The Contents Of ‘You Laugh You Drink’

We like starting with the box. It’s the only thing in this game that won’t make you laugh. Let’s take a look at it, so you can spot it in shops: 

You Laugh You Drink - Box

It’s a simple black, square-pattern box, with the game name written in yellow and blue. In huge letters! There’s nothing more about the front. But, why don’t we deal with the back of it too?

You Laugh You Drink - Back Of The Box

The back of the box shows a lot more, clearly. It tells that this one’s a drinking game for everyone who can’t keep a straight face. Because they will drink the most! You’ll get to see some of the cards, so you get a glimpse of how funny the game is. There’s the age range and number of players mentioned, and details about the manufacturers too!  

Now, the stage belongs to the most important content of You Laugh You Drink: the cards! As we mentioned, this card game includes a deck of 150 cards, and they all have the same design and category. Here’s how the cards look: 

You Laugh You Drink - Cards

The back of the cards has the same design as the box, while the prompts are written in white, and have an ordinal number written on top. If you’re curious, here are some of the prompts on the cards:

You Laugh You Drink - Card 1

Magic Mike is as hot as it could be. Now it’s your turn to do a shy dance related to it, although that could be impossible… 

You Laugh You Drink - Card 2

This one could get embarrassing. And uncomfortable, by all means. So the target may laugh, and drink, so, mission accomplished! 

You Laugh You Drink - Card 3

It keeps getting weirder and funnier, and we’re here for it! Now you’ll become a hummingbird, and sip some nectar. 

Instructions & The Value Of ‘You Laugh You Drink’

You, hilarious fellas, I bet you loved the cards! Since you thus far know how the game looks, we can finally talk about the rules of You Laugh You Drink! 

The deck must be shuffled and placed in the center of the table, facedown. Everyone takes turns to become the Joker of the round. The Joker picks their target, draws a card from the deck, and completes whatever’s written in the cards. The Joker’s goal is to make the target laugh within 30 seconds, depending on the prompt. If they do this successfully, the target drinks, and the Joker earns a point. If the opposite happens (the target keeps a straight face), the Joker drinks, and the target gets a point. 

If you’re the Joker but you aren’t confident to complete the specific prompt of the round, you are allowed to skip the turn but get punished with a sip. The first player to earn 7 points, is the winner! 

You Laugh You Drink - Instructions

Now, let’s talk about what we call assets. The biggest pros of this card game. Whenever we play You Laugh You Drink, we love how simple the gameplay is. It just flows, there’s nothing complex about it, and you just take turns completing prompts in the cards. Talking about the cards, they’re very straightforward, simple, and extremely creative.

In the game, we all aim to make each other laugh or drink, and I think that’s beautiful! It’s true that sometimes it can get a little embarrassing, but since we usually play with close friends, we get through it every time. However, if you’re planning to play with other people to get to know them better, we suggest you go through the cards and remove anything that’s too uncomfortable. 

Considering all the above-mentioned facts, it’s one of our favorite games to play on holiday weekends, game nights, and parties. Well, it’s definitely worth its money since it’s hard to not laugh with most of the cards in this deck, and creates memories you’ll cherish forever!
