  1. Spoons
    Using plastic spoons or wooden spoons and a deck of cards, place one less spoon than the number of players on the table. Each player will then pass a single card at a time and try to find 4 of a kind. When they do, they take a spoon, and other players follow – the one without a spoon is kicked out. Make sure you have space for players, as this game gets wild!
