As I was flipping through my choices on Netflix the other night I came across That 70’s Show. I decided to watch a couple of the old episodes and came across a scene where the guys were playing quarters. It took me back to my college days and many forgetful nights. No seriously. I have no recollection of many of the nights where I was at a quarters table.
College kids and 20-somethings drinking games have evolved a long way from my days of quarters. In case you are now asking yourself, what drinking games are today’s 20-somethings playing? I am here to fill in the blanks.
Until recently, beer pong was the only drinking game that I knew was popular. However, upon attending a college graduation party for a USC grad this month I was introduced to a new game involving one team throwing a single die high into the air and letting hit a table below. The opposing team was then responsible for catching the die as it bounced off the table. If it hits the ground or the table a second time, the opposition drinks. If the opposition catches the die before it hits the ground, the die-throwing team drinks. A perfect throw is when the die hits the edge of the table and skims off directly into the ground. The game is officially known as beer die. For all the rules skim to the bottom of the article.
Now, throwing a die high up into the air is not a big athletic challenge, oh did we mention it has to go 9 feet high in the air, but catching that sucker after it hits the table requires world-class reflexes. It will literally spring off the table in a thousand different directions, or so it seems.
