Spoons is a very old game that doesn't require any fancy game board, props or even a timer. In fact, most people have this game already in their homes right now and they didn't even know it. All it takes is a deck of cards, some spoons (one less than the amount of people playing) and some quick eyes with a fast reaction.

The goal of Spoons is to not be the last one to grab a spoon. Kind of like musical chairs, there is one less spoon than there are people playing so the person with out a spoon at the end of the round is out. You can be obvious or very discrete as you take a spoon. In some cases, you could have a match and a spoon but still act like your playing so you can sit back and watch the chaos as everyone grabs a spoon - only thing is you already have one. Spoons is a blast and very fun to play in a party setting.
The game Spoons should come with the following components. These are based off of the original game and don't include components from any expansion packs or different editions.

Jed says:

I have gotten one too many scraps on my hands from playing this game. Fun but dangerous depending on who you are playing with. Some people get vicious as they attempt to grab a spoon.
