What Is Canoe Drinking Game?

Canoe drinking game is a fun and exciting drinking game that is played in groups. It is a perfect way to socialize and have a good time with friends while enjoying some drinks. This game requires players to have a good sense of balance, coordination, and of course, the ability to hold their liquor.

How to play Canoe Drinking Game?

To play canoe drinking game, you will need:

  • A large table
  • Two ping pong balls
  • At least six players (but the more, the merrier!)
  • Plenty of beer or any other drink of your choice

Once you have all the necessary items, here’s how you can play canoe drinking game:

The Setup:

Firstly, divide the players into two teams. Each team should have an equal number of players.

Then, place two full cans of beer on opposite ends of the table. These cans will serve as the ‘paddles’ for each team’s ‘canoe.’

Each player from both teams should stand on one side of the table behind their respective paddle/can. The two ping pong balls are then placed in the center of the table.

The Rules:

The objective of this game is to sink your opponent’s canoe by throwing or bouncing ping pong balls into their cups. If a ball lands in a cup, that cup must be consumed by the player on that team before they can continue playing.

The player with possession of both ping pong balls must yell “Go!” to start the game. Both teams then start bouncing or throwing their ping pong balls towards their opponent’s cups while simultaneously trying to protect their own cups from being sunk.

Players can only use one hand at a time and must keep their feet planted on the ground. They cannot lean over the table to block or interfere with their opponent’s shots.

The Winners and Losers:

The team that sinks all of their opponent’s cups first wins the game. The losing team must then consume all of the remaining cups on their side of the table.

Additional Tips:

To make this game more challenging, you can incorporate different rules such as:

  • Requiring players to switch hands after a certain number of throws
  • Disallowing players from using their dominant hand
  • Adding a ‘waterfall’ rule where each player on the losing team must continue drinking until the player before them stops.

In conclusion, canoe drinking game is an exciting way to have some fun while enjoying some drinks with friends. It requires skill, coordination, and most importantly, a good sense of humor. So gather your friends, grab some drinks, and get ready for a good time!
