Top Five Dumbest Drinking Games

  1. Danish Beer Run

You divide people up into two even teams. One beer can for every person is placed unopen at least 20 yards away. On the count of something, the first person on each team runs down to the cans, opens one, and chugs it. They then place the can on the ground, and while still holding the can, spin around it ten times. They then run back to the start and the next person on the team goes. First team to have everyone finish wins. You may add rules and penalties about falling, fighting, not finishing, etc.

  1. Cement Mixer

This is basically a shooter turned into a game. All it really takes is a bunch of people with strong stomachs.

Also, each person needs:

  • 1 1/4 oz. Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 1/4 oz. Rose's Lime Juice

Place Irish Cream in mouth, hold in place. Add Rose's Lime Juice, then mix in mouth by shaking your head "no no no" very rapidly. Mixture turns the consistency of cottage cheese, and not very tasty. The last person shaking their head (without swallowing -- not that you'd want to) wins.

  1. Slow Boat To China

Any more than about 10 people total playing, and the game gets out of hand, as drunks are easily distracted. The first person starts out by saying 'If I were to take a slow boat to China, I'd take a [blank] with me.' The word has to be a noun, and that first person doesn't drink. The next person says 'If I were to take a slow boat to China, I'd take a [blank] with me.' The word that next person chooses must start with the last letter that the word the first person chose. For instance, if the first person took a doG, the next person could take a Goat and not drink, but a Suitcase wouldn't do the trick, and that person would drink and pass the turn. As people figure it out (or if NO one figures it out), the game loses its luster, but until then, the potential exists for three or four beers to be consumed in half an hour. Not a bad buzz for most people. Cheers on your way to the Orient!

  1. Drop The Dime

To play this game you will need a cigarette, a glass, a napkin, and a dime. Unfold the napkin and place it over the mouth of the glass so that it will stay in place (may need to secure with tape or rubber band). Then place the dime in the center of the napkin. The object is to see how much of the napkin you can burn away, taking turns, with the cigarette. The player to cause the dime to drop consumes a full glass of beer.

  1. Batbeer

BatBeer is played while watching a "Batman" movie (original 60's or those Michael Keaton ones), or the TV show, (original or 90's animated). Every time anybody says "bat"-anything, you take a drink. If Robin says "holy"-anything then finish your beer. If Robin is in really being "holy," you may want to change this to 5 gulps or so. If O'Reilly says anything Irish (original shows), then you chug an entire beer.
