Favorite drinking games to play with friends?

#1 Posted by KHAndAnime (13901 posts) -

Does anyone here have any favorite drinking games to play with friends? I can't be the only one here who does this. Here's what I have in my rotation...

Counter-Strike GO: Switch turns on death or round end. If you killed no one, you must drink. For every 3 consecutive kills you get within a life, everyone else must drink (I consider these the standard rules). If you successfully plant the bomb or rescue hostages, everyone else must drink. If your attempt fails, you must drink.

Mount & Blade Warband: Standard rules, played on Siege. If you're primary flag capper, everyone else must drink.

NFL Blitz: Drink if you fumble the ball resulting in a turn over, or if you lose the ball on 4th down. Drink if you're scored on.

Chivalry: Duel mode. Switch on every opponent. Drink if you lose, drink if you win 3 times in a row.

Red Orchestra 2: Standard rules.

I think what makes a good drinking game is having the ability to compete in short bursts, directly or indirectly, while maintaining steady drinking (without being excessive). It's better if the rounds are tense, and if you can crap-talk your opponents. Also, I like to listen to music while I drink so chose games where sound isn't a necessity. My personal favorite is Counter-Strike GO because it's always challenging, but it's also always incredibly easy to pub stomp. More often than not I'll be tipsy, confused, and go AFK for long stretches - yet at in the end I'll be at the top of the scoreboard.

Here's a good idea, a thinking game with shots - Hearthstone: you play vs a friend - whoever looses drinks a shot; and followed by your rules: whoever wins 3 rounds drinks a shot as well.

Boy, to see a friend who can't focus on thinking would be very funny.

We do not normally play a drinking game out of games, just mainly drink and play games.

Rainbow Road on Mario Kart: Drink if you fall off

Unreal Tournament 99, if you got a headshot you took a drink, if it was you who got headshot you took 3 drinks. Shortest night ever.
