My Cow

Wow, It seems that I have completely forgotten about this blog…well, it is my goal to get back at it.

We just-well two weeks ago, got home from a trip to the Black Hills and the Quigley Shoot in Eastern Montana. It was an awesome vacation and I will share some of our adventures later.

Today I am going to share the travel game that we played…My Cow


What is My Cow you ask? Well, it is a fun road trip game. Epic in fact.

The rules can be as simple as counting the cows you see, however we played with a more complex set of rules.

My Cow This claim is made when you see a cow (or herd of cows) you say “My Cow.” That herd now belongs to you. Each herd counts as one My Cow regardless of the size of the herd.  No one else can claim the herd. We played that buffalo counted as a cow

No Cow This call is used when some one attempts to claim a horse, fuel barrel or other non-cow. Others in the car shall verify whether said object is a cow or not.

Kill your cows This is played when you see a cemetery. Only the person who calls “Kill your cows” is safe. Everyone else looses all of their cows.

Marry my cows This is played when a church is within view. The person calling “Marry my cows” immediately doubles the number of My Cows they have. Cows have no sanctity of marriage and therefore can marry repeatedly. There is no limit on the number of cow marriages.

Eat my cows  This is used when the Golden Arches of a McDonalds come into view. The person claiming this cashes in all of their herds/cows for ONE beef patty.  Much like real life, the patties are indestructible, and cannot be destroyed. Only the first person who calls “Eat my cows” can collect a patty.

Patty my cow This occurs when someone has collected a total of 50 My Cows.

So, what is the point of this game? The goal is to amass the greatest quantity of patties during the road trip. If there is a tie in the number of patties, the tie breaker is the number of cows.

So, who won on our trip? My hubby and I tied, each with a total of 11 patties and no cows, our sweet little E killed all our cows…


Hope you enjoy.
