Gift Exchange Game

I also would leave the word "Chinese" out of it, even though we used to do this same activity at our staff party and call it a Chinese auction. I would call it a gift exchange game, and explain the rules the same way you did in your post. I would also make sure that the children participating truly understand that they might have to lose the gift they received with their number if a person with another number wants it. We gave up this game at our parties after our social committee felt that it was too upsetting to people. I thought that was ridiculous as I never participated with the absolute certainty I'd get a great gift there, but the point is that even some adults can't handle passing the gift on. Have fun!
