Throwing a party and looking to amp up the fun? Drinking games are a fantastic way to break the ice, get everyone laughing, and create unforgettable memories. Here are 6 classics you can always count on to get the party going! We also realize that everyone comes from different upbringings where these rules may be slightly different- no worries, just throw your own spin on it!
1. Kings (King’s Cup)
Kings is a classic drinking game that’s perfect for groups of any size. You’ll need a deck of cards and a large cup placed in the center of the table. Each card drawn has a specific rule associated with it, such as:
•Ace: Waterfall – Everyone starts drinking at the same time, and no one can stop until the person to their right does.
•Two: You – Choose someone to drink.
•Three: Me – You drink.
•Four: Floor – Everyone must touch the floor; the last person to do so drinks.
The game continues until all cards have been drawn, with the final card usually resulting in the King’s Cup – a mixture of everyone’s drinks, which the unlucky drawer has to drink.
2. Beer Pong
Beer Pong is a beloved party staple that combines skill and luck. Set up a table with 6 or 10 cups arranged in a pyramid shape at each end. Fill the cups with beer (or any drink of your choice) and have players stand at each end of the table. Players take turns throwing a ping pong ball into the opposing team’s cups. If the ball lands in a cup, the opposing team must drink the contents and remove the cup. The game continues until one team eliminates all the opposing team’s cups. It’s competitive, fun, and always a crowd-pleaser.

3. Flip Cup
Flip Cup is a fast-paced team game that’s sure to get everyone involved. Divide players into two teams and have them line up on either side of a table. Each player has a cup filled with a small amount of beer. The first player on each team drinks their beer, then places their cup on the edge of the table and tries to flip it upside down by flicking the cup with their fingers. Once they succeed, the next player on their team goes. The first team to successfully flip all their cups wins. It’s energetic, loud, and a ton of fun.
4. Never Have I Ever
Never Have I Ever is a great way to learn more about your friends and share some laughs. Players take turns saying something they’ve never done, starting with “Never have I ever…” For example, “Never have I ever gone skydiving.” Anyone who has done the stated activity must take a drink. It’s a fantastic icebreaker and can lead to some hilarious revelations, whether you decide to keep it clean or dirty!
5. Drunk Jenga
Drunk Jenga adds a twist to the classic game of Jenga. Write different challenges or rules on each Jenga block, such as “Take two drinks,” “Make a rule,” or “Sing a song.” As players take turns pulling blocks from the tower, they must complete the written challenge. If the tower falls, the player who knocked it over must finish their drink. It’s a fun, interactive game that combines balance and bravery.
6. Quarters
Quarters is a simple yet challenging game that requires only a quarter and some shot glasses. Players take turns trying to bounce a quarter off the table and into a shot glass. If they succeed, they can choose someone to drink. It’s easy to set up and can be played casually throughout the party.
With these drinking games in your arsenal, your party is sure to be a blast. They’re great for breaking the ice, keeping the energy up, and ensuring everyone has a good time. Just remember to drink responsibly and know your limits!
