    As the title says. Bought the game 3 times and can't give the keys to my friends?

    I try clicking activate on steam but of course I already own it on steam? How do I gift these to my mates?

    Log into your friends steam account instead of yours I guess, not sure how youd do that.

    So you bought the game 3 times, activated one on your own account, did you get the other two as gifts in steam or as keys?. If they are bought as gifts you will be able to find them in your steam inventory, once selected there will be an option to give them to your friends

    Hope it helps

    Oh and another option, if you received the steam-activation-link via email, you should be able to send the link to them

    Still waiting for my posts to get reviewed... and they were all irrelevant.
    Because I have bought the game, to see what you went through.

    Looks like there aren't any gift options on the Keen Software House site, so your friends would probably have to either sign into your KSH account and and claim the game, or have you sign them in there using their steam pass and account.

    Probably best to do in person if possible, then you can sign into KSH, and they their steam account... without exchanging passwords

    Its meeting up in person is not possible, then I would probably choose lending your KSH account to them, and then change the password afterwards, just in case :)

    Trickey, but probably worth it

    So what I had to do was get my friends on their computers to log into my KSH account and do it that way easy peasy. Ish :woot:
