In which we wear nifty green visors

So date night last week was


'Cept we don't really play poker.

So instead it was


Because we love that game. Have you played? If not, go here to learn how. You're welcome.

(You're not really supposed to play with two people. We rolled with it.)

We decided to make it more interesting and poker-like by gambling a bit. It makes for much better trash talk.

First round: winner picks dinner (My Man won: I'm making ribs this week)
Second round: winner picks dessert (I won: I'm getting hot fudge brownie sundaes)
Third round: winner picks massage (My Man won: he's getting a shoulder massage)
Fourth round: winner picks chore (I won: My Man will be washing the floor. Soon, I hope.)

Feel free to let the overall winner pick - um - other rewards....

My Man won by a measly 115 points.

Good thing we both win.

We LOVE Hand and Foot. Although, I've found I can only play with my family, since my family is SUPER anal about our rules, and I get all flustered playing with someone else by their own wonky rules :-)

With three people we play Hand, Foot and Belly Button, with three hands. :-)

Oh, and when we play, the trash talk is pretty intense -- so I like playing with my own family and husband so I don't have to worry about other people's different sense of humors :-)

Hand and Foot is the game of choice for my sister and my mom when the three of us have the (rare) opportunity to stay up late in the same place. Way fun. But, um, I'm going to have to check out your scoring because 10,000 points after four rounds? We must be doing something wrong.

(You should try poker, too. My mom taught us how after we'd had one too many snow days when I was growing up. We gambled M&Ms. It was awesome.)

You guys are so stinkin' cute. I love these ideas you share.

I love Hand and Foot, We never played alone but when we play with friends we go to the weeee hours of the night. Such a cute Idea.

You really do have a gift for happiness.

Hand and Foot Night is pretty much my favorite kind of Date Night.

Becky said...

I used to play that game with my college roomies and the hot guy three doors down all the time! We only played for bragging rights, though. ;)

Kimberly said...

I need to start taking notes on these date night posts. Genius.

Qait said...

Hahahha! Sounds awesome.

We love Hand and Foot.

Further proof that we should all get together sometime.

We'll even get matching green visors!

I am jealous over the green visors. This date night thing is so fun. We did the same thing when our boys were your boys ages. I am loving seeing the similarities and differences.

My hubby and I love to play a nice long game of hand and foot. We do two hands and two feet (plus the original hand) four decks. It is the best game ever. We play with Crayola cards. :) love it
not very many people know how to play that game! I am surprised how many people commented that they have played it.
