Auction with the Booty

Postby freeasamustang » Wed Feb 13, 2008 5:16 am

At the party I hosted, we did a fun little twist at the end. I asked each person to bring a wrapped, inexpensive gift to the party. Afterward, we all sat on haybales in a circle (if you're doing this outside, by the way, haybales are great for atmosphere) and I auctioned off each of the gifts. The guests were able to 'bid' on the gifts with the play money we had used in the game. I did not tell them before-hand what the gifts were for, so some were pleasantly surprised to find that their blackmailing/underhanded dealing had actually gained them more money to bid for real things...and some were un-pleasantly surprised that they had let themselves be swindled out of all their money.
It made for a great time, though - and gave people something to take home besides their name badges.

That's a really cool idea. I'd like to do this with Arabian nights if we do that next. The bazaar/marketplace seems suited for it. :D
