An Austrian Drinking Game
I've heard of drinking games that involve cards, dice, and quarters. But a hammer and nails? Now that didn't seem safe. Yet here I was in the back corner of Lech's buzzy apres ski bar, Schneggarei, learning a game the locals call Nails or Hammerschlagen. A group gathers around a waist-high log and everyone takes a nail. The goal is to use one hand and hammer your nail all the way into the log using the small, thin edge of the hammer. The loser buys the group a round of drinks. Let's just say, I still need some practice!
