At the beginning of play, choose a “Chairman.” It doesn't matter how you do it, but the Chairman’s role is a very important one. He decides when the subjective drinks are warranted, and also has the power to “make up” a drink: should the Chariman feel that something deserves a drink (like if something incredibly stupid happens), he can direct everyone to drink for it.
