Drinking games are a great way to socialize and interact with friends and acquaintances. College kids and young adults across the globe have been playing drinking games as a means of socializing for years. One of the more common games that brings people together is the game of beer pong. It is an incredibly fun game that can be enjoyed by young and old alike, which is probably why it has become the most popular drinking game in the world. Another popular game is cornhole. This game can be seen at tailgate parties and backyard events all over the country. A third fan favorite is the game of flip cup. Here is some information about all three of these fun games. Beer pong, which many say is derived from ping pong is a game of strategy and skill, until the booze sets in of course. It is a fun way to socialize through friendly competition as it can be seen at nearly every college party in the world. The game involves two teams of two, a couple ping pong balls, a table and some beer.
To start, you want to arrange a bunch of cups in a triangular formation at the end of each side of the table. Fill the cups with beer and start firing balls across the table. If you make a cup, your opponent has to remove the cup and drink the contents. Repeat these steps until one team eliminates the other team’s cups. The beauty of this game is that everyone gets to have a good time and drink some beers!
Another fan favorite is the game of cornhole. This game involves two wooden boards with a hole at the top and some bean bags. The objective is to toss a bean bag back and forth, trying to get it into the hole. You will be awarded points for bags that land on the board, but you ultimately want to get them into the hole. Similar to beer pong, it is best to have two teams of two. This will promote some friendly competition. Typically, there is beer or other types of alcohol involved, which is probably why so many people enjoy this game.
Last but not least is the game of flip cup. This is a game that can be played with as many people as you want, as long as you have the same number of people on both teams. You basically will be racing against the other team by chugging beers and then flipping the cups to try and get them to land right side up on the table. After your cup lands, the next person in line goes until your team finishes. If your team successfully chugs all of the beer and gets all of the cups to land upright, you win. This is a popular game at parties as it is easy to play and only involves a table, plastic cups, people and some beer.
These are just 3 of the many popular drinking games out there. College kids especially have been using games like this to socialize for years. They are all great ways to interact with friends, meet new people and have a blast at any function. Next time you are hosting a party or are heading to one, introduce 1 or all of these games and you will be the life of the party.
