Hand and Foot



I love playing games! However, I do have one game that I love playing more than any other, and that is Hand and Foot. For those of you who do not know what this game is, you must find out.

When I was probably in the fourth grade (hehe), my Grandpa and Grandma Houston taught me how to play. I am not kidding my mom and I would visit them several times a week and play cards (H&F) FOREVER. This is one of my favorite memories with my Grandparents. I learned many things from my Grandpa like how to cheat, how to sulk if I lost, what a nasty one is, and lastly that it is never my fault if my team loses :) I also learned from my Granny that I was, "slower than tar going up a hill on a cold winters day!" hahahaha This quote has taught me to stay on my toes during the game, and not take too long on my turn. It is one of my favorites.

I always thought that this was my families game and that not many others knew about it, boy was I wrong. My best friend Lizzie and her hubby play it, my "kinda boy toy" and his family play, as well as my other Grandparents. Every time that I meet someone who plays this game I feel an instant connection to them and know that they are legit. After all, only the greatest know about it :)

Anyway, I have just been playing this game so much with my family, friends, and Jordan's family that I just had to give the game a little shout out :) It is definitely on the top of my game list!

I wish I was one of the few who knew about this game. Thanks for never introducing it to me all those months that we shared a bed.

I know what you mean though. Everytime someone knows what chitty chitty bang bang is, I get pretty excited.

Hand and Foot is one of my favorite games. I think we play a different one from the one you are talking about but I bet they are both fun! :)

Just so everyone one knows, Tori's comment is not legit!
