The Gift Slam says
Competitive Gift Exchange
Hosted by Troy Cunio!

Santa's coming a bit late this year. Typical 2016.

If you want to slam, bring a gift (worth $5-10). All the slammers will put their loot in a pile. We will do a random draw for the order.

The first poet will pick a gift from the pile and open it.
The other poets can either pick another gift from the pile, or challenge the a preceding poet for their gift!
In the event of a challenge, each poet will have 3 minutes to spit a poem (challenger goes first). Audience applause will determine the winner. If the challenger successfully steals the gift, the loser will get to pick another out of the pile. If the gift is successfully defended, the challenger must pick a gift from the pile.

This will continue until the gift pile is all gone. Each poet can only be challenged twice- so bring two poems. If you get something awesome and defend it from two challengers, it is yours and nobody can take it away from you.

We will have a separate gift exchange for folks who don't want to be competitive.
