Wow, is it really Wednesday already? The week sure does go quickly when you don't have to come into work on Monday!

Of course, today being Wednesday means that the day after tomorrow is FRIDAY! And what's the best way to spend a fun Friday evening? Drinking games, of course! Here are 5 of the best (culled from our Party & Drinking department):

Snakes & Staggered

It's the classic board game...but not as you know it! It's still a frantic race to the finish, but this version will have you and your friends truthing, daring, and drinking as you vie for pole position. Oh, and you have shot glasses instead of counters, which should give you an idea of how much alcohol you'll be imbibing.

How many can play? 2-6


Drunken Jenga

Yep, it's another treasured game from your childhood that you'll never be able to look at in the same way again. We all know how to play Jenga: take it in turns to remove a block from the tower and place it on top without knocking the whole thing over and making a muppet of yourself. You obviously have to drink if you're the one who fells the tower, but you'll notice that each brick comes with a drinking challenge printed on it, so the clumsy oaf at the end won't be the only one who's trollied!

Six Shot Roulette

Most casinos would kick you out if you started playing drinking games at the roulette table. Fortunately, this handy home version of the standard black 'n' red wheel means that you don't even have to go to a casino! Place your bets, but be prepared to drink the consequences if your number doesn't come up...

How many can play? There's no limit, really, although it only comes with six shot glasses.


Drinking Table Football

If you're still having World Cup withdrawal, why not grab this nifty foosball table and add alcohol withdrawal to your list of problems? Each goal has a small shot glass rack behind it - if your opponent gets the ball in your net, well, it's pretty obvious what you have to do.

Tic Tac Shot

Even noughts and crosses has been turned into a drinking game! There are loads of different ways to play this one - you'll notice that the Xs and Os are printed on shot glasses, and what you make of that is entirely up to you. Loser drinks winner's shots? Do a shot to place that glass on the board? Do a shot to remove that glass from the board? It's your call!

How many can play? 2, although you could probably play in teams if you've got more people to accommodate.
