Steam’s 2019 holiday sale ended just a few weeks ago, but Gabe is giving you another reason to spend your hard-earned money. Enter the Lunar New Year Sale, which begins today and lasts until January 27 (10 AM PST).

For the Year of the Rat, Valve is running a mini-game where shoppers can open up red envelopes and receive a random amount of tokens (in addition to some Chinese Zodiac trivia). These can be spent at the Lunar Night Market, which is offering everything from chat stickers and animated profile backgrounds to coupons that can be used on game purchases.

Steam users can open a different red envelope every day, so be sure to check in often so you can accumulate as many tokens as possible. Valve will also give you “approximately” 100 tokens for every $1 you spend on Steam.

As for the actual sales, there doesn’t seem to be anything too stunning aside from a few historical lows (e.g., Divinity: Original Sin 2 is 50% off at $22.49), but check your wish lists for potential surprises. Games like Ghost of a Tale and A Plague Tale: Innocence are also, appropriately, 50% off for the Year of the Rat.
