1 long table with covering
6 small bowls or plates
6 covers. 1 for each plate (large bowls, pan lids, boxes - something to completely cover the plate or bowl)
6 nasty foods (see suggestions below)
1 spoon or fork for each player
Number cards - 1 through 6
1 pair of dice (of different colors if possible)
plenty of napkins or wipes
serving spoons (1 for each bowl of icky food)
paper plates or bowls - 1 for each player
Suggested foods - Baby food (the greener and stinkier the better), Edible bugs, Durian (really stinky fruit), Kimchi, Limburger cheese, natto, pickled pig's feet, sardines, gefilte fish, tongue
camera (optional)

1. Place a large serving of nasty food in each bowl and cover so that no one can see the contents.
2. Place a number card in front of each covered dish - 1 through 6.
3. Set the pair of dice on the table.
4. Line up your contestants, hand each one a spoon (or fork) and a plate.
5. Have spit bucket and towels set up in a prominent place.
6. Get your camera ready.

How to Play

1. Players approach the table one by one.
2. Player one rolls a die. The resulting number corresponds to the number in front of the covered food. Reveal the food.
3. Have the player roll a second die. This number corresponds to the "servings" the player must eat. Serve that number of spoonfuls onto their plate.
4. On "go" the player has exactly 1 minute to eat all the food on his/her plate. They must swallow and show the audience/judge their empty mouth to receive a point for their team.
5. At any point should the player spit out their food they are done and do not receive any points. If the player fails to finish in time, the team does not get a point. If the player refuses to eat the food, the team LOSES a point (yes, a team can go into negative points).
6. Play as many rounds as you have contestants, keeping score as you go.


1. Do more than 6 foods - just use numbered slips of paper to represent the foods and pick the numbers out of a hat.
2. Blindfold the contestants. Make sure you get some stinky foods.
3. Play person against person. Start with the first food and work your way down to the last. The leader will roll one die for each plate of food to see how many servings each player must down. Each player gets a point for each round they finish.


1. Make sure to refill any empty bowls after a player has been served, and then cover the bowl again.
2. Take lots of pictures.
3. Cheer players on. They will need it.
