QOTD 61: Your_Favourite_Boozer

What are your favorite drinking games? Any excellent drinking game stories?
I know a lot of people who think drinking games are dumb. Those people don't have souls. Drinking games are awesome! I'll list some of my favorite:




Bullshit Pyramid - I'm not sure if a lot of people know about this one. You need at least three players and a deck of cards. You're given 3 or 4 cards that you have to memorize. After lay down cards in a pyramid shape with a 4 (or 5) card base. You flip over the cards on the bottom from left to right. After each card is flipped, any can say they have that card, and tell another player to drink. That player can then opt to drink, or call bullshit. If it turns out the other player has the card, you drink double. If they *don't* have the card, they drink double.

It's easier to play than explain, but definitely my favorite.

Kings - This one has a few different names, but you spread a bunch of cards around a cup or an unopen beer and pull cards, where each card has a rule. You pull a 9, you have to go around the table saying rhyming words until someone can't, then they drink.I personally enjoy making 8 "never have I ever", Queen "Question master" (every time someone answers a question from that person, they have to drink) and making Jack "make a rule" (my favorite being "if you say drink, you have to drink")

Beer Pong - I love it, but too much setup / mess.


Polish Horseshoes - I like this one a lot, but don't have the space for it. Get a stick, stick it in the ground, put a beer on top, throw a frisbee / football at it. If they hit the beer you drink a lot, hit the stick you drink a little, if they miss, they drink.

  1. Our big games were Asshole and Hockey, but my favorite was Bullshit.


    We were at a friend's house once and he didn't have a deck of cards to play games, so my other buddy and I went out to the nearby drugstore to get a deck. He went to get the deck while I picked up a pack of smokes and some Gatorade. He comes back to the checkout triumphantly announcing 'I got the STUD deck!', Stud being the brand of cards. We get back to the place and we're about to deal...


    'Joe these are pinochle cards'.

  2. Asshole was always a favorite.

    I played beer pong for the first time in at least a year recently. Football tailgates would be about the only place I still play it at.

  3. My favourite was called 3-Man. You use dice, and have to do different stuff depending on the roll. Last person to do whatever the action is has to drink. There's also a silly hat. I don't remember all the rules.
    And Century Club is always a classic. One sip of your drink every minute for 100 minutes. Good times.

  4. Ummmm I'm gonna stay out of this one

    Well, it's been a while, but back in my college days, my friends and I liked to play "let's just drink until someone pukes".

    I was usually the winner (or loser, from another vantage point). One late night we went through the Burger King drive thru (my cousin was sober, and it was his car). I ordered a Whopper Jr. A few minutes later I had to hurl. My cousin was like, "Dude, not in the car". He stopped, and I'm pretty sure I regurgitated the entire burger while it was still whole.

    Now I sit here in judgment of all you lushes...

  6. Actually that really was Austin's Alliance theme. They switched back to his classic theme sometime after Survivor Series

  7. It bears mentioning, if you've never played circle of death, that the incorrect answer in question in no way constituted the end of the game, and I ruined the game because my friends made a rule that I- and only I- couldn't talk or else I'd be snapped with a wet towel.

    Again: I love day drinking.

  8. I liked the one with lyrics quite a lot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HGITYzGbhM

  9. Oh, man, Century Club. We had a chart on the wall of my friend's apartment when we were 19, maybe 20. At 67, it said "Travis throws up." At 79 it said "Travis throws up again."

    He finished.

  10. I call a century club a power hour. I couldn't do 100 minutes.

    Was that the Disturbed version? Yeah, that whole era was weird for Austin. From the heel turn, to the shitty music, to the Alliance, to the face turn. Meanwhile, his in ring work was probably the best during his time there.

    ReplyDelete
  12. He's a trooper. Century Club will get you every time.
    My brother can drink, violently puke, and just go on drinking as if nothing happened. I never puke unless I'm absolutely annihiliated and when I do, that is the unquestioned end of my evening.

    ReplyDelete
  13. No, I think this was his Disturbed music, I liked that one.

    ReplyDelete
  14. These guys had such a great feud in the middle of a shitty angle

    ReplyDelete
  15. Say what you will about the booking of the InVasion era, but the ringwork during that time period kicked historic levels of ass.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The best heel Austin match from that run was the Smackdown match against Benoit.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favorite Boozer? Carlos. Definitely. I'm a diehard Bulls fan, he's had a great FG % the last couple years, and he's the only guy in the NBA to consistently yell, "Gimmie that shit," as he grabs a rebound.

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOVED that fast paced, shredding, heel Austin theme... with a hint of vintage horror in there too.

    ReplyDelete
  19. As much as the Invasion sucked there was damn fine wrestling going on. Rock was at his absolute peak as a worker, Austin was doing amazing stuff in the ring. Kurt Angle was coming in to his own as a star. The ECW guys did cool stuff (RVD and Ryhno in particular). Kane was at his best. Of course Benoit and Jericho's push before Benoit and Triple H got hurt ruled. There was all kinds of 4 star matches almost every week. Of course the Invasion sucked, but workrate wise it really was a peak time.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Very cool theme.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I missed out on all this as I didn't go to college until I was 22 and already had a kid. At that point I was doing nothing but working and studying. I went right into drinking whiskey on the rocks like I was some sort of sophisticated gentlemen. Nowadays I really enjoy craft beer, and there is a huge selection in Northern Ohio. Drinking games are just one of the things I missed out on by not having a true "college experience".

