How are people in the FS/FT section selling Steam games? I didn't think they are exportable.

The reason I ask, is I have two nephews who both are now on Steam. I haven't spent any time looking in to the Family Sharing or if it is easy to set up, but I was looking for a way to give them games from my library. I know I can purchase new games as gifts, but it seems as though some of the sellers on here are selling existing games.

they are probably selling the activation codes since you can't unlink a game from your account to transfer.
Some also sell the entire Steam account as well.

Have you checked out https://www.humblebundle.com/
They have decent deals on games that activate on Steam.

I have an account there, CDKeys.com, and GOG for some cheap gaming goodness. Looks like I'll have to figure out Family Sharing. My wife has a Steam account, so I can try it with hers. Thanks for the info!
