Should I save my coal for the drawing or craft it into something. I am doubting my chances due to the fact that I'm not doing all the give away achievements (only done 6 for all 3 days). There will probably be people who have bought every one of those games and done all those achievements. So should I save or craft?

Depends if you want to push your luck.
There's a big chance you'll get a crappy coupon by crafting.
There's a big chance you'll get *nothing* from the Coal Prize Pool. (Either that or Valve Complete pack if you're lucky)

So if you can handle the sadness from crafting something ♥♥♥♥ty go for it.
Otherwise keep the coal and if you don't win anything just pretend crafting it would've given useless crap anyway.

Or if you want to stay in the safe side, keep them and try to sell them for games in the trade sub-forum. :)

I think I'll do this. Probably craft any left overs on the last day

Depends how much. If you end up with more coal then all the achievements would give, I'd say hold on. But if you have under like 40 I'd say craft/trade.

Well I doubt I'll be trading for coal unless its for coupons I don't want. They should implement something where you can exchange a "useless" coupon for 1 or 2 coal, would be handy.

Yup. I got a 50% off coupon for Osmos, a game I've never been interested in even when it was 75% off or more (as it is now). I don't think anyone is going to want it, I'd have to pay to get rid of it.
