The Steam Winter Sale 2018 is on; gamers from all over the world can browse thousands of discounted games on Steam and win digital items throughout the sale.
The sale runs until January 3, 2019. Many digital games offered on Steam are discounted throughout the sale and it is easy to add games to the ever growing pile of shame (games you bought but never really played).
Valve did add a winter event to the sale; you can open a door of the "extremely cozy cottage of surprises" each day to receive digital items such as emoticons, wallpapers, or so-called knick-knack items. Doors can be opened at any time even after the day they were unveiled by Valve.
Items can be sold on the market for a handful of cents and knick-knack items can be consumed to level up a badge.
You get up to three Winter Sale 2018 cards if you explore the queue of game suggestions. These can be combined into badges or sold on the market.
The usual Steam Winter Sales rules apply:

Steam Sales have lost lots of the excitement that surrounded them in recent years in my opinion. Sales are not that special anymore because there are so many throughout the year on Steam alone, and if you take other platforms into consideration, you barely have a month without a sale anymore.
