Cardinal Puff Rules

Cardinal Puff Rules - the chuggernauts

Before continuing to read these Cardinal Puff rules you should know that only official Cardinals are supposed to know how to play. So the way most people play the game is by learning from other Cardinals and figuring it out themselves. To figure out how to play from other means like reading this upcoming rule guide could be considered an offense of the highest order. Hell, I’m probably forsaking myself from the clan by publishing this guide.

What is This Game?

This game is the following of a sacred ritual in order to become a Cardinal and initiate the ritual unto others. Basically you’ll see someone do some very specific actions and you will have to try and copy it. If you make any mistakes the Cardinal will let you know and you’ll have to drink. The only way to become a Cardinal is to follow the actions exactly. The Cardinal will let you know how you did.

Cardinal Puff Rules

At any point an approved Cardinal can perform the ritual. Then anyone who wants entry into the clan must try and mimic the ritual exactly. The Cardinal will let people know who passed and who failed. Those who passed are allowed to be Cardinals and can officially perform the ritual for others.

The Ritual

To kick it off the Cardinal declares  “I drink to cardinal puff, for the first time tonight.”

  • With 1 finger and thumb of the left hand, grab the top of a glass of beer.
  • Take 1 sip.
  • Place it back on table with 1 knock.
  • Tap the top of the table with 1 finger; Left then right.
  • Tap the bottom of the table with 1 finger; Right then left.
  • Stand up and sit down 1 time.

Then declare “I drink to cardinal Puff-Puff for the second time tonight.”

  • With 2 fingers and a thumb of the left hand, grab the MIDDLE of the glass.
  • Take 2 sips.
  • Place it back on table with 2 knocks.
  • Tap the top of table with 2 fingers. Left, then right, then left, then right.
  • Tap the bottom of table with 2 fingers. Right, then left, then right, then left.
  • Stand up and sit down 2 times.

Then declare “I drink to cardinal Puff-Puff-Puff, for the third and final time tonight.”

  • With 3 fingers and thumb of the left hand, grab the BOTTOM of the glass.
  • Take 3 sips, you must completely finish your drink by the third sip.
  • Place it back on table with 3 knocks.
  • Tap the top of table with 3 fingers; Left, then right, then left, then right, then left, then right.
  • Tap the bottom with 3 fingers, Right, then left, then right, then left, then right, then left.
  • Stand up and sit down 3 times.

Declare “ONCE A CARDINAL”

  • With left hand, rotate wrist so that you can grasp glass “backwards” with thumb at bottom of glass and the pinky at the top.
  • Pick up glass, rotate wrist back, setting glass upside down.

Finally declare “ALWAYS A CARDINAL”

  • With t hand, rotate wrist so that you can grasp glass “backwards” with thumb at bottom of glass and the pinky at the top.
  • Just like before, pick up the glass and flip it over so it’s back the right way.

 

That it. If you’ve managed to follow these Cardinal Puff rules to a tee and complete the ritual then congratulations. You are now an official Cardinal.
