Drinking games

Recently I visited the Dresden State Art Museum (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden). There is interesting and unique collection of globes from the 17th century.  There was one called “Hercules holding a world cup” that especially called my attention because of what it was used for: drinking games! (according to the guide). I find it really interesting how amazed they were at that time about maps and their curiosity about other parts of the world.
