Drinking game started in China as a form of a disciplined for the banquets, a discipline to enhance the atmosphere for drinking.  The first recorded game is one of archery, the loser drinks (kind of dangerous if you ask me).

Here is a popular game: Rod Tiger
in the order cycle of  Rod > Tiger > Chicken > Worm > Rod
the 2 players say at the same time starting with Rod-Rod then 1 of the 4 words, e.g. Chicken,  so it will be “Rod-Rod Chicken”, the player of the immediate higher ranking wins, the loser drinks.
