Remember to bring a gift to play Dirty Santa.  You must bring a wrapped gift to participate. International Rules of Rules Dirty Santa will be strictly enforced and are available from the hosts upon request.  All disputes, and we hope there are many, will be adjucated, more or less fairly, by your hosts.

                                     Rocky's Christmas Bounty

                                       Two Guy's From the North

The Game:

The game consists of everyone bringing a gift valued between $20 and $25 (or any other value the host sets). At the end of the night, each participant ends up taking a gift home.

GAME RULES So how do we play the game? Let's assume we have 10 players. Someone writes the numbers 1 through 10 on ten little pieces of paper, places the 10 little pieces of paper into a bowl, and everyone draws a number. 

Player #1 picks a gift and opens it, shows it around, models it, reads it or demos it (depending on what it is of course).The person with slip of paper #2 is next. That person can either select another unopened gift or take the gift #1 had opened.If #2 takes #1's gift, #1 must select another unwrapped gift.Next it is #3's turn. #3 has two choices. #3 could select a new unopened gift, or take an already opened gift (#1's gift or #2's gift).Then, if #3 were to select #2's gift, #2 has two choices. #2 could select another unopened gift or select #1's unwrapped gift. However, a gift cannot bounce back and forth between two players without someone else taking possession of the gift in between. 

HOW A GIFT BECOMES "RETIRED" Sooner or later someone else takes your "mp3 player" away from you again. This time you take someone else's gift, a bottle of rare Scotch. Then yet another person takes your bottle of rare Scotch from you and now you can go back and get your "Mp3 player" again. By this time, since the "mp3 player" was taken from you last, it might have been "owned" by several other players and in some cases more than once. Now this is the third time you have owned the "mp3 player" and this time it is yours to keep. The "mp3 player" is retired and you are now out of the game.
