BeerGammon Drinking Game

All About Cocktails   Classic Drinking Games



Another adaptation of board games, this one obviously to Backgammon. A pretty tame game, that just gets tamer. Supplies: you and a partner who wants to play Backgammon, the game itself, and some beverage.

Play the game as usual. Any time one of your pieces gets sent to the bar, drink. As well, each time you take a piece off the board, drink again. Pretty straightforward.


Drinking is based on a full 12 ounce beer. The beer is divided into six parts (two ounces each).

Every time your opponent rolls doubles, you do a corresponding number of drinks. For example, for double twos you would drink two parts of a beer (four ounces). Double sixes is a full beer, etc.

The loser owes one full chug (12 ounces).

Being gammoned is two chugs, backgammoned is three chugs, and a bargammon (very rare event, but it happens) is four chugs.
