Beat the Barman

Game Type: Endurance - B


Another game for the insane; very, very, dangerous. As the story goes, nobody has ever won, lost or drawn.

Some tips :

  • Don't play it in a crowded bar (you may lose 'your' barman).
  • Make sure the bar staff are friendly and can take a joke (very important to avoid a draw).
  • Don't make any plans for the following morning.

The steps are very simple :

  1. The drinker approaches the bar and orders a shot drink (whisk(e)y, bourbon, vodka, etc., etc..).
  2. The drinker pays for the drink with too much money (i.e. hand over a $5-bill for a $2 drink).
  3. As the barman goes away to get change, the drinker shoots the shot.
  4. When the barman returns with the change, go to step number 1.

The game ends in a number of possible ways:

  • drinker falls over (Result: Bar wins).
  • barman punches drinker's lights out (Result: Draw).
  • drinker gets thrown out (Result: Draw).
  • bar closes (Result: Drinker wins).
