So I like this game it sounds fun BUT it sounds more like a game to be played by teenagers at a slumber party or drink night unfortunately I feel like playing this game at work could cause HR to become involved or upset parents for a youth group only because the shorter the straw the closer your lips become to one another’s not trying to sound rediculous but unfortunately this is the type of world we’re living in where everything gets turned into something it’s not

We have a group of around 40 kids. Is this played with one rubberband? I think many kids would quickly figure out to avoid it and they would never get their straw cut. So just stand around without another objective. Am I missing something?

It is a very good game only thing is that the name of the games should be written as Pass The Rubber band
