10 Drinking Games That Are Still Fun (Slideshow)

10 Drinking Games That Are Still Fun (Slideshow)

Harken back to the halcyon days of college with these ten boozy games

Pyramid

You’ll need: A deck of cards, a drink

Where to play: Uncomfortable family gathering

Next time you’re at a tense holiday get together, whip out a deck of cards before anyone can say “Benghazi”. Pyramid requires a lot of concentration but very little skill, so everyone will be too busy focusing and drinking to rattle off reasons your degree in studio art is a waste of money.

Flip Cup

You’ll need: An even number of people, plastic cups filled 1/3 full of beer

Play when: You find yourself straining to make conversation with new buddies at a bar

Look, making friends is hard when you’re a grown up, so harken back to the halcyon days of college, where the most popular kid was the one best at flipping a plastic cup. You’re honestly not chugging that much beer, and flipping a cup with a finger is silly, yet difficult, a good way to loosen up and laugh until you find a commonality.

King’s Cup

You’ll need: one deck of cards, large cup for the “King’s Cup”, drinks

Play with: Your college buddies

There’s something nostalgic about a game where you punish a bad draw with drinks of alcohol and each card has a secret code. This, the patriarch of drinking games, combines the rules of several others on the list and can get you pretty tipsy. It’s best played only with people who’ve seen you at your worst.

Quarters

You’ll need: A lot of quarters and a glass, drinks.

Play with: Your siblings

Got stuck at the kid’s table, which now has a median age of 25, again? No worries. Mom’s got glasses, and everyone’s old enough to drink. Turn Passover into a party. This game requires just enough skill to stoke those old sibling rivalries, but not so much the loser loses his matzo.

Never Have I Ever

You’ll need: A group of friends who don’t mind over sharing, drinks.

Where to play: A bachelorette party where not all the guests know each other

Introducing your college roommate to your workplace bestie for the first time? Did Amber call at the last minute to say she’s bringing her weird cousin along? Is your bachelorette party quickly devolving into sober conversation about a sale at Marshall’s? Play this, quick. It’s a great way to find out how admirably deranged strangers are and a good way to get some dirt on people you thought you knew.

President

You’ll need: a deck of cards, drinks

Play with: Coworkers

This card game is about power, espionage, and ultimate control. In other words, it’s just like your office, but the losers get drunk, which is way better than fired. It’s a fun send up of the maneuvering that goes on at every 9-5, or perhaps your chance to get back at Kim, who you know is talking smack to your boss.

Beer Pong

You’ll need: Plastic cups, ping pong ball, table, beer

Perfect for: Birthday party!

Okay, there is seriously nothing special about your thirtieth birthday. You can vote, drink, rent a car, what do you have to look forward to now? Botox? But a beer pong birthday party is a throwback to a simpler time of dive bars and poor judgment. You’re old enough now to seem ironic and not just like an overgrown dudebro.

The Name Game

You’ll need: Drinks

Play when: You’re meeting your significant other’s friends for the first time

Meeting your new love’s friends for the first time is terrible even if they’re awesome. It’s like a job interview except it’s usually pretty boozy, so the chances you’ll embarrass yourself are even higher. This game is easy and gets funnier if players are terrible at it. Perfect for hanging with people you’re trying to act like you don’t desperately want to impress.

Bull…Stuff

You’ll need: A deck of cards, drinks

Play with: Your significant other

It’s weird how you do everything with your partner: grocery shopping, house cleaning, dog grooming, whatever, but you go drinking with your buddies. Next time you have a night in, skip the Netflix and pull out the booze and cards instead. This game is all about lying; it’ll be fun to see if you can pick out each other’s tells.

Liar’s Dice

You’ll need: Dice, a cup, drinks

Play with: Your parents

So your parents are in town. You’ve taken them to your city’s famous landmarks; you ate dinner at that place they saw on the Food Network. Now what? It might seem weird to break out the dice and play a drinking game with your folks, but you’re all grown ups now, and this is another game based on deception. It’ll be fun to see how well you can read each other.


