It always goes this way. We like a show or a movie that much so we make a drinking game about it. That’s what happened with The Office drinking game, and loads of other sitcoms and series. It’s Cobra Kai’s turn now. The latter is an American comedy-drama series about martial arts, with a total of 5 seasons and 50 episodes. If you want to re-watch the series, but have a bunch of drinks & some extra fun, keep reading! 

Wait till you find out that the rules can be applied to all episodes and all seasons of Cobra Kai! Yes, that’s right. You can simply play your favorite one, sit, watch and have some shots with your closest people. The first step is of course having a few friends who are also fans of Cobra Kai. For your curiosity, did you know that the show is based on the Karate Kid series? Well, get ready to have a blast!

  • A bunch of friends who enjoy watching the series. Anything from 2 people to larger groups is just fine.
  • A TV or another device you could play any of the Cobra Kai episodes. 
  • Your favorite alcoholic drinks. To remain sober, get some beers, but don’t forget to have a few shots as well! However, include water and non-alcoholic drinks on the table, just in case any of the players don’t feel like drinking at a certain time.

We kept our word. Nothing extra is needed. Since you’ve got the stuff ready, now you can start playing. The game is just as simple as it could be. You watch the show and keep an eye on the rules. They will tell you when you’ll have to take a sip, take a shot, or the special one, down your drink.

Conclusion: Have We Played It?

Even though there aren’t many rules, once you start playing, you’ll see how often you’re gonna drink just by reading one single rule. Trust us on that, especially when taking sips or shots. Since most of our team members are huge fans of Cobra Kai, this drinking game is one of our go-to games every time we get to gather together.

The most important tip we could give you is to pick people who really enjoy watching Cobra Kai, and friends you’re comfortable drinking with. Remember to know your drinking limits, drink carefully, and don’t get drunk if you have to drive afterward. You can play one of the non-drinking games instead.

At any point, if some clever idea comes into your mind, you can always add it and mix it with the rules we showed you previously. The more the merrier!

Just as John said, you may not always win, but you should never back out of a fight!
