1 deck of cards
Beer Snap is based around that popular card game, "Snap".
For people who are not familiar with "Snap", the rules are as follows:
1. A deck of cards is dealt between 2 people, who then take it in turn to place a card between themselves onto a pile.
2. If a card placed on the pile matches the previous card's value, it becomes a race to see which player can shout "snap" first. The player who says "snap" first wins the cards present in the pile.
3. The idea of the game is to win all the cards.
Beer snap is almost the same, but when 2 card values match, and the first player to shout "snap" has been established, the player to shout last has to drink the following amounts of beer from a big (pint) glass:
2-6 --------> 1 finger
7-10 -------> 2 fingers
Face card --> 3 fingers
This game is best played in a large group on a winner-stays-on basis.
