The lights are on
Chances are that you’re getting close to scratching off that last name from your shopping list. Here’s hoping there’s a little bit left in your wallet to take advantage of this year’s Steam Holiday Sale.
The festivus of savings is now underway and will continue through January 3. During the sale, every three votes for the community choice sales earns you a snow globe steam trading card. Cards can also be earned by crafting a game badge (this went live on December 10, so you may be ahead), making a purchase, trading, or buying from the community market.
Once you have 10, you can craft the snow globe badge. Doing so will earn you an in-game item for one of many free-to-play titles, including:
The badge can be crafted as many times as you can cobble the cards together. If you manage to craft a foil badge, you’ll get five of the items listed on this page.
Here are the games on offer for the first day:
