21st birthdays are sacred days that mark the true beginning of adulthood and more importantly when you can buy your own alcohol and drink legally. Here are three drinking games that will get the party started the right way.

Scavenger Hunt

This game is specifically fun for a 21st birthday since it requires a little more effort than most drinking games. It guarantees adventure and a night full of crazy stories. It’s pretty easy and can take as much or as little time as you want!

What you will need:

  1. Several players (the more players, the more fun!)
  2. Shots
  3. A list of all the players (so no one is forgotten!)

The aim of the game is for the birthday person to find all the players throughout the course of the night. Each participant should be somewhere different and decide whether they want the birthday person to take a shot or do a dare when they are found. The birthday person will then around on a scavenger hunt looking for all the people who are playing and whenever they are found, they have to do what that person has chosen. Either way, the game is a wild ride and the right way to start out the 21st year of life!

A variation on this could be the party guests split into several groups and you have a list of separate people or things to find and take a picture with. It gets the most interesting when the list of things and people to find is personalized and has references to other wild memories or inside jokes!

Birthday Trivia

This is a great game to be festive and truly fits a birthday celebration. It is simple and can bring out some interesting secrets or stories about the birthday person!

What you will need:

  1. Pens and paper
  2. Shots
  3. Several players

This can be done either in teams or individually. Each player writes down facts or stories about the birthday person in the form of a question and multiple-choice answers. The birthday person then reads them out and everyone has to answer what they think is the truth. The losing team or individuals take a shot and the birthday person may have some explaining to do!

Kings/ Circle of Death

This one does not specifically have to be done at a 21st birthday, because it’s that most classic of drinking games, but it’s most fun with a lot of people and is a good way to get people excited and ready for the night. The main difference between Kings and Circle of Death is how the cards are set up, but other than that they are the same!

What you will need:

  1. At least 4 players
  2. A deck of cards
  3. Drinks (Most people play with beer but you can do mixed drinks or shots as well!)

If you are playing kings, on each turn, a player picks a card face down and does whatever action it corresponds to. Circle of Death is a little more complicated. Spread the cards out face down in a circle around a drink and pick one up on each turn, without breaking the circle. Whoever breaks the circle has to drink whatever is in the middle.

These are the actions for each card but they can be personalized as well:

  • Ace: Waterfall – Everyone starts drinking and no one stops until the person before them does
  • 2: You – Whoever drew the card chooses someone to drink
  • 3: Me – Whoever drew the card drinks
  • 4: Floor – Everyone touches the floor and the one drinks
  • 5: Guys – Guys drink
  • 6: Chicks – Girls drink
  • 7: Seven Up – Everyone raises their drink for a toast and the last one drinks
  • 8: Mate – Pick a person to drink with
  • 9: Rhyme – Say a phrase and everyone else must say a phrase that rhymes with the first one. The first one to hesitate or mess up drinks.
  • 10: Categories – Pick a category and say something from that category. The first one to hesitate drinks.
  • Jack: Never have I ever – The player who draws the card says a “never have I ever ” (something they have never done). Whoever has done it drinks.
  • Queen: Questions – The person who drew the card asks someone else a question, and they then turn and ask someone else a question without answering it. This continues until someone loses by either failing to ask a question or by answering the question they were asked.
  • King: Ruler – Create a rule that everyone must follow until the next King is drawn

Have an awesome and memorable night with these drinking games! Be careful not to get too carried away and drink responsibly!

Yeah, right.

11 products that make drinking way too easy

Need to smuggle your booze? Here 19 products that will make it ridiculously easy.

Drinking. As Homer Simpson says, it’s “the cause, and solution, to all of life’s problems.” But these products make it way too easy to get drunk. So you can have the best time you’ll never remember. So Check out our slide show of the products that mkae drinking way too easy.

Fake Tampon Flasks

These fake Tampons are used to smuggle a few shots worth of booze into events in your purse. Seems like it would work pretty well, since no security guy is going to want to investigate tampons.

And this guy had a pretty awesome comment that’s worth sharing:

For years I used actual tampons to smuggle liquor, and it was a difficult learning process with trial and error. It took several tries to discover that unused tampons hold more liquor than used tampons. However, the technique was still problematic as I would absorb the alcohol too quickly. Once I realized you could siphon the booze orally, things went much more smoothly. But if you don’t add the food coloring you can get caught, and if you do add it people look at you very strangely (which doesn’t make much sense to me given the current popularity of vampires in the media).

“Smartflask”

This flask is designed to sneak booze into places in the guise of an iPhone. It also includes an integrated bottle opener on the back. It’s a good answer to the question of how can I get hammered for free in a bar?

Tie Flask

Not only do you have to wear a tie at work, but you can’t even get drunk. Well, now you can change that, thanks to this flask tie which can hide up to 8 oz of liquor, conveniently stashed.

Giant Flask

Do you look at most of these flasks and say, “Sure, it looks great, but there’s no way that’s enough to get me drunk.” Well don’t worry, there’s a flask for you too. This giant steel flask can hold up to a gallon of booze. Of course, the fact that it’s impossible to stash discreetly means that it kind of defeats the purpose of a flask.

Ring Bottle Opener

Do you have a friend who can pop open a beer bottle with a ring, and try as you might you can’t seem to replicate it? Well, these rings with a built-in bottle opener might make it a little bit easier, and give you some beer related versatility.

