Equipment for Three Man Dice

  • 2 dice
  • Loads of beer or any other alcohol
  • A table or flat surface
  • A hat (optional) for the Three Man

How to Play Three Man Dice

Everyone is supposed to sit in a circle around the table. If you don’t have a table, sitting on the floor will also suffice. Make sure you mark the area in which the dice are to be rolled.

Are you ready? Then follow the next steps:

  1. Determine the Three Man: Each player rolls the dice turn-by-turn. The first one to get a ’three’ becomes the Three man. He/she will have to wear the hat till the time they remain the Three Man.

  2. The first player: Your Three Man determines who is the first players. He/she rolls the dice again.

  3. What happens next? What happens then depends on the number rolled. Read the next paragraph to get to know more!

  4. A new Three Man Whenever someone rolls a three by combination or one dice showing three, a new Three Man will be chosen by the current Three Man. The hat is then passed on to the player who becomes Three Man.

Rules to play Three Man

So, you’ve already determined the Three Man? And you’ve already chosen the first player? Great! Now you get to know what happens after rolling the dice.

Perform one of the following actions depending upon the results:

  • Three: Three Man drinks (and then chooses another player to be the new Three Man.)
  • Seven: The player to the left of roller drinks.
  • Nine: Everyone drinks.
  • Eleven: The player to the right of roller drinks.
  • Combination of One and Four: The roller becomes the Thumbmaster. He/she can place the thumb on the table at any point of the game and everyone will have to race to place their thumbs on the table. The last player to do so will have to drink. The Thumbmaster changes each time 1 and 4 are rolled by any player.
  • A double: The roller gives the dice to two other players of his/her choice. They roll again. Both have to drink as many times as they rolled. The dice are returned to the original roller and the game continues.

Three Man game variations

Are the previous rules too boring for you? No problem, you can add your own variations to the game very easily!

If you need some inspiration, take a look at the following rules ideas:

  • If you get an eight, then you will have to drink with the hand you are less comfortable with.
  • If you get number one on both dice, then everybody takes a drink.
  • If you get a Five, then you will have to take a drink.
  • If you get numbers one and five on dice, then you become the Nosemaster. You can place a finger on your nose at any time of the game, and everyone else will have to follow the action. The last person to do so will have to drink.
  • If you get a six, then all the players of the opposite sex must drink.
  • If the dice falls off the table, then that player takes a drink.

These are the rules to play the Three Man dice drinking game. Hope you got some awesome ideas, and hope your brains are already working upon some wacky and interesting variations. You can create your own rules and penalties for an even more enjoyable experience.

It is advisable to drink in moderation. Drink responsibly! Do not drink and drive!
