icon Floating Idea: Summer Sale Secret Santa? (0)  
I had an idea today (not an original one I admit), and wanted to see whether there might be any interest in it.

Fairly soon (I mean a few months from now) it'll be summer in the northern hemisphere, and as a result steam (along with various other online game shops) will probably have some manner of sale. I thought it might be cool to do a secret santa thing during said sale?

In theory, the rules would go something like this:

So, is anyone interested? Also, we could of course expand this to other storefronts like gog or humble as long as it has a wishlist feature and a way to send other people gift games for it. I'm open to suggestions on how to improve the idea if anyone is interested. Of course, if nobody wants to do it that's fine as well, I just thought it might be a cool thing to do.

I'm always open to gifting and receiving gifts.

The only thing other thing is that everyone would have to add everyone on steam. Otherwise, we would know who the secret Santa is. Steam doesn't allow gift giving unless they are on your friends list.

Ah, I forgot how that worked exactly. Well, that could be included as a step with a note that you can remove everyone you added after the event if you want.

In order to preserve anonymity, could we just list the game(s) in which we are interested in a forum post? I have some Steam gift card codes I could use for my gift to someone else.

Argh, I forgot to reply to this for a while, sorry!

That certainly seems like something we could do. Maybe stick your "wishlist" in a secret in the post and then and send codes through PM's instead for those who don't want to post their [whatever storefront] account names here.
