Drinking Card Games: 5 Best
Many people enjoy getting together and playing card games while enjoying some drinks, so this run down of drinking card games, five best list. Make sure you read these directions before you start the party, and let the fun begin.
- Twisted. This game is played with at least four people and a beer, or drink, per person. The dealer places a card face up in front of the first player. If it is a face card the player has to drink 1/4 of their beer, if it is a number card their turn is done and the dealer goes on to the next player. The dealer will stay with each person until they show a number card. This is continued until all of the face cards have been shown, an everyone is drunk!
- Horse races. This game can be played with any number of people. First, the dealer will line up all the kings, then all the queens below the kings to make a straight line. Each player will be given a suit that they play during the game. The aces are put in a row next to the last row of queens (making an “L” shape). The dealer will flip over one of the remaining cards and the suit that is shown is the winner for that round. Anyone who is not playing that suit must drink, and the player of the suit gets to move their Ace up to the next row of Queens. This continues until one suit wins the race. The winners get to hand out eight additional drinks to other players.
- War. This game is played with at least six people. The dealer deals out all the cards to everyone until there are none left. Everyone, at the same time, flips over their top card. If there are any cards that match the value or suite, those players must drink the value of the card. Face cards are worth ten drinks and aces are worth one drink.
- Insanity. This game can be played by any number of players. The dealer places thirteen full beer bottles, or drinks, on a table and each beer bottle represents a card in the deck. The dealer flips up the first card, and whatever card is shown is the beer that the dealer must drink from (for example if the dealer flips up a four, the fourth beer will be the one they drink from). The card is placed in front of the beer and then the deck then goes to the next person and they will do the same thing. When the fourth and final card for each beer is flipped up, the person who is the dealer at the time has to finish whatever is left in the beer bottle.
- Kings and blood. This game can be played with any number of people. A deck of cards are placed in a pile, face down in the center of the table and a glass is set next to the pile. The first player flips over the top card, and if it’s red the player must take two drinks. If it’s black the player does not drink. If a king is flipped, the player must pour their beer into the cup to the count of four. Whoever flips up the last king must drink whatever is in the glass.
These games can be a lot of fun and can get a group of people who don’t know each other talking. Just remember that everyone either needs a designated driver or they need to spend the night where the party is.
