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!

Super Mario Bros. 3 Drinking Game

Players: 1-2

NES, SNES, Wii, Wii U, 3DS…I don’t know, probably fucking anything.


Super Mario Bros. 3, one of everyone’s favorite retro games, is the ultimate classic. It built upon its predecessors’ success and perfected the formula for the NES era. With its array of fresh drug-inspired power-ups, Mario could hop and fly his way to victory. And then slaughter Bowser, once again.

This… might explain a few things.

I’m including two separate games. One for each single and multiplayer with some overlap. I’m going to warn you, if you follow the exact rules, especially for the multiplayer game, you’re going to be fucked real hard. So, hopefully, that’s what you’re looking for! If not, just dial the drinks back a bit. The shots, too. And don’t suck.

Enjoy!

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…

Extreme Mode

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.
