White Elephant Game

Every year at our traditional family Christmas party we play a fun white elephant game. Everyone brings about 7 white elephant gifts...some good, and others not so desirable. We pile the gifts on a table and arrange our chairs in a circle around the unknown treasures or junk.

This is how we roll:
For the first round, we pass around several pie tins with 2 dice in them. If you roll a 7 or an 11 you can take a present from the pile and unwrap it. Once all of the presents are gone, we each take a turn showing what unwrapped.

Round 2: Set a timer for 5 minutes. Pass the tins and dice around again. This time if you roll doubles you can steal someone else's gift by exchanging it for one of yours. Once the timer goes off, you are stuck with what you have. Kaylee and Aaron got lucky this year, they ended up with candy, a gum-ball machine, and some jewelry. I, on the other hand, ended up with a hot sauce holder that attaches to your belt. It will sure come in handy when I am out and about and get a craving for some hot sauce :)

That is a pretty interesting way to play! I like it! We had a primary dinner last Friday and I ended up with a lace toilet paper holder that hangs with a roll of pink toilet paper!
