This is our quirky family tradition: the game of spoons.
You’ve never truly lived until you’ve experienced this hilariousness, TRULY.
This is what happens in slow motion – please make note of the sound effects – I can’t stop laughing!!
How to Play Spoons:
1) Deal 4 cards to each player [if more than 5-6 people playing you’ll probably need 2 decks, mix them all up and keep the jokers].
2) The Dealer keeps the draw pile of remaining cards.
3) Place enough spoons, minus one, for each player participating [think musical chairs elimination style – one less spoon than players at all times].
4) The goal is to get 4 cards of 1 kind and to get a spoon. You can either be the first player to get 4 of a kind and be the first to grab a spoon, OR once you see another player grab a spoon, you must grab one before they are all gone. JOKERS ARE WILD.
5) Each player may only have 4 cards in their hand at one time. The dealer begins drawing one card at a time from the draw pile – he may decide to keep the card or pass it to the next player. If he keeps the card, he must exchange it for another card. Remember – only 4 cards in your hand at all times.
6) If the dealer decides to pass the card or whichever card he discards, he will pass this card to his left and that continues down the line. It continues until someone gets 4 of a kind and THEN madness ensues. GET A SPOON!!!!
Note: Do not fake out a spoon grab – that will get you eliminated. PRONTO. Do not use your good spoons. Do not play with people with long fingernails. Do not allow the spoons to be too far from where you are sitting – measuring helps. Do not play with cheaters. Do not allow children to play – they will get hurt. You might get hurt too. 🙂
Here’s a longer clip of how the game happens:
You’re welcome – go have a #funfriday friends!
Wait – one last laugh, ok? Here’s the screen shot of Kristin missing that spoon…bhahahahahah!!!!

As the beating of cream yields butter and striking the nose causes bleeding, so stirring up anger causes quarrels. [Proverbs 30:33 NLT]