Top 10 Drinking Games

As we’re nearing the end of the school year, we’re getting antsy for all the end-of-year parties and formals in the next few weeks so, for this week, in lieu of a serious Top 10 list (is that an oxymoron?) we’ve opted for a countdown of top drinking games. See mixology on page 11 for drink recipes to play the games with. And, oh yeah — shout out to Sallie’s frat boy friends (and that random pre-frosh) for all their extremely helpful, extremely inebriated input.

Comparable to when cavemen discovered fire, Pong is the fire of every college student’s life. It’s not just a game, but more of a way of life. From quaint community colleges to Ivy League schools, everyone knows Pong. Since the game is so widely played, the alcohol variations are endless! You can play beer pong, wine (go for Andre — it’s way cheaper) pong, vodka pong (not for the first time drinkers or freshmen), tequila pong or (see below) Cornell-related or Cornell sports-related variations of pong. What also separates pong from the rest of the (six-)pack is strategy and patterns you have to know. When I play with my partner (we’re a professional team and our shirts are in the mail), we will switch sides when one of us is getting rusty and missing one-too-may-shots (Shots! Shots! Shots!). Especially when playing with a frat boy, they will ramble off the different ways to arrange the cups to have an optimal chance of getting the ball in the cup. Patterns include crack house, pyramid, diamond, the eye and more. Like traveling to a foreign country, every frat will have different lingo for the exact same set up. It’s confusing (especially after playing three rounds of tequila pong), but pong players are helpful and will always be willing to drunkenly shout at you “make it a quadrangle!”

Although sadly this year’s incredibly epic basketball season is over, it was — as a certain Sports Editor incessantly reminded everyone — really, really epic. So epic that AKB actually codified a drinking game to go along with it. Actually, it wasn’t so much a drinking game as a “drink then justify that shot by pretending it’s part of a game.” (Of course, after we lost it has become much easier to justify all those shots, either while reminiscing about the good times or while still mourning our losses.) Obviously most of the drinking games on this list can be adapted to Sweet Sixteen variations, but if you’re hardcore you probably don’t want a game with rules take a hint from AKB and and just figure out “games” that involve justifying your shots after you’ve taken them. Check out her March 11 article for details.

Easily described as the rich man’s drinking game, Quarters will have you dragging your piggy bank across campus. To play, all you have to do is bounce a quarter off a table to have it land in a shot glass or cup for the ambitious. Mr. Moneybags who is throwing the quarter is called the “shooter.” The shooter either will bounce the quarter into an empty or filled glass. Each round begins with two shooters until one of them gets it in and then passes it to their left. (Watch the madness ensue if you are already drunk playing this game. “No your other left! Make the “L’s!”). There are different ways to play this one as well, including one with a “community cup” that is surrounded by each player’s drinking cup to form a ring that looks like a flower. Its geeky cousin would be the game Spiderwebs, which is played with a pong ball in lieu of quarters. Its Canadian cousin would be the game Moose, played with quarters but being bounced into an ice tray (while you’re waiting for jello shots).

Kings is the drinking game of royalty. Each drinker selects a card on their turn and everyone must comply with the rules of that card. Again, different people play with different meanings for each card, but I generally use Ace is Waterfall (everyone drinks while the person who drew the card is drinking), two is you, three is me, four is floor, etc. (you can e-mail us for the rest if you’re curious). The suit cards get more interesting: Jack means a brief game of “Never Have I Ever,” one who draws a queen becomes the question master and the king makes a rule. Rules can be anything and this is where kings games get crazy. One of my personal favorite rules is called “Mushroom” and that’s when you put the card on top of the beer can or cup in the middle and after several cards, it begins to form a giant pile until it collapses and then you must drink. (One time we went the entire game without dropping any cards. We felt a great sense of accomplishment that evening.)

Remember learning Rock, Paper, Scissors as a child? It became a way to solve all of life’s little problems. (Who gets the front seat of the car? I’ll rock, paper, scissors you for it!) Introducing, the All Grown Up (strange show) version that captures the forever entertaining nature of Rock, Paper, Scissors. In Ro Sham Bo, you count to Ro (1), Sham (2), Bo (3) and either hold out your hand in a rock, paper or scissor. You know the drill, rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper and paper beats rock. (No, you can’t use gun! That’s a cheap move!) If you lose, you drink. Then you just repeat until you can’t remember where your hands are.

