    I have edge! Wait no I don't... But not too many games in general.
    I'd imagine that third prize would be fairly useless for most people... >.< They sure love giving half life away.

    Grand prize would be fucking awesome. Every single game on Steam. :wtf: They'd need to send me a few hard drives too :laugh:

    Yeah, third prize is just kinda, ehhh.

    Anyways, I've got 3 lumps of coal and a 25% off valve games coupon. I think I'm going to save all my coal and hope for at least second prize . . . well, then again, the odds are so low. But I'm afraid I'll trade my coal and get another worthless valve coupon.

    edit: This is a good way for them to bring in some cash. Most people will have to purchase the games featured to be able to do the objectives and then by the time they get 7 lumps of coal to trade in for a "gift" they'll have probably spent more than that gift is worth anyways.

    Picked up Dungeons of Dreadmore for $1.24. Tried the "demo" ;D for a few hours and had fun with it. Might as well support the developer!

    All I've gotten is the 25% off valve and now 5 lumps of coal. At least today I was able to get two of those without having to buy any games.

    Wish I got coal instead of my Orange Box (of which I own every single title already...). That way I would have more entries into the final drawing.

    So where do I retrieve my gifts or coal? The new little message thing top right in Steam?

    Pretty sure wasn't anything there last night. I changed my password to some crazy shit after the latest hacking scares and it's written down at home and can't log in at work now cause I keep forgetting to bring it. :laugh:

    Crap I went to buy Batman LEGO and my wife took my wallet this morning. I think she gets emails from Steam now to warn her about the sales assults on my wallet.
