    I'll be there! Has there been a decision on the White Bantha gift giving option yet?

    Excellent, glad to hear so many nods!

    We haven't had full consensus on the White Bantha thing yet but it's looking likely:
    Maradona - yes
    JT - yes
    Bel-Cam - yes
    Chaddy - yes
    Chuxter - "ambivalent"
    Figgy B - _______ (no comment yet)

    Anybody else I'm forgetting?

    I'll bring a white bantha gift and trade with whoever else does.

    99% sure of yes. Let me check with my better(-looking) half and confirm she hasn't planned something without my knowledge.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Yes! I've got mine picked out already. Should we wrap 'em or bring 'em in opaque bags or something? The fun is in the reveal, I guess - I've never actually done White Elephant.

    WTF? This timing was based on your schedule and only NOW are you checking with her? Yeesh, no wonder wives have to nag husbands!

    Well, there's different versions. In one, you go down into a cellar, and the gun has just one bullet, so you-
    WAIT! Wrong "game," sorry.

    One version is just a simple exchange, no order involved, as long as you get a different gift than you arrived with (usually still wrapped or in a gift bag).
    Another gives you a certain number (often no more than 2) of times where you can "steal" another person's gift (either in unopened boxes/bags guessing at what's the "cool" prize, or knowing what the item is and trade yours for it); by the end, you're stuck with whatever's left.
    You can assign each bag/box a number, then someone picks a number to start and you go to the right or left from then.
    I'd go with a simple put 'em on a table, you pick one that's not what you brung.

    I'm stuck on which to bring: my dented Wal*Mart damaged E1 Chancellor Valorum with missing staff, or my 12-back 96%-graded vinyl cape Jawa. :decisions:

    The way we played is we'd pick a number to assign order and then whoever was number 1 went first, picked a gift and got to open it. We all enjoy what the item is... of course, number 2 then gets to pick and if they don't like what they opened, they get to steal number 1's gift. Then number 3 gets to pick, and if they don't like what they got, they can exchange it for either 1 or 2's gift... and so on. So that the last person really gets their pick of the litter. And then, afterwards, you can try and trade with other people who might be willing to exchange for your item. In the end, the process is more fun than the actual gifting, which isn't the point anyway.

    12-back vinyl jawa? dude, don't try to dump your old trash on us. That's not the point of this.

    Geez....
