The game requires several players, alcohol and a pack of cards.
After the initial "initiation" rounds, the players are left with four dealt cards and then enter The Square Of Death - which is ALWAYS marked by all players making an outline of a square with both hands then mimicking the cutting of their own throats.
The square of death is made of a 4 x 4 square of cards and each card carries a differing level of drink penalty or nomination.
There are no winners....just very drunken players.
JFK's head exploded when he thought back to the game of Square of Death he had played the previous night.
