POKENO!!!

Once a month in our neighborhood some of the woman get together for Pokeno. We each bring a $10 gift wrapped in a brown paper bag. Each game whoever wins POKENO picks a gift or can steal someone elses gift. At the end we have a cover-all and we each put in $5. We usually have about 10-12 players so the pot is usually $50-60. It's a great girls night out. We rotate who hosts and we have about 15 woman involved so you only have to host about once a year. When it is your turn to host you supply the snacks and drinks. It is a GREAT time. I captured a photo of us playing pokeno tonight. I won once and stole a Starbucks Gift card from Wendy......sorry Wen!

I've never heard of this game, but it must be fun!!! We play Bunko here and it is a hoot. Nothing like spending an evening with the girls and gabbing...oh, and it never hurts to get a Starbucks card, either.
