Here is another variation on your version of "BUZZ". To us poor folks at the University of Western Ontario it is known as Bizz Buzz.

Rules: Sit in a circle. First person starts off by saying "one", second two, etc except that no numbers divisible or with a three can be said. Instead of the number (e.g. 3, 6, 9 12, 13,...23, 24, 27, 30, 31...) the player says Bizz or Buzz. Bizz is the way it is Buzz is the way it "wuz". In other words if Bizz is said the direction remains the same, Buzz, change of direction. Any goof is accompanied by a drink, whether it be the wrong number, out of turn or a "3" number.

The maximum value we've reached is 48, although others may have seen higher.
