Have fun...pulling the short straw! Drawing straws is a game of chance, a selection method that is used by friends or a group to choose one person to perform a task after none has volunteered for it. In this game, matches replace the straws, all the matches are the exact same length, save one. You can only see the top of all the matches, and draw one. The loser is the one who draws the ONE short straw...match. Also play to randomize teams!
