    Have each person write the name of a person on their card. There are some rules to this:
    • The person or character chosen must be famous or well-known. No vanity references like a person's father or a high school friend.
    • The person or character can either be real or fictitious. Examples could be "King Kong", "Oprah Winfrey", or "Dr. Seuss".

    Choose a person to start the game. This person asks the group "yes or no" questions to figure out who they are (what their card says).
    • If they guess their character correctly, everyone else but them must finish their drinks.
    • If they guess their character incorrectly, they would need to finish their drink alone.
