Hello and welcome to the white elephant.
also known as dirty Santa, the white elephant is a game of surprises and stealing. where people sign up and can unwrap a prize or they can steal someone else's prize.
if you want to see it in action here are a few white elephants from the past
2023, 2022, 2021

1. Player #1 will select a gift from the pool and 'open it.' Once I see your post with your number, I'll announce your present.

2. A) Starting with player #2 and after, each player will have a choice: You can either steal a previous player's opened gift or choose an unwrapped gift from the pool. If you choose to steal a gift, you must announce the person you are stealing from and their gift:
Code:I am stealing ____________ from _____________.
This will help me to better keep track of parcels and please @ the person you are stealing so they know it is their turn

If a player chooses to steal your gift, you may choose a new gift from the unwrapped pool or from any player other than the one who just stole your gift (ex. Player 4(Cyndi) steals Player 1 (Nick's) gift. Nick must choose either a new unwrapped gift or she can steal a gift from Player 2 (Emzies) or 3 (Marijke)... x (you). Nick cannot steal back his gift from Cyndi in this turn).

3. After every player has had a turn, Player #1 will have the opportunity to steal a gift if they so choose. And, of course, if you have your gift stolen, then you can choose to steal another gift. Once someone decides to not steal a gift, the game is officially over and prizes will be rewarded.

Rules
1) Prizes are only valid for up to one year (depending on the prize). so as of this post any unclaimed prizes from last years white elephant have been forfeit.
2) this event is an OOC event which means one sign up per role-player not per account. - please sign up with the account you would like prizes awarded to.
3) This site is open to all site members except admins (sorry Nick, Cyndi, and Emzies)
4) there are only 10 spots on the event. if more than 10 people sign up participants will be chosen by random number generator, if fewer than 10 people sign up there will be a spare box (or more)
sign ups close on 18th May. (Australian time)
5) I will @ you when it is your turn to open. and the person who steals off you will @ you. you will have 24 hours to make your move otherwise you will either forfeit your go (In the case it is you turn to choose to open) or you will get a random gift assigned to you (If your gift was stolen)

thank you to Cyndi who has hosted the event in the past, and credit to her for the information on gameplay
