Happy Skipbo de Mayo!

Every year around the end of May, a yearly tradition continues to grow. The playing of SkipBo (see image below) is perhaps the most exciting part of May. In recent years, the competition and excitement we all love has become a tradition similar in name to that of Cinco de Mayo. Eating at an Italian restaurant and the drinking alcoholic beverages (such as Sangria) is usually involved. Currently in its fourth year of celebration, Skipbo de Mayo is has occurred now in 2 states, (Tennessee and Kentucky) and is slowly but surely spreading its reputation as an enjoyable yet competitive way for friends to interact and also meet new people.

If you have never played Skipbo, I suggest you try. It can be purchased at almost any store that carries toys for kids, including Wal-Mart or Target. It is also very inexpensive.

Mapcouch Tip: When you celebrate Skipbo de Mayo, be absolutely sure to tell your friends, Happy Skipbo de Mayo!
