Game description

Depending on the number of participants there are several spoons in the room. For example, if there are 10 players, you have 9 spoons. In other words, always one spoon less than there are players. Now the team leader starts to tell a story about a spoon. Every time, when he mentions the word “spoon” all kids jump up, trying to get a spoon. One child, however, will end up without a spoon. The game continues until there is only one player left.


To make the game even harder, you also could implement forks and teaspoons in your story. In this case, however, make sure, that those objects are indeed available. Due to the greater choice of words, some kids might get confused which will tickle the funny bone of others for sure.


The last person standing wins the game.
