Royal Arsenal Rugby Year End Xmas Party – Let the games begin!

Royal Arsenal RFC 2016 Xmas Party ‘Kris Kringle’ (Secret Santa Gift Giving) Rules

  1. Whoever wants to play brings a wrapped, unmarked quirky gift max. 10 pounds in value.
  2. The gifts are placed somewhere central.
  3. Anyone who brings a gift writes their name on pieces of paper.
  4. All pieces of paper are placed in a container.
  5. The host(Ed) picks a name from the container (this begins the first round).
  6. That person picks a gift and unwraps it (end of first round).
  7. That same person picks a second name from the container (this begins another round).
  8. That new person now has the option of stealing from the first person or picking a new gift and unwrapping it.  If they steal, the first person selects a new gift and unwraps it (end of second round).
  9. Now rounds continue with a new person being selected and end when everyone has made their selection or there are no more gifts to steal (a gift can only be stolen once in a round—to keep track of this everyone places their gifts on their laps at the beginning of a round, and on the floor once they’ve been stolen.
  10. If a name gets selected and that person already has a gift, they have the option of (A) keeping their gift (in which case, the round is over and they pick a new name), or (B) stealing from someone else (in which case, they trade gifts and the round continues).
  11. This cycle of high thievery continues until the last name is picked and that person can keep what they have (game over).
