- May 4, 2005Pretty cool, here in the Midwest they play Shake-a-Day
-- it's a heavy rubber cup with dice in it -- 5 I
think -- and basically it's sort of like poker -- the
better your roll, the more likely you are to get a
free drink -- ditto for the wet tabletops and torn
vinyl -- but you forgot the duct tape used to
"attempt" to repair the rips.
Darts are pretty popular here -- but they put the
board back by the bathrooms and use those plastic
tipped darts -- luckily most of the members wear old
"safety"-type glasses anyhow, so not a lot of damage.
