Care to share your favourite drinking games?

Asked by RareDenver (13163points) July 15th, 2012

My all time favourite has to be Drink While You Think. It’s genius is it’s simplicity, you all sit round the table and have to say famous peoples names or characters, with the first letter of their first name starting with the previous persons first letter from their last name. So I might start with Donald Trump and the person to my right would say Tracy Chapman and the next person would say Carla Bruni etc. a double letter like Bugs Bunny changes direction. You just have to drink your drink whilst thinking of the name you are going to give. Harder than it sounds.

I was introduced to a new one recently at a party, you divide the room into two halves, one half Roxanne and the other half Red Light, you then put on the song Roxanne by The Police and whenever they sing your words you have to take a drink, they say Roxanne and Red Light a lot! Its even worse on one of the live versions!

I never really understood the point of drinking games. I don’t need any competition or punishment to get drunk… However, I was pretty good at flip cup in college. And I just learned a game that the French kinder play; you take turns throwing a bottle cap to try to dislodge the bottle cap resting on top of your friend’s bottle of beer. if you succeed in knocking it off, your friend has to take a drink.

How about keg bottle. You sit round a table and going clockwise round the group count up from 1 to however far you can get. What makes it tricky is if there is a 5 in the number or a multiple of 5 you say ‘keg’ and if there is a 7 or a multiple of 7 you must say ‘bottle’. Getting it wrong means you must have a drink. So it would start 1, 2, 3, 4, keg, 6, bottle , 8, 9, keg, 11, 12, 13, bottle, keg, 16, bottle, 18, 19, keg and so on.

I played a drinking game yesterday and am paying for it today.

Go to outdoor music party, drink waaay to much wine, turn your scarf into a turban and dance with friends and strangers kissing lots of people and wildly ripping turban off head to use as dancing prop.

“Drinking game
There is a drinking game associated with the film Withnail and I. The game consists of keeping up, drink for drink, with each alcoholic substance consumed by Withnail over the course of the film. All told, Withnail is shown drinking roughly nine and a half glasses of red wine, half a pint of cider, one shot of lighter fluid (vinegar or overproof rum are common substitutes), two and a half shots of gin, six glasses of sherry, thirteen glasses of whisky and half a pint of ale. It should be noted that this quantity of alcohol, consumed over the course of the film, would be fatal.”see wiki

Here is mine:
1. Get liquor and shot glass.
2. Fill shot glass with liquor.
3. Drink liquor.
4. Repeat steps 1 – 3 as necessary.

@flutherother What happens at 35?

flutherother's avatar

@Yetanotheruser You say keg bottle and for 55 you say keg keg. It does gets a bit tricky especially if you’ve been drinking.

“Hi, Bob”

You watch a marathon of The Bob Newhart Show whenever it airs and drink whenever a character says “Hi, Bob”

@Blueroses A classic.

I had an older girlfriend who used to do that one.

“Nucular”—I used to play this whenever “Dubya” (former pres G. “W” Bush) gave a televised speech. Take a drink whenever he pronounced “nuclear” as “nucular.

We did that whenever Obama said “Hope” or “Change”.

Took a toast and cheered, then imbibed and howled with laughter.

The pandering was so blatant, so obvious. We couldn’t help ourselves.

Besides, we generate our own hope and initiate our own change.