And you thought driving that Rainbow Road level was difficult while playing sober! Fun to play if you just want to sit around your dorm/house instead of hitting a frat or a bar, Mario Kart is the go-to game. Now that the Nintendo Wii has an actual steering wheel, you will spend countless hours drinking and watching your friends pretend to be stepping on a gas pedal and falling over when they drive off the road. Other racing games that can be substituted if you don’t own Mario Kart (bummer) or you want to change up the characters (because Mario can only laugh so many times before I throw a Koopa Shell at him!) are Diddy Kong Racing (old school N64 classic) or Crash Team Racing (Sony Playstation).

We’ve all been there. You’re at a frat and you hear the lyrics “I hoped off the plane at LAX” blasting through the speakers. Suddenly, you see their pupil’s dilate, they get sweaty with excitement and then their hands are up in the air like they just don’t care. You then hear that blood-curtailing cry of a frat boy: “IT’S MILEY! TURN IT UP!” Frat boys love Miley Cyrus (they’ll deny it, don’t even bother asking him) so they’ll be fully on-board for this game. You go on Youtube (or watch it on loop on the Disney Channel for those lucky people who have cable), find any episode of Hannah Montana and get ready to get very drunk very fast. The rules are simple: every time a laugh track plays for something that isn’t funny, you drink. Unless you find the adorable things tweens do hysterical, you’ll be downing your drink faster than you can say “Nodding my head like yeah!”

We promised one of Sallie’s fratty friends (heehee, that sounds funny) that this would make it onto the list (even though it is more of a guy’s game than a girl’s game). The idea with this game is that, once you’re already fairly drunk, you try to see if you can finish spanking the monkey before you pass out. If so, you take a shot if not, well, you’re already passed out so it’s a little irrelevant. To spice things up a bit, add NyQuil in the mix and see if you can still yank one out.

Oops. We really intended intended to make it to 10, but maybe we shouldn’t have started drinking so early in the writing process, right Allie? Allie? Allie, where are you? Dammit, did you leave me here alone again? I’m going to finish your beer, then. RLD

With Slope Day just around the corner, I’m sure many of you are looking forward to celebrating the last day of classes in the way Cornell students have been doing it for years: Spending the day on the slope, enjoying a great concert and of course, drinking some alcohol.

Patterns include crack house, pyramid, diamond, the eye and more. Like traveling to a foreign country, every frat will have different lingo for the exact same set up. It’s confusing (especially after playing three rounds of tequila pong), but pong players are helpful and will always be willing to drunkenly shout at you “make it a quadrangle!”

Although sadly this year’s incredibly epic basketball season is over, it was — as a certain Sports Editor incessantly reminded everyone — really, really epic. So epic that AKB actually codified a drinking game to go along with it. Actually, it wasn’t so much a drinking game as a “drink then justify that shot by pretending it’s part of a game.” (Of course, after we lost it has become much easier to justify all those shots, either while reminiscing about the good times or while still mourning our losses.) Obviously most of the drinking games on this list can be adapted to Sweet Sixteen variations, but if you’re hardcore you probably don’t want a game with rules take a hint from AKB and and just figure out “games” that involve justifying your shots after you’ve taken them. Check out her March 11 article for details.

Easily described as the rich man’s drinking game, Quarters will have you dragging your piggy bank across campus. To play, all you have to do is bounce a quarter off a table to have it land in a shot glass or cup for the ambitious. Mr. Moneybags who is throwing the quarter is called the “shooter.” The shooter either will bounce the quarter into an empty or filled glass. Each round begins with two shooters until one of them gets it in and then passes it to their left. (Watch the madness ensue if you are already drunk playing this game. “No your other left! Make the “L’s!”). There are different ways to play this one as well, including one with a “community cup” that is surrounded by each player’s drinking cup to form a ring that looks like a flower. Its geeky cousin would be the game Spiderwebs, which is played with a pong ball in lieu of quarters. Its Canadian cousin would be the game Moose, played with quarters but being bounced into an ice tray (while you’re waiting for jello shots).

