Add Some Hash to Your Beer Running
We've been pretty interested in the concept of beer running lately, though we admittedly spend more time focused on the beer part than the running part. Last night we stumbled across an article at Offtrackplanet about Hashing, a game that brings a new level to the beer run. All you need is some friends, a good area for running, some booze - and maybe a flashlight.
The rules look pretty simple:
One person (or a small group of people) are selected as hares and given a head start to create a trail using either chalk, flour, or a chalk-flour combo. While the hares are running ahead, the rest of the hash gets as sloppy as possible in a short time. Then, already sporting a solid buzz, they take off in attempt to catch the hares by following the symbols the hares have left behind.
We will say we think they're missing an opportunity to add some spice to the chase if they gave about 80% of the booze to the hares. It weighs them down a bit sure, but it definitely adds motivation for the rest of the pack.
Check out the rest of the story - including the history of the hash, the symbols used by the hares, and the importance of hashing nicknames - at What the F*ck is Hashing?
