Game of Spoons

Indoor Free
Card Games, Party Games, Family Game Night

Activity Overview

The goal of the game of Spoons is to try to get 4 of a kind and to be one of the first to grab a spoon. One person in each round will always be without a spoon, earning them one letter in the word S-P-O-O-N-S. The passing of cards should be done as quickly as possible.

A good strategy is to take a spoon in a sneaky manner when other players are least expecting it. You can also fake out other players by pretending to reach for a spoon but you cannot touch a spoon If a person mistakenly grabs or touches a spoon when no one has 4 of a kind, they are also assigned a letter in the word spoons.

Materials Needed

  • A deck of cards
  • Several spoons

How to Play

  1. Deal each player four cards.
  2. Stack the remaining cards in the center of all of the players.
  3. Also, place a spoon in the center to equal all but one of the number of players playing.
  4. To begin a game, the first player takes a card from the deck and places it into his hand. He or she decides whether to keep this card or not.
  5. He or she quickly discards one card from his or her hand and passes it, face down, to the next person in the circle.
  6. Once a person gets 4 of the same rank of card, he or she can grab a spoon from the center of the playing area.
  7. If anyone takes a spoon from the middle, the rest of the players can now grab a spoon, even if they don’t yet have four of a kind.
  8. The player who does not get a spoon in time is assigned the letter S.
  9. The player who stays in the game without spelling out SPOONS wins game.
