Playing with Peanuts

I have to say I feel supremely honored. My fellow amazing blogger Jennifer B. at the Food Allergy Buzz did a post mentioning my strange fascination with odd uses of peanuts and how I find them both fascinating and disturbing at the same time. She had thought of me because she saw a board game called the Count Your Peanuts Math Game.

So, for Jennifer (great name by the way), and because the Holidays are on the way, I have tried to find other unique peanut games.

The Peanut Butter and Jelly Game
Description: The "Make Your Own Sandwich Game" now comes packaged in an adorable tin lunch box! What better way to transport all those yummy PB&J's you just made? Like the classic children's board game, this card game has you build peanut butter and jelly sandwiches using playing cards that depict all the ingredients. Only this time, a giant rubber fly might land right in your sandwich, or an ant might come and carry some of it away! If you can be the first to build 3 complete sandwiches, you'll win the game - and have yourself quite a feast! Game comes with 54 cards, a plastic fly, and game instructions. For 2 - 4 players, Ages 4 and Up.
The Nutty Elephant Game

Nutty Elephant is a spinning, talking, musical elephant with flopping ears and a trunk that moves up and down. Nutty is always hungry for peanuts. See if he will take one from your hand. As Nutty lifts his trunk up, up goes your peanut. Be the first to get all of your peanuts in Nutty's mouth and you win.
The Comments From the Peanut Gallery Game

Description - The card game where your opinion counts. A fast-moving, fast-talking, really nutty game!

Of course the last is my favorite of the group. But if you ever feel like playing with peanuts, here are some options.

Too funny!! Leave it to you to find more peanut games! I love it. :)

Good comic relief right before the last debate starts! I will attempt to watch. Hopefully, it won't put me to sleep...
