==Yankee Swap Rules==
Everyone who participates brings in one wrapped gift. (We will only take wrapped gifts to protect the anonymity of the gift) They will be placed in a central location, and the participants will determine the order they will take turns selecting them. For all of the participants, we will assign them a number to determine who goes first. First person opens a wrapped gift that isn't their own, and opens it for everyone to see. The next person chooses a gift, then opens it, and must decide whether to keep it, or swap it for the first player's gift. Every participant in order gets to select a gift, open it, and decide whether they would like to swap it , or keep it. After all of the gifts are chosen, the person who chose their gift first now has the option to swap or keep the gift, and the game is over.
The price range for the wrapped gifts are between $15 minimum and $30 maximum. Gifts that are excluded from the Yankee Swap are T-shirts and Gift cards of any kind (this includes Nintendo e-shop cards). It's recommended that you bring your gifts wrapped.
