Don't Eat Pete, Free Download
We played Don't Eat Pete for the first time with the girls tonight. The game is quite popular with my niece & nephews in Las Vegas. For some reason I have failed to introduce it to my kids until tonight.
It was a hoot! Really the most simple of games, but thoroughly enjoyable for everybody involved. Sadie's eyebrows shot up with interest when she found out she'd get to eat candy & little Claire caught on to the excitement of yelling "Don't eat Pete!!" & kept yelling out her mumbled version of it at the wrong times.
I put Dylan on the task of creating the game board while I cooked dinner. The artist in him couldn't just make it simple. I was really pleased with his illustrations in the end. He rocked it! So we decided to make it a free download for other families to enjoy. We plan on laminating our game board so that it can hold up for future uses. You can download it here, print your own game board & enjoy some good times with your family today!
How to play:
Send the first player away from the game board or into another room, then have the remaining players choose which one of the twelve people on the game board will be "Pete" for the round. Place one M&M in each square of the game board. Have the first player come back and begin picking and eating M&M's from the game board. As soon as the player tries to pick "Pete" everyone yells "Don't Eat Pete!" The player keeps all the M&M's picked up before trying to get Pete. Refill the game board and play again with the next player.
You can use cereal or other small snack foods as well as any type of small candy for this game.
