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…

Horizon Zero Dawn Drinking Game

Players: 1

PS4


If you were to ask me what the best new IP to release in the last few years was, I’d ultimately have to say Horizon Zero Dawn. If you haven’t played it yet, you’re in for one of the best narratives in gaming since The Last of Us, in my expert* opinion. The combat is very addictive, as well, but I was mostly impressed with a story that was so fresh in comparison to many of the games we have today. I hope this game can help you enjoy it as much as I did.

* – Expert in domestic beer. It’s important.
Horizon Zero Dawn In a Nutshell Drinking Game

I promise it all makes sense after a few hours…

Due to the fact that I love the story so much, a lot of the rules are going to revolve around the story and quests. That is, besides my favorite aspect of this drinking game, which is The Name Game, which I’ll display first. What is it, you ask? Well, Aloy gets a lot of, uh, “titles” throughout the course of the game. I’ve taken the liberty of writing most of them down and assigning drink values to them. Some of these might be slight spoilers, but some of them are sarcastic, so you can’t really know which ones are serious! Enjoy! And let me know if there are any I’ve missed, and I’ll be sure to add them to the list.


The Name Game

Nora – 1

Aloy – 2

Outcast – 3

Brave – 3

Outlander – 3

Seeker – 4

Anointed – 4

Heathen – 5

Curse – 5

Trash – Shot

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.

Primesucker

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.

Downwell Drinking Game

Players: 2

PS4, PS Vita, Mobile, PC


Downwell is a simple and addicting retro-style game available for free on PSN for Playstation Plus subscribers in the month of August (2017)! Basically, you jump down a well and kill things as you advance farther and farther downward. You’ll die. A lot. I crafted the game for two people. There’s not enough content to really go at it by yourself, unless you’re just looking to wreck yourself, but it makes for a great back and forth drinking game.

I don’t know who this is. I never made it that far. I’m really bad at the game.

The Rules

The Person Playing…

  • Take 10 if You Die

The Other Person…

  • Takes 5 if You Pass a Stage
  • Takes 10 or a Shot if You Pass an Entire Level

Social x 5…

  • If You Unlock a New Palette or Style

Slender Drinking Game

Players: 2-??

PC


I personally find Slender to be the scariest fucking game in existence. I think my top score ever is 6 pages, and I’m pretty sure I pissed myself. I never, ever played it alone, either. I don’t think it affects everyone the same way, but the premise of the game always unnerved me.

slender man drinking game

If I have to kill one more person for walking in on me in the bathroom…

Anyway, here’s a super simple game that is great with a group of friends if you want to get drunk and scared at the same time – good scared. And this is for the original download of the game, “The Eight Pages.” I heard “The Arrival” didn’t really deliver, and the premise seems the same, so feel free to try it with that as well.

The Game

One person will be in control of the game at a time. The person playing is essentially immune to drinks* during gameplay, so you can focus on running around trying to make hell for your friends. This person will play the game normally, but every time they pick up a new page, everyone watching has to take 5** drinks. Essentially you’ll just do this and rotate until everyone is on the floor. There is no penalty for dying, unless you die with only 0-1 pages. Take a shot for that because you’re bad.

*  – Player takes shot if they chicken out before death.

** – You decide the amount to take. Can highly depend on who is playing / how fast people die in your group.

Titan Quest Drinking Game

Players: 1-6

PC, Mobile


Titan Quest is an older action RPG on the PC. In fact, it’s been 10 years since its initial release, but the developers have come back to this one and done some remodeling. So this is to celebrate that. Resembling Diablo in many ways, the game mostly revolves around creating a killing machine to sweep through the game. Given that, the drinking game will mainly revolve around killing, quests, and items. It’s a simple but effective game.

I haven’t played the most up to date version of the game, but the rules should be similar. Multiplayer mode can also focus more on kills and item drops to make communication easier. It also helps match the pace a bit better that way.

I didn’t realize this was going to be a nudist party.

Accept a Quest – Drink 2

Quest Updates – Drink 1

Complete Quest – Drink 5

Beat a Regular Boss – Drink 5

Beat a Titan – Drink 10

Level Up – Drink 5

Notified You’re Out of Room – Drink 2

Legendary/Epic Item Drops (whichever is respectively the “rare” type at your level of progression) – Shot

Death – Shot

This seems like the ideal time to check my inventory.

This game is best played with quick shot items. We use the same strategy for Diablo III by using Fireball, and it’s great to do right before going to your weekly volleyball game. Get wrecked.

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.

Pokemon GO Evolution

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!

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.

Rocket League Drinking Game

Players: 1-8 online (1-4 local)

PS4, Xbox One, PC


Rocket League is a killer, fresh online multiplayer experience with a simplistic concept: let’s play soccer – or hockey or basketball – with rocket-fucking-powered race cars. As with any online multiplayer experience, there’s plenty of shit talking and bashing and frustrating lag moments, but it also provides one of the most addicting and drink-worthy experiences I’ve encountered. It’s easy to start playing but very difficult to master. Luckily, our drinking game applies straight from the start.

Points For Drinks – 2+ Players

As you start playing Rocket League, you’ll notice you earn points for different achievements as the match goes on. Respectively, the main focus of this drinking game is to give drinks to the other people you’re playing with depending on what you accomplish during the game. The following chart displays how many drinks to give out for each accomplishment:

Playing On Your Own / Hardcore Mode

These rules are a bit more simplified if you’re just playing and drinking on your own, but it does include a couple of the rules from above. You can modify what is a drink from a shot, if you like, but I prefer to go harder if I’m just playing myself.

Opposing Team Scores: Take Shot/Drink

You Are Destroyed: Take Shot/Drink

Intermission Between Goals: Chug!

Another Player Somehow Insults You: Take 5 Drinks For Comfort

Lost a Game: Shot

Super Smash Bros. Drinking Game

Players: 2-??

N64, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, 3DS


Super Smash Bros. – the king of party games. It would only make sense we add this to our roster of drinking games, and it’s one of my personal favorites. This should work for any o the entries, give or take a feature here and there. There are a couple of different game modes for Smash, but we’ll focus on the main multiplayer events, and you can adapt those to some of the more single player oriented affairs, such as All-Star and Classic modes. So without further ado, the main event…

Set up a free for all match, put all of the characters as CPUs that are each assigned to a person playing, make sure they’re at level 9, set the match to double the speed, and then watch the mayhem ensue. Same rules apply. Try to keep up with the drinks as they go. Good fucking luck.


Mii Shot Game

The Mii Shot Game!

Think you’re ready for this?

This is a dangerous addition I’m making to our Smash Bros. game, but it’s one that I think needed to be added. The premise is simple. Create 4 (or more) Miis with the names of your drink options for the night. Set them to level 9, and watch them fight. Whichever Mii comes out victorious, everyone participating must take a shot of that specified drink.

We hope it’s flavored.

 

If you want to make it a participation game, pair up with a friend and make it a team battle. If they win, you guys take shots. Best if you’re not crazy good at the game.
