Snag a Spoon! Game
In the middle of the table, place one less spoon than the number of players. For example, if there are 5 players, use 4 spoons. Deal 4 cards to each player and explain the rules.
The dealer will begin by taking the top card from the deck. The dealer will look at it and decide if they want to keep it or pass it.
If they keep it, she must discard one of her cards and pass it face-down to the player to the left.
If the dealer doesn’t want it, she simply passes the card face-down to the player to the left.
Play continues in a circle until one player gets “4 equivalents of a kind”. That player grabs a spoon – trying to do so secretly. As soon as another player notices someone has grabbed a spoon, they should grab one, too! The player who does not get a spoon is out. Remove one spoon from the center and continue playing until there are no spoons left – whoever gets the last spoon is the winner!