Kings is the drinking game of royalty. Each drinker selects a card on their turn and everyone must comply with the rules of that card. Again, different people play with different meanings for each card, but I generally use Ace is Waterfall (everyone drinks while the person who drew the card is drinking), two is you, three is me, four is floor, etc. (you can e-mail us for the rest if you’re curious). The suit cards get more interesting: Jack means a brief game of “Never Have I Ever,” one who draws a queen becomes the question master and the king makes a rule. Rules can be anything and this is where kings games get crazy. One of my personal favorite rules is called “Mushroom” and that’s when you put the card on top of the beer can or cup in the middle and after several cards, it begins to form a giant pile until it collapses and then you must drink. (One time we went the entire game without dropping any cards. We felt a great sense of accomplishment that evening.)

Remember learning Rock, Paper, Scissors as a child? It became a way to solve all of life’s little problems. (Who gets the front seat of the car? I’ll rock, paper, scissors you for it!) Introducing, the All Grown Up (strange show) version that captures the forever entertaining nature of Rock, Paper, Scissors. In Ro Sham Bo, you count to Ro (1), Sham (2), Bo (3) and either hold out your hand in a rock, paper or scissor. You know the drill, rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper and paper beats rock. (No, you can’t use gun! That’s a cheap move!) If you lose, you drink. Then you just repeat until you can’t remember where your hands are.

And you thought driving that Rainbow Road level was difficult while playing sober! Fun to play if you just want to sit around your dorm/house instead of hitting a frat or a bar, Mario Kart is the go-to game. Now that the Nintendo Wii has an actual steering wheel, you will spend countless hours drinking and watching your friends pretend to be stepping on a gas pedal and falling over when they drive off the road. Other racing games that can be substituted if you don’t own Mario Kart (bummer) or you want to change up the characters (because Mario can only laugh so many times before I throw a Koopa Shell at him!) are Diddy Kong Racing (old school N64 classic) or Crash Team Racing (Sony Playstation).

We’ve all been there. You’re at a frat and you hear the lyrics “I hoped off the plane at LAX” blasting through the speakers. Suddenly, you see their pupil’s dilate, they get sweaty with excitement and then their hands are up in the air like they just don’t care. You then hear that blood-curtailing cry of a frat boy: “IT’S MILEY! TURN IT UP!” Frat boys love Miley Cyrus (they’ll deny it, don’t even bother asking him) so they’ll be fully on-board for this game. You go on Youtube (or watch it on loop on the Disney Channel for those lucky people who have cable), find any episode of Hannah Montana and get ready to get very drunk very fast. The rules are simple: every time a laugh track plays for something that isn’t funny, you drink. Unless you find the adorable things tweens do hysterical, you’ll be downing your drink faster than you can say “Nodding my head like yeah!”

We promised one of Sallie’s fratty friends (heehee, that sounds funny) that this would make it onto the list (even though it is more of a guy’s game than a girl’s game). The idea with this game is that, once you’re already fairly drunk, you try to see if you can finish spanking the monkey before you pass out. If so, you take a shot if not, well, you’re already passed out so it’s a little irrelevant. To spice things up a bit, add NyQuil in the mix and see if you can still yank one out.

Oops. We really intended intended to make it to 10, but maybe we shouldn’t have started drinking so early in the writing process, right Allie? Allie? Allie, where are you? Dammit, did you leave me here alone again? I’m going to finish your beer, then. RLD

With Slope Day just around the corner, I’m sure many of you are looking forward to celebrating the last day of classes in the way Cornell students have been doing it for years: Spending the day on the slope, enjoying a great concert and of course, drinking some alcohol. Surveys show that two-thirds of Americans consume alcoholic beverages, and while alcohol is often a part of celebrations and can even be beneficial to your health in modest quantities, there are many harmful consequences of alcohol intoxication.


Top 10 Drinking Games

As we’re nearing the end of the school year, we’re getting antsy for all the end-of-year parties and formals in the next few weeks so, for this week, in lieu of a serious Top 10 list (is that an oxymoron?) we’ve opted for a countdown of top drinking games. See mixology on page 11 for drink recipes to play the games with. And, oh yeah — shout out to Sallie’s frat boy friends (and that random pre-frosh) for all their extremely helpful, extremely inebriated input.

