There are plenty of drinking games that can be fun to get wasted to, but this one takes on a whole new level of fun. It is called Kottabos, and can be a great way for families and friends to bond.
You play the game similar to spuirtung, and when you throw the dribble of wine from your glass into the middle of the circle you name an object of affection.
It seems like the game is catching on! Maybe it is nothing like drinking a whole glass of beer or wine straight to the head, but who cares, it still seems like the drinkers are having fun trying to knock over the plate in the middle of the circle with the dregs of their wine. Hopefully no-one has a white carpet while playing this! In fact, the best way to do it is to take a tea-saucer or other small disk and pound a small stick or spike into the ground and lean the plate against the spike, but make sure you sit close enough in a group that if you overthrow the booze it will land on your friends or create a nice stinky mound of alcohol to dig around in later on when you are on your hands and knees looking for the saucer.
And here is a quick history of wine vlog that presents the concept much more clearly, as it’s all Greek to me!
