Sip, Sip, Shot Game Rules
The straightforward nature of Sip, Sip, Shot ensures everyone can join in on the fun. The rules are as follows:
- Players sit in a circle while one player stands—this player is the “picker.”
- The picker walks around the outside of the circle lightly tapping each player’s head and saying “Sip.”
- When the picker taps a player’s head and says “Shot,” that person must take a shot, stand up and run in the opposite direction around the circle.
- Meanwhile, the picker runs in their original direction around the circle.
- Both players must reach the empty spot in the circle and sit down. The one remaining standing becomes the new picker.
