    1. Tipsy Tower Drinking Game is *stacked against you*. Each block has a new rule or challenge to follow — if you fail to comply for the rest of the game, it's time to drink!

    You only need two plus players for this one! There are 54 blocks and 36 different rules!

    Promising review: "This is so great! Before this was a thing, I took my old Jenga set and wrote on them will all the rules for all the parties I used to go to. This saves me the work of figuring out which rule I've used and haven't. This tower is just like what I did when I was younger. But there are some things I never thought of to put on there that are on this tipsy tower. This will get so much use for everyone and if it's anything like Jenga it should last until my kids are 21, as well." —Alicia

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95.

    2. That's What She Said releases your inner Michael Scott with twisted red setup cards ("my toes are curling") that your friends match with their white phrase cards to complete the best hilarious sentence.

    Get four plus players for this!

    Promising review: "Such a fun game! I love playing it with my friends as a drinking game before a fun night out. It's definitely an ice breaker between new friends!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. Social Sabotage really creates a night you'll never forget after you're forced to text your ex that you're thinking of selling pictures of your feet online.

    This time it really may be a drunk text...Players take turns challenging each other with a combination of two cards: "where" (i.e. "Post on Facebook) and "what" (i.e. "Grandpa really fills out those khakis"). The player to collect the most cards by completing the dares wins!

    Promising review: "This game completely broke me out of my shell. I would've never imagined sending and saying things to people and social platforms the way this game has made me. It actually has rekindled friendships for me with people I haven't spoken to in years. The game is becoming a necessity every time I am hanging out with my friends. The game makes awkwardness funny and allows for people to enjoy watching others come out of their shell." —mb0821

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $24.97.

    4. Suddenly Drunk transforms any turn-based game into a drinking game by adding ridiculous rules all of you must follow, or you must take a drink if you fail. An easy way to make a night memorable (or lack thereof).

    Get three to eight players for this!

    Promising review: "Honestly, this game is so much fun. It makes any board game a drinking game, and for those old classics that you haven't played in a really long time, it really spices things up and makes them into new more fun games. I always bring it to any party now to ensure a good time." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.25.

    5. 100 Questions only feels like an interrogation if you do it soberly. Each card holds a loaded question that can answered better with a ~looser tongue~.

    Cheers to oversharing. Get three plus people for this!

    Promising review: "I love this little box of questions, and have given several as gifts. This year when storms knocked out power to my house, we opened a bottle of wine and took turns answering questions in the box. We enjoyed some surprising and funny moments as a result." —Jenny Twain

    Get it from Amazon for $30.

    6. Drawing Without Dignity exhibits your artistic ability — or is it just your perverse mind? Form teams, roll the dice, pick a card, and draw out each twisted description. If the other team guesses the subject correctly, you win! Just don't show your mom.

    It also includes game rules, timer, die, pretty box, drawing pad, and golf pencils! Best for four to twelve players.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my recent game night. Everyone loved it. I'm sure we didn't follow the rules, because it was WAY too hard to read them after quite a few drinks. Each card has five options on it so we just picked a card and chose an option to draw. Happy drinking and drawing!" —Debnbri

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    7. Drunk Stoned or Stupid calls out who in your friend group would be the one to do something like "risk their life for a selfie." The more players the merrier, and of course you should offer the publicly-shamed a condolence shot.

    The one who receives the most cards by vote loses! They'll need a drink.

    Promising review: "This game was a HUGE success. It was played at a party of drunk college students and by the time we finished everyone was asking me to bring it back to the next party. I recommend this game most to young people who all know each other pretty well. It's great for a party session where people can come in and out. I think at our lowest we had five people and at our greatest we had 15. People don't have to do anything to jump in." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    8. Golden Girls Clue solves urgent mysteries like "who ate the last piece of cheesecake" for a night even funnier than Betty White's Twitter account.


    You choose your favorite Golden Girl and make your way through the house to solve who the Case of the Cheesecake Culprit!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife and she was extremely happy with the game. A lot of love was clearly put into it, and we've enjoyed finding all the details and hidden easter eggs on the game board and other components. The rules are clear, too." —TECHNO Man

    Get it from Amazon for $30.98.

