The Spoons drinking game is a fast paced, fun way to get drunk with friends. Cards are passed one at a time at a fast pace between players until someone has 4 of a kind, causing everyone to rush to grab spoons.Party & Drinking Games — May 6, 2019

How many people can play Spoons?
To play the Spoons drinking game, you need at least 3 people. But you can play spoon with up to 12 players.
Spoons Drinking Game Setup
Players begin by positioning themselves around a table. Grab the deck of cards and leave one set of 4 of a kind per player in the deck (so 4 players could use 2s, 3s, 4s, & 5s [16 cards total] and 12 players would use the entire deck).
Next, place the spoons in the middle of the table (1 less spoon than the number of players). Finally, deal out the cards, totaling 4 per player.
Spoons Drinking Game Rules
There is one caller each round, responsible for saying “pass” out loud, marking when each player must pass a card off to the player next to them (left is default, unless “pass right” is called).
It’s recommended to call out pass quickly, to make the game more interesting and harder to track.
The objective is to collect 4 of a kind, and once a player has acquired 4 of a kind, they place their cards down and grab a spoon, causing all other players to race to grab a remaining spoon.
Since there is one less spoon than there are players, one player will end up losing and having to drink the most. If the final spoon is shared by two players, whoever grabbed the large half is considered the owner of it.
One small suggestion is that you could make losers drink alcohol based on the added value of their cards or something along those lines.
Dangers of playing Spoons
Spoons can be a lot of fun. However, as always you should be aware of the consumption of alcohol and its limits. Drink with caution!
