A card game some friends taught us is called Scum. You play by numbers not suits aces high. You can play sets of numbers and face cards as well each player decides if they can play or pass. There are positions in this game (positions vary depending on how many players and who is playing the game) King, Queen, and Scum are always present. My family has created their own “court”. In our recent game we had: King, Queen, Wizard, Knight, Royal Hipster, Royal Story-teller, Court Jester and Scum. Each position also has a hat. Scum shuffles, deals and collects the cards after each round. King is the winner, first out of cards, and each time a person runs out of cards they are awarded the next position with corresponding hat. I’m not sure how well I’m describing the game, but here are some shots of our royal court:
Here I leave you with the knights as this is a lot of pictures. Next week we will see the rest of the court in all their finery!
Happy mother’s day to all of you!
