A game of sleuthing, winking, "poisoning", and deception. Watchout...


Take a deck of cards and pull out as many cards as people playing. Ensure there is exactly one ace (two if there are over 12 players) in the cards that you pull out. Have all players sit in a circle, shuffle the cards and deal them out. Whoever picks the ace is the "poisoner". The assassin will look around at people who attempt to "poison" players by winking at them. If a player is winked at they must wait ten seconds, gulp a beverage of their choice, and fake a dramatic death to show that they are out. If a player believes they see the poisoner, they must say "Poison Control?! I think ___ is poisoning people!". The player who is called out must flip their card, if it's an ace they lose and must "poison themselves" by sipping a beverage. If it's any card but an ace the accuser must leave the game and "poison" themselves. The game continues until the poisoner is outed or wins by poisoning everyone!
