7 Simple Drinking Games That Don't Involve Playing Cards!

Posted by Luke


There's are a lot of drinking games out there and for the majority of them you need a pack of cards, but what if you don't own a pack of cards? We'll worry not, here at Beerbong we want to ensure that no-one is left out, so we've decided to list 7 simple drinking games you can play that doesn't involve a pack of playing cards. 



Drink While You Think 

Drink while you think is a drinking game that tests your ability to think on the spot, whilst you're chugging back your drink. The rules are simple - The first person must say a celebrities name (Matt Damon). Then the person to his/her left must think of a celebrity's name beginning with first letter of that celebrities last name ( Damon -> Daniel Radcliffe) and you must continue around the circle. But there's an added twist, the player must think of this celebrity whilst chugging their drink, so the longer you take to think the more you drink! Can you think quick when the pressure is on and you're pounding back your drink? 



Pennies was one of the very first drinking games ever played and rumour has it there has been cave drawings found of cave men playing pennies - we may have made that bit up, but pennies is still an old and iconic drinking game. The rules are simple, you each take it in turns to try and bounce a penny off the table into a shot glass, miss? Drink. Miss three in a row? Why not make up a rule?




Never Have I Ever 

Never have I ever is a great game that also allows you to find some secrets about your friends that you perhaps didn't already know. The rules are simple, each person takes it in turns to ask a question in the form of "Never have I ever" for example "Never have I gone skinny dipping", everyone who has answered yes, must take a drink. The cycle continues until you're all too drunk to play or you run out of secrets. 


Drunk Jenga  

Drunk Jenga puts a twist on the wooden brick stacking game, we all know and love. Write a rule on each wooden piece perhaps "take 2 drinks" or "Miss a go" you decide! But if you knock down the tower, then you're going to have to down your drink! 



Beer Pong

Beer Pong is featured quite largely on our site, and that's because it's so flipping great! Beer Pong is by far the GREATEST drinking game there has ever been! If you've been living under a rock and you're unaware of how to play beer pong, the rules are simple! Each player has 10 cups each (1 wash cup and 9 cups placed in a triangle, filled with 1/3 full with beer), you must then take it in turns to each throw a ping pong ball into the opponents cup, if the person succeeds with throwing the pong ball into the opponents cup, they must drink that cup filled with alcohol.

Would You Rather

We've all played the classic game of "Would you rather?" Well this drinking game, is exactly like that but with a little added twist. Everyone has a vote on the answer and the people that chose the least popular answer, has to drink! 


Russian Roulette Drinking Game 

This is a Russian Roulette game that doesn't result in death but may result in you doing something you'll regret or vomiting. It's simple to play, just start by lining up six shot glasses, fill 5 with water and one with tequila or white rum. Then each player apart from one has to turn around and then the player has to shuffle the glasses around, once that player has shuffled the glasses he must turn around and another player must move the glasses around. Once this is complete, each player must take it in turns to roll a die and drink the shot glass corresponding to that glass until the glass with the tequila is found. 


Try out these drinking games at your next party, if you don't have a pack of cards with you, we promise you'll have a great time!




Jurassic Park: The Drinking Game

Posted by Luke

Good news, dinosaur lovers: Jurassic World is in cinemas now! To celebrate this fourth generous helping of archaeological awesomeness, we thought we'd go back to the film that started it all and use it as an excuse to get trollied

Here, then, are Beer Bong UK's unofficial drinking rules for the original Jurassic Park movie. Why not get some mates over tonight and have yourselves a dinotastic booze-fuelled film night?

  • Every time somebody dies, take a drink.

  • Whenever anyone mentions chaos theory, take a drink.

  • Also, whenever John Hammond states that he has "spared no expense", take a drink.

  • Every time a dinosaur appears on-screen, take adrink.

  • Take a drink every time you see the Jurassic Park logo (above) in the movie.

  • Y'know that famous scene when Gennaro and the kids are in the car and they notice the ripples in their water cups (caused, of course, by the massive footsteps of a Tyrannosaurus Rex)?  When you first see the ripples, all players must pick their glasses/cups up off the table. The last person to do so must finish their drink.

  • Every time you hear that one bit of John Williams's theme music (da-da-daaa-da-da), take a drink.

  • Finally, take a drink every time you want to punch Jeff Goldblum.

Happy drinking, dinosaur fans! Click here for more fun drinking games.

Game of Thrones Drinking Game

Posted by Luke

Good news for Game of Thrones fans: the people behind HBO's runaway hit have confirmed a premiere date for season 5! The Starks, the Lannisters, and all the others will officially be back on our screens on Sunday the 12th of April.

To celebrate, we've put together a set of rules for our very own Game of Thrones drinking game! Many of the show's protagonists are constantly getting sloshed (cough cough Tyrion Lannister cough), and so it only seems fair that we the viewers should be allowed to get in on the fun as well.

Without further ado, then, here are the rules for Beer Bong UK's Drinking Game of Thrones. Why not practise with some previous episodes while you wait for the new season to arrive?

