Sip Score: *** (Medium-Sipping game)
Game Description: Moose is a coin drinking game which requires players to aim and throw the coin into slots in an ice cube. Throws getting the coin into certain slots of tray or into the glass itself incur shots of alcohol into the mouth!
Number of Players: Minimum of two
You Will Need: A coin, liquor, an ice tray with slots, a glass and some friends.
How to Play: The ambit of this game is pretty straightforward to follow, as with most coin drinking games. First thing is to set up the game. This is done by filling the glass with liquor and positioning an ice tray in front of it. Visually divide the tray down the middle so that there are equal numbers slots on each side. Next, designate the left side of the tray as “give” and the right side of the tray as “take.” That’s the game all set up! For the actual playing of the game, it’s easy as pie. Each player has to take their turn and attempt to bounce the coin into the ice tray, making it fall into one of the slots. The number of drinks to be given or taken is determined by the number of slots up the tray that the coin lands. The last slot on each side is known as the “Moose” slot. Follow the rules for further details of how to play Moose correctly!
Rules of the Game:
MOOSE SLOTS: When a player bounces a coin into one of the last slots, also known as the “Moose” slots, ALL players have to put their HANDS TO THE THEIR HEADS like antlers and say MOOSE!
LAST PERSON TO MAKE HAND ANTLERS AND SAY MOOSE: The last player to make like a moose and say it, has to drink the booze in the glass. TAKE A DRINK!
COIN LANDING IN THE GIVE SIDE: The player landing the coin here has to give a drink to another player.
COIN LANDING IN THE TAKE SIDE: The player landing the coin in the take side has to TAKE A DRINK.
COIN LANDING IN THE MOOSE SLOTS THREE TIMES IN A ROW: Any player that throws the coin and successfully tosses it into one of the moose slots gets to MAKE UP A NEW RULE!
COIN LANDING ON THE TOP OF THE TRAY: If the coin lands on the top of the tray, so that it is not in any slot but covering a slot or slots means the throwing players also gets to MAKE UP A NEW RULE.
BOUNCING THE COIN INTO THE GLASS: Any player that bounces the coin into the glass of liquor positioned behind the ice tray, has to DRINK THE BOOZE INSIDE THE GLASS. Bottoms up!
IF A PLAYER MISSES THE TRAY: Your turn is up. The game moves on to the next player.
IF A PLAYER MISSES THE GLASS: Your turn is up. The game moves on to the next player.
You Lose: There are a couple of ways to be the loser. The first is to be too slow at the start of each round and have to take a shot as the “slowest moose.” The other way to lose is to repeatedly dunk the coin into the glass and have to drink its entire contents!
