Guest Post: Introducing… Ang

24 Mar

As a child, playing games was all about hide and seek, snakes and ladders and making dens. Then you grew up, started university, lost all innocence and discovered drinking games!

Here are my top 5 for your enjoyment and intoxication needs:

5. Beer pong

This game will test your bouncing ball skills and your alcohol endurance. No chundering now! It is the perfect game when there’s a big group.

Tip: Vary the strength of the drinks in the game, so some terrible Lambrini, shots of vodka, whiskey, maybe some Smirnoff ice? (You get where I’m going…).

How to play: 

  1. Divide yourself into 2 teams and stand at opposite ends of a table, each group with 6 -10
  2. The first person throws a ping pong ball at the other team’s cups. If it lands in one, a person from the other team must down the contents-simples.
  3. As the cups get emptied, the remaining ones can be moved closer together.
  4. The losing team is the first one to finish all their beverages. As a punishment, they must then drink everything left in the winning team’s cups as well.

4.Never have I ever …

This is one of the easiest drinking games around, and is also a great way of finding out all your friends best kept secrets! (Although you’ll probably expose your own in the process…)

How to play: 

  1. Going round in a circle, each person takes it in turn to say “Never have I ever…” followed by something they haven’t done (the more shameful the better).
  2. Anyone who has done whatever activity is named has to consume their drink. That’s pretty much it – the fun of this game is what you learn about your friends!

3. 21’s

How hard can it be to count to 21, right?

How to play: 

  1. First player chooses the direction e.g. “1 to my left…”
  2. Players then continue counting. If anyone says two numbers e.g. “3, 4” the game changes direction, if someone says three “5, 6, 7” then it carries on in the same direction but skips a player.
  3. Anyone who screws up drinks.
  4. Whoever ends up as “21” also has to drink (It rarely gets that far!).

2. G’day Bruce

The game gets pretty complicated as everyone’s name changes and you have to remember who you’re introducing!  Aussie accents must be used at all times.

How to play: 

  1. Sit in a circle. The first person says ‘G’day Bruce’ to the person on their left, who replies ‘G’day Bruce’. The first person then gestures to the third person along, saying ‘Say g’day to Bruce, Bruce’.
  2.  The second person then turns to the third and says ‘G’day Bruce’. The third player replies ‘G’day Bruce’, and then, as before, the second person points to the fourth saying ‘Say g’day to Bruce, Bruce’.
  3. This goes on around the circle until someone makes a mistake, at which point they must drink and their name will change (start with Sheila, then Kylie, Jason, Lou, Harold, Madge and Dingbat etc. etc.)

6. Ring of Fire

There are plenty of variations on these rules (same results), but this is how I tend to play:

How to play: 

  1. Arrange a pack of cards in a small circle around a pint glass, all face down.
  2. Sit in a circle around the cards. Take it in turns to pick a card, making sure you don’t break the circle (if you do, you must immediately down your drink).
  3. For each card, there is an action:

2: You – Pick somebody to drink

3: Me – You have to drink

4: Whore (girls) – All girls in the group drink

5: Thumb master – The person with the card can wait as long as they like before performing the action. They just put their thumbs up, last person to do this has to consume.

6: Dicks (men) – All guys in the group drink

7: Heaven –  The person with the card can wait as long as they like before performing the action. They just point up to the ceiling, last person to do so has to consume.

8: Mate- Have a gulp of your drink, whilst making a friend do the same!

9: Rhyme – Whoever picks the card must say a phrase. The next person then says a phrase that rhymes and so on until someone screws up (they have to drink).

10: Categories – Similar to 9, although this time the first person names a category (e.g. cars, U.K. cities, types of beer) and everyone has to name something that fits into it. Again, whoever messes up first drinks.

Jack: Rule – The picker gets to think of a new rule for the game.

Queen: Question Master – Picking this card means you become Question Master. Ask people questions, and if they don’t answer back with a question, they have to drink. The Question Master title passes on as soon as someone else gets the Queen.

King: Drink in the cup – The first three people to pick up a King add some of their drink (whatever it is) to the pint glass in the middle – the fourth person drinks the dirty pint.

Ace: Waterfall – Fill your drinks up, then everyone in the circle starts drinking at the same time. The person who picked the Ace can continue drinking for as long as they want, but the second person cannot stop drinking until they have, the third person cannot stop until the second has and so on. Whoever picks the Ace chooses which direction the waterfall goes in.

So there you have it, 5 of what I believe to be the best drinking games around! Enjoy…

COMBI-BLOG – We won an Award! Thank You!

7 Mar

Chopstick and Chunks here! Again!

Chunks: For the second time, here’s another ‘Chopstick and Chunks’ combi-blog. Firstly we would like to thank SociopathiCuttlefish for the wonderful nomination – he gave us this.You should check out the blog, it’s rather good. We would also like to thank our parents for this award. Without them we wouldn’t be here, obviously. Just a note – we’re thanking our parents separately; Chopstick and I are not related.

