Thirsty Straws Game

Instructions: In groups of four, choose the order in which each person will drink.  Thirsty Straws is a relay race to see who finishes first. The object of the game is to be the first team to drink the entire liter of water — with the requirement that each member of the team can only drink once. The catch is that if each person does not drink his/her share, the last person is left to finish off whatever is left.  This is usually an extremely difficult task and usually hilarious to watch.Note: This game may not be the most sanitary of games.  As a cleaner alternative, consider a relay using multiple bottles of water, in which the next person can drink when the person finishes his or her one bottle.
