, monthly, GA quality, etc.) are fully automatic.

I would like to apply to this group, for the first giveaway i was thinkin one of these:
Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide
Epistory - Typing Chronicles
And would like to ask if there is an exception to the rules of reviews/rating if the game is on the wishlist of x+ members

Hello Captwookie,
1) Both the games you suggested gotten 0 entries when they were given away in our group, and as our rules say:

• New members first giveaway must have at least 20 entries when it's finished. Begging for entries is forbidden.

So both will not fit as a "new member giveaway"

2) Sorry, but there is no such exception. Our group rules require the following minimum from a game:

• Each giveaway must have 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 60%+ Steam rating OR 100+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating. Games with 10,000+ reviews on Steam are allowed regardless of their steam rating.

There is no games that is wishlisted by a significant number of members and does not pass this criterion.

P.S.
There are now instructions on how to check entries of a game yourself (see bottom of post).

Just checked and i dont have anything that guarantees the 20 entries, most of the games that get 20+ entries are unbundled and i dont have the means to give those type of games

That's not quite accurate.
HumbleBundle monthly headliners consistently get high entry numbers in our group.
For example this month's "Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Collector's Edition" got 30+ entries, and even "Cultist Simulator" got 18 entries at the beginning of February.
Another example is "Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel" which got 19 entries when it was given away earlier this month. And it's been bundled 5 times.

So as you can see, there are plenty of 3-games-for-$12 or even 7-games-for-$12 bundles you can buy that have game suitable as "new member" giveaways in our group.
I do agree that you probably won't find any 10-games-for-$1 bundles with suitable games.
But there is a reason our group is called "Quality Games Giveaways". There are plenty of other groups that give away bundled games of crappy quality. This is not our thing.
Our group is only for quality games out there. Be they unbundled, bundled or even free games.

I was considering joining the group but just noticed the minimum entry requirement for the first GA has risen recently from 17 to 18 and now doubled the original amount from when I first posted to 20. Why was it decided to increase it by that much? Does it go up when a new member gets added? Looking at that site you provided in the OP, the past couple months even some of the unbundled GAs didn't reach 20 entries. I have a decent amount of games that meet the requirements listed for the group but that minimum entry is really high. Any plans to lower it?

it is a dynamic number which I change according to entry numbers of the previous month. The goal is to keep it in the top 20% of group giveaways. Originally it was 12, but it rose over time as the number of members grew. (It's much easier to get 12 entries for your GA from 100 group members, than from 50 members, for example).
We've had some departures last month, so I now updated it according to last month's stats, and it now stands at 16.

I thought it was originally 10 entries, but I very well could be mistaken.

I had a question I'd like to ask before applying. The rule "New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished. (Finished = marked as received by the winner)." This applies only to exclusive giveaways to QGG only and not to shared group/whitelist giveaways correct?

It might have been 10. It's been a while...

The rule applies to any GA you couldn't had access while not being a group member.
So if you have a shared GA with 2 groups, and your not a member of the other group - you're not allowed to enter it.

Right. Ok so if it's shared with another group I'm in like PA it's ok to enter then. Just wanted to make sure.

I'd like to apply for the group. My first GA would be Tooth & Tail.

No problem, just keep in mind that the one that got 22 entries lasted for 5 days, and the one that got 14 entries lasted for 3 days.
Part of the reason we ask new member GAs to last for 7 days (at least) is do that as many people as possible have a chance to join them.
Some people only check SteamGifts once in a few days, some once a week, others only on weekends.... The more time GA runs, the more entries it collects.

Hi, the game you suggested for your "new member GA" (Project Highrise) received only 8 entries last time it was given away in the group:
http://www.sgmt.name:8080/SGMT/CheckGameGiveaways?group_webpage=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.steamgifts.com%2Fgroup%2F6HSPr%2Fqgg-group&game_name=Project+Highrise.&start_date=

How to check how many entries a game received when it was given away in QGG:

  1. Go to http://www.sgmt.name:8080/SGMT/CheckGameGiveawaysUI
  2. Under “Group” choose from a dropdown: “Quality Games Giveaways”
  3. Under “Name of the Game” write the full or partial name of a game
  4. Optional: You can add “Start Date” if you only want to see GAs from last 3 months for example.
  5. Click on “Get Giveaways Data” at the bottom

Last time it was given away it got 24 entries, but that was 10 months ago, and it was bundled on HumbleBundle since, so it may get less entries now. And you might need to create another giveaway.
Just keep that in mind.

Hi, I see from your giveaway history that you have not given away many games that would pass our group rules.
Are you sure you will be able to create both a monthly GA (with even higher standards) and the "new member GA", if we accept you to our group?

This game is wishlisted only by 4 members, so it may be hard to pass 16 entries threshold. Also it was once on humble bundle $1 tier, so probably many already have it.

Human Fall Flat is really hard to say, as far as I can see it was never given away in QGG, but also is not wishlisted by anyone.

Welp forgot about colon while serching. So, it is wishisted by 8 members, but also last time it got only 6 entries.

You can also checking it by yourself.

Are you familiar with the returning members rules?

• Returning user needs to create a "new member giveaway" on the month of his return. Which needs to comply with all NEW MEMBER rules described above, except the "New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished" rule.
• Upon re-entering the group, the user needs to verify his group ratio (value-wise and amount-vise) is positive. If his group ratio is negative, he needs to immediately create the GAs needed to rectify the situation.

What is going to be your "new member giveaway" game?

You can't give away Shift Quantum in QGG, it's against group rules (it only has 17 reviews on Steam).

Northgard is ok.

Group invite sent - Please make sure to check your group ratio one you've synced your Steam account with SG.
