Final group was; Batman?, 4zb4, Warheck, Eagle V, Somagu, Zayre, and capristo

I setup the drawnames.com group and emailed everyone. I used the email in your profile so if you don't get it check to make sure it's correct:
https://attnam.com/edit-profile

I set the budget at $20 if that's ok with everyone. Let's try to have all the gifts sent by the end of December.

Here is the Steam and email login info. Hopefully nobody has issues with Steam's anti-phishing measures.

Oh, nice. This website is really well done, thanks Eagle for the tip.

It's actually not too late to add more people. So chaostrom, JimmyJ, or anyone else, if you change your mind, be sure to let me know as soon as possible. I'll post again when it's closed.

We can also put our wishlists on the site. So let's put them there. Be sure to make a note of your Steam id as well.

A word of advice: The Steam Sale is most likely coming in the next week, so if you care about getting the most bang for your buck, you may want to wait until a target game is on a daily sale.

And as for those of you who don't want any (digital) games, whether because you simply don't have time for them or otherwise... well, I'm sure your Secret Atavus will do their best, but do keep in mind that international shipping is expensive as hell.

Disclaimer included in my wishlist, but worth mentioning to everyone else
Quote
Games are listed in vague order, with prices in (USD), but feel free to get creative if you want. Find a game I didn't know I wanted, or one I know I didn't want, and agonize me as I am forced to stream it for my friends!
Yes, I know I already have a shitload of stuff on Steam. I solemnly swear to actually make some effort to play these as soon as I can, whatever I get.

And my profile.

Awesome, JoKe, added you to the group!

Thanks for the tip Somagu

I should be pretty easy to buy for considering I only have 3 games

It looks like you can also ask and respond to anonymous questions through the site, so that should help even more

I just included a handful of games on my list for the sake of not knowing what I'll get. More interesting that way! If my Secret Atavus wants me to narrow it down for fear of buying me "the wrong game" (it wouldn't be on a wishlist if it was the wrong game) I can narrow it down.

Listed some possibilities on the site wishlist. If some other thing worthy of sending comes up, I wouldn't mind a complete surprise either. Steam profile is here.

I've joined the drawn names group and added a link to my steam wishlist.
Games are just ordered by their price from low to high, might be different in USD or w/e but they're in order in NZD. There's nothing on the wishlist I don't want.

I too wouldn't mind anything though. Physical gifts are probably going to incur the wrath of international postage fees due to the fact that I'm right on the ass end of the planet.

Looks like everybody confirmed. Make sure your wish lists are up to date, and note the "anonymous question" feature of the site if you need clarification on something. Have fun everyone and thanks Batman? for posting the thread and reminding us!

A glorified DRM platform that has a de facto monopoly over PC gaming.

That makes it sound bad. It's great for game devs to get the word out and actually make money

Since when does Steam have a monopoly?

I got Hand of Fate, NEO Scavenger, and Undertale. But I must sincerely apologize, as I have re-gifted Undertale to my brother, as he actually wanted to play it, and I am not especially keen on it. As penance, I kicked forth another game to my recipient. Forgive me! Also thank you!

you mean you cant go to the store in the mall anymore and buy the games in a box? I am an old person. I still remember playing kings quest and having to take my floppy out and turn it over to continue.

You can't really buy PC games physically anymore, except for the dollar store ones nobody wants. If you can, they usually just contain some of the stuff that you'd otherwise have to still finish downloading from Steam or Origin, which is another similar thing.

Next year, if you'd prefer, we could try to make a physical-only Secret Atavus, but we'd have to set the budget closer to $30 or $40 if we want to get anything reasonable and still include international shipping prices. Sorry if this has all disappointed you.
