It is Saturday, so in celebration I thought we should have a list of drinking games. These will provide you with hours and fun and a massive headache.


Warning: Binge drinking can lead to excess fun.

No, let’s take a look at Drinking Games to try this weekend

1. Flip, Sip, or Strip!


This simple game can be played with as few as 3 people, but is better with 5 or more.

How to Play:

Flip a coin and call heads or tails whilst it is still in the air. If you guess right, you can either pass the coin to your right or you can choose to flip again. Another successful guess lets you either flip again pass the coin to anyone of your choosing. However, any wrong guess means that you must pass the coin to your left and either take a drink OR take one article of clothing off (anything that is a pair – such as socks- counts as one item).

If you guess right 3 times in a row, you may retrieve an article of clothing and put it back on. The coin is then passed to your right.

Coins do not have to be caught in the air – if they are, don’t slap the coin onto the back of your hand – play it as it lands in your hand. If the coin isn’t caught in the air, play it as it lands.


2. Quarters


Requirements: All you need is 2 quarters, 2 shot glasses, and a mug.

How to Play:

Start by setting up in a circle, fill the mug about halfway then pass out the shot glasses, with a quarter. It’s best to start the shot glasses across the table from each other.

Once you start you just try and bounce your quarter into the shot glass. Once you make it in you pass it to your left. If you make it in on your first shot then you can pass it to whoever you want.

Players race around the circle trying to pass off the shot glass before the other one laps them. If the person to your right makes the shot before you do then they have to put their shot glass in yours to end the round.

Next, put one shot glass upside down and stack the other on top to form a tower to shoot at. You get one last shot to make it. If you make it the person who capped your shot glass has to drink what’s in the mug in the middle. If you miss you drink.

The person that drank then fills up the mug to whatever height they want, passes the shot glasses to whoever they want (except for two people next to each other) and a new round begins.

With more people, throwing in one or two extra glasses/quarters makes things a lot more interesting.

3. Fubar


Requirements: One deck of cards and minimum of 5 Players

How to Play:

First, shuffle a full deck of cards.  Next, spread the face down cards across the table, and within reach of all the players.  Now the cards are ready to go, so make sure each player has a drink.  You’re going to drink a lot, so shots or hard liquor might get pretty intense.

 Figure out who is going first, then play clockwise around the table.  The first player draws a card from the table and shows it to the other players.  Different cards represent different actions (see below).  Players only draw one card per turn.

What the Cards Mean:

  • Ace – Take One Drink
  • 2 – Take Two Drinks
  • 3 – Take Three Drinks
  • 4Questions.  Player looks at another player, and asks them a question.  That player must then answer that question with a question.  This continues until someone messes up.  The player who screws up has to drink. Each player can question any other player, not only the person who delivered the question to him/her.  Players must make eye contact to be clear who is being questioned.  Any questions can be asked, as long as they are actually questions and not answers.
  • 5 – Give Five Drinks.
  • 6I never. The player who chose the 6 says something they have never done.  Anyone who has must drink.
  • 7Thumbmaster.  Whoever draws the 7 can choose any time to place their thumb on the table. The last player to place their thumb on the table after the Thumbmaster has to drink. The Thumbmaster retains this power until the next Seven is drawn.
  • 8Categories. The player chooses any type of Category.  Then, in rotation, players must say something in that Category.  For example, “Colors”:  Blue, Red, Orange, Yellow, etc.
  • 9Rhyme: Player says a word.  Other players must, in rotation, say words that rhyme with the original word.  The player who messes up has to drink.
  • 10Social. Everyone drinks!
  • Jack – “Assholes” Drink.  Guys have to drink.
  • Queen – “Bitches” Drink.  Girls have to drink.
  • KingWaterfall. Everyone starts to drink.  The player who drew the card is the leader.  Players must drink until the person in front of them stops.  Any player who stops drinking too soon loses, and must drink again.

With a name like FUBAR, you should be able to tell that this game isn’t for the casual drinker.  This game involves a lot of drinking. Play with caution.

4. Asshole


Also known as Bum.

This is a slightly more complex game than the usual drinking game, but can be a load of fun when mastered. It requires a minimum of 5 people to play.

The first hand is used to determine everyone’s rank during the following hands. Deal out all the cards. The person to the left of the dealer starts off. The object of the game is to get rid of all your cards. When starting you can lay down any card or cards with the same face value. The person following you must lay down a card of equal or greater value. They must also use the same amount of cards as you did. If you lay down two 9’s then they would have to lay down two of something equal or greater. If the player lays down the same card as the previous player then the next player is skipped and must drink. Also if you can’t play any of your cards than you must skip and drink. Cards are cleared if everyone skips or a two is played.

Play continues like this until all the cards have been played. After the first hand is when the fun really begins. There is a ranking system which is as follows: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Asshole. Whoever goes out first becomes the new President for the next game, the second person becomes the Vice-President, etc… For the following rounds, anyone who ranks higher then you can tell you to drink whenever they want to.

Special Rules:
The Asshole must always deal and clear the cards. Also the Asshole must give the two best cards in their hand to the President. The President gives the two worst cards in their hand to the Asshole. If the President remains President for three consecutive rounds they can create special rules, such as the word “drink” cannot be used. If these rules are broken then the offender must drink.

