Beat the Barman Drinking Game

All About Cocktails   Endurance Drinking Games



Another game for the insane; very, very, dangerous. As the story goes, nobody has ever won, lost or drawn.

Some tips :
Don't play it in a crowded bar (you may lose 'your' barman).
Make sure the bar staff are friendly and can take a joke (very important to avoid a draw).
Don't make any plans for the following morning.

The steps are very simple :
The drinker approaches the bar and orders a shot drink (whisk(e)y, bourbon, vodka, etc., etc..).
The drinker pays for the drink with too much money (i.e. hand over a $5-bill for a $2 drink).
As the barman goes away to get change, the drinker shoots the shot.
When the barman returns with the change, go to step number 1.

The game ends in a number of possible ways:
drinker falls over (Result: Bar wins).
barman punches drinker's lights out (Result: Draw).
drinker gets thrown out (Result: Draw).
bar closes (Result: Drinker wins).
