One Up One Down

  • The set up of the game is simple, place a few friends around a table and make sure everyone has a beverage of their choice. There is no other equipment required to play.
  • The game begins with the player who knows how to play, i.e. the dealer, explaining the rules to everyone else. 
  • There are only three responses that are allowed, those are: "One Up, One Down", "Two Up", "Two Down" No questions are actually asked, players must simply give one of the three allowable responses when it is their turn. 
  • Play begins with the dealer giving one of the three responses. Play now moves to the left of the dealer.The next player must now give one of the three responses. Only the dealer knows if the answer is correct, because the dealer knows the secret. If the player is correct, then the dealer informs the player that they have chosen wisely and play moves on to the next player. If the player's response is incorrect, they have committed a grievous error and the dealer will inform them that they chosen badly and they must take a drink. Once they have consumed, play moves on to the next player.
  • The secret to the game is that a player's response is correct according to where they have placed their arms. A players response of, "One Up, One Down" is correct when they have one arm on the table and one off the table. A players response of, "Two Up" is correct when they have both arms on the table. A players response of, "Two Down" is correct when they have both arms off of the table.
  • So simple, yet so aggravating when you don't have a clue. Players should catch on if they have any brain capacity and if they are paying attention. Otherwise they will simply go home dazed and confused.
