If you guys haven't seen New Girl, you are seriously missing out.
True American is a drinking game off of this show. Here's the clip:
It's funny because it looks like absolute nonsense, right?
But, there are real rules. And they are online. For everyone to use.

This is real, you guys.
As you can see from the video, it is part drinking, part lifesize candyland with the floor as lava. Naturally, you are trying to take out the Soldiers of the Secret Order (each can of soda if we are talking nonalcoholic version) to get to the king (the glass bottle of soda). And you do so by moving spaces, which is the furniture. You can only take a can of soda when you are in the space that allows, you cannot touch the ground, you cannot put your drink down, you cannot not have a drink in your hand, or else you have to grab another.
So, basically drinking, with a loose candyland-like structure.
Sounds fun, yeah?
Well, I played it with my cousins and had a blast, so I introduced it to my FHE group at BYU.
We reserved the activity room in our building, moved the furniture to make the game board, and laid all the drinks out. The photos look like absolute nonsense, but if you read the rules, it's actually pretty easy.
It was down to the final cans and the king was exposed, but non of us could finish all the cans in our hands and drink the bottle in the middle, but one. He chugged the first, threw up, and then drank the king and won the game!
It was a pretty intense final moment, but it was great.
We were all so hungry that we bought 24 tacos and ate them all, and then 24 more.
It's college, right?
