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 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)
