All players are dealt 4 cards, the dealer or winner of the last round goest first. A player's turn begins when the player to their right draws their final card from the Draw Pile. At the beginning of their turn, a player MUST play any matching Alcohol Card pairs. After alcohol pairs are play (if any), the player has 2 options: they may play Action Cards or draw a card to end their turn. They can play as many Action Cards as they wish.
Once they draw their final card from the draw pile, their turn is over. Players may also trade in extra Alcohol Card pairs for 3 new cards after their needed pair is made. "Stop Action" cards cannot be used on this type of move, and this move does not end a player's turn. A player can still draw a single card from the draw pile.
Types of Cards
There are 4 types of Alcohol Cards:
Beer, Wine, Whiskey, and Tequila.
If a player has a matching pair of Alcohol Cards in their hand at the start of their turn, they must put them in their Goat Pile. Matching pairs after fulfilling needed pairs may be traded in for 3 new cards from the Draw Pile.
These cards have instructions on how to use them. Action Cards can only be used during a player's turn (after playing Alcohol Cards and before collecting their final card from the Draw Pile), with the exception of Stop Action Cards which may be used at any time during any player's turn. However, Stop Action Cards cannot be used to stop alcohol pairs.
Types of Piles
Each player will display pairs of Alcohol Cards collected in front of them. Cards in the Goat Pile cannot be stolen with Action Cards.

It's possible to win the game in the first hand, with a bit of luck and a little strategy.

Optional Drinking Rules
Drink whatever beverage you have in front of you every time an opposing player plays a pair of Alcohol Cards, either as a need pair or as an exchange for Draw Cards.
If you're feeling crazy (and your genetic makeup allows for it), opposing players will drink to match played Alcohol Cards.
