1. Rage Cage

Rage Cage

Equipment needed: 20 to 30 plastic cups, ping-pong balls and alcohol. | Players: 6 and more;

Everything you need to know about ‘Rage Cage’:There’s no better way to start this list, rather than with Rage Cage! Start by placing one cup in the center of the table, filling it full with alcohol, and spreading the other cups around (⅓ with alcohol), creating a circular pattern. Two players holding the balls must chug the cup nearest to them, and try to bounce the ball into that empty cup. If successful, pass the cup & ball to the next player. If you throw the ball in one of the middle cups, you stack cups and try to bounce into that stack. 

2. Never Have I Ever

Never Have I Ever

Equipment needed: A list of questions, and drinks. | Players: 2 and more;

Everything you need to know about ‘Never Have I Ever’:Never Have I Ever never fails to amaze us! All you gotta do is borrow a few favorite questions from our Never Have I Ever questions list, sit in a circle, and read the questions out loud. Every time you relate to a prompt, meaning, you want to answer ‘I have’, you take a sip of your drink. Otherwise, you stay sober for that round and wait for the next questions. 

3. Remake The Sound

Remake The Sound

Equipment needed: Home items that make sounds, and drinks. | Players: 2 and more;

Everything you need to know about ‘Remake The Sound’:This has got to be one of the funniest games ever! To play, when it’s your turn, you have to make a sound using an object: lighting a match, shaking a bottle, hitting something with a spoon, and basically everything that comes into your mind. Then, you must pick someone who has to remake that specific sound with their mouth, as identically as they can. Whenever someone’s too far from the original sound, must drink. Since this is going viral all over TikTok, you may see how the game goes here.

4. Drunk Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity

Equipment needed: CAH deck of cards, and alcohol. | Players: 4 to 20+;

Everything you need to know about ‘Cards Against Humanity’: We hate to admit it, but Drinking Game Cards Against Humanity is our favorite version! When playing, besides the standard rules, you’ll also apply the drinking ones. There are a few ways of playing, but our favorite includes giving as many shots as the card rejections (if your card is picked as the favorite), shuffling your cards for others in the deck in exchange for one shot, and also competing to drink the shot faster if you want your card to be picked. Endless fun! 

5. Drunk Twister

Drunk Twister

Equipment needed: Twister equipment, shot glasses, and alcohol. | Players: 2 to 4;

Everything you need to know about ‘Drunk Twister’:There’s no better thing than getting comfy at home, playing Twister, and having a few drinks. Besides the basic rules, there are some twists added. Start by placing shot glasses in each of the circles on the mat. When you occupy a circle on the mat, you drink. If you slip, you also drink. If you fall (meaning, you touch the floor with your elbow or knee), you’re out of the game but must finish a drink as well. The game ends whenever you’ve drank all shot glasses! 

6. Circle Of Death

Circle Of Death

Equipment needed: A deck of cards, an unopened can, and drinks. | Players: 2 to 8;

Everything you need to know about ‘Circle Of Death’:To start playing Circle Of Death, place the can or cup in the center, and spread the deck of cards around, face-down. Then, you’re gonna take turns drawing cards and completing actions based on the cards. If it’s an Ace, all players must waterfall. If it’s a card with values from 2 to 5, drink as many sips as the value. If it’s a 9, you must start a game of Categories. If it’s a King, you may make up a new game rule. However, you find the full instructions in the link attached above. 

7. Walker Bottle

Walker Bottle

Equipment needed: 2 plastic bottles, tape, an extra bottle of alcohol, and drinks | Players: 3 and more;

Everything you need to know about ‘Walker Bottle’: Since when do bottles walk? Well, to play this drinking game at home, start by marking 7 spaces with plastic tape (just as shown in the picture). Then, both players at a time must flip their plastic bottles. For every correct flip, you can move the alcohol bottle one space forward to your opponent. Both players aim to move the bottle all the way to the first space on the opponent’s side because then they must drink it, and also lose the game! It’s similar to playing Hook Ring Toss

8. Straight Face

Straight Face

Equipment needed: pieces of paper, pens, and alcohol. | Players: 4 and more;

Everything you need to know about ‘Straight Face’:Who doesn’t love a game that makes you burst into laughter? To play straight face, all players must write down something funny, inappropriate, hard-to-read, or really, anything that comes into their mind, in small pieces of paper, and fold them in half. Then, after all the pieces have been mixed, players take turns drawing one piece of paper and reading out loud, without giggling or laughing. If successful, the turn is passed to the next player. If not, that player must drink!

9. Truth Or Drink

Truth Or Drink

Equipment needed: an empty bottle, a list of questions, and drinks | Players: 3 to 8;

Everything you need to know about ‘Truth Or Drink’:Truth Or Drink is the game of confessions, and drinks. Simply, sit in a circle, and spin a bottle to tell who’s gonna answer the questions (whoever the bottle points to). Then, keep an eye on our Truth Or Drink list of questions, and ask one of the questions you like. If the person who must answer thinks the question is too personal, or simply doesn’t prefer to answer, has to drink. So you either get deep or get drunk!

10. Movie Drinking Game

Movie Drinking Game

Equipment needed: a movie you like, and drinks for everyone | Players: 1 and more;

Everything you need to know about ‘Movie Drinking Game’:The first good thing is that you can play a movie drinking game all by yourself! The point of the game is that you’ll play a movie (whatever the group prefers), keep your beers neer, and drink every time the rules tell you to. For instance, you’ll drink when a fantasy scene appears, someone speaks a foreign language, you see nudity, or whatever. It really depends on the movie. We already have a list of the best 20 Movie Drinking Games with all the rules included, so make sure to check that out!

11. Slap Cup

Slap Cup

Equipment needed: around 20 plastic cups, alcohol, and 2 ping-pong balls | Players: 4 and more;

Everything you need to know about ‘Slap Cup’:To start playing this large-group drinking game, start by arranging all cups in a hexagon, and filling them ⅓ with alcohol, besides two cups, which are placed in front of two players. These two players must try to bounce the ball into the empty cup in front of them and pass the ball & the cup to the next player. However, if you’re bouncing the ball, but the player on your left is trying to bounce it into their cup, you must slap their cup away. That player must then grab another cup from the middle of the table, drink the alcohol, and then try to bounce the ball again.
