The bag from a box of wine is known as a "goon"

Goon of Fortune is an Australian drinking game between any number of individual people. The name of the game is a spoof on the TV show Wheel of Fortune.[1]

A number of goonsacks are pegged around the outside of a Hills Hoist rotary washing line, and players sit underneath it at the edges. One player spins the hoist, and when the clothesline comes to rest any player underneath a bag must drink an amount of wine agreed upon before the commencement of the spin. Players may not touch the clothesline, and penalties for breaking the rules vary.[2]
