3 MAN

NEED 3-10 PEOPLE, 2 DICE AND A DRINK, PREFERABLY BEER, FOR
ALL THE PLAYERS. EVERYONE TAKES A TURN ROLLING A DIE. THE
FIRST TO ROLL A 3 IS "3 MAN." GOING CLOCKWISE AROUND THE
GROUP EVERYONE TAKES A TURN ROLLING. PERSON TO LEFT OF THE
"3 MAN" ROLLS FIRST, USING BOTH DICE. IF HE ROLLS A 7, THE
PERSON TO HIS RIGHT TAKES A DRINK. IF IT'S AN 11 THE PERSON
ON THE LEFT DRINKS. A 9 ROLLED IS A SOCIAL (EVERYONE DRINKS).
WHENEVER A 3 IS ROLLED, WHETHER ON THE DIE OR ADDED UP
(1+2) THE "3 MAN" MUST DRINK. IF A PLAYER ROLLS DOUBLES
HE GIVES ONE DIE EACH TO TWO PLAYERS. THEY ROLL THEIR DIE.
THE PERSON WITH THE HIGHER NUMBER TAKES THE NUMBER OF DRINKS
ON THE LOW ROLLED DIE (OR VICE VERSA). IF THE TWO DICE ROLLED
ARE THE SAME (DOUBLES) THEN ONE DIE IS GIVEN BACK TO THE
PERSON WHO ROLLED DOUBLES FIRST AND HE MUST DRINK DOUBLE THE
NUMBER HE ROLLS ON THE DIE (2-12 SIPS).
IF DICE ARE ROLLED AND NO ONE MUST DRINK THE ROLL IS REFERRED
TO AS "SHIT" OR A "SHITTY ROLL." THE DICE ARE THEN HANDED
TO THE NEXT PLAYER. IF DICE ARE ROLLED AND SOMEONE MUST DRINK
THE SAME PLAYER ROLLS AGAIN.
WHEN THE "3 MAN" ROLLS, IF HE ROLLS A 3 IN ANY FORM HE CAN
GIVE AWAY THE "3 MAN" STATUS TO ANYONE ELSE PLAYING.
VARIATIONS ARE:
FOR 9-10 PEOPLE THERE CAN BE TWO "3 MEN".
TO GET SOMEONE DRUNK FASTER THERE CAN BE AN "OH SHIT" PLAYER
(SIMILAR TO THE "3 MAN") WHO MUST DRINK WHEN A ROLL IS "SHIT"
(OTHER THAN A 3,7,9 OR 11). ONE PERSON MAY BE BOTH "3 MAN" AND
"OH SHIT" AT THE SAME TIME. HE WILL ALSO GET VERY DRUNK VERY
QUICKLY.
