Thursday Game Night: Open Gaming

We'll be having our first ever Christmas gift-exchange event this Thursday!

You are not required to participate to play games on this night but if you do here are the guidelines:


1. Purchase a NEW board game not less than $20 and not more than $30.

2. Bring it Thursday night and make sure it is wrapped without your name on it.

Here are the rules of the exchange:

1. We will randomly pick numbers out of a hat and whoever draws #1 will get to pick any wrapped gift. They open it and it is theirs for now.

2. Whoever has #2 can do one of two things. They can either take an opened gift from someone and then that person can either steal or pick from the wrapped gifts.

3. We keep going like that until everyone has had a chance to either steal or pick from the wrapped gifts.

4. You can only steal once during the event.

5. You can not steal back a gift that was stolen from you.

6. You can only steal if it is your turn to pick a gift or your gift was stolen from you leaving you with none.

7. Everyone will end up with a gift that brought a gift.

DO NOT get mad if someone takes a gift from you, it is part of the game, it is about having fun!!

See ya guys Thursday!!

    Hate that I had to leave early, but it was still great doing the exchange and seeing everyone! I wouldn't mind doing a Diplomacy day some weekend after the break, as was mentioned, if someone's up for hosting.

    Mike and I had such a *great* time last night. It was good to be back after so long. The gift exchange was brilliant, and we're looking forward to trying out Bohnanza. Getting our buts kicked (along with Eric) by Jon in Munchkin Legends was a grand time with lots of laughs. We hope to be at the next game night, but if we don't see y'all before the winter holidays, hope yours are awesome!

    I may miss part or all of the gift exchange because I'm going for a farewell drink with a friend, but I do hope to get there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
