Beer Game: Multi|
Category: Card Games
This is a game composed of a number of other games and drinking activities. It is a super game for a large group, and getting to know people. Standard supplies are required: people, beers, and cards.
All 52 cards are randomly spread face down across the table. Play begins by the first player flipping over a card and placing it in front of him/her. Each card corresponds to a fixed course of action. After the action is completed, the next player flips over a card, and this continues until every card has been turned.
You can decide what games or 'actions' you wish to assign to each card, but here is a pretty acceptable guide to follow:
10 BIG DRINK
5 Name Game
4-2 Drink Face Value
Refer to the rules for each game. Play only one round to complete the action. Here's the summaries of the rest:
BIG DRINK: Whoever draws a ten has to go get a new drink for this one. The two players seated adjacent to the 'big drinker' will count alternatively (back and forth) from 1 to 10. The 'drinker' must keep drinking until the 'counters' reach 10 or the drinker finishes the drink.
Social: Cheers. Everyone has a drink.
Rule: The player who draws a six gets to make up any rule they wish. When the rule is broken, the offender takes a drink. The rule lasts until the last card is flipped or is abolished by another rule.
Drink Face Value: The person who drew the card must take how many drinks the card says, 2, 3, or 4.
