  3. Thanks for all the love everyone. It is a WAY fun date night. You can find instructions on how to play any of the dates on the website. But a quick overview:

    Stack Attack: you stack cups into a pyramid and then collapse them back down.

    Nutstacker: Using a chopstick and 9 nuts (the kind you use on bolts) you place each one on top of the other on a flat surface. (Sorry, sort of confusing to explain.)

    Ping Tac Toe: 9 cups filled with water and you have to bounce ping pong balls into the cups with three in a row.

    Sorry I can't explain them any better here jbc, but the website gives little videos to explain them even better! Good luck and hope you enjoy it.

    1. Found you on Pinterest. This looks so fun and I can’t wait to try. I do want to just point out to you though, it should be “special EDITION” not addition (as in math.) Easy mistake- thought you might want to fix though. Thanks for the great idea.

      1. I noticed this too! I really want to use this for my husband’s birthday, but I just CANNOT with that typo. Call me crazy, but this bugs the crap out of me!
