Requirements for play

2 dice
4+ players


Instructions for play

1. Everyone sits in a circle.

2. Determine the Three Man. This is done by each player rolling a die in turn. The first to roll a three becomes the Three Man.

3. The player to the left of the Three Man goes first, and play continues in a clockwise direction. The player then rolls both dice and acts according to the following combinations:

1:1 Doubles - see below
1:2 Three man drinks (sum to 3)
1:3 Three man drinks (three on die)
1:4 Thumb to table or floor (playing surface)
1:5 Index finger to side of nose.
1:6 Player to left of roller drinks (7 left/11 right)
2:2 Doubles - see below
2:3 Three man drinks (three on die)
2:4 Pass turn
2:5 Player to left of roller drinks (7 left/11 right)
2:6 Pass turn
3:3 Doubles - see below; three drinks twice
3:4 Three man drinks; player to left of roller drinks
3:5 Three man drinks
3:6 Three man drinks; Social
4:4 Doubles - see below
4:5 Social
4:6 Pass turn
5:5 Doubles - see below
5:6 Player to right of roller drinks (7 left/11 right)
6:6 Doubles - see below

However, if on the Three Man's turn, s/he rolls a three or combination thereof, s/he is no longer the Three Man and then can designate any other player as the new Three Man. (This also includes if the Three Man rolls during a doubles give; see below)

Social: Everybody drinks

4. Doubles: The roller has the option of giving both dice to one player or one dice to two players. Whatever the case, the dice are rolled and the number on the dice is what that person(s) have to drink. (ie. roller gives the dice to Y and Z. Y rolls a 3 and Z rolls a five, Y drinks 3, Z drinks 5. Or Y gets both both dice and rolls a 3:5, Y then drinks 8.) However, if the given dice roll to doubles, the original roller has to drink that amount. But the original roller also keeps the turn.

To condense everything:
Total of 7 - Player to right of roller drinks
Total of 11 - Player to left of roller drinks
Total of 9 - Social
Any 3 or sum to 3 - Three man drinks
1 and 4 - Thumb on floor
1 and 5 - Finger on nose
Doubles - Give 'em away
