Come join us for a special holiday board game night on Saturday, December 14th starting at 4pm!
Each person that plans to attend is asked to bring a small white elephant gift and a holiday treat.
Ben and I will be supplying some snacks & drinks, but we would love it if everyone could bring a festive food or drink item of your own to share with everyone. Cookies are really big hit this time of year. Other options are eggnog, candy canes, apple cider, roasted nuts, hot chocolate, chocolate covered pretzels, etc. If you want, you use the comments section below to let everyone know what you plan on bringing. (PS - If anyone wants to get together sometime to bake holiday cookies & decorate ginger bread houses before this event I am totally game!) :)
White elephant gifts should be bad ass, but inexpensive. Keep it to $20 or less. Small games, geek apparel, ninjabread cookie kits, booze, an embarrassing Christmas necktie I can force Ben to wear to work, pretty much anything fun within budget that you can think of works! If you are not familiar with a white elephant gift exchange here is how it works: Each participant supplies one wrapped gift. Couples - this means each of you individually bring a gift! All the gifts are placed at a central location. The first person opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. On subsequent turns, each person gets the choice of “stealing” any unwrapped item or choosing a wrapped one from the gift pile. When a player's gift is stolen, they can choose to steal an opened gift or select a replacement gift from the pile of wrapped presents. Each turn ends when a gift is unwrapped. The game is over when the last person has taken their turn. It is a lot of fun and fits well in our game spirit. The white elephant gift exchange will take place at 7:00pm.
Come dressed in an ugly Christmas sweater! This is completely optional, but we just might have a special gift lined up for the person in the best ugly sweater. We're not sharing what that gift is just yet, but we hope you'll like it. ;)
