Via spikedmath.comLet’s start off with the classic. What you need: A drink in your hand – it could be a bottle of beer, a glass of scotch-coke, or maybe a tequila shot. Mechanics: Each player in the game takes turns saying something they’ve never done. For example: “I have never gone skinny dipping.” And those who have done the act, have to drink whatever they’re holding. Tip-ins: Basically, you have to trust that your friends will be honest during the game and take a drink if they’ve done your I never example. Remember: liars go to hell! Yes, I realize I sound like a grade 2 student. Here’s something to make things more interesting: If no one drinks after a player has said his or her I never because no one else has done it, then the one who gave the example must be the one to drink. Sounds fair, yes?
Via vegaschatter.comThis might sound like much more fun if you do it at a bar – like Cable Car – but it’s also pretty exciting when you play at home. So when–uhm, if–you get drunk, you won’t risk crashing your car while driving back to your place. What you need: A table (preferably a ping-pong table), 14 beer cups, a few bottles of beer, ping-pong balls. Mechanics: It’s simple. You divide your group into two teams (Note: this game is best suited for four players). Each team gets six cups, fill it with beer, and arrange them in a triangular form on each of the table’s edges. The remaining two cups are filled with water for cleaning purposes. Each player of each team gets a chance to shoot a ball into their opponents’ cup per round. Every time a team’s cup is shot, a player of the team needs to consume the beer inside it. The first team to finish the other’s six cups wins. Whenever the balls get too dirty, that’s when the water-filled cups come in. Tip-ins: This is much more fun if you mix tequila with the beer. Just saying.
Via telegraph.co.ukSounds brutal, eh? Relax, this one’s actually pretty chill! What you need: Cards, shot glasses filled with tequila or any other type of alcohol. Mechanics: It’s simple, really. You play poker. But instead of gambling with money, you bet shots. So if someone bets two shots on their hand, and you think your hand is better, you call those two shots, putting four shots on the line. Heck, why not even raise three more shots to possibly put ten shots on the line? Whenever you fold, you take how many shots you had already called prior before giving up. Oh, and big (two shots) and small blinds (one shot) matter in this game too!
Via imgarcade.comYes, this game is about taking shots, and no, it’s not as easy as it sounds. What you need: Shots. Loads of them. A stereo. An iPod with the song “Shots”. Mechanics: First, let’s write down the chorus of LMFAO’s song, shall we? “Shots shots shots shots shots shots Shots shots shots shots shots Shots shots shots shots shots.” It’s simple. You and your friends listen to the song. On the table in front of you, there has to be numerous shot glasses filled up with alcohol. When the song hits the chorus section, you take a shot every time the word “shot” is muttered. For those counting, yes, that means taking 16 shots in less than 30 seconds. Have fun! (Editor’s note: post-game, you most likely won’t, so don’t do it).
