Some drinking games out there are just meant to get you as drunk as possible as fast as possible (beyond just chugging pure grain alcohol, I suppose). Bowties is a bit more casual about it. A little more upscale. Players have a card that they “wear” like a bowtie with a rule on it. They can’t see it, but it has a rule for when they drink on it. The object is to be able to guess what your card says, based on when you’re told to drink. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the Kickstarter:
Bowties is a drinking card game you can play at parties, bars, or just about any social event. While friends and guests mingle, eat, or enjoy other festivities, the rules are always in effect. Each player is given a card with a unique rule that indicates when they have to drink, but the catch is that no one knows what their own rule is!
The campaign is up and running now. They’re about 1/3 of the way to their goal with still 29 days left to go.
