Questions is a drinking game.

This is a favorite drinking game, although it"s often difficult to find people willing to play it.  Mid-level buzz factor. Basic supplies only: people and beer.  It starts with a room full of people, the more the merrier.  The object is to ask a question when it’s your turn, but this is much more difficult than it seems.  The rules are:

  • Obviously, the infraction of any rule is punishable by drink.
  • You can only ask one person one question at a time.
  • The person who asks the question must address the person querried by name; no pointing (newcomers to a crowd are allowed some leeway until they learn names).
  • The questions must be answerable with " yes" or " no", (This rule is optional, but be certain beforehand if it will be observed.)
  • The person asked the question must immediately ask another person.
  • Any hesitation, answering the question, laughing, or doing anything else besides asking somebody a question is punishable by drink.
  • Asking a question back at the person who just asked is punishable by drink.
  • All questions can be asked only once.  Simply rephrasing somebody else"s question is a cheat.  A person who repeats a question must take a drink.

Other notes: If the crowd cracks up (for example,after  a spectacularly personal question), a “ Team Drink” is called. The best way to play is to keep a question or two rolling around in your head to be spewed out after you are asked a question.  Good questions are the innocent sounding ones: “ Has the game started yet?” “ Is it past midnight?” “ Is that button on your shirt undone?” Another good way to play is to get personal (the game usually descends to this level fairly quickly): “ Do you often pick your nose like that?” “ Do you masturbate often?” “ Are your breasts really 36DD?” “ Does your girlfriend arch when you make love?”
