Time has proven that drinking games are game changers, and there’s no one to prove me wrong. One main reason you may particularly skip playing drinking games, we assume it’s gonna be the equipment, cards, list of questions, movies, and similar ones. You’re a lucky human! Today, we’ll present to you the remarkable list of drinking game apps, that require no extra stuff. You just get the app and read the instructions shown on the screen.
The best thing is that they work well with many groups of people. You may play with your besties, relatives, family members, strangers, or even with your partner. You don’t need to worry about a single thing. We’ll carefully show you links to download each game, give you instructions & tips, and inform you about the number of players preferred to play.
Just a friendly reminder: games you’ll read about below are recommended to be played by people 21 and older since there’s drinking included. If younger people are playing, use non-alcoholic drinks. However, that’s up to you.

Why Drinking Game Apps?
Let me count down a few reasons why these games are super helpful and make your parties awesome, especially if you’re hosting them!
- They cost no penny. We made sure to include free apps (mostly), so the furthest they can go is to ask if you want to pay for premium, and that is optional. You need no cards, no other devices, no printed papers, just a few drinks you prefer. Even if there’s an app that requires purchasing, it won’t cost more than $10, which is always less than buying a normal drinking card game.
- These game apps are extremely simple to use. All you need to know, basically, is to know how to read. Yes, you start the game and read whatever’s shown on the screen, and then answer, complete dares, or drink based on what the app said.
- If you don’t like the game, you simply delete it. We’re not saying you’ll love each one of the games. If you download one, start playing and if you end up not enjoying it at all, you delete it and download another one. It’s not like you paid for it, or you have to wait for weeks to return it.
- Most of them are customized. This means that you enter your names at the beginning, and feel like the game is specially made for you. We undoubtedly love this fact! Also, on the couples-made apps, you may add your gender, so you get the best content chosen for you.
- You’ll find enough options for both Android & IOS. The masses of the game apps we have included work for both device brands. There’s a slight number of apps that only work on one of these operating systems and not on the other (most likely in Android but not in IOS).
- They’re fun to play. It’s not that they only give you some good ideas on drinking. You’ll also have lots of fun and laughs. There are many challenges, interesting questions, and dares, but obviously, they’ll make you drink, a lot!
- Apps are unique. Even though lots of the apps have similar games in them, the questions & challenges are unique. So, even if 2 or more apps have ‘Never Have I Ever’ questions, each app has different questions from the others.
Let’s start with Picolo, an amazing party game that works well for any number of players, even if there’s a large group playing. The game is divided into different parts of gameplay, including Virus, Penalty, Maximum Penalty, Game, and more. You’ll be asked to say or perform things for a specific amount of time (such as announcing the time every minute), drink if you’ve done something (ex. talking in your sleep), answer ‘Would You Rather’ questions, and many more fun ones.
Important to know: The main, basic mode is free. However, if you want to unlock ‘Getting Crazy’, ‘Bar’, ‘Caliente’ & ‘War’, you have to pay $4.99 per week.
I puke, do you? It’s available to be played by 2 people or more, so, this is what makes it even a couples drinking game if you wish! Start by adding the players’ names. The game is mostly based on challenges, such as adding ketchup to your drink, faking an orgasm (whoopsies), eating a napkin, and continuing further. You get points for every completed challenge, and you may also add points if you drink extra shots. The player who has the most points at the end of the game wins.
Important to know: The starter deck, coming with 62 cards (a.k.a challenges) is free. The other decks, counting ‘The dictator’, ‘YOLO’, ‘Epic Night’, ‘Spicy’, ‘Social Shame’, ‘Have You Got Balls?’, and the other 6, cost $0.99 each.
3. The King’s Cup
Even though the logo and the game design itself are a bit different on IOS and Android, the game idea & rules are the same. It’s worth mentioning that there are the same rules as in the card game, obviously King’s Cup. The priority is that you’ll have you don’t need to have a deck of cards or remember the rules. You’ll get your card, randomly, and you immediately know what you should do, based on the card. To remind you, there is one rule for each card (for example, you waterfall for every Ace).
Important to know: The game is free and there aren’t any special packs. However, you may add and apply your own rules to the game.
A game that besides the fun, has a very cool logo! It is made to be played by 2 to 16 players. Something I find very amazing is the way to choose the turn. All of you hold fingers on the screen, and it tells you who should continue. The game has more than 300 games and challenges, like actual phone games, and then some personal questions. Some of the games are also multiplayer ones, so you start competitions with your favorite people. There are tours & rounds, and each one has different amounts of drinks needed. Super duper fun!
Important to know: Besides the main pack, you can buy the Champion’s Pack ($1.99) and the Hot Pack ($3.99) as well. Also, you may unlock a game for free by connecting to their Facebook page.
