The Steam Holiday Sale begins!
#1 Posted 19 December 2011 - 06:39 PM
The Great Gift Pile challenges gamers to complete up to six objectives each day. Completion of each objective grants the chance to win a free game or discount coupons for select games available on Steam. If you don't win, no worries, you'll be given a piece of coal. But hold onto that coal! Coal is the ticket to enter the Epic Holiday Giveaway. It's called Epic because the top prize is every game on Steam. The more coal you have, the better your chance of winning. Players may alternatively choose to magically mix their coal into something shiny and new by "crafting" seven pieces into a gift from the Great Gift Pile. So this year receiving coal is a good thing.Didn't get what you want? Steam allows you to trade coal and prizes with your friends. So head over to Steam now to get a hold of some bargains!
Your God, Lord, and Master

Since you can craft one gift from 7 lumps of coal, I wish you could break a gift down to 7 lumps of coal...

I'm getting rather tired of the formula these sales use.
High pressure limited-time sales, with zynga-like metagames for coal, or potatoes, or whatever they come up with next, just so you spend more money on steam, and work for a completely unobtainable grand prize, like every lottery ever.
But hey, social engineering works, you just keep on throwing money at Steam. I've got enough games for now.
