True American :: New Girl Style

22 Feb

If you watch the New Girl, you know exactly what I’m talking about… that game where they chug beers and climb all over everything. Sounds like fine, right?!


Game prep:

Arrange the cans of beer around the bottle of rum. The cans are Pawns of the Secret Order, the rum is the King, and the arrangement is called the Castle.

Decide on 4 Zones, and arrange platforms ( chairs, buckets, anything ) in patterns through them. The 5th Zone is the Zone with the castle. You must follow the chair path through the zones.

You can do team play or free for all play. If you choose free for all, chanting is then done in a set layer rotation. If you choose team play, only one person on your team has to reach the finish. Chanting in teams is done team rotation, with team members swapping the chant.

To choose teams, count down from 3, and on 0 raise your right hand to your forehead, displaying a number from 1 to 5. Anyone with the same number is on your team.

To start, someone shotguns a beer. This person chants first.


Someone yells “1, 2, 3, 4 JFK”. Everyone else yells “FDR”, drinks, and gets off the floor. The floor is now lava. Stepping into it causes you to lose. You can start at the beginning of the Zone you are in, or choose to sit out. If you choose to sit out, you start over from Zone 1 if you decide to rejoin.

If everyone is standing, no one is drinking or moving, the player who is next to chant may chant the name of 2 presidents. If you know something in common between the 2, you may chant it back and drink ( an example would be chanting “Abe Lincoln, George Washington” and having everyone yell back “Cherry tree”. Anyone who yelled back can now drink ). If you don’t know anything in common, you don’t get to drink. The chanter always drinks.

Players can also chant “1, 2, 3”. If this happens, do the number selection again. If your number is alone, you get to drink and move forward. If your number has partners, you don’t drink or move.

The third option is chanting “JFK” and everyone else chants “FDR” and drinks. No moving forward, unless you finish your drink.

You also get to move forward when you finish your drink.

Empty cans are all tossed to the same Zone. This is to keep the area somewhat clean. If someone throws a can into the wrong Zone, go back to the beginning of the Zone that player is in. You can use a bin as a target. Cans do NOT have to go in.

If you reach the King, you have to take a drink from the King to win. If you can’t, go back to the beginning of your Zone.

If you don’t know presidents well, you can name any two things.

If you move or drink when you’re not supposed to, you go back to the beginning of the Zone you’re in.

Players are encouraged to lie to each other. Good luck and have fun.

Happy Birthday America!!

WHEW, day was a long day!! It started with a small family gathering. We celebrated my little brothers 20th birthday, that’s right he’s officially in his twenties!! We had a quite tasty spread of the classic “bbq” foods.. hot dogs, grilled chicken, baked beans, slaw, fresh cucumbers from our garden, sliced tomatoes (also from the garden), and too many yummy desserts! Needless to say, nobody walked away hungry, and everybody had a smile on their face! I then, went to work for 7 hours… and RIGHT after work Moo and I found us a grassy spot right on the main strip in town to check out the town’s fireworks show! It was such a fun little friend date! And after that, we made our way to Rachel’s… where we remained for the rest of the evening. Such fun times with friends.
