M & M Straw Game
Have some extra M&Ms left over from Halloween? Put them to good use with this fun family game.
THE M&M STRAW GAME
What You Need:
-1 or 2 large bags of Peanut M&M's depending on group size
-A big bowl for the M&M's
-Shake straws - like the kind you get from a fast food place
-1 cup/little bowl for every player
-Something to roll the dice in or on (pie tin, box, plate, etc)
Using the straw suck as many M&M's from the bowl as possible before the player to your left rolls a double. Once all the M&M's are gone from the big bowl, the player with the most M&M's wins.
No touching the bowl other than to place it in front of yourself (i.e. don't have one hand on the bowl while trying to suck up the M&M's).
You must roll a double to pass the pie tin on and snag the M&M bowl.
The only way to transfer the M&M's from the bowl to your cup is with the straw by sucking. (NO HANDS!!!)
Step 1: Pour large bag of M&M's into bowl. Peanut M&M's have worked best thus far. Also, a large bag of M&M's is more than enough. I bought a extra huge bag and it was WAY too many!
Step 2: Gather friends and/or family and have everyone sit in a large circle around the M&M bowl.
Step 3: Hand a straw and cup out to each player. Shake straws work the best for sucking.
Step 4: Pass the pie tin around with the 2 dice to the left. Each player rolls. The first player to get a double gets the M&M bowl.
Step 5: The person to the left of the "M&M Sucker" gets the die and keeps rolling until they roll a double. Once they roll a double, they get the bowl and the pie tin moves to the left.
Step 6: Keep repeating until all the M&M's are gone!
