Drinking is tons of fun, don't get us wrong, but after a while it can get a little boring and you find yourself needing an activity.

Just like it sounds, this game is engineered to see if you can function like a sober person while intoxicated. Show your pals how skilled you are while you're hammered by preforming tasks like reciting the alphabet backwards, balancing a ball on your head and other fun tasks that will keep you and your drinking buddies laughing at each other for hours.
