* WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE RULES
(Please read; if you bring a gift, you are acknowledging the rules listed below)
To participate in the White Elephant Gift Exchange all you have to do is bring a wrapped gift that is valued at $10 or more. The gift must be a collectible toy, brand-new and/or an unopened item with no significant damage to its box. When selecting your White Elephant Gift, be sure to get something someone may want to steal! That’s right… STEAL!
Here’s how the White Elephant Gift Exchange works…
The participants of the White Elephant Gift Exchange will draw numbers starting with 1 and up to the total number of participants.
Once the order has been established, each person takes his or her turn choosing a gift.
The 1st participant opens a gift from the pile and then shows it to everyone.
The next player can either “steal” an already opened gift or be adventurous and go for a wrapped gift from the pile.
If the participant chooses to steal an unwrapped gift, the person whose gift was stolen now repeats their turn and either steals another person’s gift (they cannot immediately steal back the gift that was just stolen from them) or they can unwrap a new gift.
Note – Since gifts can be stolen, the gift in your possession is not actually yours until the game is over. However, a gift is labeled as “frozen” after it has been stolen a total of 3 times. So the 4th person to have the gift in their possession owns it.
When all the gifts have been opened, the person that had the first pick will have a chance (if they want) to steal a gift that is still available. Once they have made their decision, the game is over.
Once again, all you have to do to participate in the White Elephant Gift Exchange is bring a wrapped gift that’s brand-new or unopened and valued at $10 or more.
