I am looking for a quick easy fun game to play while drinking.
Think the beer pong of the boardgames.

Maybe some kind of racing game would make for a good time?

Skull is by far my favorite game to break out while drinking, it plays up to 6 which is always a plus.

For racing you can grab a copy of Rush n' Crush super cheap from miniaturemarket. The arcade mode is good mindless fun.

Nothing beats Loopin' Louie
The first to lose all three chickens drinks, then start a new round. Where Im from its so popular, that its not considered a kids game

Less partyish: The Red Dragon Inn, needs some time to prepare all those drinks though

Wish they had a drinking version/expansion to We Didn't Playtest This At All. Seems like it already goes great with drinking.

Probably say the same thing about Talisman.

BEST 2-PLAYER

Battle Line - Replace the pawns with shot glasses. When you win one, you drink.

MULTI-PLAYER IDEAS

Qwixx - Every time you roll snake-eyes or box-cars, you take a shot.

Kemet - Whenever you win an attack, you take a shot. There's a lot of battles in this game.

Man, these are some pretty good ideas. Maybe I should take up drinking.

Hey,

as a racing game, I would recommend Fast Flowing Forest Fellers for 3-5 players.
Plays quick and easy, you can push othe rplayer into bad places, it's fun.

Ave Caesar or Powerboats or Breakaway Rider are other light racing games.

Lifeboats would also be fun. Every time one of your pawns drowns, you drink.

Are you looking for a drinking game or a game to play while you drink?

The Resistance is a great game and its even more fun if you are a little tipsy You see spies everywhere

(Im sure you can add some drinking in it too, everyone who goes on a mission has to have a shot)

What makes racing a good theme for drinking? I have Rush n Crush and I love arcade mode. How do you make it into a drinking game?

Not in line with your racing idea, but by far my favorite game to play while hanging around with a few drinks is The Resistance. It keeps everyone constantly engaged and talking, but requires almost no actual manipulation of bits. And as people loosen up, the accusations fly, and things become wild but still a lot of fun.

There's a drinking version of Liar's Dice that's popular all over China. It's so common that I've never learned the name for it -- it's just called "The Dice Game." The rules seem about the same as Liar's Dice, with the player to the left deciding whether they want to raise the bid or challenge the player to their right on their bid. Whoever loses a challenge drinks. No dice are taken away, though I suppose you could still do this if you are interested in moving towards an end-game with a definite winner.

In my experience, it works really well as a casual social game with a big group, since you technically only have to pay attention when the play passes to the player on your right. On the other hand, I've also played it really tense and cutthroat between 2-3 players.

My gang's all time favorite game for inebriated play is Jungle Speed. Its fun to play as is with a bottle of tequila on hand. Easily lends itself to house rules for drinking. Plus, it gets increasingly dangerous as the game and the drinking go on -- fun!

Others that have worked:

Catacombs -- drink to celebrate victory. Drink to simulate the effects of being knocked about.

The Red Dragon Inn -- it's a game ABOUT drinking to begin with. Just drink for real when it makes sense.

Formula D -- drinking and driving is generally frowned upon, of course, but you did say you wanted racing. Drinks when you are overtaken. Drinks per lap to anyone behind the leader at the end of the lap. Drinks when you make a pit stop.

King of Tokyo -- Drink when you leave Tokyo.

Pandemic -- Drink at the end of the round because that's what people would be doing every evening in this terrifying scenario.

Telestrations -- Silly party game to begin with. Made sillier by alcohol.

Zombie Dice -- Good for when you are already drinking. Easily house-ruled.

Liar's Dice -- we play Perudo. It feels like a bar game to begin with. Drink when you lose a die. Drink when you lose your last die (nothing else to do until the end of the round at that point anyway). Slamming dice cups on the table is fun.

...Not that I've given this subject any thought.

Space Cadets is a game that really seems suited for a drinking crowd.

I have been considering playing this with friends once I can get my hands on it and simply adding one extra egg timer step (Captain announces 30sec to drink up!).

Replace the spell with a shot that gets passed round the table and doubled etc.
