Low

Games meant for the easily tanked, or as a social exercise

Whales Tales

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Very confusing at first, but you'll get the hang of it, eventually. Beer and people with an imagination are needed. Any number of people stand together in a circle & 1 person (the prince of wales) starts by saying...

"Whales tales, the prince of wales calls <type of> tales, on a court of <court size>, on <someone>"

Viking

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Another very simple game, with a low boot factor. No limit on number of players, but more than ten or so is not recommended.

The players sit in a circle, one person goes first. The player makes "wiggly viking horns," simply thumbs in, or near, ears and wiggles the remaining fingers for a second or two, then claps both palms together, and points them at any other player.

Thumper

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Simple game for highly energetic people. Low buzz factor.
Required supplies: people and beer.

The first thing to do is for each person to choose a hand gesture that they would like to have represent him/her during the game. Can be simple, polite, or sexually enticing, but it must be SHORT.

Suck and Blow

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A classic game for the purpose of meeting people, not for getting drunk. Supplies needed: people of both sexes (depending on sexual preference) and something along the lines of a good sized index card or sheet of paper.

Everyone sits in a circle, generally male - female. Someone chooses to start, and places the card against his/her lips, then using nothing but air pressure passes it to the person sitting next to him. This person takes the card by sucking on it and attempts to pass it to the next person, of course, never touching the card with hands.

Spinners

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A physically and mentally "challenging" game. Low buzz factor.
Supplies: people, beer, and a quarter.

A group of people sit around a flat table with one quarter. One person takes the quarter and stands it on edge on the table, holding it with the end of his/her finger. with his other hand, (or with the same hand holding the quarter), he hits the quarter, causing it to spin (like a top) across the table.

Smile

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Highly adult game. Low buzz factor, nonetheless quite enjoyable to play.

Approx 6-8 guys or girls (all one sex or mixed, for that matter) sit around a table with a table cloth that hangs to the floor. The participants drop their pants/skirts/shorts to their ankles and a willing person goes under the table to do whatever s/he wishes.

SCUD Attack (historical)

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This reached me by email, after several forwardings. Earliest From is TLE::DIEWALD (at DEC?) and early subject line was "Making the rounds at Dupont..."

The order of channel-hopping is NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN. At each commercial, unless otherwise indicated by further rules, the channel is changed.

If you hear someone on TV say "scud," take a swig of beer and change the channel except during scud attacks (see below).

Master of the Thumb

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This game is played in conjunction with any other game during the course of the evening. It is very simple and easily adapted.

The game starts by picking the person who will be the first Master Of The Thumb. While sitting around the table having a good time, the Master Of The Thumb can, at any time s/he chooses, non-chalantly place her thumb on the edge of the table. After she has started this, anyone who notices must follow example. The last person to place his/her thumb on the table loses and has to drink, but they do become the new Master Of

Drug Dealer

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Quite a simple game, really, this is a game to play while doing other things at a party. To play the game you need one playing card for each participant. You always need one King and one Ace, and a variety of numbered cards some low, some mid, some high, but just one card per player.
