Drinking Games—Ahhhh, it Must Be St. Patties Day Again
With St. Patties Day coming up, I thought I would offer ALL you Irishmen, and women, a few tips on how to enjoy the day by getting drunk using drinking games. Now, I realize that you can STILL have fun on Patties Day without getting drunk, the trouble IS, I just don’t know HOW.
The First one I used to play ALL the time is called Flip, Sip, or Strip. Here’s how it is played:
“Flip a coin and while it is in the air, call heads or tails. If you guess right, pass the coin to your right. If you guess wrong, pass the coin to your left and either take one article of clothing off (anything that is a pair counts as one item) or take a drink.
If you guess right, you can choose to flip again. Another successful guess lets you pass the coin to anyone of your choosing. A wrong guess has normal consequences.
If you guess right three times in a row, you may retrieve an article of clothing and put it back on. The coin is then passed to your right. The only other rule is, a lousy coin toss needs to be re-tossed”.
I can’t TELL you how many times I have played this game and stumbled home with ONLY my panties on.
Another fun one is Circle of Death/Kings Cup
Here, all you need is a deck of cards without the Jokers and some good old Irish Whiskey. Here is how it is played:
To set up the game you will need a full deck of cards, without the jokers, and either a cup full of anything alcoholic or a can of beer. Put the beer or drink in the center of the table and arrange the cards face-down around it.
Decide who goes first and start drawing cards.
Here are what the cards mean (remember, this is regional):
2 – “Two for you” – Give out two drinks
3 – “Three for me” – Take three drinks
4 – “Whores” – Girls drink
5 – “Bust a jive” – Do a dance move, the next person then does that dance move and adds to it, and so on. The dance moves keep going until somebody can’t execute them in the correct order. That person drinks.
6 – “Dicks” – Guys drink
7 – “Heaven” – Everybody reaches to the sky immediately. Last person to do so drinks.
8 – “Pick a date” – Pick somebody to drink with you. Every time you screw up or have to drink, they have to drink, too. But if they drink, you don’t have to (unless you both are “dating” each other.)
9 – “Bust a rhyme” – The person who draws a card says a word to rhyme. Orange, purple, and silver (and any other non-rhyming English words) are illegal. The people then go around in order trying to rhyme with that word. No repeats. If someone can’t think of a rhyme or accidentally repeats, they drink. Note: For more advanced people, rhythm can be kept.
10 – “Categories” – The person who draws the card picks a category, like “farm animals” or “brands of cereal.” The people then go around in the circle naming things within this category. No repeats. If someone repeats or can’t think of something to contribute, they drink.
Jack – “Never have I ever” – Everybody puts up five fingers. The person who drew the card says something they’ve never done, and anybody who has done it has to put a finger down. It can be as dirty or as clean as you like. The person who loses all five fingers first drinks.
Queen – “Question master” – This person is now the question master. Until the next queen is drawn, this person can ask anyone a question. If they fail to answer the question with a question, they drink.
King – “Make a rule” – A rule is made that lasts until the end of the game. Rules can be compounding, so after all four kings are played, there will be four rules. Anytime a rule is broken, and a person gets called on it, they have to drink.
Ace- “Waterfall” – Everybody drinks until the person who drew the card stops drinking. The last person to draw “Waterfall” has to drink the cup or beer at the center of the cards.
OMG!!!!! This game is played early on in the day so that by NIGHT FALL, everyone you stagger into IS IRISH and needs to be KISSED. A fun time is guaranteed for all—UNTILL he next day.
If you DO drink, please remember NOT to drive, and be safe…
