A drinking game
for someone with a well-stocked kitchen
and liquor cabinet.
Play goes as follows:
Cards are dealt face up one at a time to each player until a king comes up. The person who is dealt the first king must pick an available liquor. The person who is dealt the second king must pick an available mixer. The third person to be dealt a king selects a glass, and pours a drink containing the previously named liquor and mixer. The person who is dealt the final king must drink the beverage.
Not a competitive game, Four Kings relies on a trustworthy dealer, and players with sane yet quirky ideas as to what might go in a drink. The ruling on whether beer is a mixer is left to the participants. Play continues into all have wandered off in a stupor, or until bodily fluids are suggested as a mixer and no one objects.
