How to play:
To be the first to collect four similar cards. (1 prefix, 1 found at the front of the word, and 2 prefix examples)
The final two players in the game are co-winners.
**or you can assign points to the co-winners and the first to five is the ultimate winner.
For each player in the game, you need four cards from the deck.
Put the spoons in the middle of the table so that every player can reach them.
Players simultaneously choose one card from their hands, pass that card to the opponent on their left, and pick up the card they've received from the opponent on their right. Each player can never have more than four cards in his hand, so it's illegal for a player to pick up a new card before passing one to the left.
When a player collects four of a kind he, as subtly as possible, takes a spoon and place it in front of yourself.
The player who took a spoon will continue to pick up and pass cards, making it more difficult for other players to realize what has happened. (The player who actually collected four cards of the same rank must always pass the card they just picked up, because passing any other card would break up their four-of-a-kind.)
The last player to grab a spoon, touch his nose, or stick out his tongue is the loser and is eliminated from the game.
