One Up One Down

To play: Announce that you're going to play "One Up, One Down." Ask that anyone who knows how to play not reveal the rules of the game. Sit in a semblance of a circle.

Begin by saying, "I'll start." Then you say one of the following:

1."One up, one down;"
2."Two up;" or,
3."Two down,"

whatever the case may be.

The person next to you must give one of the three available responses (again, the appropriate responses are "One up, one down," "Two up," or "Two down"). You tell that person whether he or she has correctly answered or not. If it is an incorrect response, that person must drink.

You play until every person has figured out the hidden rule. Usually there is at least one person who needs it rather hammily played out for them until he or she gets it.

The rule is the position of the hands. If one hand is on the lap and the other hand holding up or touching your drink, then the response is "One up, one down." If both hands are down, then the response is "Two down." If both hands are up, then the response is "Two up."

Pretty fun, especially since people initially think there is a pattern to the answers, when it's actually random.


*** Warning: this game is intended for a mature audience that is of legal age to consume alcohol. Please drink responsibly and help others safely enjoy alcohol.

There is a mistake in the explanation. Both hands up should get the response "two up" not "two down"!
