Beer pong is the undisputed king among all beer games. An easy game that requires only two ping pong balls and a few cups. It is quite common among students and young professionals due its sheer simplicity.

2. Flip Cup
Flip cup is an interesting team based drinking game suiting both house parties and corporate parties. It is similar to a relay race that tests the speed and coordination between players in a team.

On starting the first person in the row should drink the beer and flip the cup on the table once he finishes it. Then the next person does the same and the team that finishes the entire line fastest is the winner.
Buzz is a drinking game version of the famous number counting game. This is most common among college student parties.
Game play: All the players sit in a circle. A person will start counting from number 1. The chain of number counting goes on until it reaches 7. The person who gets number 7 or multiples of 7 should say buzz instead saying the number. Similarly, for 11 and its multiples say fizz and the direction of the game reverses. Any person who misses saying buzz or fizz has to drink a glass of beer immediately.
