Irish Snap Drinking Game

Equipment needed: A deck of cards

Please be careful to remove any objects from the table before starting this game. If you don’t want to hurt a friend, be sure to remove jewelry also.

Sit around a table in a way that enables everyone to reach the middle. Deal out cards so that everyone has an equal amount, and put any leftover cards aside. Do not look at your cards, but keep them face down on the table.

The player who starts the game places a card face up in the middle of the table and says «Ace». Then the second person places their card face up on top of that one and says «Two». This goes on up to «King», and then starts over.

If the card matches the value a player says as they lay the card on the table, everyone must shout «Snap!».

Then everyone must place their hand on top of the pile of cards in the middle of the table.

The last person has to drink, and take all of the cards from the middle to their own pile.

The first person that gets rid of all their cards win.
