NES Yankee Swap
Rules of the Game
Prior to the day of the Swap, people should look for a gift valued at
approximately $20.00. Wrap it and bring it in. These presents will
be put in the center of the table on the day of the Swap.
Everyone picks a number from a hat, 1 through however many of us
The hat and numbers will be provided.
We go through the numbers in ascending order, starting with #1.
Each person has the option of either picking a gift from the pile and
unwrapping it or taking an already-unwrapped gift from someone else.
If the latter, then the newly empty-handed person has the same
either pick a gift from the pile and unwrap it, or take an already-
unwrapped gift out of the hands of someone else.
In any given round, no gift may be "stolen" twice, so each round will
eventually end when someone picks a gift from the pile and unwraps it.
January White Elephant Yankee Swap
NOTE: We have not done a White Elephant Yankee Sway in a number of years. If there is interest, we can certainly resurrect so speak up.
If you received something that you didn't want or need during the holidays,
consider bringing it in for a white elephant swap. The rules of the Yankee Swap still apply but we encourage you to swap out something that you received for the holidays but really can't use. If you want to keep your holiday booty, please consider just buying something valued at approximately $20.00 and joining us in January.
