This is a drinking game based on the sport of cricket. Its easy to play though, so you don’t need any knowledge of the sport to be able to play.
The basis of the game is to count up silently as far as possible without anyone making a mistake. Actions are performed for each number and the game is played in silence. Players sit in a circle and count around in the direction announced at the start.
The starting player calls “To my left” or “To my right” and then performs the action for the number 1 (explained below) and then play moves round in the appropriate direction. Rules for actions to be followed are:
Play continues until a mistake is made. Whoever makes the mistake must drink three fingers. Play then begins with that player starting again from 1.
If anyone says a number out loud or whispers to help another player, they must drink the three fingers penalty.
