Once you’ve gotten a handle on the rules of the Around the World drinking game, it’s a doddle to play. Maybe try a couple of ‘dry’ runs first to get into the swing of it?
Sip Score: *** (Medium-Sipping game)
Game Description: This is a card drinking game played in two rounds. Players aim to correctly guess which card they will draw from a blind pack. Wrong guesses will suffer the consequences of a drinking penalty.
Number of Players: Minimum of two.
You Will Need: A pack of cards, some willing players, plus the all-important liquid refreshments of an alcoholic variety – chose whatever your players like to drink the best.
How to Play: Assign one of the players to the role of dealer/bartender.Dealer shuffles the cards and serve each player a glass of booze with the dealer keeps in the ‘bar’. In the first round, 4 cards will be chosen at random and a certain characteristic of each card will be predicted by players. Dealer chooses which player will go first to predict which card will be drawn from the set of cards. With each of the cards, an incorrect guess warrants a drinking penalty while a correct guess can mean a victory drink or nominating someone else to drink as a penalty. When everyone has taken their go, keep the used cards and proceed to the second round, where the drinking penalties are doubled although the rules remain the same…
Rules of the Game:
CARD 1: Predict the NUMBER of the card to be chosen i.e. Ace and all the way up to 10, where Ace represents 1, being the lowest value card; or, the other way around, with 2 being the lowest and Ace being the highest. Players must decide and agree upon the order of counting before commencing play.
CARD 2: Predict whether the value of the card will be HIGHER or LOWER than card 1.
CARD 3: Predict the COLOR of the card to be chosen i.e. black or red.
CARD 4: Predict the SUIT of the card to be chosen i.e. spades, clubs, hearts or diamonds.
THE CARDS FROM ROUND 1: Dealer should shuffle and then place these in two separate columns face down. Dealer then flips the cards one at a time as each player plays in the same method as in round 1.
You Lose: If you select one of the same cards in round 2 that you selected in round 1. Loser drinks a double penalty!
