So, this idea started floating around yesterday to do a secret santa, assuming you all know how it works, if not (how is the rock you're living under?) it's just when a bunch of people get together and instead of each getting a gift for each other person everyone buys 1 gift for 1 other person in the group, and you know who you have but not who other people have.
That aside, Steam Secret Santa, Each person would buy a steam game for one other person (Someone not participating would do the name drawings) and each person would buy a game for that person they got.
Now, before we get all crazy, We need to set a price range, so we don't get say Colin spending $60 on Skyrim for Spencer and Scumbag Tristen spending $5 on The Binding of Isaac for Colin, leaving Colin sad.
I vote that all gifts should be between $15 and $20, and anyone participating should have some games on their Steam Wishlist so you don't get some game you don't want (THAT IS IMPORTANT!) even if they just provide an idea of what kind of games that person likes.
If you would like to participate, simply sign up in this thread. If you can't afford to spend $15 on a gift for someone, i would recommend against participating, since it is a little unfair to others, but if everyone is ok with it then all right.
Don't tell me I am wrong unless I actually am wrong. --

That's right, i made one, not even the forums are safe.
Anyway, if you guys are gonna plan this make everyone participating in it list all consoles and handhelds. This will make it easier to decide the range of the games. Also, you need someone to figure out the list, they shouldn't be participating. (Keeps it from being manipulated or spoiled)
I figure you should also decide the date, around Christmas would be difficult because I'm sure money is tight and people are away and busy. You could set it up so that nobody opens their gift until EVERYONE receives theirs, it would be cool if yall could figure out a way to multistream the event so you can open them together as a group.
Finally you shouldn't limit the price, you hinder potential amazing gifts. You should however put a minimum limit to avoid disappointment. Another option is that all gifts be something they themselves made or bought and made (that is unlikely because of shipping and etc). Anyway....those are some ideas...don't ask me I'm too broke.

Olawd, you found us.
But yeah, I agree doing a date a bit away from Christmas would be a good idea. But, we could do like a skype call or something to open the stuff up, unless we have a massive amount of people, in which situation I'm sure we could figure something else out.
I agree with a minimum limit, but at the same time, some things are hard to quantify for price. I dunno, I think everyone that wants to be involved just needs to be online at the same time so we can work the kinks out.

Sorry it's taken so long for me to respond to this. I've been...a bit busy. I love the idea, but I don't think there should be a minimum put on it. Some people just don't have enough money and I think it's unfair to exclude them just because they can't spend the $15. It's about giving this season, not receiving...so any giving on anyone's part will feel great to them...and whatever you receive will be on your wishlist anyway, so you wanted it in the end.
