How to Play the Landmines Drinking Game

The aim of this game is for players to finish their drink before the spinning coin stops. But let’s start from the beginning. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to play the Landmines Drinking Game:

1. Before you start your round, pour your beer wager into your cup.

You can pour as much or as little beer into your cup. Remember, you have to drink it up before the coin lands on a side. However, also keep in mind that once you’ve finished your beer can you can use it as a landmine later on in the game. So you’ll have to balance pouring enough beer so you can collect landmines quickly but not so much that it’ll be impossible to finish in time.

2. Start your round by spinning the coin and chugging your beer wager.

Once the coin is spinning, you must start chugging your beer before the coin stops spinning.

3. If you manage to finish your drink before the coin lands on a side, it’s the next player’s turn.

Congrats if you managed to finish your beer in time! Now it’s the next player’s turn.

4. If the coin lands on a side before you finish your drink, you have to stop drinking immediately.

Uh oh, you didn’t finish your beer in time! On your next turn, you must finish your remaining beer in the cup.

5. The Landmines drinking game is called Landmines for a reason!

Once you finish a beer can, you can use it as a landmine. So what do landmines do?

- You can slam down your empty beer can (landmine) on the spinning coin during any other player’s turn.

The player then has to finish their drink and start over from the beginning.

- Once a landmine is slammed on a coin, the landmine stays in the game.

Landmines stay in the game and act as obstacles for all players.

6. How does it end?

You can decide how many rounds to play before the game is over. Or you just continue playing until all the beer cans are gone!

Remember that while playing Landmines can be a lot of fun, always drink safely! Always be aware of how much alcohol you consume, and try not to go overboard. Let’s have fun and be safe at the same time!

Landmines Drinking Game Rules

Now that you know how to play the game, let’s dive into the rules. You can always make up your own rules, but here are some basic guidelines you can follow.

1. You must use the same hand to spin the coin and drink.

If you spin the coin with your left hand, you also have to drink with your left hand. The same goes for if you spin the coin with your right hand.

2. If a landmine is placed on the coin, it must remain in that spot for the remainder of the game.

We already discussed that landmines act as obstacles in the game. However, it is important to note that they have to stay at the exact spot where they were placed.

3. If you want a competition, the player who places the most landmines during the game wins.

If you’re feeling competitive, then why not make it a race? Whoever manages to place the most landmines during the game wins.

2. Buzz Drinking Game

Buzz is a fast-paced drinking game that gets harder and harder the longer you play it. The game may seem easy at first, but you will find yourself confused by the end!

The idea of the Buzz Drinking Game is that players will take turns counting numbers. The only catch is that certain numbers will be replaced with the word “buzz”.

How to Play Buzz Drinking Game

To start playing the Buzz Drinking Game, the group has to decide on the rule they will follow throughout the game. After deciding on a rule, the group will then decide on the first player who will start the game.

The starting player will then start the count at 1. The player to the left of the starting player will continue the count and say 2. This process will continue until a player makes a mistake with the count and forgets to say “Buzz!”

For example, say “buzz” when the following comes up:

  • Multiples of 3 like 3, 6, 9 …
  • Double-digit numbers like 11, 22, 33, 44 …
  • Numbers with 8 in it like 8, 18, 28 …

Every player in the group must follow the rules above. Whoever fails to say buzz at the proper time must take a shot or sip from their cup.

The 21 Drinking Game is a quick and easy party drinking game that you can play with minimal effort. All you need is your alcohol of choice! Similar to the Buzz Drinking Game, 21 is also a counting game that’s perfect for getting people drunk at a party!

In this game, players must count from 1 to 21. Whoever gets the “21” count will have to drink!

How to Play the 21 Drinking Game

Have all players sit down in a circle. Make sure there is enough alcohol for everyone and for several rounds.

The group then decides on the starting player who will start at the count at 1. The player to the left of the starting player will continue the count and say 2. The count will continue until a player says the number 21.

The player who gets to say 21 has to drink and gets the opportunity to make up a rule that everyone has to follow in the next round.

Whoever fails to follow the new rule has to drink, and the count will restart from the top!

Examples of rules that can be added to the game

  • Whoever gets the number 5 will have to do a dab instead of saying the number 5.
  • Whoever gets the number 6 will have to clap 6 times instead of saying the number 6.
  • Whoever gets the number 15 will have to say “quince” instead of 15.

Remember the rules will be kept for the entirety of the game, for all rounds. So the longer the game goes on, the more rules there are, and the harder and more confusing it gets!
