Verbal

Games whose play involves speech, usually the successful completion of tongue twisters, or successfully remembering and repeating word associations.

Rhyme

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A drinking game for aspiring poets, well, not really. You'll need people and beer to play, that's it.

Any player can begin the game, all it takes is for the person to say a word, any word. The next player must say another word that rhymes with the previous word. Play ends when a word is repeated or a non-rhyming word is said. The violator then takes a drink. Play begins again with a new word.

Questions

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This is a favorite drinking game, although it's often difficult to find people willing to play it. Mid level buzz factor. Basic supplies only: people and beer.

It starts with a room full of people, the more the merrier. The object is to ask a question when it is your turn, but this is much more difficult than it seems.

Sentences

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Now this is a game that has the potential for some very good humor. All you need to play is people and beer, really, believe me.

The game begins by a player saying a word. The next player must say a word that helps form a sentence from the previous words. The game continues until someone says a word that doesn't make any sense in the sentence, takes too long to think of a word, or is unable to speak due to excessive laughter. The player at fault takes a drink and play begins again with a new word.

Name Game

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Another good "get to know ya'" kind of game. Mid buzz factor. Only the standard supplies are needed: people and beer.

Everybody sits in a circle, (isn't this how most games start?) and someone starts by saying the name of someone famous, or pretty close to being famous as far as those people are concerned.

I don't know if you got that one or not, we always play it hear in Oregon State U. It's called double O 7 (007).

it needs 4 players/drinkers, they sit in a circule. The person who starts is usually who owns the place, or who brought the beer, he/she starts saying O then points at somebody to continue, the person who got pointed at says O and points at another person (or same or himself/herself), then the person who got pointed at says 7 and points at someone, and that someone says BANG! and points.

Categories

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A simple game that requires a little bit of thought. Standard supplies: people and beer.

Any player can start the game, all it takes is the calling out of a category. The next player then has to say some that fits into that category. Play ends when somebody repeats something that has already been said, or can't think of anything new. The player at fault takes a drink, then play starts again with a new category.

Sample categories: States, Cars, Brands of Beer, Sexual Positions, Brands of Cigarettes, Animals, Colors, etc.


Bunnies

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

The bare minimum is 4 players, but 6 or more is far preferable. The players sit around a table or is some other way such that everyone has one person on his left and one on his right.

Somebody starts by holding both hands up to the side of his head and waving them up and down like bunny ears. Whenever someone is doing this, the person on his left must have their right hand up by the side of their head(and waving), and the person on his right must have their left hand up (and waving).

Now, the person with both hands up (the bunny) tags to another player

Subject: Here is a drinking game you might what to check out

Hello.. I was reading your web page on drinking games! Me and some friends love playing bullshit but you play alot different than we do. Maybe you will like this way if not I just thought I would tell you it! OK.

Things you need: people and drinks

OK, Everyone stands in a circle and everyone picks a color! Make sure everyone knows their color! OK so say we have Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, and Brown!

Bouncing Ball

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A very interesting and imaginative game. Mid level buzz factor. Supplies: people, beer, and an imaginary ball.

Everyone sits around a table. There are only three words that can be said: WHIZ, BOUNCE, and BOING. Someone starts by saying one of the words.

WHIZ = the ball passes to next player.
BOUNCE = the ball skips the next player and goes to the following player.
BOING = ball hits wall and reverses direction.

The penalty for errors is drinking.

Variation: play with difficult words such as PERFIGLIANO, SCHWARTZ, and a players name.
