The Pyramid

Players

2 or More

Rules

The cards are dealt in a Large pyramid shape with the formation 6-5-4-3-2-1. Then each player receives 7 cards each. Once all the cards have been dealt 10 seconds is given to allow the players to memorise their cards. Once these 10 seconds are up no one should be looking at their cards.

The cards are turned over one at a time starting at the bottom left to right and working your way upwards always going from left to right. If you think you have that card you shout “yes” if not you say “no”. Once everyone has shouted, each player gets 3 seconds to check if they have that card. If they do, they get to nominate another player to take 1 drink. For each stage in the Pyramid you go up its +1 drink per card. If the player says “yes” and he doesn’t have the card then they must drink 1 drink or more depending what layer of the pyramid you are on. If you have more than 1 you can lay it and times the drinks by the number of cards. e.g. If you have three 7’s on the fourth layer of the pyramid you get to nominate someone to take 12 drinks. 3 cards x 4 drinks.

If you say “no” you must take a drink. Once all the cards have been turned over the player with the most cards left in their hand has lost and has to take a shot. You then re-deal the cards and start again.
