    Basically you can now trade un-used games on Steam as well as inventory items for certain games.

    For the Christmas sale, Steam is giving out free trade-able gifts to people, in the form of coupons, games, and lumps of coal. (7 of which can be traded in for a game.) To get them, go to the Steam home-page, and click on the "Great Gift Pile" and there'll be a list of achievements that you can complete to gain gifts. For instance, one of today's is to win a match on Commissar House in RO2.

    Good luck with that.

    I headed on over to the Steam forums, advertising my DOTA 2. I got like 5 or 10 different offers for it, I settled with Portal 2. Nice.

    I now have an extra copy of Portal for anyone that wants to trade.

    You don't just get free games for coal.

    Each piece of coal counts as one entry into the Epic Holiday Giveaway (1 winner gets EVERY GAME ON STEAM, 50 people get top ten items on their wishlists, 100 people get top five items on wishlist, and 1000 people get the Valve Complete Pack). Coal can be traded to other users or seven lumps of coal can be turned into one Gift which can either turn out to be a game or a coupon.

    BTW for anyone who's a Team Fortress fan I have, but don't know why I have them, Ellis' Cap and The Frying Pan up to trade as well since I don't really want them.

    If you're following the gift grab event, I have some remarks:


    Coupons are near worthless because of their limitations: almost every coupon is outdone by the current sale. The people who get coupons now are the people who will not need them. They're for gifting to people who missed the sale. Right now, you can hardly give them away, let alone trade. The only ones worth anything are for big-name expensive titles like Skyrim, and gold coupons that can be used and stack with the current sales (though not cumulatively from what I read)

    Coal is near worthless also, because of the large numbers of users exploiting the system by buying the Humble Indie Pack for 0.01 in large numbers to activate their steam accounts and make them eligible for the event. They also get free gifts from the freebie objectives (Steam client objectives and F2P game objectives). Regular 1-account users are... most unlikely to win any of the 1151 prizes unless Steam does something to exclude all the alt accounts. Unless this is done, I'm going to be crafting my coal even if chances are I'll end up with a lousy coupon.

    The only gifts worth anything are the full games and the coupons that can actually save you money during and after the sale.

    EDIT: The Humble Bundle was being abused so much the average went down by quite a lot. So they finally put a $1.5 minimum or something like that a few hours ago. The raffle is still ruined for me, unless they exclude the alts.
