There is a top to spin, which has three faces with a arrow to appoint a person who has to drink next.

Your party guests and you, will take turn to spin a top to continue drinking with fun.

It was a very popular activity in the past, but faded over time.  It has been revived in Kochi prefecture back in 1970’s and became a very popular drinking game to play in Kochi prefecture soon after.  

In Kochi prefecture, there has been a song of “drunkenness” (Berobero no Uta) often played at a party.  This has been combined with Beku-Hai game, calling a next appointed person a “Handsom” or “Just a dirty-minded man” making everyone laugh at the party in Kochi.  

 

People from Kochi prefecture love having happy drinks with fun, so Bekuhai set is a must!
