A couple of weeks ago I posted the instructions for the card game Pairs on Wheels. Another popular traditional family card game is Farmyard Donkey.
Again, this game is fairly straight forward but a great way to keep children occupied and get them thinking.
The card game consists of 17 pairs and the "Donkey Card". Firstly, shuffle the cards then deal them in a clockwise direction to each player. All players then look at their cards and take out all their pairs, the player to the left of the dealer arranges their remaining cards in their hand like a fan. The back of the cards are shown to the player on the left who then picks a card. If this card makes a pair then the cards are put in the middle of the table with the other pairs. If the player isn't able to make a pair then they keep the card and continue the game by offering their cards to the next player.
When a player eventually loses all their cards they are 'saved' and stop playing. At the end of the game the player who still has the "Donkey Card" has lost and the other players win.
Farmyard Donkey is recommend for Children aged 4 plus and 2 or more people can play.