You Will Need:

  • Game of Thrones boxset (though we don't recommend drinking through more than 1 or 2 episodes in one session!)
  • A steady supply of alcohol
  • Something to drink out of (try our Party Essentials section)


The Rules:

  1. Keep up, Podrick: Whenever somebody takes a drink on-screen, take a drink of your own.

  2. Honour the Dead: Whenever somebody dies on-screen, take a drink. If you actually knew that character's name, take two drinks.

  3. Wardrobe Malfunction: Whenever nipples (male or female) are shown on-screen, take a drink.

  4. The Old Gods and the New: Whenever somebody mentions a god or gods, take a drink. This includes the Lord of Light, the God of Death, the Seven, the Drowned God, etc.

  5. You Must Be Ned Stark's Bastard: Whenever someone calls Jon a 'bastard', take a drink.

  6. You Must Be Tywin Lannister's Dwarf: Whenever someone calls Tyrion a dwarf - or makes any reference to his height - take a drink.

  7. Can't Fight This Feeling: Whenever Ser Jorah gazes longingly at Daenerys - or suggests in any way that he might have feelings for her - take a drink.

  8. White Walkers Whenever somebody mentions or makes reference to the White Walkers, take a drink. If a White Walker is actually shown on-screen, finish your drink (once per episode).

  9. Dragons: Whenever somebody mentions dragons, take a drink. If somebody states that dragons are extinct/no longer exist, take two drinks.

  10. Hodor: Whenever Hodor says 'Hodor', take a drink.


Bonus Rule:

Take a drink whenever the 'words' of a Great House are spoken. If you need a reminder, here are the phrases to listen for:

  • Winter is Coming (House Stark)
  • Hear Me Roar (House Lannister)
  • Ours is the Fury (House Baratheon)
  • Fire and Blood (House Targaryen)
  • As High as Honour (House Arryn)
  • We Do Not Sow (House Greyjoy)
  • Family, Duty, Honour (House Tully)
  • Our Blades Are Sharp (House Bolton)
  • Growing Strong (House Tyrell)
  • Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken (House Martell)

Be aware that there are a few scenes in which the 'words' of various houses are discussed at length (e.g. when Maester Luwin teaches Bran Stark about the Great Houses of Westeros, or when Olenna Tyrell complains that 'Growing Strong' is pretty naff compared to 'Winter is Coming' et al). Depending on the episode you're watching, you may end up drinking quite a bit!

Mario Kart Drinking Game

Posted by Luke

Forget your Gran Turismos and your Needs for Speeds; Mario Kart is, and always will be, the very best racing game on the market. It doesn't matter which version you're playing - whether you're on the Wii U, the Gamecube, the N64 or the SNES, karting with Mario and his buddies is always a blast.

But you know what would make it even MORE fun? A few drinks! If you want to take your Mario Kart fun to an alcoholic new level when next you play, here are the rules to follow:

Mario Kart - Drinking Rules

Suitable for all Mario Kart games.

  1. Yoshi Costs Extra: When choosing characters, the player who selects Yoshi must take a drink before the race begins.

  2. Lap it Up: At the end of each lap (except the final lap), you must drop your controller and drink before proceeding. If you are currently in 1st place, take 3 sips; 2nd place takes 2 sips, and 3rd place takes 1 sip. If you are in 4th place or lower, you may ignore this rule and keep driving.

  3. Can't Steer: If you fall of the edge of the track, take a drink. (Warning: stay away from Rainbow Road, or this rule may kill you)

  4. The Right to Bear Arms: Before using any item/weapon, you must put down your controller and take a drink. This rule does not apply if you are in last place, or if the weapon in question is a blue shell (see rule #7)

  5. Go Bananas: If you skid on a banana, you must put your controller down, stand up, and spin around three times before proceeding.

  6. You Idiot: If you hit a fake item box, you must put your controller down and finish your drink before proceeding.

  7. What a Shell-end: Before using a blue shell, you must drop your controller, stand up, and announce to the room: "I am a terrible friend!" If a player fails to make this proclamation before launching a blue shell, pause the game and encourage everyone to boo enthusiastically while he/she finishes his/her drink.

Just seven rules, but a far more enjoyable game, we think! Remember to drink responsibly and stop when you've had enough (this applies to both alcohol and Mario Kart).

3 Safer Drinking Games

Posted by Luke

Although wet and nominate is the current phenomenon, who remembers Neknominate (or neck and nominate)? We enjoyed the gist of the game, but there were a few problems that arose from its nature. You see this drinking game was actually played individually, and rather than trying to directly avoid a quick down of your drink, people were entering themselves into an all-out drinking war where the aim was to out-do and out-disgust all who watch.

All of this stirred a very laddish mentality in which extreme and dangerous measures were being taken in order to get one over on the previous video - which has carried on with the latest wet and nominate challenges for sure. The contents of what was being necked switched away from solely alcoholic drinks to things like fabric softener, urine, and even faeces; it goes without saying that things got out of hand!

