Beer Game: Beat the Barman

Category: Endurence/Luck/Blotto

Beer Games Another game for the insane; very, very high buzz factor. As the story goes, nobody has ever won, lost or drawn.

Some tips :
-Don't play it in a crowded bar (you may lose 'your' barman).
-Make sure the bar staff are friendly and can take a joke (very important to avoid a draw).
-Don't make any plans for the following morning.

The steps are very simple :

1. The drinker approaches the bar and orders a shot drink (whisk(e)y, bourbon, vodka, etc.).
2. The drinker pays for the drink with too much money (i.e., hand over a $5-bill for a $2 drink).
3. As the barman goes away to get change, the drinker shoots the shot.
4. When the barman returns with the change, go to step number 1.

The game ends in a number of possible ways:

Drinker falls over (Result: Bar wins).
Barman punches drinker's lights out (Result: Draw).
Drinker gets thrown out (Result: Draw).
Bar closes (Result: Drinker wins).
