Drinking Games ::: Asshole
Minimum Number of Players:
1. Beer, or any alcohol.
2. Deck of cards.
Rules & How To Play:
The first hand of asshole will decide who is the President, Vice-President, Normal People, and the Asshole for the next round.
Approximately 6 or 7 cards are dealt to each player (depending on the number playing, this can be higher or lower). The rank of the cards is as follows (most powerful to least powerful): 2, A, K, Q, ... 4, and 3.
Someone is chosen to go first and they play a card, the next person has two options: To play a card higher than (but not the same) as the previous card, or to pass on that turn. For example, if a 4 is lead, a next player must play higher than a 4, then the next player has to play higher than that. A new hand starts when all players pass, or when someone plays a 2 (the most powerful card).
The last person to play a card, leads the next hand. This proceeds until all players are rid of their cards. The first player out of cards is the President for the next round, the next out becomes the Vice-President, the next players out are Normal, and the last person out is the Asshole.
However, let's say that the person leading has two 5's, this person may play them both, then the next player must play two of the same card higher than five; this player cannot play one card or three cards, only two. As well, three, or even four, of the same card may be lead. The only time a player may lay one card in a situation like this is if it is a two (the power card); a single two, beats everything, and the hand ends followed by a new lead.
The roles for each player are as follows:
President: The President can make any player drink at any time, no-one may make the President drink. The President is the first player to start each round. And the President should never have to refill own beer.
Vice-President: The Vice-President can make any player drink at any time (except the President), the only the President can make the Vice-President drink. The Vice-President goes second in each round.
Normal People: These players can make each other drink as well as the Asshole. They play in the order they finished the previous round; first normal out follows the Vice-President, second normal out follows first, etc.
Asshole: The asshole has to do all dealing of cards, all sweeping of cards after the hands, and can not make any other player drink. The asshole plays last in each round.
At the end of each round, the players should move seats in order to reflect the hierarchy, and proper playing order. Play your lowest cards first.
