I have never played this game but I do know how we are when we get drunk or a good buzz. I REALLY don't think this a game we will ever play.

the game you describe is called "nails" which is a tame version of stump. Stump involves flipping the hammer in the air, grabbing the handle and slamming the hammer down on an opponents nail in one fluid motion. If your nail is hit by another player, you must "consume" - the word drink is not allowed, neither are questions. If you hurt yourself you must consume, woodchips and sparks are socials. Also each player must have a unique "stump name" that is decided by his or her stump elders. this name is usually comical or downright strange. When a player is eliminated, ie: the head of his nail is hammered completely into the stump, everyone does a social and says "his/her name was (stump name. Other rules vary according to subcultures and reigions. This is how we play in amherst

We play this game all the time and we are usually smashed.... you'd have to be an idiot to hurt yourself enough to go to the hospital.

I played this game a few weeks back during the Penn State-Ohio State tailgate. To my recollection (which is pretty fuzzy after an 8 hour tailgate), I didn't see one person get hurt from throwing the hammer or from any nails that squirted off the stump. I give a lot of credit to the guys who brought the stumps and nails (must have had at least 5 pounds of nails), because we played continuously from 1 to 8 PM (game time). The rules, as I remember, were pretty much the same as the others posted here. Great game!!

Here's another set of rules that won't involve trips to the ER unless you've completed 5 straight games... -Each player throws the hammer upward from the end, and after letting it complete one rotation in the air, catches the handle and carries the hammer down to hit someone else's nail. -If the hammer is dropped or the player misses the stump, the thrower chugs out of the circle. -If the thrower hits another player's nail, that player must drink. -If the thrower hits their own nail or the stump, they must drink. -When one's nail is driven down into the stump, they have one chance to pry it out using the back of the hammer. If they fail, they must chug out. -Try the 'Quarter Rule': place a quarter on the stump. The first player to knock it off must chug out. -Note: on throwing the hammer and catching it, the downward motion of the hammer must not be interrupted. If it is, the thrower loses their turn and must drink. Lots of chugging, less trying to catch a hammer behind your back...

this is one of the worst games ever,it is stupid for a bunch of people who are drinking to throw a metal object in the air and attempt to hammer nails. can we say trip to the emergency room?
