Our group name is also a statement of purpose. We strive to create an environment where all our members can have access to Quality Game Giveaways and a proper chance to win them.

It is a simple aim, or at least, it should be. Since the conception of the group, roughly 3 years have passed and time has shown us that while a goal might appear simple and direct, it will still require a proper structure for it to work. This means that our group rules came into shape after countless revisions and discussions, and while there is always room for flexibility and change, the most important thing is that they are there for good reason: to make things as fair as possible for everyone and ensure that only those who want the same things stay in the same group.

So if you....
...like to give back and enjoy quality games giveaways, this is the group for you.
...like for your games to be played and play the games you win, this can be the group for you.

Here are some giveaways that got 12+ entries in our group recently (you can see the top 10 from previous months here)

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. Full group rules can be found here.
  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. I (Mdk25) will add you as a friend on Steam (so I can communicate with you)
  5. I will invite you to the group

Group recruitment window is from the 1st to the 20th of each month.

GENERAL RULES

• At least Level 3 on SteamGifts
• Have given away "QGG Monthly"-quality games in the past
• 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.

NEW MEMBERS FIRST GIVEAWAY

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 12 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 using the tool provided below, to checking how many entries it got last time this game was given away in the group, 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)

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.

What is your role in the group? Why are you writing to me?
I didn't plan to join exclusive giveaways for the group, I wanted to give away some free games without taking anything in return..."but when I join, I will have a debt, I planned to repay it". It's not forbidden by the rules of the group, it's meaningless to you, but it's important to me.
I realized that there would be no answer, so I was refused, it did not require your intervention. Good luck!

Yes, one of my first winnings, a trilogy with three winners, I thought everyone should have received one of the games, and after a while it turned out to be impossible to leave a negative review, I wrote to tech support more than once, but there is no answer.
I'm not going to buy a game that was given to me instead of the promised one, they even bought me a key to it and asked me to activate it so that there would be no problems...but this is not right, the fraudster should be punished, and by covering his tracks, I myself become such.

As others pointed out, according to group rules - every person joining needs to create a "new member first giveaway".
And said giveaway needs to be created within 48 hours of joining.

If you only want to join to give away some games, and don't want to be bound by monthly giveaways - you can join the "QGG companion group".

Hi!. I would like to join the group!

I have a question: Looking through my older keys I found some games that I would classify as quality games but does not fit the percentage requirements. Some games do however, but I would not call those quality for other reasons. For example, Simulacra has 20168 reviews and is at 87.09% steamdb rating. Personally I can't compare simulacra with Divinity Original Sin 2, that was feature as a giveaway in the group. How should I approach this? Should I go solely on steamdb ratings?

Edit: The example may be weird because simulacra is probably lower than 10p, but I think the example stands if we disregard this.

Edit 2: I forgot, if we go for steamdb rating I want to give away Trine 4 as the monthly game for the group.

Hi mrsvart,
To answer your questions:

  1. We base on Steam rating not on Steamdb rating. These are somewhat different.
  2. There is basic quality requirement - this is for any game given away in the group. ever.
    And there is a different, monthly requirement, which is for 1 exclusive giveaway per month.
    And there is requirement for "new member first giveaway". Which is somewhat similar to monthly, but is still different.
    Simulacra may fit a general basic group requirement. But would not meet a monthly requirement.
    While Divinity Original Sin 2 meets the basic requirement, the monthly requirement and the "new member first giveaway" requirement.
  3. You do not need to choose a monthly giveaway.
    You need to choose a "new member first giveaway" for the group. (according to the rules described in the original post of this thread)

Hi. Alright, so if you can help me figure out how to get hold of steam rating? I tried googling but failed.

I can put Trine 4 or PGA TOUR 2K21 as my new member first giveaway.

To view Steam rating, go to any Steam page of the game, and then hover over the "All reviews" section just below game description (on the top of the page).

Trine 4 got 0 entries when it was last given away in the group (far away from the 16 entries needed) thus it would not be a good choice.
PGA TOUR 2K21 is in a very similar situation.

1,000+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating

Hi! Just a random question: How strict is the quality rule for the first giveaway? For example Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is a great game with 1841 reviews, but only 79.2% of them are positive. Can it be considered a quality game or 0.8% difference or even 0.01% difference is a clear non-compliance?

PS: Not applying to join as I'm too far away from meeting requirements (both, in short and long run). Just curious :)

Please note this rule is for "new member first giveaway".
This is not the minimal rule for giveaways in the group.

So FT:BOS is indeed ok to give out in the group.

Sorry not clarified right away. I was curios exactly about the first new member giveaway. It is much easier and more affordable to have/get a game for a regular group giveaway (as there are plenty of titles that will fit the rules).

• 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.

Oh, I see.
Well, in regards to "new member first giveaway" I tend to be more forgiving in the positive percentage on Steam department.
For example Wolfenstein:Youngblood or Civilization VI both had ~50% positive review on Steam, and were allowed as "new member first giveaway" in the past.
The most problematic point there, is the 16+ entries requirement.
As long as it's followed, the other rules are less strictly enforced.

Hey Derpsley,
Both games were never given away in QGG. But 19 people have Cozy Grove on their wishlist, so it's a good choice for first giveaway.

EDIT - To answer your question:
Monthly GAs don't have any entry requirements.
Even 1 entry is enough for a giveaway to count as monthly.
