DRINKING GAME "ZOOM-SWARTZ-PAFIGLIANO"

PEOPLE ARE ARRANGED IN A CIRCLE WITH DRINKS IN HAND.
ONE PERSON STARTS OFF BY SAYING ZOOM, SWARTZ, OR
PAFIGLIANO. HE MUST LOOK DIRECTLY AT ANOTHER PERSON
WHILE SAYING THIS. THE PERSON WHO HAS BEEN SPOKEN
TO MUST DELIVER A PHRASE TO ANOTHER PERSON. IF HE
DOESN'T RESPOND IN A MATTER OF A FEW SECONDS, HE MUST
DRINK. IF A PERSON SAYS PAFIGLIANO, THE PERSON WHO HAS
SPOKEN BEFORE HIM MUST RESPOND, REGARDLESS OF WHO THE
RESPONSE IS BEING DIRECTED TO. EXAMPLE: PERSON A SAYS
ZOOM TO PERSON B, PERSON B SAYS PAFIGLIANO TO PERSON C.
IN THIS SITUATION, PERSON A MUST RESPOND OR ELSE
HE IS FORCED TO DRINK. OTHERS RULES THAT APPLY ARE AS
FOLLOWS: NO POINTING IS ALLOWED, NO SCANNING OF THE
EYES IS ALLOWED, AND ZOOM CAN'T BE SAID TWICE.
VIOLATIONS OF THESE RULES RESULT IN A DRINK BEING
TAKEN BY THE OFFENDER.

Submitter comment: THIS IS A FAST-PACED GAME. AGAIN, AS THE EVENING PRO-
GRESSES, THE GAME BECOMES QUITE A CHALLENGE BECAUSE OF
THE CONDITION OF THE PLAYERS. IT IS ENJOYABLE AND
FUN TO WATCH, IN ADDITION TO BEING A CHALLENGE TO PLAY.
THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN THIS GAME IS TO BE QUICK AND
ACCURATE WITH YOUR ANSWER.
