16 Fun Drinking Games To Play With Or Without Alcohol

Eat carbs before you start.

1. Flip It or Sip It

Flip a coin and call it. If you're wrong, sip your drink and pass the coin to the left. If you're right, you can pass the coin to the right.

2. Drunk Jenga

3. Never Have I Ever

Emma Cooke / BuzzFeed

Taking turns, ask a question in the form of "Never Have I Ever" (e.g "never have I ever been to Spain"). Everyone who can answer "yes", drinks. If no one drinks though, then you have to drink!

4. Ring of Fire (or King's Cup)

5. Dirty Pint

Everyone puts some of their drink into a pint glass. Take it in turns to flip coins, calling it (whoever calls the coin correctly is out), until you have a final pair. On the last go, whoever's wrong downs the dirty pint.

6. Beer Pong

7. Pennies

Take turns trying to bounce a penny off the table into a glass. If you miss, you drink. If you get three pennies in a row, you get to make up a new rule.

8. Cheat

9. Twenty One

Emma Cooke / BuzzFeed

Take it in turns to count to 21, while not to be the one to say "21". If you do say "21", you have to drink or take a forfeit. Full rules here.

10. Fuck the Dealer

11. "Roxanne"

Emma Cooke / BuzzFeed

Listen to "Roxanne" by The Police. Drink every time you hear the word "Roxanne". Songs like "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift could be subbed in if Roxanne isn't to your taste!

12. Fuzzy Duck

13. Drink While You Think

Emma Cooke / BuzzFeed

The first person names a celebrity (Alison Brie). The person to their left names a celebrity whose name begins with the letter of that celebrity's last name (Brie -> Ben Affleck). You must drink while you think of a name. If you don't want to do celebrities, you can choose any other subject! i.e. books, games, television series...etc.

14. Let's Go Camping

15. Paranoia

Emma Cooke / BuzzFeed

The person on your left whispers you a question which you have to answer with someone in the room's name, (e.g. "who is the hottest in this room?"). You respond out loud and if someone wants to know what the question was, they have to drink.

16. Titanic

NOTE: Drinking games aren't obligatory, and you can always sub your gin and tonic for just tonic ;)
