Everyone knows that drinking games can make or break a party and honestly, some classics are starting snooze up our ragers.  So if you’re sick and tired of the old shenanigans, here are three new crazy drinking games you definitely have to try.

1. True American

If you’ve ever seen the show New Girl, then you have probably heard of the fictional drinking game, “True American”…well, fictional until now. As “50% drinking game and 50% life sized candy land” (as said in the show,) this game gets really fun, really fast.

How it Looks

Start by putting one bottle of liquor in the center of the room and surround it completely by a “beer castle”.

There are four zones of the room with five cushions in each zone that players can stand on “the floor is made of lava” style.

Be the first person to reach the liquor. Once all of the beer is gone, take a sip from the bottle.

How to Play

  • Players shotgun a beer. Whoever shotguns the fastest gets the first turn.
  • First turn player yells “One, Two, Three JFK!” Others respond “FDR!”. Game begins.
  • Players take turns advancing through the cushions. You may never be caught without a beer or with an empty can and must move clockwise on the cushions to reach the center “castle”.

2. Kastenlauf

Not only are Germans great at making beer, but also at finding out clever ways to drink it.  The German drinking game “Kastenlauf” or “Bierkastenrennen”, which literally means “beer crate running”, combines drinking beer and athletics making it a lethally fun way to get trashed. So grab your favorite IPA, a big crate, your best friend and get ready to run.
