So How Do You Play a Spoons Card Game?

  1. Players should gather around in a circle. Ideally, you’ll have a round table for everyone to sit at. If not, the floor works just fine. 
  2. Shuffle the deck of cards and give 4 to each player
  3. Put the remaining cards in the middle of the table as a draw pile
  4. Choose a leader
  5. The leader should choose a card from the draw pile and decide if they want to keep it or pass it on
  6. The leader should pass on one card from their hand (leaving them with 4 in their hand) to the person on the right
  7. That person then decides which card to get rid of and then pass one to the player on their right
  8. The last person, before the leader will just discard a card into a discard pile in the center of the table
  9. Play continues in a pretty fast pace with cards being passed from player to player in a circle
  10. When one player matches 4 cards and has 4 of a kind in their hand, they should secretly grab a spoon from the center of the table
  11. Those that notice it should also grab a spoon
  12. Once players catch on they will all start scrambling to grab a spoon
  13. The one player that is too slow to react, will sadly be without a spoon and lose the game 
  14. Reshuffle the cards and let the person that lost the game act as the leader and play again and again