5. Game Of Shots
Don’t we all love drinking games with shots? This one is full of challenges! It’s like all the drinking games in one app. ‘I’ve Never’, ‘Shake Da Booze’, ‘Minesweeper’, ‘Truth or Dare’, ‘King’s Cup’, and many more. The thing is that many of the games have different levels on them. For instance, ‘Truth Or Dare’ comes in light, extreme & hot, and complete! There are also a bunch of cool questions and dares, which also tell what amount of shots you have to take. I mean, that’s the whole point of drinking games, isn’t it?
Important to know: For extra questions and challenges, you have to pay subscription fees every month, whose prices depend on the pack.
6. Do or Drink
‘Do Or Drink’ never fails to amaze us! Just as the name explains, everything is all about doing something or drinking. There are ‘Would You Rather?’ questions, ‘Kings Cup’ challenges, NSFW, Classic questions, and more. There are also punishment cards that can be added to whatever deck you’re playing, and let me tell you, they’re wonderful! There’s no specific number of players, and you won’t have to write names and all that. All the rules are applied to the whole group fellas!
Important to know: The Demo Deck, Classic, Kings Cup, Punishment & Rule decks are free. However, some decks get unlocked when you play one of the previous ones, but you can also purchase the extra ones.
7. Drink Or Doom
Have you ever thought of a drinking game based on comics? Well, you will now! It’s like watching a short movie or reading a comic book, but it will make you drink! You choose the number of players, write down the names, and click start. You’ll roll the dice (on the screen) and next see your character moving & stopping in its destiny. It could be something like playing air guitar or drinking, picking someone to drink with, letting someone pinch you or drink, and such things. It has a very unique design and you can barely get bored with it!
Important to know: You can customize the game settings (unit system, music volume, auto roll dice, and more). You may also pay $0.99 and make your own custom cards.
8. King Of Booze
First things first, the game design is cool. There is an amazing roulette, which after rolling the dice, tells you what challenge to complete & how many shots to drink! You should add the players’ names, and all questions get customized. It tells you which friend you should allow to draw you a mustache, which girl you should kiss, or drink several drinks. I love how creative and fun all of the challenges are. Sometimes you will definitely refuse to drink just because you’ll enjoy the challenges way too much!
Important to know: The app is not free for IOS users, it costs $2.99. For Android users, the base game is free.
Cheers to a cool drinking game for 2 people! Great for you to play with your bestie, partner, or anyone you wish. You should enter your names, and then select one of the decks. There are many challenges, such as finishing lyrics, faking an accent, starting a chugging contest, drinking if you have or have done something, and many more. Unfortunately, it can’t be played with more than 2 people, but however, we love spending some time only with our special one. The logo & the game design, in general, is awesome as well!
Important to know: Random, Action & Drinking decks are free and enough for a good game. Yet, packs like Couples, Best Friends, Sexy Couples, Pop Culture, Conversations, and a few others, cost $0.99 each.
Shall we drinkie, drinkie? Our next game app is a collaboration of different games, including spinning the bottle, actions, new rules, ‘Never Have I Ever’ questions, etc. You’ll share personal experiences, start group challenges, add a laughing rule, make the guys & girls drink, and a lot of other cool ones! We love how simple it is and how much fun you will have. Most of the time, the group decides who drinks based on the voting, or completing dares. It’s super entertaining!
Important to know: We love playing the Tipsy pack which is great fun. Nevertheless, if you’re willing for more, you may go premium ($4.99 per week) to unlock all game packs & remove ads.
11. 5 Second Rule – Drinking Game
We all know the ‘5 Second Rule’, we all love it! It’s just like a normal game. You have to name several things (most likely 3 or 5) when you have a chosen category.
You may have to name 3 underwear brands, breeds of dog, local movies, brands of motorcycles, and more. The only slight difference is that if you can’t answer in 5 seconds, you have to drink. Before drinking, make sure you click on guessed or not signs. 5 seconds may seem like a blink of an eye, but, make your mind work faster!!!
Important to know: Once again, 3 main decks are free, and there is a total of 500 cards in them! ‘Little Party’, ‘Big Party’ & ‘Mega Party’ are your decks. To unlock it all, you can go premium ($1.99 a week).
12. Trick Or Drink
Get the app: Google Play;
We’ve talked about ‘Truth Or Drink’, but, what about ‘Trick Or Drink’? There are challenges, such as shouting out as loud as you can, questions (ex. Telling if you ever started a farting competition), tricky games, and several others. Of course, if you fail to complete any of the challenges, or answer some kind of embarrassing questions, you have to drink a specific number of shots. We love the fact that there’s everything included. Personal stuff, interesting games, challenges to test your limits, and so on.
Important to know: Unfortunately, the game is currently available only for Android users. Whoever uses IOS devices should go for the other games.
As we always say, from our beers to yours, Cheers! This drinking game is full of packs, starting with ‘Never Ever’ and ‘Higher Or Lower’. The coolest thing is that, for example, in the first pack, you may choose your questions between nice, dirty, or even both. The second pack, ‘Higher Or Lower’, is just like playing the normal card game (a.k.a. the second round of ‘Ride The Bus’). The priority is that now you get all the rules shown on the screen, and you have customized challenges for specific cards.
