Adults love ordinary party games too. But, what if we play the ones that put party games at another level? What if we add some drinks to the game?
That’s what the Do or Drink game actually is. We play, but we also get drunk, and the next day, we may probably not remember what we did.
Also, since we’re speaking of company, quite honestly, the experience would be slightly ruined if you have that kind of friend in the group who gets easily offended and leaves the game the moment they’re faced with a challenge. You’ll notice, you will.
Okay, let’s see what the game is all about, shall we?!

Design: What Do or Drink looks like
It kind of bothers me that it is wrapped in plastic, but aside from that, the box looks pretty neat.
It has a pretty simple design: on the outside it is black and white, but it is very colorful once you open the box.
In the front of the box it’s the game name written with capital letters, and below the title it says “WIN OR BLACKOUT”. It actually says a lot about the game: Win or drink so much that you lose it all…
On the side of the box, there’s a line that tells you one more time that this game is only adult-friendly: DESIGNED TO GET YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS WASTED!
While the back of the box, with the reversed colors (white background and black letters/text), briefly explains the gameplay, and tells us what we will find inside the box, like what cards can we expect and what they look like.
Here’s a picture of the back of the box, so that you’ll have a better idea of what I’m talking about:
Now that we’ve seen and talked about the box outside, it is time to see what’s inside it.
It’s always been a joy of mine to open up boxes like this one where the lid covers the entire box, and it just elegantly comes off as you pull it upwards. Bonus point on that one.
Once the elegant, grand opening is done, you’ll see a paper in which are written the rules of the game in a more detailed way (when compared to the ones explained on the back of the box).
Under the rules paper you’ll be seeing the cards divided into two piles, sealed in plastic wrap, not a fan of that. Let’s see what’s the deal with that:
The cards’ design of Do or Drink
Apparently, the two piles divided, wrapped in plastic, are the white cards and the black cards.
As they already said, the game contains a large number of cards. It has a total of 350 cards, half of them are white and half black.
Although labeled as black cards, 35 of them are red when we turn them over.
Now, the black cards are divided into 2 types: black (worth 1 point), and red (worth 2 points).
On the other hand, white cards are divided into 20 types. Some of which are: Draw, drink if, brunettes, vote, war, waterfall, social, simon, free pass, swap, etc.
The questions and challenges are varied. By just going through them, they seem to be pretty funny, and sometimes, some of them contain very difficult challenges. Here, some of them:
- Take an embarrassing selfie and post on to your snap story or drink 3 times;
- Take three shots or quit playing;
- Keep this card and use it anytime to force another player to drink double of what they’re supposed to.
- Text your parents saying “ I’m pregnant” or “I got someone pregnant” and don’t reply until after the game. Do this, take three shots, or quit playing…
I’m sort of surprised to be honest, as I did not expect the cards to have such content – I’m surprised in a good way.
If you doubt that you’ll get drunk, allow me to free you from that doubt: you will get drunk, if not stoned.
The game rules of Do or Drink
Although there are many types of cards, playing Do or Drink becomes easier once you start. To play, gather some alcohol and invite your closest friends to follow these rules:
- Separate black and white cards into two piles.
- The first player draws a white card and completes the challenge based on its category.
- Continue drawing white cards until a DRAW card is drawn.
- The player who draws a DRAW card must draw a black card and either complete the challenge or drink.
- If the challenge is completed successfully, the player keeps the card, and black cards are worth 1 point, while red cards are worth 2 points.
Do or Drink is not suitable for minors, as it contains adult and sexual content, as well as dangerous and difficult challenges.
Therefore, avoid playing it in the presence of children and choose your playmates wisely. It is best to play with friends or family members who you are comfortable doing stupid things around, and who are not easily offended.The game can be played by 2 or more players, but it is more enjoyable with a larger group.
Do or Drink makes for a unique and fun gift for a friend’s 21st birthday.
What is it like to play Do or Drink? – The game experience
The excitement of playing a good game, particularly a funny one, is a feeling that we all remember. I can still recall the first time I played Do or Drink, and it was an experience to remember.
The setting was a family evening, and I had ordered the game two weeks prior to that. I had been intrigued by the game description I had seen on social media, so I had decided to give it a try.
I gathered a group of young people who were above 21 years, excluding the elders, uncles, aunts, and parents. Before inviting them, I made sure that they were the type of people who didn’t take things too seriously, so as to prevent anyone from getting hurt or offended.
Once everyone was in the room, I explained the game and the rules to them. The goal of the game was simple – players would draw a card and read out the instructions, which could either be a challenge or a question. Players would then have to decide whether to do what was written on the card or take a drink.
We shuffled the cards and prepared everything, and I started the game to show them how it was done. The first card I drew was a vote card, which said that everyone had to point to the person they wanted to have a drink. Six of them pointed to the person in front of me, and I was relieved that I was not the one who had to drink.
As the game went on, we encountered incredible questions and challenges. Some were more challenging than others, but they were all fun.I drew a black card that instructed me to text a random phone number “u up?” or drink twice. I chose to text the number as it wasn’t too difficult of a challenge.
The game also had its fair share of outrageous challenges. One player drew a red card that instructed them to take off an article of clothing every time someone drank until they were down to their underwear.
The game continued with increasingly difficult challenges until one player drew a card that instructed them to streak down the street. The player refused the challenge and quit the game, which was probably the right choice.
Playing Do or Drink was an endless source of fun, laughter, and sometimes embarrassment. Overall, I would rate it 8.5 out of 10 and would definitely play it again.
