Nice Comment from Florida
I asked Diane how she became an AHnF Player and this is the pleasant response I received;
Our friends brought this game down from Wisconsin.
The rules were so different than the original hand and foot I wasn’t sure I would like it. It didn’t take long though to become addicted. We play at least four times a week now!
When I said to Diane that Wisconsin is the capital of American Hand n Foot she said, “Leedsburg, FL may well become the reining capital!
Jeannie from MO ordered a game for her brother, who resides in Utah, for his birthday.
What a testimony we heard from Jeannie today! Sooo Much Fun to listen her story and other very similar stories. It is what keeps us going, thank you, thank you!
She says her group of 7 gets together often at Lake of the Ozarks in MO and when they do it’s a MARTHON game, Playing for as many as 14 hours at a time. It goes without saying that these folks are longtime friends having gone through grade school, high school and college together.
Jeannie, we hope that our game has not only given your group many hours of fun times but that it has also strengthened your wonderful friendships.
Now that will be very tough to beat, Jeannie! Thank you! We are so happy you folks LOVE our game!
We extend our greeting to all who visit us here and those who play and enjoy our “best card game”. This Easter will be one that is far different than any I have experienced, more than likely you as well. Never the less, it is still Easter with the same wondrous meaning so we are sending our sincere wish for you;
What is the reason for chips in the game??
Early in the development stage of our game Dot, one of the twin founders, was determined to have something significant to make sure everyone in the game KNEW that a player was in their “Foot” and is likely closer to going out so be aware!
The first thing she came up with was that each of the players were to choose our own unique “noise” for the event. My “noise” was to use my mouth and blow making a trumpet sound. The tune was the trumpets “Charge”! Others had their own unique sounds, it was kind of fun and sort of sappy at the same time! #familyentertainment
Dot continued to look for something better to use and one day came home with 6 very nice children’s books and proceeded to cut from the book the attached frogs which when pushing downward on the frog it made a croaking noise. That was our “going into the foot warning” until later Dot making the decision along with Auntie to change these indicators to the presently used red chips.
Hope you can enjoy this little story and that you are staying safe and healthy during these very trying days.
