A dangerous and deadly game in which a revolver or six shooter has one ( or more) bullets put into the chamber. The chamber is then spun around and snapped into position, leaving no idea as to the bullet's exact position. Two or more men then take turns putting the gun to their head and pulling the trigger, hoping it falls on an empty chamber. Others will commonly bet on this sort of game. Russian roulette may also appear in the form of a similar game in which many glasses full of some substance are placed down. All but one are filled with water or alcohol or something, the last containing deadly poison. Men take turns choosing and picking glasses to drink until one dies. (I think this is also called russian roulette)

A game where a revolver with one bullet is placed and spun. Then you take turns putting the gun to your head and pull the trigger. If it's empty, you pass it on until someone dies or becomes extremely injured.

this isn't a definition, it's just a (disturbingly) humorous tale. It's documented in a recent Darwin Awards - collections of stories where people, either through accidental self-castration or accidental self-homicide, remove themselves from the gene pool - that a police officer was recently a victim of this risky game of chance. however, instead of using a revolver, with only one chamber in six loaded, he was using a semi-automatic pistol, having loaded one round into the magazine and pulled the slide back. some of you can already tell what happened, but let me explain for the rest: with a semi-automatic pistol, the top round in the magazine is automatically (hence a semi-AUTOMATIC pistol) inserted into the chamber. instead of a 1 in 6 chance of shooting himself, the cop had a 1 in 1 chance......


note: i'm not sure if he was intoxicated at the time. also, for more intriguing stories, search with your fav search engine for 'darwin awards'
