Hi-Ho Cherry-O

My daughter Phoebe turned 4 yesterday!! My baby is growing up!! One of the gifts we gave her was Hi-Ho Cherry-O. We played it last night, what a fun game! I remember this game from when I was a child.

The object is to be the first player to pick 10 cherries from your tree and fill your bucket.

Here's how to play the game:

In turn, each player spins and plays according to his/her spin:

One Cherry

Pick one cherry from your tree and put it into your bucket.

Two Cherries

Pick two cherries from your tree and put them into your bucket.

Three Cherries

Pick three cherries from your tree and put them into your bucket.

Four Cherries

Pick four cherries from your tree and put them into your bucket.

Bird or Dog

Take two cherries from your bucket and place them back on your tree. (If you have only one cherry, put that one back. If you have none do nothing.)

Spilled Bucket

Dump the cherries out of your bucket, place them back on your tree and start over.

Winning

You win if you're the first player to call, "Hi Ho! CherryO!" indicating that you have 10 cherries in your bucket.
