Circle Jerk is a card drinking game that is far less risqué than it sounds so don’t be dissuaded by the slightly off-color name. It’s a lot of fun to play with friends, although they may need a little convincing at first when you ask them to play a game with this name!
Sip Score: ***** (High-Sipping game)

You Will Need: A full deck of cards, plenty of liquor, some chairs, glasses and a table.
How to Play: Sit down at a table with the other players, the booze, glasses and the pack of cards. Assign a player with the role of dealer, who then shuffles the cards.

Rules of the Game:
CURSE WORD: Decide on a curse word at the start of the game which will be used when the cards 6 and 9 are selected.

CARD NUMBER 7: Wild card! The Selector of this card can make up ANY RULE HE WANTS that applies for the remainder of the game. Each subsequent 7 drawn means a new rule can be invoked!
CARD NUMBER 8: Pee-pee time! This is the BATHROOM PASS card. No player can go to the bathroom without having picked this lucky card. Better cross your legs and wait until you have eight!
