Why Russians rule or How I came to cope with fear of bears

In the evergoing quest to explore my roots of origin I came to a topic which is my personal favorite. Recriational drinking in Russian culture. So while ago I came across a russian drinking game. Being the people that practicly invented recriational drinking, Russians ought to have good drinking games.

Among the multiple types of drinking games one stood out as a glowing posture of a drunken kozak. The game is know under multiple names some of which are : "Brown bear come,Enter the Dragon,Tiger Has come"

Below is the detailed description of the game that I ripped from some place(shhhh).
Big Phat Disclaimer: The game is a russian drinking games, these people are crazy.. I am no kidding. Russian are born with 4 livers, so they have x4 livers to punish in their lifetime. Mere mortals should take this into account.

Drinking game "Brown bear has come" (Enter the Dragon).
Required Equipment:
  • Thick Wooden Table - Wooden because they make a good sound when hit with dumb drunken head.
  • ALOT of alcohol (preferably vodka)
  • Money.
  • One person who can handle LEAST liquor is a "game leader" - He remains Game lader until he passes out. After he passes out it doesnt really matter.
Game Flow
  • Put on table shotglasses by number of players.
  • Fill shotglasses with vodka.
  • Every player puts on table agreed amount of money (say a dollar).
  • Game leader says "Brown bear has come" (Dragon has entered), all players drink vodka from their shotglasses and hide under the table (from dragon or tiger).
  • Game lader says "Brown bear has gone" (Dragon has gone).
  • Everyone gets from under the table, puts another dollar on table and fills his glass with vodka.
  • Then game leader says "Tiger came.. etc. etc. etc. Game leader drinks every other round.
  • The objective of the game is to find out who will take all money from table. If you cannot get up on your feet from under the table, you lose. If you run out of Vodka, Game leader or whoever's feet are trembling the least buys more with money collected from the table.
  • Last man standing collects all the money remaining and by default is hosting next game (buying initial supply of alcohol).

Well Thats it for now boys and girls and remmember practice makes perfect,especialy when it comes to stupidity.
