Buzz

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Simple game, low buzz factor. None the less entertaining when a good buzz is already attained. Required supplies: people, and of course, beer.

Sit in a circle. The first player says 'one,' the next player says 'two,' and so on down the line. However, when someone reaches a number that is divisible by 7, s/he says "buzz."

If the player misses a "buzz" when needed, or when an unnecessary "buzz" occurs, that player drinks.

The obvious challenge is to see how high of a number can be attained; but this also means very little drinking. The known current record is over 1200.

Variation: An honest "buzz" would change the direction of the circle. Or add '11' into the rotation and say 'Bizz' for divisibles of 11. In this case, watch out for 77.

Basically it's the same as Buzz, but instead of saying the number, one makes no noise, but nods to represent the number, and says "buzz" at every multiple of seven, or number containing the digit 7.

Penalties range from 1 finger to downing a pint, as decided by the group.
