“Buffalo” Is The In-For-Life Drinking Game Your Group Of Friends Will Love & Hate

We heard that word plenty of times during CMA Fest as the game was introduced to our group. It’s very simple, but has a catch, once you’re in, you’re in… FOR LIFE. So how does it go?

The Nitty Gritty:

You must drink with your off-hand (if you’re a lefty, your off hand is your right hand, idiot), and if you don’t, and someone calls “Buffalo” you have to chug your drink, and order the drink again (you don’t have to chug the next one, unless you fuck up again).

It doesn’t matter what you’re drinking. A nice $14 old fashioned sipped with your dominant hand and someone calls “buffalo”… time to chug. People calling “buffalo” also have to be in the game. Also, a false “buffalo” call (maybe you forget the person’s hand), results in YOU having to chug your drink.

We had a lot of fun with this. Remember, once you’re in, you’re in for LIFE.
