Introducing: Ladlenutt

We tried to roast chestnuts over an open fire...turns out, they're actually pretty gross once you roast em.

So, Luke, Amy and I started tossing them around with ladles, and thus turned into a very entertaining game: Ladlenutt.

Rules of Ladlenutt:
1. Must use ladles.
2. Must toss large nutts.
3. Must play with at least 2 players.


How to gain points at Ladlenutt:

1. Catching the nutt: 1 point
2. Catching the nutt in a fancy way: 10 points
3. Not catching the nutt and having it crack open on the floor: -1 point

Tips for Ladlenutt:

1. Roast or microwave the nutts. The softer they are, the less likely they are to bounce out of your ladle.
2. Play with a carpet in between the players, serves as a great boundary.




Good game if you're roasting chestnuts and they turn out totally gross. And maybe a good holiday tradition to start......

In Montreal, as a kid, my parents and I ate roasted chestnuts like they were going our of style...it is an Italian Christmas tradition...after roasting them they were cut in half and the insides were eaten with a spoon...
I haven't had any for dozens of years, and frankly, I don't miss them one bit...
Happy Holidays!

Ange...you crack me up!!!!!!!!!!!! This looks like a fun game. We should play it at the office Christmas party next year or even better. You can buy the ladles and chestnuts as a present! I would definitely fight over that! :)
