Unto the Barony, greetings from Kameshima!
Once again, we will be running the “White Elephant” Gift Exchange at BMDL 12th Night this Saturday. However, to try to streamline the process of gift “registration” we will be running things just a smidge differently this year than in previous years.
This year, there will be blank pieces of paper and a bag (or basket, or whatever I decide to bring) at the gift drop-off table. When you drop off a present, write your name on a piece of paper and drop it into the bag. Then, when it’s time for the exchange, instead of counting people up and putting numbers in, we’ll simply draw names one by one out of the hat. No more strategizing based on your number, MWAHAHA!!! ^_^
The rest of the rules remain the same:
* Bring a present (or more than one, if you want, but remember to put your name in once for each present) of approximately $10-20 value. Please remember to mark your present as kid-focused, kid-appropriate or adults-only.
* When your name is drawn, you have the choice to take a present from the table or steal an already-claimed present from one of the other players, who when has the choice to steal or take from the table, and so on until someone takes a present from the table.
* Each present can only be stolen once per round.
Any questions? Email me at cadell at gmail.com. I look forward to seeing everyone (and their presents) on Saturday!
In Honor and Service,
Kameshima Zentarō Umakai
