BEER-HUNTER

THIS DRINKING GAME REQUIRES A SIX-PACK WITH THE OLD PULL TABS.
THERE IS TO BE ONE BEER FOR EVERY PLAYER. PLACE THEM IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE GROUP, BUT TAKE ONE AND SHAKE IT UP REAL GOOD. PUT IT BACK
IN THE PILE AND MIX THEM AROUND SO THAT NO ONE KNOWS WHICH CAN IS
THE "LOADED" ONE. AT EACH PLAYER'S TURN HE TAKES A BEER OUT OF THE
PILE AND HOLDS IT UP TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD WITH THE OPENING
FACING HIM. HE THEN PULLS THE TAB AND IF IT WAS THE "LOADED" BEER
HE GETS DRENCHED, BUT IF IT WAS A SAFE ONE THEN HE HAS TO CHUG IT.
THE GAME CONTINUES UNTIL ALL THE BEERS ARE GONE.

Submitter comment: THIS GAME GETS ITS NAME FROM AN EPISODE IN THE MOVIE "THE DEER-
HUNTER" WHERE A GROUP OF PRISONERS OF WAR WERE FORCED TO PLAY
RUSSIAN ROULETTE AQAINST EACH OTHER.
