Beer Game: Drunk Driver

Category: Card Games

Beer Games The rules for this are easy, there is a dealer and one 'driver.' The dealer deals 6 cards (more for a greater challenge, less for an easy road) face down to the driver. The driver turns over a card and one of the following will happen:

If the card is a non-face card or ace, nothing happens and the driver moves onto the next card. If the card is a face card or ace, the driver is dealt additional cards based on which card; Jack = +1 card, Queen = +2 cards, King = +3 cards, and Ace = +4 cards. As well, as being dealt more cards, the driver also has to have a drink for each additional card. (ace turned over --- 4 cards and 4 drinks).

The game continues until the driver has successfully made it off the road (gone through all cards dealt). If the dealer runs out of cards, simply reshuffle the cards already played.

P.S. This game is not an endorsement for drinking and driving. In this game as in life, there is a high probability of crashing. If you need to learn more about what we think about drinking and driving, hit the games button below.
