Last night, the leadership team at my church met up for an end of the year fellowship, which was a great time. I’ve been so blessed to be able to serve alongside them over this past year, and I look forward to what’s to come in the future. We had some dinner, then played a couple games (a hand tapping game and this odd game called “Poor Kitty”), and then closed the night off with some praise and prayer. Afterwards, a couple of us stayed back to play a few rousing rounds of Cut-Throat Uno – it’s been so long since I played! For those who don’t know, here are the rules:
– Standard Uno Rules apply
– Regardless of turn, if you have the same color and number as a card that has been played, you can play your card and cut the rest of the group. So if someone puts a blue-9 down, you can put down a blue-9 even if its not your turn. Also, ‘draws’ are additive…if a person puts down a Draw-4, and then you put down a Draw-4, the next person must Draw-8.
– If anyone puts down a 3 (any color), everyone rotates their entire hand to the right.
– If a person puts down a 7, they have to trade their hand with anyone they wish
– (my favorite rule) you do not have to play card, even if you have it.
This play causes alliances to be drawn and much screaming in large groups. We only played 4 or 5-handed, but it was still fun! You know, people make the best expressions when they are playing games :) Enjoy!
