Civilization V Drinking Game

Players: 1-12

PC


Civilization is a long running franchise that makes it very easy to lose several hours of your life pitting George Washington against Gandhi. It makes it especially worse now that you can do this with friends online. So, what better way to enhance the experience than with drinking? I’m sure a lot of players out there are already drinking alongside their campaigns to begin with, but we figure we’ll just throw in some rules to make it more interesting.

Let’s play “just the tip”

This game will play fairly differently if you decide to play alone or with other people. Basically, if you’re alone, just take the assigned amount. And yes, doing things that tend to benefit you will score you drinks. That’s what drinking alone is all about. If you’re with friends, a lot of things are switched over to the give category.

On Your Own

Finish Research / Production – Drink 1

City Grows – Drink 3

Destroy Enemy Unit – Drink 3

Reputation Goes Up With Nation or Declare Friendship – Drink 3

Reputation Goes Down With Nation or Declare War – Drink 5

Found a City – Drink 5

Connect Two Cities by Road or Borders – Drink 5

Consume a Great Person – Consume 5

Hit Negative Gold Income – Drink 5

Your Unit Dies – Drink 5

Lose a City – Take Shot


With Friends

A lot of the rules for multiplayer can be decided before going into it, mainly drink amounts and such. It can depend on how many of you there are and how fucked up you want to get, but I’m building this with 3-4 players in mind.

Ideally, you’ll want to make a map that is mostly occupied by just the group you’re playing with. You can have some NPCs in there if you’re short on friends, though.

The goal is to kill each other. You can play this as tactfully or as sloppy as you like. For a level of fairness and balance, I’ll suggest you not make alliances with anyone else while playing, but that is just a suggestion. For acts of violence against other players, those players will drink. Or you will, if you’re an idiot.

Rules

Declare War on a Player – They Take 3

Down a Player’s Unit – They Take 5

Enter a Golden Age – Give 5

Found a New City – Give 10

Enter a New Era – Give 10

Destroy / Take City 

  • They Take a Shot
  • If More Than 2 People Playing, You Can Also Give an Additional Shot to Person of Your Choice

Win The Game – Give 2 Shots

Bonus / Hardcore Mode

Assign a specific technology somewhere in the technology tree to trigger shots to all opposing players for the first person to hit it. You can do this with multiple techs. It’s in your hands, now.

Let us know how you enjoy the game. Try not to turn it into the intro to the Fallout series. Or do. I don’t fucking care.

SimCity Drinking Game

Players: 1 (Multiple Online?)

PC


SimCity is a long beloved franchise that has certainly changed over the years. And whether you love or hate the newest addition, the rules to follow should mostly apply to any version of the game. If you’re like me, you’re up late playing it alone with a beer in hand as a nice time sink while you ignore not being able to fall asleep and the state of your life in general.

There aren’t an overabundance of rules, as it’s mostly a slower paced drinking game, but you’ll find yourself indulging for most of the significant events you achieve or see onscreen. As with any of these games, you can always alter it a bit to fit your desired level of shit-faced.
