Agony

Here is a game that me and some of my friends (Troy, Sips, Joel) came up with. It is a variation of quarters that we call AGONY. To play you need a quarter, a shot glass, a deck of cards, a bottle of hard liquor (the more disgusting the better) and each player needs a drink. The basic rules of quarters apply:

You bounce the quarter off the table and you get it in the shot glass you get to give away a certain number of drinks.

This is where we added a new twist, when deciding how many drinks you give away you use cards. You can choose how many and what numbers to use (the higher the cards, the more drunk you get). Also in with the cards you put jokers, the Agony cards.

We recommend about 6 cards ranging from 2-8 for each joker. The cards are shuffled and placed face down on the table. So when you get the quarter in you pick a card and give away that many drinks, ex. if you get a 5 you give someone 5 drinks, and then shoot again. BUT if you get a joker, you have to take a shot of the hard stuff and you lose your turn.

If you get it in five times in a row without picking a joker, you make a new rule. The game continues until both of the jokers have been picked. Then you re-shuffle and start again.

The addition of the jokers stops great players (such as myself) from dominating a normal game of quarters.

That's it, thanks.
