This is now my seven year-old's new favorite game. Everytime we play it, he can hardly contain himself because he's giggling so much. It's not too complicated, but it's a lot of fun!

Everyone takes turns turning a card from their hand onto the pile in the middle. Anytime a cherry is turned over, the first person to slap the deck gets to keep all the cards in the pile, adding to their hand. If two types of ice cream that are the same are turned over in a row, slap the deck and get those cards. If an ice cream, then a sauce, then a topping are turned over in order, slap the deck again. But watch out for the spoons! The spoons can change the whole outcome of the game. The person that ends up with all the cards at the end is the winner!

This game moves quickly and you have to think on your feet. I was amazed at how often my son got his hand down first. We love games at our house because they have a tendency to bring us all together and get us laughing. I think Fast Sundaes will be a keeper at our house.
