Bringing American culture closer to new immigrants
Drinking games are extremely popular in America. The variety of paper and online resources à la “best American drinking games”, etc. is the best proof to it. Let us take “beer pong” as an example, the phrase itself has become a part of shared cultural knowledge. The very fact that Wikipedia has an informative article about beer pong says a lot.
Some people say that it’ s fun only for college kids but I tend to think otherwise. Or, at least, I wouldn’t restrict drinking games’ lovers to a specific age/social status category. You never know:)