    ReplyDelete
  22. Austin's music changed to this (well a version of it which got tweaked about 3 or 4 times before they settled on it) the night after the Invasion PPV. So no dub over... personally I really like this as a heel theme, it's intense like Austin but doesn't allow the crowd to pop like his previous songs, which was the aim as he was meant to be the top bad guy.


    What a match by the way! Boy do I miss these days (despite how crappy the Invasion angle itself was).

    ReplyDelete
  23. Century club is the tits, we always called it "power hour or power 90" depending on amount of time. Must be a regional difference. A nice variation is to do it with shots. 1 shot every 8 minutes, not perfect match but a good steady pace to get your night going

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm so anti drinking games. Why can't you just drink like a person? I've never got the concept of gimmick drinking. I guess I don't see the need to be "forced" to take a drink.

    I do want to say that that i consider beer pong to be a game like pool or darts etc you can play while drinking. Im exempting it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was going to make that joke but though, no, it's way to bad, even for this blog.

    ReplyDelete
  26. See I don't typically drink enough in like, general conversation to get any sort of legitimately boozy. Drinking games help us big guys get our party on.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love hockey.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like Power Hour, hockey and beer pong. Don't play them as much now that I'm not in college but still fun to break those out every now and then. Power Hour is fun as we have a mix of one minute clips of classic songs so you just drink whenever the song changes.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favourite Boozer?


    Carlos.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have a friend from England who said that he and his friends used to play a game called Hermit. Basically he and his friends would take a 12 pack and go into separate rooms with no lights, no tv, no phone, no internet, etc and you couldn't come out until you finished your 12 pack. You couldn't leave to piss or anything. Doesn't sound like much of a game to me but more of an endurance test. I gotta say, I want to try it one day. It's like climbing Mount Everest. Why do it? Because it's there.

  32. What is Hockey?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Here you go. This version has two safe cards but the way I play it, the only safe card is a 4.

  34. This QOTD is an attempt to keep my post count down and kill my push!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I never got the point of beer pong back in my drinking days... I WANTED to drink more... so why wouldn't I try to lose?

    ReplyDelete
  36. You can still drink while playing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is exactly why I don't get them. So drinking is a punishment to be avoided... while you're out drinking?

    Drinking games slow me down. I'll inevitably keep drinking while waiting for my turn, only to have to chug something. Just let me drink at my own pace, I'll get drunk, believe me.

    'Asshole was always a favorite.'


    wow, all sorts f references t me in this qotd!

    ReplyDelete
  44. He's my least favorite Boozer because I'm a Bulls fan. He also leads the league in yelling for help when he's been beat.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Around these parts the big game is Beirut, which is a weird beer pong/quarters hybrid where you chuck a quarter instead of a ping pong ball. No bouncing or anything, just straight into the cup. Its not really that hard so games go quick. I've played some games of Asshole and 3-Man but I'm always shitty with the rules. But since I generally drink in bars instead of at parties these days, I usually only play darts or dice. (Or pool but I'm the worst fucking pool player alive so I usually don't.)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Also best rule to make up for Asshole/Kings/whatever: drink every time you swear. So fucking hard to avoid. Kinda the point.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryNovember 12, 2013 at 9:31 PM

    Every time I play 3 man I end up getting totally bombed, so I can't even remember the rules.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I always enjoyed the team aspect of flip cup. Also enjoy a good game of fuck the dealer.

    ReplyDelete
  49. YES!


    (Seriously that's all I could come up with... its late here... and snowing... it was 75 this afternoon)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Holy shit that KU Duke game was wild

    ReplyDelete
  51. Jesus that sounds awful!Wtf...aalthough you'd be motivated to drink fast

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've played games of horse and knockout where the losers of each turn had to drink now that I think about it. I definitely like to play games while I drink, like pool or horse shoes or shooting bball. But I'm not a fan of using drinks as a scoring system because it seems stupid. I'll drink all night long in crazy amounts like-aanyone does but I don't need to be told how and when by a game.

    I've played on a men's league bball team-where some guys showed up drunk for a few games which wasnr as big of a deal as you might think. I once played in a game after eating a chewable oxy. It wasn't really a big deal either. I have some friends who play in a softball league where they take drinks at every base and do shots on double plays.

  59. Thank God you're here. Murphy. No one else here was going to know what Beirut was. The North Country connection is always appreciated!

  60. In your parts, if there was a gap between your cups, did people tell you to fix your Jenny Tucker? Because I actually know the gap-toothed girl who is named that and I wondered how far it traveled.

    ReplyDelete
  61. To be fair, it's been 12-13 years since I played, so my drunken memories may be a bit fuzzy. I'll have to ask some of my friends who went to Clarkson, they're the ones who introduced me to the game.

    ReplyDelete
  62. This sounds like torture. I couldn't do a 12 pack without peeing a few times

    ReplyDelete
  63. Apparently you can still pee, you just can't leave the room to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Ah I see. Guess you're filling up those empty beer cans then.

    Wonder how long it takes, would definitely be motivated to drink as quickly as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  65. He said the fastest he ever saw anyone do it in was about 50 minutes or so. Sounded legit to me b/c when you do a Power Hour with slightly larger than normal shots, you're drinking 7 or so beers in an hour so an Englishman chugging light beer could probably get 12 down in that same span. He also told me there were times when they'd each do an entire case. I can't fathom that.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yeah but then she comes back and my dick is all wet.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Kategories, Presidents & Assholes, Hockey, Fuck The Dealer, Beer Pong, Century Club/Power Hour...all the usual ones. A lot of my fraternity brothers would also Edward 40 Hands, with a 40 of malt liquor duct taped to each hand. That one never ended well.
