As always we are quite busy searching the web for everything related to alcohol and boozing. But sometimes we’re lucky and people find us with tips. This weekend we got an e-mail from Jaryd Haelwaeters, who is the proud owner of a website called Drinks and Drinking Games. He provided us with a nice guest post that explains three easy drinking games, for which we thank him. Also be sure to check out his website for more ways to get shitfaced with your friends.
How to make a bad day good or a good day better? We all have them, boring days, having no clue what to do. It may sound old-fashioned with current technology, but playing drinking games with friends can save you of a lonely night behind the smartphone or computer. Time is spent more useful in the presence of other people and the obligatory alcohol makes for a nice atmosphere. With these games, you can make a fool of yourself without damaging your conscience. Embarrassing moments will be automatically blocked by the consumption of alcohol.
If you organize the party yourself you don’t want to spend too much time reading the rules. Therefore, we have chosen a series of simple drinking games whithout cards, which don’t have complicated rules.
THE NAME GAME
An entertaining ice-breaker game, where you don’t need props, except for a big amount of booze. The game starts with one player starting to say the name of a famous person. (This can be someone that is known within your group of friends, or someone with an international reputation.) For example, someone starts by saying the name of Michael Jackson. Now it’s up to the the following player to find someone whose name begins with the first letter of the last name. A possibility in this situation is Jackie Chan. If someone finds a name where the first and last name starts with the same letter, the game direction changes. A player has to take a penalty drink, when he can’t immediatly come up with a name. The rising intoxication level ensures that the game gets harder as the game progresses.
Are you a mathematical talent? It’s a fairly simple game where basic mathematical skills are required. Each player takes turns counting, the first player starts by saying “1”, second player says “2” and so on. When someone hits a number divisible by 7, he has to say “BUZZ”. When you don’t do this or you shout “BUZZ” at the wrong time, you have to take a penalty drink. The challenge is to achieve a very high score. The worse your math skills, the higher the level of intoxication.
Drinking games for 2 people without cards don’t have to be boring. The Power Hour game is a great way to start a party, suitable for 2 persons or large groups. Someone makes a composition of songs that are each played for 1 minute. Every time a new song starts, the participants have to take a drink. Each player is given a shot glass at the start of the game and every minute you take a shot of beer. An average of 6 to 7 pints is drunk. Quitters will be punished with an agreed penalty. Premium choices are performing a dance, doing the dishes or treating your friends with free drinks.
These are some fun games that you can play when you lack inspiration. Anyone can play these games, without having to know complicated rules. They can be played for entertainment as ice breakers or for a nostalgic evening among friends. Have fun!
