I've been toying witht the idea of a BGG white elephant gift exchange. Figure that this could be managed with some clever Geeklist formatting. Anyone interested in exploring such a holiday trade?

Shipping cost will probably kill the fun

My thinking is that the exchange would be managed online, then shipping once the exchange is complete (eg all participants have made a selection). Maybe that helps in those thinking about international shipping, you only ship once.

This might be a fun thing to try at your FLGS or in your gaming group.

I think the real question would be: Would you enjoy getting someone else's white elephant (after paying to ship yours)?

Maybe you were thinking more of the white elephant in the original sense, but in my experience White Elephant sales contain far more useless trash than they do real finds.