Comparable to when cavemen discovered fire, Pong is the fire of every college student’s life. It’s not just a game, but more of a way of life. From quaint community colleges to Ivy League schools, everyone knows Pong. Since the game is so widely played, the alcohol variations are endless! You can play beer pong, wine (go for Andre — it’s way cheaper) pong, vodka pong (not for the first time drinkers or freshmen), tequila pong or (see below) Cornell-related or Cornell sports-related variations of pong. What also separates pong from the rest of the (six-)pack is strategy and patterns you have to know. When I play with my partner (we’re a professional team and our shirts are in the mail), we will switch sides when one of us is getting rusty and missing one-too-may-shots (Shots! Shots! Shots!). Especially when playing with a frat boy, they will ramble off the different ways to arrange the cups to have an optimal chance of getting the ball in the cup. Patterns include crack house, pyramid, diamond, the eye and more. Like traveling to a foreign country, every frat will have different lingo for the exact same set up. It’s confusing (especially after playing three rounds of tequila pong), but pong players are helpful and will always be willing to drunkenly shout at you “make it a quadrangle!”

Although sadly this year’s incredibly epic basketball season is over, it was — as a certain Sports Editor incessantly reminded everyone — really, really epic.

With Slope Day just around the corner, I’m sure many of you are looking forward to celebrating the last day of classes in the way Cornell students have been doing it for years: Spending the day on the slope, enjoying a great concert and of course, drinking some alcohol. Surveys show that two-thirds of Americans consume alcoholic beverages, and while alcohol is often a part of celebrations and can even be beneficial to your health in modest quantities, there are many harmful consequences of alcohol intoxication.


Top 10 Drinking Games

As we’re nearing the end of the school year, we’re getting antsy for all the end-of-year parties and formals in the next few weeks so, for this week, in lieu of a serious Top 10 list (is that an oxymoron?) we’ve opted for a countdown of top drinking games. See mixology on page 11 for drink recipes to play the games with. And, oh yeah — shout out to Sallie’s frat boy friends (and that random pre-frosh) for all their extremely helpful, extremely inebriated input.

Comparable to when cavemen discovered fire, Pong is the fire of every college student’s life. It’s not just a game, but more of a way of life. From quaint community colleges to Ivy League schools, everyone knows Pong. Since the game is so widely played, the alcohol variations are endless! You can play beer pong, wine (go for Andre — it’s way cheaper) pong, vodka pong (not for the first time drinkers or freshmen), tequila pong or (see below) Cornell-related or Cornell sports-related variations of pong. What also separates pong from the rest of the (six-)pack is strategy and patterns you have to know. When I play with my partner (we’re a professional team and our shirts are in the mail), we will switch sides when one of us is getting rusty and missing one-too-may-shots (Shots! Shots! Shots!). Especially when playing with a frat boy, they will ramble off the different ways to arrange the cups to have an optimal chance of getting the ball in the cup. Patterns include crack house, pyramid, diamond, the eye and more. Like traveling to a foreign country, every frat will have different lingo for the exact same set up. It’s confusing (especially after playing three rounds of tequila pong), but pong players are helpful and will always be willing to drunkenly shout at you “make it a quadrangle!”

Although sadly this year’s incredibly epic basketball season is over, it was — as a certain Sports Editor incessantly reminded everyone — really, really epic. So epic that AKB actually codified a drinking game to go along with it. Actually, it wasn’t so much a drinking game as a “drink then justify that shot by pretending it’s part of a game.” (Of course, after we lost it has become much easier to justify all those shots, either while reminiscing about the good times or while still mourning our losses.) Obviously most of the drinking games on this list can be adapted to Sweet Sixteen variations, but if you’re hardcore you probably don’t want a game with rules take a hint from AKB and and just figure out “games” that involve justifying your shots after you’ve taken them. Check out her March 11 article for details.

