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.
It truly is a strange, magical place.

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

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.