Chopstick: Like any award, this one came with some rules. Though not as ridiculous as the rules set out by the Grammy organisers, mind – no boobs? No kidding. BOOBS EVERYWHERE! Ahem. So, the rules:

You are required to thank the person who nominated you, answer the 11 questions they have asked you, nominate 11 other people and ask them 11 questions in return. According to the guidelines the Liebster award should be sent to bloggers with less than 200 followers so that new bloggers can see how awesome they are!

Please be aware that the number of followers indicated in our ‘Follow’ button to the right aren’t indicative of blog followers – they’re mostly from our collective Twitter feeds. I think we currently have <15 followers? Anyway, the questions are as follows.

Why did you start blogging?

  • Chunks: I think it was one of those spur of the moment things, we were bored and thought fuck it.
  • Chopstick: Speak for yourself. I initially wanted to start up another blog because my other one is too serious; on here, I can rant. I also wanted to use this as a weight-loss discussion platform, but that sort of died. Instead, I’m happy with this.

Why did you choose WordPress?

  • Chunks: It was the platform we were most familiar with, Chopstick had her Learnolism blog on here. It seemed the easiest thing to do.
  • Chopstick: I picked WordPress because it’s a lot easier and a lot more interactive for use. Plus, BlogSpot sucked…

How do you see your life in 10 years?

  • Chunks: Honestly? At the moment I’m not sure, we had a lecture about going into teaching the other day which threw us into battle stations but teaching sounds good to me. I’d really like to do it with deaf kids but I need to learn sign language first. Dayumm.
  • Chopstick: I’ll undoubtedly be up the duff. In seriousness, I imagine I’ll be a teacher. I’ve wanted to teach for years!

What is your favourite talent?

  • Chunks: I assume you mean a talent of my own? Uh, not sure I have a talent per se. I can make this weird noise when I push air around my mouth I guess.
  • Chopstick: My favourite talent? Hm. I’d have to say I’m proud of my ability to work people up into a hyperactive frenzy. Is that a talent?

Pizza or pasta?

  • Chunks: Pasta – much more versatile.
  • Chopstick: Definitely pizza. BBQ pizza. Feel free to deliver one to me right now, actually.

Who’s your favourite blogger?

  • Chunks: Typical Blogger or can it be a Vlogger? I tend to watch Vlogs more at the moment. So i’ll go with that one – Uh, Hank and John Green me thinks.
  • Chopstick: My favourite blogger has to be the woman who runs this. Anyone who can commit to this type of lifestyle has to be dedicated, especially after a hard break-up.

What’s your favourite blog post?

  • Chunks: Post that we’ve written or…?  I’ll go with favorite post of ours. At the moment i’m quite fond of the Uni guide posts we’re working on, not only are they pretty fun to write, they’re also useful.
  • Chopstick: If we’re going for favourite posts of ours, I would have to say that my favourite blog on here is the one where Chunks talks about our NSFW Brit Awards blog. It was excellent.

When does the Narwhal bacon?

  • Chunks: At Midnight, but I much prefer Giraffes over Narwhals….
  • Chopstick: At Midnight, obviously. (REDDIT!)

What’s your favourite recent memory?

  • Chunks: Hmm a tough-y. I think it would probably have to be when Chopstick and myself were watching Top Gear. Her TV is right in front of the window and it was foggy outside. A police car drove by and we just saw the lights – which is odd, it’s never happened before. But I then got the image in my head of a police man coming out of the fog and pressing his face into the window in a “Here’s Johnnny!” type of moment. Cue laughing for a solid 10 minutes. Also a little side note: I can’t even remember how we got to that conclusion…
  • Chopstick: Yesterday, Chunks and I were discussing presentation techniques. Let’s just say, her performance is improved if she runs around in a circle, yelling “SNIFF MY FINGERS!” (IDST).

What tips would you give to other bloggers?

  • Chunks: Don’t give up with it, I must have started at least 10 blogs in the past, and only really stuck with this one and my tumblrs. Even if you don’t have all that many followers/readers or whathaveyou, the audience will likely grow in a while there’s always someone else interested in the same things as you. As Jason Nesmith says in Galaxy Quest (Awesome film by the way):

“Never give up… Never surrender!”

  • Chopstick: I agree with Chunk’s advice. I’d also recommend posting 1001 pictures of adorable cats. 

__________

Now, here’s the eleven questions we want our eleven bloggers to answer.

  1. We all live in a ______. What is the missing word?
  2. I used to be a blogging adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow in the sorely-overused meme. Where did this meme come from?
  3. If you could list 5 things you’d never blog about, what would they be?
  4. Why blogging and not vlogging?
  5. Tell us a secret your parents don’t know about you.
  6. Can you use Chopsticks to pick up Chunks?
  7. If you could have a meal with any three people living or dead, who would they be?
  8. Is Paul dead?
  9. Coke or Pepsi?
  10. What’s number one on your bucket list?
  11. Nick Cage as Everyone: what’s your favourite?

And our tags. (Nicking some from Learnolism too.)
