Drunken Sailor is about the tales from the sea that a rowdy group of sailors have experienced together. Their memories are a bit foggy due to the harsh conditions at sea and on shore.
To jog their memories, the sailors take turns collectively drawing an object from last night's adventure. The drunken sailor, who remembers nothing, has no idea what is being drawn but plays along in order to keep their identity a secret.
Be careful, though! If a sailor draws too much of the object, it may tip off the drunken sailor. Then again, if a sailor draws too little, it may lead others to think that he or she is the drunken sailor.
After two rounds, the voting begins! The sailors win if they can correctly identify the drunkien sailor. The drunken sailor wins if they can stay hidden - or figure out what the object is that everyone is drawing.
