The Easiest Poker Drinking Game You’ll Ever Play

Poker and drinking games are a natural fit, as it’s easy enough to break out a deck of cards the next time you and your friends have a hankering to play drinking games. “Asshole” is one of the best poker drinking games out there but it’s a little tricky to learn, and sometimes the complicated rules can get in the way of getting your drink on — which is kind of the point of any drinking game.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy drinking game, give Indian Poker (also called Blind Man’s Bluff) a whirl. It’s just about the easiest poker game in the world to play and simple to modify into a drinking game. Since it just involves each player being dealt one card you can also play with a large group without worry of running out of cards, so there’s no limit to how many people can play unless you have more than 52 people (at which point the party is likely into full swing anyway with no need for drinking games).

As far as the rules, everyone is dealt a single card, which they place on their forehead without looking at it, so that every other player can see the card. Each player sees everyone elses cards but not their own; be sure to pull curtains over windows and hide any reflective surface that might tempt some players to cheat. After everyone checks out all the cards, the dealer counts to three. If you want to stay in and think you have the highest card, you keep your card on your forehead; if you don’t think you have the highest card, you drop your card on the table.

If you fold and drop out, you take one drink. If you stay in and win, congratulations, no drink for you. If you stay in and lose, though, that’s three drinks. If you stay in and tie with another player for the highest card, every player who ties for high card has to chug their entire drink. While you won’t need the same poker skills and strategy as if you were playing poker games online, you can still bluff, talk other players into folding, etc., as you don’t necessarily have to have the highest starting card to be the winner in the end.

Oakland Coliseum Large vs Small Beer

If you saw our post about the Qwest field beer cup issue then you know what you’re in for with this video. Apparently Qwest Field isn’t the only stadium that is ripping people off when they buy a large beer. The guy in the video above has a small and a large cup, essentially the small is $5 for a beer and the large is $8 for a beer. The small beer is filled almost to the top with water, but once he pours it into the large cup you realize that it’s almost exactly the same amount of liquid to fill the large as it is the small, yet it was $3 more… Now in the case of Qwest Field they have come out and said that they were “accidentally” using the wrong cups for the small beers so in fact those people who ordered a small were getting a better deal… somehow I don’t believe that. It sounds to me like they just got caught so had to come up with some excuse to spin it their way.

If you happen to check out a sporting event at a stadium, arena or wherever, get your hands on a small and large beer cup and see if you got ripped off. I have a feeling this is more widespread than just these 2 stadiums.

Pong Deck Review

pong deckIf you’re looking for a way to spice up your beer pong games then this is exactly what you need. The premise and execution is extremely simple, yet it adds a layer to the game that it seemed to be missing before. After playing a few rounds of pong using the Pong Deck cards I’m not sure that we’ll ever go back to the normal way again.

Our first thought when we saw Pong Deck was “How did we not think of this?”. It’s just that simple of an idea that you’d think would have been around since the invention of beer pong itself, but apparently it took a couple kids from Chicago to make it a reality. The game comes packaged in a very simple, yet effective, hockey puck-style container that holds your entire Pong Deck, Deck. Each deck contains 50 cards which are made up of drinking cards and action cards. There are 18 unique cards spread throughout the deck and can range from having to do a hook shot on your next throw all the way to just straight up chugging a beer. The cards themselves appear to have a protective coating to them which prevents them from getting damaged if they get wet, which is bound to happen. This also makes them extremely easy to clean if you need to.

The game is as easy to play as it sounds. While you’re setting up your cups for a game of beer pong, just place 1 card from the shuffled deck under each cup, once a player hits that cup on other side of the table, the other team must do whatever the card says…. that’s it! As long as you know how to play beer pong and can read, then this game is extremely straight forward. None of the cards are confusing and the artwork on them is pretty cool.

We had a blast testing these out this weekend, it’s amazing how one action card can change the whole dynamic of the game. Like I said above, I’m not quite sure how we’ll ever go back to playing normal beer pong. Pong Deck is a cheap, great way to spice up a game that can get old after a while. So with that said, we can’t recommend this enough, so head on over to pongdeck.com and pick up your own deck for as low as $9.99.

Finish 3 Beers Before Your Friend Finishes 3 Shots

Ok, so the title is a little misleading as unless you’re friend can’t take shots and you can chug beer like it’s your job, then there’s most likely no way you’re going to be able to finish 3 beers before your friend can take 3 shots. This is actually more of a bar trick than actually doing it.

The Setup: First bet your friend that you think you can drink 3 full glasses of beer (must be pint glasses) before he/she can finish 3 shots. The only rules are that you are not allowed to touch each others glasses/shots and they must wait to take the first shot after you’ve finished with your first glass of beer.

The Trick: Take your time drinking your first beer, your buddy can’t take their first shot until it’s gone anyways so there’s no rush… Once you finish the beer take your pint glass and turn it over, upside down, over top of your friend’s last shot glass… since the rules state that you cannot touch each others glasses you win since he won’t be able to take the last shot due to the fact that he can’t get to it without touching your glass…

Make it interesting and bet the round of drinks on the trick.

Turn Old Beer Bottles Into Drinking Glasses

If you’re looking for a unique way to stock your cabinets with drinking glasses and don’t want to spend a lot of money… and you want to get drunk on top of it, then this trick is for you.

It’s extremely simple to do if you have the right tools, those tools being the following: a piece of string, an empty beer bottle, nail polish remover, a lighter, sandpaper and a sink/bucket full of cold water.

What you’re going to do is take a string and tie it around the bottle where you want to cut it, do this before you soak it so that you can get the correct fit. Next you’ll soak the string in the nail polish remover and place it around the bottle. Light the string with the lighter and pick up the bottle, slowly rotate it around in a circle like you see in the video above. After 30 or so seconds, dunk the top of the bottle into the water and the glass should “pop” from the sudden change in temperature, thus breaking the bottom at it’s weakest point, the place you just heated up.

Before you use your new glass to drink out of you’re going to want to sand down the top edges so you don’t cut yourself when drinking out of them. The video above doesn’t show the sanding part, but hopefully you’re smart enough to know that you’ll cut the hell out of your face if you try to drink out of the freshly broken bottle.

This trick also works with wine bottles (or any bottle really), so if you want to do something creative with those this will work also, although it may require a bit longer burn on the string to heat the bottle a bit more.
