Spoon Hunt

by Kat

The spoon hunt game is for 6-20 players and you will need at least one person not participating.

Before the game starts have the person not playing hide spoons equal to the number of players in a room but don't let the other guests see.

First you will sit in a circle leaving enough space for movement. One person not taking part will hand out cards until the deck is out (some people will have more than others). Use two decks for more than 20 players.

The game starts and each person hand one card to the left. Once someone holds a pair the person with the two cards (pair) throw their cards into the middle, everyone else put their cards face down in front of them where they are sitting, all jump up and run to the room to find a spoon. You may not run across the circle of cards, only around without stepping on any cards. If you kick or step on any cards, you may not search for a spoon and only continue to play when the rest return.

The first person to find a spoon shouts SPOON and the group go back to the circle, sitting down at any face-down set of cards in the circle. The person with the spoon is safe and sits out. The group pass a card to the left until someone gets a pair and follow play as above.

Do this until there are just a few people left.

The people with the spoons now decide on an act, play or song the few people without spoons should perform.

I have played this at camps, birthday parties and youth groups multiple times and it never gets old. The spoon searching creates a lot of excitement and so does the random act for the losers without spoons.

Alternative: If you have a small number of people you can also pass a card until someone gets three of a kind instead of a pair.
