Thirty-One Drinking Games

Thirty One

	A game of math and drinking. You'll need a deck of cards, people,
and beer. The game follows the same premise as BlackJack, but with
some important variations.
	The object of the game is to get as close to 31 points in
your hand without going over. Aces are 11, all face cards are 10
points, and all other cards are face value.
	Each player is dealt three cards, two face-down, and one
face-up. The play rotates, like in BlackJack, for additional cards. At any 
point in the game, if you think you have a high hand, 28 points or so, you 
can "knock," which means everyone else has one last draw to add to their 
hand. After everyone plays their last card, the hands are laid down and 
the person with the lowest point total has to drink an entire beer before 
they lose again in an ensuing hand. If the person who knocked has the 
lowest point total, that player must also drink an additional penalty 
beer for poor play.
	If someone does not finish their beer before losing again, they 
must drink yet another penalty beer. Finally, anytime someone has a total 
of 31 in their hand, they immediately place their cards down and EVERYONE
else is a loser. Fast play can be a killer.
