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!

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.

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!

Crusader Kings 2 Drinking Game

Players: 1-16

PC


Crusader Kings II is a game of intrigue, espionage, politics, and of course, death. In a world where everyone is plotting or resting in a plot, what doesn’t kill you will probably kill you later.

murderplot

Drinking and plotting to kill each other is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon with your closest friends. Being such a complex game, feel free to add or alter any drinking occasions as you see fit.

Happy New Year!

Celebrate each passing year with a quick social drink. This will get more useful the drunker you get, because it will remind you how quickly time is passing.

You Arrange a Marriage!

Both people are outside your nuclear family:

Congratulations to the happy (or whatever) newly weds! Take a drink.

Marrying off your child:

Congratulations, Pops/Mama! Take a drink if they married above their status; Two drinks if they married their equal; and take a shot if you married your child to someone unworthy, you piece of shit.

Marrying yourself:

Good job! Take a drink for every living member of your nuclear family (Parents, siblings, children) because they’re toasting you at your wedding. All other players should also take a drink with you.

You Get Sick or Injured!

Each time you choose (or are forced into) any type of treatment, take a drink. Alcohol is great medicine.

You Succeed in a Plot to Have Someone Killed!

Woohoo! That bastard probably had it coming. Take a drink and hope that your beverage hasn’t been laced with revenge.

Was it one of your superiors?

Give out a shot just to remind everyone what a badass you are. (take a shot instead if you’re playing solo, or you’re trying to keep your murder secret)

You Die!

Take a shot and hope that your heir isn’t a fault-ridden adolescent.

Were you murdered?

Take an extra shot and be more careful next time.

Did you plot your own murder?

Wow. Everyone else takes a shot.

You Acquire New Land!

Give or take a drink for each new territory, and a drink for each new vassal.

You Go to War!

Take a drink with your foe.

Did you start the war?

Give an extra 2 drinks to the player of your choice.

Surrendered?

Take a shot, you coward.

Victorious?

Give 3 drinks to anyone, and tell them to acknowledge your greatness.

You Lost the Game!

Your lineage has met its end. Have you left a meaningful mark on the world’s history? Probably not. Better take a shot and start over.

Dragon Age: Origins Drinking Game

Players: 1

PS3, 360, PC


Dragon Age is probably my favorite of Bioware’s game series. I might be a bigger advocate of Mass Effect, but I tend to lean towards fantasy over sci-fi as a general theme. That’s not really important here, though. You’re here because you want to get drunk. Or you’re lost. Either way, you might as well finish reading this article.

That’s right. Slagathor continues in Ferelden.

This is a single player drinking game, but you’re always free to let friends join you with the same or modified rules. Every drink cue will be worth one drink unless otherwise specified. I’ll break them up into categories to make them a bit easier to reference for you. You’re fucking welcome.

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.

civilization v gameplay

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.
