I guess you can't buy a 2 pack of a game as a Steam gift?

I already have Skullgirls, and was going to get the 2 pack and give it to 2 people I know. But it won't let me purchase the 2 pack at all. Not for myself, nor as a gift. I can add the single game and purchase as a gift, but it won't let me buy the 2 pack... Is there something I'm missing?

I think when you buy the 2 pack it automatically gives you a copy and one to gift so it won't let you buy it against cause one copy would have to go to you but you already have it.

It's pretty obvious why they don't let you do this with 2/4-packs. People would then just buy these in bulk during sales and resell them for profit. It's meant for an easy way to get both you and some friends all playing a game together for a bit cheaper.

For the TC, you can just give one of your friends money to buy the 2-pack and tell him to give the extra copy to your other friend.
