New Years is of course a night of drunken debaucheries. With this in mind, we will most likely play drinking games to get us there. I have a few favorite drinking games. Most of which are better with beer, but a couple can be played with mixed drinks. I do recommend beer though, unless you want to be completely sloshed! Remember to always keep an eye on your drink, you don’t want any roofies put in like in the Hangover!
This game requires immense bladder control and stamina. It is a great warm-up before planning to go out or to start a party and it is guaranteed to give you a buzz.
This game is all about drinking. There are not really any rules. The object is to take a shot worth of beer every minute for an entire hour. It sounds pretty easy but believe me, it isn’t. At the end of the hour you will usually have had six beers. In college we used to play this game all the time. We had different CD’s made up of 60 songs each 1 minute each. Every time the song changed we took a shot of beer. If you have the time, make the CD’s. It is well worth it!
Just like ping-pong, this can be played either in singles or doubles.
You will need: players, beer, and a ping-pong table (or any rectangular table preferably the shape of a ping-pong table).
Each player fills a cup with beer and places it one paddle-width from the end of the table, in the center (or a paddle-width from the side for doubles). Hitting your opponent’s cup earns you a point and requires the opponent to sip (5 sips to a cup). If you get the ball in your opponent’s cup, you are awarded 5 points and the opponent must drink whatever remains in the cup (excluding the ball).
No player may touch the ball prior to its hitting the table or a cup; if the ball hits a cup before hitting the table, it remains in play even after a single bounce on the table. A player may attempt to save a point after the ball hits a cup by returning it (provided of course the ball has bounced no more than one time). Multiple hits count only as a single point (exception: a ball hitting a cup and then bouncing inside the cup, or inside the partner’s cup, counts as a 5-point inside-the-cup “poofter”).
You will need: beer, a long table, plastic cups, and at least 6 people.
Teams: You divide everyone up evenly into two teams. The maximum per team should be about 5 or 6 people. If you have more than 10 or 12 people, create several different teams and have a tournament.
The two teams line up on opposite sides of the table. Everyone gets a cup and a beer. Fill the bottom of your cup with about two shots beer.
The people at the far end of the table starts. Someone says go, and you chug the cup with beer. When you are finished, you have to flip your cup before the next person can go.
You flip your cup by placing it on the edge of the table, right side up, half of the cup off the table. The you put your fingers under the part hanging off the table, and flip the cup so that it is upside down on the table. This gets harder as the game goes on and you get more drunk.
When you have completed this, the next person goes, and does the same thing. The first team to have all players drink and flip their cups wins. They then get one point. You can play to whatever number you want to.
I’ve noticed with Flip Cup that the more I drink the better I get. Maybe my motor skills happen to be better drunk!
Never Have I Ever
This is a great game for a group of close friends or people who really like to share hints of their dark pasts. Only supplies are people with enquiring minds, and beer. You probably won’t get drunk playing this, but it’s a great ice-breaker for a party. This is definitely not a game that you want to play with siblings or parents.
Everyone sits around around a table, or on the floor if you so desire. One person goes first by making a TRUE statement that begins with “Never have I ever….” For example, “Never have I ever been to Disneyland.” Then, if any other player HAS DONE what the person said, they simply drink.
As the game progresses, the statements tend to get more personal and explicit. But the game only works when people are honest. However, if somebody drinks on an “Never have I ever..,” no explanation is necessary. For example, if someone says, “Never have I ever had sex with an inflatable doll,” and someone ends up drinking to it, no explanation is needed, just a drink of affirmation.
