Does anyone know of an established variation on Russian Roulette using dice or cards that doesn't involve shooting yourself in the head and would be somewhat child friendly?

Thanks :)

    The only thing we can really find similar is something like "spin the bottle" and if it landed on you, you'd be out. – Ant Aug 22 '11 at 11:10
  • I like to play Russian Roulette, but i don't point the gun at me, and i use all eight bullets. And oh yeah i don't call it Russian Roulette – Andrey Aug 22 '11 at 12:47
  • Its called Craps... – Chad Aug 22 '11 at 14:09
  • Is this question on topic? Technically, the game can be played around a table with cards and dice, but "Russian roulette" is really a different animal with a different context. And the user is new. – Tom Au Aug 22 '11 at 14:42
  • @Tom, Russian Roulette is such a brutally simple game that I can't imagine anyone couldn't work out how to non-violently replicate it with a six-sided dice or a deck of cards. I took the "point" of the question to be games with props that recreate the gun-pointing tension and drama of RR. Of course, I could be completely mistaken in this, as I notice my answer isn't getting any upvotes ;) – thesunneversets Aug 22 '11 at 16:55

You can buy chocolate Russian roulette sets, the guns has 7 chocolate bullets filled with liquid chocolate and 1 chocolate bullets filled with hot sauce, these can be great fun.

  • Yum! For similar mostly-delicious results you could use jellybeans. – thesunneversets Aug 22 '11 at 14:09

Not necessarily exactly what you're looking for, but a fun game involving waving a lot of waving around brightly-coloured foam pistols is Ca$h 'n' Gun$.

If you follow the link to the image gallery (underneath the box image), you will see lots of people humorously shooting themselves in the head, Russian Roulette-style. It's what gamers tend to do when they're playing a game with foam gun components, and there's no other honourable way out.

Not sure this would be small-child friendly, but it depends on the precociousness of your children, and certainly it seems like it would be fine for ages about 10 and up.
