Suggestions for other uses for playing cards.
Ideal for 4-5 players, but can be played with more. The goal of Spoons is to complete a set of cards before one’s peers. Once a player has all the cards belonging to that set, they SNEAKILY take a spoon and continue playing as if nothing has happened. Once the first spoon is taken, other perceptive players may take a spoon without having a complete set themselves. There are not enough spoons per player and so the goal is to not be the player left without a spoon.
Put out one MORE set than the number of players, perhaps adding 2-3 extra sets to make it more complicated. Put out one LESS spoon than the number of players. Separate out score cards and answer cards.
