Requirements to Play:
- A Pair of Dice
- Booze of choice
- Minimum 2 players (traditionally played with 3 players but can be played with as many as you like)
To begin the game, players should sit in a circle and determine who will go first. This can be done by any method agreed upon by the group, such as rock-paper-scissors or a simple coin flip. The player who goes first will roll the dice and the game will proceed in a clockwise direction.
The Rules of Three-Man Dice
If a player rolls a 3 and a 4, they become the “3 Man.” This player will remain the 3 Man until another player rolls a 3 and a 4. Whenever a player rolls a 3 or a 4, they must take a drink.
If a player rolls doubles, they may choose any other player to take a drink. The number on the dice indicates how many drinks the chosen player must take, except double 6 which we will explain later.
If a player rolls an 11, they must pass the dice to the player on their right.
If a player rolls a 9, they can choose to split the roll between themselves and another player. For example, if the player rolls a 9, they drink 4 drinks and make another player take 5 drinks but they can choose to take 1 drink and get another player to drink 8!
If a player rolls a 10, they can make any other player “Thumb Master.” The Thumb Master will be able to place their thumb on the table at any time, and all other players must follow suit. The last player to put their thumb on the table must take a drink.
If a player rolls a 5 and a 2, they may make a “Rule.” A rule is a custom rule that all players must follow until the end of the game. For example, a player could make a rule that whenever someone says the word “drink,” they must take a drink. If a player breaks a rule, they must take a drink.
If a player rolls a 6 and a 1, they become the “Chopstick Master.” Whenever they want, they can place two fingers on the table like chopsticks. The last player to follow suit must take a drink.
If a player rolls an 8, they must choose another player to become their “Mate.” Whenever one of them drinks, the other must also drink.
If a player rolls a 12, everyone must drink.
The 3 Man dice drinking game is a fun and entertaining way to spend an evening with friends. By following the simple rules outlined above, players can enjoy a few drinks and a lot of laughs.
Have fun and enjoy being drunk and wavy!