The Wine Rack

Just in case you’re still having trouble sneaking booze into sporting events, the winerack is yet another option. It uses two refillable bladders inside a bra you can fill with the beverage of your choice and suck it down through a hose though people around you might wonder why your bust is mysteriously shrinking.

Corckcicle

Corckicle is a device that you slide into a beer, chilling it from the inside, delivering ice cold beer much faster than sticking it in a cooler. It’s how James Bond cools his beers before he drinks 10 of them.

The Beer-Belly

Are you a man who likes the idea of the fake, wine smuggling bra, but worries that suddenly appearing in public with ample breasts would mean answering a bunch of awkward questions about when you decided to transition?

Well, the Beer Belly is your answer. Simulating the effects of the cirrhosis that accompanies morbid alcoholism, the Beer Belly lets you sneak 80 ounces of booze into dry events. Honestly, I’m tempted to mock this, but as far as smuggling large amounts of alcohol around, this is absolutely brilliant.

Fake Sunscreen Flask

You know how those prudes at the waterpark won’t let you bring in booze in the “interest of public safety”? Lame. Show them who’s boss with this sunscreen bottle that is secretly a receptacle for undercover booze smuggling.

Chill Pack

The Chill Pack lets you smuggle booze under the guise of one of those artificial ice packs. It’s pretty convincing, so the odds of anyone catching you with it are pretty slim. The only downside might be that it’s kind of small.

Margaritaville Frozen Drink Maker

This drink maker from lets you make three mixed frozen drinks pitchers at the same time. You can even set the dial for the consistency so you can make daiquiris, margaritas or even smoothies. Pretty versatile and great for parties.

How to pace your drinking and still have a good time

This guide will provide some tips to pace your drinking, so you can stay in the jolly zone without slipping into the embarrassing, sloppy zone.

I’ve written a lot about various alcoholic beverages and their charms, but enjoying yourself responsibly is more important than whatever you’re drinking. Yes, having a couple drinks can lead to a pleasant buzz or feeling more comfortable in a social setting, but sometimes a third drink seems like a fantastic idea and a fourth even better and so on, leading you to be the drunk who needs to be put to bed like a child.

This guide will provide some tips to pace your drinking, so you can stay in the jolly zone without slipping into the embarrassing, sloppy zone. But before I get started, if you have issues with alcohol moderation, find help from a doctor, not from a stranger on the Internet.

A Full Stomach

I don’t care how much light beers and Skinny Girl drink mixes tout their low calories, if you’re drinking, you are committing to ingesting a lot of calories because before you drink, you need to eat. Not like a side salad or a cup of yogurt, like a burger or, I don’t know, a big quinoa dish. The point is, when your stomach is empty, booze hits hard.

Having a full stomach won’t prevent you from getting drunk, but it will slow down the alcohol absorption into your system, making it easier to pace your drinking.

Drink Water

Drinking water won’t sober you up, only your body metabolizing alcohol over time, sometimes hours, will do that. However, drinking water will help you pace yourself. In general, it takes about 30 minutes for the full effects of an alcoholic beverage to be felt. Having a glass of water between every alcoholic beverage will give you a chance to fully feel your last drink before starting on another one.

Drinking plenty of water will also help prevent or lessen the symptoms of hangovers. Now that’s a reason to pace your drinking.

Avoid Cocktails and Shots

Technically, one serving of alcohol should have the same amount of intoxicant whether it’s a wine cooler or a Long Island Ice Tea. But with enormous glasses and friendly, heavy-handed bartenders (potentially yourself), it’s a lot harder to make it through a booze-saturated evening with your dignity drinking cocktails than if you go with something pre-bottled.

If you stick to something like bottled beer or wine in small glasses, you have a better chance of keeping your intake steady.

As for shots, I’ve met one person in my entire life who does them responsibly, and it’s not you. Everyone else is trying to get smashed. If you don’t want to be smashed, don’t do shots.

The Mental Check

Before you reach for another drink, take a moment to check-in with how you’re feeling. Look for typical signs of lessening sobriety like a desire to ride mechanical bulls, tell embarrassing, personal stories, or complain loudly about your boss who is also at this party. If you’re not an experienced drinker, there’s no harm in excusing yourself to the restroom to see if you can walk a straight line. Yes, it’s kind of odd, but who cares as long as you’re taking care of yourself?

Maybe you feel barely buzzed, you know you’re not driving that night, and you have another. That’s fine! But it’s worth taking a couple seconds before having the next drink to consider whether it’s a good idea or if you’re about to start senselessly guzzling.

No Competition

Drinking should be enjoyable, not a weird dick measuring contest about whose liver will take the most abuse. I know Americans have made binge drinking both a sign of manliness and a social bonding agent, but trying to drink as much as the other guy for the sake of it is juvenile.

People who aren’t jerks will accept that you don’t want another drink or even anything to drink. But if someone gives you shit, tell them to fuck off with their 24 pack of Keystone Light and crappy attitude.

The Buddy System

It’s your own responsibility to drink in moderation, but a buddy can be a lifesaver when you’re drunker than you think you are.

If possible, when you’re at a boozy shindig, have someone there who won’t pressure you to have another round and give you a reality check when you need to layoff. You two don’t have to be mother hens about it, but when you get water, bring your buddy a glass and vice versa. You and your buddy can agree to order food if necessary. Plus, having someone else there to tell the drink competitor to shove it is helpful, too.
