Valentine's Day Gift Event: Gaming Blind Dates!
What is this?
For Valentine's Day, the Tildes Game Gifting Group is offering up a number of "blind dates" for any gamer who is interested in trying out something new. Each gift is a game, but you won't know the game's name -- only the top 4 tags describing the game. Select the tags which most interest you, then find out what it is once it's given to you! Hopefully it's a keeper!

How does it work?
Gifters will offer up a game based solely on its top 4 genre tags on Steam.
Giftees will select a game from the list based on the available tags, and the game will be gifted to them.

Do I need to gift something to receive something?
Nope! It is fine to get a gift without offering one up as a blind date.

Do I need to receive something if I gift something?
Nope! It's fine to give gifts without going on any gaming blind dates.

Do games have to be romance-themed?
Not at all! Any game is valid for giveaway. To make sure that giftees can be relatively confident of the quality of game they'll receive, all games should have a user score at or above 80%.

When will this take place?
Users have until Thursday, February 13, to sign up, either here or in the thread on Tildes. I will post the full list of Gaming Blind Dates on Friday, February 14th. We all know how busy real life can be, so the gifting will remain open until Wednesday, February 19th, so that people have plenty of time to give and receive their gifts.

How do I create a gaming blind date?
Contact me, ruteqube, through Steam chat or PM me on Tildes (username: kfwyre)[tildes.net]. Provide the following information:
  • The title(s) of the games you wish to offer as "blind dates" (make sure they have all-time user scores at or above 80%)
  • The platform, if the game is on something besides Steam (e.g. GOG, Epic Game Store, Origin, etc.)
  • The method you will use for gifting (e.g. direct gifting through the store, Humble gift link, Steam key, etc.)
Please send me your giftable games list by Thursday, February 13.
Please do NOT send me any games/keys directly. You will hold onto those and give them directly to your gift recipients.
I will aggregate all of the blind dates, pull the tags for the games, and post the thread on the 14th.

How do I go on a gaming blind date?
Sign up here or in the thread on Tildes[tildes.net]. Once the blind date options go live on the 14th, you may then request your blind date from the list. Participants are limited to one game, and they are offered up on a first-come/first-serve basis.

Technicalities
  • All gifts are assumed to be Steam games. Any that are for different platforms will be clearly labeled.
  • If a giftee chooses a game they already own or something that cannot be activated in their region, they may choose a different game, and their choice will re-enter the pool of available blind dates.
  • Gifters may gift the game directly through Steam or through Steam keys. As always on SGGG, gray market Steam keys are NOT allowed! Please make sure your keys are from reputable sellers.
  • To make sure that these are quality games that people want, the game must have a combined user score of over 80%.

Signups are now closed. Once everyone is in the group I'll put up the dates!

I'll also make an announcement when they go live, so you don't need to watch this thread for updates.
A moderator of this forum has indicated that this post answers the original topic.

My date is Kentucky Route Zero, enjoying it so far.
Only spent about 20 minutes with my date, Cat Goes Fishing, but it's pretty fun and chill so far. Well, chill except for those stupid shark things that keep eating my fish. But it's fun, enjoying it a lot lol
