You can tell a lot about how cool a place is by simply getting a feel of the locals’ idea of fun. And people in Estonia certainly have an unique and contagious way of approaching fun and, well, drinking.
Here’s one drinking game example.
Stage 1: Five Estonians drink 10 bottles of vodka. One of them gets chosen to hide in the cupboard. The others have to guess who is in the cupboard. They can all discuss.
Stage 2: Four Estonians drink 4 bottles of vodka and 8 bottles of strong beer. One of them hides in the cupboard, the others continue drinking. By the end of the day they have to guess what happened during the day and why one of them is in the cupboard. They can all discuss.
Stage 3: Three Estonians drink 6 bottles of vodka. One of them hides in the cupboard. The other two have to guess who is in the cupboard. Discussing is allowed.
Stage 4: Two Estonians drink 4 bottles of vodka and 4 bottles of strong beer. One of them hides in the cupboard. The other one has to guess where is the cupboard. Discussing is allowed only with oneself.
Stage 5 (it’s advised to consult your doctor before doing this): One Estonian drinks 2 bottles of vodka and then has to guess if he’s in the cupboard or not. It’s the hardest bit, because there isn’t anyone to discuss with, not even oneself.
