1. Buzz Drinking Game
Buzz is a game that seems easy to play at first, but it’s actually more difficult once you start playing it. The main premise of Buzz is that players take turns counting from number one while replacing specific numbers with the word, “buzz”. Since this is a fun party drinking game, of course, everyone drinks when someone is not able to call out the word “buzz” when they’re supposed to!
How to Play Buzz Drinking Game
Buzz is a fast-paced game which becomes more challenging as the game goes on. To start playing Buzz, the youngest player or whoever the group decides to be the starting player will start the count and say 1. The player to the first player’s left continues to count upwards by saying 2, and this continues until someone makes a mistake with the count.
Someone messes up the count when they fail to say “buzz” for certain numbers.
Here are some examples of rules when you can replace numbers with the word “buzz”: - Numbers with a 7 in it (7, 17, 27…) - Multiples of 7 (7, 14, 21…) - Double-digit repeating numbers (11, 22, 33…)
When someone messes up a buzz, everyone drinks!
2. Beer Pong Beirut
When it comes to fun party drinking games, you can never go wrong with a game of Beer Pong Beirut. Whether you’re a player or a spectator, people competing to shoot ping pong balls into red solo cups half-filled with beer is exciting!
How to Play Beer Pong Beirut
As its name implies, Beer Pong is played similar to how a regular ping pong game is played although of course, you don’t need a table tennis table or paddle to play!
In Beer Pong, players must face each other with a table in between them. Each side of the table will have 6 cups of beer which should be arranged in a triangle (3-2-1) formation. Players take turns throwing a ping pong ball across the table and trying to shoot the ball into one of their opponent’s beer-filled cups.
Once a player successfully shoots a ping pong ball into a cup, their opponent has to drink the cup where the ball landed and that cup gets taken off the table. The first player to successfully hit all of their opponent’s cups wins the game! The losing player must drink the remaining cups.

3. Kings Cup
Playing card games is another fun activity that you can do whether you have a party with a huge group or just have a casual hangout with friends. Also known as Circle of Death, Kings Cup is a drinking game where players draw cards and must perform the action associated with a card that they picked.
How to Play Kings Cup
Set the cards face down at the center of the table and let each player take turns picking a card from the deck. Your cards can surround a mug/glass of beer which would be your Kings Cup. Players then take turns picking a card and doing the action assigned to that particular card.
What makes Kings Cup so much fun are the rules/actions that players need to follow whenever they pick a card.
Rule: Whoever picks a King card can pour additional drinks into the Kings Cup.
The player who picks the 4th King card will have to drink the entire Kings Cup with all sorts of drinks in it!
