There are four rounds to start the game out. The dealer starts by asking each person if their first card is either red or black. If they get it right, they give one drink out. If they get it wrong they take one drink for themselves.
The dealer then places the card in front of them. The second round he asks everyone if their card is either higher or lower than their card from the first round. If they get it right they give out two drinks to anyone (they are allowed to split the drinks up). If they get it wrong, they drink two.
The third round the dealer asks if it’s in between the two cards they have, so if the person has a 2 and a 6 and they say 8, it means they got it right because it was outside of 2 and 6. If they get it right it’s three drinks to anyone, and wrong they take three drinks.
The fourth and final round the dealer asks the person if its anyone of those cards you have in front of you or not. If you get it right, give out four. Wrong, take four. One key note is if you guess on one of the rounds and it is a double of one of your cards, then they have to drink double depending on the round.
Now the dealer has three piles, the good, the bad, and the ugly. The dealer sets a card in the good pile. If it is one of your cards, give it to someone else at the table and they have to drink one.
Now you want to have the least amount of cards, because whoever has the most cards at the end of the game has to ride the bus! The dealer then places a card in the bad pile. If you have that card, drink one. Then, the dealer sets a card in the ugly pile. If you have that card, you drink face value. Now the dealer repeats the process until all the cards in the deck are finished.
The person with the most cards rides the bus. (usually we like to try to get a tie for the most cards so more than one person has to ride the bus).
To ride the bus, the dealer gathers all the cards, shuffles and deals out 10 cards face down. The dealer then takes the 10 cards and starts flipping them over.
If he draws either a Jack, Queen, King, or Ace, the person has to drink the amount, depending on the card. Jack is 1, Queen is 2, king is 3, and ace is 4. Now if you flip one of these over, lets say it’s a King, then the person drinks 3 and you take 3 cards off the deck of cards. You flip all the cards over until they are all gone. But remember to take cards off the other pile every time it is one of those cards. When all the cards are gone the person can stop drinking and you play the game again.
