Top 5 Drinking Games

If you’re having a party and want to entertain your guests, and are willing to let your guests crash on your couch, then play some drinking games. As a recent college graduate I am well versed in the art of drinking games and would like to give you my list of the top 5 drinking games.

1. Beer Pong / Beirut

Beer Pong

This is a classic drinking game started in the 1960’s. In this game there are two teams of two on opposites of a long table. Each team will have 6 or 10 cups setup in a triangle formation, all one third filled with beer.  Each team takes turns throwing a ping pong ball at the other team’s cups. If a ball goes in the cup, the opposite team must drink the contents. A team wins when they hit the last cup of the opposite team.

Those are the basic rules, but you should always ask what the house rules are before starting a game. Many people have adjusted, changed or added to the rules over the years, so it’s always best to make sure you’re on the same page if you want to win.

2. Baseball

There are again two players on a team, but the teams take turns drinking and throwing in this game. There are four cups lined up spaced out from one each other, each one further from the throwing team than the previous. The first cup is ¼ full, the second ½ and so on until the fourth and final cup is full. The game consists of nine innings of three outs each. Each person on the batting team takes turns throwing a ping pong ball into the cups. When they hit the opposing team must drink everything in that cup. If the batting team misses that counts as out. You keep score with amount of runs. You only score a run when a “base runner” is advanced past the plate, just like baseball. After nine innings the team with the most runs wins.

3. Flip Cup

In this game two teams of players of equal size line up on the opposite side of a table or counter from each other. Each person starts with a cup face up with a small amount of beer in it. To start the game two players on opposite teams cheers with each other then drink the beer in their cup. Once they have finished what’s in their cup, they attempt to flip the cup from right  side up to upside down using one hand. The trick is to place the cup a little off the edge of the table, and then gently flip it. After the first person flips their cup to the right side, the next person on the team drinks what’s in their cup and then flips it. This continues until the last person on the team has flipped their cup. First team to flip all of their cups wins.

4. Chandeliers

This is my personal favorite game. This game can be played either with quarters, smaller glasses and liquor or ping pong balls, larger cups, and beer/liquor. All of the people playing gather around in a circle with a cup of what they’re drinking in front of them. Each of the contestants also adds an amount of their liquor to a pitcher in the center. All of the players then go around bouncing a quarter, or ping pong ball. If the quarter goes into someone else’s cup, that person has to drink; if the quarter goes into their own cup, they get to pick who drinks. If it goes into the center, the players race to finish their drink, and the loser must drink the contents of the pitcher in the center. Everyone is a winner.

5. Kings or King’s Cup

This game has a lot less action then the rest, but is still quite entertaining. To setup the game you layout a deck of cards, face down, in a circle with no gaps between the cards. Each person goes around and takes a card, and performs the rule that corresponds with that card. Every house has different rules for each card, so it’s best to just look up rules you would like to use. Some examples are, girls drink, guys drink, you drink, you pick someone to drink, and waterfall. The game is done when all the cards have been picked up.

 

This is just a short list of some of the games that can be played at a party. In all of these games lots of good beer is almost a requirement. Just remember to drink responsibly, have a DD, don’t drive, etc. and you’re sure to have a great time.

3. Holy Batcave, Batman!

Come into the Down Under while we visit this man cave based in Australia. The owner took the “cave” part seriously – as the walls are made out of a faux rock siding – because of his affinity for the Batman series. A full projection screen lines the front wall, with two rows of movie theatre-style seating for guests. Come on though, who wouldn’t love a Batcave like this?
