The 1 Drinking Game That Isn’t Weird for Legitimate Adults to Play

This isn’t your average game of beer pong.

This is an adult-only zone.

We’ve all played our fair share of college drinking games. Whether you considered yourself a beer pong pro or a flip cup master, unfortunately, those days have come to an end. It’s time to put the ping pong balls and solo cups away, because once you’ve graduated, most drinking games are just too immature.

Though you probably shouldn’t partake in many drinking games once you’re “all grown up,” we believe that everyone deserves a little downtime once in a while. In fact, if you’re an adult working a 9 to 5 job, you may need something a step up from your average glass of wine to really take the edge off.

Luckily, this game exists. Buzz is simple overall, but in all honestly, it requires a little math. There’s a chance that most college kids are too worn out from class to bring their math skills to the party, and therefore, we’ve dubbed this game the ultimate “adults-only” drinking game.

Take a look below for the rules to Buzz, a very simple adult drinking game.

Players: Four or more

Arrange players in a circle and choose someone to start. This person will say "one." The next person (on the left or right, it 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 (seven, 17, 27 etc.)

Any multiple of seven (seven, 14, 21 etc.)

And finally, any double digit (11, 22, 33 etc.)

Example: one, two, three, four, five, six, buzz, eight, nine, 10, buzz, 12, 13, buzz, etc.


If someone messes up, then everyone drinks.
