Punishments for party games?

Everyone likes to have a bit of fun when it comes to group games. Sometimes when you need to do something torturous or embarrassing if you lose, because it makes the game more serious and possibly exciting. Perhaps the loser needs to do push-ups or eat something. But where do you usually draw the line?

What happens if the punishment is eating something real nasty and has potential of throwing up? Does the loser 'man-up' and do it or do you turn to something else? It's not fun if there's a party-pooper, but sometimes the punishments are pretty ridiculous.

That sounds like it crosses the line of being fun, to being mean spiritted. And too much like something on Jackass.
Thanks for the memories, RFD.
Good-bye.

I don't see a problem. You're not being forced to play the game, so if you can't stomach the loss and what comes with it, simply don't play.

The way I usually guage these situations is if I lost, would I be willing to eat or do the exact same thing.
If the answer is even a hesitant yes, probably the line should be there

Sometimes, I try to set up two types of punishment for these instances so it lets the loser feel more confortable in case the person finds one punishment too harsh.

Fun and games are fine as long as it's not doing something ridiculous where someone can get hurt physically or psychologically. Peer pressure can really destroy some people.

Usually the loser has to chug back his beer.

But that makes him the winner.

See, that's the problem I find in some of the group events I attend. Everyone likes to have fun, but nobody likes to be a party pooper. And that is where peer pressure gets the best of you. Some suggest you shouldn't play a game if you can't take the loss, but sometimes there is no choice. If everyone at the party is playing, there's no way you can say 'I'll watch'. If you do, you're already a party-pooper.

I'm just curious what you guys do in a situation like this. Fortunately for me, I didn't lose that time, so I didn't have to eat that nasty stuff, but I felt really bad for the loser, because he was a really good guy. In the end, he couldn't even finish it and the whole crowd just told him to stop before he got sick. And that was night.

Maybe it's all about the group of people you hang out with. From my perspective, there is usually one or two people who dominate every group and all rules are made up by them. If you can't agree or get along with the dominant figures in the group, then chances are, you probably can't get along with the group. Thoughts?

It's just the type of friends that you have, you probably won't hang out with them so much if they keep doing things you don't enjoy. If you really feel uncomfortable, then don't. If your friends start doing drugs and you don't want to, should you do it anyways?

We used to have a lot of fun untill one of my friends decided to hang his girlfriend upside down so that she can chug the beer, somehow she slipped from his grip and broke her nose and a chunk of her hair came out - suffice to say that was the end of having party games.
