'Buzz' Drinking Game Instructions

Players: 4 - No limit

Arrange players in a circle and choose someone to start. This person will say "one". The next person (on the left or right, doesn't matter) says "two" and so on, counting up.

When someone hits one of the following numbers, they must say "buzz" instead of the number, and then the direction of the circle reverses:

  • Any number with a seven in it (7, 17, 27 etc)
  • Any multiple of seven (7, 14, 21 etc)
  • And finally, any double digit (11, 22, 33 etc)

Example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, buzz, 8, 9 10, buzz, 12, 13, buzz, etc.

If someone messes up, then everyone drinks! The game is supposed to go fast so pausing for too long counts as messing up.

This game was submitted by one of our stupendously charismatic readers, Kevin Murphy. May he never run out of cheer.
