Jurassic Park: The Drinking Game

Posted by Luke

Good news, dinosaur lovers: Jurassic World is in cinemas now! To celebrate this fourth generous helping of archaeological awesomeness, we thought we'd go back to the film that started it all and use it as an excuse to get trollied

Here, then, are Beer Bong UK's unofficial drinking rules for the original Jurassic Park movie. Why not get some mates over tonight and have yourselves a dinotastic booze-fuelled film night?

  • Every time somebody dies, take a drink.

  • Whenever anyone mentions chaos theory, take a drink.

  • Also, whenever John Hammond states that he has "spared no expense", take a drink.

  • Every time a dinosaur appears on-screen, take adrink.

  • Take a drink every time you see the Jurassic Park logo (above) in the movie.

  • Y'know that famous scene when Gennaro and the kids are in the car and they notice the ripples in their water cups (caused, of course, by the massive footsteps of a Tyrannosaurus Rex)?  When you first see the ripples, all players must pick their glasses/cups up off the table. The last person to do so must finish their drink.

  • Every time you hear that one bit of John Williams's theme music (da-da-daaa-da-da), take a drink.

  • Finally, take a drink every time you want to punch Jeff Goldblum.

Happy drinking, dinosaur fans! Click here for more fun drinking games.

5 Ways to Make Beer Pong More Challenging

Posted by Luke

If you're an experienced beer pong player, you may be starting to get bored of it. Where's the fun in sinking all of your opponent's cups before they've even landed a single shot? Why bother playing if the outcome is a forgone conclusion?

Well, for those who are finding that the game of beer pong has lost its challenge, we have a few suggestions. Here are five sure-fire ways of making beer pong fun again!


1. Spin Pong

A moving target is harder to hit, right? You may be able to throw a ball into a cup that's stood there like a lemon, but will you still be such a hotshot when the cups are SPINNING?



2. Penalties for Missing

The trouble with your traditional game of beer pong is the stakes - they're just too low. There's no punishment for missing...unless, of course, you enforce your own! For example, you could decree that players must drink a cup for every miss - the game would be over pretty quickly, but it would certainly be a bigger challenge! Alternatively, your opponent could choose an embarrassing forfeit for you to perform when you miss a shot.

3. Reverse the Rules

Here's another problem with the game as it's usually played: the worse you do, the drunker you get. If your opponent has lost 5 cups and you haven't lost any, they're 5 beers drunker than you, which makes it far easier for you to sink the remaining cups and win the game. So why not switch things up a little? If your ball lands in one of your enemy's cups, YOU have to drink the contents of that cup. This means that the game gets progressively more difficult as you play - it's not too hard to land that first shot, but wait and see how difficult it is to get that last cup when you've already drunk 9.

4. Play in the Pool

Trust us, it becomes a lot more difficult to take careful aim when you're treading water at the same time!


5. Stand Further Back

Maybe - and this is just a thought - you're finding it a little too easy because you're stood too close to the table? Take a few steps back, hotshot.

Drinking Game - Black 'n' Red

Posted by Luke

Playing cards

Here's a good drinking game that's easy to learn and quick to play. A student friend of ours told us about it - she recommended playing it when the taxi is on its way and you need to finish your drinks quickly before heading to the club.

How to Play Black 'n' Red

You will need: a standard deck of playing cards, a drink for every player

  1. Sit in a circle and choose one person to be the dealer.
  2. The dealer goes around the circle, placing a card in front of each player in turn. If the card is red (a heart or a diamond) that player must drink; if the card is black (a spade or a club), the player can nominate someone else to take a drink.
  3. Continue until the whole deck has been used. Then, if you're still waiting for the taxi to arrive, pick up all the cards and start again!

We told you it was pretty straightforward. If you want to make it more complicated, you can stipulate that picture cards (kings, queens, jacks) count for two drinks, or that aces reverse the direction of play, or something like that, but we think that this game is just perfect in its simplest form!