Important to know: To unlock all packs, such as ‘Most Likely’, ‘Horserace’, ‘Throwing Game’, ‘Spin The Bottle’, you have to pay $8.99. However, the 3 unlocked packs bring lots of fun.
14. Most Likely To…
Who’s most likely to love this game? We all are! You may play with as many players as you want, starting from 2. In the app, you’ll have your ‘Who’s Most Likely To’ questions, just as you were playing the normal drinking game. You’ll get to answer stuff like ‘Most likely to laugh so hard they cry’, ‘Most likely to have a homosexual experience’, ‘Most likely to pee in the shower’, and hundreds of unexpected ones! When a question is read, everyone has to vote who they think fits the content best. The most voted player has to drink.
Important to know: The 2 main packs (The Pre-Party and Wild Pack), with a total of 261 questions both, are free. However, there are 9 other packs you may unlock if you subscribe ($2.99 per week, or $41.99 per year).
I mean, who doesn’t like a good Drinkopoly though? The game is full of surprises! You may select more than 1 deck to play, so there will be a cool mix. There will be stuff such as night confessions, mini-games, fights, jackpot, and a bunch of others. Some challenges require you to drink if you fail to complete them, while some others require you to drink to complete them. Hopefully, I didn’t make it as confusing as it sounds, lol! What we love is that the app also keeps track of how many shots you’ve taken. Isn’t that cool?
Important to know: Lightweight, Guess In 5 Secs & 5 Naughty Secs are free packs. Other packs, counting Dirty, Let’s Coupulate, WTF, and 2 others, cost $3.99 each.
16. Drink It
Let’s welcome a game that is full of questions & cool ideas! If you pick the first pack, the Classic, you’ll deal with ‘Category’ (for example naming Disney characters), ‘Most Likely’, ‘Act It’ (acting Harry Potter without saying the name), ‘Event’ (choosing a song everyone has to sing along to), ‘New Rule’, ‘Never Have I Ever’, ‘Do It’, etc. We love seeing such a mix of different stuff. There will be funny content, but also personal to help you know people better. Usually, the whole group is active in the challenges. Most likely the looser drinks.
Important to know: Only the first deck is free. ‘Dirty Secrets’, ‘Getting Crazy’, ‘Choose Yourself’ & ‘My Games’ cost $3.99 each, or you can unlock all if you go premium for $10.99.
Get the app: Google Play;
Do you remember Waterfall, the drinking card game? Well, it goes all the same for the app. Taking turns, you will randomly pick out a card, and the app tells you exactly what you have to do. For example, if you drew an Eight, you have to pick a friend (a mate) who has to drink every time you do and vice versa. There will also be some in-between games, and group challenges, such as playing Flappy Drink, Thumb Master, and dozens more. Besides Waterfall, the app also offers other rules, including Sueca, Fire Up, and That Guy.
Important to know: The game is free, but there may be blocked sets of rules. To unlock them, you simply watch some quick ads, and you’re fine!
18. Drunk Potato
Get the app: Google Play;
The name is pretty… strange, isn’t it? Well, after playing, you’re all gonna be drunk potatoes! The whole idea behind it is to answer random questions before the timer ends, and pass the phone to the next player. Questions are something like: name 5 animals that people eat, name 2 movies about dancing, list 3 foods you crave when you’re hungover, and more. If you’re still stuck with the questions, even tho’ the timer’s off, you have to drink. There are a diversity of questions, starting from personal to general.
Important to know: There are a few other modes available on the app, which don’t require actual money. You can unlock them by earning coins on the game, or by watching videos.
At some point, this game reminded me of ‘Jumanji’… Besides having challenges, the game is also about drinking if you own/have or have done something. For instance, you may drink after you lose on Rock, Paper, Scissors, but, you may also have to drink if you have the largest feet if you were born in an odd year if you cannot touch the floor with straight legs, and more fun ones. The good thing is that it also keeps track of penalties for each player, so, cheers to that!
Important to know: The ‘Warm Up’ pack is free. If you want to unlock the other 4 decks, you have to purchase the pro version of this drinking game for $9.99.
I’ve concluded: that we’re never getting tired of couples games! You may play with your partner, or with other couples as well! Once you enter the names, you may choose between drinking games OR Truth, Dare, Kiss, Or Drink. If playing the drinking games, it’s similar to what we had before. There are questions, challenges (mostly couples’ content), and of course, there’s drinking. On the second mode, there’s a roulette that tells you if you’ll deal with truth, dare, kiss or drink. For example, if the app has picked ‘kiss’ for you, it also tells you where you should kiss your partner. So so romantic!
Important to know: The main packs of both modes are free. To unlock all packs, to hype it, even more, you have to pay $10.99.
Conclusion: Are These Games As Fun As They Seem?
From someone who has played all the games, sincerely, yes, all games are worth playing.
