Once a card is drawn it is left face up on the table.

The game lasts until the last king is drawn from the card circle.

If the circle of cards is broken in the process of taking a card, then the drawing player has to down his/her drink.

An example for this would be: Everyone needs to chug their drinks with the left hand. Or everyone needs to moan while drinking. You get the idea.
