Land-Mines Drinking Games

Land Mines
 It is a quarter game that will get you 
wrecked if you play it long enough.  The more people, the better.  All you 
need is a quarter, a shot glass, a bigger shot glass (preferably 3-4 shots 
worth), a bunch of your buddies around a table that want to get messed up, 
and beer (must be in cans).

To start, just pick a random person to start with the quarter and the shot 
glass.  That player fills the shot glass with their own beer (it is 
important to use your own).  That player flicks the quarter to make it spin 
on the table, and while it is spinning they take the shot.  Then with the 
same hand you took the shot with, catch the quarter between your index and 
middle finger before it stops spinning.

If you catch the quarter before it stops, the person to the left goes.  If 
you screw up, either by not catching the quarter in time or flicking it off 
the table, you must go again.  After 3 misses, you must use the large shot 
glass and try again.  Keep going until you catch the quarter.

Now here is where it gets interesting.  Once you finish your beer, you can 
slam your empty beer can on a spinning quarter during another player's turn. 
  It then stays there for the remainder of the game.  Squeeze the sides in a 
bit to make sure everyone knows it is a Land Mine.  This counts as a miss 
for the player who spun the quarter, and they must go again.

Soon enough, the table will be covered with random Land Mines that will get 
in the way of your spinning quarter.  The Land Mines will cause many more 
misses and a whole lot more drinking.  If a player touches a Land Mine 
during their turn, that too counts as a miss.  Keep playing until everyone 
is sick or there is no more room to spin the quarter.

HINT:  Ganging up on beginners or that special someone you want to get drunk 
is always fun.  You can either save up your empties for that person's turn, 
or team up with another player and make a very small area for that person to 
play in.  This is done by flicking the quarter in the direction of the 
rookie and having another player slam an empty there so a Land Mine is in 
their way the rest of the game.
