We took turns reading off the rules, but this one was the best:

Pretend you are drunk in Japan

The card told us to “Pretend you are drunk and in Japan”.

So we did.

The next card we drew told us to “head North until we heard sirens”. We walked a few miles without hearing any until someone arbitrarily made a siren noise and we chose to draw the next card. The next card told us to go to a bar and drink Whiskey–so we did.
