Play a drinking game

There are all sorts of drinking games you can play, so take some time to think about what would be the most fun for the group you’re with. Some good places to start are by looking at your favorite TV show, movie, or just fun facts.

Take a drink when…someone says a quote from the movie/show in question, when someone mentions the title of the movie/show, etc.
Take a drink every time a character dies in a movie/tv show
Take a drink every time someone makes a mistake playing FIFA
If you’re drinking with your buddies at home, try to pick games that require close quarters – like beer pong. Websites like PartyVikings offer a variety of beer pong equipment that will make your games even more fun. If you really want to spice things up, bet on the game too.

Watch sports together
If you have a big-screen TV and a comfy couch, why not invite your buddies over to watch the big game? There are few things more fun than watching sports with friends.
Take some time before your guys’ night to think about which sport you’d like to watch. Is there a specific team or player that everyone supports? Will people be traveling into town for the event or will it be a local game? You should also think about whether you want to watch as a group or split up into different rooms and cheer at the TV.
Once everyone has arrived, grab some snacks and drinks and get ready for an exciting match.

Play for fun or play really intensely-some people are better at bluffing than others, but it always makes for a fun game night!
