One Up/One Down

Game Type:

The game is played by getting as many people as possible who have never heard of the game, and setting them all in chairs in a circle. The leader starts by saying one of the following: "one up, one down" or "two up" or "two down". This is decided by the hand position of the person who is speaking. "Down" is considered below the belt (ie: hand on knee). "Up" is considered above the belt (ie: hand on chin).

Then the person on the leader's right must state one the of three options. The challenge is that no one knows what criteria the leader is using to determined which of the three statements to say. The game proceeds around the circle. A player must drink each time he/she states the wrong option (intially the leader will need to tell people if they make the correct statement or not).

Eventually people begin to figure out that the statements are connected to their own hand position, but there are always a couple of "challenged" individuals who keep giving the incorrect statement and drinking until sympathy prevents you from continuing.

Major penalties are assessed against anyone who blurts out the connection between the statements and hand position. Mention this ahead of time. Suggested penalty is either a whole beer, or three shots.
