    I came up with this game a couple of years ago and try to do at least one iteration with a group of friends on every trip. Ideal group size is 2 to 8, but we've gone with as many as 15, which can be chaotic. Give it a try, if you dare!!

    BillGates' Las Vegas Shitshow


    OVERVIEW:

    This Las Vegas Shitshow casino pub crawl requires foolish participants to start at one end of the strip/downtown and stop for a drink at each casino along the way. The goal is to finish the Shitshow without dying, going broke, or getting arrested. Penalty shots will be assessed for various violations.


    RULES:
    1. At each stop, every participant must buy in for $20 at a bar top video poker machine to ensure expedited drink delivery. Play your choice of game at the quarter level with max credits to qualify, $1.25 per hand.
    2. Order beer, tip bartender $1. Stronger or additional drinks are optional but may affect chances of success.
    3. If someone in the group doubles up to $40 or better, everyone cashes out, redeems remaining balance, and takes drink to go. Otherwise, if everyone busts, that stop is over.
    4. Following either a double-up or a bust, the group then walks to the next stop.
    5. Once in a while, find some food and drink water.
    6. Take lots of pictures.
    7. Encourage strangers to join the Shitshow.
    8. If a midget is spotted nearby, a photo is mandatory.
    9. Visits to Wynn and Encore are prohibited as they do not comp drinks for bar video poker players. Dicks!
    10. Transportation to/from the start/finish casino stops is open to any option. Or, the group can opt to start in the middle of the list, arrange transportation from one end to the other, then resume the list, ending up back in the middle.
    11. There is no time limit per stop, nor overall.
    12. If someone in the group hits a royal flush, 25% of the payout shall be evenly and immediately distributed amongst all participants.

    We have done something very similar to this a few times over the years. It is always a lot of fun and is a must try for people who have been to Vegas a bunch of times and are looking for something different to do for the day.

    Love it. I've started something like this, started at Mandalay Bay, did not get past Mandalay Bay because I got absolutely sloshed. LOL
