Bar Games - 6th Grade Style

Hanging at Brass Monkey with my girl last week. We found ourselves on the way to being drunk, without really having that much fun. Absent mindedly, I am folding a napkin into this little "fortune teller" square game. I had no idea, I've stumbled upon the best bar game ever!

In no time, the bartender takes notice. Next thing I know, he is offering up suggestions and starts egging us on to get a little risque with our dares. Together the three of us come up with the following:

- Compliment someone
- Crank call from someone's cell
- Group Choice
- Pinch a stranger's tush
- Kiss someone
- Walk up to a random and pretend you know them
- Shot time
- Take a photo of a body part with someone's phone

There are almost no words for the amount of fun that was had. First one up. The bartender, he had to compliment someone - thankfully that someone was me. He liked the way my eyes matched my top. Then it was my friend's turn. She had to pretend she knew someone. By the time it was my turn to pinch someone's tush, all the folks around us were begging to go next.

It turned into quite a rambunxious evening... Who would have thought.

Although the game needs to end once eveyone memorizes what number goes with a particular dare. (You'd be surprised how ofter the kissing one is picked.)


1. Square off a regular piece of paper by folding one corner of it over to the adjacent side so it makes a triangle, then cutting off the small rectangle of paper that remains outside the triangle.

2. Fold the two opposite ends of the triangle together to form a smaller triangle, then open the paper up. The paper now has diagonal creases from corner to corner.

3. Turn the paper so it looks like a diamond, then take each end of the diamond and fold it into the center. Once all four corners are folded in, your paper will have become a smaller square.

4. Flip your square over. Fold each corner in to the central point again. Now it's an even smaller square.

5. Fold your square in half, then unfold and fold in half the other direction.

6. Unfold and pull the four ends together, making a diamondlike shape. Pick up each of the four square flaps and put your fingers inside.

7. Now it's time to make the folded paper a fortune teller. Write on the outer four diamonds and the inner eight triangles, using colors and numbers for your friends to choose.

8. Last, write fun fortunes on the inside of the folds. Let the fortune telling begin!

MATH acutally. Mansion, Apartment, Trailor or House. I always found the trailor a bit better than MASH's shack
