The Buzz drinking game is a simple but mentally tricky vocal game where players take turns counting up from the number one but replacing certain numbers with the word »Buzz«.✍️ October 7, 2019
Equipment for Buzz ✅
- Drink of choice
- At least 2 players (We recommend 4+ players)
Setup for Buzz 🧐
Gather all players and have them sit in a circle by the table or on the floor. Now make sure every player has one drink like beer, wine or mixed drink by their side. The youngest player starts the game.
Rules for Buzz 🤓
The Buzz rules seems really simple on paper, but as this is a fast-paced game, they will become harder and harder as the game progresses. The youngest player starts the game by saying “one”, then the player to their left continues to count upwards by saying “two”. This continues until someone messes up the counting.
Now here comes the really tricky part: Some numbers must be replaced with the word »Buzz«.
List of special numbers that must be replaced 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.

Dangers of playing Buzz ⚠️
Buzz is certainly extremely fun to play as you don’t need much equipment, but it could also lead to consuming a lot of alcohol. Yes, at the end of the day, that’s why we’re playing drinking games. But please, don’t drink and drive afterward! Have fun with Buzz!
