Always drink responsibly.


Spoons is a low maintenance drinking game that if played at the right speed, will keep you entertained for an hour or two.

  • Deck of Cards
  • Spoons (enough for everyone playing minus one spoon)


Players gather in a circle, with a dealer handing out four cards to each player and placing the spoons in the middle of all players - preferably on a table or other flat surface.

Also, leave the remaining cards in a pile to be drawn from. And, it's good to rotate the dealer along with play, either clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Object of the Game

Get four of a kind first and grab a spoon. If you can't get four of a kind, be quick enough to get the remaining spoons.


  1. Determine who goes first
  2. That player will then take a card off the top of the deck, discarding an unwanted card.
  3. Next player in line repeats the process.
  4. This process remains until a player gets four of a kind. When that happens, all players in the game try and grab a spoon that's in the middle of the table. The person who doesn't is eliminated and must either take a drink, or, finish their drink. House rules apply.
  5. Start the next round by removing both the losing player and one total spoon from either where you started the game, or the total number of spoons remaining.
  6. Play until there is a single victor.
