Chess Shot Glass Sets For A Fun Party
There are all kinds of things you can do to add some life to a party. You can get music, live entertainment, movies, great party food, and of course, some alcohol and games. However, there is a way to combine a couple of those elements, namely alcohol and games, into a good time.
While chess may not seem like the first party game that you can think of unless it is a big part of your life, it can become quite the entertainment once it is converted into a drinking game. Some companies have already constructed their own version to add a bit of excitement to the classic board game. And that is why chess shot glass sets are made and sold in several party supply places. Keep reading to learn more about them.
These sets are exactly what they sound like, which is a game of chess played with shot glasses. Most of these sets are made out of glass and come with a glass checkered board. Each glass shot typically has a painting of the different chess pieces, such as kings and bishops, on the front of them to differentiate the pieces. These glasses are then set up on the board like a typical chess game. Each glass piece is then filled with the alcoholic beverage of choice at the party.
The actual gameplay is essentially the same as regular chess. The party twist to it is that when a player loses a piece to the other player, they have to take that piece and drink down the shot. The other way to play is to drink down the shot of the piece that you just captured.
As this goes on, the game becomes a lot more interesting and difficult. The difficulty increases because alcohol greatly hinders mental prowess, and chess relies completely on mental prowess. As each player becomes more inebriated, their ability to make decisions on which pieces to move becomes more "entertaining," which can make the game more apt for a party. This also makes their strategy more interesting to watch because they have to try to outsmart their opponent with their moves at the same time.
The winner is selected the same way that it is in the regular game of chess. That means that once "checkmate" is called on an opponent, that player wins. This is with the exception of the other opponent giving up due to having imbibed too much, causing them to forfeit.
These sets can also be used with other games. They can be used to play checkers, and some even come with other pieces like actual poker chips and checkers.
Now you can see how fun these chess shot glass sets can be at a party. They can easily turn into a barrel of laughs as each player becomes more inebriated and desperately tries to outsmart their opponent in the process. Just as with any kind of drinking game, just make sure to drink responsibly and don't overdo the shots.
