The game consists of 5 separate games which all work very well together. Here are the 5 games and their rules:
-- Thumbs --
At the beginning of the night a 'thumb master' must be selected. After a while the thumb master must discretely place his thumb onto the bar/table and wait for the rest to follow one by one. Slowly all thumbs will go down leaving one person 'the loser' who has to drink 'two fingers' worth of drink. The loser then becomes the master and the process is repeated.
-- Right Hand! --
During the night all people must drink with their left hand, unless they are naturally left handed in which case they must drink with their right hand. If anybody is spotted using the wrong hand they must drink 'two fingers'.
NOTE: You can hold your drink in the wrong hand but must drink with the correct one.
-- Pointing --
Throughout the night you must never be seen pointing at anything. Instead of pointing with your fingers/hand you must use your elbow. If you are caught out you must sink 'four fingers'.
NOTE: A good trick is to ask people questions like "do you know where the toilets are?". This is usually followed by a point in some direction and you punish them by shouting "POINTING!!" and making them down '4 in one'.
-- Freeze --
Freeze is virtually the same as 'Thumbs' except the 'freeze master' has to freeze in any position and everybody else has to follow by freezing in exactly the same position. The person who loses has to drink 'two fingers' and then becomes the 'freeze master'.
-- E.G. --
E.G. stands for 'empty glass'. As the night progresses people will start finishing their drinks. Every time you finish your drink you have to touch your glass on somebody before placing it on the table. If you forget and put your 'empty glass' on the table you will hear everyone watching and waiting scream "E.G!!!" and you will have to go to the bar and buy a fresh pint or whatever drink you are drinking and down it in one!! A real killer. Some people make the mistake of placing their glass that they just downed in one straight back onto the table without touching it on somebody, this results in another visit to the bar and another pint in one... cruel I know!
NOTE: A good trick for this one is, when you finish your drink you can pass the E.G onto somebody else. You can give them your E.G and say "hold that while I strain the python" and if they make the mistake of putting it on the table they have to down a pint in one!! Sick.
Have fun playing these games... it will be a night to remember but it can be quite costly if you are an amateur!
