The frog jumped into the pond drinking game is a word game that involves a lot of repetition. It does not require any planning or any additional equipments and can be played in the bar, in the rooms, at a party or just about anywhere. As long as there are alcoholic beverages of their choice, the players are good to go. This game needs two players or more and depends heavily on the player’s ability to be alert enough to know when they turn to speak and what they are supposed to say.
The frog jumped into the pond drinking game is a quick fire drinking game that involves the players spelling out the words in the title. The players in a circle go around repeating the statement “one frog jumped into the pond, plop” in turns in a clockwise manner.
All the participants sit around in a circle facing each other and the first player starts by saying “one frog”, to which the next player has to say “jumped over”, the third person says “the pond” and the last person says “plop”. The number of words said in any one game round depends on the number of players. If there are more than four players then each player can say one word from the statement instead of two. For example instead of a player saying “jump over”, one player can say “jump” and the other say “over”.
The “drinking game” then starts again but in this round the first player says “two frogs” once and not “one frog” as were said initially. The next person says “jumped over” twice now. The third one also says the words “the pond” twice and the last person says “plop, plop”. After the last two “Plops” have been said the game begins with the first player saying “three frogs” and the rest saying their words three times.
In the frog jumped into the pond drinking game the other players repeat their words according to the number of frogs mentioned by the first player. So the key is to always listen to the number of frogs being said by the player who starts every round of the game. The first player will only say the number of frogs once so it is up to the other players to keep up and know where the game is at.
The players are required to say their words immediately without hesitation, pausing for too long, mixing up their words or saying the wrong words that are not even in the given phrase or messing up in any way. Every time a player breaks any of these rules they are required to take drinks according to the number of frogs mentioned. For example if one player says their words eight times and there are nine frogs, they have to drink all nine drinks. After they have taken their drinks the game starts all over again with the first player starting with the words “one frog”.
