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.

Due to extraordinary high amount of games given away in the group (and the Special Summer game) last month, here is a tiny selection of giveaways we had last month, more comprehensive list can be found here (you can see the top 10 from previous months here)

QGG Main Group
QGG Special Game Group - Casual
QGG Special Game Group - HardCore

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. 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

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.

Hi DubStepLove,
Neither game was ever given away in the group - so it's hard to tell how many entries they will attract.
That doesn't mean you can't try with these games.
But you need to be aware that if you do, and you don't reach enough entries - you would need to find a different game for your "new member first giveaway", and your period of not entering group giveaways will be prolonged accordingly.

I've been playing around with some of the tools to see what games have been given, and I am flabbergasted that there seems to be a lack of final fantasy in the group.

On a slightly side note, how long do recruitment periods last? I'm not sure I can do it this month, so would August open on the 1st?

Hello! Our recruitment closes between the 20th-21st of each month and opens again on the 1st of the following month.

Are you a fellow FF fan? I am also shocked that there hasn't been any FF GA now that you mention it but that slipped my mind as I've played them all on console xD

I'm a big FF fan, but mostly for the SquareSoft titles, don't care much for the Square Enix stuff. It keeps going off further and further from what I liked about IV-IX. Most recently I replayed VII OG on switch out of spite for the remake, and I'm like halfway through VIII.

How did the remake ruffle your feathers? I didn't keep up with the news as I hoped to keep it fresh until it's released on PC, only recently found out the remake is split in parts :o

If you have any other questions about the group, feel free to ask, we don't bite >D

The big 'sin' for me was breaking it into parts. I don't care how much it 'expanded' certain things, it's still stretching an 8 hour max segment into 30 hours and charging 60 bucks for it.

Also, the ending. I won't say more than that.

I don't really have other questions. Mostly I'm just waiting to see what comes in the August monthly bundle right now 'cause I don't think I have any other spare keys that'd work for first giveaway. I'm in Playing Appreciated so I'm familiar with slightly strict rules haha.

Hi GreenTomator,
Unfortunately Rain World only got 2 entries last time it was given away.
Through the Woods was not given away in the group, but does not qualify for a "new member giveaway" according to the rules. (658 reviews with 73% positive)

Thanks,
Mdk

technically, I have somewhere between 50-80 keys of games to give away at any given time, I simply chose the top two on the pile that were rated positive on steam.
Where do you find % rating? I don't see it on the store page, maybe I can just go through my list and give you 10 GAs when I have the time to do so

Hey GreenTomator,
While it's a good thing to have a selection of keys to choose from, as our group name indicates we do not accept any giveaways in our group, but instead have a very strict rules of which games are allowed.
And an even stricter rules for mandatory monthly giveaways.
We belive it's only fair that as each member is able to win great quality games, each member will give away games of similar quality as well.

Regarding the game's Steam rating, there are multiple ways to see it, the simpleset is to hover withyour mouse over the "All reviews" section of the game on Steam. For example: https://i.redd.it/6vp1zzm6pmb11.png

For examples of games of acceptable games that were given away last month, you can see here

Furi will not get you enough entries.
But both FTL and Risk of Rain 2 are fine (Risk of Rain 2 will get you more entries than FTL).

Hello, I would like to join the group when recruitment opens on the 1st. I would give away Book of Demons, but I saw that in the last giveaways it had 3 and 29 entries. Coincidence or was it somehow restricted? I'd like to be able to reach the 12 entries. Thanks :)

Hi Battlewing,
Unfortunately Book of Demons only got 3 entries when it was last given away in the group (29 entries were from a giveaway shared with several other groups and a whitelist). So you will need to choose a different game.
You can see list of example games, and explanation of how to check group entries in the post at the top of this page.

Hello! Nice to hear you are still interested in joining us^^

Call of Cthulhu, unfortunately, would not work as an entry GA. The requirements for an entry GA is the same as the group's monthly GA and is as follows:

  • 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

The requirements for regular GAs in the group are less strict, so this game would be allowed for that purpose, but unsuitable as a monthly/entry GA.

If you would like, this website tracks how many members have/not have a particular game and how many wishlisted it.

Any other questions, feel free to ask here or in our group chat!
