Seems like you’re into the FBI, criminals, secrets, and all that cool stuff, am I right? If you belong to this group of people, we’ve just found nothing but the perfect drinking game for you. It includes many details & scenes from all 15 seasons, and you’ll definitely find a strong enough reason to rewatch any of your favorite episodes all over again.

The main idea behind it is to get you and your mates drunk, but also get some glimpses of this fascinating mystery show. Once you go into the game, you won’t want to quit playing, just so you know! Follow our meticulous instructions, get your comfort drinks, and start having the best time of your lives! 

Important Details Before Playing

Remember when we talked about movie drinking games? Well, spot on. That’s exactly what you’re gonna need. The main and most important thing that allows you to play is finding a website to watch the series. Criminal Minds is available at Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+, so make sure to check them out.

You may use whatever device you own. You can possibly watch it all individually on your phone, on a laptop, or on a TV screen. We prefer the latter, needless to say. This drinking game literally works for any number of people, from 2 to larger groups. However, it also works incredibly fine as a single-player game, just in case you want to have some drinks by yourself.

There isn’t any specific rule for the drinks. You just get whatever you enjoy drinking. If you’re asking for our opinion, since you’re gonna have to drink lots of times (based on the rules), we prefer using beers. That’s practically it. Keep an eye on the rules, watch TV series, and drink whenever a specific scene plays.
