8 Drinking Games Every Student Should Know How To Play

It’s difficult for any uni student to get by without a knowledge of drinking games. 

And it’s a well-known fact that sobriety is the leading cause of awkwardness. So invest in a bottle, get it down you and there’s a fairly good chance you’ll actually make some friends.

Here’s the definitive list of drinking games you NEED to know.

.

.

The Rules:

  • You are not allowed to say the word ‘drink’
  • Players are to be referred to as anything other than their actual name
  • You are not allowed to swear
  • You are not allowed to point using your finger or thumb
  • Players must drink with their left hand
  • All players must have their drink no less than one finger’s distance from the table edge at all times
  • An empty glass cannot be put down, it must first be refilled

Violation of any one of the above rules is punishable by drink.

The Rules:

  • Draw a Battleships board onto two pieces of cardboard.
  • Fill 18 shot glasses (9 for each player or team)
  • Create a division between the players or teams
  • Create 3 shot-ships by placing lines of 4, 3 and 2 shots in various squares on the board.
  • Shout a combination of numbers (1-7) and letters (A-G) at the opposing player/team, e.g. B4
  • If the position of the opposing team’s shot-ship is guessed, each member must down the number of shots the ship was made of

Continue with the game until all shot-ships (and opposing players) are destroyed

The Rules:

  • You flip a coin and call it (heads or tails) whilst it’s mid-air.
  • If you guess right, you pass the coin to the next player.
  • If you guess wrong, before passing the coin you must take off an item of clothing and take a swig of your drink.
  • If you guess right 3 times in a row, apart from annoying everyone else, you get the added bonus of reclaiming an item of clothing.

The Rules:

  • Get a Jenga tower
  • Write a different rule on each block
  • When you pull a block out, you have to do as it says

Whoever knocks down the tower has to down their drink

A word of warning: do not play in front or a love interest. This game makes you look and sound like a fool; if it doesn’t, you’re not doing it right.

The Rules:

  • To begin, all players round their first finger and thumb and place them up to their eyes to give the impression of glasses.
  • The starting player then shouts ‘Chiicckkkeeennn Googggllleeeessss’ and squawks.
  • This continues around the circle to the right.
  • If a player squawks twice, the game is sent in the opposite direction.
  • If a player squawks three times, the game skips a player and continues to the right.

The first player to squawk incorrectly has to down their drink, at which point the game begins again. Hesitation carries the same penalty.

The undisputed king of university drinking games – everyone must know how to play.

The Rules:

  • Fan out a deck of cards around an empty pint glass in the middle, when it’s your turn pull out one card and follow the rules below:
  • Ace – Waterfall
  • Everyone drinks on after the other, you can’t stop until the person before you does.
  • 2 – For you
  • Choose someone to drink a 2-finger measure of their drink.
  • 3 – For me
  • Drink a 3-finger measure of your drink.
  • 4 – Thumb Master
  • Place your thumb on the table whenever you want, the last person to copy you has to drink.
  • 5 – Guys
  • All guys take a drink.
  • 6 – Chicks
  • All girls take a drink.
  • 7 – Heaven
  • Point to heaven as soon as you see this card. The last person to do so drinks.
  • 8 – Drink with a mate
  • Whoever you choose can’t stop drinking until you do.
  • 9 – Bust a rhyme
  • You say a word, the person to your left has to say a word that rhymes. Whoever can’t come up with a rhyming word has to drink.
  • 10 – Categories
  • Similar to rhyme, you choose a category, for example “sex positions”, the first person to stumble drinks.
  • Jack – Rule card
  • You can make a rule – any rule. Left hand drinking, for example.
  • Queen – Question Master
  • You can ask someone a question whenever you choose, if they answer they have to drink.
  • King – King cup
  • Add some of whatever you’re drinking to the cup in the middle, aka the shit mix.

The first person to break the circle of cards has to take a drink. Whoever pulls out the last King card has to down the shit mix in the middle.

The Rules:

  • In a circle, one player after another poses a question to the table, for example: “never have I ever been to Spain.” (Don’t actually use that, you’ll make little to no friends).
  • Everyone who has been to Spain would then drink, and the game continues.

Never Have I Ever is perfect for getting to know new people – and you’ll learn a lot more than where they’re from and what music they like.

.

.

The Rules:

  • Set out a small triangle of cups on either side of a table
  • Each player will take turns to throw Ping-Pong balls at their opponent’s cup-triangle
  • If you land a ball in one of your opponent’s cups, they have to down its contents.
  • Continue until someone wins

Suggest these at your freshers party and you’ll have BNOC status in no time.