    9. 5 Second Rule puts your reaction time to the test. You have five seconds to name three things that match each "topic card," which will either get easier or harder with each shot you take.

    It includes a whopping 576 questions on 288 cards, and a five-second twisted marble timer (that makes a funny noise when over!). Get three or more players!

    Promising review: "New favorite game!!! I even brought it in my purse to a bar and more people wanted to join in! I love playing games and having something to do while drinking or just with friends and this one is perfect. Everyone I have played this with loves it too — it's simple, fun, creative, and hilarious." —Honest Heather says:

    Get it from Amazon for $13.43.

    10. Stranger Things Ouija brings you to the Upside Down and dares you to unlock secrets via the same alphabet wall as Joyce's — you may need some liquid courage!

    Best for two to four players!!

    Get it from Amazon for $38.07.

    11. Escape Room: The Game gives you 60 minutes to enter the correct keys on the "chrono decoder" and — you guessed it — escape. Perhaps you'll need some ~liquid luck~ for a major breakthrough.

    You have 60 minutes to enter the correct keys on the Chrono Decoder to escape! The game counts down remaining time, and emits loud sounds to let you know you’re almost out of time. This set features four versions: Prison Break, Virus, Nuclear Countdown, and Temple of the Aztec. They're best for three to five players!

    Promising review: "I confess I did not have high expectations for this product. My family absolutely loves the challenge of physical escape rooms, and I wasn’t sure that the same level of difficulty or fun could be replicated in a box. However, it typically costs my family of four about $100 to visit an escape room, so I figured why not give it a try. I’m so glad I did! The detail and complexity of these tasks rival actual escape rooms, and the online features are a plus." —TAGalong

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    12. Never Have I Ever opens the *floodgates* to those times you never thought you'd share with friends — that is, until you're on your third round of drinks and the card "joined the mile high club" hits a little too close to home.

    The first to collect 10 cards is the winner (at least of this game)! But not so fast: throughout the game you'll randomly select red cards to add on extra challenges, like the "bullshit card" where you can play judge and decide for yourself how guilty the other person is for their deed (plus you get all the juicy details). Get four plus people!!

    Promising review: "I love it! I use it as a drinking game, every time you have done it then you take a sip. This game is hilarious!" —Eva S.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    13. Utter Nonsense Naughty Edition combines silly accents ("side mouth talker") with ridiculous phrases ("you're going to love the pictures I took of you while you were sleeping)." Each person puts in a card for the designated actor to perform (you'll probably find your inspiration at the bottom of your glass).

    Round up four to twelve players!

    Promising review: "I got a chance to play this game with my friends and we got to laughing so hard we almost didn't care what the score is. Yes, some of the cards are a little raunchy, but really funny. It's definitely a game for adults and it does help to be drinking a little while playing. This is a really fun adult game." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.66 or the non-explicit version for $30.99.

    14. Exploding Kittens creates a whole lot of tension. Similar to Russian Roulette, players draw cards until someone gets the "exploding kitten," at which point they are d e a d. A toast to remember them.

    UNLESS that player has a "defuse" card, which can save them by using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the exploding kittens. It's best for two to five players!

    Promising review: "I bought this along with the NSFW version. I host game nights with friends where we mostly drink and play. This game is fun, has replayability, and is super easy to explain to buzzed/drunk people." —Golden Skillet

    Get the original or explicit version from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. Clue: Game of Thrones explores the Red Keep or the streets of Meereen on a custom illustrated, double-sided game board all to solve a murder. There are 12 suspects to choose from, and six weapons to discover. You might want a pint to ease the tension.

    It's best for two to six people!

    Promising review: "Great update to game! I love the two boards in one, plus the new cards that make it very competitive! It's tons of fun even if you're not a GOT fanatic." —Andrea Slaughter

    Get it from Amazon for $34.49.

    16. Hearing Things challenges you to the ultimate lip-reading contest. Choose from 150 cards with 600 phrases and try to guess what your opponent is saying while wearing noice-cancelling headphones. Drinking won't improve your hearing, but it will help your humor!

    It's recommended for four to eight players!

    Promising review: "You will laugh so hard when you play this game. It's great for family fun nights or a great game to play after a few drinks. You never realize how funny it can be when you can’t read lips!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    17. Most Likely To gets easier with each drink when you can finally tell Karen that every time she talks about her "vino in Florence" you feel the need for Bacardi 151.

