Toss Your Cookies - Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk

As mentioned in our review, playing Toss Your Cookies with children at the younger end of the spectrum proved to be a small challenge. The first few rounds were great and everyone was having fun, but at some point the dynamic shifted and the younger players started to complain that the milk "toss" wasn't fair. This only seemed to be an issue when it was just the milk to be tossed, not a number of cards. To counteract this we worked with our children to come up with...

An Alternative to Tossing the Milk:
  1. Choose a number of unused cookie tiles to equal the number of players minus 1
  2. Mix them together with the milk
  3. Deal them out to the players (except the one doing the "toss"
  4. Whoever ends up with the milk keeps it while the other players return the other cookie tiles to the box
  5. Play continues as normal