We are not complete party-poopers here at BeerBongUK, how could we be? And to prove this, we have compiled a list of several safe drinking games that involve merriment, the fast consumption of milder alcohol, and most importantly fun – safe fun!

I Have Never

This is a great safe drinking game that is only really in danger of exposing some of your dirtiest secrets! The game involves a person saying the infamous words ‘I have never…’ followed by an act they haven’t done. All who have never taken part in the said act are safe, but all who have must have a mouthful of their drinks. The beauty of this game is say you know some dirt about someone who is playing you can tailor your ‘I have never’s’ to make sure they have to take a swig.

International Drinking Game Rules

This one is a little more complicated and will certainly have people thinking, as well as catching them out and making them take a drink! The idea is you specify a set of random rules at the start of the night, and those who break them have to take a gulp! There is nothing stopping you making up your own rules, but here are the standard ones: you can’t say names – no calling anyone by their name or nickname; no pointing – you have to use your elbows or fists only; you can’t say the word drink – this includes variations; no swearing – self-explanatory, and a nice way to have a clean night. If any of these rules are broken at any time the culprit must take a swig – you are master of your own destiny here!


21s is a great fast-paced-fun game to play before a night out, though we don’t recommend playing it for too long. The first player elects the position by saying ‘1 to my left’. The counting then continues – if one player says two numbers e.g. ‘2,3’ the game changes direction, if the player says three numbers e.g. ‘2,3’4’ then it carries on in the same direction but skips out a player. Basically you’ll have a circle of people shouting out numbers back and forth with the direction constantly changing, and if anyone messes up the system… they have to drink!

Any of these games are pretty safe to play as long as your drink isn’t a unit-laden one, and you only play them in moderation! Better still, all these drinking games are about having fun in a group dynamic as opposed to drinking something nasty on your own, with a video camera, for Facebook. Remember to drink to enjoy, and not to destroy!

Drinking Games Rules – Boxing

Posted by Luke

This is a simple game that draws a lot of parallels to real boxing, with a lot less punches thrown (we hope), though you do still technically have an opportunity to knock your opponent out, and have them dribbling on the floor. Here’s how to play:

What You Need:

A stopwatch/clock

2 shot glasses

4 people

2 dice



How to Play:

1. 2 people play this game at a time – just like a boxing match – with 2 other people assisting them, just like their corner men.

2. Each players sits at opposite sides of the table and rolls the dice. The player with the lowest score ‘takes a punch’ and has a shot.

3. The corner man fills up the empty shot as quickly as they can, then the player has another roll of the dice.

4. The game is played in 3 minute rounds with a 30 second break in-between rounds – again, like boxing.

5. The game is played until someone throws in the towel or pukes – though of course you could put a limit on the number of rounds to prevent this.

Drinking Games Rules - Flip, Sip or Strip

Posted by Luke

As far as drinking games go, Flip, Sip or Strip is nice and simple - which is good, because there is nothing worse than explaining complicated rules to a room full of drunken people!

This game works best with about 3-5 people, but can be played with more.

1. Flip a coin, and while it is in the air call heads or tails.

2. If you guess right, pass the coin to your right, if you guess wrong, pass the coin to the your left and either take an article of clothing off (anything in a 'pair' counts as one item) or have a shot!

3. You can not do one thing more than twice in a row. For example, if you chose to drink the first time, the next time you have to take some clothes off.

4. When you are completely naked, of course you can only drink.

5. There is no definite end or winner to this game really, though we think the most naked, drunk person is most definitely the loser!

Drinking Games Rules - Never Have I Ever

Posted by Luke

'Never Have I Ever' is one of the most popular drinking games, so it only makes sense it the first one we cover in our brand-new drinking games category! Basically, the idea is we're going to build a large collection of all the most popular drinking games so that you always have a trusty resource to fall back on, as well as give you inspiration for new party games.

In theory, you can play Never Have I Ever with any number of people, but we'd recommend around 5 people as a good place to start. And of course, before you start you will all need to pour yourselves each a drink.

1. Start by choosing the beginner - In order to decide who goes first you can either flip a coin, play rock, paper or scissors, or just randomly select a member.

2. Have the first player make their statement - The statement must be an act that person have never done before. For example, 'I have never been to a strip-club', in which case everyone who actually has been to a strip-club has to have a shot of their drink.

3. If in fact nobody has done it, and they don't take a drink, then the person who made the statement must knock back a glass themselves - This is where the game gets interesting and strategic. If you don't think anyone has done it, don't say it.

4. The game is decided by either who is the most sober, or who had to drink the least shots (so it makes sense to keep a tally of everyone's drinks) - Essentially, Never Have I Ever can go on indefinitely, though we'd recommend stopping when things get a little out of hand, as with most drinking games. Decide the winner based on how who is most sober, or who had to drink the least shots - the latter is obviously a lot more easily measurable.
