REVERSE BUZZ

THIS IS A VARIATION ON THE FAMILIAR NUMBER GAME, BUZZ,
IN WHICH A GROUP OF PEOPLE TAKE TURNS COUNTING,
SAYING "BUZZ" IN PLACE OF EVERY NUMBER CONTAINING A
7 OR DIVISIBLE BY 7. THIS VARIATION IS USED AS A
DRINKING GAME, AND THE COUNTING GOES AROUND A TABLE
OF DRINKERS. HOWEVER, EACH TIME "BUZZ" IS SAID THE
DIRECTION OF COUNTING REVERSES ITSELF AND GOES BACK
AROUND THE TABLE IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. THIS
LEADS TO GREAT CONFUSION, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE PLAYERS
ARE A LITTLE HIGH, AND PARTICULARLY AT SPOTS LIKE 27-28,
WHERE TWO BUZZES OCCUR IN A ROW. THE FIRST PERSON
TO MAKE A MISTAKE MUST TAKE A GENEROUS DRINK OF BEER
AND BEGIN COUNTING AT ONE AGAIN.

THE PRINCE OF WALES

THIS IS A BEER DRINKING GAME FOR APPROXIMATELY 5-8
DRINKERS SEATED AROUND THE TABLE. ONE PERSON BEGINS
BY SAYING: "THE PRINCE OF WALES LOST HIS TAILS, TAILS,
ON NO. (BLANK." THE NUMBER INSERTED CORRESPONDS
TO ONE OF THE OTHER DRINKERS, COUNTED CLOCKWISE AROUND
THE TABLE FROM THE ORIGINATOR. THE PERSON DESIGNATED
MUST IMMEDIATELY RESPOND BY SAYING "WHO? (BLANK? NO.
(BLANK)," INSERTING HIS OWN NUMBER IN THE FIRST BLANK
AND SOMEONE ELSE'S IN THE SECOND, THIS TIME COUNTED
CLOCKWISE FROM HIM. THIS CONTINUES UNTIL SOMEONE
FAILS TO RESPOND TO HIS NUMBER, RESPONDS TOO SLOWLY,
MAKES A PRONUNCIATION ERROR, OR MAKES SOME OTHER ERROR
WHICH THE GROUP CONSIDERS UNALLOWABLE. THE PERSON WHO
MAKES THE ERROR MUST THEN TAKE A GENEROUS DRINK OF
BEER AND BEGIN THE NEXT ROUND.
