The Best Summer Drinking Games

Annnnnnnd it's Monday again. Which is dumb. And since it's Monday, I can't get my mind working. So I'm gonna repost a bunch of my favorite drinking games that I originally did as a guest post for the most amazing Texas lady, Sara (who has a new name and blog design that is amazing!!) There are only a few weeks left in summer so you better start putting these to use!!

Some of these you may have heard of, or played under a different name or different rules but they are ALL hilarious and such great games for summer BBQs and parties!!

(This basically has to be played outside. It's messsssy)
Number of players: However many fit at the table

What you need:
   1.      a large number of solo cups (I suggest 20-40 depending on how 
         many play, plus 2 extra)
   2.      enough beer to fill all the cups in the center to your desired 
         amount (I suggest to the first indent aka flip cup amount)
   3.      ping pong balls (1 for every 5 people, minimum 2)
   4.      table

How you set it up:
1.      place all but 2 cups in the center of the table in a cluster
2.      fill up cups with beer to your desired amount
3.      have people stand in a circle around the table
4.      give two people at opposite ends of the table a pong ball and empty cup

How to play:
1.      people with the ball begin by bouncing the ball on the table to get it in their own cup
2.      once they get it in they pass the cup and ball
·         if made on their first attempt, pass to anyone in the circle
·         if made after multiple attempts, pass to the left
3.      when the cups catch up to each other and the person on the right gets the ball in their cup before the person on the left can get rid of theirs, the person on the right SLAPS the cup of the person on the left off the table and passes their cup and ball to the next person to the left
4.      the person who got SLAPPED grabs a cup from the center, drinks it, retrieves the ball and begins trying to bounce the ball into the new cup

How to win:
If you're sober, you win.. or lose depending on the intention!


Number of players: 2

What you need:
   1.      drink of your choice
   2.      deck of cards
   3.      table

How you set it up:
place 5 cards in a line between you and the other player with the middle one face down

How to play:
1.      the person guessing says if the first card to be drawn will be higher or lower than the first card in the line (ace high)
2.      the dealer places the first card in his deck on top of the first card in the line
·         If the guesser is incorrect at this point or at any other guess they drink and start over
3.      continue with the next card in the line (higher or lower)
4.      when the face down card is reached, the guesser says whether the card is black or red
5.      the dealer flips the card and continues
·         if the guesser is wrong at this step, place a new card face down on top of the middle card and start over
**if the deck runs out, leave the top cards and collect all cards underneath, shuffle and begin again**

How to win:
Guesser gets through the entire line of 5 cards, then switch roles!

**very similar to beruit**

Number of players: 6

What you need:
    1.      18 cups
    2.      enough beer to fill all cups halfway-ish (about 5 beers total)
    3.      table

How you set it up:
1.      set up 9 cups along the edge of each end of the table
2.      make 3 “mini racks” from those 9 on each side
·         each player will have their own “mini rack”
3.      fill up cups to desired amount
4.      one team starts with 1 ball, other team starts with 2

How to play:
1.      on 3..2..1..GO play begins
2.      players shoot for any cup n the opposing players racks
3.      when a cup is sunk, the player behind that mini rack has to drink and CAN NOT throw the ball until the drink is finished
·         the player drinking can hand off the ball to a teammate
4.      once a players mini rack is all hit, they can no longer shoot the ball
·         the player can play “offense” by trying to collect balls that have fallen on the floor/lying in the middle of the table and give them to teammates
**balls on the floor or table are free game but players must stay on their sides while trying to collect the loose balls**

Whichever team has cups standing at the end is the winner!

4.      all players other than the “drinker” and “roller” pour as much of their drinks into the center cup as they want
5.      whenever there is a lull in pouring, the “drinker” can grab the cup and start chugging
6.      the “roller” starts rolling the dice as soon as the “drinker” grabs the cup
·         if 7, 11 or doubles is rolled before the “drinker” finishes, time is up, the cup goes back on the table and other players can add beer again and the “drinker” can grab the drink and try again

And now I wanna introduce me to one of the coolest bloggers I've met!!


1. When and why did you start blogging?
I started blogging in March because I was either working, studying or napping and needed a creative outlet. Also my mom and boyfriend were sick of listening to my constant rambles and obsession with coupons and I heard that people on the internet love crazies like me, so I thought I would give it a go.

2. What is your favorite post you've written and why?
My favorite post so far has been "Intercultural Dating or 'Hi Mom, I Fell in Love with a Mexican. No... He's not Jewish" because it is one of my more serious posts and it is about the struggles I face being in a relationship with someone who comes from such a different world from mine. I never knew I could love someone who had no idea who Hilary Duff was but we make it work.

3. Your dog is freakin adorable. What do you like best and hate most about having a big dog?
Thanks! He is a big boy- almost 60 pounds. I love a big dog because they are good cuddlers. Especially Moose, he loves to cuddle and get all up in there. Moose is also a good size because we can still pick him up and carry him when he decides to run across the street to chase the cat. Having a big dog is tough though because they take up so much room in the bed- which means that if the boyfriend doesn't make it in time, he is on the couch for the night. 


  1. I plan to perfect all of those games!

  2. I feel like somebody should organize a drinking field day where all of these games are played.


    I can't even....
