  1. Get a deck of cards and gather your friends and sit around a table or other flat surface with your drinks.
  2. Shuffle the cards and then flip on over and ask the player sitting to your left “Higher or Lower?” Then flip the card over from the top of the deck.
  3. If the guess is correct, the player can choose another player to drink player. Or he can gamble and if they guess correctly again then they can give out 3 drinks.
  4. If the guess is incorrect, the player takes a drink and the turn passes to the next player.
  5. The game continues until the dealer has everyone and then the cards swap dealer and are reshuffled.
