Fortnite Drinking Game

Players: 1-99

PS4, Xbox One, iOS, PC 


In honor of our return to the business of pretending-to-have-a-productive-reason-for-drinking, we’re throwing a couple of big title games your way. There’s nothing much bigger than Fortnite right now, which I do quite enjoy, but I’m surprised it’s still going. And the other big title for the month is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so make sure to check that out!

Fortnite Battle Royale Glider Girl

Me gliding away from all of my problems to my living room couch to play more Fortnite.

To clarify, we’re only doing a game for the Battle Royale mode. I’m sure that doesn’t really surprise anyone, but I wanted to clarify. I’ve never paid money for the actual game… or know anyone that has. Anyway, to the goods!

I have a special Death Game to provide the basis for the drinking involved, and then I also have standard rules set up for specific events.


The Death Game

The rules for this are simple:

  • For every 5 people remaining when you die, you drink 1.
    • This is a potential 20 drink hit if you die immediately.

There’s a catch, though.

  • Once you are under 50 remaining players, this number actually now applies to your friends watching or playing alongside you, but in the opposite direction.

So, if you survive to the 30th spot, your friends drink the equivalent of placement 70, which is 14 drinks, thus your incentive for survival is extra high in this game. All other players required to take a shot if you win (does not apply to fellow teammates that survived the round).

I know you guys are thrilled to try it out.

Spaceteam Drinking Game

Players: 2-8

iOS, Android


“Do you like pushing buttons and shouting at your friends?” (Google Play Store)

Spaceteam is the perfect party phone game if you’ve grown tired of putting words on your forehead.

There are a few ways you can add a boozy element to the fun, from simply taking a shot when you lose, or by following some of our fun twists.

Place your bets
As with most games, one easy way to make it competitive and drunk is to add the element of an initial drink wager. Someone starts the betting by saying something a long the lines of “One drink says we make it past phase 1,” and then someone else can raise the wager by raising the drink amount, phase, or both. Once someone has out bid the rest of the team, they drink their wager and the game begins. If the team is successful, they give out double their wager and the process starts over. This game will only work well if no one is trying to sabotage the better. Just follow the “Don’t be a dick” rule, and you’re sure to have a great time.

If you mess up this bet,
you’re gonna ~be~ the primesucker.

Set Phasers to Lush
Every time you reach a new round, everyone must take a drink quickly while the screen is loading.

No Cursing, You *%#@!
Every time you curse, you must take a drink. Immediately.

WaitingRoom

You’re gonna #$&! this rule up the moment you realize Riley is still not in the $%&*#@! waiting room.

Play it at a Bar and let Them Stare
Every time a stranger wanders over to ask what the hell you’re all doing, order a round of shots for the team.

Teamwork

Shit’s really hitting the fan, guys. We’re not gonna make it. It’s been an honor flying with you.

Magikarp Jump Drinking Game

Players: 1

iOS, Android

Ok, yes, Magikarp Jump is a game designed to keep your children distracted long enough for you to make it through your grocery list incident-free, but don’t pretend like you’re not training your own little pathetic flopper when you have nothing better to do.

This game is best for when you are bored, have no plans, and just really need a reason to drink.


Drinks

  • Magikarp levels up
  • Win a league battle
  • Train your magikarp
  • Special event occurs
  • Use a friendly pokemon’s ability

3 Drinks

  • Retire a magikarp at max level
  • Win a league championship
  • Retry fishing a magikarp
  • Try a risky event option and succeed
    • Such as opening a pokeball, trying to get a berry, telling magikarp to find its own way home, or investigating a mysterious sparkling object in the water.
  • Receive a friend candy for leveling up a training course or food item

Shot

  • Lose a magikarp
  • Forced retirement before max level
  • Food frenzy

Don’t worry, you’ll be drunk as a fish before you have your second league championship.

Evoland Drinking Game

Players: 1

PC, Mobile


Evoland is an interesting Action RPG adventure that evolves as you play it. The game is on the short side, and there are points where you might end up dying constantly with possible rage quit… so it’s a perfect single player drinking game!

Flappy Bird Drinking Game

Players: 2-??

If you’re reading this, maybe you’ve hit a low point in your life. I know I have for writing it. We’re gonna make this real short and simple, because there’s like 1 aspect to the whole game. And, obviously, this applies to pretty much any rip off of the game because the original is no longer in existence on the App store.

flappy bird screens

The Game

So, this is going to be simple. You are going to pass the game around, each person taking a turn. If you’re the first person, pass out a drink for each point you acquired during your turn. From there on out, you will either give or take the difference of the current high score.

  • If you are 5 points behind the current score when you die, take 5.
  • If you are 5 over and obtain the new high score, give out 5.

You can see how this will get pretty ugly the higher the score gets, as you will surely screw up very early on at least a couple of times while the score is rocking above the 50 mark – or however good your group of friends happen to be at this shitty game.

-Alternative Drink Option-

If your prescribed drinks hit the 20+ mark, you can trade in the full amount for one shot.


Now go get on with your life and try to make better decisions.

Pokémon GO Drinking Game

Players: 2-21,000,000+

Mobile


By now, if you’re not playing Pokémon GO, you’re likely the only one of your friends not out hunting small creatures on your phone. Niantic has provided this generation with what we’ve wanted since we were in elementary school: The chance to be the very best, like no one ever was…to Catch ‘Em All… to actually be a Pokémon trainer. It’s a great reason to take a walk, but it can also be a great drinking game when you’re staying in.

  • I’m bolding staying in because the last thing this game needs, or we are promoting, is some drunk idiot walking into someone else’s home or the street because of this drinking game. BE RESPONSIBLE. THIS IS A DISCLAIMER.
  • Thanks

The Rules

Everyone playing will have their phones open to PoGO for the duration of the game, so it’s good to play during another activity that doesn’t require the use of your phone. Some great options are another drinking game (like Circle of Death), watching a show/movie, or playing a console game like Final Fantasy XV.

You Spot a Pokémon

As part of the game, you MUST attempt to capture every Pokémon that you have the opportunity to. When you attempt to capture the Pokémon, you take 1 drink for each time the Pokémon breaks out of the ball, and 2 drinks for each time you miss the Pokémon completely. Check your aim!

You Catch a Pokémon

Give drinks according to the rarity of what you caught. Use this list from Eurogamer.net as a reference guide – it’s currently the best I can find including the newly added second generation. If a second or third evolution appears, take the given drinks times 2 or 3, respectively.

Everywhere – 1 drink
Common – 3 drinks
Uncommon – 5 drinks
Rare – 7 drinks
Very Rare – 10 drinks
Epic (Very Rare Section 2) – 1 shot
Special/Region Exclusive – Finish current drink
Not Currently Available – Drink everything else in the house. Everything. Even the mustard.

Congratulations, you’ve got a new Poké AND one of your opponents is drinking to your victory.

Optional: All given drinks must go to someone on the opposing team. Valor shall not give to Valor, etc.

The Pokémon Escapes

Take a shot! This isn’t amateur hour; if you have trouble with aim and successful captures, you’re going to be drunk… soon.

Extreme Mode

You Evolve a Pokémon During Game Play

Give a shot! Have a bunch of Weedles saved up to evolve with a lucky egg? This may be a great time to use it.

Using a Lure

If you’re lucky enough to be able to play at/next to a PokéStop, then using a Lure will absolutely intensify the game. Everyone take a drink (or a shot) to celebrate the placement of the Lure!
