OK, so everyone at work buys a cheapo gift, 20 bucks or less. Then all the gifts are put on a table and names are placed in a hat. The person whose name is first pulled from the hat picks an item off the table. Unwraps it and shows it to everyone. Then the second person has a choice to either take the item from person #1 or take a new item off the table. This goes on for as many people as you have. Each item can only be traded once per turn (so no take backs). If your item was taken from you, you can take somone else's or take a new item from the table.

This game can go on for hours. In our group, the prize is a 10 year olf fruit cake mounted (its been permantely preserved somehow) mounted on a plaque with all previous winners names on little brass cards.

I will update you as to what I win tomorrow.

Goodnight.

We did that yesterday at our dept. party. I thought it was called "Stealing Santa" because you can take someone gift. I ended up with an eight pack of different beer and liqueer filled chocolate bottles. :p
