Magical Dice: This game is quite simple. Each player is assigned a number and whenever their number is rolled, the player must drink. This can include getting rather inebriated rather quickly and sometimes that's the point!
Movie Games: When watching a particular movie or TV show, you can assign specific words as drinking words. This is particularly popular when watching erotic films at a stag party. Certain words named in the rules could result in a lot of chug-a-lugging!
Drunk Jenga: The game of Jenga requires very steady hands. How steady can you stay when you've had six beers? Not bad? How about eight? Some Drunk Jenga players have a special Jenga set reserved just for drinking. Certain orders are written on the bottom of some blocks that tell people to drink, give people a chance to order others to drink, advise what to drink and how many drinks so when you mange get a block out, it might just have directions you need to follow. And, if you collapse, you might establish a rule that could have a big impact on your sobriety.
Verbal Games: Verbal games can be fun and can be incorporate into other drinking games as well as be played on their own. Playing a game of cards but putting rules out about saying certain words or cussing could result in a lot of laughter.
The following goes without saying for most but definitely bears repeating. When playing drinking games, decide ahead of time if there's going to be a big sleepover or if there will be taxis called at the end of the night. You certainly don't want anyone getting behind the wheel, of course. When planning a sleepover, be sure to place buckets or bowls around the sleeping area for anyone who has been either the winner, or loser (depending on how you look at it) of the drinking games and do have a supply of paper towels, carpet cleaner and mouthwash on hand.
