    Default Why do drinking games suck?

    OK, this is going be half rant/half meaningful post, but...

    I gotta say I'm pretty fucking sick of being at parties (and bear in mind, I'm a pretty strong E and enjoy being around people in general) and people wanting to play some arbitrarily made up nonsense drinking "games" with no decisions.

    Like this shit called "Circle of Death" that my roommates and their friends always want to play. It consists basically of drawing random cards from a deck and then taking x number of drinks based on whatever system.

    It's not the drinking that bothers me--I'm all for drinking--but whenever someone suggests such bullshit I always have to ask, "Why don't we either just DRINK without bothering with this crap, or play an actual game and make up some rules to incorporate drinking into it?"

    This happened just a few minutes ago...small social gathering at the house here, and roommates' friends are all about the CIRCLE OF DEEEEATH or other nonsense game with NO FUCKING DECISIONS! If you just want to drink, fuck the game and start chugging beers. Knock yourself out, literally! But if you want to play a drinking game, at least make it some kind with meaningful decisions so that it's at least vaguely interesting while you're in the process of getting hammered. I find that this gets more and more fun the more drunk people get, because the poor decisions everyone starts to make are an endless source of amusement for most people.

    Games are supposed to be fun because you have some kind of control over what happens, right? Some kind of decision leads to some kind of semi-predictable result, and that's why it's entertaining, right?

    I suggested drinking Hearts--play Hearts and have everybody take a drink for every point they pick up. That way, not only do you get the enjoyment of drinking, you also get the enjoyment of playing an actual GAME which has strategical decisions. I'm not suggesting that we play drinking Bridge or some other really complex game where the complexity would ruin the simple fun, but what is with these stupid nonsense "games" like Circle of Death where we're just making up excuses to drink? You don't need an excuse to just drink! If you don't want to play a game, then forego the bullshit, maybe throw on a movie or something and just drink already!

    Maybe this is just me being a silly NT because I love strategy games, but I absolutely can't stand so-called "games" that aren't actually games at all because they contain no decisions. Why don't we just start flipping a coin repeatedly? Heads I drink, tails you drink...heads I drink, tails you drink...heads I drink, tails you drink...seems awfully pointless.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I always suck at Meiern. You need to roll two dices but dont show the result. Then you tell the next one in row a number starting with the highest value. Like "32", if you rolled 2 and 3. After 65 the next highest is a "11", then the "22"... The highest is the "21" whats called a Meier.

    The thing is you can lie about your number and the next one in row has to guess if you were lieing or he believes you, then he has to beat your roll.

    I need like 2 rounds of this game and I am under the table, completly drunk .

    Yeah, that drinking game sounds really lame. Generally I don't even bother with games. After all just drinking is far more direct. However one time we played a Super Smash Bros. Brawl drinking game. That was pretty fun. Everyone played on random and the loser had to drink. It was entertaining. I learned the flaw in perfecting one character and ignoring the rest.
