Dick or No Dick

How to Play: DICK OR NO DICK

Go to the male for female section of the personals on your local Craigslist and refine your search to ads featuring pictures. I recommend setting the age range to 18 to 50, as you are likely to get more people exposing their genitalia within those parameters. 

Once you have your list, the player whose turn it is picks a logline, states their thoughts on whether there will be a dick pic in the ad or not, and then clicks in to see. If the player is right, no drink. If they're wrong, they drink. If you're a guy who's horrified by the sight of other men's wangs, you might be drinking a lot anyway.
