Players sit in a circle around a shuffled deck of cards. Each player chooses a card face down and then all players turn their cards over at once. The highest card becomes the Master for that round. The lowest card becomes the Slave. The slave's punishment is based on the suit of their low card:
* Hearts, the slave must have a chug of their drink (or pay the master a dollar).
* Spades, the slave loses one article of clothing.
* Clubs, the master asks a question of the slave and the slave must answer truthfully.
* Diamonds, the master gives the slave a dare.
In the case of a tie for high card, the slave must do their punishment for all masters. In the case of a tie for low card, all slaves perform the punishment on their cards, over-seen by the master. When all cards are tied, all players are slaves to the person on their left, and all players are masters to the person on their left.
If a person refuses their punishment, they are removed from the circle as a "bitch" and placed behind the master in question as a "get out of jail free card" to be used when one wishes to refuse a punishment. "I'm not gonna do that but my bitch will".
If a slave runs out of booze, cash, or clothes, their punishment is automatically converted to a dare.
When all slaves have “performed” for their masters, the next round begins.
