of our gift exchange game are simple:
Each person needs to bring a WRAPPED
gift ($10 value) for the gift game.
Each male should bring a gift for
another male, and each woman should
bring a gift for another woman.
(Men just don't seem really thrilled to
open a gift of sparkling beads...and
ladies just can't appreciate the beauty
of an awesome crescent wrench!)
Please tag the gift as either "MALE" or
"FEMALE". (Guests should also bring a
gift so they can join the fun!)
game starts with the draw of a number.
That person selects a gift from the
table and unwraps it. It's your
gift (for the time being) until the next
person comes up. They have a
choice of selecting a new unwrapped gift
from the table, or stealing yours.
If your gift is stolen, you then go back
up and select another, or you can steal
from someone else, but you can't
directly steal your gift back from the
person that just stole it from you.
A gift can only be "stolen" two times.
The 3rd person who has the gift deems it
"safe" and no one else can steal it.
Either male or female can steal a gift
if it's something they want when it's
their turn. It's a great game with
lots of laughs!
