Halloween Bones (Spoons) Card Game

My kids favorite quick card game is Spoons.  They love it!  So here is our Halloween version:
  • Count the number of players
  • Place one less bone in center of circle then there are number of players
  • Shuffle the deck of cards
  • Deal out four cards to each player
  • The Dealer places the deck of cards to his right
  • The Dealer then takes the top card, places it in his hand, then chooses a card to discard.  The object is to get four of a kind first.
  • The Dealer discards a card quickly to the player on the left.
  • The Dealers discard pile becomes the player to his/her lefts deck to draw from.
  • Then the player on the left repeats to the player on his left, and so on until all the player now have a discard pile and a draw pile. 
  • Play continues until a player has four of a kind
  • At this time the player grabs on of the bones
  • Once one player grabs a bone all players quickly grab a bone, one player will not get one and is out for the next round.
  • For the next round remove one bone and repeat the above steps until only one player remains.
You can purchase a set too, click here
You could really use any Halloween item in place of bones.

Twigs, Halloween Erasers/Pencils would work for big groups.

Mini Pumpkins (remove stems for safety)
