Genre(s) Drinking 3+ 0 varies

Three Man (also referred to as Mr. Three or Hat Man) is a drinking game played with two dice.[1] It can be played with at least 3 people but it works better with around 5.[2] The objective is to avoid drinking.

## Rules

### Steps of play

Select the first "Three Man"
```This player will remain the "Three man" until they roll a 1-2 or 3-(any).
Once they have, the next player to roll a 1-2 or 3-(any) becomes the new three man.
```
Three man rolls dice
Drink are dispensed based on the pips shown on dice
If no drinks are dispensed, turn ends and dice are passed to next player

### Roll results

1-1
```Create any rule.  If rule is broken during game, the infringing player drinks[3]
```
2-2 3-3 4-4 5-5 6-6 (doubles)
```Give away the amount of drinks that matches the total amount of pips shoing on dice[3]
ex. 5-5 means you would give away 10 drinks.  These can be split up between multiple players if desired
```
1-2 3-(any number)
```The "Three man" drinks. If roll was 3-3, the "Three man" drinks twice.[3]
```

```Person to the left of roller drinks. If 3-4, "Three man" also drinks.[3]
```
5-4 6-3 (total of 9)
```Every person drinks.  If 6-3, "Three man" drinks twice.[3]
```
6-5 (total of 11)
```Person to the right of roller drinks.[3]
```

## Variations

There are several variations to the game:

1. Doubles: according to this variation, whoever rolls doubles (Player A) can "give" them to another player (Player B), who then rolls both the dice to see how many times he/she must drink. If B rolls doubles, the dice are returned to A, who must roll and drink twice as many times as the value that he/she rolls (e.g., if A rolls 3 and 2, A must drink 10 times).[1] In another variation, a player who rolls doubles three times in any turn has the right to make a rule.[2]
2. Party Foul: If the dice falls off the table, the player drinks for each fallen die.[3] When a "Sloppy Jalopy" rule is applied, the player with fallen dice is loudly admonished as a "Sloppy Jalopy" and immediately becomes the new Three Man.[4]
3. Any roll of 1:
1. 1 and 1 follow the usual rules for passing off doubles.
2. 1 and 2 makes the roller Three Man.
3. 1 and 3 makes the Three Man drink (as with any roll of a 3).
4. 1 and 4 thumb to table or floor: last player to place his/her thumb must drink.
5. 1 and 5 turn ends.
6. When a 1 and 6 is rolled, the player to the left drinks.[3]
4. Bathroom penalty: If someone is in the bathroom when it is his turn to roll, he must take 1 drink for every 5 seconds he is late returning.[3]

5. Opposite Sex: Any variation of the "6" is classified as "opposite sex" in which all players in the game of the opposite sex to the roller must drink
