Don't say Five or Seven! Crap I just said Five. Crap I said Seven too... Damn I keep saying them!
With a 6 sided die you and your teammate must sky rocket your shot 9 ft in the air and outscore your opponent while also abiding by the rules. This can really get you jacked up. Read very carefully as it 's difficult to understand at first. However it is definitely very fun and very interesting.
What You Need:
1 six sided dice (more recommended) 1 Rectangular Table (8x4 recommended) 4 red cups (or pint sized glasses) 4 Players 4 chairs optional (arm less chairs recommended) A large area
Nobody can say the number "five" or "seven" and instead you must say "buzz" instead of 5 and "bizz" instead of 7.
One player from the first team goes then one player from the second team goes.
After that, the first team goes again and the other teammate gets to go.
When it is your turn you want to toss your die 9 feet into the air and plunk it into your opponents cup.
Chairs are placed on all four corners of the table and the cup you are in front of is your cup.
The cups are placed on the corners of a standard table. If on a longer table place the cups one hand length and one hand width away from the corner. On extra long tables place cups one forearm length and one hand width away from the corner.
The oldest player shoots first to start the games no matter what. Even if a winning team is playing again.
You can only throw underhand from below the table, or over hand above your head like a basketball.
Before starting a game teams must decide, as a group, how many scores constitute drinking an entire cup.
The common rule of thumb for this is called "3 to boat"which means after 3 drinks the opposing team's cup should be empty. That way the team finishes their beers at the same time,
Drinking and Scoring:
If someone says 5 or 7 they must take a drink. You can score 1 point for succesfully throwing your die up in the air so that it lands on the opponents side of the table. The point only counts if it bounces off the table and the opposing team can't catch it.
Players can only catch dice with one hand! If the dice are caught with two hands or up against your body, the shooting team still gets a point.
You cannot reach over the table to catch dice before they fly off the table. You also cannot volley or smack the dice back up into the air or back onto the table. This prevents people from breaking things and keeps the game fair.
If a die is thrown and touches your cup, your team must take one drink.
If you throw the die and completely miss the table then your team must take one drink.
After a die is thrown if it lands and stays on the table then the shooter must drink. So you want to try and get the dice to bounce off the opponent's edge of the table.
However if the die lands on the table and is a "Bizz!"then no one has to drink.
Every now and then dice can land in your cup. When this happens to your cup then your team must finish the rest of your drink.
Now if you finish your drink and roll the die out onto the table. If it stays on the table and a 5 is rolled, the opposing team must finish their drink and they lose 1 point.
Sometimes your team will get lucky and a die will bounce off the rim of your cup. If your team can catch it with one hand then the shooting team has to drink one time and they lose a point.
How To Win:
The first team to score Buzz points is declared the winner. However you must win by two points which means the game can go into overtime.
Remember that there are many variations to this game! One day we will include them all here below.
