Everyone needs to bring a wrapped white elephant gift for this meetup. Don't let anyone know what you are bringing or what you brought when you arrive since the surprise is part of the fun. We are doing this post-Christmas because we had other things on our minds during the holiday season (50th and Christmas Special).
If you have never done a white elephant gift exchange here's the gist:
Make sure what you bring is no more than $5 in value. The theme of the "gifts" should be anything within the nerd-realm. I am setting this limit because the point of this is not to get cool stuff, it's to have fun and laugh. Bring something "nice" that you no longer want or found. Everyone takes a turn getting a gift. When it is your turn, you can steal a gift or choose to open an unwrapped one.

This is the first of a variety of game nights we will be having during our meetups. We will be scheduling lots more fun meetings like this one.
So come and join in on the gifting: you might get something awesome! (or not.....)
