# Moose (drinking game)

A game of Moose

Moose is a drinking game that uses an ice cube tray, a coin, and a table. It is similar to the game of Quarters.

## Set-up

Before game play can start, the ice cube tray has to be labeled. On the left column of the ice cube tray will be labeled the "give" column. The right column is labeled the "take" column. The rows are labeled from bottom to top, starting with 1. The sequence towards the top is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (as large as the ice tray is). A drinking vessel, referred to as the "moose cup," is filled with an arbitrary quantity of an alcoholic beverage and placed at the end of the tray with the "moose" basin. A coin, such as an American quarter, is needed for game play. Likewise, a table, preferably round, will be used.

## Gameplay

To start a game of Moose, players will need a standard alcoholic drink, such as beer or a mixed drink. Sit evenly around the table and decide who should start the game. The player who starts bounces the coin off the table and into one of the ice cube basins. If the coin does not land in a basin, the player must take a drink. If the coin lands in an ice cube basin, the player must heed the directions on the tray. Left side of the tray is a "give" while the right side of the tray is a "take" or "drink yourself". For example, if the coin landed in the 3rd row of the ice cube tray on the left side it is a "Give 3". The player points to someone and tells them to drink 3 times. An alternative method is pointing to 3 people and telling them to all drink once. If the coin lands on the right side of the tray in the second row, the player drinks twice. If the coin lands in the "moose" cup/basin, all players put their hands above their ears to look like a moose, and yell "MOOSE!". The last player to yell "MOOSE!" must drink the contents of the moose cup or finish their drink in hand. Game play rotates to the left and the game continues until all players decide to quit.
