First you dig out the sevens in the deck and then you lay them vertically in a row. Then you deal the remaining cards out to the players. Then the person to the left of the dealer starts. You must get a six or eight of the suit next to the seven. Each time a card is laid you count the cards in the row and give that many drinks (you can divide them up or gang up on someone.) As soon as a player cannot lay a card in sequence they must leave a gap. When a gap is left that player must drink the number of cards in that row, including the gaps. And each time a player plays in that row they must drink the drinks until the gap is filled. The game is over when everyone is out of cards. You get VERY messed up.