5. Edward 40 Hands


- Sponsored Content -

Edward 40 Hands is a drinking game that is funnier than anything else. It’s more a personal challenge to drink the 40oz’s that are taped to your hands so that you can function.

After 40oz’s are taped to your hands, rendering them useless for anything other than lifting that delicious malt beverage to your mouth, you are playing Edward 40 Hands. You win by drinking both before your bladder explodes, freeing up your hands and allowing you to piss.

On a side note, it’s not against the rules to have someone of the opposite sex help you if you need to relieve yourself before freeing up a hand.

6. Power Hour


An oldie, but a goodie.

How to Play:

Simple, just take a shot of beer! Every Minute! For an Hour!

7. California Kings


Requirements: One deck of cards and minimum of 4+ Players

How to Play:

To start California Kings, spread cards face-down around a large cup. Draw in clockwise order. A “drink” is a normal sip.

Ace – Social – He/she who draws proposes a toast and everyone drinks.

2-6 – Black (Clubs & Spades) – Consume the card’s value in drinks.

2-6 – Red (Hearts & Diamonds) – Give the card’s value in drinks. The total may be split-up between multiple players.

7 – Waterfall – Everybody begins to chug. You can’t stop until the person to your right has stopped. He/she who draws may stop first.

8 – Thumb Master – He/she who draws puts his/her thumb on the table. The last person to do so drinks.

9 – Rhyme – He/she who draws says a sentence. The person to his/her left must rhyme with the last word in the original sentence. This continues in clockwise order. Rhyming words may not be repeated. If you repeat a word or can’t think of one, you drink.

10 – Category – He/she who draws thinks of a category, like “Simpsons Characters.” Then, he/she says one, like “Homer.” Then, the person to his/her left must think of another one, like “Bart.” This continues in clockwise order. If you repeat an item or can’t think of one, you drink.

Jack – Guys drink – A toast is often included.

Queen – Ladies drink – A toast is often included.

King – We don’t call it “kings” for nothing. He/she who draws the first, second and third king pours some of his/her drink into the “large cup” and comes up with a rule that must be obeyed for the rest of the game, like “no showing your teeth” or “no saying ‘drink,’ ‘drank’ or ‘drunk’.” Anyone in violation of a rule drinks. He/she who draws the fourth king must POUND the contents of the “large cup.” Drawing the fourth king marks the end of the game.

Note: Drawing the fourth king is a fate worse than death if there are a combination of beverages in the “large cup,” like beer, wine cooler and vodka. In fact, some players insist that only beer be poured into the cup; but they don’t have the love for the game.

8. Flip Cup


You’ll need 6-12 people (divided into 2 teams) to play Flip the Cup, along with some beer (obviously), some plastic cups and a long table.

How to Play:

Line the 2 teams up on opposite sides of the table, and get every player to fill their cup with about 2 shots of beer. When everyone is ready, the command is given to GO! and the 2 players at the head of the table down their drink. As soon as they do this, they must then flip their empty cup by placing it right way up halfway off the edge of the table. They must then place their fingers under the part hanging off the table, and flip the cup so that it lands upside down on the table. As soon as the cup is flipped, then the next player downs their drink and flips their cups, and so on down the line.

The first team to have all players drink and flip their cups wins the game.

9. Boxing


The Boxing drinking game is for heavy drinkers, and is basically cutout for the asshole that always wants to brag that they can drink more than everyone else. Luck dictates who drinks, but you go until you forfeit, so it’s a great proving ground for big talkers.

Requirements: Stop Watch (phone apps work too), 2 shot glasses, 2 Dice

How to Play:

Two players step up as boxers and prepare for one on one battle, and the other two people become the corner men for one of the two “boxers”. The two boxers sit at opposite sides of a table, and each take a die. The function of the corner men is to fill up empty shot glasses after a shot (punch).


Once the Boxing drinking game is setup, the two opponents begin the game, and one of the corner men starts the stopwatch. The suggested round time is 2 minutes, and boxers get a minute of rest between rounds. During a round, the boxers each roll their die, and whoever throws the lower roll drinks their shot, followed by their corner man refilling it.

This drinking game is meant to be played at a rapid pace, with the intention of forcing one of the two boxers to quit from not being able to drink anymore, or to puke (instantly disqualifying them). Boxing is a great way to prove who the bigger, better man really is when it comes to rapidly consuming alcohol.

10. Beer Pong


First, you’re going to need a ping-pong table and a pack of ping-pong balls. You’ll also need a package of 16-oz plastic cups; Red Solo cups are perfect. You will need to set up two formations of 10 cups on either end of the ping-pong table. The cups should form a triangle, similar to how balls are racked at the beginning of a game of pool. Fill each cup with roughly three to four ounces of beer.

You can play beer pong in teams of one or two players. Each team stands on either side of the table. The goal is to toss a ping-pong ball into one of the cups on the opposing team’s side. You can toss the ball directly into a cup, and the opposing team is not permitted to try to swat the ball away. Or, for an easier shot, you can bounce the ball when you toss it, but in this scenario, the opposing team is permitted to try to swat the ball away.

When a ball lands in a cup, a member of the opposing team has to drink it. Each team should be permitted three attempts each turn. Keep a cup of clean water nearby to wash the ball between tosses. The team that clears the opposing side first is the winner.
