‘Tis the season.
Description: Each participant takes a shot of beer every minute for an hour.
Difficulty: More or less as simple as sitting quietly.
Verdict: Depends. If you have an awesome group of people that's committed to the cause and a well-curated, 60-song playlist (the song changes every minute), then this can be pretty fun. But more often, it devolves into people giving up on the “drink every minute” rule (incidentally, the only rule in the game) and complaining that the song keeps changing before their “favorite part.”
Description: You try to bounce quarters into empty cups.
Difficulty: You try to bounce quarters into empty cups.
Verdict: You try to bounce quarters into empty cups. Like, that's the game.
Description: Chug beer upside down for as long as you can, or if you're competing against someone, until your blurred peripheral vision suggests that the other person has given up.
Difficulty: It requires moderate upper body strength and the ability to breathe beer.
Verdict: Vaguely similar to waterboarding.

Watching Someone Else Do a Keg Stand While Comfortably Drinking at Your Own Pace
Description: You watch with interest as a friend or even a complete stranger is hoisted into the air by fratbros, and then cheer as they chug beer from the keg nozzle.
Verdict: Preferable to doing a keg stand, not preferable to drinking without watching a keg stand.
