Doom Drinking Game

Players: 1

PS4, Xbox One, PC


Alright, so, I’ll be upfront about this one. I didn’t play this a whole lot. It’s not really my kind of FPS, but it was fun while I had my time with it. The online multiplayer was promising, but it didn’t feel tight enough for me to commit to the game (I played during a free-to-play weekend). The campaign was interesting, though, which is what I decided to set up some basic rules for. I’d call this a completionist’s drinking game, if I were to put a label on it. It’s short and simple, like our “About” section advertises, and we only sometimes stick to…

Nintendo Land Drinking Games

Players: 2-5

Wii U


A game that was largely conceived to show off the gamepad capabilities of the Wii U for its launch, Nintendo Land is one of my favorite titles for the system. I mean, it’s a party game, so you know it’s right up our alley. There are so many different games included, some with surprising depth. The drinking game is good for any player range, so grab as many people as you like, or drink alone. Mario Chase and Luigi’s Ghost Mansion are probably my favorites, but there’s something here for everything. Enjoy!

Call of Duty Drinking Game

Players: 1-??

PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC


Call of Duty is a long time drinking game favorite, at least in my circle. But we could just be alcoholics. We mainly like to muffle our yelling at the television and each other with beer and fireball. With that said, there are tons of different ways to drink with this game, and there’s a lot of different versions of this game. Feel free to take any rules and adjust them for whatever is best suited to you. The main idea is to establish a base model for your consumption needs. Black Ops III is the main reference for the game, but most of the rules apply to any.

This will mainly revolve around deaths. There are plenty of different games to make for individual play modes, but there’s a lot of those, and we’re lazy.

Fallout 4 Drinking Game

Players: 1

PS4, Xbox One, PC


Fallout 4 is a large and highly engaging experience, so much in as that you can easily spend most of your time doing things besides fighting or following the main quest. I mean, you can build goddamn skyscrapers, or you can spend all of your time trying to bang your companions.

So, when you take this into account, there are a number of ways the game can really be played. Given that, I’ve decided to break the drinks into separate categories. The numbers are high, but they need to be in order to get enough drinks in your system, simply because there is never a guarantee that any one of these things is going to happen in any given 10 minute period. This is more of a casual drink-as-you-go game, but you can certainly make adjustments to the rules below if you really want to get trashed.
