Here's a great game that tests your players' skills of observation, stealth, and trickery. An item is hidden in a room. The object of the game is for each player to spy the item and then slyly, without letting others see them, remove a spoon from a central location. If other players notice another player removing a spoon, they may do so as well, however, there is one less spoon than players, which means one person is going to end up empty handed. The one left without a spoon must perform a silly trick or challenge thought up by the other players.
