THUMPER

THIS GAME YOU PLAY WITH BEER. EVERYONE IS GIVEN A
SIGN. EXAMPLE, I PINCH MY NOSE. EVERYONE CLAPS
THEIR KNEES WITH THEIR HANDS TWICE, CLAPS THEIR
HANDS TWICE. THEN THE PERSON (ANYONE) STARTS BY
GIVING HIS SIGN AND THE SIGN OF ANYONE ELSE'S
IN THE GROUP. THE PERSON WHOSE SIGN HE GAVE, GIVES HIS
OWN SIGN AND SOMEONE ELSE'S. EACH TIME SOMEONE MISSES
EITHER THE CLAPPING OR A SIGN HE MUST CHUG A BEER.
NEEDLESS TO SAY, PEOPLE LOOK PRETTY FUNNY AFTER AN
HOUR.
