Cucharas, or Spoons, is played just like the popular card game, but with preterit irregular verbs! The objective of the game is to get 6 cards of the same "suit," the suits being the infinitive and all five matching conjugations (ex: infinitive and yo, tu, el, nosotros, ellos), 6 infinitive cards, or 6 of the same conjugated form (ex: all yo form cards). Students must pick a card from the pile, decide if they want it, and discard a card in one turn. Once a student gets 6 of the same suit, he reaches into the middle of the table and grabs a spoon. The last student to grab for a spoon loses!
