    Polish poker---all the cards in the pile are dealt out---and if you have a lot of people you do 2 or more packs of cards----you turn your cards over and you need dice. Take out the jokers, Aces, Kings, and sevens out of the packs. First person rolls the dice---whatever shows is the card you can discard--say if you roll an 8, you can discard it---but if you don't then the next person in line can discard it, if they don't, it goes around until the first person with an 8 in their hand can discard---then they get to roll the next---you often get skipped this way. If you have what you roll, then you continue to roll until you don't have that card or you get a 7---if you get a 7 you have to put a nickel in the pot, then it passes to the next person. A jack is 11 on the dice and a Queen is 12---the hard ones to get rid of are the 2's and the Queens---the first person to get rid of all their cards is the winner of the pot. Eventually, no one has a certain number, that number is then dead---if you roll it, then you just pass the dice to the next person---only 7s put money in the pot. It was fun. OH, and at the end, when some one wins, you have to put a nickel in the pot for every card you have left,

    Hey! Thanks for the message! I am in Wausau, where in Central WI are you? I'm sure you are right about after they are gone, but it has been tough watching them go. . .And them all excited and happy about it too! I know they will miss home, but it is good to see that I did a good job raising them to be independent confident young women. emoticon
