Bloody knuckles is a two player game
usually played by people during extreme boredom
, or by the less intelligent
among us for fun. The game requires some kind of coin
and two people (with at least one hand
). The first person to go flicks the coin so it spins on it's side. The other player must touch it without causing it to fall on the heads or tails
side. Then the person who spun the coin tries touching it. This continues until the coin falls.
Example: The first person spins it, the second person touches it, then the first person touches it. The first person is safe since they touched it without the coin falling
. Now, if the coin falls before the second person can touch it again, the second person loses
. The second person must touch the coin before it falls. However, if when they touch it, it falls, they lose anyway.
Once someone loses, he
must push his or her fist
flat against the table top so that the knuckles
that connect your fingers
to your palm
are facing forward. The winner
takes the coin, and while keeping the coin flat on the table, flicks it (so it's not like the first time when he or she wanted it to spin on its side). The goal is for the coin to hit the loser's exposed knuckles with enough force to cause bleeding. Once this is done, the winner spins the coin again, and a new round starts. The overall loser is whoever quits first due to excessive boredom or pain.
Most coins can be used. Nickels
hurt the most because of their sharp
, and pennies
er and hurt less, but are usually either too heavy or too small.
