Cowart's Common Room
Tongues

This is a card game to be played with a number of people, preferably some young - or all tiddly!
4 cards are dealt to each player. The dealer then takes one from the remaining stack and passes a card on. T he next takes that card and passes one on, round and round. The last person in the round puts his/her throw-away in another pile as the dealer goes on taking from the stack, quickly, so that it is fairly frenetic. When a player gets 4 cards the same, he/she sticks her tongue out discretely. As soon as you see the tongue, you stick yours out, also discretely. The play carries on meanwhile and the last person to spot the tongue is the loser. Last night, Grandpa found it a little difficult to understand that he had to keep an eye on the other players as well as his cards - the wine and port, don't you know!LaughingLaughingLaughing
