If you party every weekend (as one does) you know that beer pong can get really old, really fast. Nothing wrong with it – it just seems to be the only game anyone knows.

But all that’s about to change.

There’s a great big world outside the realm of solo cups and ping pong balls. There are games that require skill, and games based solely on luck. There are games for beer drinkers, and games for liquor drinkers. There are games you can play with friends… and a few you could (but probably shouldn’t) play on your own.

So whether you’re trying to get drunk as fast as possible, or looking for a game that can take up a whole evening, we’ve got you covered.

Here are 11 games (besides beer pong) that are sure to get you blitzed.

1. True American

If you’ve ever watched New Girl, you know what True American is – or at least, you’ve heard of it. The rules aren’t exactly clear from the show, but the characters notoriously get wasted every time they play.

From what we can gather, players take turns trying to win moves in order to navigate the tables, chairs, and cushions which are your only escape from the molten lava floor. At the center of the game is a castle made of a bottle of alcohol and many beers.

As players move around the game area, they remove beers and drink them. Once all of the beers have been removed, the first player to reach the bottle of alcohol, finish their beer, and take a swig from bottle, wins the game.
