“Stump” Will Be Your New Favorite Drinking Game This Spring & Summer

The drinking game “stump” is about as country as a drinking game can get. Adopted from the German game known as Hammerschlagen, Stump is played with a stump, hammer, nails, and a shit-ton of beer.

It’s my new favorite drinking game and with good reason. Basically, you get to hammer the shit out of a log while drinking beer. It’s the best. And it relieves stress. It does…

Here’s how it goes.

The Point of the game: Be the last nail standing.

1. Grab a hammer, a tree stump, nails, and some beer.

 2. Everyone stands around the stump.

3. Each person nails their nail in just until it’s sturdy.

4. You take turns passing the hammer around.

5. When it’s your turn you flip the hammer, (hopefully) catch it, and immediately without any thought slam the sh*t out of any other nail but your own.

6. If you flip it two times and catch it, you get two hits at a nail.

7. When your nail is completely under, you’re out. Each time you slam the hammer and miss a nail you drink.

Pretty simple. Pretty fun. Get the country music goin’ and you have yourself a party. If that still doesn’t make sense to you here’s a more detailed how-to video. Y’all get after it! (Shoutout to Purdue Phi Kappa Psi guys for teaching me this legendary game.)
