Place one M&M in each square of the game board. Have the first player come back and begin picking and eating M&M's from the game board. As soon as the player tries to pick "Cupid" everyone yells "Don't Eat Cupid!" The player keeps all the M&M's picked up before trying to get Cupid. Refill the game board and play again with the next player."
