you arrive at the party, you'll choose a slip of paper
with a number. Hang on to the number, you'll need it later.
For the gift exchange there will be one present for everyone
at the party; everything is wrapped. Take a look at the
pretty gifts on the table and think about which one you
might like to have. What could they be? One is worth a
little more than the others...
We'll start with the person holding number 1, who gets
to choose any gift from the pile. Each person gets to
selects a gift in order of the numbered slips until everone
has a present.
Don't unwrap yet!
When everyone has a gift in hand, we start at number
1 again, who chooses to keep what he or she has, or exchange
it for what someone else is holding. Don't be shy about
trading--that's what makes this game lively!
When everyone has had a chance to keep or exchange their
gift, then we can unwrap and see what we received!
