High or Low

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This is another very easy game with a pretty decent buzz factor.
Materials needed: people, beer, cards.

Player one is dealt a card. S/he then guesses whether the next card will be higher or lower than the next card. If wrong, s/he drinks once (because one card was showing). If correct, s/he guesses again.After taking at least three cards, the player may choose to continue or pass, BUT ONLY after having taken at least three cards. If the player pass, the next player starts where the previous left off.

When a player guesses incorrectly, s/he drinks for each card showing. SO, the strategy is to build up a lot of cards and then pass it to the next player.

Before play starts, determine by vote if equal cards are a loss or correct guess.


Variation called Truck Driver, from Scott Bryant

I have a variation for High Low. If you get two of the same card in a row, it doubles the number of drinks to be consumed, and you start again. For example, I have a 3 showing, and I guess higher. Another 3 comes up now. If I miss the next card I drink two times the three card, for six drinks total! It usually gets pretty harsh from there - As in, you can easily rack up 30 drinks from one wrong guess. My frat calls this variation truck driver.
