Today we're here to talk about one of our favorite topics - drinking games. And when it comes to drinking games, you don't need a lot of fancy equipment or complicated rules - all you need is a deck of cards. So without further ado, let's dive into some of the best drinking games you can play with only a deck of cards.
Let's start with a classic - Kings Cup. This game involves assigning a different rule to each card in the deck (for example, "drink two" for a two, or "make a rule" for an eight), and then drawing cards and following the corresponding rule. But watch out for the dreaded "king" card - whoever draws it has to pour a little bit of their drink into a communal cup in the middle of the table. The person who draws the fourth king has to chug the entire cup, which can lead to some wild times.
Up and Down the River
This game involves drawing cards and guessing whether the next card will be higher or lower than the current card. If you guess wrong, you take a drink. But here's the twist - the number of drinks you have to take increases with each round, so things can quickly get out of hand. For example, in the first round, you might only have to take one drink for a wrong guess, but by the fourth round, you could be chugging four drinks at a time.
Ride the Bus
Ride the Bus is a game that involves a little bit of strategy - and a lot of drinking. It starts with the dealer laying out a pyramid of cards, face down. The first row has one card, the second row has two cards, and so on, until the fifth row has five cards. Each player takes turns guessing whether the card they flip over will be red or black. If they guess wrong, they take a drink. But here's the kicker - if a player makes it all the way to the end without getting a single guess wrong, they get to "ride the bus" - which involves guessing the color or suit of each card in the deck, and taking a drink for each wrong guess.
F*ck the Dealer
This game is all about trying to guess the value of the card the dealer is holding. Each player takes turns guessing whether the card is higher or lower than the previous card, and the dealer tells them whether they're right or wrong. If a player guesses wrong, they take a drink. But here's the twist - after each round, the dealer changes, and the new dealer gets to choose which card they hold. If they're feeling sneaky, they can choose a low-value card to trick the other players into taking drinks.
High or Low
This game is a simple guessing game that can quickly escalate into a full-blown drinking fest. Each player takes turns drawing a card from the deck and guessing whether the next card will be higher or lower. If they guess wrong, they take a drink. But here's the catch - if a player guesses wrong three times in a row, they have to finish their entire drink. So be careful not to get too confident in your guessing skills.
There you have it, folks - some of the best drinking games you can play with only a deck of cards. Whether you're looking for a classic like Kings Cup or something a little more strategic like Ride the Bus, these games are guaranteed to get the party started. So grab a deck of cards, pour yourself a drink, and let the games begin!
