The Bar Game Guide for Thailand

Games people play in the Beer Bars
around Thailand

A fun introduction to the Bar Game Guide in Thailand

Enter any bar in Thailand and you'll in all probability be invited to participate in a selection of games not seen anywhere else in the world. Bar girls love to entice tourists to stop for a drink and to play a few quick and relatively easy games with them. Relativity only extends to your ability to grasp the rules in the shortest time frame possible. The girls are the true masters of any game here.

In order to break the barrier between western men and Thai women, most beer bars in Thailand have a number of games which serve a duel purpose - One is to unite different cultures and another (more importantly) is for the Thai women to try and gain free drinks and the chance of more things to come - if you get my drift.

Playing games in a bar are a great form of entertainment while beers or whatever other drink you fancy, keep flowing. You will no doubt, at various intervals, be invited to buy a drink or drinks for the lady you befriend. This could develop from your kind generosity or perhaps a gesture to a lack of skill on your part. However, you need to be attentive as this could lead to buying drinks for the whole bar.

The bar game seen in the photo above requires your ability to simply transfer the single wooden square with the red circle through the opening contained therein. You may shift the other wooden shapes around,  but you may not pick any up or remove any from the box. No drinks need be forfeited to whoever wins.

Let The Bar Games Begin

One of the first bar games I was introduced to was not what you would call a game at all. It seemed more like a medium on which to test your strength. There was this enormous tree stump perched atop a short wooden structure of sorts.

Embedded in the stump were hundreds of spent nails. Now the idea here was to take hold of a hammer which the young lady kindly provides and while taking turns with a single strike each time, try to bury a five inch nail into the stump.

Easy enough said, but without due practice, this is not as simple as it appears. You may be required to buy the lady a drink should she beat you in this game.

Thai Bar Games

The bar game called The Tower is simply a strategy of removing small wooden blocks from anywhere on the structure and then placing it on top. Looks easy until the whole steeple topples. The first one that causes the collapse, loses. Two or more persons can play by taking turns in removing one block at a time.

The bar game called Connect 4 is a fairly common form of entertainment in most beer bars and homes around the world and is basically self explanatory. All it requires is for you to connect four round disks of one of only two colours collectively in a row in order for you to win, though this is easier said than done.

Thai Bar Games

The bar game Shut the Door, also known as Flippet, is a contest of chance played by rolling two dice together and then flicking a numbered wooden wedge over. Each wedge has a single number 1 to 9. The first person to flip all nine numbers, wins the game.

You are allowed to flip any wedge on which the fall of the dice shows. You would be entitled to flip both the singular numbers or the combination thereof. In other words, should you throw a three and a four, you can flip both these numbers or the total which would be seven. However, if you keep getting numbers already disposed of, then you'll have to keep trying until all the wedges are flipped. The loser here is required to buy the winner a drink.
