2022 White Elephant
December 3, 20226:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This year AFK Games will be hosting a White Elephant! If you are not familiar with this style of event, let us do a quick rundown!
1). Each player brings one wrapped gift to contribute to a common pool.
2). Players draw numbers to determine the order in which they go.
3). Players sit/stand in a circle or line where they can see the gifts.
4). The first player selects a gift from the pool and opens it.
5). The following players can choose to either pick an unwrapped gift or steal a previous player’s gift. Anyone who gets their gift stolen in this way can do the same – choose a new gift or steal from someone else. A gift may only be stolen twice.
6). After all players have had a turn, the first player gets a chance to swap the gift they are holding for another opened gift. Anyone who had a gift stolen may steal from someone else. Assuming that person has not been stolen from yet. When someone declines to steal a gift, the game comes to an end.
