Card

A card game is any game using playing cards as the primary things with which the game is played, be they traditional or game-specific. Many card games involve traditional games, with drinks awarded with hands, points, or games; others are entirely crafted for the purpose of assigning drinks to players.

Zig-Zag

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

All you need is a deck of playing cards and beer. Create four stacks of five cards face-down in a zig-zag formation, like this:

                                        
 ::    ::  
   ::    ::

Thus the name.

Up and Down the River

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Quite an excellent game with a potentially very high buzz factor. Required materials: many people and at least two decks of cards. A good rule of thumb is one deck for six people, than an additional deck for every additional eight to ten people.

Everyone sits in a circle, one player is the dealer as well as a participant. Each player is dealt four cards face up, to be kept in front of that player.

Trapped

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This is a very simple game to play. It is best played with a group of 3-6 players.
Necessary equipment: deck of cards, people and beer.

The deal alternates clockwise. All of the cards are dealt out face down to each player. The players should make sure to keep their hand hidden from the other players.

Thirty-One

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A game of math and drinking. You'll need a deck of cards, people, and beer. The game follows the same premise as BlackJack, but with some important variations.

The object of the game is to get as close to 31 points in your hand without going over. Aces are 11, all face cards are 10 points, and all other cards are face value.

Well, I looked for this one and didn't see it so here goes...

Supplies:1 deck cards, 1 empty bottle w/no cap

Place the empty bottle in the center of the playing area. Deal the full deck around the base of the bottle. Players sit around the bottle. Who goes first is decided by any mutually agreeable method. Pick card and follow the chart below...

High or Low

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This is another very easy game with a pretty decent buzz factor.
Materials needed: people, beer, cards.

Player one is dealt a card. S/he then guesses whether the next card will be higher or lower than the next card. If wrong, s/he drinks once (because one card was showing). If correct, s/he guesses again.

Steering Wheel of Death

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This game submitted by Scott Bryant.

This game is merely a combination of Truck Driver and Death Ring. You must guess higher or lower than the previously picked card, and if any of them are the same suit you must drink just like death ring; Everybody counts [sequentially] up to your number whilst you drink - Then, to make it harder, you must keep picking up cards until you guess correctly higher or lower.

Spoons

Subject: Drinking game---SPOONS

Best when played with 5 or more people.

You will need one less spoon than the number of people. Place the spoons in the center of the table, alternating the direction of the handles. They should be placed where each person should be able to reach a spoon close to them.

Snap

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A game of speed, challenge, and intellect? (or was that Thumper?) Anyways, a good game with a Very High buzz factor. Supplies: people, beer, and cards.

Best played with a large number of people (for obvious reasons). One person is designated as the dealer. (This person should be changed every round because the dealer is at a distinct disadvantage. Some people play that the dealer does not play on his/her turn.) The dealer begins by placing cards, face up, in a stack, and calls out the number on each turn.
