Secret Santa Treasures & The White Elephant Gift Exchange.

Friday, 21st December, 5:30pm, Madness

Each participant supplies one wrapped gift (couples are allowed, but there is more fun if there are more treasures!!!).

Cost per gift is approx €5.

The gifts are placed in a central location, and participants determine in which order they will take turns selecting them based on tickets provided to each participant, having been randomly shuffled.

The first person opens a wrapped gift, which now becomes a “treasure”, and the turn ends.

On subsequent turns, each person has the choice of either unwrapping a new gift or to “steal” another’s already opened treasure; if they do, they give the person who’s treasure is stolen their ticket.

When a person’s treasure is stolen, that person can either choose another wrapped gift to open, or can “steal” a treasure from another participant. However, to prevent it becoming an endless loop, there can be only one “steal” per turn.

Each treasure can only be stolen twice. After a treasure has been stolen twice it cannot be stolen again so remains with the current owner.

The event is over when all the gifts are unwrapped and everyone has a treasure; whether they will treasure the treasure and treasure it, or not, will remain to be seen.

Prizes will be awarded for the most elegantly presented gift, and for the most innovative/funny/odd/imaginative treasure provided – the judges will be announced at the start of the event, and the judges decisions will be final…………………. unless suitably induced to reconsider!!

Above all, have fun!!!
