|The bigger the group, the more interesting the game becomes, but a group of 5-7 is best. One person starts the game by naming themselves "Herman the German". Then, they name the other players "Tokyo Bay Number 1, Tokyo Bay Number 2, Tokyo Bay Number 3, Tokyo Bay Number 4, etc for the number of people playing. They do not have to be named in the order in which they are seated (it's better if they are not because it leads to more screw-ups). Then, Herman the German starts the game by saying:
"Herman the German dropped a bomb on Tokyo Bay Number 2 (or whatever number he chooses), Sir"
Then, Tokyo Bay Number 2 MUST reply "Not I, Sir"
Then, Herman the German MUST reply "Then who, Sir?"
Tokyo Baby Number 2 MUST reply "Number 4 (or whatever number he chooses), Sir"
This continues until someone messes up (usually by forgetting "sir" at the end of forgetting to speak, etc).
Herman the German (HTG): "Herman the German dropped a bomb on Tokyo Bay Number 3, Sir"
#3: "Not I, Sir"
HTG: "Then who, Sir?"
#3: "Number 5, Sir"
#5: "Not I, Sir"
#3: "Then who, Sir?"
#5: "Number 2, Sir?"
#2: "Not I, Sir"
#5: "Then who, Sir?"
#2: "Herman the German, Sir"
HTG: "Not I, Sir"
#2: "Then who, Sir?"
HTG: "Number 4, Sir?"
#4: "Not I, Sir"
People drink whenever they mess up. It is really funny when people call their own number on accident, but sometimes can play it off if they speak both parts correctly.
The part of Herman the German is passed on whenever that person chooses and then the New Herman the German renumbers all the Tokyo Bays, so it becomes funnier because people have to relearn a new number for themselves and often forget to speak. It really is a hilarious game, but works best when played with a group who already has a mild buzz on.
