After dinner, our own Director and his merry elf
will pass out playing cards from four different decks. Everyone
will have at least 2-4 cards.
If you don't wish to participate don't accept any cards.
Then we will call out the playing cards one by one. Those with those cards will then get a gift from under the tree, and once all those are picked, you can then start 'stealing' a gift from others.
DON'T UNWRAP YOUR GIFT JUST YET!!
No fair hiding your gifts either
-leave them on the table or in a chair so those playing can see.
Once all the cards have been called
and everyone has at least one gift,
then you'll be able to unwrap and see what you've got.
There's always that 'one' gift, beautifully wrapped,
that gets stolen a lot during the game.
At the end, the person who ends up
'winning' the coveted box,
carefully opens it to find anything
from a bottle of wine to a toilet bowl plunger!!!
A reminder that, just like our rides,
the journey to get there is just as much a gift
as the destination/gift itself. 🎁
