22. A Game of Kings Gone Way Too Far
This story from Reddit user Spartan2842 takes a strange twist during a seemingly innocent drinking game with new friends. “Was out in San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference (GDC) a few years back. Stayed in a hostel with a whole bunch of my classmates since it was much cheaper than a hotel. First few nights we were hanging out in the common room, playing drinking games and meeting people from around the world. However, there was this older Asian woman who would float from group to group trying to join in and steal a beer or two. No one really complained at first. On the third night, five of my buddies and these four Aussies decide to play Kings. Well, this lady joined and we tried to be nice and teach her the game. She pulled a king, which is the rule master.
“We explained the rule and gave her some examples. Must have your drink in hand at all times, laugh a certain way, no eye contact, etc. She takes a few seconds to think and looks directly at me and says ‘Take off your pants!’ I just sit in disbelief and my buddy right away starts laughing. One of the Aussie chicks explains it doesn’t work that way. The woman then starts yelling other things at me. ‘Show me your butt! Let me see c*ck! Give me a dance!’ At this point I am trying to laugh it off, but I’m super embarrassed too. We ended up kicking her out of the game and then she was kicked out of the hostel the next day because she was found to be sneaking into other people’s rooms at night.”
