LSD, tobacco and Nazi drinking games

After playing a Nazi-themed drinking game during an Athletics Union's ski trip in France, London School of Economics students are now facing disciplinary action, according to LSE student newspaper The Beaver. "'Nazi Ring of Fire' involved arranging cards on the table in the shape of a Swastika, and required players to 'Salute the Fuhrer,'" according to the paper. A fight after the game resulted in a Jewish student breaking his nose.
