Slap Poker is a simple card/party game for several players. It was “invented” by my friend Ramiro Corbetta and some of his friends. It’s a very physical variant of the famous betting/drinking game “Indian Poker” (er, perhaps not the most sensitive name…)
Each player is dealt a card, face down (that is, you’re not allowed to look at your own card). Then, all players simultaneously put their card on their forehead, such that they can see every card except for their own. The first person to physically slap(!) the player with the highest card value gains a point. The best part is, this might entail slapping yourself, if you only see low cards! Any player who slaps wrong loses a point.
I suggest playing multiple rounds – to a set total, or until the deck is depleted.
Admittedly, slapping each other might be a little too… “confrontational” for some people. The game is best suited for friends, most likely in a party setting. Still, when you’re in the right mood and/or with people you trust, Slap Poker can be a total joy! Highly recommended.
