    Group of people start a drinking game and a sober person/nondrinker is invited to join without all other players knowing they don't drink.

    Should they play?

    Heard some mixed stuff on this but mainly that they shouldn't because a lot of drinking games lead to confessions which the drinkers will forget and being sober is unfair as they will remember. Being a nondrinker in a drinking game isn't half as fun though and unless they're ********s then they're probably just joining in to be social, not for future blackmailing uses.

    Opinions?

    If you're so wasted that nobody can even remember what happened at predrinks, how do you make it out the house?

    There's no problem with non-drinkers playing drinking games with soft drinks. That's like saying people who have a good memory when drunk shouldn't be allowed to play drinking games in case they remember.

    I'd tell the others you don't drink before starting. I don't think anyone would mind if you joined in.