    Each round a card is drawn and the group decides who in the group would be most likely to, say, have a 20-minute conversation with Siri (I mean me, but ok). First a player declares themselves the judge and reads a card aloud. Each person then says who in the group should be tagged with this card and why. The first person with seven cards loses. After that hopefully everyone remains friends!

    Promising review: "I love this game so much! My friends and I always have the best time playing! Its great to whip it out if you ever need something fun to do with your fiends or to get to know some people better!" —ispendallmymoney

    Get it from Urban Outfitters $16.

    18. Wine-opoly is the version of Monopoly that's *better with age.* Each aficionado collects a variety of wine (with a card that describes said wine plus a list of facts) and buys grapes, cheese, carafes, and more *cellar* things!

    Stick with two to six players for this!

    Get it from Target for $17.99.

    19. Disturbed Friends will make you vote on what you think your friends would do in horrible situations (250 questions to be exact). They do say alcohol brings out honesty, so drink up.

    It's great for up to 10 players!

    Promising review: "Holy wow! This game did not disappoint!!! I have some extremely dark humored friends and they absolutely loved this game! If you have dark humored friends that you can’t take anywhere then this is the game for them!" —MEGAN

    Get it Amazon for $25.

    20. Cards Against Humanity brings out the worst in everyone. Each round, one player presents a black card which will ask a question like, "What are my parents hiding from me?" Everyone throws in a white card with answers. The judge picks the "best" a.k.a most fucked up, and the person with the most tainted mind wins.

    There should be six to eight players!

    Promising review: "I brought CAH to a con I attended in Vegas, and it was a huge hit. We're all a bunch of nerds so the crowds can be a bit overwhelming. It was nice being able to gather everybody in my hotel room to chill out, drink, and play cards. We had friends of friends of friends dropping into our room randomly and it totally wasn't even awkward because CAH brings everyone together! It's also a game that's easy to play even when you're highly intoxicated. That's a vital selling point." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    21. Smart Ass lets you embrace your annoying know-it-all side (exaggerated by your second beer). Be the first to answer the questions (who, what, and where am I), and move throughout the board to the ultimate pain-in-the-ass title.

    Try to have two to six players! It includes a game board, six playing pieces and stands, 411 question cards, two jumbo dice, and instructions.

    Promising review: "My friends invited us to play this game at their house and we enjoyed it so much we bought one for ourselves. We've played it several times when friends have visited — usually while drinking adult beverages. Everyone LOVES the game. It is fun for people of all talents and has a wide variety of topics to make it enjoyable for all." —Davekv

    Get it from Amazon for $21.11.

    22. Fk. The Game ~swears~ by its fun tactics. Flip your card over: it'll contain the name of a color, but be an entirely different shade. It's a race to yell out the correct color — you'll be surprised at how hard it can be! Perhaps a drink to ease the nerves.

    Keep playing until someone is forced to pick up all the cards! The first person to successfully get rid of all of their is the winner — easier said than done.

    Promising review: "You ever got excited for a game, and bought it knowing its going to be fun, but since you haven't played it yet you can't gauge how fun it is? That's how I was with this, and I can say after playing it, this game is amazing. It has simple rules, but it keeps you on your toes and tricks you before you know it! Its great to play with friends and you will never not have fun playing this game! So if you like having a good time with a game that keeps you on your toes and makes you think, 'I'm smart I can do this easy.' And then you play it and you then think, 'Well gee that game made me feel dumb, and I loved every second of it!', then this game is for you! It's even better after you and your friends have had a few drinks!" —Corey S.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    23. Telestrations is like telephone tag, but funnier. Each player gets a pad that'll assign a word. You draw out that description to the best of your ability, and then pass for the next person to guess what the heck it is. Keep going until it's come full circle with a completely different meaning! Imagine will *flow* with the help of some wine.

    It's best for eight players! It contains over 1,700 words, eight erasable sketch books, eight dry erase markers, and eight clean-up cloths.

    Promising review: "Very fun game. This is the first game I've played when drinking that we have played all night and haven't switched to something else. You can also play this game multiple times." —isaiah.winkel

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.
