To start, the dealer gives a card to each player face down. The cards represent a player's dinner party drink and can be either poison or wine. The only rule is that at least one poison and one wine must be dealt out each round and only the dealer knows where these cards are located.
Players then take it turns to each choose whether to turn over their card or to swap their card with another player. Once play has returned to the dealer, any cards that remain face down are revealed and the players fates decided. Wine means you survive and poison means you are eliminated from the game.
As each round progresses, you take turns to deal to the dwindling number of players until one remains and wins. As you can never really know what your card is, play becomes about social deduction. What feuds and pacts have developed and how do you use those to your advantage. This makes the game different depending on the people that are playing and makes what is an incredibly simple premise into such a complex mystery.
