What you need: Wrapped gifts, dice and a timer.

How to play: Everyone brings a wrapped gift, which is placed in the middle of the room. Once everyone is seated, have the players start rolling the dice. When they get a pair, they can pull a gift from the pile. The dice continue to be passed around to those who have not yet rolled a pair. When you get down to two people rolling dice, the last person to roll a pair selects one gift and the other person gets the final present. Now, everyone has fun opening their gifts and seeing what they received.

The rules: For the next part of the game, set a timer for 10 or 15 minutes and give the dice to the person who received the last gift. He or she rolls the dice, and if a pair is rolled, he or she can now trade gifts with anyone. However, if someone rolls a pair of sixes, then that person can trade gifts with anyone, and the gift he or she chooses is his or hers to keep. No one can steal it. After a player rolls the dice, he or she then passes it off to the next player (either to the right or left).

How to win: Continue playing the game until the buzzer goes off. Once the buzzer sounds, the last turn is finished and each person gets to keep their gift.
