Russian Roulette begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the giant Bunk Bar WHEEL to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

Hosted by B. Frayn Masters + Jason Rouse with music by Sex Life DJ Bobby

At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive 50 bucks and some other cool prizes, like bragging rights for life! THIS IS NEW: A lucky audience member will win prizes as well!
