There were 3 teams and 3 posters hanging on the wall. Below each poster was a sack with items to draw for Santa. All of the bags contained the same items so that it was fair.

For example, a person might draw out the paper slip that said beard, before they even had a face drawn, or boots before they had the pants, etc.
