Edward 40 Hands

Tape a 40 ounce bottle of beer to each person’s hands, and they cannot remove the bottles until the bottles are done.

You have to do everything with the beers taped to your hands, and you will have tons of fun trying to do simple tasks like using the restroom or answering your cell without the use of your hands.

See if you can’t find a pretty girl or handsome man to help you to make the game even more fun.

Flip Cup

The game has one rule: flip empty cups before the other team does.

Make teams of five, fill five cups with beer, and see which team can flip over their empties the quickest. Make sure the consequences for the losing team are funny or embarrassing, and then don’t lose.

High Card Draw

Pull out a deck of cards between you and a bunch of friends, and each turn a card over.

Whoever has the highest card wins, and whoever has the lowest card has to drink. Make up crazy rules like "anyone with a 7 drinks 3" or "10 is the wild card".

Go nuts making up crazy rules for your New Year games.

Boxing ... with Dice

This game has nothing to do with real boxing, but simply involves two people rolling a dice against each other to see who wins.

Each round of the game lasts three minutes, and each person playing the game has a corner man who fills their shot glass as soon as it is empty. The game continues until the round is over, someone quits, or they pass out.

The game is a fast paced one that is tons of fun, though it may cease being fun for the "boxers" around shot 25 and minute 2:30.

Beer Pong

Beer pong is another classic party game, and you will find that you can get pretty good at it with practice. Simply set up ten glasses of beer at each end of a ping pong table, with one or two players on each side.

Each player has to take a turn bouncing the ball on their opponents side and getting it into the other person’s beer cups. Once the ball goes into a cup, the owner of the cup has to drink it. The game is played until one player quits or all the cups are empty.

Master of the Thumb

This game is actually a lot of fun, and you can play it at any time during the evening. The game simply involves one person being "The Master of the Thumb".

His one responsibility is to place his thumb on the table, and everyone else around him needs to place their thumbs on the table. The last person to place their thumb on the table has to take a shot, but his consolation prize is that he then becomes the Master of the Thumb and control the game.

Spoons Fun

Spoons drinking game. Picture of spoons in a circle.Spoons is an awesome game similar to musical chairs, but with cards and spoons instead of musical chairs.

Play in groups of 6 to 9, and use exactly one spoon less than there are players. Set the spoons in the middle of the table or floor, and have all the players sit around the spoons.

Give each player four cards, and place the deck in front of one player. Have that player draw cards and pass them on to his left and around the circle, and each player will look at the passed cards in order to make sets of four.

Once someone has a set of four, he should grab a spoon.

Once a spoon has been grabbed, everyone has to grab a spoon. There will be one spoon less than players, so there will always be one slow sucker taking a shot after each round.

I Never Did That ....

Go around the room and tell people something you "never" did in the last year. You can make stuff up, and people have to guess if you are telling the truth or not. This game may get to be a bit embarrassing, but it can be a great way to bond with the other drunk people in the party.
