Mikelle Posted December 7, 2022 Share Posted December 7, 2022 Welcome to the White Elephant Gift Exchange! In the next post, I will list all participants in order according to the number each person was randomly assigned. This will be the order in which you will choose your gifts. As we go along, keep an eye on this thread so you know when it's your turn. To help you, I will also tag you when it is your turn, and I'll tag you if someone has stolen your gift from you - which means you'll get another turn! (If you're tagged in a post, you'll get a notification, which you can see by clicking the world icon at the top right of the page, near where your profile name shows up). HOW THE GAME WORKS: When it's your turn to pick a gift, you may either steal a gift that has already been "opened" by someone else, or you may choose a new unopened gift. If your gift is stolen from you at some point during the game, then you will get another turn, to either steal another gift from someone else, or choose a new gift. RULES: 1. You may not steal the gift back that was just stolen from you. 2. Each gift can only be stolen twice. 3. The third person who "owns" a particular gift gets to keep it, and that gift will no longer be in play. 4. The first person to choose a gift (first to take a turn) will get a chance at the end of the game to decide whether to keep the gift she has at that time, or steal a different gift from those that are still available. Only fair! 5. We have a lot of participants, and so to keep the game moving along, if someone doesn't drop in within a 12 -hour period (give or take) to take their turn, we'll move on to the next person. The person who missed their turn will be able to make it up at the end. I will be tracking who has what gifts and how many times a gift has changed hands; you will also be able to see that info on the game board. I'll be updating the game board and posting it in this thread each time a gift changes hands. This game will continue until the last person has had a turn and all gifts have settled with their new owners. We have all month, right? 🤶 Try to check in as often as you can, though, to make sure it's not YOUR turn!
