Yes, there are some amazing drinking games out there that result in some serious fun, and some serious competitiveness. Beer pong, stack cup, beer ball, card games, you name it. However, there is an easy winner when it comes to drinking games for a number of reasons. Even though you could honestly consider it more of a sport, beer dye is the easy favorite atop the list. Here’s why:
Beer dye combines a variety of things and honestly makes it a pretty unique game. It definitely takes some more skill than playing a game of beer pong or cards, but that’s what makes it fun. You need to have the skill of actually throwing the dice, while also having the skill of playing defense and catching it. This allows for a pretty large margin for error (unless you’re me), and a pretty small chance of sinking the dice in the cup. So, when a throw does get sunk, it’s hype as fuck. Beer dye also tends to get extremely competitive too. Games can change in a matter of an instant and things always get heated.
I also think that beer dye provides the most perfect vibes you could ask for. For one, you’re playing outside, not in some shitty apartment or basement. You can play literally anywhere you can get a table to. In a yard, on the beach, in the driveway, it doesn’t matter. If you’re doing it right, you also get pretty damn drunk too. I know some people’s concerns with dye are that you don’t drink enough alcohol while playing. If you feel that way, then that’s totally on you. Implement a rule where you have to finish a beer every 4 points or something, that’s what we do.
I just don’t think that there is anything much better than running dye with your boys. Picture this: It’s 70 degrees out and the sun is just starting to set, adding an orange tint to the sky. You’re in what feels like the most intense moment of your life playing in this dye game, but at the same time, you’re hammered and having an amazing time. There is a crowd surrounding the table, and the speaker underneath it is blaring deep house. Everyone is fired up and excited to go out in a few hours and keep the momentum going.
It’s truly a work of art, and when I think back, some of the best days/nights I’ve had start with a game of dye.