Easily described as the rich man’s drinking game, Quarters will have you dragging your piggy bank across campus. To play, all you have to do is bounce a quarter off a table to have it land in a shot glass or cup for the ambitious. Mr. Moneybags who is throwing the quarter is called the “shooter.” The shooter either will bounce the quarter into an empty or filled glass. Each round begins with two shooters until one of them gets it in and then passes it to their left. (Watch the madness ensue if you are already drunk playing this game. “No your other left! Make the “L’s!”). There are different ways to play this one as well, including one with a “community cup” that is surrounded by each player’s drinking cup to form a ring that looks like a flower. Its geeky cousin would be the game Spiderwebs, which is played with a pong ball in lieu of quarters. Its Canadian cousin would be the game Moose, played with quarters but being bounced into an ice tray (while you’re waiting for jello shots).

Kings is the drinking game of royalty. Each drinker selects a card on their turn and everyone must comply with the rules of that card. Again, different people play with different meanings for each card, but I generally use Ace is Waterfall (everyone drinks while the person who drew the card is drinking), two is you, three is me, four is floor, etc. (you can e-mail us for the rest if you’re curious). The suit cards get more interesting: Jack means a brief game of “Never Have I Ever,” one who draws a queen becomes the question master and the king makes a rule. Rules can be anything and this is where kings games get crazy. One of my personal favorite rules is called “Mushroom” and that’s when you put the card on top of the beer can or cup in the middle and after several cards, it begins to form a giant pile until it collapses and then you must drink. (One time we went the entire game without dropping any cards. We felt a great sense of accomplishment that evening.)

Remember learning Rock, Paper, Scissors as a child? It became a way to solve all of life’s little problems. (Who gets the front seat of the car? I’ll rock, paper, scissors you for it!) Introducing, the All Grown Up (strange show) version that captures the forever entertaining nature of Rock, Paper, Scissors. In Ro Sham Bo, you count to Ro (1), Sham (2), Bo (3) and either hold out your hand in a rock, paper or scissor. You know the drill, rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper and paper beats rock. (No, you can’t use gun! That’s a cheap move!) If you lose, you drink. Then you just repeat until you can’t remember where your hands are.

And you thought driving that Rainbow Road level was difficult while playing sober! Fun to play if you just want to sit around your dorm/house instead of hitting a frat or a bar, Mario Kart is the go-to game. Now that the Nintendo Wii has an actual steering wheel, you will spend countless hours drinking and watching your friends pretend to be stepping on a gas pedal and falling over when they drive off the road. Other racing games that can be substituted if you don’t own Mario Kart (bummer) or you want to change up the characters (because Mario can only laugh so many times before I throw a Koopa Shell at him!) are Diddy Kong Racing (old school N64 classic) or Crash Team Racing (Sony Playstation).

We’ve all been there. You’re at a frat and you hear the lyrics “I hoped off the plane at LAX” blasting through the speakers. Suddenly, you see their pupil’s dilate, they get sweaty with excitement and then their hands are up in the air like they just don’t care. You then hear that blood-curtailing cry of a frat boy: “IT’S MILEY! TURN IT UP!” Frat boys love Miley Cyrus (they’ll deny it, don’t even bother asking him) so they’ll be fully on-board for this game. You go on Youtube (or watch it on loop on the Disney Channel for those lucky people who have cable), find any episode of Hannah Montana and get ready to get very drunk very fast. The rules are simple: every time a laugh track plays for something that isn’t funny, you drink. Unless you find the adorable things tweens do hysterical, you’ll be downing your drink faster than you can say “Nodding my head like yeah!”

We promised one of Sallie’s fratty friends (heehee, that sounds funny) that this would make it onto the list (even though it is more of a guy’s game than a girl’s game). The idea with this game is that, once you’re already fairly drunk, you try to see if you can finish spanking the monkey before you pass out. If so, you take a shot if not, well, you’re already passed out so it’s a little irrelevant. To spice things up a bit, add NyQuil in the mix and see if you can still yank one out.

Oops. We really intended intended to make it to 10, but maybe we shouldn’t have started drinking so early in the writing process, right Allie? Allie? Allie, where are you? Dammit, did you leave me here alone again? I’m going to finish your beer, then. RLD
