Hershey Kiss Party Game

I have been playing this game since Elementary School in the 80's (to date myself).
I have brought it to my church youth group, school class parties, family reunions, birthday parties, and we've played it just for fun at home.  It is my go to party game.
*Adult supervision is recommended.

First, you need a bag of your favorite Hershey Kisses or Hugs.
(we played it for Valentine's Day and opted for the hugs)

Hershey Kiss

A cake pan to play in. Dump the entire bag into the pan.
(I always leave out a handful in case a player didn't get any)

A metal fork and butter-knife
(plastic will break)

Two Dice and a pan or cup to roll them in.

The object of the game is to roll the dice.  
When a player rolls doubles they get to try and unwrap the 
Hershey's Kiss or Hug only using a fork and butter-knife.

Hershey Hugs Game

Class Party Game

To play:

Have players sit in a circle. 

Place the pan of Hershey Kisses or Hugs in the center.

Start with the youngest player.

Roll two dice one time in a pan or cup, and pass the dice to the left.

Every player that rolls doubles gets to use the fork and butter-knife to unwrap the Hershey Kisses or Hugs, their turn continues until another player rolls doubles.

Once another player rolls double the player must drop the fork and butter-knife into the pan.  The pan is then passed to the player that rolled doubles and they get to unwrap the Hershey Kisses or Hugs until another player rolls doubles and so on. 

In order to keep the Hershey Kisses or Hugs, they must completely unwrap the Hershey Kiss or Hug using only the fork and butter-knife.  The player must then lift the Hershey Kiss or Hug from the pan using only the fork and butter-knife, before doubles is rolled by another player.  If the Hershey Kiss or Hug is not completely removed from the pan when doubles is rolled it must remain in the pan for the next player to try and remove from the pan.  This is the rule that will cause the most conflict and frustration, because the chocolate will more times than not, go to the player that did not unroll it.  It is a very fast paced game.  Get those dice moving around fast.

If a player rolls snake eyes (two ones)  they get a count of 5 seconds of time to unwrap the Hershey Kisses or Hugs before the next player can roll the dice.  Any play by another player during those 5 seconds is void.

If a player rolls a seven or eleven the direction of play 
changes from left to right or right to left.

The kids get a little more hyper and excited as the game proceeds, be sure to ensure no player chucks the fork and butter-knife at other players. Otherwise injury could result. 
*Adult supervision is recommended.

Leave the wrappers in the pan, as they become unwrapped.  
This makes it harder to find the Hershey Kisses or Hugs, 
making the game more challenging.

 *You should check ahead of time with the school or location, some might classify the fork and butter-knife as a weapon.  You could possibly not get to play the game or get into trouble if they classify a fork and butter-knife as a weapon.

We hope you love this game as much as we do!
We'd love to hear about how and where you've played it!

Sing Karaoke while wearing mouth retractors. Watching some one sing a song like "Sexy Back" by Justin Timberlake with a mouth guard/retractor while the are drooling and slurring is hilarious. It's fun for Christmas caroling too.

Extreme Spoons
Instead of placing the sons in the middle of the table,  put them all over the room in challenging places.   You have to run and get them. Careful on where you put them,  things will be broken and fought over.

It's charades with a fully dresses blow up doll. There were a few inappropriate cards that I found.  And several that are not inappropriate,  but you could easily make them inappropriate if you tried.  So,  depending on your group you may need to make a G-rated rule.
