Russian roullete is a game played with a revolver. A single round is placed in the six shot revolver which means the player has a 1 in 6 chance of the revolver releasing the shot. The revolver's cylinder is often spun around to start the game conditions over. It also ups the risk of being killed. Most stories about the beginning of russian rouletter are legends. In one story, 19th century prisoners were forced to play while the guards watched and bet on the results. In another story, they say that desperate soldiers in the Russian army would play. Either way Russian Roulette is a daring game that shouldn't be taken lightly.
