Russian Roulette is a drinking game based upon the infamous, deadly game of Russian Roulette. The exceptions being the gun and bullet are replaced. In this case, the 'gun' is in actuality a plate of six shot glasses, representing the chamber of a revolver, and the bullet is one shot of clear vodka, straight. The empty 'chambers' are instead filled with water. Primarily played in a group setting, each player can have their own 'gun', or take turns from the same one. After selecting which 'chamber' you will start with, you go clockwise in a fashion similar to that of an actual revolver. After any shot you take of water, you place the empty glass back on the plate and say: "Click." If you get the shot with vodka, after you place the glass down, you say: "Bang." The 'chambers' can be switched if you desire, having the 'bullet' be the one shot with water, and the 'empty chambers' contain vodka instead.
