Version 1.6, by Sarah Mulholland and many contributors

Comments and suggestions are welcome, so please e-mail me if you have any ideas. (I know some of the directions are out-of-date.)

This game can be played with either alcohol (Chianti is recommended), or jello or ginger ale for those of you who don't favour drinking.
If you're playing this game with alcohol, don't do anything stupid like operate heavy machinery.

Now, onto the game...
