It's that time of year again — Christmas!
As we did last year, we would love to get together as a community and put faces to names, socialize, play games, and participate in a «White Elephant» gift exchange.
The Gamers' Lodge will waive all gaming fees that night, and will contribute a door prize for every 10 participants in the gift exchange. You must be present and participating in the gift exchange to win.
The rules are as follows:
1. Each participant brings one, wrapped, board game with a retail value at a minimum of $40 (if new/sealed), or $70 (if opened/used);
2. A used game should be complete, and without damage;
3. Buying a new game (for the exchange event) from The Gamers' Lodge will earn you a 10% discount (off your entire purchase — so you can do more xmas shopping at the same time);
4. The draw order at the exchange will be randomized. The first player chooses a gift, opens it, and keeps in full view for all other participants;
5. The next player can either open a new gift, or steal a previously opened gift. If you are stolen from, repeat the process. Each gift can only be stolen once per round, and after three swaps in a round, the player must open a new gift and can no longer steal;
6. After all players have had a turn, the first player will get one final chance to steal in a special final round. This final round will not have the «three-swap» maximum. Chaos!
