History

Ancient Greece

Symposium scene, 475 BC
Symposium scene, 475 BC

According to Dr. Rupert Thompson of the University of Cambridge, the earliest reference to drinking games in Western literature is from Plato's Symposium The Drinking Party. The game was simple: fill a bowl with wine, drink it, and pass it on to the next person. Kottabos is one of the earliest known drinking games from ancient Greece, dated to the 5th to 4th centuries BC. Players would use dregs to hit targets across the room with their wine. Often, there were special prizes and penalties for one's performance in the game.[1] Image File history File links Download high-resolution version (1393x442, 130 KB) Description Description: Ancient Greek same-sex love. ...

Ancient China

Drinking games were also enjoyed in ancient China, usually incorporating the use of dice or verbal exchange of riddles.[2] During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the Chinese also used a silver canister where written lots could be drawn that designated which player had to drink and specifically how much; for example, from 1, 5, 7, or 10 measures of drink that the youngest player, or the last player to join the game, or the most talkative player, or the host, or the player with the greatest alcohol tolerance, etc. had to drink[3] There were even drinking game referee officials, including a 'registrar of the rules' who knew all the rules to the game, a 'registrar of the horn' who tossed a silver flag down on calling out second offenses, and a 'governor' who decided one's third call of offense.[4] These referees were used mainly for maintaining order (as drinking games back then often became rowdy) and for reviewing faults that could be punished with a player drinking a penalty cup.[4] If a guest was considered a 'coward' for dropping out of the game, he could be branded as a 'deserter' and not invited back to further drinking bouts.[4] Dice (the plural of die, from Old French de, from Latin datum something given or played [1]) are small polyhedral objects, usually cubical, used for generating random numbers or other symbols. ...

Types of games

Endurance games

The simplest drinking games are endurance games in which players compete to out-drink each other. Players take turns taking shots, and the last person standing is the winner. Some games have rules involving the "cascade", "fountain" or "waterfall", which encourages each player to drink constantly from their cup so long as the player before him does not stop drinking. Such games can also favor speed over quantity, in which case players race to drink a beer the fastest.


"Loser Buys" games

These are games played where whoever loses must buy the next round of drinks for all other players, such as Spoof. The game of Spoof is a guessing game designed to pick someone for an unpopular task, such as buying the next round of drinks. ...


Speed games

Many pub or bar games involve competitive drinking for speed and not necessarily quantity consumed.

World record

The Guinness Book of Records began to list world records for speed drinking in this category in the early 1960s.

The current record is held by Steven Petrosino, who beat charles byrne by drinking 1 liter of beer in 1.30 seconds in June 1977.[5] The record was later dropped from the Guinness book in 1991 due to concerns about litigation.[6] Suresh Joachim, minutes away from breaking the ironing world record at 55 hours and 5 minutes, at Shoppers World, Brampton. ...

Criticisms

Researchers have noted that the prevalence of heavy drinking has increased among adolescents and young adults, particularly at colleges.[7] For many college students, heavy alcohol use occurs during drinking games.[8] A review of the drinking games literature indicated that between 47% and 62% of college students participate in these games.[8] Also important is the relevance of alcohol consumption while playing drinking games and its link to alcohol-related problems.[8] It is often assumed that all drinking games pose similar health risks such as heavy alcohol use.[9] Results of current research[9] indicate that variations emerged regarding popularity, type of alcoholic beverage consumed, and participants’ intoxication level among different drinking games. Beer pong, Kings, I Never and Flip Cup were popular drinking games. Most participants who played Beer Pong and Flip Cup consumed soft liquor and many respondents who played Kings/Queens and I Never used both hard/soft liquor.[9] Participants who played Funneling, Chugging and Power Hour reported higher perceived intoxication levels compared to those who played Jenga.[9] Hazardous alcohol use was associated with the use of both soft/hard liquor during drinking games, increased drinking games participation, greater alcohol consumption while playing, and higher intoxication levels. Consumption of soft/hard liquor was related to higher alcohol consumption and intoxication levels; increased drinking games participation and elevated alcohol consumption during drinking games were associated with higher intoxication levels.[9] A lion drinking Cygnus olor (mute swan) drinking Drinking is the act of consuming a liquid through the mouth. ...

These early drinking records involved drinking beer from challenging vessels such as the yard of ale glass, which, if not correctly mastered, resulted in the user receiving a blast of beer in his or her face.
Such games are not difficult at the onset, but become much more challenging as the game continues as players become inebriated and their coordination and memory deteriorate.
For example, in the game of chess, players may have to take drinks when one of their pieces are captured (or perhaps the opposite, where they have to drink upon capturing a piece), as portrayed in the checkers-game scene of Our Man in Havana (in which the pieces are replaced with mini-whisky bottles).
