Yankee Swap / White Elephant Gift Exchange
In honer of the holidays lets all get together and have dinner around New Brunswick and do a gift swap. Of course normal exchanges are boring so I think it would be more fun to do a Yankee Swap.
The objective of a Yankee swap is to open, exchange and steal fun gifts from your "friends". Everyone must bring a small (pocket sized) unique, humors, obnoxious or tacky wrapped gift worth less than $10. Nobody should know which gift you brought so don't put your name on it! It should be an item that would appeal to multiple people.
On the first turn, the first person chooses a gift and opens it. On the second turn, the second person gets the choice of "stealing" any unwrapped gift or choosing a wrapped one. On the third turn, the third person again gets the choice of "stealing" any unwrapped gift or choosing a wrapped one. Game continues based on the following:
1. - If a gift is stolen from you, you can steal a gift from someone else, or open a new one.
2. - Turns proceed until everyone has a gift. A turn is ended when a gift is opened and admired by everyone.
3. - A gift cannot be stolen more than once in a turn.
Members that do not bring a wrapped gift will be asked to leave (let's face it, this won't work unless we have a decent amount of players). Do not RSVP "yes" until your committed to coming. I'll post our exact meeting location when I have a better feel for how many people are attending the event.
