Beer Darts?

We drove out to my cousins house for the 4th of July weekend. She hosted a nice BarBQ Saturday night. We got to meet a lot of her friends, eat some good food, drink some beers, and chit chat. It was an all round good time.

What made the night even better? Beer Darts.

Beer Darts has to be the most idiotic game ever conceived, but I was hooked from the get go. Imagine two chairs set up about 50 paces apart facing each other; Four chairs if four people are playing, two on each side. You place an unopened beer can next to your chair on the ground and you're handed two darts. Your object is to throw your darts into the players beer can across from you. If you hit the can, they have to drink the beer down to the hole the dart made. The trick is to hit the can at the very bottom.

At the end, empty cans are counted and the person/team with the most empties loses, or wins depending on how you look at it.

I'm pretty sure we single handedly raised Anheuser-Busch's stock because of all the beer consumed that night. It didn't help that I was sitting across from the Beer Darts "ice man". He was popping beers right and left. I must of chugged.... well I don't even want to think about it.

If this sounds interesting here are some "official" rules.
