OK, Crisis averted!! I took a chance and won!! :D

I did a little experiment, with an older bundle...Then went ahead and clicked the Steam button, for the Amnesia game. Boom, up pops the KEY!! So, I sent T-BOB the key. Should work out, I hope!

I was a little rushed this morning and wanted to see what I could dredge up with my post, in the end, it was just a little more time to investigate and a hint from ManofThem, he asked if it was a game bought before the Gift boxes. That lead me down the path to a result, a little indirectly but, it helped.

Thanks everybody!! :lovetpu:
Thanks for figuring it out. I'm glad it worked out and that now someone else is going to experience the Amnesia DD experience! All this Amnesia talk makes me want to start it up agian :toast:


How is everyone else doing with the games they won? Anyone having issues? Let me know :)

Yeah, Arjai, did the Contrast key worked fine? It's my first time gifting an Steam game so I might have done something wrong. I can still see them on my gift list so that's why I ask.

Alrighty then, expect a PM in a few...

@TRWOV: gifting on Steam is pretty straightforward and easy, so I'm sure it'll be fine. The gifts will sit in your inventory even after you send them out until they are accepted/redeemed by the recipient.

Everybody getting squared away by now, hopefully?

I hit a snag with the Thief game, but it should soon be worked out. I don't know why Steam does random region locking on games, but that's where I am right now with it. I'm awaiting to hear back from my "contact" (lol) but it should all good soon, a few days at the latest.... I hope. :rolleyes: Sorry Doc41 :oops:

Anyway, I hope everyone is good now, ready to hit up some gaming tomorrow night :D

Just wanted to weigh in about Humble Bundle gifts. If there's no option for a gift link, it's because it's an older bundle used actual Steam keys. You should be safe just clicking for a key and copy/pasting that to a PM. I've done it a few times myself.
